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


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.

Sonic CD

Posted by Dan Mousavi On January - 5 - 2012

In 1993 Sega released the Mega CD addon in europe and in the same year they released this gem of a jump and run for it. I remember how I visited a classmate and how absolutely blown away I was from the graphics in “Road Avenger” and the gameplay of the exclusice Sonic CD game. 18 Years later I finally have my own copy and can play this classic title anywhere I want on my Android device and I must say, it aged well.

Qualcomm MDP MSM8660 Review

Posted by Jakob Ginzburg On December - 30 - 2011

Qualcomm Developer Programm

Due to Apple’s “one device for all target groups” policy, the perception has changed dramatically in terms of device diversity in recent years. “Diversity” changed to “fragmentation”. Forgotten are all the years, where developers had to adapt their software several times for different Symbian OS phones. Often people overlook the fact that many devices also bring many target groups, which bring many new ideas to the table, which can then be monetized.

After the newest boom of mobile apps, which are existing for over ten years now, a lot of small and big developers could reach new markets. Through the huge device diversity it became easier to find a customer base.

If you want to start to develop mobile apps you will have to ask yourself a few questions. For example which system and which plattform should I choose? At first the OS doesn’t matter, the processor architecture is more interesting. The biggest market share in that regard has Qualcomm, which supports developers, who can and want to invest a sum in the „Snapdragon Mobile Development Plattform“.

The MDP MSM8660 (that’s the name of the current version) consist of a high class developer smartphone and professional tools, bundled with a lot of documentations.
These give young developers with a easy way in. Senior developers will find useful information on how to further optimize your games and apps for the Snapdragon-CPU.

But what exactly is Snapdragon and why should developers invest time into this plattform?
