Winning Kick review: Kick some soccer balls for charity

1

This year's World Cup ignited an unprecedented love of soccer/football in normally apathetic places like the USA. If you're a lapsed or casual fan of the sport, then serious soccer games like FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer might be too complex to pick up and play. Luckily, Global Gaming Initiative and React Games have a footie game that anyone can learn in seconds: Winning Kick.

Winning Kick is a free arcade soccer game that can be played with just one finger. Besides the simple and approachable gameplay, it features a great retro pixel art style that evokes memories of NES games like Nintendo World Cup. And best of all, in-app purchases support a charity called Charity Ball that provides soccer balls to children in developing nations.

Warhammer 40K Carnage Dark Angel update

Warhammer 40K: Carnage is an intense side-scrolling action game from Roadhouse Interactive set within the futuristic Warhammer 40,000 universe. It rings up a bit on the expensive side at seven dollars, but gives players a lot of bang for their bucks with two separate campaigns, alternate versions of every level, and endless loot with which to equip the playable space marines.

Did I say two campaigns? Now the game has three, thanks to today's Dark Angel Content Update. The update introduces a third playable character the turquoise-suited Dark Angel. Along with the new character and campaign come a new gun type, more loot, and other fixes. The game just got a lot bigger, but unlocking the new content might be a problem for some players. Find out more with our in-depth look at the update.

Timberman is the latest game you'll hate yourself for playing

21
Timberman

It's no Flappy Bird ... or is it?

Here it comes, kids. Timberman. Downloaded at least a half-million times. (But no more than 1 million.) That will change soon enough, no doubt, as it's being heralded as the next Flappy Bird. It's mindless. It's easy to play. It's got 8-bit-style graphics and sound. And you're already starting to see it written about in that vicious circle of navel-gazing, feed-buzzing, clickbaiting cliche that we thought we narrowly escaped when that damned bird stopped trying to get through those damned pipes.

Get ready for the story of Timberman. How it went from a slow start to an overnight sensation, capturing the hearts and minds of the world and advancing mankind toward some sort of greater somethingorother. Mission to Mars? Save the whales? Nah. Let's play Timberman.

So say hello to Timberman. As the name implies, he chops down trees. He eats his lunch. He goes to the lavatory. (Wait. That's something else.) The idea is that he's chopping on one side of the tree. Or he's chopping on the other. Tap either side of the screen to move him over and avoid the branches that threaten to end your game. The faster you chop, the higher the level you'll reach. But you have to pay attention to those damned branches on that damned tree.

Timberman is free. It has a lot of ads. You can pay to remove the ads. You can play against your friends.

And maybe, just maybe, you'll be able to forget about that damned bird. For a few more weeks.
