OrangePixel has decided to put up six of their game on sale for the entire week in a sale called “For The Love of Games”, since this is Valentine’s Day week. For those of you not familiar with OrangePixel, this company puts out some great retro arcade/dungeon crawler type of games, depending on the franchise you’re looking at getting.
A couple of weeks ago OrangePixel announced that they were working on a new installment into the Meganoid franchise. Well since then the developers have released details about the game, which you can check out here, and now we have a new gameplay trailer for us to check out while we wait for the game’s release.
Released by Pixelbite, space Marshals 2 is the sequel to the original game. To check out our review of the first one, click here. To be quite upfront, both of these games are very well-made. And there are things that have been improved upon with the sequel, while managing to not take a step back anywhere. It’s rare that you see only Improvement in a sequel, without something unintentionally offsetting that.
Red Barton and The Sky Pirates is an upcoming 3rd person shooter that hearkens back to the days of OutRun, and AfterBurner, with a story mode a la Star Fox (the N64 classic). The player takes on the role of Red Barton, a pilot of a WWI era fighter airplane fighting his way through waves of enemies, on a mission to save his love and restore his honor.
It seems like hybrid games are all the rage these days, and Rogue Life tries to mix some interesting features into it’s new game. Rogue Life is a combination of arcade shooter, endless runner, and RPG all rolled into one. The game is played in portrait mode, and you use one finger to move your characters from side to side.
If you’re like me and love the old school shooters of the 90’s like Quake or Unreal, you’re gonna love Rocket Shock. Rocket Shock is an arena style shooter currently in alpha on the Google Play Store. Even in it’s alpha state, this game is fast, runs super smooth and is a ton of fun to play.
Go Go Fairy gals is an arcade shooter where players guide a Fairy around a map blasting baddies with the power of cuteness (I guess). Developers FredBear Games & PlayPlayFun have soft-launched their newest title in a few select regions; the title is available to download from Canada, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia and Taiwan, with the global launch coming soon.
“In a time of gun and sword, the magical stone that maintains the balance of the world is stolen by high-tech aliens. The world is hanging on a thin thread. It all depends on you retrieving the magical stone…” That’s the description accompanying Chinese based developer, ChillyRoom’s new title, launched in an open beta on Google Play.
Towaga has arrived and tasks players with the unenviable job of standing alone in the dark and keeping the shadows at bay. The gorgeously-designed shooter is now out on Android, and asks only one thing of players: Don’t get hit.
Nvidia, the gaming hardware company, features games that run well on their hardware, and sometimes exclusively so. Like many other companies, they’re offering deep discounts on many of these games. Some of them are native to Android, while others must be steamed using their subscription service called GeForce Now. And do make note of the fact that any games purchased through GeForce Now also comes with a redemption code from either Steam or GOG, so the games can still be enjoyed offline, and independently of the streaming service, albeit on a PC.
