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.
Nitrome has a string of hits on Android. It seems with every release, they are trying something a little bit different, but strangely enough, totally within their ever unfolding wheel house. Their latest game Vault, is an endless runner, and it is downright fun to play. It isn't easy, but when you string together several vaults, one right after the other, you feel pretty good about it. In short, it is worth a download to play.
After so many years, the game play of Frogger has returned in a big way on mobile devices. With the popularity of Crossy Road, and as an homage to Frogger, Tech Tree Games has created a wonderful mesh of the two, with their game Bring Me Home. The game is fun, wildly colorful and wonderful art.
Inner world is a point and click adventure game, released by Headup Games. I am a fan of this genre, going back a couple of decades, so I was looking forward to review this once I came across it. Fortunately, the game (largely) didn't disappoint, with only a few technical flaws in an otherwise solid game.
Ketchapp has a knack for working with extremely talented game designers. Their latest collaboration with Bento Studios out of Lyon, France, is another successful pairing in my opinion. After firing up the game Escape, you are immediately thrust into an achingly beautiful world. Unfortunately, you have to pilot your rocket through perilous environments. In the midst of such beauty, will be death and destruction... over and over again.
Lifeline by 3 Minute Games, is an intriguing and interactive story. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but being familiar with the work of Dave Justus, writer of Fables:The Wolf Among Us, was enough for me to give it a chance. I'm glad I did. It is the perfect reason to have notifications on your phone.
Seville, Spain is the spot on the globe where the headquarters of Genera Games calls home. They have additional offices/studios around the world in Boston, Romania and Los Angeles. They recently released an exciting action-filled endless runner called Ramboat. It is a blast to play, and has plenty of missions to conquer. Think of Halfbrick Studios' Jetpack Joyride, and you will have an idea of just how fun this game is to play.
Meltdown is a top down shooter from Bullypix. The gameplay is simplistic, the story is nearly non-existent, and the levels are repetitive. With all that being said, the game was a total blast, and I looked forward to playing any time I wasn't. It's not without flaws, just having spelled out a few of them. Yet, none of those really mattered to me, nor dissuaded me from enjoying the game.
