Earlier this morning Nintendo and DeNA announced a partnership where the two companies would be working together to bring Nintendo IPs to mobile gamers.

Every once in a while, a completely refreshing game lands in the Play Store. The key word in the previous sentence is lands. Primarily because that is what the main character, The Sleeping Prince, accomplishes in the game. He ends up landing on platforms, beds, bouncing plants, and a cadre of other places to help his kingdom. With excellent ragdoll physics, Signal Studios, the game developer, with partner Tilting Point, have created a lush world for this puzzle/platformer to succeed in many ways. The Sleeping Prince is now available to download in the Play Store and the Amazon App Store, and it shouldn't be missed.

However that appears to be changing now with Google announcing that they will begin reviewing apps and games to uncover any violations (TOS violations, inappropriate content, rating violations etc etc) and malware.
Breaking news is coming out of Tokyo this morning as Nintendo has announced that the company has teamed up with DeNA to bring games to smartphones and tablets. On top of that, the agreement is also to build a new multi-membership service accessible worldwide.
We haven't posted about a game from Herocraft in some time but today changes that with the announcement of World of Dungeons, a new game Herocraft is currently developing. This game is a little different than what you might expect from Herocraft who has made such games as the Majesty and Farm Frenzy franchises.
When Google first announced it was bringing VR technology to the masses through a cardboard interface, I thought it was one of their famous April Fool’s pranks. Seeing as how April was still several months away, either they were actually serious or really getting a leg up on other pranks this year.
