In true Throwback Thursday fashion, Tiny Tower has been released on Android. What is this, 2011? No, it's still 2016, but this is a new version of Tiny Tower with a new listing in the Play Store. Do you dare dive back into this addictive tower builder?
With a name like "Disco Zoo," you can probably tell that Tiny Tower developer NimbleBit isn't taking its latest game entirely seriously. And indeed, this really isn't a Zoo Tycoon-style game, and it isn't trying to be. In Disco Zoo, you "rescue" animals under questionable circumstances, then display them in marginally unsafe conditions to farm money out of gawking patrons. And then you throw a disco party.
Disco Zoo is a mix of Kairosoft-style pixelated property management (slightly modified to fit the free-to-play model), and, strangely, minesweeper. Your sojourns to the wild via hot air balloon are played out on a grid with a limited number of moves available.
The latest unabashed cash -in on the Star Wars franchise is now available throughout the system. Tiny Death Star, a collaboration between LucasArts and NimbleBit, is available to multiple countries after an Australia-only launch. The pixelated game is a Star Wars-flavored version of NimbleBit's extremely popular Tiny Tower.
We've checked the Play Store in the US, Canada, UK, and South Africa, and Tiny Death Star is available in all of them, so we're fairly confident that this is a worldwide release. The game is a free download, though it uses the usual currency system to drive in-app purchases.
If you love Star Wars, pixelated graphics, and frantic management gaming, then today is your day. Well, it is if you live in Australia (where technically tomorrow is your day). Disney, LucasArts, and NimbleBit have teamed up to deliver Tiny Death Star to the Play Store, but at the moment it looks like it's only available down under. The game is a free download for Aussies.
Tiny Death Star is pretty much exactly what it looks like: a Star Wars-themed version of the incredibly popular Tiny Tower apartment management game. You build various rooms to attract characters, who will either live or work in them.
