Gameloft Launches Asphalt Overdrive, Ryan Gosling’s Favorite Racing Game

Gameloft has a new title on Google Play this week, one which should have Ryan Gosling’s character from Drive quite excited. The game is called Asphalt Overdrive, set right on the streets of “modern 80s” Southern California.

While the gameplay looks like  your typical Gameloft action-packed racing variety, the soundtrack is what gained my attention. Infused with fast-paced techno and house beats, you will race down the streets in brightly colored Lamborghinis and Ferraris, hoping to avoid cops in their souped-up muscle cars.  (more…)

Amazon Giving Away $135 Worth of Apps and Games Through Appstore

Every now and then, I am coaxed into downloading the Amazon Appstore, given that Amazon has a tendency to ball out and give away loads of free applications at any given moment. This week, they are handing out $135 worth of apps for completely free, and a few of the titles are absolutely worth the hassle of downloading their mobile marketplace.  (more…)

Humble Mobile Bundle 8 Arrives, Pay $5 or More and Get 6 Games Plus Premium Title EPOCH.2

Is it time for a new Humble Bundle, the popular pay-what-you-will game collection for charity, already? Apparently so. Mere weeks after the introduction of iteration 7, a new bundle of apps have appeared.

This time around, it features Tentacle Wars, Doodle God, Doodle Devil, and Wave Wave in the first tier, Little Big Adventure and Tower Madness 2 in the second, and EPOCH.2 in the third.  (more…)

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…)
