Electronic Arts and Walt Disney emerged from the conference room yesterday to announce an exclusive development deal that will make EA and their subsidiaries exclusive developers for all things Star Wars for the next few years. Disney also stated that they will retain certain rights to develop new titles for the mobile and social platforms in the future, at their discretion. This is another historical exclusive score for EA as some of you may remember the EA Sports / NFL exclusive deal inked in 2004 and it remains today.
Day: 6 May 2013
Pascal Bestebroer has been making video games for a while now. You may know him as OrangePixel, the developer behind many of the cool retro style games you’ve probably played on your Android device. You know his games, now you get to know him as well.
If you’re a fan of comic books then you are probably familiar with Valiant’s rather cool crossover event called Harbinger Wars. Well the comic is now available as a retro style platformer called Harbinger Wars: Battle Vegas which follows the events that actually happen in the crossover series.
While Full Fat Games’ comic style James Bond-esque continuous running game Agent Dash has been out on Google Play for awhile, Kindle Fire owners have unfortunately been missing out on this game. Well that has been the case anyways until now as Agent Dash is now available on Amazon’s AppStore.
War Drum Studios’ Auralux game has had an updated pushed to it which brings with is a whole bunch of enhancements. One big part of the update is that the once Tegra exclusive game is exclusive no more. Now anyone running Honeycomb or higher can play Auralux, not just Tegra 3 owners.
Recently Popcap confirmed that aside from all that is going on with layoffs and whatnot that Plants vs Zombies 2 is still a thing and is still coming to Android. Today the company has released a preview trailer announcing an official release date, sort of, but the trailer doesn’t feature any gameplay.
505 Studios has released a trailer for Snoop Dogg’s Way of the Dogg rhythm-based combat game showing off some of the gameplay and how it works. While the trailer is for the XBLA version of the game, just imagine that instead of using a controller for all the actions you will be doing in time to the music, you’ll be using touch screen swipes instead.
Melesta Studios is responsible for the rather enjoyable Toy Defense tower defense game on Android right now and the company has just released a sequel onto iOS, appropriately named Toy Defense 2. Melesta Studios plans to bring this sequel over to Android in the near future as well.
With the original released date for Leviathan: Warships being April 30th, Paradox Interactive happens to be a few days late in bringing their naval action strategy game over to Android. Thankfully we’ve had that rather funny trailer they released recently to tide us over till now.
With the OUYA console just months away from consumers and it finally landing in the hands of developers, the “hands-on” impressions are starting to roll in. As it turns out, DroidGamers has yet to get their hands on a console to officially review. Also, as we get closer and closer to the OUYA release more of the promises or intentions of this platform are beginning to fall flat.
