Earlier today we announced that Vainglory had been updated a few days early with the extra special version 1.6 update. This is the update that finally brings official Android support to the game. So now all of you who have been waiting for this game to leave its beta for Android can now play. We’ve been playing for awhile in the beta and it is quite the fun game, although you can expect our full review now that it is officially out to come shortly.
Meltdown is a top down shooter from Bullypix. The gameplay is simplistic, the story is nearly non-existent, and the levels are repetitive. With all that being said, the game was a total blast, and I looked forward to playing any time I wasn’t. It’s not without flaws, just having spelled out a few of them. Yet, none of those really mattered to me, nor dissuaded me from enjoying the game.
Coming hot off the heels of the recent release of the MARS pinball table, Zen Studios has announced that the next Marvel-themed pinball table for their Zen Pinball platform will be Ant-Man. For those of you not familiar with who Ant-Man is, he is a somewhat underrated superhero in the Marvel universe who can shrink down to the size of an ant. However recently Ant-Man has had a bit of a makeover by Marvel and now he looks a lot better than he used to.
Don’t Starve is a great game to play on PC, regardless as to whether you play it on your own or team up with your friends. Not too long ago Klei stated that a mobile version of Don’t Starve could work, but nothing much came after that in the way of details or information as to whether a mobile version would be coming. Now it seems that a mobile version is clearly in the works as Klei has teased Don’t Starve Pocket Edition on Instagram.
Spacetime Studios has announced that the newest content expansion for their MMORPG on mobile called Arcane Legends has now gone live. This content expansion will begin with everyone in the game having the option to participate in an event which will essentially ‘open’ the expansion for everyone.
Back in 2013 Nekki released their rather cool running game Vector which takes place in an Orwellian world, with players trying to escape Big Brother. It’s not too dissimilar to Canabalt, for those of you who have played it. Well if you enjoyed Vector then you should be happy to know a sequel is on the way, appropriately named Vector 2.
While a lot of Shield Android TV owners are waiting for the release of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel which should be happening soon, Nvidia has announced four new games for their Shield brand of devices, all of which are now available. The new games are Half-Life 2 Episode 2, Q.U.B.E. Director’s Cut, Never Alone, and Funk of Titans.
We usually don’t cover events like the Anime Expo or the San Diego Comic Con unless there happens to be something related to mobile gaming showing up at those events for some reason. Well GungHo Entertainment is actually one of a few game development companies going to this year’s Anime Expo and today the company revealed their line-up of games they will be showing off there. Interestingly enough, one of those games is a new Puzzle & Dragons title coming to mobile soon.
Crescent Moon Games, the studio behind the lauded Ravensword series of RPGs, has recently declared that the premium revenue model has met its demise. In a public response to a one star review of their first person shooter, Neon Shadow, a staff member Josh responded to a complaint about the title being switched from a paid app to free-to-play game.
