Alright before everyone goes WTF!? because the title says iPhone and not Android let me explain. I’m only referencing the iPhone because there is a video showing game play on the iPhone with the Unreal Engine and using that to show what we can expect for Android devices, it’ll be similar quality, if not better by the time the engine comes out for Android.
In the tradition of office basketball where we make a basketball out of crumpled up paper and our baskets being garbage cans comes Toss It by Boolba Labs. Toss it eliminates two problems that generally happens when office basketball is being played: 1) The obscene waste of paper 2) The pointless attempts at telling your boss that you weren’t playing office basketball when they walk over and see 50 some odd balls of crumpled paper all over the floor.
The ODroid by Hardkernel, for those of you who forgot about this little device, is a handheld portable game console sporting the Android OS and looks like a PSP but with more buttons. You can also hook it up to your tv with 720p video output via HDMI should you want to show off your mad Farm Frenzy skills while at your buddy’s house.
Well here are some more videos from GDC 2010 from various sources such as Gamepro, Gamespot, 1up etc etc. Started another article because the previous one was long enough and had enough videos in it. Enjoy.
Warpath by Synthetic Reality is a multiplayer (either human or bots) game that takes place in the future. You can play it as a strategy battle game or a simulation game that doesn’t end. You can colonize uninhabited planets, buy weapons and ships, shop, mine planet, fight and more. This game is still currently in development even though it’s on the market but is actually pretty solid right now with some good graphics and interactive gameplay.
There’s a bunch of new features now added to this site that I’ve been hard at work on. All of them revolve around giving this site a more community feel to it as well as social network integration (although that’s still in the works on certain levels). There’s a whole bunch to list and a short description for each feature.
As the name suggests this is another destruction/physics type game that was just released by Camel Games, a popular developer of physics games such as Shoot U!. Blow Up is similar to iDemolished with the fact that it’s a building destruction game that uses explosives to destroy buildings and uses gravity/physics for sway and building parts falling down…you can also blow up a Panda.
Well here is another non-android related post but I figured everyone would be interested in the GDC awards and who won what. If you haven’t read this list already of winners you’ll probably be surprised by a few of them and not at all surprised by other winners. Either way congrats to all of them.
Well the Epic Press Conference just ended and it wasn’t really a long one either. A brief mention about the iPhone getting the Unreal Engine at some point soon was one announcement they made. Also they showed a game called APB (All Points Bulletin). However, any news about Android…didn’t happen.
