King’s Bounty: Legions unleashes on Windows Phone

King’s Bounty: Legions is an exciting addition to the ever growing Windows phone marketplace for a several reasons. For one, it’s a serious strategy game and it’s free to play. More importantly, it supports cloud saves and cross-platform multiplayer via Facebook! You can start playing on Windows Phone and then pick up where you left off on Steam, Facebook, iOS, and Android. Unity support has really helped the cause of Windows phone as a platform as it helps some of the larger mobile games to find their footing when it comes to Windows Phone, even if we still get them later than other platforms.  King’s Bounty is a turn-based strategy series that started its life on Sega Genesis/Mega Drive long ago and continues to thrive on Steam.

Even Cats can play Fruit Ninja

It’s not just humans who like playing Fruit Ninja. Cats in particular seem to love the swipe-to-slash game. This compilation is brought to you, oddly enough, by Fabulous Mr. Pug. Next I think we need a competitive Fruit Ninjatournament to determine the very best Fruit Ninja cat player.P I wish my cat was into playing with my iPad. I tried to get her to take selfies of herself with a dedicated cat-selfie app, but she just gets nervous when I put things under her face and runs to hide under my bed. Actually she tends to get nervous about just about everything and goes to hide under my bed. Dammit, cat, where are my YouTube hits?!P via Tastefully Offensive & Tina  

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 heading to Windows Phone

Here’s some great news for gamers with Windows Phone devices since Gameloft has just announced that the Amazing Spider-Man 2 official game is headed to your phone “in April”. It will join a similar version for iOS and Android, finally giving some respite to Windows Phone user who get games later than their other counterparts. There’s no word if this will be an Xbox LIVE game though our hunch is ‘no’ as Gameloft has been foregoing certification lately (see Asphalt 8, Total Conquest and Minion Rush). Indeed, if Gameloft wants to get this game out in the same week as iOS and Android, it will probably need the freedom offered by it not being an Xbox LIVE title, much to the disappointment of many. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie hits theaters in on May 2nd, giving this game a few weeks breather ...

Flappy Bird featured in GTA IV

Some say it was just a matter of time, others quite taken a back when they saw this. But a new mod has brought the worlds of Flappy Bird and Grand Theft Auto together and the results are quite mind-blowing! YouTube user “taltigolt” published a video today highlighting the creation of modders “julionib” and “quechus13,” wherein the rules of Flappy Bird are applied to Grand Theft Auto IV. Watch the video and you’ll see GTA IV protagonist Niko Bellic wearing a Flappy Bird-style mask and flying through the world, earning points by hitting pedestrians on the head. Running into objects like telephone poles means you die, and your score starts back at zero. The original Flappy Bird–which was withdrawn from app stores worldwide by its creator this mo...

Angry Birds tribute to Gravity

Rovio Entertainment has published a mock-up movie poster for the film Gravity, and as you’d expect is pretty funny. Rovio’s tribute to Gravity states that the movie was directed by  “Alfonso Curedham,” starring “Spamdram Bullock” and “Pork Clooney.” The tag line “Don’t Let Go” is used to describe the movie, which portrays a frightened pig in a space helmet drifting off into space. You’ll will need to see the movie to get it.  An Angry Birds version of Gravity is not underway but Rovio is making an Angry Birds movie itself and has even assembled an all-star cast to bring the animated flick to theaters in 2016.   Source:  Eddie Makuch

Flappy Bird dev removes the popular app

In a bewildering series of events Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen has removed his hugely popular app, despite it raking in $50K a day in ad revenue. Why did he take it down? It’s a bit of a mystery, but it sounds like he didn’t like the fame and the throngs of criticism that came with it. “I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore,” he tweeted. “I can call ‘Flappy Bird’ is a success of mine. But it also ruins my simple life. So now I hate it,” he wrote in another tweet. Some hypothesise that the game is being removed due to legal issues as Flappy Bird’s assets bear a strong resemblance to those of Mario’s, but Nguyen is adamant that this ...

Is TripTrap The Next Angry Birds?

Angry Birds wasn’t the first “sling an object to break a structure” game. There were others well before it (specifically Crush The Castle) but Angry Birds took that and packaged it in neat graphics, cute characters, slight variations to gameplay and — the most important aspect, in my opinion — the perfect level of difficulty. That’s what TripTrap hopes to bring to the iPhone and iPad, all over again. Meet Jerry Ched The lead character of the game is a hungry mouse named Ched in search of some cheese. And he’ll probably seem familiar to you — the guy is clearly inspired by Jerry from the Tom & Jerry cartoons. In fact, the whole colour scheme and art style of the game will take you back to MGM’s classic cartoon series. But hey, that’s not a bad thing! Ched’s movements and facial expressi...

The Room 2 to unlock for iPhone

The Room 2 is going to be available for download on iPhone from today, i.e the 30th of January. The first version of the game had come out on the iPad which was launched sometime in December and was priced at  £2.99. And Android users will have to wait as a launch is scheduled “on or before 14th February”, said developer Fireproof Studios. The Room 2 is a sequel to the studio’s original The Room, which had won the Best British Game BAFTA at last year’s awards.   “Crafting a sequel to a bite-sized surprise hit is never easy,” Dan Whitehead said. “Fireproof has taken a conservative approach that avoids those pitfalls, but it hasn’t abandoned ambition in the process. I doubt the structural integrity of The Room would survive another extensi...
