The creators of the popular Flick games (Flick Soccer and Flick Golf) have done it again, recently releasing NFL Flick Quarterback to the Android Market. The game combines the popular flick controls from Full Fat Productions' other games with NFL action, allowing players to "become the QB you’ve always dreamed of becoming."
Flick Quarterback offers much more than its controls and impressive graphics however. Players can choose from Playmaker and Trick Shot modes, which each offer their own unique gameplay twists.
Gameloft, the gaming studio behind such games as Modern Combat 2, N.O.V.A. 2 HD, and Asphalt HD, has recently released a new game for all you mythology and movie fans out there. If you're familiar with Gameloft's games, though, this may be a bit different from what you've grown accustomed to.
From the movie "Immortals", you play Theseus, a-hackin' and a-slashin' through all sorts of fun Greek and Roman mythology, including, but not limited to, minotaurs, titans, and generic disposable guys in strange armor holding swords.
Kairosoft, maker of the many popular Story games (such as Game Dev Story and Grand Prix Story), has released a new game called World Cruise Story. As with the other games, the title really says it all: your objective is to manage a cruise liner from top to bottom in order to meet objectives and make money, much like old-school games such as Sim City or Roller Coaster Tycoon.
Captain a luxury cruise liner, sailing the entire world while entertaining VIPs!
If there's one thing we love more than tower defense games, it's tower defense games that take a new angle or offer a different style of gameplay. That's exactly what we got out of the recently-released title Defenders, which lets you take on a more active role in your defense strategy. Check it out:
The game looks easy to pick-up-and-play, with ultra-simple controls: touch the screen to shoot arrows, drag and drop spell icons to cast.
About a month after CUKETA got us excited about Age of Defenders, their unique new take on tower defense has hit the Android Market. Of course I had to get a copy and check it out for myself. I wasn't disappointed.
At A Glance
First of all, Age of Defenders is gorgeous. The menus, loading screens, and of course the gameplay environments are all extremely polished and look great. Besides its aesthetic appeal, Defenders offers a lot in the way of functionality.
Superplay games made its first entry into the Android Market recently with Cosmonauts, a cartoony outer space “turn-based combat” game which spoofs cold-war drama by pitting you against a galactic superpower aiming to conquer space itself.
At A Glance
Cosmonauts is an amusing game that’s easy to pick up and play at any time. It offers familiar three-stars-per-level gameplay, but also allows for combat against real players. If you want to play with a friend, Cosmonauts offers a pass-and-play option, meaning you and your opponent share a device.
Shadowgun, a game we recently reviewed, is a Tegra-straining, visually impressive, polished action game that has been quickly garnering attention since it was announced. Looking to take players' experience over the top, MadFinger Games opened a thread on their own forums earlier this month, indicating that they were working hard on multiplayer capabilities for Shadowgun, asking for users' "wishes, opinions, or ideas."
Shadowgun is already a great experience, and at the low price of $4.99 US, it's an amazing value.
I've never really thought racing games could work on tablets or smartphones with touchscreen controls, maybe the upcoming title Race of Champions will change my mind. I sure hope it does, because by the looks of it, this game is shaping up to be awesome. Take a look at some of these screenshots:
Update: Here's the gameplay trailer, as well:
This will probably be as close as I ever get to driving a KTM Crossbow.
The Adventures of Tintin is certainly one of the most enduring comic book series, making its debut in 1929, and finally finding its way to the silver screen in 2011. Gameloft has expanded Tintin's domain recently, by releasing The Adventures of Tintin into the Android Market, bringing the wunderkind's sleuthing prowess and action-infused storyline to the palm of your hand.
The game looks to be a fun interpretation of the film adventure, tying in the characters we love from the original comics and a familiar storyline that's been adapted for the big screen.
