In this hilarious mock up of Moses and and his efforts to help let God’s people go by crossing the Red Sea on foot, Mo, a Prophet who works for Pharaoh in Egypt must run for his life while assisting a variety of characters across dry land.  In Open Sea, your burden and task is to help lead wacky people: panicked girls, sleepy sloths, slow elders, zigzagging drunkards and dumbs who want to turn back, get to the other side safely while fending off the enemy.  As Mo, you’ll have the power to touch the sea and part it, swipe and shake your device to close waves and simply tapping on the screen sends lightning bolts towards the enemy.

Your adventure will let you cross heroes’ path, who will join the people and help them with miracles, like Jess who allows people to walk on water… And Abe, the Lovers, or El, whose miracle will allow you to turn villains back to ashes! And last but not least, take control of the legendary Nono’s Ark!

Open Sea! is a new unique action game for everyone, easy to grasp, but it will challenge your dexterity and tactical skills the more you progress in the adventure.
Gorgeous stylized HD graphics, refreshing addictive game play both simple and deep, cute and funny characters, humor, and catchy musics, are what you’ll get in this game… of biblical dimension!

Ready to give this biblical classic a go and help Mo perform?  Head on over to the Android Market for the download or feel free to use the QR code below for an added convenience.  And as always, don’t forget to let us know what you think of this comical app in the comments below.  Hit the break to check out the screen shots of these funny characters in action. » Read the rest

tagged , , , , , ,

I’ve recently came across this game in the Android market and for the likes of me couldn’t pin point where I’ve seen these birds before.  I swear the they look oddly familiar.  Oh well, it will eventually come to me.  Cut The Birds offers a bit of a mash up between Fruit Ninja and Angry Birds. Ahh yes, it just came to me :)  You have to slice these birds up before they smash into your device’s screen rendering cracks beyond repair.  You can swipe multiple birds with one swish of your finger.   However, be very cognizant of what you’re doing as bombs will eventually make their way to the air and if you slice one of those by accident, you’re done.  Ready to give it a try?  Check out the QR code available below or you can easily snatch it up from the Android Market.  In any event, don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below.  One has to wonder how long it’s going to take for Rovio to notice how much these birds look a lot like their pig smashing variety.

by Robert Nazarian on
tagged , , , , , ,

Adobe Flash Player 11 has been in beta for what seems like forever, but starting next month, it will be official along with AIR 3. The new features will include accelerated 2D and 3D graphics, but the biggest news is that it will be 1,000 times faster than Flash Player 10 and AIR 2.

Other additions will include allowing developers to package AIR 3 along with their apps in a single install, HD video quality for multiple platforms, DRM for video rentals, and 64-bit support. Allowing developers to package AIR 3 with their apps makes it a lot easier for users in that they won’t have to download and install AIR separately.

“With this milestone release Adobe pushes the envelope of what is possible on the Web with a typical PC and opens up a new world of immersive, high-performance gaming experiences,” said Danny Winokur, vice president and general manager of Platform, Adobe.

We learned on Thursday that AT&T would be partnering with NGMOCO to bring a whole new social gaming experience to the Android platform. Mobage will serve as a centralized ‘hub’ where gamers can connect and discover new games, as well as communicate with fellow players.

Games are consistently among the most popular entertainment apps for smartphones,” said Ted Woodbery, vice president of Wireless Data, Voice and Ancillary Services, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “We are pleased to be the first U.S. wireless carrier to work with NGMOCO and look forward to giving our Android customers access to the rich Mobage gaming catalog later this year.

AT&T customers can find the app conveniently located in the Android Market, under ‘Mobage’, after its release. While the service is only in beta at this time, AT&T hopes to give users an easier way to find good high-quality and indie games, by providing a centralized place dedicated to just that. This author would love to see some better games on Android.
