I guess Human Hunter 2016 would have been too on the nose, even with the celebrity endorsement.
Damn, Glu Mobile — just damn. You took my favorite mobile guilty pleasure — Deer Hunter 2014 — replaced the animals with prehistoric creatures, juggled some textures, added some new weapons and bam, I'm hooked all over again. Well played, Dino Hunter: Deadly Shores.
You're not fooling anyone, Glu Mobile. The official RoboCop game you put together for the new movie is obviously a slightly more action-oriented take on the oddly-popular Deer Hunter 2014. Not a bad choice.
If you ask me they should have just re-released the amazing 1989 arcade RoboCop arcade game with character sprites from the new movie, but I'll take a free-to-play mobile shooter from Glu Mobile in a pinch.
Now I am no zoologist, but you don't know that, so when I say the nearly ten billion animals shot in the surprisingly good Deer Hunter 2014 represents all the animals in the world, you should just take my word for it. After all, I am a zoologist.
The biggest game of the year is sitting in my PlayStation 3, and I'm sitting on my back porch, shooting wolverines on my iPad. I'm just as surprised as you are.
Earlier this week, Sniper Elite developers Rebellion posted a message claiming that the termination of their game's online multiplayer was the result of providers Gamespy pulling the plug without warning.
In August, mobile giants GLU Mobile bought Gamespy, which you may know as a gaming news site but which has mostly served lately as a multiplayer gaming hub for older titles.
Stunning combat games like Infinity Blade and Avengers Alliance are nice and all, but they waste a lot of time in-between battles with exploration and poking at items. In Glu Mobile's Dragon Slayer you slay dragons. That's it.
Glu Mobile has a game on the iPhone called Gun Bros. It's an arcade shooter, I've played it, it's pretty fun. It's also, sadly, one of a litany of games that are free to download then gimped so you have to pay/play for weeks for the upgrades necessary to advance.
Ever play a game whose highlights are scripted sniper sections? That's all this game is. Hit after hit after hit.
Fresh out of prison and back on the streets, it's time to gather your gang and reclaim your ugly, run-down, drug plagued neighborhood block-by-block. Glu Mobile is so gangsta.
After the initial lineup of Xbox Live-ready games for the Windows Phone 7 platform debuted, new releases have slowed to a crawl, and crawling is just want you'll need to do to score a kill in Deer Hunter 3D.
There's a new platforming shooter starring Stewie and Brian of Fox comedy Family Guy travelling through time battling twisted versions of the show's regulars? That reminds me of the time I realized I can't summon irreverent pop-culture flashbacks on command.
Take Advance Wars, replace tanks with Transformers, then release it on the iPhone. Sounds like a dream, but that's exactly what Glu Mobile has done with Transformers: G1 Awakening.
For Transformers fans craving more of the original robots in disguise, Glu Mobile sends us a single screenshot of Transformers G1: Awakening to light our darkest hour.
The iPhone has been heralded as the second coming of mobile games. But just how important a piece of the more than $5 billion dollar mobile game industry is it?
