Posted by wicked August - 28 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

humble_sega_mobile_bundle_games_added

Last week Humble Bundle announced the Humble SEGA Mobile Bundle, part of an effort to offer an Android based bundle every couple weeks. That is part of Humble Bundle’s new mobile section. What is not new is the standard procedure of adding new titles to a bundle after 7-10 of release as evidenced by today’s announcement of more titles for this particular bundle.

The new titles added to this bundle include two games – Sonic CD and Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition – and a live wallpaper, Happy Sonic! Live Wallpaper. These three titles join the other titles that can be unlocked by paying more than the average price for the bundle, which was $3.88 at the time of this article.

Google pulls all Swing Copters knock-offs from Play Store

Posted by wicked August - 22 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

swing copters

Fans of Flappy Bird may have been excited to download its sequel, Swing Copters, and then were either greeted by a cheap knock-off or disappointed to find that they had to sift through dozens of clones that were released before the official app even saw the light of day. Thankfully, Google has taken matters into their own hands and have removed all of the clones from the Play Store. 

Luckily for .Gears (the studio behind the popular app) removing the clones has marginally increased the number of downloads for the official app. Before they took action the official game had been buried at 63rd place in a search for “Swing Copters”, not a good start for such a highly anticipated game. This all happened after Dong Nguyen, the app’s developer, posted a short video of the game. Now that only the official app is available, it has been downloaded between 10,000 and 50,000 times.

Unfortunately this is not an uncommon occurrence in the Play Store, due to its open nature. By comparison, Swing Copters was released in the iOS app store on the same day and quickly reached the top 50, while it hasn’t even cracked the top 300 in the Play Store.

Pac-Man Friends comes to the Play Store with a unique twist on classic gameplay

Posted by wicked August - 21 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

pac man friends

Namco has released Pac-Man Friends onto the Play Store, which is a brand new Pac-Man games with new, fast-paced gameplay. It keeps all of the original cast of characters, including Pac-Man and the group of ghosts from the arcade games.

The game involves you moving Pac-Man through different types of mazes all while avoiding the ghosts. Instead of the traditional square mazes, though, these new mazes comes in different shapes and sizes with tons of obstacles to maneuver around. The flashing power pellets make a return, and they’ll still let you eat up ghosts that get in Pac-Man’s way.

All in all, there are 95 levels and 8 different friends to unlock, each of which gives Pac-Man a unique power up to clear levels. Throw in 5 different control schemes and daily rewards, and you’ve got plenty of content to keep you busy for a while.

The game does offer in-app purchases, so even Pac-Man isn’t immune to modern mobile game design, but it still looks like a pretty fun download. Hit the link below for the app and to check out some screenshots of the game.

Take a look at Swing Copters, Dong Nguyen’s first project since Flappy Bird

Posted by wicked August - 19 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

swing copters

While Flappy Bird still hasn’t made its way back to the Play Store, but creator Dong Nguyen has been hard at work on his next game. The new project is called Swing Copters, and it while it shares many of the same elements of Flappy Bird, it actually looks like it’s going to be more challenging, believe it or not.

The game puts you in control of a little man with a helicopter helmet. When the game starts, he begins flying either up and to the right, or up and to the left, and tapping the screen changes direction from left to right and vice versa. The objective is to float up through horizontal gates (similar to the vertical pipes in Flappy Bird) all while avoiding the swinging hammers attached to the bottoms of the gates. So instead of having only one obstacle to avoid, there are actually two pieces that will cause a game over.

Swing Copters definitely looks challenging while retaining the charm of Flappy Bird. If you liked the original, you’ll definitely enjoy Swing Copters, which is set for release on the 21st on the App Store and Play Store. If you didn’t care for Flappy Bird, this game probably isn’t going to change your mind. But hey, like Flappy Bird, it’ll be free and ad-supported, so you can at least test it out later this week.

Hit the link below to check out a video of the game in action.

Female Gamers outweigh their male counterparts with money, time, and loyalty

Posted by wicked August - 10 - 2014 - Sunday Comments Off

Female_Gamers_hires_v1

Gaming in general has long been an area controlled by the male demographic. However, due to apps geared towards a different demographic entering app stores, there has been a large influx of female gamers in the mobile realm. Some people may attribute the heavy female presence to Kim Kardashian’s game, but it seems that that is not the case.

Out of 19 categories for games, 9 of them are predominately comprised of female users, while 6 are male and 4 are split fairly evenly. The top two most popular categories are mostly female, showing just how large their presence is as gaming consumers. Females are 31% more likely to purchase items in-game, spend 35% more time gaming, and were 42% more likely to be playing a downloaded game after one week.

 

Female vs Male Gamers Time_hires_v1

This is great news for Google and the Play Store, but is also great for developers and ultimately Android users everywhere. Now that games are played by more females, advertising will become more diverse. More companies will be interested in advertising, bringing in more money to developers, allowing them to make better software for us to use.

Nuts! is a cute new endless ‘climbing’ game

Posted by wicked August - 9 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

If you’re looking for your next cute attack, check out this cool new game from Limbic, traditional purveyors of awesomely crafted games like Zombie Gunship and Tower Madness. This new game is an endless runner – or should we say, “endless tree climber” – called “Nuts!” which we think will be a sure hit with you and your family.

The search for the next great minute waster is always upon us, and after our tiff with the Timberman, Nuts! is a welcome cute addition to our game list. Users will control the speed and turns of a cute little squirrel called Jake. The speedy rodent can be controlled with smooth tilt controls, as users guide Jake up an infinitely tall tree.

As with games like this, you collect coins and power-ups along the way, making sure your lovable little character doesn’t run smack into a branch – three thwacks in the face and your cute critter has to restart his climb again in a new game. With power-ups and three tries, Nuts! can seem more forgiving than other endless games, but that is not to say that the speed of the game won’t challenge you.

This is, again, a very nicely-engineered and designed game that you can just pick up and play action without any hassle, and the cute 3D graphics make the game very easy on the eyes. The graphics in the game are well chosen, as they are adorable. The controls are fast and responsive. And the bonus? No annoying soundtrack song! Yey! Pick up the game for free at the source link.

Sony is no longer supporting PlayStation Mobile for Android

Posted by wicked August - 7 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

PlayStation_Mobile_01

Sony is ending its attempt to bring its wildly successful console gaming brand to Android devices. PlayStation Mobile, which launched in 2012, was a hub that allowed high quality games to be accessible for PlayStation Certified devices. That certification will no longer be handed out to any future devices. Sony is keeping the service running smoothly on such devices running Android 4.4.2 and below; however, anything with Android 4.4.3 and up are being left in the dark. With future versions of Android, there are no guarantees that PlayStation Mobile will continue to operate correctly with software updates.
