Lonnie Plays Bouncy Bits

Thanks to Crossy Road (or possibly Minecraft, come to think of it), blocky games are all the rage now. This one is about bouncing through a colorful world, and Lonnie takes it for a spin. Watch to see how it plays (hint: it’s really hard).

Bears vs. Art Review: A Real Charmer

Art lovers have built a museum in a forest, and one of the forest’s citizens is not happy about the intrusion. In this game, you play as a bear who’s main goal is to thrash his way through the rooms of a museum, destroying all of the artwork he can along the way. From Gamezebo’s review:

These few cracks don’t affect the canvas as a whole, though. Bears vs. Art is a charming, polished, and lovable addition to Halfbrick’s oeuvre. If hung in a gallery, it would definitely be worthy of slamming with your body and tearing into beautiful bear confetti.

Spy_Watch Review: A Hands-Off Game

148Apps has leveled its reviewing gaze at Spy_Watch, a spy game that’s made to be played primarily on the Apple watch, but that also works on just an iPhone. The reviewer didn’t have a watch, but found it to be a very hands-off game, at least on iPhone. From the review:

The idea of not having much to do gameplay-wise was a concern when I first started up Spy_Watch, but I honestly don’t mind it now. It took all of a day before I started to imagine what my agent was going through while out on a mission, and not having to constantly check in has been rather nice. Being able to answer the agent’s questions by swiping the notifications to the left and tapping my choice is also great since it saves me the time of having to open the app.

Hakuoki Review: Refreshingly Unique

Hakuoki is a visual novel that costs a whopping $28 (you can buy chapters individually from the free version, or pony up the full price for the whole thing here). The question is, is it any good? Touch Arcade says yes. From their 4 out of 5 star review:

Romance is a lot more subtle in Eastern cultures than it is in Western culture, and with most of these games originating from Japan, it’s no surprise to see that reflected in these games regardless of the setting. Hakuoki is no different, and its Edo-era setting only reinforces those conservative cultural values. You play as a young woman named Chizuru Yukimura who has come to Kyoto in search of her missing father. You almost immediately get into some serious trouble that ends up with your falling in with the Shinsengumi, an elite group ostensibly dedicated to keeping the peace in Kyoto on behalf of the Shogun. Those who are up on their Japanese history know this was a real group, and Hakuokiuses the names and loose personalities of the real leaders for its main cast.

Dungeon of Madness Review: Maddening

If you enjoy dungeon crawlers and Pipe Mania in equal measure, then Dungeons of Madness is the game for you. In this crazily difficult adventure, your hero moves automatically, and it’s up to you to map out his path before he does something stupid. Pocket Gamer mostly enjoyed the challenge in their 6 out of 10 review.

Dungeon of Madness is a neat idea, but it needs to declog its pipes of frustrating elements.

Jurassic World Tips and Tricks

If you’re getting yourself pumped up to see the sure-to-be-a-blockbuster summer movie Jurassic World, you’re probably playing the iOS game. As luck would have it, Pocket Gamer has some tips and tricks to get you started. From their guide:

Don’t worry about placement when you first start building. You’ll have so little room until you can afford an expansion that you’ll just want to fit everything in as tightly as possible. You can always move it later.

Make sure you evenly level up at least one carnivore, herbivore, pterosaur, and amphibian to be competitive in battle.

Mobile Gaming is Growing, Growing, Growing

The mobile games market is huge, and it’s still expanding rapidly, especially in Asian territories. Digi-Capital believes mobile gaming’s software revenues may reach $45 billion by 2018.

The firm predicts that mobile gaming revenue will hit $29 billion this year, increase to $45 billion by 2018, as gaming software reaches $88 billion this year, and $110 billion in 2018. Do the math: that means that mobile gaming is possibly going to encompass a bigger portion of the gaming revenue pie in the coming years.

Terra Battle Getting a Console Release

Mistwalker’s Hironobu Sakaguchi is a bit surprised at the success of his battle / puzzle game Terra Battle, which has seen over two million downloads since its release. A recent interview with Japan’s Famitsu magazine revealed he’s working on a console release of the game. Though he’s not sure about all its features yet, it probably won’t be a port of the mobile title.

“I feel that it could be interesting if we even go with something using virtual reality, or it could also be fun if it can somehow connect to the next-generation in some way.”

Capcom Changing Sexualized Female Character Designs in Ghostbusters Puzzle Fighter

Capcom recently received some flack for certain augmentations performed on female Ghostbusters in its puzzle / battle game, Ghostbusters Puzzle Fighter. Not to say the enhancements are exclusive to the Ghostbusters; even androgynous characters like Gozer received an upgrade. Capcom will be scaling things down a bit in response to the criticism.

A representative from Capcom told Pocket Gamer, “we will be revising the character art with more modest Ghostbusting appropriate attire.”

Broken Age Act Two Review: Two Halves Make a Whole

Tim Schafer’s Broken Age is done, and adventure fans are having a good time in its surreal world. Gamezebo reviewer Jillian Werner gives the game high praise, saying the game’s colorful and whimsical setting carries it through its few flaws.

[W]hile we sometimes felt Act 2 was just a lightly modified Act 1, if you enjoyed the first half, there’s only more to love here. Unlike Shay, we don’t want to get off this ship. But, like Vella, we wouldn’t mind a few more explosions.
