Humblebundle #2 for Android is now available

Posted by Dan Mousavi On March - 20 - 2012

The folks at humblebundle.com decided to string up a new package and this time all releases are exclusive titles that haven’t been launched on Android until now.

Sadly these are mostly old re-releases from other plattforms, that I wished for 2 years ago.
Here’s my short opinion on these games.

Canabalt
This classic running game is single handedly responsible for every of the 1000s of running games on Android. If you have never heard of Canabalt, you need to check it out for it’s great minimalistic pixel style, but gameplay wise the former king of the genre got usurped a long time ago by Games like Jetpack Joyride that expanded on the gameplay. Still, the music and the look and feel will keep this classic installed for a long time on my phone.

New Games roundup KW11 2012

Posted by Dan Mousavi On March - 18 - 2012

This week a few interesting games arrived on Android. If you are looking for new games, check out these releases:

Another World
One of my favorite games from the early 90’s and the best commercial game ever produced by a single person. Another world was one of the first action adventures and instantly made it’s Designer Eric Chahi an industry legend. It was also one of the first polygon based games, which gave it unprecended quality in animations and made it one of the first games with full motion videos. The technique he invented to display polygons in 2D is used to this day by programs like Flash. Even 20 years after the original release, this title is still wonderful to play.

Cut the Rope Experiments
Om Nom is back with new levels, gadgets and a mad german scientist. This second part initially has 5 level packs with 125 levels in total

10 Top Paid Games from February, that not enough people played

Posted by Dan Mousavi On March - 15 - 2012

Welcome to another Toplist. This month I’m focussing on games, that I thought didn’t get enough attention from the android gaming crowd.
I hate it when I see stats like the newest one from Androlib, the android market completely shifted to free or freemium games, because Google still hasn’t introduced a viable payment option for Android devices. Based on the Androlib stats there are roughly 2000 apps (not even games) that sold more than 5000 copies and only 40 sold more than 250k. That is a very bad joke if you compare it to the available devices, no other plattform ever had so much quality and so little revenue to show for it. So please check out these quality games and start to buy some stuff if you can, it is a shame that none of these games have sold more than 5k copies and I’m sick and tired of ad-supported games or freemium schemes, because the quality suffers from it.

Azada
A puzzle game with a lot of variation

Cardboard castle
A very good adventure puzzle that will challenge your brain

Minecraft Pocket Edition: Version 0.2.0 now available

Posted by Dan Mousavi On February - 11 - 2012

As of now the huge Android-Gamer-Community can rejoice in the new update of Minecraft – Pocket Edition. Here we summed up all the new features of version 0.2.0 of the mobile version of Minecraft:

blocks leave items after destroying: When destroying a block, it leaves a small copy of it in the world, which can be collected

limited quantity of blocks: many blocks are only capable of being placed after collecting them befire

tools: You can choose tools in Your inventory having different speeds of destroying blocks: shovel destroys sand and dirt faster, pickaxe stones and ores etc. Currently tools last forever

edited inventory: The inventory now lists tools and counters number of collected blocks.

new blocks: new placeable blocks like stairs, fences and doors were added

two gamemodes: In creative mode You can place infinite amounts of blocks, destroy blocks faster and fly through the world with double-tapping the jump-button. In survival mode there are health points: Falling of cliffs and being attacked will reduce them.

sheeps: There are free running sheeps now, eating grass from grass blocks sometimes

zombies: in the – new added – night You will find zombies in survival mode attacking You. In day they willdie slowly

conclusion:

The Pocket Edition is still nowhere near being ready, but it becomes more and more similar to alpha version of minecraft of mid 2010. We are looking forward to further updates with crafting and more mobs and animals.

Humble Bundle for Android (EDGE, Anomaly, Osmos and World of Goo)

Posted by Dan Mousavi On February - 1 - 2012

The Humble Bundle is a famous indie game package, where you can decide how much you want to pay for it and who should get your money.
It is one of the fairest deals for gamers and the games are always high quality indie games, they have a knack for choosing the best of the best that the scene has to offer and making an irresistible bundle out of it. I own all the previous humble bundles and was very happy to see that their newest bundle is for Android!
If you buy the Humble Android bundle, you get all the games for multiple plattforms. You get the Android version and the PC, Mac and Linux version of the game and you can always download them from the website and if you pay more than a dollar, you even get a steam key to unlock them on your Steam account.
Also there are multiple ways to pay, it supports Google Checkout (you’ll have to pay a minimum of 30 cents, becuase using Checkout costs them money) and you can pay with PayPal. You can even pay through Amazon payments, so there is no excuse that you are unable to pay for these games.

So now that we have established that you are a bad gamer if you don’t buy this bundle, let me tell you what is inside.
