Run Forrest Run, an Endless Runner Based on Forrest Gump

Posted by Tim-o-tato August - 29 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Finally, an endless runner based on a story I know and love. If we have any fans of Forrest Gump here – everyone should raise their hand – you might want to check out a new game on Google Play called Run Forrest Run.

In the game, which will remind you of any other endless runner game available, you play as Forrest Gump as he runs his way through Alabama and Route 66. Collecting coins while running helps you upgrade Forrest, which will allow you to run further in the game. 

It is definitely a cartoony type of runner, but should bring a smile to anyone who loves that classic film.

Run Forrest Run is free to download from Google Play.

Alone Android game lets you run riot in space

Posted by wicked August - 29 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

If it’s your dream to travel through space and fly endlessly across the different galaxies, you are one step closer to checking that off your bucket list. Well, virtually at least if you have an Android gadget that is. The developer of that simple but difficult game PUK has come up with another doozy with ALONE…, where you get to pilot a space capsule at light speed in another endless runner game, but this time with a galactic twist.

Instead of controlling your spaceship by tapping, you slide your finger in the direction that you want it to go, whether it’s up or down, as you evade asteroids, space rocks, debris, etc. It will take some getting used to, especially as the game is very touch sensitive, and you might find yourself screaming because you didn’t actually want the ship to go that way. And did we mention that this game is played at lightning speed and that your space ship is super duper fast?

The graphics are not that complicated and all you need to know is that you have to avoid all those debris flying through space from destroying your ship, all while trying to manoeuvre one of the twitchiest game controls ever. Good thing is that there are only three unlockable difficulty levels and two bonus modes that will be unlocked when you reach certain milestones. And while you’re playing the game, you have a great soundtrack to back you up.

You can download ALONE… from the Google Play Store for only $2.47. The single player game does not have any in-app purchase and should work with mid-level and above Android smartphones and tablets.

Deep Under the Sky Takes You on a Psychedelic Trip to Venus

Posted by Tim-o-tato August - 29 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

For the adventurers among us, how do you fancy a trip to Venus? Sounds intense, right? With the new game Deep Under the Sky, you can head to Venus, but you are in for one seriously trippy ride.

In the game, you play as a jelly fish-like creature who intends to take over the planet by shooting spores, then exploding them onto other weird creatures. There is only one button in the game, which controls your movements, your spore’s rockets, and then a self destruct of the rockets. 

To tell you the truth, it is a really weird game, but it looks absolutely mesmerizing. Most of the game is dark, but filled with the bright colors of unique creatures and explosions. The game has a relaxing soundtrack set to 80+ levels of challenging physics puzzles, so this one should keep you busy for a while.

Go check it out.

Top 5 Android Games: August 2014

Posted by Tim-o-tato August - 29 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

August has been a fantastic month to be a gamer on Android, with a few big-time titles seeing their release onto Google Play. PC gamers were treated to a couple of Steam titles making their way to Android, which allows them to get out from behind the desk and play those games wherever they see fit.

For those who might be curious, you don’t have to worry about seeing Swing Copters on this list, as that game might get my vote for worst game of the century.

Below are the Top 5 Android Games for August of 2014. 


1. Five Nights at Freddy’s (Play Link: $2.99)

This official port of a horror survival game was recently pushed to Google Play, making sure you can pee your pants whenever you have your phone near you. In the game, you play as a night time watch guard in a children’s pizza party shack, but watch out for robots dressed as lovable stuffed animals. If they see you at night, you’re dead.

The game has garnered a huge following of YouTubers who post their reactions while playing the game. And for only $2.99, if you enjoy horror titles, you can’t go wrong with this pickup.

2. ALONE… (Play Link: $2.49)

ALONE… puts you in the cockpit of a rocket ship, blasting its way through space debris. The main goal of the game is make it as far as you can without crashing into rocks, and let me tell you, it is not an easy task. However, the further you go, the more cool stuff you get to unlock through the game.

The title features a well-developed aesthetic, as well as an excellent soundtrack for speeding through space. While the controls may take a couple of deaths to get used to, the $2.49 price tag is well justified.

3. Unpossible (Play Link: $1.99)

Unpossible reminds me a lot of Impossible Road, but with less impossible. In the game, you zoom down a dark track, filled with changing obstacles. As you progress down the track, things start going faster, making it much harder to react to what is coming next.

The game has a real TRON look to it, with a dark landscape coupled with neon-bright lights coming from all angles. It’s quite pretty, actually. For only $1.99, this game can easily eat up your free time as you try to get further and further down the track.

4. Surgeon Simulator (Play Link: $5.99)

In Surgeon Simulator, one of my all-time favorite comedic games, you play as a surgeon who must perform some of the most intense operations right out of med school. What adds to its comedic value are the controls, which are nearly impossible to figure out.

Using a mixture of swipes, tapes, and pinches, you control tools that will bash your patient’s organs, crack their bones, and potentially save their life at the same time. While it does have a steep price of $5.99, this highly-developed title demands every penny of that $6.

5. Kapsula (Play Link: $1.99)

Possibly the most frustrating of the five titles listed this month, Kapsula is quite the challenge. In the game, you play as a small capsule that zooms down a road.

While driving, you connect to other capsules, but must find a way to disconnect yourself from the other capsules you pick up before crashing into obstacles. You can smash them into the same-colored capsules, or bash them into a same-colored wall. However, if it’s not the same color, you blow up and have to start all over.

The game costs only $1.99, so I highly recommend it as a time waster.

Five Nights at Freddy’s: fun, scary game with a freaky bear

Posted by wicked August - 29 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

If you’ve always had a childhood trauma regarding bears and animatronic toys, you better not download this newest indie horror game. The Android version of the PC game Five Nights at Freddys is something that just might keep you up at night and possibly ruin your childhood memories of fun, stuffed toys (if you had any).

The basic premise of the game is that it’s your first week at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza joint and your main job as the main security guard is to make sure that the titular bear and his other animatronic robot friends don’t go out and wreak havoc when the place is closed at night. Sounds simple and fun and exciting right? But of course it’s not, unless you enjoy viewing “footage” in the dark while robots scare you to death, literally (well, at least digitally).

You have no ability to fight back against these robotic monsters. Instead you have to watch over them by switching through several cameras and then closing doors to make sure that they don’t escape. To make it more difficult, the lights are limited because they conserve power between 12MN and 6AM. And there is even one room where there is no video, just audio, which is even more terrifying. Each night just lasts around ten minutes which may seem short but by the 2nd or 3rd one, you’ll probably wish it was shorter.

This point-and-click survival horror game shows that you don’t need elaborate story lines or gameplay to create a terrifying game, just clever imagery and character design. Five Nights at Freddy’s is available at the Google Play Store for only $2.99, with no in-app purchases at all.

Wipeout 2 Android game now has zombies,pirates, popstars

Posted by wicked August - 29 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

If you’re one of those who enjoys seeing people run, jump and dive, and of course be honest, fail at several physical challenges, then you must be a fan of the reality competition series Wipeout. The hugely popular show which has been on air for the past 6 years shows contestants competing in “the world’s largest obstacle course”. Now you get to compete once again in the show without even lifting your butt from your chair with the Android game Wipeout 2.

The first iteration of the game won various mobile game awards for its almost-as-exciting-as-the-show gameplay and so naturally, the developers would want a sequel. This time around, you have 135 more levels to tackle as you do your best not to, err, wipeout, at any of them (although admit it, the fun of watching the TV show is seeing people do just that). One fun thing about the Android game is that you get to be different zany characters and this time around, there are 10 new ones, including a pirate, a popstar and the inescapable zombie.

There are also 150 new kinds of obstacles plus if you want to unlock special rewards, you need to beat the Course of the Day. You can also indulge your competitive spirit by competing against your friends as your progress is shown on a social map and leaderboard. You can upgrade and customize your chosen character to give them more power through crazy costumes that will give them abilities like teleportation, speed boost, etc.

You can download Wipeout 2 for free from the Google Play Store. There are some in-app purchases so remember to fix your settings if you’re letting your kid play the game on your device, unless you want unauthorised charges on your credit card bill.

Wipeout 2 brings the big balls back to Android

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

Fans of the Wipeout TV show will be glad to learn the Wipeout 2 game has just arrived at the Google Play Store. Available for free, the game is based on a popular show in which contestants try to get through an obstacle course… and not an easy one.

As you can imagine, the game is very similar to the ABC series, except with a bit more flare and magic added to the equation. You can create your own character and choose its specific characteristics, which in turn make them better at certain abilities. Your character can get better with time and dedication, earning XP after beating each obstacle course.

Wipeout 2-2

Now let’s talk about these insane obstacle courses: they are definitely as fun as you have seen in the TV show. Even the “big balls” are included! The idea goes hand in hand with the original Wipeout game, which we reviewed in depth last year. You can give it a quick read to learn more about the franchise.

The game is simple and all you need to focus on is getting through those pesky obstacles. There is no way you won’t have at least a little bit of fun with Wipeout 2, so go ahead and download it from the Google Play Store for a quick run. It’s completely free, so there is nothing to loose.

PAX 10 Humble Flash Bundle brings the best indie games for any price

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

pax-10-humble-flash-bundle

Humble Bundle is well known for its awesome sales, in which users can pay any price for a set of games or software. The catch? You usually need to pay more than the average in order to get the best software in the set. We all know and love this open system, but today’s offer is a bit more special.

The PAX 10 Humble Flash Bundle kicks off this weekend’s PAX Prime gaming event (one of the largest of its kind). Featuring nothing but the best indie games at the convention, this Humble Flash Bundle offers some deals you may not want to turn down.

pax-prime

The system is running a bit differently this time around, though. Customers can pay any price for BADLAND Premium, Solar 2, Containment: The Zombie Puzzler and Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony Deluxe Pack. It’s important to mention not all games in this bundle are available for Android – only the first three titles formerly mentioned. Those who pay above the average (currently sitting at $3.28) can also get The Swapper and FEZ.

A couple extras may entice you to pay a bit more, regardless of the average price. Life Goes On and Cannon Brawl can be had for a set amount of $15 (or more). Paying this amount would also get you all the other games.

As with every other Humble Bundle, this PAX Prime edition is one hell of a deal, so go ahead and support by buying these games at their website! Don’t forget Humble Bundle also allows you to select how much of your cash Humble Bundle, the developers and/or the Child’s Play Charity get.

Official Port of Five Nights at Freddy’s Lands on Google Play for $2.99

Posted by Tim-o-tato August - 28 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Ready to be spooked? An official port of Five Nights at Freddy’s has landed on Google Play, priced at just $2.99. For those who may not have heard of this game, it’s a new survival horror game that is also available on Steam, taking place inside of a kid-oriented pizza restaurant. Think Chuck E. Cheese, but with a lot more demonic possession taking place. 

During the day, the pizza shop is filled with laughter and happiness, but come night time, the place is filled with extremely creepy robots dressed as adorable animals, all of whom would like nothing more than to destroy you.

You play as the shop’s night watch security guard, in charge of making sure nothing takes place at night. However, given that the robots need to move around the shop freely at night, or else their motors would lock up, you soon find that not only are these robots freely moving around, but they are hunting you.

You must survive your night shift without getting attacked, using the shop’s video surveillance system and conserving your precious power allotment.

Without going on and on about the game, head on over to Google Play and check it out. Please note, the developer notes that it takes quite a toll on your processor, so they recommend using a newer flagship device, preferably anything with 2GB+ of RAM.
