The brilliant Pro Evolution Soccer is back again, this time with the 2012 edition blazing onto android and packing some pretty good visuals and a great selection of game modes. This just might be the most full featured soccer game to hit android to date... now let's get stuck right in!
What would you do if you where an alien that's just made it to planet earth... that's right, goes around abducting every living thing in sight. Packed full of hostile humans, you have to survive long enough to carry out all the missions set for you by your home planet!
I decided to do something a bit different for this review. Instead of reviewing each game separately, I am going to do a side by side comparison of these games to see which one is the "better" kingdom. Today I am looking at We Rule by ngmoco and Miracle City Online by DroidHen. Let the battle begin!
Eve of the Genesis, while hardly a new title, is proving itself to be one of the more popular examples of a 16-bit (That's Super Nintendo/Genesis era for you young'ns) RPG throwback. Eve of the Genesis begins as most RPG's of the era, with your main character privy to the first cracks of a potentially world shattering event.
Vogelstein 2D is a hidden little gem of a game, like a well guarded secret. It also handily serves as an example of what is great about the Android Marketplace. Sure, your Shadowguns and your Modern Combats get all the "attention", but you have the true hobbyists who tinker and release games. Many times, these games are a labor of love, and I am proud to report that Vogelstein 2D is such a game.
Vector Unit’s second outing on the Android platform returns to the familiar water racing genre similar to their first hit, Riptide GP that first made splashes on Tegra 2 devices. Leaving behind water tracks in favor of a southern swamps and jet skis for fan boat, Shine Runner’s unique humor and arcade game play is great addition to the racing scene. Is it enough for you to put your swimming trunks on and anchor $1.99?
Looking for another excuse to kill some zombies? Yeah, I thought so. I mean, c’mon, who isn’t? Well, Wildbit Studios has hooked you up with a free release of Paper Zombies—a first person shooter, hack and slash type action and adventure game.
If your idea of flinging a kitty around sounds like fun, then read on. Okay, not a real kitty, but a cool, cartoon-y graphically rendered kitty that you fling around while trying to avoid him from getting frozen, burned, and bashed into walls.
D20 Studios developed this gem of a game and it’s pretty under-the-radar. I don’t think I would have even known about this game if DroidGamers hadn’t mentioned it before I started homing my blogging craft (which is very much a work in progress). So I decided to take the game for a spin, and I’m absolutely glad I did.
Now I’d love to give the readers a full review. However, I seem to share the same fate that some of you that will download this game will be forced to live through — those dang force closes! The game is almost fun enough that the frustration of the force closes are worth it because I tended to be able to get a bit further each time before the game froze up.
The granddaddy of city management finally lands on Android, and while he's slower and makes less sense; there is still that twinkle in his eye. The Sim City series has had a long history, from its humble beginnings in the dark ages of 1989 to the current day, no one game has quite nailed the balance of fun and frustration of running a city the way that Sim City does. Sim City and its sequels have been ported to almost every system in existence over the years, some good and some terrible.
