The first thought I had when I looked at the screenshots of Planet NamNam from the Game Cooks was, "This looks like it will be a lot of fun!" The art work is supremely original, the story line is funny, if not humorously creative, and the genre, arcade first person shooter, is one that could use a breath of fresh air. Did the Game Cooks put the right amount of that special sauce into their game?
One Man Left Studios is comprised of two old friends that went to elementary school together. Alex Okafor is the developer, and Adam Stewart, provides the artwork and animation. They work remotely from Georgia and Alabama. That setup is quite interesting, but it works, because One Man Left has created some fantastic and fun games that require good gaming skills. Their latest entry, Tilt to Live: Gauntlet's Revenge, will be making its way to the Play Store soon.
Just a few months ago, Goon Studios, a game developer based in Pasadena, California, released the artistically adorable and enjoyable platformer/runner, Boogey Boy. If you haven't played it yet, you should. It is fun, unique and definitely worth your time. We've been in touch with the Goons, since they released Boogey Boy. Recently, they were kind enough, to share an exclusive piece of art for their next project, Monster vs. Sheep with, Droid Gamers.
"Alone in a dungeon sat a Dodo in a cage. She was overwhelmed by sadness, her eggs had been taken away." So begins your journey with a brilliantly conceived, and challenging platforming game, called Dodo Master. The game was released earlier this year on iOS, with a preponderance of high praise. Android gamers will have the opportunity very shortly, to experience what many iOS users have enjoyed. It is an old school platformer that rewards you for your skills, and punishes you for the lack thereof. Semir Saleh, the independent game designer of Dodo Master, was kind enough to speak with me, to talk about his game, his origins and why he is willing to do it all over again. I introduce to you, the Dodo Master himself, Semir Saleh.
Ketchapp seems to be delivering simple and fun games, one right after the other. In the past month or so, they have pushed The Tower, Amazing Thief and Make Them Fight into the Play Store. Thus far, all of the games have a few things in common. They have clean and simple graphics, they are easy to pick up and put down for quick game play, and each one is entertaining in its own right. Most recently, Ketchapp, in collaboration with WF Games, brought Stick Hero to the Play Store. Anybody in your family can pick up and play this game easily. All it requires is a good judge of distance.
Nitrome has made a follow-up to their popular title 8-Bit Doves. In the same glorious, and almost monochromatic fashion, they have released Endless Doves into the Play Store. Yes, let all the Flappy Bird comparisons begin. In this case, I don't think they are really warranted. The quality of this extraordinarily difficult game is unmatched in its control, atmosphere and personality. It is a straightforward game, that is as challenging as Wave, Wave to play, by Noodlecake Games. However, accepting failure with this title, is much easier, because of the delightful touches the designers have placed in the game. Endless Doves should be downloaded for the attention to detail alone. The graphics are a throwback to the early days of Nintendo Gameboys.
So we talk about some serious issues on this site sometimes as well as talking about new games being released or games heading our way soon. Interviews, game reviews and so on, a lot of generally serious things. With that said, we wanted to do something a little different and start a more enjoyable and entertaining series here on DroidGamers every Friday called Fun Fridays.
Black Friday is almost upon us and when that day arrives, the general population of the United States loses their minds and goes on a shopping spree. Of course this is because every merchant puts all their goods on sale with deep discounts. Nvidia is planning to jump in on
We have been following the progress of the Lollipop update since it was announced that the Nvidia Shield Tablet would be the first commercial product outside of the new Nexus series of devices that would be receiving the new Android OS. Well the update is right on time and is
