The enigma of a game called Flappy Bird that has seen a rather huge surge in popularity since its release onto Android and iOS isn't just a mindless, frustratingly difficult, yet somehow addictive game that you downloaded and now probably waste a ridiculous amount of time playing. No, Flappy Bird is much more than that. It's a pretty big success when it comes to revenues.
Back in August of 2012 Amazon created their own game development studio, appropriately named Amazon Game Studios, in an attempt to make their own games and publish them. Since the creation of this game development studio, not a whole lot has come from it aside from the odd Facebook game but there is also the the ability to make games for their own Android devices.
Usually when you get an update to a game that contains new characters, they happen to be ones that can move and do things. With the new Angry Birds Star Wars II update that just arrived this is mostly true, except for the fact that you can fling a carbonite frozen Han Solo at pigs until your heart's happy.
Tin Man Games is well-known for their interactive RPG books on Android, whether it be their own Gamebook Adventure series or bringing to life digitally the Fight Fantasy series of books. Well today the folks over at Tin Man Games have released something a little less serious but just as much fun called Zombocalypse Now.
A new endless runner has landed on Android a couple of days ago called The Great Martian War. However, this one isn't like most endless runners out there in the mobile gaming world and some could say that this one could easily give other much more popular games in this genre, such as Temple Run, a good run for their money.
We have had a few attempts at some real Pokemon-style of games on Android and a few have been pulled due to being too close to the actual Pokemon franchise. A new game is heading our way soon called Monster Legacy that hopes to fill the void of a Pokemon type of game on smartphones and tablets.
DeNA is usually on point when it comes to updating some of their more popular games with new content for each holiday that creeps up on us and Valentine's Day is apparently no exception to this. As of right now four of the more popular games will be getting very shortly their new Valentine's Day themed content added to them.
The currently and strangely popular game Flappy Bird has been invading the world quite nicely. Minecraft, where you can recreate anything and everything pretty much, now has its own Flappy Bird recreation that you can also download and play if you want additional mindless fun in Minecraft.
Pinball Arcade by FarSight Studios is one of the two major pinball platforms on numerous platforms including Android (both mobile and consoles like Ouya). Pinball Arcade up until now would reproduce actual pinball tables that used to exist, and some still do, in arcades and other places, bringing these true to life reproductions to mobile platforms so we could all play them.
A rather entertaining little retro looking game is heading our way in a few days called Only One. Developed by Rebel Binary, this game puts you in charge of your character who is somehow on top of a rather large pillar, way up in the sky, with the ultimate goal of pushing your enemies off of said pillar and hearing them scream as they fall to their brutal deaths far below.
For those of you who dig arcade side-scrolling shooters, or shmups depending on what you like to call them, there is a new one that was released the other day called Space Shooter Ultimate. As you would expect with a good shooter, you have plenty of levels to work your way through and boss fights to deal with.
