Mobile Monday №216
Feeling a bit edgy today? Does reading Mobile Monday put you on the edge of your seat? Fancy a slice of pie made with the edge of a knife? Noticing a theme yet? Is it pushing you to the edge of your sanity? Or is this constant stream of edgy questions responsible for that?
Incoming update for Joe Danger Touch! - Joe Danger Touch from Happy Games hit mobile devices early this year, and gee golly has everyone taken a liking to it! An update has just been pushed through, squashing a ton of bugs, adding iCloud support, and tweaking the gameplay here and there. But the really exciting news is that another, bigger update is coming soon, the details of which are so secret we couldn't even get a hint after sending three of our famous Bologna and Chocolate gift baskets. A lot of new content is on its way, as well as brand new game mechanics that we can pretty much guarantee will be awesome.
Edge No More - Back in 2009 there was a bit of a stink in the indie community. A certain Tim Langdell decided to enforce his "legal rights" over the use of the word "edge". Around this time, the mobile game EDGE was starting to make waves, but legal papers quickly buried the development team. After more fighting a (mostly) happy ending was had, but just recently the whole debacle has been laid to rest as the US courts officially nullified the trademarks. So go ahead, make a game, call it Edgy Edge McEdgington. You're safe now!
Prince returns to iOS - The prince of Persia, that is. Not the other one with that weird guitar. A few years ago Ubisoft released an updated version of the original Prince of Persia game for iOS. Now, the team is working on remastering Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame in the same style. The visuals are receiving a nice upgrade, the controls are being adjusted for gesture-based touch screen movements, and a handful of new weapons and abilities are being added. Just enough to get us interested in a little more princely wall jumping and scimitar fighting!
New content for King Cashing 2 - A big update recently hit the bizarre but ultimately awesome combination of slot machine combat and RPG, King Cashing 2. A new playable chapter called Wet Crown has been added, along with 30 new weapons, 15 additional Game Center achievements, a brand new class of item, and an extra level of difficulty called "hard", which is, you know, hard. King Cashing 2 was already a beefy game, and with all this extra (and free) content, it sort of makes you want to go high five the developers.
