  • T-Mobile To Offer Free Data To Pokemon GO Players For One Year
    Bald Bouncer
    Pokemon GO is a pretty damn good game, and one that has completely taken the world by storm. That said, because of its need to be always connected to the internet, to locate you on its GPS map, it is also an absolute data hog, which can be prohibitive to many looking to play it.

    In America, however, carrier T-Mobile will be doing something very cool, and offering players one year’s worth of free data as far as Pokemon GO is concerned- simply put, T-Mobile subscribers playing...

  • State of Decay dev unveils mobile, multiplayer RPG Moonrise
    Bald Bouncer
    Undead Labs' next project departs the open-world, zombie apocalypse of State of Decay in favor of optimistic, dreamy fantasy and Pokemon-style companions. Dubbed "Moonrise," the multiplayer, mobile roleplaying game centers on the titular Moonrise, an event that causes creatures known as Solari to turn from humanity's peaceful pals to murderous beasts known as Lunari. As a Warden, it's your job to defeat the Lunari (which, helpfully, turns them back into Solari and adds a new ally to your cause). If you get bored of beating on computer-controlled...

  • Trials Frontier pops a wheelie, propels self to Android
    Bald Bouncer
    The Trials series provides both gratification from conquering brutally-difficult obstacle courses and surges of frustration from the dozens of attempts preceding a victory. If that's a mix of emotions you'd care to display in public, Trials Frontier is now available to Android users for the affordable download price of free. The experience isn't uninhibited though, since attempts on courses burn up a microtransaction-based currency of fuel. Contributing Editor Earnest Cavalli details the limitation in our Frontier installment of Portabliss...

  • Call of Duty: Strike Team ducks out of cover onto iOS

    A new Call of Duty ambushes us out of nowhere - on iOS no less! Call of Duty: Strike Team is a first-person shooter/squad-based RTS hybrid, out now for iPhone and iPad at $7. Developed by Activision mobile studio The Blast Furnace, Call of Duty: Strike Team puts players in an squad of operatives sent to deal with the latest worldwide conflict in which the US has become embroiled. That's a brief synopsis of the single-player campaign, while there's also a Horde-like survival mode that's integrated with leaderboards. I had a very quick go with the game's first mission on my iPhone 5 this morning, during which I stormed a snow-ridden Russian base as part of a two-man squad. It reminded me instantly of Raven Squad, Southpeak's Xbox 360 and PC FPS/RTS hybrid, thankfully not as plagued by bugs as that game was (at least so far!).

    As per Raven Squad, in Strike Team I could toggle between two perspectives with one tap, the game almost instantly switching from a 3D overhead perspective, called Drone View, to a traditional CoD first-person shooter view, and vice versa. In the first-person shooter view, movement was tied to the left side of the screen, and aiming the right. I could auto-aim on enemies by tapping the sides of the screen, switch the scope on and off using a button tap, and use other buttons to crouch, stealth kill, and switch between squad-mates.

    Meanwhile, in Drone View I could tap and drag my team members to locations, both in and out of cover, tap on enemies to take them out, or select variable options like stealth kills if the opportunity arose. According to the in-game FAQ, Drone View will prove most useful when stealth is the best option, or when facing "an enemy that's difficult to kill head-on."

    Being a Call of Duty game, Strike Team of course features perks that are gained by leveling up. They can also be obtained using tokens, which can be purchased using real-life cash or earned through various in-game activities, like leveling up, beating the campaign, signing in with a Call of Duty account, completing waves in Survival Mode, and playing the game across consecutive days. It's also worth noting that gesture and gyroscopic controls are supported via the settings menu.

    It's curious why Strike Team has launched with such little fanfare ahead of what will be the marquee launch of Call of Duty: Ghosts in two months time. Nonetheless, you can check it out for yourself on the App Store.
