Mortal Instruments Not a Game About Dying Pianos

Tweet When I hear about a game entitled The Mortal Instruments, I naturally imagine a game about a saxophone and a piano with only six months to live, and they need to put on one last amazing concert before it’s their time. Then I find out that The Mortal Instruments is actually a book series and an upcoming [...]

Nun + Run + Gun = Fun

Tweet It’s remarkable, given their tendency towards reclusive lives in the convent, that nuns find so many reasons to go on the offensive. The nun squad from Frima Studio (a TriplePoint client) does seem to run into grotesque demon hordes pretty frequently, though, so I’m sure they can be forgiven. (They would know best about [...]

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. [...]

Wednesdroid: Monster Shooter 2

Tweet Monsters are not always bad, despite their outward appearance. Sometimes, they’re just out to pursue higher education — heck, sometimes they actually love you. Sometimes, though, monsters are just shameless instigators, traveling to earth to cause destruction and threaten the well-being of your cat. These are the monsters of Monster Shooter 2 from Gamelion Studios, [...]

Puzzle & Dragons & Infographics & All the Money

Tweet Chalk up another milestone for runaway hit Puzzle & Dragons from GungHo. The game’s userbase is up to 17 Million in Japan alone, according to Tech in Asia, and that’s keeping their $3.7M per day revenue going strong. To put this in simple and pleasantly colorful terms, the folks at Download Free Games have pieced [...]

Wednesdroid: 9 Lives: Casey and Sphynx

Tweet Have you ever had one of those days where everything goes wrong? You know, where you’re plagued by angry cats, you accidentally destroy a priceless artifact at your job, and then a bunch of mummies try to strangle you while you start turning into a cat yourself? The life of a museum security guard [...]

Contra Evolution Will Kill You Over a Tablet

Tweet So, Contra: Evolution finally released a couple of weeks ago, and it’s every bit as punishingly violent as you remember. With or without The Code, if you’ve been playing since it came out, you’ve probably been killed several dozen times by now. Well, now CocoaChina (a TriplePoint client) is giving you a reason to keep [...]

Angry Birds Star Wars II Includes Physical Toys

Tweet You know, I’ll admit it: despite my admiration for the polish and charm that Rovio puts into its games, I felt dubious when Angry Birds Star Wars first arrived on the scene. The curmudgeonly cynic in me just rolled his eyes, and thought, “great; two powerhouse franchises teaming up for an obvious cash-in.” Of course, [...]

Thursday Appdate: Tiny Thief

Tweet If there’s one thing you can always count on in a Rovio game, it’s charm. Every title in the Angry Birds series is loaded with it, which is what’s made the franchise a household name, and it’s extremely evident in their new Rovio Stars publishing initiative as well. The newest title in that initiative, Tiny Thief, [...]

Wednesdroid: Battle Bears Gold

Tweet Industry critics and analysts love to throw around the phrase “console quality” when they describe high-end mobile titles, and it’s not difficult to see why. Mobile titles, particularly on tablets, have easily gotten up to speed with prior console generations in terms of graphics, animation, and scope, and a number of high-profile franchises have [...]
