HandyGames likes to celebrate its birthday by giving you gifts. Well honestly, they're loaded gifts because when you take into consideration all the IAPs, they're going to end up making HandyGames lots and lots of money. But we're not ones to judge your IAP spending sprees or HandyGames' sneaky generosity scheme.
For its 16th birthday, the publisher is discounting 16 of its premium paid games from around $2.99 to just $0.16. And the offer isn't limited to the US, you should see it all around the world. For example, it's down to 300LBP ($0.15) for me in Lebanon, even though the lowest possible item price is 1500LBP, so HandyGames must have made a special agreement to discount it below that.
There were many real world ramifications from World War II, but one of the more relevant to our coverage on Android Police is that it gave developers material for no fewer than a zillion games. HandyGames saw success with its last WWII title, 1941 Frozen Front, and now the sequel known as 1942 Pacific Front is available for download. It's essentially the same thing but with less snow.
Game developer HandyGames has released a collection of titles ranging from topics as diverse as fending off Nazis in World War 2 to solving puzzles as a happy Viking to protecting your farm from aliens. If there's one thing each of these games has in common, it's wackiness. So when I say that the company's next game centers around cats, know that this won't be a Nintendogs-style experience. No, these are ninja cats. Ninja Hero Cats, to be precise.
People love cats. And do you know what else they love? Ninjas. Just make all the characters heroic, and viola - we have the premise for a game.
I could be mistaken, but I think someone might have made a game set in World War 2 at some point. Still, it's best to judge a game on its individual merits, and HandyGames has a lot of experience making games. 1941 Frozen Front is a turn-based strategy game that follows the rough outline of the famous Winter Campaign during WWII. You can play as the Soviets, seeking to repel the German invasion, or as the Germans as they battle toward Moscow.
This is a top down experience that plays a lot like a board game. Each piece can move a certain number of spaces each turn and attack once.
Tis the season, Android shoppers. Today there's a cavalcade of games from a variety of developers on sale in the Google Play Store, as well as some of Loud Crow's interactive books for children. We haven't seen any word of when this sale will end, so if you want any of the games or apps listed above, get 'em while they're hot. First, to the game shelf!
So, envision this for moment: you're a farmer. You have some killer crops of corn reaching their peak, just waiting to be picked. Then, disaster strikes - aliens come down from... wherever aliens come from, to steal your precious corn. You're left with but one choice: kill 'em all.
That's basically the premise of the new game Farm Invasion USA from HandyGames, the same crew that brought us Guns'n'Glory, Aporkalypse, and more. The game features, well... everything that you would expect from a game like this. Blood, guts, gore, aliens, weapons, and popcorn.
The game is free in the Play Store, so give it a go and save some corn.
Popular Android game developer HandyGames has released a sequel to its well received Guns'n'Glory tower defence game called Guns'n'Glory WW2. The original Guns'n'Glory was a Wild West themed game that put you in charge of mobile units which you had to place in strategic position in order to ambush settlers, stagecoaches and "the gold train". The original game took the concept of a tower defence game and put an intriguing spin on it by allowing the enemy units to fight back. So, what makes a great game that much better? Why a World War 2 themed sequel, of course!
Building on the popularity of the original game, HandyGames has wisely not made any significant changes to the sequel Guns'n'Glory WW2, save for an updated setting and improved graphics and gameplay.
If you just can’t stop gaming on your Android device, then now may be a good time to add some titles to your collection, since mobile game developers HandyGames have lowered the price on all of their ad-free games from $4.10 to $1.40. Now you can enjoy all kinds of android-gaming awesomeness for less money!
Seriously, who doesn’t want to spend a nice evening with Aporkalypse: Pigs of Doom – a puzzle game where you have to save the world from all sorts of piggy-badness. And who could pass on Hamster Homie, a 2-D sidescroller where you play the part of the thuggish-ruggish hamster, Tony, navigating through twists and turns to impress your scientist owner with your maze navigation skills.
