Lodsys Is Back With More LawsuitsLodsys-patent-troll

Lodsys the patent troll is back at it trying to sue Game development companies for what they claim are patent violations. In the past they tried to file lawsuits against some of the smaller development studios. Low and behold, Google and Apple both backed up those companies and Lodsys lost. Well now they’re back and trying to go after some of the larger studios like Gameloft, Gamevil, Backflip Studios and Disney. Seriously? Disney? You’re going to sue Disney? Disney will come back at you with all their lush painted, hand drawn fury and lock you up in the depths of their theme park somewhere, never to be seen again. The current filings make many claims across many of these companies, in Gameloft’s example it’s Real Soccer 2012. The claims are ridiculous of course, with things like the button in game used to buy items. Maybe I’ll file a lawsuit for a patent on the use of brown hair in games. Think it’ll hold? If you’re a smaller development company, watch out and utilize this page link to brush up on how to protect yourself.

Eden To Green is finally available on the play store, although in a closed beta. Eden is a turn based strategy game where you play as plants, who are trying to clean up each stage and nurse it back to health. There’s over 100 different plants and 45 maps, and the whole game is built in beautiful real time 3D using Unreal Engine 3 so things are looking pretty good with the attention to detail from the developers here.unnamed (8) The game made some small appearances in the Tegrazone app last year then eventually disappeared without so much as an explanation. It seems Eden To Green is back and ready to get things going for players. The game looks fantastic and could be quite some fun especially if you like this genre of game.

Zynga’s Action RPG Battlestone Gets Some AttentionBattlestone-Zynga-android-game

When you hear the name Zynga, you don’t usually think action RPG games. That’s because they usually don’t publish those types of games. Outside of Horn of course. A new game on the way from Zynga called Battlestone, which is in fact an action RPG has had some images surface and the game actually looks pretty good.Battlestone Zynga android game 1 The story should play like an RPG, but the combat seems to be controlled by gestures. This was true with Horn and it’s no surprise that they went this route. Battlestone will have different character classes to play with throughout the game and will also come with a multiplayer PvP game mode so you can challenge friends. Battlestone is so far shaping up to be a decent game. And from the looks, it’ll be pretty to stare at.
