A massive retro-style 16-bit RPG called Pier Solar HD is up on Kickstarter looking for funding to finish the game. Originally designed for the Sega Mega Drive and Genesis as Pier Solar, this new HD version is slated for release on the Xbox 360, PC, Mac, Linux and the Dreamcast. Yes, that is correct, the Dreamcast. So why are we reporting on this? Because the Kickstarter project, which is fully funded, is less than $25,000 away from reaching its stretch goal which would bring Pier Solar HD to Android and OUYA with 5 days left to go.
Kemco happens to be one of the main publishers of retro-style RPGs and JRPGs on Android and today they have announced that a sequel to their Alphadia RPG is on the way, slated for release on December 3rd, 2012 onto Google Play. Officially called Alphadia II, this sequel takes place two centuries after the original game happens and, as you might be guessing, a new evil has arisen.
Based off of their Daily Deals website, Electronic Arts has developed and released a dedicated widget that will deliver up-to-the-minute listings of deals straight to the home screen on your Android device. When you launch the widget, you will have a scrolling list of deals that, when you click on the one you’re interested in, will take you right to the appropriate page so you can snap up a copy of that game quickly before the deal ends.
It looks like the release of Final Fantasy games on Android won’t be slowing down anytime soon. Last week we reported on GREE and Square Enix teaming up to bring a Final Fantasy game to Android and now it appears that DeNA and Square Enix are also teaming up to bring a Final Fantasy title to Android called Final Fantasy Airborne Brigade.
Rockstar Games has released a new trailer for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City in part to celebrate the upcoming 10th anniversary of the game as well as the upcoming mobile release. The video is filled with plenty of nostalgic footage to enjoy including a rather large man dry humping the air in a restaurant in front of two women. Of course that’s just normal in this game.
Continuing with this morning’s onslaught of Android gaming news, Chillingo has released a new game onto Google Play called Jelly Jumpers. This particular title is a continuous jumping game where you select one of three characters, who happen to be made of jelly, and then proceed to jump as high as you can until you mess up and ultimately fall to your jelly splattering death.
Earlier this week, Google quietly introduced a pretty big change in the way we leave reviews on the Play Store. No longer are we able to anonymously post reviews – we must now do so using our Google+ profiles, with our full name and photo on display for the whole world to see (this has not been rolled to all Android devices though just yet, but the web version already requires your Google+ profile).
Another big game release has arrived this morning, this time coming from the fine folks over at Gamevil. Originally slated for release on Google Play a couple of weeks ago, for whatever reason the release of Zenonia 5: Wheel of Destiny was delayed. Luckily the delay wasn’t that long because Zenonia 5 has now landed on Google Play, giving us yet another addition to the Action-RPG series from Gamevil.
Yesterday we reported on Angry Birds Star Wars and the fact it was going to be getting a new content update today. Well that update has now gone live for Android players who will now be treated to a healthy dose of AT-AT Walkers and will also be able to use the pink bird, otherwise known as Princess Leia.
