An App a Day - Mobile Gaming 10 Years On

POST: 11 May 2017    BY Michael Williams   IN: Blog

Since the dawn of apps – the clock to get us out of bed, the notepad to write our lists and plans, the phone and the text message app to keep us connected – have we considered every need for our day-to-day lives. That’s why it wasn’t long before the first mobile gaming app was invented in August 2007 for the iPhone. Lights Out involved toggling squares on a grid to try to turn all the lights out – touching squares toggled nearby lights, and gameplay grew more difficult. The success of Lights Out saw it make a comeback to modern phones, with added levels, internet connectivity, and bonus features. Lights Out was invented even before the arrival of the App Store in 2008. Before then, mobile gaming came in the form of content nuggets – wallpaper, ringtones, and small videos – which sapped money from the attached card and resulted in a desperate flurry of taps on the exit button whenever the SMS portal was launched. The App Store revolutionized mobile gaming by providing a viable platform. And then people began downloading.

Mobile gaming makes use of the mobile as not just a tool to play the game on, but a tool to use in the game. While the touchscreen is a given on gameplay, Super Monkey Ball from Sega involved rolling a monkey about and made full use of the iPhone’s tilting screen. By adapting the game to feature the specific features of one of the smartphones on the market, iPhone users were more inclined to play a game only they could play. A more recent example would be Pokémon Go, which utilized the smartphone’s location and interconnectivity features to literally take over the world in 2016.

Mobile gaming have also brought traditional games back into the limelight. It is the case for the likes of chess, puzzles and card games such as blackjack. For instance, Microgaming Casino has developed a mobile version of the classic Atlantic City Blackjack variant, which dates back from 1976. Players can get a realistic simulation of holding, betting and doubling down and try multiple betting options. With the Chess Free app from AI Factory, players can test their skills against hundreds of others worldwide, learn more with a tutor and try one of the 120 chess programs.

The improvement in gameplay also sets mobile gaming ahead of the Nokia Snake days. Angry Birds began as a simple game of tossing birds at towers of pigs to try to crush them all. As developments came through, the levels grew harder, and fans chastised the gameplay for being too difficult (or maybe their birds just weren’t angry enough). By adding a skill to the game, the game transcended being a ‘game’ and became a mission to defeat the pigs.

The graphics available on a smartphone nowadays also showcase the benefits of mobile gaming. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions showcases the best of the best when it comes to graphics. The game’s feature is that it is in HD 3D and the graphics don’t disappoint the gaming. With the introduction of VR technology, there really will be no limit to mobile gaming. Look at the progress of the first decade of mobile gaming – and get ready for the next one.

 

Hiding Android Apps

POST: 10 May 2017    BY Michael Williams   IN: Blog

Risk

There are more than enough reasons to want to hide the Apps on your android device. The only person who should have unlimited access to your device is you. In this world that we are living it is very easy to allow someone into your inner circle only for that person to betray your trust. Even spouses for many years have been known to just up and betray their partner’s confidence. Therefore making you the best keeper of your secrets.

Unfortunately our android devices have a way of also revealing our secrets. Whether it is that online casino gambling hobby (check casino games) or wild weekend gate away with your mistress, your device knows about itall. And thus there is an urgent need to make sure that you learn how to keep your Android device quiet. Or at least to prevent it from voluntarily giving away your secrets. We are going to discuss the a few ways to keep your phone activities away from prying eyes.

Ways of Hiding Android Apps

Risk

1. Using a launcher. This is a simple method of preventing people from accessing the Apps on your Android device. There are many types of launchers in the market and most of them are free to download. Obvious you can choose to activate other features by subscribing for in-app purchases.

2. App-Lockers. The tool works to prevent access to your selected Apps. People can see that you have the App on your device but cannot have access to it. Thus protecting the content of your Apps.

3. Disable the App. Most android devices come with the ability to disable Apps. There are no downloads required for this. Simply go to the settings of your device, select Apps and choose the option to hide Apps.

4. Dedicated Solutions to hide Apps. The stuff of superspies. These are applications that appear to be another App (calculator, audio manager, online casino games etc) thus throwing off any suspicion. They offer a unique method to unlock the vault to your precious secrets. But this only works on rooted devices.

 

In this day and age, the sheer range of video games that we have at our disposal really is quite astounding, and nowhere is this growth more apparent than in the world of mobile gaming. At the end of 2016, there were over 631,000 mobile games listedand ready to download from the Apple App Store, a whopping 60% increase from the previous year – and you can bet that number will be reaching the one million mark at some point in the very near future

With so many options out there, the task of finding your new favorite game often feels like looking for a needle in a haystack. If you’re struggling to decide between all these newfangled titles then it always pays to remember what they say: the old ones really are the best. So, to save you a whole lot of time and effort, we’re here to run through four of the best old school video games that have now been updated for the mobile generation.

Set your thumb to download – you're going to need it!

Space Invaders

Space Invaders

Let’s kick things off with an absolute classic. Decades after it captured the hearts of the arcade hall masses, Space Invaders is back for iOS and Android and features every beloved detail that you can recall – from those pesky UFOs to the infamous ‘Nagoya Attack’ technique. In terms of playability, the settings have also been updated for iPhones and iPads in particular, with touch, drag and tilt controls all worked in.

Fans of iGaming will be pleased to hear that developer Playtech has recently released a Space Invaders-themed slot game which is also available as part of Sun Bingo's mobile bingo and slots app. The five-reel, ten-payline title features retro graphics and blips lifted from the original classic, while it's also set inside a virtual arcade cabinet for added authenticity.

Sonic The Hedgehog

Sonic The Hedgehog

That’s right, folks: your favorite hedgehog is back and faithfully remastered for your mobile gaming pleasure. Genesis title Sonic the Hedgehog really is one of those games that is instantly recognisable to pretty much any gamer because of its distinctive graphics, environment, obstacles and, erm, hedgehogs. Okay, so the touchscreen controls take a bit of time to get used to, but once you’re locked in then it doesn’t take long for the nostalgia to hit.

Or, if you want to veer away from the Sega classic to something a little more current then you can always try Sonic Dash, which, truth be told, has pretty stunning graphics and playability for a mobile game. The choice is yours!

Risk

Risk

This list wouldn’t be complete without a new take on a retro board game and, for us, it was an easy choice – Risk: Global Domination. Electro-pop band Tears For Fears were definitely right when they said everybody wants to rule the world – now you can do just that on your smartphone or tablet.

The updated version is really easy to play, features multiple game modes and allows you to battle it out online with up to six players from around the world. But the best thing is, just like the original version, everybody has their own preferred strategy to come out on top, whether it involves Papua New Guinea or not. Compared to a lot of other rebooted board games it’s pretty great and well worth upgrading to the full version.

Worms

Worms

You know what? Even though the first version of Worms came out over 20 years ago, in 1995, game developers are still struggling to conceive a concept that can match the simplicity of entrusting a small platoon of worms with an arsenal of bizarre weapons and letting them beat the hell out of each other.

Worms 3 brings the fun straight to your mobile and allows players to get busy with online multiplayer warfare – both ranked and friendly. There are also a bunch of single-player missions across four new themed environments and added customization options so you can make your team stand out from the crowd.

So there we have it: four awesome retro video games that have been rebooted specifically with the mobile generation in mind. Next time you need to get your fix of retro gaming, chances are you can scratch that itch simply by pulling your phone out of your pocket. What a world we live in!

Team Fuze iPhone, IPad App Review

POST: 22 Apr 2017    BY Super User   IN: Blog

Designed for the iPhone as well as iPad, the Team Fuze app from the stable of Muqbil Akhalaf is a new social tool for mobile devices where people can play online soccer together.

The latest version 1.44 was rolled out this year on April 19 with user interface update, some fixes to bugs and ability to find games being played at nearby location. It is 99.7 MB in size and compatible with iOS 9.3 or later. It supports the iPod touch too. The interface is made available in English as well as Arabic. It comes free and can be found in the Social Networking category on iTunes.

The key features of the app are like users can create a team, invite friends, setup a new match and find nearby matches too.

One can also voluntarily join a match and check who is coming to it either to play or to watch a match. Rating the players following wrap up of a match, awarding trophies, chat and sharing of match location are some of the cool feature that is worth downloading the Team Fuze app.

There are three stages of matches and in the first phase one can checkout who have come in and also learn the match location. He or she can use the chat feature to talk to other people who have come in to the match. The players are divided into two teams by admin, who also ends the match when it is done and goes to the next stage.

In the second stage the players get the right to vote for trophies as well as they can rate for each other too. This is a limited time period stage and lasts for just four hours.

Last but not the least comes the third stage in which calculation of votes are done and result is announced. The trophy goes to such player who gets most number of votes and the results are put on display for 24 hours.

Something to discuss about trophies is necessary as it is interesting. There are a total of four types of trophies and those are dubbed as MVP, best goal, dribbler and Ponera.

The enabled chat feature allows direct messaging, team chat and also in game chat.

Developer Muqbil Akhalaf says in the social app one can do a lot more than just setting up a sport match and inviting good friends.
