Mega Jump review: jumping for coins has never been so fun

Mega_Jump_Play_Store_review

 

A simple game that features a cartoonish design, a cuddly monster as a main character and the simple premise of jumping over coins in order to get major air can’t be the blueprint for an addictive game… can it? Well friends— Mega Jump brings those three components and effectively combines each to be what has to be not only one of the most painfully underrated games available, but an addictive game as well to hit gamers’ hands. What’s an even bigger crime is the fact that while the game is incredibly challenging to say the least, the gameplay is simplistic enough to have casual to hardcore gamers picking up the game and playing immediately— and with a minimal learning curve too. Read on to see what the game is about and why it may be worth your time.

Amazon Coins to be used as app currency on Kindle Fire

Amazon has announced a new currency system, appropriately titled Amazon Coins, for its Kindle Fire lineup. The Coins can be used on the Kindle Fire (and presumably other Android devices as well) to buy apps, games, and most importantly, in-app content. And when it launches in May, Amazon’s going to be giving away “tens of millions of dollars” of Coins to users to kickstart the program. Afterwards, the coins will be available to purchase normall. All applications submitted to the App Store before April 25th will be able to exchange the Amazon Coins automatically.

This isn’t a new concept, as it’s similar to what Facebook does for their games and apps, but I think it’ll be interesting to see how Amazon puts its own spin on the idea. In their press release, they made a bold claim that they see higher revenue per user than any other Android platform. Although they didn’t give any specific numbers for us to dissect, if its true, this Coins idea is definitely going to help change the way we view application stores and markets, which is better for consumers and developers. We’ll be sure to let you know if any more details pop up between now and May.

Ingress Updates App, Adds Zipcar & Jamba Juice Portals

by Rudy Rivapalacio on
tagged , ,

Ingress, Google’s augmented reality capture-the-flag meets X-Files game, has begun its evolution. The app, updated to version 1.20, has improved rendering, fixed a few bugs and FINALLY allows players to enable/disable email notifications. It’s still in closed beta with a scarce number of access keys, but active players saw portals pop up at Zipcar and Jamba Juice locations this Tuesday.

Portals were originally located at museums, libraries, historic landmarks and other points of interest in Google’s massive database. Players have since been able to submit  portal site submissions to NianticLabs@Google. Tuesday’s round of portal creation, however, marks the first time Google has attempted any form of monetizing the game.

Check out our initial Ingress announcement for a brief recap of the game. Those interested in joining the resistance can still request an invite from Ingress.com. Those leaning toward joining the enlightened should really reconsider.

Temple Run is one of the biggest mobile games to hit the market ever, ranking right up with the likes of Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja. Unfortunately, Android users had to wait quite a long time to have the game ported, but it looks like we won’t have to wait as long for the much anticipated sequel. The Guardian reported that Temple Run 2 should sliding into the Play Store on January 24th. Developer Imangi said they wanted to make the game cross-platform right from the start, so that played a huge role in getting it to both app stores so quickly. From the stunning new visuals and gameplay elements I’ve seen (which include a zipline and a mine cart) waiting at all is torture, but better late than never, right?
