Implosion: Never Lose Hope is a hack and slash style game that eqs recently released on Android by Rayark International Limited earlier this year. Their teaser trailer qqsnpretty impressive, so it was one that I had my eye in playing/reviewing for a while now. The game is a mixed bag for sure, so let's jump into the high and low points for this game. Beginning with the low...
Avoid It: A Story of Survival is a game that is aptly titled based on the structure of the game play. However, as a gamer, you should do anything, but avoid this game. It is bold, beautiful, and brutally difficult in some areas. It is well worth the price of admission. Exceptional vertical platformers/runners (rollers in this case) are few and far in between. Avoid It heads to the leader of the pack, due to excellent controls, smart and unique game play, and creativity in art that is fascinating.
Ketchapp puts games out with amazing consistency. They have a pool of game makers that they work with that routinely put out some pretty good games. Generally they are games that you can play quickly, have an easy learning curve, but at times, can be brutally difficult. One thing remains throughout their games though, they are generally fun to play.
Neverending Nightmares is a game that was released by Infitap Games. It's a game that is very simple to play, control wise, but is rich with content. The visuals, the soundtrack, the content, all flow together seamlessly, to make something that is compelling, and maybe even more than a game. This game was disturbing, compelling, and beyond both: extremely enjoyable. Let's see why.
Tinytouchtales and Mexer out of Germany, have created a wonderfully enjoyable dungeon crawling card game, that is uncomplicated and fun. If you are unfamiliar with card games, this is a perfect one to introduce you to the genre. The learning curve is easy, and the game has great depth when it comes to strategy and winning.
This is the type of review that I'm not happy to write. Super Heavy Sword is an extremely disappointing game, yet seems to have so much potential. For all I know, it very well could be living up to it, but the game has a bug that precludes me from getting far enough into the game, to really get a feel for what it could be; this is to say nothing of other critiques that I will offer as well. So here is my review, for what I could play.
Crimson Pine Games is an independent game developer located in Gliwice, Poland. They have developed a few games already available in the Google Play Store, such as Follow The Line 1 and 2, and a few Solitaire games. Their latest game, Geometry Race is an endless flight racing game worth checking out.
Philipp Stollenmayer has created a wonderful and brilliant platforming game called Sometimes You Die. The main protagonist in the game is a square, that navigates its way through varying puzzles and sparsely colored environments. It is not a long game, but the fun you have in the game makes it well-worth downloading. Here's the kicker, sometimes you will have to die to get to the next level.
Invictus Games has produced quite a few games for Android. Not too long ago, they released Daytona Rush, which was a pretty good endless racing game. Their latest game is 4 X 4 Jam HD. If there is one word to describe the graphics, it would be stunning. It is one of those games that your friends can see you playing, and their comment would probably be..."Those are graphics on a mobile device?" The game looks that good. The game play is definitely fun, but the game could use a few tune-ups under the hood.
No, you are not confused. I did say that a game published by Zynga is quite enjoyable. I was pleasantly surprised when I started playing Mountain Goat Mountain, the latest game from Zynga. In short, its adorable main character, simple game play and varying environments, make this game a great one to play for you, and the young ones in your family.
Double Dragon is a classic arcade and go!e console game from the late 1980s, and into the 1990s. It was a great game and franchise in its time, popularizing the venerated Beat 'Em Up genre. The success of franchise spawned several releases over different platforms. The original arcade game, and its first two arcade sequels was ported over to Android, and released by DotEmu, as a single collection. As such, this review will cover this trilogy.
