Games for Android: Issue 6

Traditional summer lull in the gaming industry for the big consoles goes unnoticed mdash; mobile game industry is blooming lush bulk novelties. That, however, is understandable, because the sea dragging a computer or set-top box is stupid, but the tablet or smartphone mdash; most it. Than to amuse themselves on the beach in between swims? Of course, high-quality and interesting game.

N.O.V.A. 3

Gameloft, seems seriously decided laquo; okuchitraquo, our favorite platform mdash; partial month has undergone several major releases. In addition to the two games on film, and we also got a sequel to the original series, which is good.

Personally for this issue’s Digest series NOVA was one of those projects that mentally he is listed as required for passage after buying a tablet. And it got there is not surprising, as almost an exact clone of Halo (unfortunately, the same boring in some places) looked very tempting. As a result, neither the first nor the second part did not disappoint, with one exception mdash; plot both composed entirely of well-worn cliches.

Aliens, ancient civilizations, some elite fighters … In general, to recall the past in the spirit of the game laquo; 10,000 games in one disketeraquo;, yours truly just stopped behind him. And starting to play in the third part, occasionally drove annoying idea that the prehistory still worth reading. But sanity prevailed mdash; very good that the script did not eat precious time. The plot is introduced only in order to justify a change of scenery, which, incidentally, has been very badsome. A local dialogues are sometimes forced to think of how common the name Cal in a year there, which is an action game. In general, half of the video to the middle of the game you can just squander to get back to the main mdash; shooter.

After all, we love him laquo; Novuraquo; mdash; postrelushki out great. In a measure of the dynamic, fun and colorful. Enemies die cars when we slo-mo sweeps through the room. At some point the game even like Bulletstorm mdash; anyone, I think, no need to explain what a compliment. Compared with the second part of the range of entertainment in the battles have not changed much. And for the mechanics of the game went the beaten Gameloft Modern Combat 3 the way of introducing elements freemium, and now, pour a bit of real currency, the player can buy a cool alien musket or armor thicker. Various tools of extermination by tradition a lot, but, honestly, remember only one trunk (and one mdash; purchase). But local travel by jeep and walking on a giant laquo; meheraquo, frankly, it would be necessary to throw out mdash; well, not look them in the waking shooter, and implemented crooked.

French gaming guild, apparently decided to move the entire clip its iconic projects in a new engine mdash; we have seen its ability to Modern Combat 3 and Gangstar: Rio, and now it is time to evaluate how he painted sci-fi-environment. Impressions ambiguous mdash; looks great, optimized well, although once or twice to the front comes out muddy textures, but then hiding behind some clever special effects. So visibility pumped mdash; often seen is where it ends local laquo; sferaraquo heaven;.

Way, had long wanted to complain about the fact that many developers are stubbornly unwilling to invent new ways of management, based on the capabilities of touch screens. After all, come up in the same Epic laquo; rezatraquo, enemies, why not invent something similar for the 3D-shooters? Sometimes you feel some laquo; traktoristomraquo, in a club where everyone plays in the first Quake. Of course, that is, sold well, but the fact that some depressing.

N.O.V.A. 3 Get a great continuation of the series. Do not come here in order to feel like a savior of the galaxy. But here you can taste and without much thought to destroy the population of the city average, and on a great game and not trying to claim. laquo; shot, killed! raquo; mdash; here is the approximate motto, and she follows him to the last frame.

Pros:

  • colorful graphics
  • exciting gameplay
  • great scenery

Disadvantages:

  • vague plot
  • separate graphical flaws

Rating:

  • 8/10

    Dead Trigger

    Download Dead Trigger from Google Play

    Zombie theme now in vogue. Seven years ago the market was exactly half the game about our dead brothers, and now natural nauseated from another beskozhey faces on the screen. On the other hand, maybe this is good mdash; any better than to go back to World.

    Talking about games

    Madfinger, willy-nilly, you start with the technical part. In fact, much of anything to say and do not. In short mdash; Unity. At its best and better than anywhere else in the industry. Sometimes it seems that the studio did not develop the game, and the demo process, after which you can view step aside and pour korvalola newfangled French engine of the review above. Because it is beautiful, because qualitatively, because you can connect the tablet to HD-monitor, pick up a gamepad and not contemplate the pixels in full screen.

    And, of course, about such things as the script, the intrigue and tension, forget immediately mdash; cardboard carton characters portray drama, after each story missions are confident that we are about to stop the invasion nohellip, What the hell laquo; ostanovimraquo, if three weeks of daily game I scored only seventeen levels, a favorite P90 swinging on a maximum forty second? Dead Trigger, naturally, is infinite. You can come today, to destroy a couple of thousands of former living, come tomorrow … And then the game is updated: expand the arsenal in half, add a new laquo; fishkuraquo, or another mode, raise the ceiling of mdash; and we again turn into beginners.

    Familiar? Yeah, Contract Killer: Zombies himself, only with the ability to go as they like. Although acute recognition did not, but the concept is stripped of almost one to one. You can certainly scream: laquo; ugly clone! Raquo; mdash; but somehow not desirable, because the game is very distinctive and original. Madfinger hardly inspired creation Glu, rather the idea is as banal as it is our goal in the game mdash; extermination. Even if we say and drag five boxes from all over the map, the true goal of this ravno nekrogenotsida organization is always in a single quarter. At least then, to earn money for new guns and kits, because for simple mileage from point A to point B with currency bags no presents. Therefore, the trigger on the floor, that is, mdash; thumb on the screen, and mdash; destroy. Gameplay failed mdash; game is balanced so bored simply was not possible.

    But that was not possible because it is a model of distribution. So as not to spoil their nerves, the review honestly listed developers for a money game, and then a little bit more mdash; for in-game gold. A week later, they built a natural Yaroslavna’s lament: that, laquo; piratovraquo lot, and made the game free. Special buns previously bought no one gave. And all this mdash; given the recent statistics on piracy, where the leader is not Android. Perhaps the developers realized that F2P-model will give more players, but it is necessary to save face somehow, here and decided to hide behind the native green robot, as a shield. It is not good.

    The dry residue is Dead Trigger mdash; design beautiful, interesting, and sometimes funny, but in general, no frills. He’s long-playing (this is at least the frequency of updates) and may soon be transformed beyond recognition. Playing well is killing the free half-hour and it can cause laquo; wow effektraquo; others have curious, so mdash; take.

    Pros:

    • most tech mobile graphics
    • strong and addictive gameplay
    • balance

    Disadvantages:

    • game developers with distribution model

      Asphalt 7: Heat

      Download Asphalt 7: Heat of Google Play

      Amazing series. Has for more than five years, it evolves with tiny steps, still gathers crowds of fans that replicate even half-dead Beta on hundreds of sites on this topic. That’s how great the desire of people to play a part in the next numbered.

      Why is this happening? After all, in fact the game is not nothing special mdash; usual racing arcade with bonuses, of which one hundred. Maybe it’s the lack of mobile platforms however, something tangible competitors mdash; of full three-dimensional projects in the car theme can remember except that Real Racing 2, and a mobile version of Need for Speed. Otherwise mdash; total bezrybe. So, the popularity Asphalt mdash; this is just a lack of competition?

      Not quite

      Mdash; game very successfully combines all the things for which people play arcade simulator. We welcome the beautiful graphics and a variety of routes, often pretending famous cities (though unsuccessfully) as well as a rather extensive fleet. It was a place for clunkers quite utilitarian, and for these road monsters like the Lamborghini Aventador and Bugatti Veyron. Even the races are made, given the enormous velocity and acceleration of constant use mdash; so intense, often almost half of the race is in the air.

      And it mdash; basic feature not only Ashpalt 7: Heat, but also many other projects Gameloft. These guys are easy to spit on realism, but give gamers a lot of fun that they go completely without complaining. Because the only way you can achieve great popularity rather average at first games.

      Anyone who has played even in a J2ME-version Asphalt, feel not just at home, but experienced an acute deja vu. No differences from the previous parts there is no trace mdash; pozaproshlogodnego of Adrenaline new Heat a little different.

      Questions to the technical part does not arise, for the reasons articulated in the review of the NOVA 3, mdash; same engine draws a colorful picture, showing off, however, the same drawbacks. We should praise the machines mdash; their great delight the eye contours.

      Series is clearly on its own, laquo; ulichnymraquo particular, through development. Gameplay in every fresh revelation release mdash; this is not about her. Maybe this seems too good characteristic, but a couple of hours in Heat gives so much experience, that the idea of ??progress becomes secondary. And then you realize that pleasure mdash; is the main emotion that we want to get the games.

      Pros:

      • full race drive
      • nice graphics
      • diverse fleet

      Disadvantages:

      • seventh incarnation of the same ideas

        Where s my Perry?

        Download Where’s my Perry? of Google Play

        My personal game of the year / century / millennium mdash; this laquo; Where s my water? raquo;. does not matter that I’m out of a quarter and is still a small beard begins to look through the beer belly. A game about touching crocodile who just wants to finally clean up mdash; an unconditional masterpiece ideological continuation of which is laquo; Where s my Perry? Raquo;.

        Do not know how the public is aware of the Hon, who is Perry the platypus, but personally, I was saved by the Good Corporation, skylight, it’s one of the characters in the American animated television series laquo; Phineas and Ferbraquo.; This concludes our introduction to the hero of the game, that you have filled up the audience Google and found it ourselves. I can only say that the hero in principle a good idea, and even has a certain charm, though not in such fusion, like Swamp.

        Say that the mechanic did not change, it would be wrong. Yet anyone familiar with the original scheme and its extension, understand that all of the new chips can be forbidding to add to the first part, do not fuss with the replacement of ducks on the gnomes.

        Otherwise we are waiting for the familiar game of water delivery to the destination. For this, we have to dig in the ground passages, and also use the various cunning devices, created visionary developers, mdash; shows that trying to distance itself from the original, they are hardly used old techniques, and have come up with some new ones. For example, we do not bother laquo; otravaraquo;, destroying blood in the original. Instead it creates a problem flashed all water orange liquid.

        Clear that the lack of revolutionary ideas should at least in theory be covered graphical twists. And then you can safely exhale mdash; developers finally replaced the vague blurry ground textures pretty well. In addition, they have altered the water, which now looks a little more realistic. Actually, in all the other technical aspects of game one in a borrowed plus the original.

        I hope that this is still a spin-off. Because, like it or not, you want to give the water Milyaga Swamp, not incomprehensible platypus, which on the title picture at all like a loaf with green legs. Let Disney and fit into the game good dialogue and funny videos between chapters, but the mechanics laquo; kopatelyaraquo, had already firmly attached to a crocodile with a yellow duck, and therefore to perceive it in isolation from it is simply impossible mdash; always feel almost physically discomfort. Let laquo; Where s my Perry? Raquo; shy; ndash; soundly, and good quality game, but, anyway mdash; personally I expect laquo; Where s my water? Raquo; number two.

        Pros:

        • excellent design
        • interesting puzzles

        Disadvantages:

        • lack Swamp starring
