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.
It has just been a little less then ten years since the latest RollerCoaster Tycoon launched, and almost fifteen years since the launch of the original classic. And this spring, a new game in the franchise is heading to iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad. According to Touch Arcade, the game will retail for 2.99 USD and will include 20 pre-built coasters, while also allowing players to share their coaster designs in an online community.
Who's ready for some CRAAAAAAAZZZZY money? Are ya ready?! HERE WE GO. Crazy Taxi was a must-have on Dreamcast, and although it didn't age especially gracefully, mostly because other titles pushed the genre so much further, it still managed to get a decent and seemingly popular re-release a couple of years ago. Well, SEGA aren't done with the franchise, and have today announced a brand new Crazy Taxi title for mobile devices.
Surprise, surprise. Flappy Bird, the cultural phenomenon that came and went in just a few short weeks, might be making its way back to the app store. Its creator had originally said he couldn't handle the sudden fame, although it was estimated that he was racking in tens of thousands of dollars in ad revenue every day. Now, after creating an artificial demand for his game, he's let the dust settle and is considering bringing it back in the near future.
There aren't many games that let you build up amazing rollercoaster rides that end with the track suddenly dropping out and the death of thousands of your guests. That's what makes Rollercoaster Tycoon such an important franchise. Because if you don't terrorize innocent avatars, who on earth will? It's been a while since the last outing was released - almost 10 years - so fans may be happy to learn that Atari are teasing a new entry in the series.
Fancy a new phone but can't bring yourself to purchase something that no longer has access to Flappy Bird? If that describes you - and if you have $100,000 or so to spare - you can now hit eBay, where a variety of friendly people are trying to offload their iPhone and Android devices at huge prices.
Flappy Bird has been something of a flash in the pan. It came from nowhere, got very popular and has now been taken down from the app store by its creator, Dong Nguyen
It's been an awfully long time since the first episode of The Wolf Among Us was released, and that' s not good for episodic content. I don't remember which decisions I've made or who the main characters are, but I do remember two things: telling Bufkin to 'eff' off, and that final shocking twist in the closing moments of the game. Well, despite the gap, Telltale today released a new trailer for The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2, and that it'll be available to download next week.
A Japanese newspaper reckons Nintendo have been thinking up various ways of bringing their IP to mobile devices (or rather, bringing people who use mobile devices to their consoles). Not only has this been going on for the last few months, but they're about to announce exactly what these plans are.
