Day: 12 March 2015
While one of the stories we had to wait with talking about till today was Mortal Kombat X, the other title we had to sit on until now was our hands-on time with Spacetime Studios upcoming MOBA Call of Champions. We have already gone into great detail about this game when we had our pre-GDC 2015 interview with Spacetime Studios but we didn’t get to do any sort of hands-on with the game itself until GDC 2015 actually started.
Rovio is keeping the Angry Birds train rolling forward with a new release today called Angry Birds Stella POP!. Based off of the morally conscience Angry Birds Stella game, this is a match-3 puzzle spin-off that deals with saving exotic critters. Of course taking out the evil pigs is still a part of the game as well. Mind you it is a bit ironic to save exotic creatures while getting rid of pigs which is also a creature of the world last time I checked.
Pinball masters Zen Studios are teaming up with another company called PlayNext to bring Deadpool to X-Men: Battle of the Atom. When we first read the press release we though “oh cool, a new Deadpool table in Zen Pinball” but this actually has nothing really to do with Zen Pinball, or pinball at all for that matter.
A couple of weeks ago Square Enix announced an entirely new mobile Final Fantasy game that will be heading our way soon called Final Fantasy: Record Keeper. Since that announcement pre-registration has been available for those of you who know you are going to be getting this game when it launches. As per usual, when you pre-register for a game, you end up getting an in-game bonus/reward or two when the game actually launches.
If you have been following our extended coverage of GDC 2015 then you probably read our hands-on preview of an interesting game called Sick Bricks by Spin Masters. Combining physical toys with a slew of different games, all located within one title, Sick Bricks is something fans of other titles like Skylanders will want to check out.
One of the games we were very eager to try out during GDC 2015 was NetherRealms’ Mortal Kombat X for Android devices. When we got to where the game was being shown, it was in a nice dark conference room behind closed doors with both the console version as well as the mobile version being available to play. Without wasting any time we went over to the table where all the tablets were, sat down, and began playing Mortal Kombat X while talking to one of the developers working on the project.
One Man Left is the developer of the game called Outwittes, which was one of the App Stores Best Games of 2012, with over a million downloads. The quick and dirty on the game is that it’s turn based multiplayer in the form of tactical squad combat that’s played on a hex board, with the goal being that the player destroys the base of his or her opponent, without losing his/her own base in the process. Matches can be one on one, or two on two. There are four different factions to choose from, each with a unique unit.
Originally debuting during a Humble Bundle recently, Glorkian Warrior: The Trials of Glork will finally be hitting Google Play in a more permanent official capacity. Thankful, this new version for Google Play comes with copious amounts of cake as well as your very own Flarf gun as well to shoot your enemies with.
The next installment into the Dungeon Hunter franchise by Gameloft finally has a release date and it is a lot closer than you may be thinking. Dungeon Hunter 5 will be arriving onto Android this month and, in fact, it will be arriving in less then two weeks.
