Pop! Ilumbo - A puzzle game with pop art vibes

pop ilumbo
There´s quite a few puzzles to just waits to be solved in Pop! Illumbo.

It´s been a while since i played a decent puzzle game on my Android phone. But today i had the pleasure to try Ilumbo´s F2P puzzle game "Pop! Ilumbo". And i sure don´t regret doing so. Especially not due the fact that Pop! Ilumbo uses Ilumbo’s WarpHole technology.

And that enables the possibility to borrow art from other games that´s installed on your Android device (and that´s a really cool feature imo). So if you´re into puzzle games and just happens to own a Android tablet or smartphone.

Then you might wanna give Pop! Ilumbo a go!

About Pop! Ilumbo:
Puzzle goodness that is enjoyable by all and leaves an eye-candy reward for every solution. Delicious and unforgettable. It’s as if we included that special ingredient we stole from your grandma. Fully WarpHole-powered. This technology brings your other games to life inside Pop! Ilumbo. Discover the art hidden in the data space of your device. Beware: upsetting your device’s hardware may affect Pop! Ilumbo.

Sony Xperia Z3 – Sonys iPhone killer

sony xperia z3
I have to say that i really like the design of Sonys Sony Xperia Z3.

There´s a lot of competition on the smart phone market nowadays. More than ever before actually. Apple may have been the top cat of the market for several years now.

But times have (and the circumstances) changed. Samsung has started to take market shares from Apple, and China wants a piece of the pie as well (Google "Xiaomi", because they are the worlds third biggest smartphone manufacturer now).

Then we got Sony (that´s now independent from Ericsson), whom has been something of an underdog for quite some time now. But that´s about to change. And the Xperia Z3 seems to be the very beginning of that change. Me, i´m a Gamer.

So i really like that Xperia Z3 supports "PS4 Remote Play", and that it´s a really powerful smart phone (you can play the most advanced mobile games on the market with no sweat!). Awesome indeed.

But what does the Xperia Z3 costs then? About  £549 for a unlock phone (Tre sells the unlocked version of Xperia Z3 for 6,000 Swedish krona).

That's A pretty good price considering what you get for that money (check out the Xperia Z3 features list down below!). Besides, it´s about time that i get a new smartphone. Because i´m still using a old iPhone 4.

But what about you guys? What do you think about

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare companion app is now available

call of duty advanced warfare
COD Advanced Warfare has been out for two days now (for PC, PS3, PS3, 360 and Xbox One).

I know that not everyone may like COD as a whole. And i can admit that i´m not the biggest of fans of COD either. But i have to admit that Sledge Hammer Games has done a really great job with COD Advanced Warfare.

And the reviews have been rather good as well. For example, the Xbox One game got a average grade of 85.07%. And the PS4 version has a average grade of 84.64% via Gamerankings.com
So that´s not all bad. And the Advanced Warfare companion app is pretty bad ass imo (it´s all free too). But what do you guys think about COD Advanced Warfare and the companion app so far?

LBA1, a real masterpiece by mr Frédérick Raynal.

Earlier today i wrote about Frédérick Raynal´s (and Gloomy Wood´s) upcoming 2.5D survival horror game "2Dark". Well, guess what? When i visited the 2.5D homepage i found out that there´s a mobile port (made by DotEmuof Little Big Adventure for iOS and Android.

5% - A gyroscope horror FPS game for iOS

ios horror game
If you got a phobia for gyroscope´s. Then you better avoid 5%.

Funny enough, quite a few of our fans have asked us to record more horror gameplay videos just recently. Well, guess what? Just the other day we were contacted by One Aperture (the makers of  "Motte Island" and "5%").

And they just happen to be the creators of the iOS horror game "5%" (which you can buy via the App store for $1). So i´m going to give 5% a try on my iPad asap! Because i can´t say that i´ve seen (or played) that many mobile horror games of this kind before.

About 5%:
From the publisher of successful desktop game Motte Island, One Aperture presents 5%. It is a first-person gyroscopic game for IOS devices. You are equipped only with your phone. No zombie slaying and no shooting. You only need to get out on time with the remaining battery you have. Play with the volume up and be ready to run for safety! Due to heavy graphic rendering, 5% only supports iPhone 4 model and up.
