KANO Review: Volcanic Fun

Do you enjoy bouncing on the tops of active volcanos? If so, you’ll love KANO, a game that lets you do just that. From 148Apps’s 4 out of 5 star review:

KANO is, quite simply, an extremely well-made game. The colors are vibrant, the style is impressive, and the sound effects have real impact. I mean actual impact. The noise you’ll hear when you manage to land a bounce dead-center quickly becomes a short-term goal for every single spin. It’s practically Pavlovian.

Exciting Things Ahead for Mobile Gaming

Touch Arcade’s Eli Hodapp has rung in on how the games press is finally facing the fact that big game publishers are treating mobile like a first-class platform. Of course, many publishers have been doing that for years now, but many of them are just now announcing it in earnings calls, which makes it “official.” Read the full article here, after enjoying this excerpt.

Expect to see far more names you recognize from the console world appearing on the App Store throughout 2015, or at least, some significant peacocking of future plans to take over mobile in more meaningful ways than dumb, often half broken companion apps and second screen experiences. With E3 less than a month away, we’ve been getting some very curious contact from huge studios and giant publishers you normally wouldn’t think would bother talking to us, which historically means one of two things: 1. Confused PR people (Never count this out). 2. A mobile project waiting in the wings.

SpongeBob’s Game Frenzy Review: Micro-Game Madness

The latest in a loooooooong line of SpongeBob games to hit the App Store, SpongeBob’s Game Frenzy is a WarioWare-like title that’s full of micro-games. From Gamezebo’s 4 out of 5 star review:

This is exactly the sort of game I could see myself playing with my friends, back when I was nine; sitting around the living room, watching everyone try to get the farthest without messing up. I would have had a blast with SpongeBob Game Frenzy, and as it stands, grown-up me had a bit of fun with the game too.

Just don’t expect me to start watching the show. I had the game muted in a matter of minutes. There’s no way I could make it through a full episode listening to these characters speak.

Tofu Hunter Review: Shallow Fun

Now 148Apps has rung in with its opinion on the game that has you hunt tofu instead of wildlife. Turns out they like it pretty well. From their 3.5 out of 5 star review:

There’s a fairly aggressive energy system in place that slows your progress, but really, Tofu Hunter isn’t a game to play for a long time anyhow. It’s a form of brief entertainment and stress relief, rather than anything to think too deeply about. For that reason it’s fine, if eventually forgettable.

Nitro Nation Online Review: Fast Lane to Addiction

If you like racing games and don’t mind a grind — albeit an addictive one — this is a game you’ll want to check out. From Pocket Gamer’s 7 out of 10 review:

Nitro Nation is designed to make you into a slobbering addict, and it does it very well. It’s almost dangerously simple to pick up and play, and that desire to shave seconds off your time becomes habit-forming in a few plays.

It’s not a racing game. It’s barely even a game at all, if you’re going to be really critical. But it still manages to bite-sized slices of fun and thrills, and sometimes that’s all you want.

Telltale’s Game of Thrones series continues with the fourth of six episodes coming soon. From Touch Arcade:

Telltale continues to deliver on all fronts (maybe, some would say, on too many fronts) and has just announced that it’s continuing its saga of the Forrester family with the Game of Thrones [$4.99] fourth episode, Sons of Winter, coming to mobile soon. I don’t want to give away what disasters will befall the characters in the fourth episode, but you can go here if you don’t mind spoilers. What I can tell you, and it’s not a spoiler since you can see it in the images below, there will be dragons!
