This game came out of no where! Released just days ago, the app has climbed to #4 in Top Free Apps on Android Market, coming in just after Facebook, Pandora, and Angry Birds. After downloading it myself, I can see why. Like Angry Birds, the game is easy to learn and increasingly addictive.
If you’re anything like my girlfriend, you have beaten most, if not all levels within the series of Angry Birds games. Having spent a ton of time playing all 3 games, the only hope she has for a new and refreshing gaming experience is when a new level gets added to Angry birds Seasons, and boy let me tell you she gets stoked when that happens! Wait till she see this though. According to a teaser video released by Rovio (AB creator), a totally new game is in her future – Angry Birds Space.
While the video doesn’t really divulge much info or details other than it’s being released on March 22, but I think it’s safe to say the game will take place in space. The only thing I can assume from this is that maybe there will be some kind of wonky flight path due to the lack of gravity in space. I dunno. Based on the teaser video’s naming scheme: Angry Birds Space – Teaser #1, you can expect there will be more teaser videos to follow. I am sure we will start to see more details emerge as soon as the next video is released. We will keep our eyes out for anything new and will let you know as soon as we learn more. In the meantime, jump past the break for the short teaser clip. Keep in mid I did say short. » Read the rest
If any of you are avid Android gamers I am sure you are familiar with the game developer Gamevil. In case you aren’t familiar, Gamevil is responsible for bringing us uber popular game titles such as Cartoon Wars, Air Penguin and both the Soccer and Baseball Superstars series’. Just yesterday, Gamevil released their latest title in the Baseball Superstars series and this time it’s in HD. With a series that has already received over 30 million downloads you can expect the newest release to be better than the rest.
I think stepping up to the plate and releasing the game in HD was a wise move on Gamevil’s part. With the quality of displays we are seeing on devices these days, its a bummer when you download a new app or game and it can’t even utilize your device to its fullest potential. Good call Gamevil!
Other than improved gameplay and HD graphics, Baseball Superstars 2012 brings other additional features such as: » Read the rest
For those of you following everything Android and Android gaming for that matter, should be familiar with Double Fine’s latest adventure endeavor, “Double Fine Adventure”.

If the sources of PocketLint are correct, HTC will be getting the
coveted Sony Playstation certification for its smartphones and tablets in the second half of this year. It is expected for Sony and HTC to make the announcement at this years Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in a couple weeks.
The PlayStation certification program kicked off last year with the announcement of the PlayStation Vita. Sony Entertainment CEO, and soon-to-be Sony Co. president, Kaz Hirai, says that this certification program was intended to expand the PlayStation experience across many platforms, beyond just the PSP borders. It has been a slow start for the program as not many device manufacturers have jumped on the opportunity to become certified. Maybe it’s because the Xperia Play didn’t take off as well as Sony had hoped, I don’t know. » Read the rest
Temple Run is a popular game. How popular? Like… 36 million downloads popular. I’ll give you a second to wrap your head around that number for a sec. Currently only available on the Apple App Store, Temple Run is an endless run game, meaning you keep going until you die, but the longer you go for, the higher your reward becomes. You’re escaping a temple pursued by crazy bloodthirsty monkeys, collecting coins and dodging obstacles along the way. If the monkeys get to you though, they have a multitude of methods to kill you.
Why is this iOS game being reported on TalkAndroid.com? Well, the release date for last week was postponed, and another one has been set for next month. After all, that many people can’t be wrong about a game, so I recommend keeping an eye on the Android Market and hopefully next month you’ll get to try your hand at Temple Run.
