Can you use the word cynical to describe the normally nutty editorial staff? Maybe. We did create the “Guess When the Politician Gets Indicted Office Pool” promotion which invites folks to guess the month when Chris Christie, Andrew Cuomo, Pat Quinn, Scott Walker and Francis J. Underwood get indicted. Thirty six hours after we soft launched it, a Texas grand jury indicted Texas Governor Rick Perry. (more…)
FDG Entertainment released Tower Boxing, a vertical endless runner style game for free on both the iOS and Google Play/Android platform this week. You play a boxer who punches buildings from either the left or right sides of the structure by tapping the screen. You collect coins as you avoid the cement deck outcropping which crunches the boxer and terminates the session. The FDG team used a pixelated visual style and Tower Boxing is deceptively difficult which may make it addicting. (more…)
Indie game developer Steven DeArmond sent us this video promoting a few of his endless style running games for iOS and . The first called Monster Zombie Pig Of Doom game find a little black stick figure running away from a giant rolling zombie pig. Its hard but is it addicting? Who knows? Every game developer thinks their games are addicting. There’s another game called Daredevil but its unclear if the player can access as an IAP purchase or if the player hits a certain score in the first game. Its extremely confusing. The games are free with IAP and ads. (more…)

NY based Large Animal Games released Color Zen, another great puzzle game for the iOS and Android platforms back in June but we missed the launch thanks to an alien abduction. :O)
Large Animal Games uses three key ingredients in Color Zen: bright colors, geometric shapes and relaxing ambient music. You merge like colors together by drag them into each to flood the screen with that color. The Color Zen player aims to flood the screen with the border color. The game plays brilliantly. The game doesn’t keep score which helps with the relaxation factor. Puzzle lovers will enjoy Color Zen.
Color Zen costs $0.99 and you can buy different color packs at various price points.
The blobs are rising and they are quite colorful. An indie game studio called Robot Invader created Rise of the Blobs, a free 3D puzzle game playable on iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. Robot Invaders decided to use the free to play business model for Rise of the Blobs with in app purchases.
The player must drop different colored fruit onto the same colored blobs. Then you explode the blog with the fruit by tapping it which also causes the same colored blobs directly next to the blob to burst. You rotate the blobs around the column to hit the highest row of blobs before they reach the column’s top. Players of Rise of the Blobs can earn different power-ups like fruit hammers and coconut bombs.
Rise of the Blobs offers a fun unique game experience even with the in app purchases.
