You knew it was coming. It is unavoidable. It is your destiny. Angry Birds is journeying to a galaxy far, far away. Today, a gameplay trailer was released that, in addition to revealing a pink Princess Leia bird (excuse me while I check off number 7 on my list of "Phrases I Never Thought I'd Have To Write"), shows our avian heroes wielding light sabers and shooting lasers out of their eyes to bring down AT-AT walkers.
Now you're talking, Square Enix. After releasing Final Fantasy after Final Fantasy to Android, the RPG legend has gotten around to releasing everyone's favorite non-terminal adventure: Chrono Trigger! For the uninitiated, what's taking you so long? This game has been out since the Super NES and has been emulated to death! Heck, it's even available on the DS. You're out of excuses now, it's time to play.
Now Androis users can also experience the entire, time-spanning adventure.
Nuns with guns. That's the premise of the new title from Frima Studio, Nun Attack. OK, maybe it's not the entire premise, but it's a big part of it. There's also a story (because you can't just give nuns guns without a story).
Here's the gist: five sisters are good and holy, when one gives in to the dark side and becomes the Fallen Nun. Now it's your job to control the four remaining nuns and fight the unholy army raised by her wickedness.
We know how you like your games. Engaging with a hint of hilarity and fantasy. Penny Arcade, legendary webcomic and gaming community taste-maker, has released the third installment in its turn-based RPG Penny Arcade's On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 to the Play Store. $3 gets you access to the entire adventure, extra DLC and a "rejiggered UI," which just sounds fancy!
If you've ever played Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, or been on the internet for five minutes, you should feel right at home in this game.
Viva Media has just launched its award-winning Crazy Machines Golden Gears to the Play Store (with expected Tegra Zone availability), looking to bring the Rube Goldberg-inspired dreams of a mad scientist to your mobile device while challenging players to use boards, boxing gloves, laser beams, and dynamite to achieve various goals in each level.
For now, the game features only its "Challenges" gameplay mode, which will take players through a series of levels each with their own end goal, but a "Create – Share" mode is promised to be "coming soon."
It's up to player to use various tools to accomplish those goals, but the levels get progressively harder as the game continues.
You're clearly not tired of zombies, are you? How could you be? They're the perfect surrogate for people in violent video games. Without worrying about any of the moral consequences, you can shoot, chainsaw, maim, electrify, incinerate, or nominate them for Oscars! Try doing that with a normal human being! In Zombiewood, the carnage takes place in a Hollywood (get it?) backlot, the one place you've always wanted to let loose and break stuff.
FIFA may be the undisputed king of football games on the console, but when it comes to mobile gaming, it's a totally different ball game.
Gameloft will be hoping that Real Football 2013 (also known as "Real Soccer 2013" in the U.S. store) can take advantage of FIFA 13's delayed arrival to the Play store this year, and amass as many downloads as possible, but how does it compare to its rivals?
We've all been there: some crazy moon phase happens, awakening hordes of sleeping monsters that are now dead set on destroying... everything. When that happen in my town, I usually grab some sort of diabolical weapon and start swinging it like a madman, destroying every beasty that comes towards me. For those who haven't had the pleasure of experiencing this fascinating event, there's TinyLegends - Crazy Knight.
This game comes to us from the iOS side of the world, where it has achieved quite a solid fanbase.
Ludia, a Canadian video game developer famous for board game and game show adaptations across various platforms, recently added a second entry to their Android catalogue with Family Feud and Friends, a game that looks to bring the Family Feud experience to your mobile device with "HD graphics" and a few compelling gameplay elements made possible by the jump from TV to mobile.
You may notice that, unlike its television counterpart, Ludia's game is called Family Feud and Friends.
Despite the fact that tens of thousands of games are available on Android, most of them are easily placed within genres that have been around for decades, or they simply copy the conventions of mobile-friendly games (tower defense, runners, physics games, etc). IT's refreshing to see a game like Sumioni: Demon Arts, which combines traditional platforming with the kind of touch-enabled gameplay mechanics that's only been possible for a few years.
