Last week Humble Bundle released a new mobile bundle themed around the title Eye Candy. What this means is that all the games have a rather unique art style to them, instead of the usual definition of eye candy which usually refers to high-end 3D visuals. Originally this bundle started with six games, but today there are two more games added to it.
Nexon Korea has announced that the mobile version of their popular MMORPG for PC called Maple Story will finally be getting released. If you have been following the site for awhile, you're probably thinking to yourself "but isn't a mobile version of Maple Story already available?". Well it was, sort of, but that game (Maple Story Live as it was called) is no longer available on Google Play.
PolyBlast is an arcade shooter that's coming soon to Android. The gameplay is akin to the classics, such as Galaga, where players fire projectiles upward from the bottom of the screen. The goal of the game is to eliminate the various geometric patterns that are creeping downward from the top of the screen.
When I came across Subterfuge, I didn't quite know what to expect. On many levels, I still don't. The game comes from a team of game creators that made the games World of Goo, Casey's Contraptions and Flower Garden. Ron Carmel and Noel Llopis have created what appears to be a very cerebral multiplayer-only game. What really has me anticipating this game is the extremely well produced trailer that sets up the game play. The game looks challenging, totally engrossing, has a clean and crisp UI and will be coming to Android/iOS next week.
A lot of indie game developers have started to release their games on multiple platforms all at once, or shortly after one another. Part of the reason for this is because all of the markets for each platform, be it Android, iOS, PC, Browser-based, and even console, are much more accessible to smaller developers than they once used to be.
Back in June of this year we reported on a new interactive gamebook series that would be heading our way soon from Liber Primus Games, developers of the Narborion Saga series. This new gamebook series, however, is written by Richard Morgan whose previous includes writing Crysis 2 and Syndicate.
Rovio has pushed out a duo of Halloween-themed updates to two of their games, Angry Birds Pop! and Angry Birds 2. Like any good Halloween type of update, both of these are filled with zombies. Of course these are zombie pigs, all of which you will have to deal with in all the new Halloween-themed levels that have been added to each game.
The Grand Tournament expansion is still fresh for Hearthstone players, having been out barely a month. This, however, isn't stopping Blizzard on working on more new content for their popular TCG. Rumors are already starting to circulate that a new Hearthstone adventure will be unveiled at this year's Blizzcon.
A new indie game will be heading to Android soon that will put players into the role of a fugitive snowman. The game is called Frosty the Assassin, and the goal is to stay alive for as long as you possibly can. While Frosty the Snowman takes on a bit more of a sinister role in this game, he also looks rather creepy as well.
After recalling a list of their games earlier this week, EA is now listing some of their current games at the low price of a dime. They've marked down the cost on about a dozen of them, with most of them falling under the Chillingo name. There are some noteworthy games on this list as well, including Monopoly, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, and the formerly-to-be-removed Dead Space.
