"I'll be back..." Never did we think that this vague warning would apply to our humble iOS devices, but just like Sarah Connor, the T-800 has us in its crosshairs. Glu Mobile is proud to announce that they are partnering with Skydance Productions to bring a free-to-play interpretation of the Terminator universe to iOS in Summer of 2015.
Planned to coincide with next year's reboot of the film franchise entitled "Teminator: Genesis," the game will prominently feature mainstays from the series' existing mythos. It should be exciting to see if Glu can live up to the challenge of breathing new gaming life into this tried and true property. Luckily they should have plenty of time to make it happen. So until then, "Hasta la vista, baby."
Eternity Warriors 3 has gotten a version 2.0 update with a big new feature: player-versus-player combat!

Victories earn Arena Points to increase rank and get prizes, including exclusive PVP gear. There's a worldwide leaderboard, to go along with new tournaments and events.
Check out a trailer for the new PVP update below, available now on the App Store.
Glu Mobile is set to release it's free-to-play RoboCop game, which is based on the upcoming movie reboot, in January 2014. The title previously soft launched back in October, where players were looking at a third-person shooter that had cover-to-cover elements while avoiding snipers, and they were also tasked with rescuing hostages and battling enemy robots from the movie. Users also had the opportunity to call in drone strikers, perform super attacks, and use heat vision to find weak points.
I'm not down with the gangsters. I'm about as ungangster as you can get, mostly being a mild mannered English person who's quite happy to do the whole afternoon tea and cucumber sandwich thing.
Still, gaming is all about assuming a totally alien persona, right? In which case, Big Time Gangsta should be ideal for such a purpose.
Courtesy of Glu Mobile, Big Time Gangsta has just hit the app store for the grand price of absolutely nothing. This is a freemium game encouraging you to buy in-app purchases such as extra credits for various prices. Its visual style is kind of reminiscient of Contract Killer, another freemium game from Glu Mobile. Big Time Gangsta promises Mafia Wars style gameplay but with some more attractive visuals thanks to the 3D shootouts, which look pretty cool.
Take a look for yourself with the game trailer below, and let us know what you think of the game in the comments below.
Glu Mobile, well-known for their World Series of Poker games and games like the freemium Gun Bros., have released their newest freemium game, Contract Killer, to the App Store. This first person shooter has you accepting contracts to take out a variety of targets. You play as a stationary sniper, looking and zooming around the levels to find and take out your targets before they escape or kill you. Successfully completing a mission nets you money and experience to improve your weapons and stats, so you can steady your weapon longer, for example. To accept contracts, you have to use Energy, which can be conveniently - for Glu's bottom line, at least - restored by purchasing food items to replenish energy, which you have to spend Credits on. How do you get Credits? Through in-app purchases, of course.
The game features 17 Story mode missions, as well as an unlimited number of Random Missions across 5 locales for theoretically endless replay value as you level up your character and buy new weapons and ammo to use on missions. Obviously, there's in-game currency that is used to help generate revenue, and similar to Gun Bros., there are 2 different forms of currency you can purchase to help you in your assassination attempts. You can buy in-game money ranging from $1.99 for $12,000 of in-game money to $49.99 for $350,000 of in-game money. You can also buy credits, ranging from $1.99 for 30 Credits, to $49.99 for 950 Credits. This is a similar model to how Gun Bros. worked, and Glu is likely hoping for similar success with this model for Contract Killer. Contract Killer also comes with Game Center support for leaderboards and achievements, and is a universal app for the iPad as well.
Glu have released plenty of traditional paid apps on the App Store, but appear to be embracing the freemium model between this, Gun Bros., Deer Hunter Challenge, and World Series of Poker Hold'em Legend. It will be interesting to see if they continue to embrace the traditional paid model for their other future releases, or if they follow the ngmoco:) model of just releasing freemium apps, or if they do something similar to Gameloft's freemium model, by continuing the traditional paid app model, but offering free downloads, and offering to unlock the full app via in-app purchase. Check out a trailer and screens of the game below, available now.
Glu has a great history of casual games. They have produced one of our favorite casual iPhone games including Glyder, Beat It!, Bonsai Blast. Today they have released a new casual game and their first with Open Feint integrated, Jump O' Clock.
In Jump O' Clock, you play a tiny robot with magnetic feet in a Steampunk world trying to climb as high as possible. You do this by jumping from rotating gears and jumping off of the wall.
Along the way you can gather bolts that are scattered around the levels. The more bolts you gather, the more energy you get. If you gather enough energy, you can activate a super jump that nearly instantly bumps up your travelled height by a few hundred feet.
Jump O Clock marks the first game from Glu Mobile to integrate the leading social gaming network, Open Feint. It allows you to track your score and achievements against your friends and everyone else in the world.
