Back in February a game took the AppStore by storm, causing mountains of controversy at the same time… That game was the brain child of Dong Nguyen, and was of course called Flappy Bird. The crazily addictive game split people into two groups, those who played and loved it and those who didn’t play and hated everything about it.
Although the game was only available on the AppStore for 26 days, it caused a phenomenon never seen before from one small app. People where actually buying and selling devices simply because they had the game installed! Totally insane..
Dong has since ‘leaked’ to the press that a new Flappy Bird variant is on it’s way.. He expects to have it published to the AppStore by the end of August. It it’s predecessors success is anything to go by it’s going to be a huge hit!
It’s also reported to be a multiplayer variant of the game, meaning you can pit your bird flapping skills against your friends and family. At this stage it’s not known if it will be a local network multiplayer game or if it will be hooked up to Apple’s Game Centre.
Maybe – just maybe, this time it will manage to survive more then a calendar month in the store.. One things for sure, it’s going to make Dong a very rich man..
Thats right! If you was born in the 80’s you’ll more then likely recognise the face in the picture above! The all time ‘cult classic’ that is Carmegeddon has just been released for iOS and for today only its available completely free of charge on the AppStore! So what are you waiting for!? Get hitting those checkpoints, an spreading the love blood across the Tarmac.
Here’s one for all of you Mafia Wars players out there… Mafia Wars is a game by Zynga Game Network Inc. hosted on the popular social networking sites Facebook and MySpace. If you are a fan of Mafia Wars, then you’ll like this..
iMobsters is a popular iPhone role playing game by Storm8, it’s based around the same principals as Mafia Wars, in which you start of as a lone gangster running the streets of the Bronx. Working for a Godfather, for which you accrue points to spend on various things by completing missions.
Each mission is based around a crime, and requires energy points and weapons to complete. As you work through the missions you earn cash, which you can spend on more weapons in order to complete more jobs. Or place down on real estate, to become the ultimate property tycoon.
In a similar way to Mafia Wars, you can invite other iPhone players using your own unique iMobster code, which you can see in the picture to the left just under the gangster. (Mine is T9S89D) When you are not doing missions, you also have the ability to initiate turf wars with other iMobster players, where obviously the bigger, better equipped mafia wins.
