G.I. Joe: War On Cobra is the latest collection-based strategy game to arrive on the Play Store (Update)

D3 Go! has announced today that its next mobile game is called G.I. Joe: War On Cobra, and it will be officially launched on Android on January 20th. The title is already available for pre-registration on the Play Store, and for the most part, it would seem that this will exist as a branded release that contains the same amalgamation of gameplay mobile gaming is best known for. So if you're looking to play yet another gacha game that's betting on '80s nostalgia to get people interested in a title built around the same shallow card-based strategy mechanics we've all experienced over and over again, I suppose G.I.

Piffle is a cute arcade puzzler from Hipster Whale, the creators of Crossy Road

There is no doubt that Hipster Whale is best known for its immensely popular endless arcade hopper Crossy Road, but did you know this is also the same company that developed Pac-Man 256 and Shooty Skies?

Life, uh, finds a way... out of beta: Jurassic World Alive app gets official release

Two months ago I wrote a piece about Jurassic World Alive that talked about how the game was scheduled for an official release sometime in the Spring. Well, it would appear that the developers have stayed true to their word as Jurassic World Alive is officially available on the Play Store as of today. If you weren't already aware, this is an augmented reality game all about collecting dinosaurs. Think Pokémon GO, but instead of collecting hundreds of adorable make-believe creatures, you will be venturing out into the world to obtain the most fearsome dinosaurs known to man and maybe even make a few new species of your own.

The Play Store Starts Showing 'Contains Ads' Designation For Apps And Games

When it comes to ad placements inside applications and games, the more you know the better it is before you make a plunge and decide to check something out. Maybe you're willing to pay $5 or $10 for a good app or game, but you're appalled by the idea of also having to endure ads on top of that, or maybe you're just the kind of person who prefers free and ad-free software. Knowing beforehand if the app or game you're about to download contains ads can go a long way in setting the right expectations, that's the point David argued many years ago, and Google in all its wisdom decided to follow his advice (or you know, common sense).
