Back during CES 2012 we got some hands-on time with Sega’s upcoming sports title called Virtua Tennis Challenge which will be coming to Android. During GDC 2012 and our visit with Sega, we managed to get an update so to when we can expect this game to arrive on Google Play.
Day: 9 March 2012
We met up with ngmoco at GDC 2012 where we talked about the upcoming improvements heading to DragonCraft and Skyfall, which we will be covering in a separate article. The other topic of conversation was a new game that will be making its way to Android soon called Dreamtopia.
Developers of the hit games Battleheart and Zombieville USA, Mika Mobile, has announced today that they will no longer be spending time developing their games for Android. Even in light of the recent change to the Android Market where the file size limit for secondary downloads was increased to 4GB, they have to close up shop regarding Android.
Spacetime Studios were on hand at GDC 2012 showing off their upcoming MMORPG for Android called Dark Legends. Let it be known right now this is not the Twilight type of vampire in this game with the whole sparkly drama filled emotional wreck the movies are. Instead, this game contains more of the True Blood type of vampire.
Continuing on with the sale to celebrate the re-branding of the Android Market to Google Play, a few new games have been added to the list of titles on sale for $0.49 including Gameloft’s Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation and Gamevil’s Colosseum.
We had a chance to swing by and meet up with Sega at GDC 2012 to check out what they had on display and for us to play with. One of the big questions we had was whether or not the mobile version of the Total War PC series was actually coming to Android. Well, we now know it is.
One game we have been talking about recently on and off due to rumors it was coming to Android is Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition from Sega. Back during the Sega Valentine’s Day sale, this game was mentioned as being discounted for Android even though it wasn’t available, at least not for North America and Europe.
Kemco has come out to release a new RPG title onto Android today called Aeon Avenger. Having been on the Android Market (now known as Google Play) for a very short period of time, only a few hours, it already has gotten quite the positive response from RPG fans out there.
Rovio promised an announcement for March 8th that would reveal more about their upcoming new addition to the Angry Birds franchise called Angry Birds Space. They kept that promise, releasing a full press release with additional details for Angry Birds Space along with yet another video and even some screenshots.
One of the first games I purchased for Android was Highborn. The graphics, story line, and it being a turn-based strategy game are what drew me to the game. It was one of the best purchases I have made for my Android device. If you enjoy turn-based strategy games with a sense of humor, you need to pick up one or all three chapters of Highborn.
