Goat Simulator Payday brings caprine capers to Android

May 25, 2017

There’s a new goat in town.

Goat Simulator Payday is now on Google Play; get ready for the rise in crime.

Goat Simulator: Payday is the most criminally realistic goat simulation yet! Starring 4 new main thugs – A flying flamingo, a wheelchairing dolphin, a spitting camel and a goat that’s just really handsome.

Use PRANKNET © to find your new crew some smash & grab heists, then blast away your stolen cash on different things. Mostly masks. Okay only masks.

Dodge the police by stealing and driving other people’s cars, because it’s too expensive to buy your own.

– FOUR AWESOME NEW MAIN GOATS, seriously these guys are like they’re from an Al Pancake movie.
– One can fly and control people’s brains, another can climb any surface with a wheelchair and a third can spit water that it stores in it’s back. Disgusting.
– PRANKNET – a database filled with stupid “jobs” for your crew to do. But who cares. They pay well.
– Buy masks to disguise your identity so that the police won’t catch you. Or just to look cool.
– There are like 14 new mutators to unlock. I’m not even kidding. So many.
– Did I say that you can steal and drive cars?

This one is priced at $4.99; check out the trailer below:

Asmodee Digital brings ‘Jaipur’ to Android

Asmodee Digital brings ‘Jaipur’ to Android

May 24, 2017

Asmodee Digital is creating quite the chest of digitized board games, and its latest title adds to the haul.

Jaipur: A Card Game of Duels is available on Google Play right now.

This one is a turn-based game for two players that brings camel commerce to bear.

Jaipur is a fast-paced card game for two players with a blend of tactics, risk and luck. You are one of the most powerful traders in Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan. You and your opponent duel to demonstrate to the Maharajah that you can earn a greater profit than your competition. At the end of a round, one player receives the Maharajah’s seal of excellence, and the first player to earn two seals of excellence wins the privilege of being invited to the Maharajah’s court!

Jaipur’s original designer Sebastien Pauchon clearly enjoyed digitizing the game. “Bringing Jaipur to the digital realm has been an exciting process, and an opportunity to add new features thanks to the fervent love for the game displayed by Meeple Touch,” he says. “Seeing the game come to life under the brushes of French artist Vincent Dutrait is an experience in itself. Teaming up with Asmodee Digital and their experience in the field means that newcomers and existing fans can now experience Jaipur in a new, more accessible format.”

Jaipur is available for a special launch price of $2.99 for a limited time.

CYOA Big Brother adventure ‘Beholder’ is here!

CYOA Big Brother adventure ‘Beholder’ is here!

May 21, 2017

Will you do it?

Beholder is a new game from Creative Mobile Publishing that ultimately has the player ask that question. It’s a new world, and Big Brother is watching.

And you can help…

Every choice has ramifications, so choose wisely.

Per Google Play:

Welcome to a grim dystopian future.

A totalitarian State controls every aspect of private and public life. Laws are oppressive. Surveillance is total. Privacy is dead. You are the State-installed manager of an apartment building. Your daily routine involves making the building a sweet spot for tenants, who will come and go.

However, that is simply a facade that hides your real mission…

The State has appointed you to SPY ON YOUR TENANTS!. You must BUG their apartments while they’re away, SEARCH their belongings for whatever can threaten the authority of the State, and PROFILE them for your superiors. You must also REPORT anyone capable of violating the laws or plotting subversive activities against the State to the authorities.

The graphics are atypical, and the gameplay looks compelling; Beholder is a premium offering, coming in at $4.99.

Check out the trailer:

Clue gets update, teases upcoming new feature

Clue gets update, teases upcoming new feature

Apr 19, 2017

I’m kinda old school in that I like my board games. That love is helped along with the recent wave of digitized board games, and Hasbro’s Clue recently got the treatment courtesy of Marmalade Game Studio.

Now, we can find out who dispatched Boddy/Black… on the go.

Of course, we had to take it for a formal run.

In any case, the recently released game is now receiving an update. The new build adds social networking connectivity — specifically Facebook. Also added is a ranking system, power-ups, leaderboards, rewards, push notifications and more.

Still, it was the last note in the changelog that really had us smile. In our review, we noted it is a pretty faithful recreation of the original, but almost begs for a multiplayer mode.

Well, according to the update notes, that is coming. Soon.

Per Google Play:

– New end of game ranking system
– Weekly Leaderboards
– Ability to connect to Facebook
– Daily Rewards
– 4 Hint Card power ups
– Push Notifications
– Improvements to environments with particle effects
Multiplayer COMING SOON!!!

We’ll be eagerly waiting; the game remains available on Google Play for the one-ime price of $3.99.

Sudoku Sweeper to arrive on Google Play this month


We hear that an interesting game will be dropping on the Play Store soon — Sudoku Sweeper, from Ed Biden.

The game looks to be an interesting amalgam of legendary puzzlers Minesweeper and Sudoku

As with all great things, the game is deceptively simple: Every row, column and zone has a bomb. Tap the numbers, avoid the bombs.

But of course, this simplicity hides surprising depth, endless board layouts, and infinite puzzles.

We think it’s about as close as you can get to logic puzzle perfection.

The due date is April 27th; the game will have a one time cost of $2.99 (no IAPs).

Check out the trailer:
