(SNAPPshot is a daily blog-like news piece about the mobile gaming industry. A “snapshot” of the past 24 hours if you will. It’s basically an excuse for Noen to ramble on about anything and everything that has to do with nothing.)
Goooooood Friday morning/afternoon/evening SNAPP Family!!!! Time to pour a cup of coffee, open up a Mountain Dew, or crack a beer and see what the hell has been going on the past 24 hours…….
Well, the “App Storm” is finally over and the App Store has been updated. Apple featured some really good indie games last week on their main page. This week?…….not so much. Sure, there are some solid titles on there. The Guides Axiom, The Human Age, Doomwheel to name a few, but there were so many more great games that would have really did well if they would have gotten the attention. I guess I’m never going to agree with every game featured and should be glad for the games that did get the spot. Hopefully in time, SNAPPZILLA will be relevant enough to make an impact on the industry.
We had a few bits of news in between the new releases yesterday….
A weird one was Mad Head Games’s new title, Monster Loops released on the App Store only to get pulled about 45 minutes later. I’m not sure why. Maybe it was just an accidental release? Who knows. But, it was weird though. We’ll let you know if we hear anything.
Another piece of news that I know nothing about is Butterscotch Shenanigans new game. Yesterday they announced the title of their next game called, “Scuffle Buddies”. Yup. That’s it. We have no clue what it’s about, when it’s releasing, if there are going to be unicorns in it, nothing. Soooooo, yea. GO NEWS!!
Hondune Games released the official trailer for their upcoming game, ReCharge RC. You can see the trailer here.
We did have a few updates yesterday……
Hitman Sniper received a big update with a Just Cause mashup Special Event. For now, you can tether enemies to walls, shoot sticky mines, and get the new rifle.
Recently released, Guns, Cars, Zombies! got a huge update with a new PVP arena, 6 new weapons, more vehicle upgrades, and an updated vehicle evolution system.
Crossy Road received the “Space Update” with 9 new figurines if you’re still playing that game.
Alright. That’s about it for your SNAPPshot for Thursday. Keep an eye out for this week’s SNAPP Roundup coming out tonight! And keep on swiping…….
