The dust has just about settled from Flappy Bird’s viral success, a success so great it prompted its creator Dong Nguyen to pull it from Google’s Playstore and Apple’s App sore, and he’s released another one.

If you are not familiar with the series (then you obviously have never met my brother..) it is a hack and slash style RPG based on the novels of Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The mobile adaption takes the role playing game- something difficult to perfect on a mobile device, and turns it into a MOBA- a more sympathetic genre for tablets and phones.
COFA Gamers are developing a MOBA called Awakening of Heroes and in such a competitive genre they are taking measures to ensure they stand out from the crowd.
So we recently received an interesting update from the guys at Spacetime Studios regarding their MMO strategy game Battle Command. This update, which will soon be pushed out worldwide onto Google Play, features a modification to the usual RTS mechanics found in these types of games. More specifically, this deals with resource gathering.
Batman Arkham Origins has just been released for Android and It’s free. Batman is one of the more interesting DC heroes (not that that is much of an accolade), and I love NetherRealm’s fighting games; so I immediately downloaded it. How does it play?
Remember the Samsung VR headset that we wrote about a week ago? Gizmodo is now reporting that the Korean tech giant has teamed up with Oculus VR in the production of their virtual reality, android powered headset.
Trials Fusion is one my favorite games on the PS4; naturally I was delighted when a mobile version launched on android a few days ago. The game itself is the classic gravity/rag-doll physics game that many people will have played in different iterations. You use the on screen controls to accelerate or break, lean forward or backwards. That’s it. Nothing fancy going on here, and it works well. The buttons look aesthetically pleasing too, something a lot of games of the genre get wrong.
Yep. Epic Games, the folks behind the Unreal Engine, and who brought you the epic graphical demo Epic Citadel have released a flappy birds clone dubbed Tappy Chicken. It runs off their Unreal Engine to ‘[showcase] the ease of use and flexibility of Unreal Engine 4.’
Facebook buys Oculus Rift for $2 billion, Google buys Twitch.TV for $1 billion. This is certainly the time to be a gaming start up. Whilst many sites have spoken of this as a rumor Variety.com has reported that the deal has already been made. Either way, there’s no smoke without fire, especially if the reports of Twitch turning down Microsoft in favor of Google are true.
