Stardew Valley coming to iOS this month, able to import PC saves

The mobile version of friendly farm 'em up Stardew Valley will debut on iOS at the end of the month, creator Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone has announced, with Android to follow. "And I'm sure that's nice for Appleers," you snidely butt in, "but I'd like to remind you that on RPS, PC stands for 'personal computer' not 'pocket computer'." Alright, pal. The brass neck on you.…

Valve’s local streaming Steam Link app hits Android & iOS

Valve's Steam Link app - a beta version, at least - has rolled out onto Android, with an iOS version soon to follow. Now folks with any kind of modern tablet, phone or other free-roaming screen will be able to play their PC games library anywhere in the house through the power of low-latency video streaming, assuming your home Wi-fi is up to par. You'll need a…

Free Steam Link app for Android & iOS makes your Steam library mobile

When Valve practically started giving away Steam Link boxes for little more than price-of-postage, I assumed that the company was stepping away from the concept of in-home streamed gaming. Today's announcement suggests the idea is very much alive and well at Valve: soon you'll be able to play games from your Steam library through most iOS and Android devices via an official and free Steam…

You Can Play Pokémon GO On PC, Sort Of

If you're anything like me, you're surrounded by people - and an internet - that won't stop talking and writing and buzzing about new Niantic/Pokémon Company/Nintendo mobile game Pokémon GO [official site]. Perhaps, like me, you're feeling a little left out because you had resolved to wait for the game's release in your country rather than using a workaround to get it early. Perhaps you…

Tiny Robot: Yet Another Sneaky Android Review

I am aware of the parody of myself I've become. I sit at my desk from 7am each day, writing about or playing games, and then when my day is over and I've a spare few minutes, I relax by playing some games. And as I sit in front of the TV of an evening, I also play some games. And as I fall asleep…

Towering Inferno: Highrise Heroes – Word Challenge

I first played Highrise Heroes [official site] on an Android device and now it has arrived on Steam (Windows only). It's a word game and the genre is one of the few I consistently enjoy on diddy touchscreens. Highrise Heroes differentiates itself from similar letter-shuffling word-building entities by imprinting a mystery/disaster story across all of its levels and systems. It's as if Raw Danger has…

Tiny Robot: Some Sneaky Android Game Reviews

Shhhhh, don't tell the others! The thing is, I think I spend as much of my time playing games on Android devices as I do on PC these days, partly because family responsibilities mean being out of my office chair more often, and partly because my phone and tablet afford me opportunities to play games where my PC doesn't reach. And heck, if we can…

So I’ve Been Playing Android Games On My PC

I've cracked it! I've discovered the formula for eternal and invincible perversion! I have, this day, established a way in which PC gaming website Rock, Paper, Shotgun can post about intriguing mobile games without the slightest concern that we're stepping beyond our self-elected remit! Well, maybe a little, occasionally, hesitantly, sideways. Three exclamation marks in that introduction. That's how pleased I am that a program…

Turn Your Phone Into A PC Peripheral With Power-Grid

Hardware makers Roccat were so excited about this that they ran a countdown with the sarcastic slogan: "Isn't PC Gaming Dead?" Now in my view, only nuclear war or Waitrose's Butter Chicken deserve a numerically decreasing build-up. Roccat's reveal can't match the horror of an atom being split, or the happy ping of a microwave delivering mock Indian tastiness, but it is neat: Power-Grid turns…

Impressions: Steam Mobile

I've been fiddling about with Valve's first iPhone app, Steam Mobile . Normally when a developer makes a leap to the mobile world, we wouldn't give it a second thought, but Valve's iPhone and Android app is Steam without the games and can affect what's on your PC, so it's worth talking about. That and I just tapped out a chat to Alec while I…
