While Square Enix may not be bringing the actual games from the console/PC series to mobile devices for the foreseeable future, that isn't stopping the company from bringing spin-off games to mobile. In the past 24 hours two new Final Fantasy games have been announced - Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius and Final Fantasy Legends: Crystal Of Time And Space.
One of the more anticipated franchises coming to mobile is TellTale Games' point-and-click adventure title Game Of Thrones. Apparently some of the first screenshots for this game, which has been heavily kept under wraps, have leaked onto the internet. Most of these screenshots are shots of character's faces and some of the backgrounds.
Last week we reported on a new version update that would be arriving for Minecraft: Pocket Edition in the near future. Well that future has become the present as Mojang has pushed out the version 0.10.0 update onto Android this morning. In a nutshell this update improves the graphics, increases the game's performance, and killed off a whole lot of bugs which makes for a much more polished and enjoyable experience when playing.
We have been recently covering the development and upcoming release for Gamevil's upcoming title Darkness Reborn which is basically this sequel for Dark Avenger. If you've not had a chance to play in the closed beta and are eagerly awaiting the release of this game, the good news is that you won't have to wait much longer.
The first thought I had when I looked at the screenshots of Planet NamNam from the Game Cooks was, "This looks like it will be a lot of fun!" The art work is supremely original, the story line is funny, if not humorously creative, and the genre, arcade first person shooter, is one that could use a breath of fresh air. Did the Game Cooks put the right amount of that special sauce into their game?
One Man Left Studios is comprised of two old friends that went to elementary school together. Alex Okafor is the developer, and Adam Stewart, provides the artwork and animation. They work remotely from Georgia and Alabama. That setup is quite interesting, but it works, because One Man Left has created some fantastic and fun games that require good gaming skills. Their latest entry, Tilt to Live: Gauntlet's Revenge, will be making its way to the Play Store soon.
Just a few months ago, Goon Studios, a game developer based in Pasadena, California, released the artistically adorable and enjoyable platformer/runner, Boogey Boy. If you haven't played it yet, you should. It is fun, unique and definitely worth your time. We've been in touch with the Goons, since they released Boogey Boy. Recently, they were kind enough, to share an exclusive piece of art for their next project, Monster vs. Sheep with, Droid Gamers.
Ketchapp seems to be delivering simple and fun games, one right after the other. In the past month or so, they have pushed The Tower, Amazing Thief and Make Them Fight into the Play Store. Thus far, all of the games have a few things in common. They have clean and simple graphics, they are easy to pick up and put down for quick game play, and each one is entertaining in its own right. Most recently, Ketchapp, in collaboration with WF Games, brought Stick Hero to the Play Store. Anybody in your family can pick up and play this game easily. All it requires is a good judge of distance.
Nitrome has made a follow-up to their popular title 8-Bit Doves. In the same glorious, and almost monochromatic fashion, they have released Endless Doves into the Play Store. Yes, let all the Flappy Bird comparisons begin. In this case, I don't think they are really warranted. The quality of this extraordinarily difficult game is unmatched in its control, atmosphere and personality. It is a straightforward game, that is as challenging as Wave, Wave to play, by Noodlecake Games. However, accepting failure with this title, is much easier, because of the delightful touches the designers have placed in the game. Endless Doves should be downloaded for the attention to detail alone. The graphics are a throwback to the early days of Nintendo Gameboys.
So we talk about some serious issues on this site sometimes as well as talking about new games being released or games heading our way soon. Interviews, game reviews and so on, a lot of generally serious things. With that said, we wanted to do something a little different and start a more enjoyable and entertaining series here on DroidGamers every Friday called Fun Fridays.
