StackSocial has pay-what-you-want Android game bundle

Posted by wicked August - 27 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

Humble Bundle, there’s a new kid in the game and they’re virtually coming for you. StackSocial is offering a very special pay-what-you-want deal for their Handheld Hero Android Gamer Bundle. There are seven games available but to get more than two in the bundle, you need to beat the average amount that most people are paying. The other good news is that 10% of what you pay will go to one of three organisations they support.

The 7 games available in the bundle are a mixed bag of mobile games that should appeal to most gamers. Bad Hotel challenges you to build a hotel as fast and as high as you can before it gets destroyed by several “bad” elements like seagulls and yetis. Incredipede is a weird and challenging game where your avatar needs to get to the beam of light at the end of each level but along the way it grows new limbs and muscles until you become a centipede-like creature. Rebuild is a strategy game where the survivors of a zombie apocalypse build a fort and protect it against, you guessed it, zombies.

Savant – Ascent is an action-platformer game where you are the titular Savant and you have to battle robots in order to reclaim your gothic castle. Syder Aracade HD is a “nostalgic” game that will bring you back to the gaming days when blasting aliens in their 8-bit glory was the most fun most of us ever had. In keeping with the space theme, Walking Mars is another alien-centric game but instead of just blasting them to smithereens, you need to go on an actual adventure with puzzle-solving and strategy-building. Lastly, Zombie Gunship lets you gun down those pesky zombies, but not with shotguns but with a heavily-armed AC-130 aircraft because of course, it’s more fun that way.

Right now, the average that you have to beat is just $4.27 but it will probably go higher in the next few days. As we mentioned earlier, 10% of what you pay will go to one of three charities that you can choose from: Child’s Play, World Wildlife Fund or Creative Commons. Instead of an app, you will be given a list of APKs so you can install the games manually. The sale will end in 12 days so better make up your mind if you’ll bite.

Swing Copters Receives Update, Should Make Game Playable

Posted by Tim-o-tato August - 26 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

Were you one of the people who downloaded Swing Copters on day one, only to find out it was the hardest game ever released, then immediately uninstall it? Well, if you are interested, you may want to give it another try today, as the game’s well-known developer, Dong Nguyen, has released an update which attempts to make the game a bit more playable. 

In the update, when you begin an attempt, you have a bit more breathing room with your copter before you reach the first set of mallets and platforms. This should help you stabilize your copter’s navigation controls, which are some of the more sensitive controls ever created for an Android game.

What’s funny, is that even after re-downloading this awful game, I still can’t get past 2. Taking myself as a pretty hardcore gamer, I am both embarrassed and infuriated.

So far, this guide is the only legit way I have found to beat this game.

“Name Your Own Price” for Great Bundle of Games Through StackSocial

Posted by Tim-o-tato August - 26 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

There is a new place to grab bundle deals on Android games this morning, that being StackSocial, a website dedicated to finding and hosting the best deals on the web. This morning, the website announced a new promotion for Android game lovers, offering seven titles on a “name your own price” platform, while also offering to donate a portion of the proceeds to certain charities.

As for the games offered in the bundle, if you pay more than the average price, currently sitting at $4.20, you can score Zombie Gunship, Incredipede, Bad Hotel, Waking Mars, Rebuild, Syder Arcade HD, and Savant – Ascent. If you purchased these games individually through Google Play, you would be looking at about $16 worth of titles.

Unlike Humble Bundle, where buyers can choose what percentage of the money goes to a charity, StackSocial is automatically taking 10% of all purchases and donating to a charity of your choose, out of three preselected organizations – World Wildlife Fund, Creative Commons, and Child’s Play.

As we always do, we highly recommend grabbing these bundle deals. Not only do you get awesome games for a steeply discounted price, but you can help a great cause at the same time.

Unpossible Racing Game is Impossible Road Meets TRON

Posted by Tim-o-tato August - 22 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

There are particular visual cues that remind me of things I have seen before, especially when it comes to movies and art in general. The newest game to catch my eye on Google Play, titled Unpossible, throws you right into a fast-paced world that looks straight out of TRON. 

In the game, you move down a rotating path, avoiding large obstacles, while also twisting yourself around a track. As you progress in a level, the speed gets faster and the objects get much larger. The overall objective is to see just how far you can make it down the road.

For anyone who has played Impossible Road, it is much like that game, but not nearly as hard. This game could actually be mastered, unlike Impossible Road that takes not only skill, but luck too.

The game costs $1.99 on Google Play, and for fans of racing games or Impossible Road-like titles, definitely check it out.

T.E.C 3001 and Z Steel Soldiers are Tegra-optimized Games, Now Available on Google Play

Posted by Tim-o-tato August - 21 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Two new Tegra-optimized games are available on Google Play this week, T.E.C 3001 and Z Steel Solders. The games are promoted as perfect games for any new Tegra-powered device, such as the SHIELD Tablet or SHIELD Portable. And of course, if you have a SHIELD Controller for your Tablet, then checking these games out should be high on your list. 

Think of T.E.C 3001 as a super advanced Temple Run, which has you playing as a robot/Android character, jumping and dashing through levels in a futuristic environment. However, instead of an endless task, there are 41 levels in the game, full of bonus areas, unique achievements, and much more.

In Z Steel Soldiers, you strategize your way through another futuristic world, much like you would in StarCraft or Warcraft. You build your defenses, raise an army, and then absolutely dominate anyone who opposes your forces. Tegra enhancements include a Battle Cam, more awesome explosions, highlights on water, and more detailed shadow effects.

Both games come with premium price tags, with T.E.C priced at $5.28 and Z Steel Soldiers priced at $6.99.

If you own a Tegra-powered device, check them out.

Pac-Man Friends Hits Google Play, the Same Dot-gobbling Action With a Twist

Posted by Tim-o-tato August - 21 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

The Bandai Namco folks have pushed a new Pac-Man game to Google Play this morning, titled Pac-Man Friends. In the game, you get to play as the same awesome Pac-Man character, but instead of gobbling along a track, you get to move freely within countless different mazes. 

Of course, you collect fruit and avoid ghosts, but you must also unlock and play as Pac-Man’s friends to make it through the game. There are smaller little Pac-Mans to get you through tiny spaces, as well as bigger Pac-Mans to help you bop baddies.

The game is free to download, but does feature in-app purchases to help you along the way.

If you are a fan of the Pac-Man series, go check it out.

Humble SEGA Mobile Bundle brings Sonic at budget price

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

Barely a week has passed since Humble Bundle‘s last Android campaign and here they are again, this time with a more thematic twist. Pay what you want or beat the average to get your hands on some of SEGA‘s Android pieces, which practically equates to a lot of blue hedgehogs rolling around.

With a minimum cash “donation”, you will be able to download three SEGA games. Sonic 4 Episode I probably needs no introduction and is what you presume it would be: Sonic the hedgehog running around, collecting points, avoiding obstacles and fighting badies. All from your Android device of course. ChuChu Rocket’s name, on the other hand, is a bit misleading. OK, there’s a rocket involved, but nowhere in the name does it clue you in that it would be a literal cat and mouse, or mice, game. Virtua Tennis Challenge brings you back to the real world, somewhat, by giving you a chance to earn the title of a tennis pro without even lifting a racket. But hey, playing a game on smartphone is hard work too!

But wait, there’s always more! Beat the average and you get, of course, more Sonic. Sonic 4 Episode II, as you might have guessed, lets you continue your running adventures from Episode I. Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing gives your, really Sonic’s, feet a rest by jumping on cars and racing with friends. Yes, four player races right in the palm of your hands, so to speak. And the All-Stars part means you don’t have to stick with Sonic if you prefer some other SEGA figure to be your champion. Crazy Taxi is as crazy as it sounds, letting you take the driver’s seat in a make believe world where reckless driving gets you more points.

As always, the average to beat rises daily, so better put in your payment while it’s still at a low $3.80. Beating the average also unlocks future games that may be added later, usually halfway through the bundle campaign, which ends on September 3. These games are offered DRM-free so you can actually download them, using the fresh new Humble Bundle Android app, of course, and pass them around if you wish.

Dong Nguyen’s Follow-up to Flappy Bird, Swing Copters, is Now Live on Google Play

Posted by Tim-o-tato August - 21 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

The follow-up game to Dong Nguyen’s Flappy Bird, Swing Copters, is now available on Google Play for everyone to enjoy. Or hate. Probably hate. In the game, you use your finger to tap a little helicopter through swinging hammers and platforms. To say the game is hard is quite the understatement, as I personally find the game nearly impossible. 

Each tap of your finger changes the copter’s direction. To go straight up, you rapidly tap on your display. As hammers are swinging in front of you, while you are also dodging platforms, the little copter’s body is constantly swaying around, making it nearly impossible to perfectly direct him to where you want to go. I assume that unlike Flappy Bird, this game will actually take a bit of practice to master its wonky controls.

So far, after playing for 15 minutes, I can’t even get past 1 because the controls are so jacked up. If you can do better, congratulations.
