While The Secret of Grisly Manor wasn't exactly a smash hit, it was a huge cult favorite of those who enjoy Myst-style puzzle games. Now, Fire Maple Games (the developer behind Grisly Manor) is back with a new game. While the gameplay style is much the same as Grisly Manor, the setting is quite different - and quite beautiful:
Gamevil Inc. has done it again, bringing the latest entry in its Baseball Superstars series to the Android Market today. The game invites users to "step up to the plate for the best baseball experience on the Android Market," and offers the same vivid, dynamic animation and gameplay players have come to expect.
In Baseball Superstars 2012, players will enjoy a variety of improvements, including gesture and tilt controls, "smart AI teammates," and total control over team management and customization.
When you name your game "One Epic Game", you have one of two options: either fill your game with high-powered hardware, gnarly baddies, and over-the-top villains, or not take it seriously and call it ironic. Game developer Grip Games chose to do both. One Epic Game is a side-scroller set in a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies that's aware of just how trite that premise is.
OEG has a very self-aware sense of humor that feels like it shouldn't be as funny as it is.
You may remember that a few days ago, Double Fine Adventure (the studio behind Psychonauts and Day of the Tentacle) did the impossible, far exceeding their project's $400,000 goal on Kickstarter in just over eight hours (the project has raised over $1 Million with 26 days to go). Initially, Double Fine planned to invest extra proceeds in developing the studio's latest game for other platforms, with iOS and Mac being priorities.
The original Sims was the last Sim game I played. It had two expansions and didn't extend very far beyond a single neighborhood, but the things you could create and play around with in it were fantastic. The Sims Free Play has stuck to its roots with a similarly engaging and surprisingly powerful game for a mobile platform.
The Sim games are, at their heart, about creativity. The Sims for Android packs a lot of the same creativity tools from earlier Sim games.
Fragger is a new game from Miniclip.com that gives you a pack of grenades and a phalanx of immobile terrorists and says, "Have fun!" Once you've set aside your silly ethical hang-ups about attacking helpless, faceless enemies, you might think that the game is similar to Angry Birds. It's actually a lot closer to BASIC classic, Gorillas.

You know how it goes. You're sitting back in your recliner, watching your numerous security feeds, monitoring your piles and piles of cheese, when suddenly, the mice sneak in to steal all your Pepperjack and Gorgonzola! How dairy they! Also, you're a cat. That's the premise of Cheese Tower, a puzzle game that challenges you to remove square mice from a stack of square cheese without dropping any cheese.
Tapping the mice will make them disappear, causing the tower to begin to fall.
Nah-Meen Studios LLC recently released their debut game Meowch to the Android Market, bringing dynamic, cat-throwing fun to users everywhere.
The game follows the story of three stray cats, who are trying to find their way from the tops of various buildings to the ground, while simultaneously evading the grip of crazy cat ladies and animal control vans. On the way down, players will face off against power lines, bouncy awnings, and satellite dishes while trying to grab "Missing Cat" posters in a familiar "collect three stars" level system.
According to Pocket-lint, Sony is planning to bestow PlayStation Certification onto upcoming HTC Android smartphones by the middle of the year. What does said certification entail?
Basically, the PlayStation Suite project (of which PlayStation Certified hardware is a part) currently consists of a dozen or so ported PSX titles from Sony's back catalog - like Crash Bandicoot, or Syphon Filter. They work on PS Certified Android phones as well as the PlayStation Vita.
We certainly aren't a console video gaming blog, but when reviews of the US version of Sony's PlayStation Vita started cropping up this morning, I couldn't help but take notice of the new mobile console system's software. Particularly, how... smartphoney it looks.

Everything in Sony's Vita OS has been appified - Google Maps is there, while Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, and Skype apps are forthcoming. Sony has its own suite of apps as well, including a full-blown browser which, although it appears to be pretty terrible, is apparently the best on any mobile gaming device to date.
