Usually I don’t go for the typing word games unless they look extremely good. Typing Zombies, developed by GoodTEAM Lab, actually caught my attention because of the name. Anything with zombies in the name always attracts my attention. With this game, you are presented with zombies who want to eat your brains and to destroy them you have to type the word above their heads.
Slot Maniac may not be the best example of a virtual world when you look at others such as SecondLife, nor as graphically beautiful, but the premise is still the same. Like your slot machines? Well now with Slot Maniac, developed by Fun Durian Entertainment, you can be a professional slit machine player. The games are limited to just slot machines though!
Barcode Beasties has been around for almost as long as the Android market has been. Developed by Richard Green, Barcode Beasties offers up a Pokemon battle style game where you find monsters of various levels with different abilities by scanning QR Codes on whatever products you have around and pitting them against one another.
Well it was bound to happen sooner or later with the onslaught of tablets coming to light with Android on them. Hard Kernel, who developed the ODROID, has now developed the ODROID-T. This is a tablet designed with high definition video and gaming in mind. The original ODROID was a PSP looking device running Android 1.6 (upgraded to 2.1) and seemingly sold out quickly.
Myself, along with probably every other developer and Android site, got an email today inviting us to join in on the Adobe Air pre-release. I’ve taken a bit of time to look through everything and I have to say it is pretty impressive, of course speaking in a strictly gaming aspect. When signed in to the pre-release program you have access to the beta Air 2.5 SDK with Android support.
From the developers of some great games such as Shoppers Paradise and Archipelago comes Dragon Fire. Second Gear Games has ported over their iPhone game Dragon Fire to Android. This game is a mix of traffic control style game and puzzle where in you have to direct the path of colored balls of fire with various switches to complete the puzzle/stage.
While looking through the market for new games to try out I came across one called Force of Attraction or FoA for short which is developed by Milleson. This is a neat little platform game where you control your guy, completing each stage by figuring out the correct way to get to the key you need before you can unlock the door and progress to the next stage.
So far I haven’t really seen a drinking game available for Android that has actually peaked my interest enough to download it and play. However a game called Bluff Dice caught my eye and after downloading it and playing, it’s actually fairly entertaining. Bluff Dice, developed by Net Mobile AG, is sort of a cross between poker style bluffing and Yatzee.
