Back in July 2014, Magic Pixel Games and Bandai Namco announced Outcast Odyssey, the pair’s collectible card battle game, for mobile. The game has now officially launched on iOS and Android devices, taking players to a world where the strategy of card-battle games meets RPG-inspired dungeon crawling. In Outcast Odyssey, users explore environments to collect new cards, hopefully creating a stronger deck with every encounter.

Rovio has announced the launch of Angry Birds Transformers on iOS devices, alongside the release of special characters in an Angry Birds Transformers TELEPODS product line from Hasbro. The game takes place after a mysterious EggSpark crashes into Piggy Island, triggering a war between the Autobirds and Deceptihogs.

Both offer plenty of fan service to players, as they contain popular moments from the show as interactive elements on the tables.
Part-time indie game developer Dominic Hamelin-Blais has released Bunnies’ Empire on iOS and Android devices. The game pits a bunny military force against an evil clan of foxes, who wish to destroy the bunnies’ gardens.
