It’s Friday and therefor time for another Android game sale round-up. This week there’s a good amount of new faces on the list while there also happens to be plenty of repeats as well. There are some pretty solid games available on sale including Lara Croft GO which isn’t even labeled as on sale but did see a price drop.
Om Nom, the little green monster that was made famous in the Cut the Ripe series, is back for more candy chomping in the next iteration of the Cut the Rope franchise, called Cut the Rope: Magic. For the uninitiated, this franchise is a physics based puzzler where players face increasingly difficult levels, where they attempt to feed a very hungry Om Nom a piece of candy that is suspended by one or more ropes.
Angry Employees, it’s not a new game from Rovio, although it is something Rovio has created. Today the company has announced that they are downsizing their workforce, and will be letting go roughly a third of their staff who will soon be needing to find new jobs. In total that is 213 people who will be leaving Rovio.
Rovio has pushed out a duo of Halloween-themed updates to two of their games, Angry Birds Pop! and Angry Birds 2. Like any good Halloween type of update, both of these are filled with zombies. Of course these are zombie pigs, all of which you will have to deal with in all the new Halloween-themed levels that have been added to each game.
Today Disney has confirmed a huge list of mobile games the company is retiring. Before everyone gets worried though, this doesn’t necessarily mean that they are going to be pulled for Google Play (or other markets for that matter) and won’t be downloadable. What this does mean is that development won’t be continuing for these particular titles. This means no future updates or support for the retired games.
Fans of Frozen Gun Games’ original Freeze! game now have a sequel to dig into and spend lots of time trying to get through all the levels. What is even better is that this sequel is a full premium game, which means no IAPs or ads to deal with while you are having fun.
Rovio’s new sequel to the Angry Birds game got updated with a whole new chapter added to it called Pigsyland. Like with previous Angry Birds games that get new chapters, Pigsyland brings with it a bunch of new levels that players will need to work their way through.
So Rovio has announced that an official sequel to Angry Birds will be arriving at the end of this month. That’s right Angry Bird fans, you will soon be able to download Angry Birds 2 on July 30th. The announcement originally came via a Tweet (followed by an official blog post) from the official Angry Birds account with a statement of “Bigger. Badder. Birdier. July 30th”. Accompanying the statement was a giant number 2 image with a very angry looking red bird inside the two.
