User-Generated Content and Generating Contented Users

Tweet We at Frisky Mongoose like to play a lot of location-based games; it’s kind of our thing. There have been a lot of them over the years, as designers and developers have tried to gamify locations, or localize games, or whichever approach they feel like taking. While there are some notable exceptions, of course, [...]

Folks are Very Grabby with Grabbity

Tweet When a game is free, it’s tough to keep people away from it. Not that you’d want to keep people away from it, of course; I imagine that’s why you make it free in the first place. Nonetheless, there’s a game that folks decide to grab, and then there’s games people get especially grabby about, [...]

Not Sick of Pocket God Yet?

Tweet Last time we checked in with TriplePoint client Bolt Creative and the hapless Pygmies of Pocket God, the island residents had all caught dance fever. That’s the thing, though, about dance fever — not only is it extremely contagious, but the symptoms don’t stay benign for long. The disease has progressed to full-blown plague, and [...]

Free Game of the Day, 9/6/12: Grab Grabbity on iOS Today

Tweet Ask any child what a rabbit does, and they’ll no doubt mention two things: long ears and jumping. Despite not speaking with any children lately, I can take both of those facts for granted. Bunnies are simple little things, after all. But Grabbity, a new free-to-play platformer from TriplePoint clients Efecto Studios and Televisa Home Entertainment, [...]

Free Game of the Day, 9/4/12 — Dishonored: Rat Assassin

Tweet Dishonored: Rat Assassin is not an artistically interesting game. It barely innovates, and it looks like a pile of old beef stew. It’s App Store shovelware at its finest. That makes it even harder for me to admit that I like it. Quite a bit, in fact. Before I get into the “why” behind Rat Assassin, [...]

Tweet All right. Let’s start with the important part: Yes, that old lady on roller skates did just plow through every wall and floor in a three-story home in an effort to apprehend an apple thief. Never before has the persistence of the elderly been so elegantly and realistically captured as it is in Granny Smith, the [...]

Square Enix Wants to Keep Raking in Cash with Final Fantasy Dimensions

Tweet Square Enix has an interesting presence on the iOS App Store and Google Play. Their bread and butter, as a simple search will tell you, is re-releasing their nearly infinite catalog of old-school role-playing games like Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger. In fairness, they’ve also got a handful of original RPGs like Chaos Rings and a [...]

Free Game of the Day, 8/21/12 — The Simpsons: Tapped Out Returns with New Tricks, Old Gameplay

Tweet The Simpsons: Tapped Out opens in the right way — with The Simpsons. That is to say, the first thing you’ll see after booting up the game is a cartoon cut-scene that could be straight from the desk of Matt Groening. It’s almost like the game knows its only chance of winning over the fickle (but [...]

Capcom Resuscitates Mega Man… for a Social Game on iOS?

Tweet The Blue Bomber is back, but not in the way that most fans wanted. Mega Man Xover, which developer Capcom just announced, isn’t a continuation or re-imagining of the series’ classic 2D roots. Nor is it a revival of the recently cancelled 3DS exclusive, Mega Man Legends 3. Instead, it’s a social RPG on iOS. [...]
