Disney Infinity Toy Box: 2.0 has finally been released on Google Play, but how does it hold up on mobile? I've been playing around with the features the new-to-Android game offers up. Although I've been a Disney Infinity fan since the first game's release, and pretty much a Disney fanatic since I was old enough to speak, I'm going to do my best as any decent game "journalist" (I use that term very loosely) would and give my honest opinion.
The Tribe Games is a studio based in the Ukraine. The head of the studio, is a past BMX Champion of Ukraine, Andrew Sirchenko. He and his team of eleven digital enthusiasts, have recently released Stickman Trials for Android devices. It is a colorful BMX trials game that is easy to play, and has a variety of tracks. While it is fun and immediately accessible, mastery of the game will take some time.
Leo's Fortune is a platformer by 1337 and Senri. This is a game that's gorgeous to look at, and fun to play. In some ways, it felt a bit like a modern riff on the classic Sonic games. In other ways, it's short, sweet, and to the point. Let's see how.
Deus Ex: The Fall is a First Person Shooter from Square Enix. There's more to this game though, as fans of the series can attest. The game includes elements of stealth, computer hacking, RPG customizations, and moral decisions within the gameplay. The story also has several different threads to it: crooked pharmaceutical companies, whistleblowers, rogue paramilitary groups, assassinations, human augmentation, and more. All in all, it makes for an intriguing story.
Platformers are plentiful in the Google Play Store. You don't have to look very hard to find one to suit your needs. However, it is always enjoyable to find a platforming game that gets it right. The game should have just enough difficulty to keep you challenged, and it should continue to introduce new elements to keep the game fresh. May I introduce you to Minik Run, a delightfully simple and elegant platforming game.
Bladelords: The Fighting Game is created by Playsoft Games, using the Unreal Engine. The game play hearkens back to the days of good arcade fighting games. In some small ways, it reminds me of Soul Calibur. It is a good fighting game that you may enjoy, if you don't mind timed game play, due to it being a free to play game.
With a flutter, Neo's eyes pop open. He says, "I know Kung-Fu!" Morpheus peers at him intently and responds, "Show me." Thus begins one of the more popular fight sequences in recent movie history, taken from the film, The Matrix. Out of the Republic of Azerbaijan, twenty-six year old game creator, Toghrul Samadov had an idea for a fighting game for mobile devices. He and his team have created Fatal Fight, and it delivers a mighty blow to the fighting genre with a simple game play mechanic.
Every now and then you come across a game that checks all the boxes for enjoyable game play. The game has a character that you care about, it is fun to play, and the graphics and music are done just right. Funkoi LLC, nails it with their latest release, Kiwi Wonderland. Though the genre of endless runners is definitely flooded, this game will definitely serve as a life preserver. It simply is a joy to play.
The runner is a portable gaming genre that’s been recycled so heavily that it’s less of a dead horse and more of a stud genocide. It makes sense given the limitations of a touch screen that removing a directional pad would improve platform gaming. For every Temple Run, there’s countless droves of imitators or corporate tie-ins that bloat the market and give critics the right to say it’s not a legitimate gaming console.
Team Signal LLC, has recently delivered to the Google Play Store, a game that requires good hand eye coordination and incalculable dexterity when it comes to your fingers. Hyper Square is the latest twitch-quick type game to play on your Android device. If you like music, and levels that require memory, as well as speed in game play, then Hyper Square is a game that you should download. Just how fast can you hit that download button?
As we mentioned a few weeks back, Land Air Sea Warfare (LASW) is an RTS game that was originally released on desktops, followed by iOS, and eventually Android. After playing, and at times enjoying, LASW, this game isn't ready for "prime time". I have a soft spot for this genre, and this high hopes for this game. While the developer seems to have added some ways to make it easier to move masses of units quickly (a must on touch-based hardware such as phones and tablet), there are too many flaws and oversights to justify the In-App Purchasing price of $4.99.
