Compass Point: West – The New Comic And Game From IDW And Next Games


IDW Publishing have created a ten page comic book to launch a 3D mobile phone game, the wild western Compass Point: West. Next Games' first mobile game, they will also be distributing the comic along with IDW.

Compass Point: West is an engaging, free-to-play action strategy game featuring stunning 3D graphics, highly polished gameplay and a fun and rewarding card collecting system introduced in a new, original way to the mass casual audience on mobile. The game takes the player on a journey to the old Wild West where they join friends and saddle up for an epic adventure, exploring the open frontier while fighting the hostile takeover plans of notorious oil tycoon, Orville Driller. Along the way, the player will build their own outposts, collect cards to summon allies and encounter a wide range of characters, each with their unique personalities in their mission to save the Wild West.

The comic by TMNT's Tom Waltz and Philip Murphy is on Apple iBooks, Google Play and on while the game is freemium play on the iOS App Store.


It's the first of four planned games and comic titles called Compass Point – can we expect Japan, Brazil, and Alaska to follow? Just a guess, but hey.

Here's a look at the comic and game….
