Hearthstone Makes More Money on Mobile Than Desktop

Blizzard’s hyper-popular card battling game Hearthstone is, shall we say, super-hyper-popular on mobile in particular.

According to a report from SuperData, *Hearthstone recently surpassed the desktop version of the game in revenue, and it’s been a huge plummet for the desktop version in exchange for revenue for the mobile version.

First Impressions of Five Nights at Freddy’s 4

Five Nights at Freddy’s creator Scott Cawthon has distributed the demo for the upcoming Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 to a couple of lucky YouTubers, who posted their initial reactions to the game on YouTube.

Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 is the scariest yet, both in quantity and variety of jump scares. There’s new gameplay elements with it taking place inside of your house, and it’s said to be more difficult than previous games with these guys taking quite a while to even get through the first night. Listening to the sound of the game is more important than ever, which again, really just sets you up for prime positioning for an animatronic to jump out at you.

Touch Arcade breaks down how Nintendo’s Amiibo cards may reflect its IAP-related practices with its upcoming free-to-play mobile games.

It’s reading tea leaves for sure, but, it this whole mystery card pack thing definitely casts a shadow of a doubt over the assumptions many were making regarding how friendly Nintendo was likely going to be with the IAP in their mobile offerings. I’d love to be wrong, but…

Threes! Free is Doing As Well as the Paid Version

The new free version of Threes! is doing very well, despite the paid version being out for more than a year.

This is really interesting to see, if only out of curiousity. But also, it’s fascinating to see the results of just how a game that existed for so long as a paid experience, and had drama with a free clone in 2048, is doing as a free game.

Card King: Dragon Wars Review – Pokemon Hearthstone

Gamezebo describes Card King: Dragon Wars as a cross between Pokemon and Hearthstone, which, as you might imagine, isn’t a bad combination at all.

Initially I was thrown off by the fact that my critters were not cards themselves, and that the only way to get more cards is to attack critters, but it didn’t take long to get a firm grasp on the gameplay mechanics and really fall into the flow of things.
