Disney Announces Star Wars: Galactic Defense, Continues to Milk Money Cow

The Star Wars franchise is very important to many people. Over the last decade or so, the story has become more cartoonish and kid appropriate, even though the original trilogy never dealt with situations that I would find inappropriate for younger audiences.

Nevertheless, as we all expected, Disney is not about to let their $4 billion investment go to waste, taking no time at all to pump out countless games from different game studios, and of course, Star Wars: Episode VII.

The newest game teased for a later-this-year release is Star Wars: Galactic Defense. The gameplay sounds much like the other Star Wars game that just released, Star Wars: Defender, where you are tasked with building and protecting towers. Sounds original.  (more…)

Humble Bundle 11 Brings Great Games for an Awesome Cause

A new Humble Bundle is available for mobile gamers, packed with great titles for low prices. Not only do you get great games, but when purchasing a bundle, you can select how much of your purchase price goes to the game’s developers, select charities, and a tip to the Humble Bundle service.

Included in this bundle are a few awesome titles, such as Thomas Was Alone, Cubemen, Cubemen 2, and Bridge Constructor Playground. While those games are fine and dandy, it is the titles you unlock by paying more than the average of $5.08 that are really awesome, which are Small World 2, Blackwell 1: Legacy, Blackwell 2: Unbound, Blackwell 3:Convergence, and more to follow.

If you happen to pay more than $11, however, you also unlock Surgeon Simulator and Anomaly Defenders. All of these games only for $11. Not bad at all, right?  (more…)

Star Wars: Commander Released to Google Play, Choose Your Side of the Force

In the new Star Wars: Commander game, published by Disney onto Google Play, you must choose to fight for either the Rebel Alliance or team with Darth Vader and the Empire. Even though you just enlisted, no matter what side you choose, you are made a commander of an entire army. To relate the gameplay to another popular title, it is much like Clash of Clans, but Star Wars themed.  (more…)

Beach Buggy Racing Hits Google Play, Optimized for Tegra-powered Devices

A new game from the makers of Beach Buggy Blitz hit Google Play today, a sequel of sorts, titled Beach Buggy Racing. The first game was geared more towards single player action, where players would race through sand dunes and volcanoes, hoping to collect enough coins and power-ups to upgrade characters and vehicles. In this new title, racing against other real-person opponents is the name of the game, bringing a completely new level of difficulty to the franchise. In essence, think of it like Mario Kart, where users can use power-ups against each other, ultimately trying to win the race to earn enough coins to continuously upgrade their car.
