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…)
Save the kitties from the fire! Save the kitties from the fire! Emma Jones, the fire fighting star of the new video game Jones on Fire does just that, in theory, if you can help her outrun the flames. Colorado based Glass Bottom Games released Jones on Fire, a run and jump platform game on iOS and the Android platforms priced at $1.99.
Jones on Fire combines retro pix elated graphics with a run and jump game mechanic to make a unique game experience. You play the game as Emma Jones, a female firefighter with spunk and moxy who saves kitties and jumps over burning logs until you get to the firehouse, all while the raging fire threatens to engulf you from behind if you stumble or trip. You jump over obstacles by tapping the left side of the screen and slide under objects by tapping the right side of the screen. You get three lives to make it through each hazard, their word for the levels.
Who would enjoy Jones on Fire? Anyone who likes a video game that utilizes a very unique retro visual style with a sprinting & vaulting escaping mechanic and it helps if you like kitties.
Here’s Space Keeper, a unique new action arcade Android game from CodaWeb Interactive UG.
The game takes place in the year 2312 where all natural resources have dried up. You have to find and collect elements in outer space to create new sources of energy. The game mechanic employs lots of physics.
Obstacles include explosive particles, asteroids and aliens. You will need logic, speed and dexterity to succeed.
Sometimes game developers use programming languages like java or c++ and sometimes they use clay. What? Clay? As in the soft malleable stuff used to make ceramics? Yes that clay. Doesn’t the clay get stuck in the device? How many game developers use clay to create their games? One as far we know. A company called Fat Pebble just released Clay Jam, an extremely unique free puzzle arcade game made entirely of clay although we are sure they had to use some programming language to make the game work on mobile devices.
The game takes place in a land named Clay Jam where monsters live happily ever after until some characters named the Bully Beasts destroyed Clay Jam which lay dormant for hundreds of years. A stranger shows up vowing to rebuild the land but he needs clay for their task. He dispatched a blue pebble to collect and recover clay. You guide the pebble down the hill by drawing groves in the clay land towards the little creatures you must squash for their clay. You must flick the pebble at the Bully Beast to send him flying to earn more points.
Clay Jam offers one of the most unique game play experiences we have seen in a number of years. Consumers can play Clay Jam on either their IPhone, IPads or Android devices.
