Fun Run Turns Out to Be Pretty Fun

Tweet Sometimes a recipe for success doesn’t seem unlikely at all: take Fun Run by Dirtybit (a TriplePoint client), for example. In the developers’ own words, it’s inspired by “Classic multiplayer games like Mario Kart,” where you and a pack of other runners face off in “side-scrolling races full of havoc and mayhem,” all in real-time.

I Hope My Towers Float in Pirate Legends

Tweet Nobody is disputing the almighty tower as an excellent defensive fortification. From bloons to barbarians, if it’s making a beeline for your home base, a well-placed and well-armed tower can take care of it. What about enemies attacking from the water, though? It seems like a solid foundation is kind of crucial to the [...]

Aarklash: Legacy Has a Confrontational Website

Tweet Cyanide Studio really is one of the most confrontational companies around. When they’re not confronting you with Dogs of War, it seems they’re busy establishing an entire legacy based around confrontation. Put another way, Cyanide Studio (a TriplePoint client) is going to release Aarklash: Legacy, a game based around the Confrontation franchise, and there’s a new website [...]

Robots May Now Punch Monsters: Pacific Rim Out on Mobile

Tweet Sometimes, we find it sufficient to simply tell you why a new mobile game is worth your time. In some cases, though — like with the new Pacific Rim game from TriplePoint client Reliance Games — you really just need to understand what it looks like when a huge robot uppercuts a monster right in [...]

PlayFirst Finds Gamers Rate TabletsFirst

Tweet Just because a company is called PlayFirst, doesn’t mean there’s isn’t room for ResearchSecond. PlayFirst, the TriplePoint client behind such runaway mobile hits as Diner Dash, has been doing a bit of research on mobile gaming, seeing just how folks play the games they provide. The answer, according to a study conducted with Frank N. Magid [...]

Bones to Pick: Five-Up Dominoes World

Tweet Poker, poker, poker, Scrabble, and probably more poker — those are the games one instantly thinks of when they imagine real-time social games on Facebook. Sure, there have been some high-end exceptional real-time games on the network, but in terms of casual sit-down-and-play titles, poker is generally in the cards. (It was too easy [...]

Tynon Gets its Shine On

Tweet It’s been a while since we heard from the Tynon team (a TriplePoint client) about their story-driven social RPG. It’s been through a lot since then — and now it’s debuting an all-new Tynon experience, with “a rich, epic story and vivid, high-quality art.” You can get to know Tynon all over again, right here.

Tweet Being in phone limbo is a terrifying prospect: caught in a never-ending loop of automated response menus, waiting on hold with only one terrible song playing over and over again, waiting for human contact that never comes. Well, now being in limbo on your phone just got a lot scarier, but in a supremely [...]
