In our previous post below about a game called SheepRun, we mentioned that it has MoboSquare integrated into it. Not having heard of MoboSquare, we decided to look into it. What we found was actually pretty interesting. Having never been a fan of check-in services like Foursquare personally, MoboSquare is basically Foursquare… for apps and games.

Mix physics gameplay, Lemmings style gaming, and an Angry Birds-like user interface elements and what do you get? SheepRun! Developed by the curiously named FingerFantasy, SheepRun looks like it would have been developed by Rovio due to the user interface; however, similarities end there in this unique game.
Sifting through the Android Market as I usually do in the mornings, looking for new games to try out, I noticed one called Androminion. At first I wasn’t going to take a look at it but for whatever reason I decided otherwise. Developed by Ankur Mehta, Androminion is the Android version of the award winning strategy card game, Dominion.
A little over three years ago Android came to public light and I went and got myself a G1. Only a couple of weeks after that I found a game called Dungeon Wonders which is a JRPG game, one of the first RPG games for Android. After a few updates with bug fixes and more content the updates grew less until it seemed it was only bug fixes here and there.
This may cause an upswing in mediocre games being brought to the Android Market, it may not. It could bring a lot of cool retro-ish type games instead but for right now there is no way to tell. One thing is for sure though, it will be interesting to see what comes out of YoYo Games’ drag-and-drop game development program called Game Maker which will soon support Android.
