Battle for Mars by Larva Labs just received an update with a great feature…multiplayer! Now you can play against other people in this great turn based strategy game and multiplayer has Shroud of War enabled which means you can’t see where your enemy is until they are right on you (or the other way around).
Vacuum by Door-6 has been in Beta for a short while now with only us press people having a whack at it but the wait has ended. Vacuum has landed on the Android market along with all the cash prize details which start April 1st so you have some time to practice up and get ready to try to win some cash (and it’s a good amount too!).
Better Game Promotion
This isn’t to say I know everything there is to know about when it comes to promoting your game but as a developer myself, I do have a few tips to game developers (and developers of apps as well) that will certainly help promote your game and probably make a difference in whether or not someone buys/downloads your game.
Shadow Zone by NewGround is a turn based strategy game set in 1986 when Chernobyl’s 4th block has an accidental nuclear explosion and the area is sealed off. This game boasts 40+ hours of game play so it’s definitely not a short game you’ll be done with in a couple of hours. I actually stumbled onto this game looking for something completely different but I’ve been pleasantly surprised.
I’ve seen this game on the Android market since it’s release and have wanted to try it out since the screen shots looked pretty interesting. T.T.D. by Infolife lets you control a spaceship within a set area while enemies spawn all around you making you move to dodge getting shot while shooting them in your little space.
Ready to improve your twitch gaming style to it’s fullest? Well this game doesn’t really help with that. However, if you want a pretty decent gallery shooting style game using characters from CS then you’ll probably enjoy CounterStrike Training by Calford. It’s a pretty simple but enjoyable tap game where you tap the screen to shoot people.
Slime by InfoLife is a typical block breaking game with a slight twist which is you are able to rotate the screen and have the blocks fall into different positions to help you out and make bigger combos. The free version of this game lasts for 30 days so it’ll give you plenty of time to try it out before deciding whether or not to buy the paid version.
Flight Director meets rush hour traffic in this new game called Traffic Control by Rosewood Aquarium Studios. In Traffic Control you tap cars as they head into an intersection to accelerate them and avoid accidents with other cars.
SCVNGR is a geo-gaming platform that enables anyone to quickly and easily build location-based mobile games, tours, and interactive experiences that can be enjoyed from any mobile device or at least that’s what the website says. Either way it sounds and looks like a really cool concept.
It seems today is filled with all sorts of retro goodness for some reason. Kamyran’s Eye by PHK is a very retro looking “rogue-like” RPG (think even before the original Final Fantasy). One cool feature is that every time you play the game, the world changes a little bit so it’s never quite the same each time.
