Remember the colorful and imaginative tower defense game Jelly Defense that we took a look at several weeks ago? It just received a mighty nice update that brings some new winter-based levels, new gameplay options, new music, gameplay improvements, and performance enhancements. In other words, the developers packed quite a bit of punch into this one. Here's the full changelog:
Ever since we reviewed Ski Challenge 12, I have been on the hunt for an equally incredible snowboarding game. Com2uS ended my search with the release of SummitX Snowboarding, a ridiculously awesome downhill challenge game for those of us who enjoy boarding more than skiing.
First Things First
I would like to mention a minor complain before we go any further - SummitX is listed as free in the Android Market and nowhere in the description does it mention payment of any kind.
After a few months of waiting, Modern Combat 3 has finally hit the Android Market. Adding another chapter to Gameloft's popular FPS war series, MC3 promises "the deepest and most intuitive FPS gameplay on smartphones," taking players through a 13-mission campaign from Los Angeles to Pakistan.
Besides plunging players into a variety of immersive environments, MC3 offers impressive multiplayer capabilities, allowing for up to 12 players in 6 maps and 7 different modes.
This is part 2 of this weekend's poll; for part 1, please see How Many Apps Did You Purchase During The Market "10 Billion Promo?"
As promised, we have a second question regarding the recently over 10-day $0.10 "10 Billion Promo" sale, inspired by numerous comments on the sale posts and via Google+/Twitter/Facebook.
Yar Matey! Take to the high seas and plunder all in your path! Disney's new social game, Master of the Seas, promises to be "the first mobile game to combine deep story and brilliant graphics with compelling social gameplay."
In this 'Pirates of the Caribbean' themed game, you'll be able to become the ruthless pirate you've always dreamed of being, build a loyal crew, and battle other players for notoriety and treasures.
If, like me, you're a fan of the action-horror genre of gaming, then you'll be pleased to know that Dead Space just landed in the Android Market, leaving its EA Store exclusivity behind.
This gripping sci-fi thriller not only brings intense gameplay to your mobile, but a rich storyline and cinematic horror that is sure to chill you down to the very bone. Stunning visuals, along with a movie-quality score make this game a must have for anyone looking for more than simple puzzle games on-the-go.
Following up on last week's editorial, I decided it may be interesting to take a look at the other side of the story – that is, what effect has Google's 10 Billion App promotion had on the developers who were invited to participate?
To begin with, I think it would be wise to take a look at just how developers were invited, and how Google ran the promotion overall. We've heard from a handful of developers about this, so we've got a pretty clear picture of how things went.
Looking to give players the experience of "truly carving down the mountain," Com2uS has released SummitX Snowboarding to the Android Market - a dynamic, exciting game focused around – you guessed it – snowboarding.
The game features 36 multi-branching courses on 6 different mountains, 10 customizable boards, a "majestic" 3D terrain, accurate "true-to-sport" physics, and a sound track featuring over 20 real rock bands. Overall, the game seems to function smoothly, and gameplay isn't too challenging, even on a 4.3" screen.
Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and the awesome 10 Billion Apps promo, sadly, reached its final day. I wish it could go on forever and become a regular thing, at least with one app a day - how about it, Google?
Today, we have 8 new apps/games and 4 repeats. Here they are:
- Camera Zoom FX
- Shine Runner
- Puffle Launch
- Talking Ben The Dog
- Heavy Gunner 3D
- TileStorm HD
- Majesty: Fantasy Kingdom
