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 [...]

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. [...]

I Hope My Towers Float in Pirate Legends

Tweet Nobody is disputing the almighty tower as an excellent defensive fortification. From bloons to barbarians, if it’s making a beeline for your home base, a well-placed and well-armed tower can take care of it. What about enemies attacking from the water, though? It seems like a solid foundation is kind of crucial to the [...]

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 [...]

Now it’s here — the new update for Kingdom Rush Frontiers, entitled “Rising Tides,” is available on the App Store today, so it’s too late to get to higher ground. You’re just going to have to wade through the “green-fin man-hunters and [...]

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 [...]

Rushing Waters: New Kingdom Rush Frontiers Content Inbound

Tweet When the sequel to possibly our favorite tower defense game came out last month, we were understandably excited. Kingdom Rush Frontiers represented a fresh dose of everything we loved in the title, including new levels, new enemies, and new heroes to fight them off, complete with the usual mayhem and humor that Ironhide Game Studio [...]

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 [...]

Award Winning Sky Gamblers Now Gambling on Cold War Outcome

Tweet You never walk away from the table when you’re on a winning streak — not even if that table is up in the sky somehow. You may recall the last time we discussed Sky Gamblers from Atypical Games (a TriplePoint client), they were definitely enjoying a win: Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders had just won the prestigious [...]

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 [...]
