  • Throne: Kingdom at War Review: Taking Mobile Strategy to a New Level

    Mobile strategy games are great, but have you ever felt like things could be a little bit more, well, interactive?

  • How Has Gaming Become More Sociable in 2017?

    When the gaming industry first started to gather pace – let’s think back to the early 1990s and the PlayStation’s heyday – consumers were happy with games ticking one isolated box: the entertainment box. Being able to take control of a character was revolutionary, and enough to keep us stuck to our screens for whole weekends. As the years passed, consumers started to become more and more discerning and demanding. These demands were partly driven by changes to expectations stemming from games like Call of Duty and FIFA. “Call of Duty : Advanced Warfare” by Joshua Livingston (CC BY 2.0) These two titles enhanced their gameplay through offering different means of communication. Call of Duty fosters active (real life) social groups of gamers who…

  • The Rise of Branded Content in Online Gaming

    (Source: Pexels) The world of online gaming has definitely come into its own in recent years – and it’s not just because of the increases in technology that allow iGaming to offer unique gameplay.

The integration of brands people know and love with games that test their skill, dexterity, and luck is proving to be a winning combination. The games market is saturated with a variety of games to play – from live casinos to slots and roulette – and finding a…

  • Samsung S8: The Turning Point for Apple Veterans?

    Once upon a time you’d have probably looked to Apple for striking innovations within the smartphone market. Each new announcement was filled with new ideas, features and excitement. However, since Steve Jobs passed, we’ve seen a lacklustre approach from the US. tech giant. Perhaps as Apple’s logo suggests, there was always going to be a competitor who wanted a bite from what was once a brand who dominated the smartphone and tablet market. I’m not afraid to admit that previously I was fond of Apple’s iPhone and iPad brand. I’d take one look at the competition and quickly see that the iPhone reigned supreme in many areas. For example, the build quality was always better, there was no plastic casing…

  • Super Mario Run: Pros and Cons

    Nintendo is really having a great time in life right now. They released the Switch which is selling very, very well. Time will tell what happens for this console but any positive news is a great thing for them to have after the failure of the Wii U, so that’s great for them. And they also released one of the best rated games in all of history. No, not against just Nintendo’s history, I mean the entire run of any game from any company ever. Things are truly looking great for them. But the Switch isn’t the only thing that Nintendo has been busy with. They’ve been making a slow, steady step into the smartphone gaming world. May as well…

  • 5 Starter Tips for Pokémon Go

    Take a walk in a busy downtown area, or even just along the street in a suburb, and you’ll see them— people with their heads bent over their smartphones as they stride along. At first, you might think they are texting; but then you notice some erratic behaviors— the way they hold their smartphone to one side or the other, or the way they stop suddenly or change direction for no apparent reason. Sometimes they swipe energetically at the smartphone screen, then break into an elated smile and do a fist pump. These aren’t your typical smartphone users from early 2016. No, these are Pokémon Go players. Maybe you’re just wading into the Pokémon Go culture already, or maybe you’re…

  • Mobile Gaming: Reasons You Should Be Playing

    When it comes to gaming, we tend to think of our XBox or our gaming PC as being the best option. Whilst this is often the case, we don’t always have access to these. If you’re away from home you could try games on your mobile. You might not realise it, but there are loads of options when it comes to games that you can play on your Smartphone (or your tablet!). Whilst these might not live up the graphics of a Playstation, or be quite the same as free monster truck games online you can play on your PC, they’re a great stop gap. Play At A Time That Suits You We live a generation that is used to…

  • Eat Dragonfly iOS Review

    Upon first inspection, “Eat Dragonfly” appears to be just another Flappy Bird knock-off, or perhaps some glittering variation thereof.  While there’s no disputing that the game actually borrows most of its basic concept from the runaway hit app, the truth is that it is also original in its own way(s).  In fact, one might even say that Eat Dragonfly outdoes Flappy Bird where fun is concerned. Rather than introducing gamers to a stripped down Mario-esque background and character yet again, this app’s developers actually took the time to create their own assets.  The backdrop is basically an animated bamboo forest of some kind and the main character (the “protagonist”, if you will) is a fairly large dragonfly with a unibrow…

  • Top Flappy Bird Alternatives

    The simple, yet lovable app “Flappy Bird” rose to prominence seemingly out of nowhere to become a truly hot commodity among mobile users. The developer becoming quite “freaked out” by his sudden incredible success (where millions of people were downloading it), he removed it from circulation, but now it’s back of course. Naturlaly, while we were experiencing some downtime there people were fervently looking for other similar alternatives, i.e. – games that offer nearly identical gameplay. Luckily, there are more than a few great options in this area which you are still free to explore, assuming you’re not playing the original right now, that is. Anyway, here are some of the top Flappy Bird substitutes out there right now (as…
