As if having to deliver toys to every child in the world over the course of a single night wasn't tough enough, Temple Run 2's largest update yet pits Santa Claus against a giant killer gorilla. That dude cannot catch a break.
Earlier this week the Prime Minister of Egypt was globally ridiculed for a Twitter update generated from within Beeline Interactive's popular Smurfs' Village game. Last year a Spanish politician made headlines when his "son" tweeted a game update from Doodle Jump.When public figures do it, it's mildly amusing, but…
Apparently, these photos were recently taken in Beijing. However, it isn't known who this couple is or what the hell is going on. Well, save for the part about running naked in public with an inflatable friend. We got that part.
Indiana Jones is not the only one solving annoying ancient puzzles in haunted caves, armed with a whip and dynamites, far from civilization. A setting like this is perfect for video games, so it is no surprise that many were influenced by the character, and the similarities in some cases are amazing.***
Vector's appearance as one of two new games in this week's Android chart has got me thinking about switching things up. There's just not enough variety in the traditional week-to-week top games rankings, so starting next week I'll be tracking top new games instead.
Just when you're ready to write off the Android gaming community's good taste, a game like ShockPanda's Cubes Vs. Spheres sneaks onto the charts, reminding us that there are discerning gamers on the platform.
I've been rather hard on Activision's mobile Wipeout game in the past, largely because it's based on a silly television obstacle course show and not my beloved series of PlayStation hovercar racing games. Today I'm just so happy to see a new game in the Android paid charts that I don't care. C'mere Wipeout, you big…
There was a time when mines and minecarts dominated video games. If a platformer or RPG didn't have a mine stage or a mine-themed dungeon, it wasn't a game. We felt like mines—where actual mining was eschewed in favor of racing around on minecarts—were the most natural things in the world, just as common as forests.
Oh look, it's Minecraft Pocket Edition at the top of the Android paid game charts, recovered from last week' brief bout of Ruzzle fever. There's not a single new game on the Android top paid charts, just the usual suspects shuffling about. Mosquitoes are starting to breed in it.
Another week, another 20 Android apps vying for attention on the top paid and free charts. All the usual suspects are present and accounted for—19 games that have been poking about the rankings for weeks, months and even years. There's only one fresh face here, though technically it's been rotting for ages.
The game that single-handedly justified the $350 I spent on Nintendo's Wii U console back in November came to iPad this week, spreading joy and laughter to Apple tablet gamers everywhere. And flames — can't forget the flames.
Once fastest-growing mobile game Angry Birds Space saw 50 million downloads in 35 days. It took Temple Run 2 two weeks.
Osbervant reader Jon has been playing Temple Run 2 on his Android device since it launched last week and didn't notice the error on this menu screen until last night. I didn't notice it until he pointed it out, so he wins.
It's all Temple Run, all the time in this week's Android charts, as the launch of the smash-hit sequel brings all three games in the franchise into the spotlight. I wonder if Imangi Studios' other games ever get jealous.
Now that Stephen Totilo has painstakingly researched the best way to control Temple Run 2 (now available on Android), it's time to get down to business. You know how to jump, dodge and slide, but do you know how to truly excel? The fine folks at Imangi Studios have shared three tips for racking up a score you'll be…
My defenses have crumbled. I can no longer resist Temple Run. Now I just need to make sure it doesn't destroy my hands.
It's the second week of our re-revamped iPhone game charts, and also the week after the release of Imangi's Temple Run 2, a free sequel that has folks so excited they're lining up to pay for Temple Run Brave.
Imagine Activision releasing the latest Call of Duty game without telling anyone it was coming. No developer diaries, no screenshot packages, no media events—just a quick heads up that it would be in stores tomorrow. Preposterous, right?
On one side we have the sequel to one of the most beloved mobile games in the world. On the other, an app mainly being downloaded due to controversy, morbid curiosity and irony. There's room for everyone in the weekly free iPad app charts!
