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 [...]

Leaping Lepidopterology: Butterfly Sky

Tweet Sometimes, a publisher’s back catalog gives you a pretty good idea what to expect from their next game. Funday Factory (a TriplePoint client) is the developer behind “award-winning apps Axe in Face, Driftin’ and Smashville.” So, for their next app, they’re obviously going to do something like… a game where you jump through a pleasant cloudy skyscape [...]

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.

Thursday Appdate: Planet Plop

Tweet My first round of Planet Plop from PiVi lasted all of three seconds. Appearances, I quickly learned, can be deceiving: despite the lighthearted and cartoonish visuals, the upbeat music, and a potentially juvenile name like Planet Plop, I found myself playing a game that was startlingly difficult — demanding precise control and quick reflexes, and built around [...]

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, [...]

Thursday Appdate: Le Vamp

Tweet When is it good to be bad? There’s a lot of pretty fantastic games out there that do pretty well for themselves by allowing the player the chance to thrive as the ‘bad guy’ – Evilot, Don’t Touch My Gems, and Vampire Season to name just a few. In some cases, these games work because beating [...]

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 [...]

Gamenauts (a TriplePoint client) gave us a heads-up today that they were now going to release Nerdook’s Nuclear Outrun next week, on July 18th. Not all the bombs are ready to drop just yet, perhaps, but at least we [...]

Tweet It is as it was foretold: Contra lives again! Just not for very long, because, you know, one-hit kills and aliens and stuff. Don’t let that stop you from giving it your best shot, of course. Contra Evolution, a release that “combines all of the best parts of the original Contra game that players remember with mechanics designed [...]
