Play Bold Poker With iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch With This Innovative App

Posted by on December 7th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Because plain old card stock so last century!

The Bold Poker developer aims to make playing poker together in a room super iPhone friendly with this new app. Don’t have a deck of cards? Hate shuffling and dealing when it’s your turn? Bold Poker might be the answer. This innovative app looks odd but is certainly compelling, especially with the amazing art design on it.

How it works:

♠ Put a device (iPad is best) in the middle of the table for the board cards
♠ Each player opens Bold Poker and joins the game with their own iPhone or iPod
♠ Move the dealer button on the board device to deal a card to each player
♠ Drag the button to the player with the highest card to deal the first hand

If you want to get crazy and have a few extra iPhones or iPod touches you can:

♠ Use an extra iPhone or iPod touch for the button (moderately crazy)
♠ Use five iPhones or iPod touches to display the board (borderline insane)
♠ Use two iPhones per player to display each pocket card (off the hook)

Gameloft Releases Texas Poker for Prizes – Win Real Prizes Playing Poker

Posted by on November 1st, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Gameloft has release a new poker game, Texas Poker for Prizes. This free to play game has one huge interesting twist. Just by playing the game, you have the chance to win some real world prizes — TVs, trips to Las Vegas, and more.

While that’s the hook, the game does have other things going for it. For one, when playing online you can play up to four tables at once. Very useful when you are waiting on 8 other slow players to decide their move. It also has the ability to support Airplay where the poker table can be displayed on your TV (via Apple TV) while each players hands are shown on their handheld devices in a local multiplayer game.

Read The Full Review »

Poker has kind of taken the country by storm over the past several years. It’s made its way into all manner of media, obviously including video games. So what makes this particular digital rendition of card-based gambling worth checking out? Quite a lot, it turns out.

All of the expected options are available in World Series of Poker, such as Texas Hold ‘Em and even Omaha Poker, but there’s a slew of more social-oriented features that are actually pretty awesome. Every player has an account that automatically tracks virtually every aspect of their games; thus helping them to better understand their own play style through statistics as well as allowing them to show off their skills with a number of different trophies such as special tournament rings.

It’s easy to tell what a player needs to work on (i.e. too much folding, not enough folding, etc.) at a glance, but what’s also cool is that really good players can gain access to a special league of games that are only available to others that have earned the same honor. In other words, seriously good poker players won’t have to worry about finding themselves in a game full of casual players. It’s also easy to find, invite, and join games that are already in progress. Each game is represented with a table, and players have only to tap an open seat to invite a buddy or two. And it’s just as easy to join a game.

I wasn’t able to procure any pricing information, but World Series of Poker will be available on the App Store “soon.”

The social gaming giant, Zynga, just released the next app in their casino gaming line on Friday, Zynga Slots. With little marketing at all, the game rose in the free iPhone game rankings from #105 (Sunday) to #6 (Monday night). BTIG Media‘s Rich Greenfield, an analyst for the company, made some interesting observations on Zynga’s casino gaming line and what it may do to their valuation.

Greenfield observed they incredible and lasting success of Zynga Poker. The game was released in 2007 and continues to be the #7 top grossing app on iOS and accounted for 16% of Zynga’s revenue in Q1. He see slots as another easily monetized game and notes how Zynga competitors are already fairing in that space,

“Both the monetization and staying power of poker is intuitive. For slots games, it is a little less intuitive. However, Zynga competitors have been very successful in the space – illustrating the addictive nature of the game.”

Greenfield also noted that the demographic Zynga is going after with a slots game is a demographic it knows well – women over 35. For Farmville, two-thirds of its player base are women and 50% of those players are over 35. Slotomania, a slots competitor, has similar numbers (two-thirds women and two-thirds over 35).

BTIG Media and Entertainment Research believes that there’s option value in Zynga right now in terms of the legalization of online gambling,

“We continue to believe that there is significant option value in Zynga for the legalization of online gambling, which is not reflected in ZNGA shares…We believe there will be gambling potential on nearly all of Zynga’s games. However, the most immediate traction will be in traditional casinos games.”

Glu invited us into their offices again yesterday to take a look at some of their upcoming games. We saw some old favorites, some early prototypes, and a really innovative take on music games.

Glyder 2

First up, let’s get what I really came to see out of the way… I finally got my hands on Glyder 2. It’s still early for that title — just a few builds past first playable, but this exciting sequel to easily my favorite Glu game ever is already looking good. As we mentioned previously there will be customization of your character available — both in the form of the suit she wears and the wings she uses. The different wings give you slightly different skills — climbing, turning, speed, etc. Not enough to make a huge difference in the game, but enough to be noticeable.

There will be six or seven new worlds to explore. And in addition to the crystal collection aspect of the previous game, you will also have multiple point quests to go on. Glu heard from the passionate users of the game that they wanted more of everything in the first one and new things to try. And we’re going to get it.

Take a look at this hands-on video of Glyder 2 from Slide To Play:

One of the most exciting bits of news about Glyder 2 was that Glu have committed to providing multiple free updates and expansions to the game after it launches. No specific time frame was given, but if the game remains popular, it could be for a good while.

Glyder2Glyder2 (1)Glyder2 (3)


Glyder 2 will be out by the end of the year, and I can’t wait.

Beat It

Beat It takes a new twist on the music game genre. This game actually makes you listen to the music. It turns it from a rhythm tapping game into more of a puzzle game. The result is a very compelling game that I found very hard to put down.

The idea behind Beat It is that you listen to a short 3 instrument rhythm track and you have to re-create it on a sequencer board. You do this by tapping cells to turn on / off that instrument for that beat. You can switch from listening to your current attempt to the original anytime, which is nice to see where you are missing notes. When you have the notes for an instrument in a particular bar correct, they start to twinkle letting you know you can go on to another. The game ramps up from 3 instruments and 4 bars to I believe 7 instruments and 6 bars.

Take a look at this hands-on video from Slide To Play:

It should also be mentioned that this game has some amazing animated art. Your game is separated into multiple worlds and there is a story unfolding behind your sequencer grid in each world. Before each new level you see a little part of the story and as your music clips get more complex so does the story behind you.

In addition to the multiple instruments, there are 5 different instrument sets that are used in the game. These are also available to use in the free play mode that lets you create your own tracks. In a future update you will be able to share your tracks with others.

Beat It 2
Beat It 1Beat It 3

Beat It should be available sometime this month.
