Released by Valve, Half-Life 2 is an icon of voodoo gaming as a whole, not just its genre of First-Person Shooting. The game is available for weekday I believe is anything running Nvidia's SOC, and outright requires a controller to play. Never having played a Half-Life game before, I was quite excited at the opportunity. I've spent the part few weeks playing through this game, and this is my review.
I will start by saying that I am not a fan of zombies, or anything related to zombies. There are a plethora of zombie games that are available in the Play Store, specifically related to the aforementioned subject matter. Generally speaking, I just don't play zombie games... until now. Zombie Catchers by Two Men and a Dog is entertaining, unique and has you running a franchise that sells unpalatable drinks... or so you would think.
Thanks to titles such as SolForge, Order & Chaos: Duels, and Heartstone, collectible card games have emerged as an incredibly popular genre on mobile platforms. That EA wished to capitalize on the popularity of the genre and add to the proliferation of TCGs in the Play Store is no real surprise. However, that EA decided to put forth a TCG in the form of the Base Command mini-game included in the Star Wars Battlefront companion app, is quite the surprise.
Studio Baikin is an independent game studio based in Lyon, France. What we know about this studio is that they produce good games that have a visual aesthetic that captures you. They are the creators of Dark Guardians, Climax and Slashing Demons. Their latest game Atomi, is a logic-puzzle game that is just as enjoyable as their last puzzle game Climax, though they are a bit different from one another.
If you enjoy watching MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fighting, then 360 Studios has a new game that you may be interested in. MMA Federation is now available to download in the Google Play Store. We had an opportunity to play this one a bit before the actual release today. The game is intriguing. I say intriguing, because I did not realize that the game would be turn-based fighting. It adds a completely different level of strategy to your gameplay. No button mashing will take place in this one, at least not in the way you think.
League of Monkeys is a game development company based in Melbourne, Australia. They recently released a racing game meant for those that enjoy cars with souped up engines, and racing challenges, that can only be completed with great driving skill. Torque Burnout is for those that love to hear engines roar, and like the smell of burnt rubber. If that is your cup of tea, Torque Burnout is available to download in the Play Store.
It is hard to escape games these days that choose to forgo great detail in the visuals department, for a more retro look. The games are everywhere in the Play Store. are everywhere. Sometimes you come across one that is great to play, and at the same time, the pixels look amazing. I am not exactly sure what lures me into the pixels that have been created by the Super Mega Quest team, but I like what they have done!
One of the great things about mobile gaming is that there are a lot of games available. That too, can also be a downside of mobile gaming, because good, fun and quality games are a little bit harder to find. NLABSOFT Inc. located in Seoul, South Korea, has released a game that is fun, with simple controls and gameplay that is challenging at the same time. Jump Warrior is an RPG that will pit you against skeletons and other beasts, but not quite in the way you expect.
Strike Suit Zero is a space sim that is released by Born Ready Games. Being a fan of this genre, it was one I was looking to sink my teeth into, and I went into the game with moderate to high expectation. Let's see how the game actually played.
As fans the world over await the December 18th release of Episode VII with feverish anticipation (myself included), many have turned to the recent onslaught of media offerings to get their interim Star Wars fix. With a slew of new EU novels, multiple Marvel comic books, a new animated series and the blockbuster release of Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars fans have been fed a continuous stream of Star Wars content over the past year. But what of those Star Wars fans that are more inclined to consume content on their mobile devices? Electronic Arts sought to leave no stone un-turned in that regard, but after having spent some time with their recent mobile “RPG,” Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, I am of the mind that this was a stone best left undisturbed.
There are quite a few fishing games in the Play Store. Most of them haven't really held my attention for long. Mobirix's Fishing Hook is another story. Yes, it is free to play, but don't let that stop you from trying out this game. In short order, take the bait. This game is good. It is fun, free, easy on the eyes and simple to play.
