When I was a kid, my dad used to tinker with model cars. As I got a bit older, he started buying them for me, as well; first, the simple snap-together kits, eventually moving up to ones that required glue, and then on to completely blank canvas vehicles that needed paint, glue, and everything in between. Those took some time, but there was a real sense of accomplishment when it was all finished (assuming everything went smoothly).
A long time ago in a galaxy far away, a wise old man once said, "let go your conscious self and act on instinct." Little did we know at the time Obi-wan was not just talking about using The Force, but about playing the game Duet. This title just came to Android as part of the Humble Mobile Bundle 6 last week, and a few days later it arrived in the Play Store.
Cartoon Network has released Time Tangle into the Play Store, another game based on the Adventure Time cartoon. Instead of skiing, players are now tasked with punching. Lots and lots of punching.
In Time Tangle, there really isn't much that players can't fix just by swinging their fists. It's not exactly the best message to send to children, but they're smart enough to know better, right? Besides, this game is all about punching cute things, so it's okay.
The time has come to ready your body for another Square Enix port. As usual, you're in for a treat compared to the usual mobile gaming fare. But at the same time, these goods are going to cost you. The company has dropped Dragon Quest IV into the Play Store, and it won't hand it over until you pay $14.99.
Dragon Quest IV originally launched for the Nintendo Entertainment System in the early 90s, but it later appeared on the first PlayStation and the Nintendo DS in an updated form.
Order & Chaos is well-known for being one of the most comprehensive massively multiplayer online role-playing games to hit a mobile platform, but unlike many of its desktop contemporaries, the game doesn't charge players a monthly subscription fee (having done away with them in 2012). Instead, the upfront cost supplies players with all of the available content. This price has generally sat at $6.99, but it regularly dipped to 99 cents over the past few months.
The Play Store is really exploding with sales today. You could save quite a hefty sum if you jump on some of these deals now, so you might want to get your phone or tablet ready. Here comes an avalanche of sales.
In Skulls of the Shogun, developer 17-Bit has brought scores of undead samurai to the field so that they may engage in fierce turn-based battles... to the death. The game has been around since early 2013 when it launched for Xbox Live Arcade, Windows 8, and Windows Phone. Before the year was up, the game moved to PlayStation 4/Vita and iOS. In May of this year, it hit Mac and Linux as part of a Humble Bundle.
Gaming is one of the things Amazon touted quite a bit for Fire TV, and the company released an exclusive title called Sev Zero to show off everything its set-top box can do. The game is a mixture of tower defense and action shooter, which offers a unique blend of gameplay.
The company also released a companion app for the Kindle Fire HDX, which allows a two player co-op experience where the second player offers air support for player one.
Do you remember going to the arcade as a kid (... or an adult) and playing Crazy Taxi? The awesome soundtrack, the absurd physics? The almost unbelievable number of taxi drivers with unbuttoned shirts? Those were the good old days, and you paid for them - maybe $0.50 a pop for a ride in the Crazy Taxi seat.
Well, if you liked paying for Crazy Taxi by the minute then, you'll love paying for it on a regular basis now!
In what will surely be a crushing blow to at least four, maybe five gamers across the globe, Sony has announced that it is ending support for its branded PlayStation Mobile game store and platform. If you'll recall, that's the app and control setup that is (or was) exclusive to Xperia phones and tablets, plus a few select models from HTC and Sharp. In a statement posted to the Japanese PlayStation website, the company said that devices running versions of Android past 4.4.3 would not be supported.
