It seems martial artists come in all shapes and sizes these days. Bulkypix's new Kung Fu Rabbit takes platforming into the realm of Asian mysticism, and though the adventure might start out in grasshopper mode, the forces of evil soon call upon a true gaming master.
- If there's one thing Funzio's new Kingdom Age isn't, it's a new age. This role-playing hybrid for Google+ contains just about every staple from social gaming you can imagine - and it could use a few technical tweaks - but the game still manages to present players with one of the more addictive campaigns currently available online.
- It's no secret that the mobile-gaming market is a crowded place, and eking out a niche on the App Store is no easy task. So, Supercell can perhaps be forgiven for the aggressively generic title of their new strategy adventure, Pets vs Orcs. The game makes a great first impression, but is this animal kingdom built to last?
- Packaging hardcore gameplay with casual sensibilities seems like a no-brainer when it comes to developing for Facebook. 6waves has just released their latest adventure, Toy Attack, onto the platform, borrowing from an assortment of real-time strategy (RTS) games whilst simplifying its mechanics in ways social gamers can easily relate to. The experience is easy to jump into, but the hobbled-together design squeaks and screeches at every turn.
- Whether it can be attributed to a flooding of the market or simply apathy for ethics in gaming, cloning and outright creative theft seem rampant in the casual scene. Huwa IP Holdings now follows along in this questionable trend with a game so utterly similar to Cityville, you might just forget which game you're actually playing.
- Virtual wars are the fuel that feed gaming fires. We simply can't seem to get enough simulated combat. Of course, nothing's better than sharing destruction with friends, and Social Point has answered the call with Social Wars for Facebook. Is this military adventure worthy of a medal, or will players find themselves in a futile conflict?
- If context and substance are what you're looking for, then DarkOrbit will immediately dull your interest. Without so much as a hint of plot to nudge players along, the game throws a laundry list of quests before you, along with an overcrowded screen full of features that are either poorly explained or not explained at all. When your first reaction as a player is to run off to the game's forums for help, it's a clear indication that not all is well in the universe.
- Adding to publisher King.com's collection of other "Saga" games, Hoop de Loop Saga brings both the familiar and fresh together for a healthy dose of casual fun. The formula is based on gem-matching favorites such as Magnetica and Zuma, but the balance, level of challenge, and well-designed power-ups make this one of the most enjoyable installments currently available on Facebook.
