Posted by on January 22nd, 2015

The Sims Freeplay is awesome, but as any fan will tell you there’s no such thing as having too many outfits – in real life or otherwise. Thankfully, Electronic Arts feels the same.

SimCity BuildIt is Getting Big – Really Big

Posted by on January 16th, 2015
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

SimCity BuildIt, by Electronic Arts, is a mobile freemium version of the ever-popular SimCity. And EA recently released an infographic that shows just how popular it’s getting.

While it’s not a true port of the PC classic, but instead a SimCity-themed social game with micro-transactions and wait times, SimCity BuildIt has proven it has its own city erecting allure. The app has had over 15,500,000 downloads and those new Mayors have earned over 19,952,234,204,841 simoleans. Those are some busy builders!

You can try SimCity BuildIt for yourself by downloading it for free on the App Store, and you can find more stats after the break. (more…)

EA and the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) are partnering up from now until January 31 to raise money for animals and ecosystems in an effort called Play With a Purpose. The pair will be offering special items and bundle packs that showcases an endangered animal or ecosystem. 35% of the net proceeds will go to support WWF global conservation efforts.

The list of games include:

  • Rhino & Madden NFL Mobile: Although there is no scientific proof of its medical value, rhino horn is highly prized in traditional Asian medicine. Illegal killing of Rhinos for horns has severely threatened their population. Supporting with the WWF Rhino Pack of 5 players.
  • Poison Dart Frog & Theme Park: The Amazonian poison dart frog uses its brightly colored skin to warn predators that it is unfit to eat. Climate change and habitat loss threaten their survival. Supporting with the WWF Poison Dart Frog Bundle.
  • Snow Leopard & Tetris Blitz: Inhabiting Central Asia and the Himalayas, snow leopards are threatened by habitat loss, diminished food supply, hunting for illegal wildlife trade, and revenge killings by herders. Supporting with the WWF Bundle.
  • Sumatran Tiger & Bejeweled Blitz: Fewer than 400 Sumatran tigers exist on the island of Sumatra. Accelerating deforestation and rampant poaching mean this noble creature could end up extinct. Supporting with the 270,000 Coins pack.
  • Emperor Penguin & MONOPOLY Slots: Known as the “giant of the penguins”, an adult can grow up to four feet in height and weigh 80 pounds. Climate change and habitat loss pose the greatest risks to these remarkable birds. Supporting with the WWF Pack.
  • Forests & Plants vs. Zombies 2: Over the past 50 years, about half the world’s original forest cover has been lost. The most significant cause for this is human deforestation. Supporting with the Sap-fling Reforestation Bundle.
  • Arctic Hare & Peggle Blast: The arctic hare lives in the tundra of the Arctic islands and faces threats from habitat loss and climate change. Supporting with the Master-activating Green Power Peg.

    SimCity BuildIt is a competent city-building game, but its free-to-play trappings are borderline monstrous.

    Read The Full Review »
    Hello, Budding Mayors
    Want to know what we made of all this upgrading and inevitable waiting? Check out our SimCity BuildIt review!

    SimCity BuildIt is a city-building game from EA. Your job as mayor is to build houses for people to live in, industry and utilities to serve them, and to try and make sure the good people of your city don’t get mixed up in their own sewage.

    SimCity BuildIt is straightforward for the most part, but that doesn’t mean running a city is always smooth sailing. Here are a few tips to keep your city happy and well-oiled.


    Basic Building

    simcitybuildit_05

    • More citizens means more taxes – When all is said and done, your goal in SimCity BuildIt is to attract new citizens and keep them happy so they don’t move out. More citizens means more tax money for beautification projects.
    • You’re not charged for paving streets or moving buildings, so go nuts – Moving stuff around in SimCity BuildIt doesn’t cost you anything, nor does laying down roads. You can organize and re-organize your city without fear of going broke, so go for it.
    • Visit neighbors’ trading posts for cheap goods – Make friends with other players, then visit their cities once a day to access their trading posts. It’s a great way to get materials quickly and cheaply. Every player is assigned to a fully-developed neighboring city, so don’t worry if you lack friends.

    At EA’s annual “Naughty & Nice” event in NYC last week, I was able to check out a few interesting mobile titles. I’ve already mentioned SimCity BuildIt, but there are two more up-and-comers worth talking about: Peggle Blast and Rescue Quest.

    Peggle Blast

    peggleblast1peggleblast2
    Peggle Blast is, you guessed it, more Peggle. Specifically it’s more in-line with Peggle 2 as many of the same folks who worked on the console sequel have had their hands in this new mobile release.

    Music that changes up to suit the mood (i.e. when you’re running low on shots, etc) has made the transition from the second game. The “Ode to Joy” segment that comes after you clear the final peg has also been dressed up a bit, and now spits out any balls you may have remaining to create some serious bouncy-madness for some extra points. It’s even possible for this celebration to end up clearing the entire board for you. Some memorable Masters are also returning, along with a few new faces that bring a new powers to the table (board?).

    Peggle Blast doesn’t have an official release date yet, but it will be coming to the App Store “very soon” for free.

    Rescue Quest

    rescuequest
    My initial impression of Rescue Quest was of yet another match-3 tile clearing game, similar to that one about the candy. However, while the point is to match like-shapes and clear tiles, the goal isn’t to clear the whole board.

    Instead, you’ll need to clear tiles in order to create a path for your character that stretches from the entrance of the level to the exit. You can double-tap to change the route they take (i.e. guide them through a longer stretch with fewer obstacles, take as straight a line as possible, etc) for a little more control as well. And in later levels, you’ll also have enemies to contend with that you can damage by creating matches in the areas they’re standing.

    Rescue Quest is also due out sometime this year, and will be free-to-play.

    What is SimCity BuildIt, Anyway?

    SimCity BuildIt has been teased here and there, but specific details have been a bit sparse. That is, until now.

    We recently had the chance to ask EA Mobile’s Vice President and General Manager, Jason Willig, some questions about the series’ new mobile outing. I was also able to get a live demo at EA’s recent Naughty & Nice event in New York, so I’ve got some serious impressions to share. After the questions, of course.

    Peggle Blast is Coming to iOS Soon

    Posted by on September 11th, 2014

    EA has announced that a new Peggle will be making its way onto iOS soon, in the form of Peggle Blast. The game features a more cartoony art style than Peggle Classic, but will still feature all of the skill shots and peg destroying players expect from the series.

    This announcement will not be much of a shock to some however, with Peggle Blast likely being the final version of the game currently out in New Zealand – known only as Peggle.

    A release date and official pricing are yet to be announced for Peggle Blast, but if the app does indeed follow the same pattern as the similar version currently available in New Zealand it will be free to download.

    When it comes to suburban life simulations, The Sims pretty much wrote the book. In The Sims Freeplay, we get to see a mobile-centric version of the game that is equal parts enjoyable and complex. Here are a few tips to get folks going on the natural path to building a happy, healthy cyber-community.

    Currency

    2014-07-23 18.02.59
    The first thing one probably wants to understand is the currency system. There are several different tenders that can be used to make purchases or otherwise enhance the life of your Sims. Within the game, the main form of currency is referred to – naturally – as “Simoleons.” Simoleons are probably most like real-life money, and can be earned by having Sims do things like going to work. Established properties can garner Simoleons at intervals, so it pays to “invest” and upgrade these properties. There are a few easter egg Simoleon earning activities as well, like pets digging for them.

    Another currency type is the “Social Point.” This can be earned in neighboring towns by doing tasks such as practicing fire fighting. This encourages interaction with other players, as it’s easier to get fellow players to invest in an item necessary to get Social Points. Social Points can be spent on items in the game store.

    2014-07-23 18.00.23“Lifestyle Points” can be gained by completing quests, increasing the town’s value, leveling-up, or watching and viewing special offers. They can also be purchased with real money. Lifestyle Points can be used to purchase items and speed up tasks.

    The game also incorporates experience points, which allow characters to level-up and have access to more content.

    2014-07-23 17.59.37
    One of the best ways to accumulate cash is to work. Consistently. On that note, getting promoted helps earn more faster. Building in moderation also helps maximize reserves. Happy Sims are better able to earn spendables, so keeping Sims inspired by ensuring their needs are met.

    Even the simple act of gardening also leads to supplemental game cash. Several “natural” tasks like checking mail can net small amounts that add up.

    Careers

    There are quite a few professions to choose from, ranging from Real Estate Agent to politician, and a Sim’s career can be enhanced by “practicing” the job. Practicing makes the Sim better, and helps them get promoted. Sims can max out in careers, so the progress is not limitless.

    Hobbies

    2014-07-23 17.57.59
    Hobbies are great tools for gaining experience and limited content. The availability of hobbies to a specific character are generally restricted based on what one has unlocked and the age of a character. In other words, after the age requirement is met, one might have to do achieve/build something to be able to perform that hobby.

    The biggest overall tip is to exhibit patience. The game runs in real-time, so there is always the temptation to use Lifestyle Points to expedite the action. Those Lifestyle Points could probably be best used elsewhere. Along those same lines, rushing to become a real estate mogul sounds logical – in the real world. In FreePlay, restraint is sometimes a good thing.

    In what could be a landmark ruling, the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) in the UK has ruled that an email ad for Dungeon Keeper, which stated that the game was free, was misleading to consumers.

    The ad read as such:

    GET DUNGEON KEEPER ON MOBILE FOR FREE! … DIG. DEVISE. DOMINATE. Build the most badass dungeon ever! Raise an army of diabolical minions and lay twisted traps to destroy any opponents foolish enough to set foot in your lair. MASTER THE HAND OF EVIL Cast powerful spells, pillage and plunder other players’ dungeons, and slap your imps around to make them work harder. A world of wicked fun is right at your fingertips. What are you waiting for, Keeper? Get it for FREE!

    The ad also featured a footnote stating “WIRELESS FEES MAY APPLY” and showed a well-developed dungeon. The complainant challenged that the ad was misleading as it omitted significant information.

    dungeonkeeper09EA argued that this was not the case, as the app does not require in-app purchases (IAPs) to be bought and that gameplay without IAPs is ‘not severely limited.’ EA also provided data on ‘spenders’ and ‘non-spenders,’ which they said showed that non-spenders were well represented in players who reached the middle and end of the game, in a time not substantially slower than spenders.

    EA went on to state that the “average player would expect a free-to-play title to be monetized with countdown timers and premium currency,” that they gave “balanced gameplay and provided players with a sense of progression and enabled resource management,” and that timers would be still be present in Dungeon Keeper even without any monetization.

    In response to this, the ASA assessed that EA had indeed branched three rules of the Advertising Code. Within the ruling, they commented that the ad could possibly mislead players into thinking that their progression would be “unhindered by unexpected and excessively onerous delays,” and that it should “have made clear what consumers could expect from the free elements and that in-app purchases would have a significant impact on gameplay.” Finally, they stated that “the game had the potential to restrict gameplay beyond that which would be expected by consumers and the ad did not make this aspect of the role of in-app purchasing clear.”

    As the ASA upheld the complaint, the ad cannot appear again in its current form. EA has also been warned by the ASA to ensure that the limitations of free gameplay and the role of IAPs are made clear in future ads.

    A sale has raced in for EA’s Need for Speed Most Wanted, bringing the price down to $0.99. No reasoning has been given for this sudden sale, nor is there any end date for this lower price, so those of you on the fence may not have much thinking time.

    It feels like forever ago when I first had the chance to play MECH (it was called M3CH back then). Despite being pre-alpha, I was actually quite impressed. It’s since been announced that the multiplayer mech combat/shooter has been picked up by Chillingo, and honestly I couldn’t be happier. I really liked what I played over a year ago, and from what I can see it’s only gotten better.

    There’s still some work to be done, of course, but the game has come a long way. The interface is a lot cleaner, there seems to be more map variety (and better looking maps), and you’ll have a dozen different giant robots and weapons to choose from when you jump online to shame your friends in online combat with up to eight players.

    MECH will be coming to the App Store later this summer.

    scroogeAh, the Great App Store Pricing Debate. For years people have been arguing over the cost of mobile games. What constitutes “too much?” Where’s the line when it comes to free-to-play monetization techniques? Should developers have deep discounts and temporary giveaways? Should consumers simply expect everything to go on sale and wait accordingly?

    The recent Dungeon Keeper debacle is a good example of this. Gamers and critics alike have railed against it for using various monetization techniques and associating itself with the classic PC strategy series, and many point to it as an unpleasant indication of where the video game industry (especially mobile) is headed. It’s an issue that’s almost as complicated as the initial Freemium vs. Premium debate; so let’s take a closer look at everything and try to make sense of it all.
