Glu Mobile has already released a few mobile games featuring well-known celebrities, which have done fairly well for the company already. The next addition to Glu’s celebrity catalog is award-winning chef Gordon Ramsey who will be getting his own mobile game, thanks to a new partnership with Glu.
Released by Gku, Sniper X is a FPS game, with a sniper focus. Players will be tasked with taking down a terrorist organization named Scorpion, that deals in WMDs. Players will be assuming the role of one Sniper X, a member of an elite paramilitary group called SPEAR.
Glu Mobile has released another movie tie-in game and this time there’s no onslaught of killer robots in it. Instead it is themed around the latest Mission: Impossible movie and the game itself is called Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Players will need to infiltrate different enemy locations and complete objective that will eventually lead to you defeating your enemies.
Glu Mobile has done its fair share of games related to either movies or famous people, mainly the latter. Their newest one however is going to be based off of the upcoming Terminator movie which hits theaters this year in July. This new game is called Terminator Genisys: Revolution which is a similar title to the upcoming movie called Terminator Genisys.
Frontline Commando: WW2 is Glu’s latest installment in the Frontline Commando series, and is the sequel to Frontline Commando: D-Day. In this game, players participate in the battle for Europe. There are a few different theaters of war within the game, including Belgium, Italy, and Germany, in the hopes of pushing all the way to Berlin with the Allied forces.
Companies making video games based on/tied into blockbuster movie hits seems to be the rage these days and Glu, with partnership from Skydance Productions, is looking to terminate the competition with a new Terminator game. This will be a free-to-play action title with head to head combat and is being designed with the collaboration of the films creative team.
In a rather spectacular rebound, formerly ailing mobile game studio, Glu Mobile, has completed its acquisition of PlayFirst, the studio behind casual hits such as Diner Dash and Cooking Dash. Glu CEO, Niccolo de Masi, expressed that, “We are pleased to officially add PlayFirst to the Glu family and look forward to delivering new DASH products to a worldwide audience.” There is no word yet as to which title in the DASH line would see a new entry or if Glu plans to release an all new entry.
Glu Mobile have pushed out updates to three of their games on Android, all of which contains new holiday content for players of each game to check out. Frontline Commando D-Day, Deer Hunter 2014 and Stardom Hollywood all have updates available with unique holiday goodies for each title.
Glu Mobile is teaming up with Skillz to bring real-money gambling to their mobile games. The first game to receive this new feature will be Deer Hunter Reloaded since it is legal in 37 states to bet on games based around skill while actual online gambling on games revolving around chance is only legal right now in three states.
