Remember you childhood civilization games like Age of Mythology and Age of Empires, well prepare to have almost that exact same feeling again. Majesty: Fantasy Kingdom Sim almost brings back the long hours of building up your civilization at ludicrous speeds and then totally annihilating your enemy.
Day: 10 May 2011
At the end of January we mentioned that a game by Zaxis Games would be making it’s way to the Android platform very soon. Angry Vikings is a pretty big hit on iOS and now you can stop waiting for it to be available for Android. Why? Because you can now go to the Android Market and buy it, that’s why!
Game Closure is at Google I/O 2011 this year over at the developer’s sandbox showing off their new pure HTML5 game called Pop Star Defense. You might find it odd that a browser game developer is at Google I/O but having been developed using HTML5, Pop Star Defense is playable on any mobile device through it’s browser.
Gamevil just announced that they were setting up their booth over at Google I/O 2011 which will be featuring their other recent hit game for iOS called Kami Retro. This time, however, it won’t be seen on iOS but instead running on Android! This would mean it is on the way for us to play soon!
Yet another major announcement in the opening keynote session came out and one that everyone should be happy about. Google has partnered with 10 OEMs and carriers to guarantee timely Android updates to devices. This is in order to combat OS fragmentation which has been happening a lot. One device gets their update while others wait for months.
Google has dropped a ton of announcements already at Google I/O 2011 and another big one is that the next version of Android will be called Ice Cream Sandwich. The name we already knew but it was only hinted at it being available for phones and tablets. That hint is now a reality and will feature parts of Honeycomb and Gingerbread.
Google I/O 2011 has just started and already the announcements are all over the place. Everything from movie rentals on the Android Market, Google Music beta and Ice Cream Sandwich being announced just to name a few. One great feature coming in Honeycomb 3.1 though is the ability for USB host support.
You’ve probably heard or read about Gamevil’s newest hit game, Air Penguin, on one of the many gaming sites out there that focus on iOS titles. It is hit game that Gamevil just release and even they are surprised at how much of a hit it has become. However, it won’t just be on iOS anymore.
