It looks like the increasing popularity of mobile gaming is making waves at Hollywood!
We’ve already seen a mobile game version of the Dark Knight Rises, a must-see summer blockbuster, and the hugely popular Temple Run went down the mainstream path, with a tie-up with Disney, Temple Run: Brave. Movie trailers are so 2010!
Another blockbuster following this trend is the “Amazing Spiderman,” a reboot of the well-known series, starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. Gameloft recently announced that the mobile game would be available on the Google Play Store in time for the release of the movie. Always eager to share, the game maker gave us a [...]
I’ve said it before – even with high-end devices nowadays featuring quad-core processors and HD displays, it has always been the “simple” games like Angry Birds and Temple Run that have rocketed to the top of the charts on both the Android and iOS platforms. But there is a reason that we all want multi-core processors and high resolution displays, and checking e-mail in HD just isn’t that reason.
It might just be me, but one of the reasons I wanted and bought a device with high end specs is for cutting-edge gaming. While Angry Birds is a lot of fun and I had to force myself to stop playing Temple Run so I could write this piece, it’s [...]
Among the many mobile game developers, Gameloft is among the most consistent in coming up with games one after another. And mind you, most if not all of those games are not run-of-the-mill but well designed and good looking games. And so it seems that Gameloft is on a roll again preparing a game for Android, namely Asphalt 7.
For those into adrenalin-pumping racing games, I’m pretty sure you’ve played one or two games in the Asphalt series. Asphalt 6 for Android was a big hit and we’re pretty sure, its follow-up entitled Asphalt 7: Heat will surely be a runaway hit as well. Asphalt 7 will take you into the racing circuits in Shanghai, Hawaii, London, [...]
Hollywood hasn’t exactly been a flowing river of original ideas these past few years, so it came as no surprise that, just five years after Spider-Man 3, the super-hero movie series was rebooted. A new “Amazing Spider-Man” is due to be released this summer, with a fresh new cast, director, screenplay and a slightly tweaked storyline.
Andrew Garfield will take over the title character of the movie from Tobey Maguire and, while it’s obvious we’re not dealing with the exact same plot as in the 2002, 2004 and 2007 films, we don’t expect many touches of originality either.
However, longstanding fans of the Spider-Man comics and franchise will surely take 3D and IMAX [...]
Lo and behold, all you heavy mobile gamers out there! Gameloft’s N.O.V.A. 3 action-adventure first-person shooter has (finally) found its way to Google Play and is ready to suppress any attempt to a social life you might have, make you flunk your exams and get fired from your job!
Already available for purchase, N.O.V.A. 3 for Android goes for $6.99, which might be a bit steep for some of you, but, as far as we can tell right now, the game deserves every penny of those seven bucks and probably more.
We’ve been seeing a bunch of teasers and trailers of the new game for the past month or so, but now that the game is live and up for grabs, we have to tell you that [...]
If you had plans for any kind of outdoors activity over the following weeks or so, you should either cancel them entirely or make sure you’re always near a power source to plug in your mobile device. You will certainly need more “juice” than usual, because Gameloft is preparing to hit us with three exciting new titles.
We have already talked extensively about N.O.V.A. 3 and how cool the first few trailers look, but the third iteration of the successful action game franchise will not come solo. Asphalt 7: Heat and Men in Black 3 will also be released by Gameloft very soon, and both games are already on my to-download list.Asphalt 7: Heat
While I don’t think that [...]
We’ve pretty much suspected that Gameloft will be doing everything possible to promote the heck out of its upcoming N.O.V.A. 3 action game, but we’re still surprised to see how aggressive their advertising campaign has been over the past few weeks.
First, there was a teaser trailer that didn’t allow us to catch more than a short sneak peek of the future game. Less than a week ago, a more “conventional” trailer came out, followed shortly after by a multiplayer trailer. Both of the videos looked great and it became obvious that the game’s launch would be scheduled by the end of May.
And just when we started thinking that Gameloft would cool things down [...]
What good is your device’s high-performance GPU if there’s no game to make use of it, right?
One title that has continually tried to push the limit of Android devices is Gameloft’s N.O.V.A series, which is as good as a full-blown FPS game on a mobile platform can be. After teasing gamers with the release of a trailer showcasing amazing cutscenes, Gameloft just released a new trailer that shows off the actual gameplay of N.O.V.A 3.
The third iteration of the series, N.O.V.A 3 is expected to feature some of the most impressive graphics you’ve seen in a mobile game and an enhanced, action-packed gameplay. The new teaser takes us through a series of [...]
First-person shooters have always been a sort of a guilty pleasure for me and I remember fondly of all the hours and days I spent on my computer playing Halo: Combat Evolved about a decade ago. While Halo will probably remain in my heart forever, as it was a road-opener for me in the gaming world, over the past few years, I found other exciting games to spend my free time on.
One of my favorites these days, and probably all-time favorites also, is N.O.V.A. 2 HD, an action-adventure video game released for Android about a year ago and clearly inspired by Halo and other similar action games. N.O.V.A. 2 HD for Android will soon get a follower, according to official [...]
When we think of computer gaming, phones aren’t usually the first things to come to mind – the disastrous Nokia NGage is an exception. It is only nowadays that we see a real flowering of gaming on phones. This is mostly because of the arrival of powerful and small CPUs that currently back the latest generation of smart phones. 3D is also another thing we do not associate with mobile phones. But LG recently succeeded in delivering the 3D experience on phones with LG Optimus 3D – all without the stereotypical glasses.
Now, LG is all set to breach the gaming barrier with a little help from Gameloft.
Gameloft is quite proficient in the gaming [...]
