Today during GDC 2017 Google went over a couple of new features that will be beneficial for both developers and consumers when using Google Play. The most obvious change, which will be visible in each Google Play listing, is a strikethrough price when an application or game goes on sale. This is in order to make it more obvious to consumers when a game or app is on sale, instead of having to rely on a developer posting it in the game’s description. There will also be a little note that sale when the sale will be ending.

There is a new application that has just been released onto Android and iOS that will be focusing solely on mobile gaming videos, live streams, and news called Core. Staffed by some fairly heavy hitters from the video games industry, including former Machinima VP of content strategy Matthew Cohen as CEO, the app’s goal is to “help solve the discovery and community problem in today’s fragmented mobile games market”.
Now here’s something you don’t see everyday. Google has released a new game onto its Play Store (yes, really). Although one could argue that Toontastic 3D is equal parts creativity app and mobile game, its here nonetheless, and you can get it absolutely free of charge.
Since its release Pokemon Go wasn’t just about going out trying to catch all the little creatures of our childhood. It asked us to make, as always, our first important choice: our team! After that the war began, rivalries took over the net, and in the streets with the aim of making all the gyms in our city belonging to our team. However, this has never been an easy task. First of all, because of the great number of players trying to do the same under a different color, but also because the little field of view available in the app didn’t allow us to see much further from our position.
A couple of months ago Twitch bought Curse, which started off as a communication suite for gamers to use while in game but has since expanded greatly in what that platform provides. Since then the team at Twitch has been working on integrating Curse’s suite of communication tools into its platform, and now it looks like video calling has finally arrived for Twitch. To start, it is now available for desktop users, but mobile support is in the works.
AirJamz Music by Zivix LLC isn’t necessarily a game, but it isn’t just an application either, but a bit of both depending on how you look at it. What this neat little application does is allow for users to make music using the app and any physical movements you happen to do while it is running. This is, of course, assuming you have the official AirJamz toy that goes along with this application.
Up until now Twitch has been strictly a streaming service and platform, not allowing pre-recorded content of any kind to be uploaded to a user’s channel. You could, however, have records of previous live streams and VODs available for your fans to check out if they missed a stream or anything like that. Now Twitch has set its sights on YouTube but allowing pre-recorded content to be uploaded to a streamer’s channel.
As many of you are probably aware, Amazon bought Twitch not too long ago for a cool $970 million and has since kept their hands on the game streaming company. One feature many people have been wanting has apparently been the ability for their Amazon Prime membership to count towards their Twitch Turbo membership. Well, as of today, that has become a reality in a few regions.
It’s the end of another week which also means it is time for another Android game sale round-up! This week’s like only has a few new entries to it, so the majority of this week’s list happens to be repeats. That’s not totally a bad thing, since last week’s list was rather big, so it’ll give people another chance to grab some more games that were on sale last week that have been carried over to this one.
