Burn the Rope

Posted by Dennis Zimpel On June - 27 - 2011

Be ready for a hot title for Android, because with Burn the Rope comes a game where you can play with fire. In this game movement, skill and concentration is required of you, so it’s not for the lazy gamers among you. Read my review and decide for yourself, I like it and I hope I can “infect” you, if you get the joke, you’ve already won something xD.

Uncle Pumpkin’s Journey

Posted by Dennis Zimpel On June - 24 - 2011

The game Uncle Pumpkin’s Journey is a great free game in the 2-D perspective from the manufacturer rpg90. I have played the game for a while to find out, if it is worthwhile for you to invest your time and since we don’t talk about bad games at Androidpimps, you know now it is worth a look.

Contract Killer

Posted by Hon-Bon Lee On June - 20 - 2011

According to the Android Market until now “Contract Killer” has already between 1 and 5 million installations and since I’m hooked on the game for the last two weeks, there needs to be a review!
I hope you’ll find my first review interesting. :)

Oldschool gamer will remember the line of First Person-Arcade Shootergames, where you just navigate a crosshair per mouse and then you just shoot around. Be it human enemies in war, Aliens or some items like cans. Contract Killer has a lot of similarities with these shooters, but it’s not a rail shooter like the arcade ports of the Operation W*lf-, House of the Dead- or Time Crisis-series. The levels or better said the areas in Contract Killer are not scrolling, because the player is a sniper. As a professional sniper you hide and don’t go in guns blazing like an action hero. From the window a sniper only has a limited view on the surrounding area.

Imaginary Range

Posted by Dan Mousavi On June - 15 - 2011

Square Enix just released a new kind of manga/game hybrid in the Android market and after playing the first episode, I’m absolutely hooked on the concept.
The story starts in a variation of Paris, you follow a guy named Cid and his partner Ciela, who have a device called PAD that let’s them imagine stuff and create it out of thin air. They fight monsters that someone else imagined up and travel through different worlds. In the first part, they fight a huge monster at the Eiffel Tower and meet another group of people, that can also imagine up stuff. The whole story feels like the first chapter in a Manga series and will hopefully make more sense further down the road, but the first chapter is more focused in showing you the concept instead of developing a solid background story.

Samurai II: Vengeance

Posted by Dennis Zimpel On June - 8 - 2011

A few months ago we have already reported about Samurai II: Vengeance, it is now available in the market and should finally be presented here. Many of you unfortunaly will realize that Samurai II: Vengeance is a Tegra-2-only game and it runs only on a few devices, but with a little tool you can play it also on non-tegra-devices, Google will help you for sure to get it on your smartphone. However, here is my review on a LG Optimus Speed​​.
