Arena of Heroes is a Mobile Cross-Platform Turn-based Asynchronous Multiplayer Online Battle Arena

Tweet So, is that enough genres and buzzwords in one description for you? Stay with me on this one, because it’s worth the explanation: start off with your standard MOBA setup, including most of the features of a League of Legends or Defense of the Ancients. You’ve got a symmetrical map with three lanes, a series of [...]

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 [...]

Thursday Appdate: Solstice Arena

Tweet MOBA is an extremely popular genre right now, both as a cerebral, team-based eSport and as a major driver of hits within the games industry. Zynga is perhaps one of the best-known names in game development and publishing in the world. So, when Zynga releases a mobile MOBA, it’s the kind of thing you [...]

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 [...]

Pac-Man Eats the Last of Your Spare Time on Google Play

Tweet I’m not going to insult you by attempting to explain who PAC-MAN is, or his appeal, or make some joke about his appetite. Let’s cut right to the chase: the world’s leading consumer of dots is going free-to-play in a new mobile iteration, called PAC-MAN +Tournaments, and it’s out now on Google Play. If you’ve [...]

Raft Pirates Now Pirating Androids

Tweet I realize there’s a significant problem with stolen apps and jailbroken phones and pirated software, and so I don’t lightly make the suggestion that more piracy on the Android is a good thing. If it’s just the mechanical Raft Pirates, though, the mobile MMO miscreants we told you about a while ago, I figure it’s [...]

XBLA Goes F2P, OMFG — Happy Wars are Happily Happening

Tweet Free-to-Play games have been around for a long time now, showing the world that you can make remarkable amounts of money with something you refer to as “free.” These addict-them-first-and-then-let-them-pay-you titles have become pervasive across PC and mobile platforms, but there’s been one holdout — the staunchly money-based Xbox 360, which you’d think would [...]

Stop Endangering Animals, Start Ensafening Them

Tweet We here at Frisky Mongoose happen to like animals, if you hadn’t guessed. Even if a critter isn’t especially frisky, we are on board with various animal-related ideas. So, we’re glad to see that TriplePoint client SGN feels the same way, if their new title Rescue Reef is any indication. It’s a new free iOS [...]

World of Battles Increases Battles in the World, Also Gems

Tweet When your game is called World of Battles: Morningstar, it’s important that you offer one thing: a world with a lot of battles. So, in an effort to put some more battles in its World of Battles, TriplePoint client Frogwares has decided to merge their servers into one big giant realm of constant conflict. Now, every [...]

Atari Releases New Free Clown-Hurting Simulator

Tweet Man! TriplePoint client Atari just keeps the re-imagined classics coming. Between Asteroids, Breakout, and the ongoing contest for Pong, it’s like a regular Atari circus on mobile devices. Well, maybe that’s unfair. I don’t really mean there’s an Atari circus; it’s not like there’s clowns or a big top or anything. So let’s see what the [...]

Never Stop Playing Poker for Any Reason with Casino by Zeniz

Tweet Gambling at the casino is pretty great, but there’s two fatal flaws in the process: One; you have to go all the way there and at some point they will probably want you to leave. Two; they usually want money from you at some point. Both of these problems have now been solved by [...]

Team Meat is Not On Team Freemium

Tweet Freemium games may not be a business plan that’s for everybody, but it’s definitely not a plan that works for Edmund McMillen of Team Meat — they of the epic carnage-driven platformer that is Super Meat Boy. The Meating folks are working on a mobile version of SMB, and would like to let the world know [...]
