Spider-Man and crew influence MARVEL Future Fight

Spider-Man and crew influence MARVEL Future Fight

Jul 6, 2017

Not too many Marvel superheroes pass by MARVEL Future Fight without getting pulled in, and iconic Web Slinger is no exception.

Netmarble’s hero-infused game is getting content and characters based upon the major motion picture Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is in theaters now.

Off the bat, we get two new uniforms and six new super-villains. There is also a special quest and a new quest pack.

And then… about those villains. Here’s the list:

● Sandman – A classic Spider-Man antagonist with the ability to transform himself into sand-like forms that he can manipulate and shape at will.

● Lizard – When he lost his right arm in an accident, Dr. Curt Connors experimented with reptilian limb generation. The serum he developed turned him into a beastly, lizard-like creature.

● Kraven the Hunter – As one of the world’s greatest hunters, he has honed his years of training and experience towards one goal: to hunt Spider-Man, the ultimate prey!

● Rhino – With a virtually impenetrable, rhinoceros-like armor bonded to his body, Rhino uses his massive strength and speed against his most troublesome adversary – Spider-Man!

● Mysterio – A Hollywood stunt man and special effects wizard turned Super Villain, who uses his holographic costume and deceptive illusions to deceive and antagonize Spider-Man.

● Vulture – With the help of a special suit with large wings, the Vulture possesses augmented strength and speed that allows him to take to the air at dizzying speeds to battle his arachnoid arch-nemesis.

This update is definitely sounds intriguing…

TacticalPad Pro adds features via update

Jul 5, 2017

I have had the privilege to coach soccer professionally for some time now, and one of my favorite tools is TacticalPad. It’s a full-featured utility that helps soccer coaches to plan and visualize training sessions.

Now, this is invaluable when it comes to coaching kids; “showing” versus “telling” is the way to go for sure.

In any case, this application just received an update.

The new build adds a host of features and tweaks, including a new layout option, help, options, settings, poses and 3D text.

The new build also adds on a new language: French.

We definitely came to respect TacticalPad a great deal wehn we took it for a formal spin.

TacticalPad comes into flavors — free and more full featured premium version — on Google Play.

Asmodee’s ‘Onirim’ gets a big update

Asmodee’s ‘Onirim’ gets a big update

Jul 5, 2017

We are huge fans of Asmodee Digital; there’s something so cool about bringing traditional board games to digital on life. Onirim – Solitaire Card Game is one of these, and it’s getting an update as we speak.

So this update brings the Crossroads and Dead Ends expansion. It adds 16 new cards and more new content. Online leaderboards also make an appearance.

Adding 16 new cards to the deck, the Crossroads and Dead Ends expansion includes four Crossroads (Location cards) that can be played as any color. A Crossroad card can be played as the first, second, or third card of a series of the same color, in order to get a Door card from the deck; the color of the two other Location cards of the series determine the color of the Door the player unlocks. When drawing a Door card, players can also discard the Key Crossroad card to get the drawn Door card.

Where Crossroads open new possibilities, Dead Ends (Location cards) present new challenges. A Dead End card can never be played on the table, nor discarded “one by one.” Players must keep Dead Ends in-hand until the end of the game, unless they discard the whole hand at once (as part of a Nightmare). In the case of Nightmares, if the chosen penalty is to reveal the top 5 cards of the deck, then the Dead End cards are considered Dream cards; they are not discarded, but are put into the Limbo pile. Triggering an Escape can also discard Dead Ends; the player must discard their hand and draw five new cards

According to the presser, the expansion is $0.99.

• Fixed an issue causing a short hang between selecting Bots before a fight.
• Fixed a case where an Arena win would count incorrectly as a loss.
• Bug fixes, localization updates, and optimizations.

Hill Climb Racing 2 adds new vehicle and personalizations

Hill Climb Racing 2 adds new vehicle and personalizations

Jul 3, 2017

Fingersoft’s Hill Climb Racing 2 is quite the country caper, and quite proud of it. It’s all about Newton Bill racing crazy vehicles in crazy environments. Minimal controls, but a lot of action, especially of the airborne kind. It boils down to insane physics, and figuring out how to manipulate it for bragging rights.

The game is getting an update right now, and this one tacks on a few more features to an arguably chock-full game.

Version 1.6.1 brings a new vehicle: a monowheel bike; this one requires players to reach Platinum Level II to unlock. Additionally, the new build teases some additions in the Looks Customization department.

The changelog also notes a specific bug fix.

We certainly enjoyed this game when we took it for a spin; there is something to be said for sequels that are able to build on popular titles.

Hill Climb Racing 2 remains free (with in-app purchases) on Google Play.
