Friday App Sales: Grand Theft Auto Series, World of Goo, Hitman GO, and More

Posted by Tim-o-tato October - 24 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

A ton of great games are available through Google Play for a discounted price this week, such as true classics like GTA III, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas. If you think you might have a few hours to kill over the weekend, there are no better time wasters than that.

However, if shooting up cities is not your modus operandi, Hitman GO may be more to your liking. In terms of puzzlers, it is one of our favoties. To top it off, World of Goo is available, RBI Baseball 14 (go Giants!), the Great Little War Game franchise, and many more.

Take a look at the full list below.

Go support those developers!

Fellice Android game lets you play around with cell organisms

Posted by wicked October - 24 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

If you’re a frustrated microbiologist or you just have a thing for cell-like organisms moving around (and not under a microscope), then this new Android game might just capture your attention. No, don’t worry, it isn’t a tutorial about how cells reproduce and all that, but Felllice looks just like a microbiology lesson but more fun for those who don’t really understand it. The developer calls it as an “interpretative simulation game of cell life” but without all the lectures.

Felllice, which is a play on Cell Life, has just three methods for you to progress or win: move, eat and avoid. Of course you have to move around, since you’re supposedly a cell, and that’s what cells do right? Then you have to eat the smaller cells that you encounter in order for you to grow and expand. But beware of the larger cells you come across because if they manage to eat you, you’ll be reduced to your original size and you have to start all over again.

That’s all you have to do, and obviously, the game isn’t that complicated. It has a very minimalist design (black and white flat) and gameplay, but the sound design makes it a bit more fascinating with 5 different kinds plus a soothing ambient music. The arena mode lets you play against 25 different opponents, in case you get tired of the normal mode. Because the game is simple enough, you can play it while doing something else, in case that something else is something boring and monotonous and you like to steal a few minutes away from said task.

You can buy Felllice for $2.27 from the Google Play Store. There are no in-app purchases, so you are quite safe from (supposedly) unwanted or unauthorized charges.

NHL 2K brings hockey fun to Android devices

Posted by wicked October - 24 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

There is one sport that can get our hearts thumping, raise up our adrenaline, excite our senses and bring people from all walks of life together… that is, if you’re Canadian (or maybe some Americans as well). We’re not talking about football of course, but rather, hockey. And now you can enjoy all of the things that you love about the sport, albeit digitally, with the release of NHL 2K for Android. The new season of the NHL starts in a few days and this may be the perfect game to pump you up.

The game has several game modes that hockey fans will be able to enjoy (and maybe practice on for that weekend hockey pickup game in your neighborhood). Aside from the normal game, you can also play it in the Mini Rink mode with an arcade style of a 3 vs 3 game play, which makes the game even faster and more furious. If you’d like to enhance your shootout skills, at least through your fingers, you can use the turn-based penalty shooutout mode, where you can play against friends or other players using that mode as well.

The My Career mode is pretty interesting as you can create and custom a player, train and play him and follow his career all throughout several seasons. You can get him to play for actual teams in the NHL. The app also gives you live and updated rosters of the teams in the league so you can keep track of your favorite teams and players, even as you play the game while watching actual games on TV (or even live!).

NHL 2K is available at the Google Play Store for $8. Seems a pretty steep price for a mobile game, but if you’re a true-blue hockey fan, you wouldn’t really mind spending that much.

Micro Battles lets you play games with your friends on one device

Posted by wicked October - 24 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Do you remember the days when you used to play against your friends in game consoles while you were in the same space and using the same device? No? Well, if you’re of the generation that just plays on your own respective devices, here’s something new to try. And if you’re part of the generation that longs for the days when playing games used to be social, then here’s some throwback fun for you. Micro Battles is a new game on Android that lets you play with actual people while you’re holding a single device!

Same device multiplayer games are very rare nowadays, not because we’re selfish about our gadgets (or maybe we are!). But regardless of the reason, Micro Battles lets you do this on games that change everyday (more on that later) and in keeping with the “nostalgia” bit, they are of the classic 8-bit variety. All of the games go for the one vs one single button battle, which is unique in itself already. And since the battles change everyday, then you need to open the app and use it if you don’t want to miss anything. But if you don’t have anyone to play with, then the games would be useless. So yes, you need to go out there and reconnect with friends or make new friends, just to be able to play.

Some of the Micro Battle games includes a football (okay, soccer) game where you both get to control a single player each and get them to score five goals into your opponent’s goal. There’s also a cowboy dueling game where you just get one bullet each and try to hit your opponent, with the added difficulty of having cacti around you where your bullet might ricochet or something. There also seems to be a dog-fighting game (no actual animals were hurt don’t worry) and a battle-ax throwing game (no humans were hurt as well, maybe just their pride).

If you use the game’s free to play mode, you get to play one of the four featured games every day. But if you choose the $1.99 in-app purchase, then you get to play all of the games whenever you want. Get Micro Battle from the Google Play Store.

Rovio Launches RETRY, a Game That has Nothing to do With Birds

Posted by Tim-o-tato October - 23 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Brace yourself, you might be in for a shocker. Rovio, the company who beats you over the head with countless renditions of its one hit wonder Angry Birds, released a new game this week that has absolutely nothing to do with birds or pigs. Say what?!

The new game, called RETRY, is a funny little airplane game that tests how good of an aviator you are. You tap on the screen of the your phone to make the plane fly, while also trying to collect coins and not crash into the ground or hillside. The overall goal is to not crash, collect coins for upgrades, and then land perfectly. 

Surprisingly, this game does not make me feel like punching a wall just yet, but with its addictive nature, coupled with the fact that you might crash a lot, that time may come.

Price? Free. IAPs? You betcha.

Rovio’s Retry arrives to Google Play

Posted by wicked October - 22 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

retry

Generally Rovio sticks to what it does best, milking the hell out of the Angry Birds franchise. Every once in a while, however, the company branches out a bit and does something different, though many times its just a promotional tie-in app like Dreamworks’ The Croods.

With that in mind, the company’s internal LVL11 team has been working on a Flappy Bird clone for a while now, and it has finally hit Google Play. Before you groan “not another clone!”, it’s important to point out that this game actually has some twists to the gameplay that help it stand out such as interesting controls for flying the game’s plane. The game is also broken into levels, instead of being a “continue until you die” experience like Flappy Bird and more traditional clones of that game. At the completion of each level you even have to properly land the plane.

retry-2

So is it worth trying? That’s up to you, I’ve only messed around with it for a few minutes and found it to be similar enough to Flappy Birds to bring that same addictive-yet-frustrating experience but it’s also different enough that you feel like you playing something fresh and it seems a tiny bit more forgiving.

For those willing to give it a go, you’ll find it for free on Google Play, though there’s some in-game advertising and (surprise, surprise) in-app purchases as well. Even better, the game works with just about any Android device out there, requiring only Android 2.3 or better to run!

Hearthstone coming to Android tablets by year’s end

Posted by wicked October - 22 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

Hearthstone Paladin

Hearthstone, a free-to-play card game from developers Blizzard, has already gained tremendous popularity in the PC gaming sphere. As promised, an Android version is in the works and Blizzard has confirmed that the game will ship on tablets before the end of the year.

“we’ve got our sights set on a release for Android tablets, our next new platform, before the end of the year; we’ve just got a few more mana crystals to polish and some Angry Chickens to chase down.”

However, Android smartphone owners will have to wait a little longer to break out the card packs, as the developers are still trying to optimize the experience. The reason for the delay is due to the need for a revamped Hearthstone interface, allowing for seamless play on smaller screen sizes.

“Releasing Hearthstone on iPhone and Android phones is something we’re incredibly excited about, but ultimately we’d rather take the extra time to make Hearthstone’s user interface on the phone customized to feel great for the platform”

It looks like a smartphone version won’t be available until 2015, so I’ll still have some free time until then. Blizzard is also planning a further 100 card expansion pack to keep veteran players entertained, which could arrive in a similar time frame as the Android tablet release.

20 million people have already played Hearthstone all across the globe and a release on the biggest mobile platform is bound to boost the game’s popularity even further. Have you got this beast in your sights?
