“Flappy Ford.” (SCREENSHOT)
Even though .GEARS Studios developer Dong Nguyen has pulled Flappy Bird from the market, the game lives on in various clones that have flooded the market.
My colleague Steve Tilley has even put together a list of five mobile games to get you over the loss of Flappy Bird. Most are not clones per se, but one of which, Ironpants, is almost a direct rip-off of the endless runner (or flyer as it were). The only difference is you play as a superhero instead of a bird and hold your finger on the screen instead of tapping to make him fly. It’s already the top free app available at the Apple App Store, according to the iTunes Charts.
Separate from this though, one clone that is sure to stand out is Flappy Ford which features the likeness of embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who is currently contending with the fact that details of a second video surrounding his crack-smoking have been released.
Bigby’s back and on the hunt for blood in the newest trailer for Telltale Games’ popular adventure game series The Wolf Among Us.
The second instalment in the series continues the story, based loosely on the characters in Bill Willingham’s comic book series Fables, of a rundown detective trying to solve the latest string of murders in a fictional town.
Video contains course language and mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised.
From the trailer, it looks like Bigby’s fictional alter ego, the big bad wolf, will definitely play a larger part in this episode. Beauty, Beast, and the sly frog, all return for episode two – alongside some fresh faces.
Although there is still no official release date for the second episode, many have speculated it will drop within the first two weeks of February.
The Wolf Among Us is Telltale Games’ fifth adapted point-and-click style title. Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, Law & Order, and the hugely successful Walking Dead series are all currently available.
Are you pumped for the second episode or are you bored of the point-and-click genre?
Grand Theft Auto just got a little more real thanks to one documentation’s efforts to preserve the events occurring in game.
Christopher Murray, a senior film editor for Laika, the studio behind animated successes Paranorman and Coraline, told Polygon that he hadn’t meant to document the game, but stumbled onto it during a play session.
“In a recent session, I was trying to evade repeated destruction by a tank, and I switched into passive mode in order to give me a chance at escape,” Murray told Polygon’s Megan Farokhmanesh.
Chad Neidt plays the theme to “Street Fighter II” in “Video Game Theme Classical Guitar Medley.” (VIDEO SCREENSHOT)
Are you a fan of video game music? If so, then you’ll love this medley by YouTube user Chad Neidt, where he takes refrains from 16 different video games and plays them on a classical guitar. All in a single minute.
The tracks vary from classics, such as Pacman and Legend of Zelda, to more recent titles, such as Red Dead Redemption and Skyrim. Even Portal and Halo make an appearance.
It’s going to take more than a flooded office to stop Hello Games from releasing their latest project.
Joe Danger Infinity, the successor to the the popular Joe Danger Touch, is the latest from the studio and will, despite the flood, be released as scheduled on Jan. 9.
