The love child of Pachinko, Breakout, and Bomberman has arrived: Starific – Endless Reactor

Released by Beveled Edge, Starific is a difficult-to-describe arcade shooter, of sorts. According to the devs, it’s as if “Pachinko, Breakout, and Bomberman had a 3-way love child”. Players will look to trigger chain reactions, in an effort to complete levels. Gameplay is straightforward though, in that a level begins with a “star” that is released onto the octagonal board and players control a portion of its border.

DroidGamers Double Daily Deal: OSTraining Development Courses Lifetime Subscription and more

It is time for another DroidGamers Daily Deal but unlike our usual day-to-day deal posting, today is a double deal day. This is when there are two deals we will end up posting about, but instead of doing two separate posts, we just combine it into one, because why not. Today’s two deals are actually pretty stellar, at least the lifetime subscription to OSTraining Development Courses is definitely a good one.

DroidGamers Daily Deal: Learn coding by making games with Unity3D for 82% off

Back in the first half of October, one of the Daily Deals we had was a game development course bundle which was on sale. A lot of people were interested in that bundle, especially since it offered a lot of focus on using Unity3D which is great for cross-platform game development and is one of the more popular game engines to use when making games. Well that deal is back for those of you who missed it last time.
