Be vewy, vewy qwiet. I’m hunting wunners featuwing wabbits, and luckily, it’s duck season wunner season. Zynga has unveiledLooney Tunes Dash!: a runner featuring Bugs Bunny, Tweety Bird, Road Runner, and more.
Following on from fan feedback, the developers have aimed to give players a game that has a sense of progression – meaning that, unlike many runners, levels do have a completion point. By completing levels, players can unlock new characters and landscapes iconic to fans of the animation classics.
Looney Tunes Dash! is set to release in select countries (and Tazmania?) this week in Acme’s Apple’s App Store. For those asking “What’s up Doc?”, more details are set to be announced in the coming months. Hopefully in the form of a note attached to a falling anvil.
Rogue Play has announced that it is partnering with Warner Bros to create a game based on the upcoming Godzilla movie, titled Godzilla – Smash3.
The game will feature RPG and puzzle elements combined with a 3-D environment with rich graphics. Warner Bros Chief Digital Officer Thomas Gewecke likes the partnership. “As the film stomps into theaters, Godzilla – Smash3 captures a monster-sized experience on the small screen in a great new way,” he says. “We’re lucky to work with a group like Rogue Play who understands what makes ‘Godzilla’ special and can channel that into a great-looking and fun game for our fans.”
Godzilla – Smash 3 is due out at the same time the movie, in May 2014.
With this one app, is Warner Bros showing that it can change with the times?
So far, you can buy and watch Gossip Girl, Big Bang Theory, or The Vampire Diaries episodes the day after they air in the US, as well as download them for offline watching, or purchase the whole season at once. The first episode of each show is free, and then will cost $2.99 for standard definition, or $3.99 per high definition episodes. The full season price looks to cost a bit more than iTunes, as well.
Is this Warner Brothers offering something new, or is this just another way to try and lock up your content in a separate walled garden? I’m not seeing much of an advantage to using this app over iTunes, aside from watching the first episode for free. What do you think?
App Features Include:
• Offline playback: Download episodes directly to your device to playback at anytime
• Steaming playback: Stream an episode instantly over Wi-Fi
• Multiple languages: Watch the episodes in your language of choice
• Real-time news: Live Twitter and Facebook updates
• Explore WB catalog: Browse other app editions created by Warner Bros.
• Localized audio dubs and dynamic subtitles are available in certain languages.
A good many people have been enjoying collecting starites since Scribblenauts Remix first hit the App Store. It’s a pretty nifty game, after all. The down-side to games like this is that they eventually end once each level has been completed. There’s always the fun of revisiting completed stages in order to see what other bizarre ways its puzzles can be solved, but once it’s done it’s pretty much done. Until the developers release more levels for it, that is.
5th Cell has just made a new batch of 20 levels available for purchase, on top of the preexisting 50. I’m sure there are at least a few players out there who’ve been wishing there was more for them to do since they ran out of content, and an announcement like this should certainly brighten their day. Now they’ve got 20 more levels to bombard with adjectives and nouns as they attempt to grab that starite and have a good laugh in the process.
The level pack is available right now via in-app purchase, and will only set players back $0.99
