Foursaken Media barely misses a beat on Bug Heroes 2. It takes 2011’s hit tower defense/dual-stick shooter/real-time strategy hybrid and pumps out a cool, fun, great-looking, and fast-paced sequel that ups the ante on just about everything (but sadly marginalizes the story of feuding bugs). Strategic nuances mix brilliantly here with arcade-style action, and the mission, skirmish, and endless modes alike all offer plenty of variety in the flow of play — though not in terms of scenery, as only three maps are included.
Disney has been a notable holdout from Ultraviolet, and today we find out why: The Mouse House has just launched its own iOS app that brings all of the Disney, Pixar and Marvel movie content you love into one place.
Mobile World Congress may be an international event, but second-place U.S. carrier is certainly making its presence known in Barcelona this week as it unveils two new initiatives for global travelers and stateside customers alike.
Is that all there is? Samsung's "Unpacked 5" event came and went at Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona on Monday, and the rumored Galaxy S5 hit the red carpet to what can only be described as a collective yawn from the tech media in attendance. Hey, don't feel bad, Sammy... you're just copying yet another phenomenon from Apple, whose last few iPhones have received a similarly chilly reception at launch. If history is any indication, buyers will likely be more kind...
Tengami, a new point-and-click adventure game from indie duo Nyamyam, takes place in a dreamlike version of mythical Japan. It’s all cherry blossom groves, abandoned pagodas, and gently rolling seas, painted in pastel pinks and blues and set to ethereal music. Still images are pretty enough, but Tengami is defined by the cues it takes from old pop-up storybooks: secret passages are hidden beneath paper flaps, and new areas spring into existence with each turn of the page.
Oquonie revels in obfuscation. On the surface, it’s a simple isometric arcade adventure, of the type enjoyed by gamers since the likes of Knight Lore and Head Over Heels on ancient 8-bit systems. Taking the role of a dopey-looking cartoon bipedal dinosaur in a suit, you amble about a maze-like office complex, bumping into photocopiers that bestow you with cards and simultaneously spew gibberish via a series of cryptic glyphs.
Mobile World Congress 2014 is now in full swing, and Nokia has just taken the wraps off its long-rumored Android smartphone that's actually an entire line of affordable devices with Microsoft services embedded inside.
After racking up more than half a million users in the U.S. and Canada, RealPlayer Cloud is ready to take on the world -- and is now expanding the reach of its cloud video solution globally to do just that.
Mobile device lovers have plenty to look forward to now that Mobile World Congress 2014 is officially underway in Barcelona, Spain. Samsung already jumped the gun Saturday by announcing a pair of new Gear smart watches that actually ditch Android for its own open-source Tizen OS, and is expected to unveil the Galaxy S5 later today. But before you get distracted by that, check out what else went down over the last few days...
Radiohead has long been known for its compelling collaborations with animators and video artists, which have resulted in cool music videos, performance projections, and graphics. Now the band has now extended its interest into the iOS world with PolyFauna, a strange sonic tour through a decidedly eccentric audiovisual realm. It’s not a game – there's nothing to win, nor a final destination – but rather a wacky piece of interactive art that is deceptively simple to navigate and oddly soothing, even for those who are not usually turned on by Radiohead’s expansive, moody musical stylings.
