Quadropus Rampage Will Be Free-To-Playquadrapus-rampage-android-game

The upcoming game from Butterscotch Shenanigans (Who are they you ask? PFFTT!!! You don’t know? Kidding.) called Quadropus Rampage will be a free-to-play title unlike their last installment of crazy adventures on Android called Towel Fight 2: The Monocle of Destiny. The reason for this as stated by The Shenanigans crew themselves is to combat piracy.

You hear that out there ASSHOLES that couldn’t muster the couple bucks it cost to pay for their last game? If I could banhammer you I would. And Butterscotch wouldn’t stop me. They’d help. That’s who knows how many banhammers. Straight to the face.

Back on topic here, Quadropus Rampage will be a free title, but fear not my fellow gamers, Shenanigans (Hey Farve what’s that place with all the goofy shit on the walls?) has assured us that Quadropus, in all it’s fabled glory will not force anyone to make IAP’s unless they want to accelerate the upgrade process. Should you choose to stick to playing for free, you will be able to go through the game at a progression rate that is acceptable and steady. On a side note, our friends over at Butterscotch have hooked me up with the apk to test out the game in beta and its pretty damn awesome. If you have played Towel Fight 2 and enjoyed the crazy hilarity it brought to game play, you will love Quadropus Rampage as well. Look for this game coming soon. The game will be similar in visuals to Towel Fight 2 and will be an action-rpg style of play. It will carry plenty of upgrades to weapons, and items to help in your quest to … retrieve your lost tennis ball? That’ll teach you to play tennis in the abyss! The real task is actually to stop the rise of the abyssal sea creatures.

Bounty Arms THD Coming Very Soonbounty-arms-thd-android-game-logo

Those of you familiar with this crazy fun looking action platformer will be happy to know that the release is on the cusp of arrival. Supposedly arriving last week, no apk has showed up in the play store as of yet but the release is surely imminent as it was supposed to be up in the play store already. The push back is more then likely for a good reason, to work out bugs and what not so its as perfect a launch as possible, so hang tight kids the game is almost here.

Bounty Arms THD, as the name suggests, will be a side scrolling platform game where you will run around collecting bounties using many different weapons that are at your disposal. Even though this is a side scroller, at times you will have the ability to move toward or away from the screen in a more advanced depth of field control system making it more 3D like. Should prove to make the game visually striking and more fun. The game will be available for Tegra devices only as it is a THD title, but there’s always the possibility of a release for non THD devices later on.

The Original Sonic The Hedgehog Hits The Play Storeunnamed

Ok, I know were a bit late on the release of this awesome retro game from SEGA, but it filled so much of my time during the early gaming years I had growing up that I feel its worth noting about, even now over a week later. Those who grew up in the 80’s and 90’s and played video games more than likely played this game. New from the original Sega Gensis Classic, are time attack mode, a remastered soundtrack, and the playable ability of Tails and Knuckles.2

Awesome Right? Yeah, we thought so too. SEGA has also added in leaderboards and an achievement system for you competition whores out there. (Guilty!) The game will set you back $2.99 and will come with all of the above mentioned, as well as healthy slice of nostalgia. Hello again my little blue friend, nice to see you, as always.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1

SONY Secures The Rights To The Angry Birds Film99922-1280

Yes, you read that title correctly. Sony has secured the rights to the Angry Birds Movie, which is supposed to debut in the year 2016. That’s still a good chunk of time away, but for angry birds fans across the globe, time is not a factor. The notion that the movie is happening at all is exciting. You had to know that a movie would be made some time, with as popular as the game franchise has been for years, it’s now a reality more than ever. The movie will of course be in animated 3D, (did you expect anything different?) and is set to launch July 1st 2016. Mark your calendars folks.

Karateka Classic Kicks Outdated In The Face; Relaunches On Android3

If you like retro, and I mean REALLY RETRO, than hit up Karateka Classic for a time warp back 1984. This was a year before I was born, and it took me nearly 10 years to develop a taste for video games (mostly because that’s when we were first allowed to have a console) so I have never actually played this, but I have played many that look rather similar. Its use of the word “classic” in the title is undoubtedly the most fitting for the game.4 The game goes like this, your a karate hero, and you have to save to princess from the evil warlord Akuma. Kick, punch, kick, kick, WIN! There’s actually more to it then that but as evolved as this game is, that’s the gist of it. Sounds rather similar to a movie and another game I know. The game although re imagined, does a very good job at reminding older gamers of how ridiculously difficult video games could be back in the day. If you yearn for a bit of the past in your daily gaming habits, check out the new “old” Karateka Classic. For all that retro love you’ll be getting, you only have to fork out $.99.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1

Fire And Forget: The Final Assault Brings New Life To Old Game5

If you had an Amiga back in the day, you probably played the original game a time or two. Fire and Forget allowed you to unleash gratuitous violence on terrorists while simultaneously driving. Racing and bloodshed, what could be better in a video game right? Fire and Forget: Final Assault takes the old game, and breathes new life into it, lighting a “fire” (forgive the bad jokes) under gamers who played the old title. 6Make no mistake, Final Assault is a completely new game, with new graphics, and even better gameplay allowing you to relive the memories you may have had with old version. Its worth noting that your car can fly in this game, bringing yet another new element to the game that wasn’t there in the original. So far, there’s only been video footage released of the PC version of the game, but we can expect the Android version won’t be much different if at all. Check out the video to see how much fun this game is going to be, when you’re done drooling over the awesomeness, download the game from play store… oh, and make sure you have a couple bucks handy. Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1

Pudding Monsters Update Adds 25 New levels7

If you liked Cut The Rope and have not yet played Pudding Monsters (makers of Cut The Rope), now’s a great time to get in on the fun. The “Sky View” update which was recently released this month adds 25 new levels to the game inserting even more fun then what was available at the games launch. Sky View adds not only new and fresh levels but new gameplay mechanics as well, and even a new character called “Mr. Powerlifter Monster.” Zeptolab have done a great job with their games so far, so this update should add some huge excitement to what was already a great game. Pick up the update from the store button below.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1

Combo Crew Brings Cartoon like Beat Em’ Up action To Android8

What’s that? You wish oh so desperately for a brawler game experience that overshadows any other on Android? Game Bakers has heard your cry. Enter Combo Crew. The cartoon like brawler that you’ve been waiting for. Filled with plenty of fist to face action (straight from the mouth of GameBakers) that you’ll enjoy any day of the week. Mr. Boss has it all. Except one thing. He hasn’t beaten the three best fighters. That’s where you come in. You play as one of three characters looking to show Mr. Boss what’s what. No more pushing people around. Climb the tower and defeat the baddies, reach Mr. Boss and combo his ass into next week. The game features game play like Final fight, Double Dragon, Street Fighter and others, with no virtual D-Pad. Fluid touch based gesture controls are easy to learn says game bakers, making it even easier to unleash multitudes of combos on your foes.9The game supports online play, so you can compete or play together with friends. What could be better right? The game features multiple playable characters, over 80 moves to master and with a unique combo system and SUPER MOVES! Super moves just sounds awesome. I almost want to test it out just for that. Hundreds of missions and unlockables should keep players busy for a while. If you want to pick up Combo Crew you’ll have to fork out $1.99, but with all that’s included two bucks sounds like its plenty worth it.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1

Fast And The Furious 6: The Game Races Onto Google Play10

If 6 movies with games virtually based off of every one weren’t enough for you, you’re in luck, because Fast and The Furious 6: The Game from Kabam is now available. The game is set in London just like in the movie and you have to take out the mercenary drivers that are making things difficult. If you needed an outlet for all those urges to street race without landing your ass in jail, here’s your ticket.11 Like other racers, there will be different “jobs” you’ll have to complete to earn cash and respect, which are the currency for things in the game. Campaign mode as well as global tournaments are included so there will be something new to do most days. The game is free-to-play but will mots certainly have some IAP’s included as an option, it is unclear however if the IAP’s will lean more towards the mandatory side or not. Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1
