Posts Tagged Call of Duty


Call of Duty: Strike Team has just received a rather sizable update. New weapons (sub-machine guns) have been included, as well as a new combat zone (a US Naval Carrier), and two new game modes.

Domination Mode (pictured below), like similarly-titled modes in other games, tasks players with capturing and holding specific points on a map in order to boost their score and earn multipliers. Global Conflict, on the other hand, puts players in command of a global-scale war against the Cordis Die; complete with new mission objectives, weekly rewards, leagues, and more.

The update for Call of Duty: Strike Team is already live, so go and update it why don’t you?

Call of Duty Strike Team Domination Game Mode

via: Our Review

Call of Duty is a new companion app from Activision that released alongside the latest title in the series, Call of Duty: Ghosts. It provides special bonuses for those who use it for clan wars, which includes additional solider customization and bonus multiplayer XP. It also lets users join, create, and manage clans. Users can even talk with other clan members through the app’s chat feature.

The Call of Duty app also comes with a second screen option that syncs in real-time during all multiplayer game modes. It lets users edit their squad, swap loadouts between spawns, and view post-match results.

For those hardcore fans that just can’t get enough Call of Duty, make sure to check out the app to see just how useful it could be.



The combination third and first-person shooting in Call of Duty: Strike Team is an interesting one, as we’ve mentioned. And that combo has been recently enhanced by way of a new update that includes a number of behind-the-scenes improvements across all compatible devices.

In addition to the general smoothing down and a reduced app size to make updating easier, Survival Mode maps are also available from the start now. So deciding between chipping away at the campaign or jumping in for a quick game has never been easier!

Bombcats Special Edition

Bombcats Special Edition is a puzzle game from Chillingo with an odd premise. In the game’s world, cats explode, and they only don’t explode if they are kept in a cage. The funny thing is these cats want to explode, so the goal of the game is for players to use exploding cats to jump their way over to captive cats and free them so they can explode, too. This zany premise ends up working though, as Bombcats is an absolutely delightful puzzle game. –Campbell Bird

Star Wars: Force Collection


I find myself stuck in the awkward no-man’s land between familiarity and rabid fandom. I’d call myself a Star Wars fan, certainly, but not I’m not a Fan. Even so, I was scowling with disgust and groaning out loud when Princess Leia was asking me to help her fend off storm troopers in a spectacularly cornball re-imagining of the first film’s opening moments. And yet, despite the patronizing fan service that makes even my low-level fanboy blood boil, Star Wars: Force Collection is actually quite good. –Rob Rich

Jumping Jupingo

Even someone with arachnophobia will enjoy Jumping Jupingo; a slick platform game with just the right dose of strategic thinking and action thrown into the mix. A baby spider rescue mission with a difference. Does it offer enough entertainment for the price tag? Playing as furry spider Jupingo, one’s mission is to guide our fearless (and rather cute) friend through the wilderness to rescue baby arachnids from the clutches of a race of evil alien invaders called the Clopters. Armed with just a set of strong springy legs and elastic silk thread, players must guide the jumping spider across the wilderness and aid the little ones back to safety. –Lucy Ingram

Sago Mini Pet Cafe

brain freeze

I have been charmed by Sago Sago’s new app, Sago Mini Pet Cafe – a universal interactive app for children. For those who do not know, Toca Boca has joined forces with zinc Roe to create delightful applications for toddlers. I have been a big fan of both Toca Boca and the Tickle Tap apps once developed by zinc Roe, many of which are re-developed for Sago Sago. Sago Mini Pet Cafe is a new title with elements that I remember from these earlier apps. It is nice to see these details within other titles. –Amy Solomon

If you are looking for the best reviews of Android apps, just head right over to AndroidRundown. Here are just some of the reviews served up this week:


The Last Express


Solvable mystery adventures are the cream of the mobile gaming crop as far as I’m concerned, and it’s not everyday we get a port like The Last Express on Android. It is borne from the popular PC game of the same name by the renown creator of the Prince of Persia line, Jordan Mechner. The game is played in the character of Robert Cath, a likable fellow fleeing his own troubles. He is on the move, and is looking to hook up with an old friend on the Orient Express. From there, the story explodes. Literally. –Tre Lawrence

Save the Snail


Save the Snail is a fun little game that brings another perspective of positional physics to Android gaming. Familiar gameplay rules the roost these days, and it is nice that this one brings it while stepping out on a ledge. And no, this isn’t just Yet Another Angry Birds Clone. In this one, the goal is to keep the snails safe from aerial dangers that can cause injury. Basically, there is usually a snail (or two) that exist in the playing area. The overall goal is to prevent the mollusks from being crushed by falling rocks (don’t ask) or being zapped by especially vicious sun rays. –Tre Lawrence

Mine Maze


I am positively sure that mining is the most popular current profession in all of gaming culture. Not even counting Minecraft, there are tons and tons of games that are based around mining, or have it as one of primary mechanics. It could be great to actually have a realistic game about mining, but it would probably be something completely dull, except for occasional cave ins, which result in an inescapable death traps – so, it wouldn’t be great at all, come to think of it. Mine Maze was released recently, and although it revolves around mining, it has about as much realistic mining gameplay as Angry Birds has ballistic models. –Tony Kuzmin

Also this week, Pocket Gamer has reviews for huge new shooters Call of Duty: Strike Team and Killzone Mercenary, and beginner’s guides for Junk Jack X and Terraria. The guys also list their favourite iOS and Android games in August, find more games like The Room, and tell you everything you need to know about microconsoles. All that and more, in the Pocket Gamer weekly wrap-up.

And finally, in this week’s episode of the AppSpy News Wrap-Up, we get flanked by an unexpected Call of Duty game. We also take a look at the Telepods in the upcoming Angry Birds Star Wars II, and check out 2K’s shamelessly self-referential new racer, 2K Drive.

No matter how many times you put them down, zombies just won’t stay dead. Activision has launched their latest update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies and this one is a doozy. The team has ported over the popular “Ascension” map from consoles and added enough goodies to keep you blasting away at the undead hordes for hours.

The new map is set in a Cold War-era cosmodrome overrun with zombies and teeming with traps. Even more dangerous than the typical enemies are zombie monkeys which can swoop in and steal your perks as they maul your face off. Just remember that these monkeys are evil and you should have no trouble pulling the trigger.

The good news is your arsenal is getting an upgrade, too, and now you can deal death with the Thunder Gun, Matroyshka dolls, and Gersh Device. Players who like to really get up close and personal will also enjoy the inclusion of the Sickle. It’s the most fun you’ll ever have defending Mother Russia from reanimated rotting corpses.

Here’s a nice little surprise for Call of Duty fans: Activision just announced that it’s releasing Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies for iOS on December 1.

Black Ops Zombies is the successor to Activision’s 2009 experiment on the iOS platform, Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies. The game features similar gameplay to its predecessor, based on the gameplay from the zombies mode in the console version of Call of Duty: Black Ops. The game features first-person gameplay, utilizing the retina display.

There are also a number of improvements over the first Zombies foray on iOS. For one, Blacks Ops Zombies features Voice Chat using either the iPhone’s speakers or a Bluetooth headset. Additionally, this sequel adds four-player co-op via Wi-Fi or online matchmaking. Very cool. There is even an online ranking mode. It seems that Ideakworks Game Studios has really fledged out things with its sequel. The studio has also included three different control schemes. The first uses the accelerometer and has players use one thumb to move, one thumb to shoot and tilt their device to look around. The second uses a more dual analog-style approach – one thumb moves, the other looks. Finally, there’s a touch-style control scheme where one thumb moves and the entire right side of the screen is used to look and aim.

The game features the level Kino der Toten from the original Black Ops, as well as 50 levels from Dead-Ops Arcade. Activision says that the next level available for download will be Ascension, which will be available for free. There’s no official word on future map downloads and whether or not they’ll be free, but 1UP says that an Activision rep commented on the subject, saying the publisher has learned its lesson regarding charging extra for maps.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies has been optimized to run on any iOS device that supports iOS 4. It is available on the iTunes App Store today, December 1, for $6.99.

While this is an iOS apps site, not all of us play games on just iOS devices. Shockingly, there are even games on other devices that people play on their PC or game consoles! One of these shockingly non-iOS games is Call of Duty: Black Ops. One of the neat features that the game includes for user individualization is the ability to create custom user emblems. By placing and morphing the various emblems available, users can create original designs (although some people have taken this opportunity to create designs that are either offensive or vulgar – sometimes they’re creatively offensive, but still offensive) to express their creativity.

Now, the problem is that to create or toy around with these emblems, you have to be actually playing the game to play with the emblem creator, and you might often be thinking of making an emblem between rounds of the game, never getting any time to actually play around with the emblem maker. Or, you might think that you want to play around with your emblem while you’re on the subway or train. What recourse do you have then? Enter Emblem Tools for Black Ops.

This unfortunately unofficial app replicates the functionality of Call of Duty: Black Ops’ emblem creator exactly – all 489 emblems are replicated in the game, which you can put in up to 12 layers, in a variety of colors. You can move, scale, and rotate them to your heart’s content. As some of the emblems are not available unless you play the game an obscene amount, or just don’t have a job, you can also use this app to toy around with those emblems that you will never be able to get. This is a relatively simple app, but thankfully does support fast app switching and the Retina Display for your on-the-go emblem creation. Call of Duty: Black Ops addicts may want to check this one out, though one can only hope that it proves to be a catalyst for some kind of official solution from Call of Duty publisher Activision that would allow users to modify their actual emblems via this app.
