Boulderdash Making Its Way To Android To Celebrate 30th Anniversaryboulder-dash-30thann

If you’re familiar with the old school game Boulderdash, and perhaps of you even enjoyed playing this great retro title back in the day, you might be interested to know that Boulderdash will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary soon, and to help ring in the occasion, there will apparently be an Android version of the re-work coming our way. The game is slated for release later in the year but there is no official date set yet. When it does drop, the game will be free with plenty of content to start, and if you want to expand the game there will be optional IAP for more levels and such. Seems like a great idea to us and we can’t wait to see how Boulderdash transforms for the new modern mobile gaming space.

Barmark Raises The Bar For Weirdest And Most Intriguing Game So Far This YearThe Cave Panorama

In the years that Android has been alive, we’ve come across quite a few weird games. None have been as intriguing though as Barmark, an upcoming game from Stormhatt Studios out of Sweden. After you watch the trailer the first thing you notice is the hand painted art that undoubtedly took many sleepless nights to create. Little to nothing is really known about the game, but we can discern from the teaser trailer that it has a sort of mood induced emotional element meant to immerse the player. We’re not too sure what to make of the game, but it sure looks interesting.
