It is official. Mojang posted on their own website that, "Yes, the deal is real. Mojang is being bought by Microsoft." This is probably great news for Microsoft as purchasing a giant such as Minecraft is bound to make them a lot more than they spent. One thing Microsoft isn't getting, however, is the brilliant mind of Minecraft creator, Notch.
It has been suggested by fans and shareholders for years. It has been rumored from many major media outlets. It has been teased by Nintendo brass themselves in January. And now it is official. It's not Mario, but Nintendo is bringing arguably their second largest franchise to iPad in 2014, and I for one could not be more excited.
If you read reactions to Peter Molyneux's latest game online, you'd probably try to steer clear. General reaction to Godus has been vaguely negative, attacking Molyneux's promises (for a change), as well as the slow pressure to buy in-app purchases. Apparently that's exactly what iOS users were hungry for, however, as the game currently has 1500 ratings and four and a half stars on the app store.
The announcement that the original Bioshock would be coming to iOS was met with mixed reaction - people either hated it or wondered why it wasn't coming to Vita (although the answer is obvious: nothing is coming to Vita). It's such an odd reveal, one that nobody asked for and that few people can get their head around. Hardcore, premium priced mobile games can work, XCOM proved that, but Bioshock isn't a turn-based strategy game, it's an action heavy shooter. The truth is, the team porting ...
Bioshock, the underwater shooter that had everybody on the internet using the phrase "would you kindly" at bemused non-gamers, is coming to iPhone and iPad. Yes, you read that correctly: one of the most notable console experiences of last generation is going to be entirely playable on your iOS device. It isn't even April.
The controversial albeit very popular game 'Weed Firm' has been taken down by Apple from the iTunes app store this week. In the game players take on the role of a drug dealer, tasked with growing and selling marijuana to people in their neighbourhood. The player must also avoid police and other rival gangs, with certain mini games including enticing a stripper to become a buyer fanning the flame of controversy even further.
Excited for the new Godzilla film but disappointed that there's not a video game tie-in to keep you going till the movie is released? Well, actually there is. Godzilla: Strike Zone is absolutely free, playable in web browsers and on smart phones, and it's actually surprisingly good.
If you own a PlayStation 4, a Vita or have downloaded the official PlayStation App on your smartphone, you'll have seen an update notification today. The PlayStation 4 has been updated to 1.7, and the other two platforms have been updated to allow for new features or to fix old ones.
RollerCoaster Tycoon for IOS has finally launched, and weeks of anticipation was destroyed by a horrendous pricing plan. While the game play is still reminiscent of the original tycoon classic, the unfortunate micro transactions makes it incredibly hard to have this game take up valuable space on the iPad.
If you’re a hardcore mobile phone gamer chances are you already know how frustrating it is to not be able to compete against of your friends just because they own an iPhone. While universal coding that will work on multiple platforms is still far from being a real thing, Google has made some serious efforts into trying to close the gap between platforms, their latest step in this matter being the release of a cross-platform game support between Android and iOS.
