Gun Commando by Ripstone Ltd.
Gun Commando is a fusion of classic shoot-em-ups and first-person shooters with a unique and action-packed campaign. Earth has been taken by alien forces, and all that stands between the oblivious civilians and their grim fate is you; a war-torn veteran commando with a large arsenal of advanced weaponry.

3w ago - Appy Entertainment Brand Director Paul O'Connor announced that Trucks and Skulls hits PlayStation Mobile today.
Below are the details, to quote: Appy Entertainment is excited to bring our award-winning physics puzzler, Trucks & Skulls, to PlayStation Mobile later on today. This is a subtle game that invites you to explore your feelings and pick pretty flowers, a game that firmly positions itself at the center of the games-as-art debate, a game that...
Oh, wait. It's not that at all. Trucks & Skulls is the game where you SMASH NITRO-BURNING MONSTER TRUCKS INTO PILES OF LAUGHING SKULLS.
We made Trucks & Skulls because we wanted to blow stuff up. It really was that simple. We felt the physics-puzzler genre could use a good boot to the backside with a game full of things that explode, so we created the loudest, most obnoxious, most explosive game possible. Trucks & Skulls is a fuel-soaked, heavy metal ball of boom. Playing our game is guaranteed to raise your blood pressure, and lower your IQ.
The physics model used by the game is quite sophisticated, but you should check your sophistication at the door - this really is an angry and exuberant game that doesn't take itself seriously. There's no hidden meaning. Trucks are good, Skulls are bad. Destroy Skulls!
5w ago - Sony PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Paul Sullivan confirmed that Bloodred Wyvern is out this week on PlayStation Mobile.

Bloodred Wyvern is an arcade style third-person rail shooter game. Fly your wyvern and take on enemies throughout nine intense and action packed levels.

Earth is under attack by hundreds of extraterrestrial troops who want to take control of Earth and eliminate all human life. Your mission is to combat the aliens to protect humanity and save the planet.

7w ago - XMPT Games Developer Luke Staddon announced today alongside a video that Monster Hotel is now available as part of their PlayStation Mobile spotlight.
To quote: I'm Luke, from XMPT Games: a small, five-person indie development studio based in Southampton, England. We've been together as a company for less than a year, and are best known for our PS Mobile release, Penguin Party.
We started XMPT Games because we all love playing games and we wanted to start releasing our own. We had all dabbled in various aspects of game development, and decided that it would be fun to see what we could create by working together.
We love taking part in game jams - pitting our design, coding and graphics skills to the test against a time limit - so for our second PS Mobile title we decided to run our own internal game jam.
Picking the theme of the game ourselves just didn't seem in the spirit of game jamming, so we put out a request on our Facebook page for people to suggest topics around which we could base our game.
We ended up with about 50 different responses, and the next day we threw all of the suggestions into a hat and picked one out at random. The winner was "Harmony".
After discussing a whole bunch of ideas, we eventually settled on the concept for Monster...
