Mobile gaming can make ridiculous sums of money. Usually, this goes to making publishers rather wealthy and subsequently become greedy. Here's a pretty new mobile game that actually supports a good cause.
Nintendo is entering the mobile space. While they need to make money and thrive, Satoru Iwata doesn't like the model of finding a whale. Rather than turn into a modern day Ahab, he wants to reach a wide range of people on mobile, and get everyone involved and excited. While I don't know how well it will work, his words make me incredibly happy.
Cloning is a real thing, especially in the indie gaming world. When it's derivative and takes games to a new level, developers don't really mind. But when you outright steal someone's game, it's a major problem. One developer is accusing a publisher of doing just that, and I'm inclined to believe him.
You either love or hate PewDiePie. If you’re the former, I’ve got some great news. If you’re the latter, best you prepare yourself, because you’re about to see even more of the YouTube sensation. He’s set to star in his own game, and it’s coming to a mobile device near you.

Mobile games are all just about the pretty pictures, right? It's hard to even think of a mobile game that's dark and gritty - it's all about the pretty colors of Candy Crush or the calming music of Threes. But there's a new mobile game that is already available and will make waiting for meetings or public transportation a whole lot more bloody.
I got an email at the end of last week with an awesome bit of top secret information. It was all about TouchTone, a new indie puzzle game for iOS that looked really cool. I loaded up a review code and have been missing sleep ever since thanks to spending far too much time playing it. Be warned, this may be even more addictive than Threes.
Last month, I told you about the ridiculous amount of money that mobile games spent on advertising during the Super Bowl. Costing anywhere between $2-9 million, that time had to pay off. Looking at the download figures, it appears that some games really did benefit from it.
Apparently the 2015 Technology, Internet and Media Conference is underway. I honestly can't even keep track of all these conferences and events, but EA CFO Blake Jorgensen was there and he made some rather controversial remarks that might be totally on target.
Of all the ad space on TV, the most coveted spot is during (or before or after) the Super Bowl. With millions of people tuning in, some just for the commercials, it's almost understandable that ad agencies spent about $150k per second. Almost. What may surprise some people is that it wasn't just cars and beer on show during the big game.
I hate gambling. There are a myriad reasons why, and it's currently illegal in South Africa outside of registered casinos and betting halls. However, the mobile gambling industry isn't just growing, it is surpassing traditional betting.
The Witcher 3 is still a few months away, but it isn't the only game from the series that CD Project RED is working on. Last year a brand new MOBA set in the Witcher universe was announced, but since then there's been hardly anything else about the title. That's going to change though - because the game is out in two days.
How much are you willing to spend on a controller? Modular madness professional Mad Catz are basically asking that question with their latest creation, the LYNX 9 controller for Android and Windows. Let’s not mince words; it’s a $300 accessory for playing mobile and PC games, but I’ll be damned if it doesn’t look interesting.
When I read this article that Hideo Kojima's game of the year was a random mobile game, I had a small giggle to myself and carried on with my day. But the premise of the game stuck with me, and I couldn't help but buy it, and now I'm ever so glad that I did.
Hearthstone is one of this year’s standout mobile game, even though it’s been out exclusively on Apple devices for months now. The game works far better on the go, and acts as a devilishly terrible distraction from everything else you’re probably meant to be doing during a regular day. So if you’ve been avoiding it purely because you can’t stand Apple, then you’re in trouble.
