Welcome to your latest weekly salvo of circuit scorching strips, courtesy of our crack squad of creator droids, and if you like games as much as you do the Galaxy’s Greatest then you’re in Betelgeusian clover this week.

Out now, and available for FREE (yes, that’s right) from the Apple app store and Google Play, is Judge Dredd Crime Files, a new mobile card-battling game from independent developer No Yetis Allowed. Combining 3D animation with 2D animated comic artwork, and with storylines from current Dredd writers, you can experience what it’s like to be the 22nd-century lawman as you patrol Mega-City One, unlocking new weapons and characters, and tackling all manner of punks, juves, robots, muties and fatties!

If you want time away from the screen, why not pick up a copy of Osprey Games’ Judge Dredd: Helter Skelter, a scrotnig boardgame that sees no less than Sláine, Nikolai Dante and Johnny Alpha crash into the Big Meg. Featuring exclusive artwork from Chris Weston, Simon Fraser, Clint Langley and Rufus Dayglo, it’s a Thrill-powered mash-up where Brainbiter and electronux clash with bio-blades and Lawgiver. For all the info, head over to!

Elsewhere, this week’s thrill-packed prog contains yet more Judge Dredd, Defoe, Brink, Hope, and Fall of Deadworld!

Mega-City One, 2141 AD. Home to over 130 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. Crime is rampant, and only the Judges — empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law! Now, he’s travelled to the rogue nation of Guatemala, site of a robot coup, to investigate its nuclear capabilities…

An alternate 1940s USA. WWII is over, victory having been secured by occult means. Now, magic is a part of everyday life, its practitioners commonplace. Mallory HOPE is one such skilled operative, though calling on the dark arts takes its toll on the user. He’s also a private investigator, hired for all manner of down n’ dirty jobs, and now his services have taken him to New York to look into the dealing of the magical drug crow…

Now, following the disaster of the moon-bound rocketship the Isaac Newton, he’s investigating what’s behind targeted zombie attacks…


Kek-W (Script) Dave Kendall (Art) Annie Parkhouse (Letters)

The planet that eventually became known as DEADWORLD was once a regular civilisation existing in a dimension parallel to our own. But the end of days is coming, and creatures known as the Dark Judges are spreading their contagion, exterminating all life.
