Mobile Monday

JohnBHey there. How would you like a mobile game based on Game of Thrones? Well, you might just get it! Or you might not, it all depends on how far off the rumor mill is turning. As long as there's a mini-game centered around dropping dung on Joffrey, we'll consider it a success.

gameofthrones-p.jpgGame of Thrones... iOS? - Here's a silly question: who likes Game of Thrones? George R. R. Martin's massively epic fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire that turned into the equally massive HBO show could be coming to iOS in some game-like form. The fan site westeros.org recently posted a teaser image with the words "Winter is Coming" above an icon-shaped image and the App Store/NOOK logos. Intricate city management simulation? Card game? Punch-Out!! clone starring Tyrion? Another Angry Birds tie-in? (Oh please not the last one.) It's all rumor at this point, but it's fun to speculate!

Kung Fu FIGHT!Punch, kick, it's all in the mind - Android gets all the coolest, most indiest games first, doesn't it? If iOS owners were jealous a few weeks ago when we featured Nostatic Software's pixel-based endless running game for Android Kung Fu FIGHT!, you can now relax a bit, as the game has recently made its way to iPhone and iPad! Jump, slide, kick, and jump/slide-kick your way through levels filled with bad guys (mostly ninjas, wouldn't you know it) as you attempt to rescue the girl. A lot of excitement for a few little blocky characters!

openfeint.jpgOpenFeint goes bye-bye - Filed under the "lame-o business move" category, social gaming company GREE recently announced it would be discontinuing OpenFeint (which it purchased in 2011), the iOS market's original score sharing network. That's sad news in and of itself, but what really takes the cake and stomps on it is developers have just a few weeks to change to an alternate service or risk having broken apps lingering on the App Store. To top it off, Apple's yearly week-long vacation means many devs are busy finishing up end of the year releases as quickly as they can. Hopefully it won't cause too many issues, but it's still sad to see an oldie like this disappear so suddenly.

Got some delicious info on an upcoming mobile release, current event, or other tasty news tidbit? We want to know! Send an e-mail with "Mobile Monday" in the subject line to johnb AT casualgameplay DOT com. We'll sift through the submissions and feature our favorites on a Mobile Monday article! Keen!

I can't say I'm upset with OpenFeint going away. My only experience with Apps utilizing them is a "Free App of The Day" I downloaded from the Amazon App Store. Not long thereafter I received a "Suspicious sign in prevented" email on each of my gmail accounts that I have on my phone. I deleted the App and vowed never to install any app that used OpenFeint.
