"Our library isn't very extensive," said Anne, "but every book in it is a FRIEND. We've picked our books up through the years, here and there, never buying one until we had first read it and knew that it belonged to the race of Joseph."
THE WRITING OF THE BOOK
<p>Most fighting games involve punches and kicks. But not Smooth Operator - it's a co-op kissing game in which you aim to give each other the most pleasure you possibly can.</p><p>It should be out on iOS in July hopefully. It'll also be coming to Android soon after.</p><p>Beardo Games has been working on Smooth Operator for the past year. It started off as a Ludum Dare game jam called Second Base made over a weekend. The team then decided to expand upon the idea for touchscreens.</p><p>Primarily, it's a two-player game that has you each choose a character - man or woman; anything goes - and then match tongue shapes while French kissing (aka snogging).</p><p>There are two different modes that test your reactions and memory. And there's also a freestyle mode for more experimental kissing techniques.</p>
Simple enjoyable graphics, as well as a variety of warriors, will allow you to plunge into the world of hidden kills and shadow warriors. Simple controls, as well as special abilities mechanics, will allow you to choose a warrior for your fighting style.One uses lightning for quick attacks, another can hide in the shadows, and the third throws off shurikens, killing enemies.Amazing soundtracks and full immersion await you in the world of ancient Japan. Over 3 different maps, plus 45 unique levels, each of which will have its own boss and smart opponent.
Fight Longer, Get Stronger<p>In a blog post earlier today Raw Fury confirmed that Kingdom: New Lands will be coming to Switch. Better still, we've only got to wait two weeks to see it.</p><p>
<p>Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen is back with Swing Copters, a hyper challenging twitch reflex game similar to its aforementioned avian precursor.</p><p>It will be available for free on iOS and Android this Thursday, on August 21st, with a 69p / 99c in-app purchase to remove ads.</p><p>Instead of playing a bird, Swing Copters puts you in control of a little dude fitted with an unfortunately jerky propeller helmet.</p><p>Tapping on the screen changes the direction your character is flying, from left to right, as it ascends into the air.</p><p>What makes Swing Copters even more challenging than Flappy Bird is the addition of moving obstacles. Rather than just evading beams on your ascent, you must dodge swinging hammers as well.</p><p>TouchArcade has an exclusive first look demo that you can check out below.</p><p>Nexon's hotly anticipated KartRider Rush+ has raced past 3 million pre-registrations in just one week. That's obviously quite a lot, especially for a series that hasn't exactly been a big name in the West for some time.</p><p>If this is the first you've heard of it, Rush+ is a content-packed arcade kart racer that will launch with 45+ tracks, 20 customisable karts, five distinct modes, and real-time multiplayer. </p><p>Nexon has worked to create a karting experience that can be enjoyed by newcomers and genre veterans alike, delivering an extensive story mode, time trials, speed races, ranked races, and more. You'll even have your own hub area to customise to your liking.</p>
<p>Etermax is vibing for the Christmas season by updating some of its Trivia Crack games with new features and special offers on iOS and Android devices.</p><p>Trivia Crack, and its sequels Trivia Crack 2 and Trivia Cars, is each seeing custom designs and artwork added to the games with a bit of seasonal flair sprinkled on top. As you take care of your pet in Trivia Crack, you can win the Christmas Pack, which is complete with accessories, cookies and credits to use with your pet. As for Trivia Crack 2, there are offers of new festive wheels, including a Christmas Eve and a Capricorn Season Wheel.</p>
O, that sad breath his spongy lungs bestowed,
Cracked many a ring of posied gold and bone,
