Kim Kardashian: Hollywood can often be found on the charts for popular mobile games. That is to say: it’s likely making a lot of money.
It’s not easy to make money running a video game website. In June 2015, popular mobile outlet TouchArcade said it was having cash problems and asked for help, and lots of people did—including mobile developers. But recently, following a mixed game review, one developer decided to pull their funding.
This is a good Tweet.
Right now, the top game on the App Store stars none other than Felix Kjellberg. I took the game for a spin, and here’s what I found.
Developers can’t always stop piracy. But they can try to have fun with it, at least.
Being in charge of an entire vault is not easy: you have to manage your population, fend off attackers, and you have to take the time to explore the wasteland. It’s a lot to juggle! But I’m here to help.
Getting out of the house and meeting new people is hard. For a long time, I let inertia limit me to the same neighborhood and daily routine—until I started playing a mobile, augmented-reality game from Google called Ingress. In just a few months, I’ve explored places I’d never seen before, met tons of new and…
Look, it’s one thing to hurt yourself playing Rock Band. But when you end up in medical journals for an injury sustained playing Candy Crush Saga, maybe it’s time to take a step back and assess your video gaming habits.
Nintendo is making mobile games. There will be Nintendo games on our phones and tablets. Wow. While the news is exciting, it's hard to push aside our worst free-to-play gaming fears. So let's embrace them. How bad can a mobile Nintendo get?
Nintendo will be making mobile games in the future, but we don't know much about their plans yet. TIME spoke with Satoru Iwata, Reggie Files-Aime, and Shigeru Miyamoto for a tiny bit of insight into their plans.
This morning Nintendo announced a partnership with Japanese company DeNA to produce games using Nintendo properties on mobile platforms. As the owner of mobile platform Mobage, DeNA is one of the most powerful names in mobile gaming, but the sort of games it’s known for won’t make traditional console gamers happy.
In other words, you ride a chopper, light a smoke, hold a gun to someone's head and get beat in the face with a pipe. All in first person!
Back in the 1980's and early 1990's, before internet streaming and before anime, Chinese youth had a different form of animated hero; they had The Black Cat Detective. And now, he will be reborn in a new mobile game.
A couple of weeks ago, I called up my 15-year-old sister. I wanted to ask her about a certain celebrity.
Good rivalries—the kind that get you really riled up—are hard to come by. We haven't very many good rivalries in a video game since Pokémon Red, in my opinion. But as much as people hate Gary Oak, he's got nothing your rival in Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.
Some devs like to keep it simple: no in-app purchases or microtransactions—hell, no app at all; no forcing you to rope your friends to play. Just, you know: player gives dev money, player gets entire game. That game is probably priced at more than 99 cents to boot.
Mobile games are great; they allow people to game pretty much everywhere. From gaming during the daily commute to gaming while waiting for the bus, mobile games can enrich people's daily lives. Sadly, for one man in China, the joys of playing mobile games had lead to an undeserved beating.
Let me break it down for you: 12 years of Catholic school. Powder-blue communion suit. Did the Stations of the Cross ON MY KNEES for multiple years. Childhood best friend was an altar boy. (He's fine. Nothing ever happened. Thanks for asking.) I say all this to establish that I know all about nuns. Nuns have paddled…
Word games? I love ‘em. Give me a jumble of letters and a grid and I'll go to town. One great thing about the advent of smartphones is how they've ushered in a major re-think of the word game DNA. So, last week, when a neighbor mentioned that a new iOS word game was spreading like wildfire through his workplace, I…
