New copy protection for Android released

Posted by Dan Mousavi On July - 28 - 2010

We early adopters know all to well about all the good stuff the Android market provides, at the moment everyone has the possibility to to buy an app for 24 hrs., back it up and then return the installed version. While this is fine and dandy for indie developers, who update their game frequently and have some sort of copy protection through that, it is a major drawback for the big players in the industry, that polish their games a lot further and release them as a one shot (a good example would be Gameloft, who deliver high quality games, but don’t update them very often).

Skies of Glory released

Posted by Dan Mousavi On July - 16 - 2010

SGN released their hotly anticipated WWII Dogfighter today, the game is one of the best looking 3D Games on Android to date and runs perfectly smooth on Snapdragon devices. The Android version costs 4,99$, opposite to the Iphone version that was free but had in app purchases for the planes. The Android version comes with at least 18 airplanes, 11 missions + tutorial, but the real fun lies in bluetooth and online cross plattform multiplayer, so go out and hunt those Iphoneys. ;)
We’ve shot a quick video of the beginning of the first mission for a quick look, but there are some problems with Youtube at the moment, so you’ll have to make due with the official trailer, check back over the weekend for our own video.

Update: Video added

Write for Androidpimps, become famous! ;)

Posted by Dan Mousavi On July - 14 - 2010

With over 10000 visitors in the last month Androidpimps is one, if not the biggest gaming site for Android games. When I started this page, I wanted to deliver the best page for Android gamers on the net and give Android users a similar site to Touch Arcade, which in my opinion was a success. Since we started uploading videos of games just 2 months ago, around 12000 people viewed our videos and user numbers climb steadily. The foundation is done and now I need your help to keep the momentum.

Since I am primarily a Game Developer, I need more time to focus on developing games instead of talking about them. I’ll have a lot to do when August comes and Unity 3 will be published, because I’m in the middle of founding my own company and am developing currently three different games with different dev teams. I’ll continue writing reviews and posting news, but to keep up with all the news and all the releases I need more people, that want a site like this and are willing to contribute.

Do not worry about the bilingual nature of this site, if you can write in either english or german, it is enough, we have people that can translate your articles. If you are unsure, if you got what it takes to write a good article, try posting it in the forums with your real name, if we like it, we will publish it and credit you as the author.

While we are at the subject, I’d like to take a minute to thank our contributors to this day, thanks go out to Dennis Zimpel, David Holliss, Arbi Nazarian, Marc Rittig, Ray the admin and Damon Prodan for their ongoing support for Androidpimps. Without you guys the page would not be as good as it is today.

I’d also like to invite anyone who reads our site to join per Google Friendconnect, so you can write commentaries, sent private messages etc.
We also love every follower on Twitter and Facebook, so if you want to feel loved, just follow us there too. ^^
And personally I’d really like it if we could get some discussions started in the forums, even if it is just a discussion about how much it sucks, because with the little action it had I’m still not sure if it even works as it should. ;)
