Mobile Monday

JohnBA Firefly game. Read that again: a Firefly game. It's an exciting prospect, even if it's a full 12 months away, but it's also a bit scary. Because, you know, despite being based on the best thing ever, what if it's not the best game ever?!

dale-p.gifWe dig it: Dale Hardshovel HD - Dale is out for some serious treasure, but like most things related to archaeology, that involves a lot of puzzle solving. Usually in the form of sliding things around to make platforms so you can match artefacts together. Dale Hardshovel blends spatially-aware objects with an intriguing (and intense) puzzle set-up. The trailer says it all, and despite the game's somewhat simple appearance, it hides a whole lot of challenge. (download)

colossatron-p.gifGiant robotic snake... from space - Halfbrick studios, those folks that made Jetpack Joyride, have announced a new game! Colossatron: Massive World Threat puts you in control of a gigantic robotic snake from outer space whose sole purpose in life is to destroy everything in its path. Instead of actually controlling the snakebot, you play a simple matching game that beefs up its defenses and forms new attacks. It's difficult to say in words, and maybe even a bit difficult to understand in video form, but it's Halfbrick and it's got a gigantic robotic snake from outer space. Instabuy, right?

firefly-p.gifDidn't take the sky from us - See? This boat's still flying. Recently announced by Fox Digital Entertainment, Firefly Online is a mobile game (iOS and Android) set to launch next summer. All that's known is gameplay is focused on recruiting people and leading missions to gather loot you can trade with other people. That's... really about it, but to be totally honest, all they had to do was say "It's based on Firefly" and you'd have our attention. Firefly Online isn't set to launch until next summer, though, so don't hold your breath! (trailer)

I'm with you, Dandy. I'm an "all things Firefly" kind of gal, so I hope Fox doesn't screw this up. Wow...wonder why they are waiting a year to launch?

Excited, but also believe Fox WILL find a way to screw this up. BUN tyen-shung duh ee-DWEY-ROH.

Hmm... Am I the only one here for the free game? :)

dsrtrosy July 23, 2013 11:38 AM

No no, gorgeousplanet. I am all about the free game. It didn't say we had to comment about that game! haha....I just sort of lost focus when I saw the word "Firefly".

Hoverboard> Dora Webcomic xkcd has been around for over a decade, and to celebrate the release of his new book, creator Randall Munroe has created a very simple piece of platforming interactive art. But venture beyond the small playing field, and you'll find a much bigger world than you thought that's full of surprises.  ...
Rock 'n' Roll Escape> Dora Pine Studio serves up a short but rock-worthy escape in your browser or free on iOS and Android as you try to find your way out of a cozy, abandoned little concert venue. But with a soundtrack this catchy, will you be able to resist air-guitaring long enough to escape?  ...
Weekday Escape N°103> Dora This week on Weekday Escape! no1game gets inside your computer and asks if you WANT TO PLAY A GAME? (Maybe you should call Matthew Broderick?) MayMay isn't letting you go anywhere until you get these snails out of the yard. And Vitamin Hana turns you right 'round baby, right 'round.  ...
Supermuzhik> Tricky Supermuzhik is an arcade-action sorta-shooter game by Aimar where the titular hero proves to be much better at "defeating evil" than "protecting the innocent", as he uses his telekinetic vision to fling the latter into the former. Viscerally enjoyable in its destruction, even if its difficulty takes a surprise leap about a third of the way in.  ...
