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 [...]

Indentured Servitude Remains Fun in Papa’s Cupcakeria

Tweet Papa Louie, the mustachioed restaurateur who stars in Flipline’s ongoing Papa Louie Arcade series, is a shrewd businessman — and also kind of a jerk. Every few months, the guy offers a hapless guy or gal some fantastic prize, say, season tickets to the home team. The catch, of course, is that you’ll be [...]

Even Usain Bolt Cannot Outrun Death in Temple Run

Tweet Please understand that I say the following with nothing but love for both Temple Run and admiration for Olympic champion Usain Bolt: today’s amazing news that the world’s fastest man has been added to Temple Run 2 as a playable character carries with it a bit of a discouraging undertone. Yes, it’s a rather perfect cameo [...]

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 [...]

If You Like the DASH Series So Much, Why Don’t You Marry It

Tweet Hey, little sister, where have you gone? Oh — you went looking for something new to play on your Android. Well, PlayFirst (a TriplePoint client) has been showing the Google Play store a lot of love lately. Enough love, in fact, that they’ve just given the world an engaging new title: Wedding Dash. The [...]

Monkeys Hate Bloons and Also Monkeys: Bloons TD Battles

Tweet If you’ve spent as much time as I have defending things with towers, you’ve probably come to understand a few truisms of the genre. Kingdoms are best protected by someone yelling “Archers, ready;” we don’t want zombies on the lawn, orcs are very flammable, and most of all, monkeys hate bloons. Just hate ‘em [...]

Tweet You’ve had ample warning that this day was coming, so if you fail to escape the vaporizing blast in Gamenauts‘ Nuclear Outrun, you will get no sympathy from us. Gamenauts (a TriplePoint client) has been quite clear that they’d be unleashing atomic armageddon this week, and you’ve had more than enough time to start getting [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]

You Have 94 Seconds to Utterly Destroy Your Friends

Tweet 94 seconds is barely enough time to gather your thoughts and think of one suitable answer to a word-based trivia question, but 94 Seconds gives you precisely that long to come up with as many answers as you can. One category, one letter to start with, one stressful conundrum. Now, however, Scimob (a TriplePoint client) [...]

Apple Got Everybody Presents for the App Store’s Birthday

Tweet Five years old is such a precocious age. That’s how old the Apple App Store is this week (where does the time go?), and as indicated by various parenting guides, our wonderful little five-year-old platform is indeed a “creative and enthusiastic problem solver” with its myriad productivity apps, and it most certainly “abounds with [...]
