Ghost Train: Spookiest Trip in the World

Tweet An important distinction: Soul Train is a musical variety show featuring soul music; it is not a train that ferries souls to the afterlife. Ghost Train, however, is about a train that ferries souls to the afterlife. Now that you understand that difference, you will not be confused when Ghost Train from European developer goodbeans launches on iOS later [...]

The Konami Code Had Better Be in Contra Evolution

Tweet Basic and exciting news first: CocoaChina (a TriplePoint client) is teaming up with Konami to bring a completely faithful “reincarnation” of the original Contra to mobile devices. It’s called Contra Evolution, and it’s “the first fully licensed mobile version of Konami’s classic” and promises to deliver a game that “feels, sounds, and plays just like the [...]

Knights of Pen & Paper & Pre-orders & Previews

Tweet We talked briefly about Knights of Pen & Paper +1 Edition a couple of months & days ago; it’s the game where you play players who are playing a game. Well, Paradox Interactive (a TriplePoint client & friend) has finally issued the errata to their last printing, and it came with a release date: June [...]

Reliance Games Spending Summer in the Pacific Rim

Tweet After their work on After Earth, Reliance Games (a TriplePoint client) has lined up their next mobile title — and it’s got another big blockbuster behind it: Pacific Rim, a movie (and now also a game) where enormous robots beat up on equally enormous monsters. If we’re going to build enormous robots, after all, it’s [...]

Flipping Out over In-game Music: Pinball Rocks HD

Tweet How many times have you been playing a game, heard a great song inside that game, and then decided you wanted to have the song from that game? I do this too often to keep track, though I’m fairly sure it started back when “Superman” by Goldfinger was included in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater in [...]

Monsters Invade: Oz Invades: iOS

Tweet The merry old land of Oz is a pretty dangerous place, regardless of which incarnation you visit. Depending on when you stop by, you’ve got to worry about flying monkeys and angry apple trees, or Quadling armies, or witches who sing about how unfair things are. It’s not completely unreasonable, then, to think that [...]

PvZ2 F2P? OK

Tweet As much fun as we’ve had with the new Facebook iteration of horticultural tower defense game Plants vs. Zombies — namely, Plants vs. Zombies Adventures — we’ve continued to hungrily desire the full-fledged sequel that PopCap announced a while back. It’s the sort of game we could easily see ourselves shuffling across a crowded lawn to [...]

Get Ahead of Nuclear Outrun

Tweet Nuclear Outrun is played like this: an ICBM has unexpectedly appeared on the horizon, and you have about 30 seconds to get out of town before it destroys you and everything else. You can actually try this yourself right now; the flash version of the game by Nerdook is right over here. It seems [...]

Dogs of War Online Includes Lion, Wolf, and Ram Factions, No Dog Faction

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

Tweet The last time we discussed Dogs of War Online, I was needlessly confrontational about the upcoming game from TriplePoint client Cyanide because the game had Confrontation at its very core. Now, though, they’ve revealed the three available factions for players to work with in the game, and they’re the Lion, Wolf, and Ram factions. Last I [...]

Tiny Brains Coming to Big Conventions and New Consoles

Tweet Want to try out Tiny Brains? Unless your brain is actually tiny, the answer is plainly ‘yes.’ If you’re not interested in a “3D co-op action puzzle game in which up to four players can take the role of tiny (but super-powered!) lab animals,” then there’s something wrong with you and we at Frisky Mongoose cannot [...]

Bloom Box: Free Flowers by Shooting Flowers at Flowers

Tweet There’s a common theme running through Bloom Box, the upcoming iOS puzzler from TriplePoint client Nexx Studio, but I just can’t seem to put my green thumb on it. Bloom Box tasks players with placing the titular bloom boxes into a field of flowers in such a way that, when triggered, they will fire projectiles (made [...]

Spry Fox Starts Down the Road Not Taken

Tweet Spry Fox — they of the Triple Town and Highgrounds puzzle hits of recent times — broke the icy silence today surrounding their next project. It’s called Road Not Taken, and yes, it’s inspired somewhat by the Robert Frost poem with the diverging roads. It’s also extremely pretty to look at, so far: According to the foxes [...]
