  • As one of the world’s leading tech creators, innovation is part of Apple’s goals! New devices get released every year and they are always better and sleeker-looking than previous models. This month, we witnessed the launch of the iPhone X; with it came the iOS 11. This operating system is meant to provide several advantages to both users and app developers. However, it has proved to be the end for some!

    One of these is Dong Nguyen’s Flappy Bird! With the new operating system installed, it will now not be possible to play the game. Pretty sad indeed since this tap-to-fly app was one of the world’s most talked about and played game back in the days! The developer made the following announcement of the title’s official Facebook page: “The original Flappy Bird app is no longer playable on newer iOS from today with the release of iOS 11. :) Thank you very much for your playing and supports in the last 4 years.”

    The above statement also made it clear that Dong Nguyen was no longer willing to update the app’s features to eventually keep it going. However, fans can rest assured as they will still be able to play their favourite game as long as they do not update their devices. That’s right, by simply keeping away from the iOS 11 folks will still get to use Flappy Bird on devices other than the iPhone X!

    On the other hand, remember that Mr. Nguyen is still developing games and apart from his bird-themed hit, he still has several of his creations that are out there on the iOS and Android stores. For now, feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section seen underneath this post and stay tuned for fresh news from the industry’s top developers!

In this piece, we will talk about one of the latest apps announced, The Sidekicks! The latter is presently being refined, and it will soon be seen on major download stores.

    If you recall playing Trine, you will certainly have a better idea of what’s on the way! The forthcoming app is also being referred to as a 3-hero platformer which already sounds pretty cool if you ask me! From the little details that have been revealed till date, we can eventually confirm that three heroes will be playable in-game. Bellie G, Zeronita, and Noobert are the names that you might want to remember!

    The Sidekicks

    Each of the above-mentioned characters will have their own superpowers, and players will be free to choose which one they want to guide across the thirty hand-crafted levels that will be on offer. We also know that a lot of efforts have been put in to include “references to classic video games and movies.” We simply cannot wait to test it out and figure out if the developers have a winner here or not!

  • When it first came up in 2013, it caused an uproar among platform game lovers across the globe. It was eventually nominated three times at the BAFTA and won the Performance Award (Danny Wallace as Narrator). It also got selected among the App Store Best of 2014! The title we refer to is none other than Mike Bithell’s most amazing creation till date and it’s now better than it has ever been.

    You must have guessed it, Thomas Was Alone is the app that will get highlighted here today; its update is also a topic that we will be looking into. With the release of iOS 11 and the various advantages that game along, it was important to improve things. An update was hence delivered and the platformer eventually became compatible with Apple’s latest operating system.

    Also note that version 2.1 of this award-winning game is still meant to get several performance updates. These will further improve the experience and more details will be revealed by Bossa Studios in due time. For now, it might help to highlight the fact that this immersive journey comes with 100 levels. What’s on offer is a minimalist gameplay about friendship and jumping; one that’s totally worth a try!

    When it comes to its compatibility, do note that the app will work smoothly on any iOS smartphone or tablet that has iOS 8 or later installed. Once downloaded, one will soon realise that Thomas Was Alone is nothing like the thousands of platform games that can be found out there. Its particularities got it millions of downloads and for $4.99, you can also bag yourself this fun app! Its official trailer will give you a glimpse of the action that can be seen in-game. Enjoy!

  • It’s been a while since we last heard about Super Mario Run, but rest assured as a new update is on the way! Following the release of iOS 11, things have been moving and the developers at Nintendo have been working on several perks for the platformer.

This is indeed looking pretty good and it will be wise to stay tuned if you are a fan!

  • Vintage is the new cool within the mobile game industry and developers are indeed doing their best to meet market needs. Daily releases seem to always include pixelated, arcade-style titles, and these apps have proved to be pretty successful to date. 2D action, heroic characters, gloomy environments, demonic bosses, these all seem to excite players a lot, and following the recent announcements, they are likely to be served!

    The next game of the kind is going to be Ghoulboy! From the title, you can certainly start guessing what this will be all about. From the little details that we have managed to find online, we can indeed confirm that it will be a side-scrolling platformer with several interesting features that will eventually captivate players. However, its most distinctive aspect will surely have to be its 2D graphics…

    Ghoulboy

    That’s right, pixels will be combined with other cool retro elements and the result will certainly be something that will meet the needs of mobile gamers. Once in-game, users will get to control a heroic character who will often be seen throwing a spear to create additional platforms. To boot, puzzle and combat elements will further enhance the experience. You wouldn’t want to miss out on it!

     

    Do note that apart from the fact that it will be an iPhone and iPad app, little details have been revealed so far. However, we do have a trailer that can give fans of the genre a good idea of what to expect. Check it out below and stay tuned for the release date and even more thrilling footage.

  • In a move to extend the lifespan on their apps, mobile game developers are presently coming up with various strategies. However, the one that seems to work out best is the delivery of regular updates or expansions. This brings in new content and eventually prevents players from getting bored over time. RareSloth is a developer who seems to have mastered the arts of updating its apps, and its latest work has indeed been welcomed!

    You must have guessed it, we are actually referring to the latest patch delivered for King Rabbit, and if you are a player, you will certainly confirm the joy of finding a whole bunch of new levels in-game! Do note that three collections have already been released for the platformer and the latest just does not seem to be the last. It would indeed not be wise to stop when things are going so well!

    King Rabbit

    The Diamond Collection will cost gamers $1.99. However, do note that those who have already purchased the past three expansions can get it for free. That’s right, nothing to pay for 64 new levels and tons of new perks to discover. It might help to remind new players that controlling the in-game rabbit will not always be as easy as it might seem to be! Fierce enemies and deadly traps will have to be surpassed. King Rabbit is all about platform-hopping thrills like no other!

    Remember that the title is presently free on major download stores and its new trailer will surely give you a hint of what to expect. Stay tuned for additional details about your favourite titles and remember that the comment section is now open for you to share your thoughts!

  • Till date, platform games have taken all sorts of forms and they have always managed to appeal to large portions of the market. The genre got a massive boost with the advent of Super Mario Run, and these days, things are still going strong and new titles are being released on a daily basis. Pixel Stomper’s latest launch is an app that can be considered as a pretty good example!

    It’s called Jutsu and it can now be downloaded from the App Stores around the globe. The game comes with beautifully put together and original comic book art, sound and gameplay. On the other hand, it’s a free-to-play experience that’s action-packed and loaded with a good dose of adventure. It might help to point out that pixel art is back in trend with the launch of this title.

    Jutsu

    Once installed, five worlds will have to be conquered. This will certainly be a real challenge, but rest assured as it will also be a fun journey across 5 perilous worlds. The ultimate goal will be to eventually beat foes and help the character get his powers back! 100 levels will have to be explored; with the right skills, one will surely get over it all to emerge as a winner.

     

    Jutsu can presently be downloaded from both the iOS and Android stores. The fierce in-game ninja is waiting for you to guide him to safety. Take some time to watch the trailer as it will certainly give you a better idea of what’s on offer. Dare to take up the free challenge!

  • In the recent years, platform games have adopted all sorts of themes in a move to try and impress players. While some decided to opt for high-end graphics, others went for original characters, cool sound and smooth controls. However, not all of them actually managed to reach their goals and shine as brightly as they were expected to!

    From what we have managed to observe, the most successful titles are also the most original ones. According to what we have gathered following a recent announcement, we personally believe that something pretty amazing is on the way! It’s called Cat Bird, and yes, it’s a platformer that will not only provide players with a challenge, but it will also come with a twist. The game’s main character will be somewhat special! 

    Cat Bird

    It will look like a cat, but once we have taken time to discover it, we will soon realise that it’s also a bird! Surprising, right?! Natural enemies have been combined to give birth to this peculiar character, and its unique in-game abilities will certainly boost this forthcoming mobile experience. The cute-looking white feline will actually be seen flying around the levels. Yes, a winged kitty is what you will have to deal with as you play on!

    Do note that the release is for the 24th of August; major app stores will definitely be targeted. For now, the developer has a trailer out there, one that showcases the in-app features, gameplay, graphics and sound pretty well. Do check it out soon and remember to share your thoughts and expectations in the comments section seen underneath this post. Stay tuned for a real treat!

Players across major platforms can update their versions of the app to enjoy several cool perks. Do note that this patch has been around since the month of March. Apart from improving many aspects of the game, we have all been overjoyed by the fact that a new playable character was added.

    Super Mario Run 2.0

    That’s none other than Yoshi and he will be seen in yellow, red, purple, or blue. Using a Yoshi of any of these colours in Toad Rally will actually help gamers catch more Toads of the same colour. On the other hand, a Bowser’s Challenge mode has also been implemented. Taking up this task will actually help players unlock new levels and battles against the nasty boss himself.

    In addition to everything that has been mentioned, Nintendo also announced that forthcoming events will bring more buildings. Version 2.0 is certainly a treat for millions, and it will be wise to stay tuned to learn more about future updates.
