Sphero BB-8 Star Wars Droid Coming Friday? App Shows Up Momentarily on The App Store

For a few moments, the BB-8 app that controls the new toy from Sphero showed up on the App Store. But now it’s gone. Another mistake by a developer, forgetting to set the go live date I’d guess.

But it does give us a glimpse of the actual BB-8 developed by Sphero. It’s rumored that the toy, that comes in two versions, a remote control version and and app-enabled version, will appear on store shelves this Friday (Force Friday). We’ll see.

This will be the must have gift for your Star Wars fans this year. So grab one early if you want it. And let me know if you need my address.

First Trailer for “Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes” from EA Released – shows it’s more than just a CCG

Back at E3, EA teased a collectible card game set in the Star Wars galaxy, but showed just a couple title and character stills. Touch Arcade brings us the first trailer and it shows that it’s more than just a CCG, though we know no further details — the action sequences could be just canned fight scenes. Hopefully we’ll know more soon. Take a look.

Pac-Man 256 Video Preview Shows Off the Game in Detail

Touch Arcade’s extensive stream of the upcoming Pac-Man 256 is a bit long, but packed full of yellow Pac-Man goodness.

My first impression of this game was how closely the game adhere’s to the original Pac Man visually and mechanically. Now sure there are some big time upgrades and the screen constantly scrolls rather than a fixed screen. Those differences don’t really detract from the old school 8 bit style still strongly popping out of this game. My first few seconds in the app were interupted with the original chiptuney melody Pac Man is famous for and from that point it has all been just nostalgia and great gameplay.

First Trailer for The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land

The first trailer for The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land is out now. No Man’s Land is a strategy game that pits you against the shambling hordes of the undead (you were expecting to go up against puppies and kittens, maybe?).

The gameplay trailer has a very intense Daryl setting the very dramatic scene of a horrible world with no warm showers and no fast food joints; no wonder many just gave up and took the easy way out. The actual gameplay looks fun but predictable, with plenty of face-smashing and gut-shooting. Overall, it looks like a typical turn-based game, but I think its claim to glory will be how the zombie hordes can overwhelm your people, which will demand a different strategic tempo.

Gameloft Announces Order & Chaos II: Redemption

A sequel is on the way for Gameloft’s hit MMORPG. There’s not much info at this point beyond a teaser trailer and some story info, but it’s intriguing stuff nonetheless.

The destruction of the Primal Heart led to a cataclysmic event that destroyed the world, with the heroes dying one after the other. Evil had won and retreated temporarily. 600 years after these events, the world once again flourished and heroes began to be reborn into this new world – in their quest to save it from the coming evil and redeem themselves.

First Look: Pac-Man 256 from Crossy Road Dev Hipster Whale

We finally get to see some gameplay footage from the upcoming Pac-Man 256 game from Crossy Road developer Hipster Whale. It looks just about as good as we had hoped – an infinite Pac-Man type board, blocky graphics, and well, it looks like fun.

We’ll hold judgement until the game is released — but fingers are crossed. This should be out soon. Bandai Namco have a way… Well let’s just say we are hoping that Hipster Whale get to do things their way with this one.

Monsters Ate My Metropolis Announced

If you loved Monsters Ate My Condo as much as we did, you’re going to be jazzed to hear that Adult Swim has announced a sequel called Monsters Ate My Metropolis. Only instead of a match-three game, it’s a card battler. From Pocket Gamer:

The Monsters have progressed from eating condos to leveling entire cities, and to do so, you build a deck of powerful attacks, buffs, and other abilities. Each monster has unique perks as well, ranging from increased damage to earning more tokens.

Spaceship Roguelike Battlestation: Harbinger Coming in August

Roguelike games are all about random elements, and what’s more random than the vacuum of space? All those cosmic rays and floaty things to deal with…

You’ll be engaging in space combat, clearing sectors, completing objectives, and discovering worlds. It all seems fascinating and I’m curious to go hands-on with it. Battlestation: Harbinger will release for $3.99 without IAP on August 13th.

Star Wars Uprising Preview: “So far, so good”

Thanks to its soft launch in New Zealand, Gamzebo has gotten their hands on Star Wars Uprising, the upcoming Star Wars RPG from Kabam. So far, they like it. From the preview:

As we’d guessed previously, Star Wars Uprising is a Diablo-lite in a familiar universe. Players will control their hero through taps and swipes as they clear dungeon after dungeon planet after planet ofmonsters and villains droids and stormtroopers. The combat is a very by-the-numbers affair, but it still manages to be a good time. You’ll have four different moves at your disposal at any time, and perfecting the experience means knowing which skill to use when. For example: when a stormtrooper gets ready to discharge a wide arc of laser fire, I’ll double-tap to dodge/roll to the side, get close enough to knock them back and dizzy them, and then pull back on my hero to unleash a shotgun-style blast of hot laser death.

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.
