Transformers: Earth Wars is launching a new aspect of gameplay called Raid Battles. Raid Battles are spread across different locations on Cybertron, each of which contain a series of raid bases. These raid bases are high powered, supercharged and rule-defying beasts with special buildings players will not have faced before, such as the Luxon Destabilizer, Railgun Cannon and Thunder Tower, each with its own unique powers. Alliance members will only be able to deal a small percentage of damage to a base with a single attack, so it will be important for players to coordinate their efforts in order to destroy each base. Participating in Raid Battles rewards players with our new unique Cybertronian Currency, Shanix. Using Shanix in the new store, players can acquire unique Power Cores, including new XP Boost Cores, Universal Combiner Sparks, Ore-13 and the ultimate reward, an exclusive 5-star Optimus Primal or BeastWars Megatron. App Store: Free (Offers In-App Purchases)

Donut County launches tomorrow for iOS, macOS, Steam, and Playstation 4. I’ve had the chance to play it a bit on my Mac, and it’s a fun game. Raccoons have taken over Donut County by using remote-controlled holes that they use to steal trash. The main character is BK, who uses a hole to capture his friends and their homes to win prizes. But he ends up falling into his own hole accidentally, where he is confronted by the residents. It’s a physics-based puzzle game. You can explore peoples’ homes, each with its own environment. You move the hole to swallow their stuff, which keeps getting bigger. You can combine objects inside the hole for special effects, like bunny breeding (yeah a little odd). You can also launch things back out of the hole, to solve puzzles or destroy stuff. Basically, the goal is to swallow up everything in Donut County. Mac App Store: US$12.99. App Store: US$4.99
