Often I see plenty of Android gaming news scattered around the web, but with very little on offer to centralize this type of information. I figured I could bring you all some of the more interesting tidbits I found, by way of a collection post on AP. This way, when so much of Android's gaming news trickles out, I can collect the more intriguing bits. Which should keep you all from being inundated with post after post of gaming centric articles, while also staying up to date.
So without further ado, lets get into some Android gaming current events here folks! Read More
Asmodee Games are the makers of some pretty big hits, including the video games adaptations of Pandemic, Ticket to Ride, and Mysterium. The developer now has two new games out on the Play Store, both of which look pretty good.
Mage the Ascension: Refuge is a role-playing game set in Sweden. It's set in the present day and features political upheaval, which by now we should all be used to. In the game, the power of True Magick can change reality based on the force of belief, which obviously has some pretty big ramifications for the world at large. Read More
As you probably know by now, Google has a tradition of changing the Google logo for various events, holidays, and birthdays. This year, the logo is being changed every day leading up to Valentine's Day, with a mini-game for each one. Read More
I have a weakness for adorable puzzlers. Mix some colorful environments, smart gameplay mechanics, and a cute creature that makes hilarious sounds, and I'm smitten for hours. That said, it's a miracle that I was even able to put my phone down to write this post. Splitter Critters is just kryptonite for me. As Alex and Penny would say, "OMG cute, so cute, supa cute(...) Suh cyuht!"
You're in charge of those small adorable blue critters in Splitter Critters and you need to guide them back to their spaceship. They're alien critters and they seem to be lost, it's just your duty as a human to help them. Read More
Zen Studios is well-known for its pinball games of popular franchises, such as Portal, Marvel, The Walking Dead, and Star Wars. The company is back with another one entry to the series now, themed by game developer Bethesda titles.
The three franchises used here are The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Fallout, and DOOM. I would compare the gameplay on these three pinball tables; however, because of the game's in-app purchases, I have only managed to play the Skyrim one. Which was fun - it reminded me of wasting away hours on the Windows XP pinball game. To play the Fallout or DOOM tables, you either have to pay real money for in-game coins, or earn money on the Skyrim table. Read More
Love is in the air, love is all around me... sorry, that's Love Actually. Either way, it's Valentine's Day soon, and Niantic is getting into the spirit of things, with Pokémon GO having its first in-game event of 2017.
From February 8 to February 15, players will be able to gain double the amount of Candy while catching, hatching, or Read More
dispatching transferring Pokémon, while Buddy Pokémon will be able to find Candy twice as fast as normal for their Trainers. Furthermore, a host of adorable, lovable pink Pokémon, including Chansey, Clefable, and Porygon will have increased spawn rates (everyone say 'aww').
Fire Emblem and I go way back. I have played many of them, but the one I most fondly remember is Path of Radiance on the Gamecube (the one that introduced Ike). The series is known for its turn-based tactical gameplay with anime-styled characters and common JRPG story elements. Nintendo has done a good job at promoting the series throughout its lifetime, especially when it comes to the 3DS releases, and inspiring loyal fans to pick up the latest title. I am not ashamed to note that I am in that demographic. So when Fire Emblem Heroes was announced, you can bet that I got damn excited. Read More
We've not had a Humble Mobile Bundle since November, so it looks like it's time for another one. In this bundle are RPGs, including a Star Wars title and two Shadowrun games.
Paying more than $1 will net you three games; Symphony of Eternity, Doom of Destiny, and Evoland. The first, Symphony of Eternity, is an anime fantasy role-playing adventure, which has the classic top-down, pixel art approach. It's $3.99 on the Play Store, so... yeah. Doom of Destiny (these titles are like some awful self-published fantasy series) is described as the 'nerdiest adventure of your life' on the Play Store. Read More
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon games for PlayStation, XBox and PC are hugely, hugely popular. The new title in the series, Ghost Recon Wildlands, is due to be released on March 7. To tie in with this, a companion app, Ghost Recon Wildlands HQ, has been released by Ubisoft on Android.
The main game's storyline revolves around the ghosts being inserted into Bolivia to destroy a powerful drug cartel and discover the connections between the cartel and the Bolivian government. Once it's released in just over a month's time, the app will sync up and show real time intelligence information and other useful items. Read More
The games of Japanese game developer Kairosoft are known for their gameplay and the distinctive pixellated art style. There's a new one out now, named 8-Bit Farm which... you guessed it, simulates a farm in 8-bit graphics.
It's pretty similar to Kairosoft's other offerings, in that you build something - in this case a farm. Build the best farm possible and attract as many visitors and 'agritourists' to see the flowers that are laid. Or raise the best livestock of any farm in the region. Alternatively, produce the best crops. It's really up to you. The game has a tutorial at the start, but generally leaves you alone after that. Read More
