Cabals

PRESS EMAIL

Cabals: Magic & Battle Cards has been updated on Android, iOS and Windows Phone devices bringing new matchmaking, chat and more! New players now face online AI as they start their life in Online Matches. They will then face players of a more similar ability than the past. Likewise this means the top players are now going to experience consistently closer and more challenging matches!

In the War of Cabals the weekly rating reset is improved and chat re-enabled. Players are rewarded more for having reached higher leaderboards by having their rating reset to the lower limit of that leaderboard. The Cabals Community can once again send secret messages to each other in game. This allows players to try to psych out their opponents, arrange Friend Matches and of course concede defeat in that sportsmanship like way with “gg!”

The update also allows compatibility with the Steam version of Cabals for Mac and Windows that is coming to Early Access soon. More information about the PC version can be found here.

Kids Learn: Explore and Match, the game aimed at helping teach kids .. well, learn, explore, and match, came out last week on the Play Store.

PRESS EMAIL

We released a mobile, educational game for children which we named Kids Learn: Explore and Match. We made free version only for Android. Basically it was our idea to combine learning with amusement. Kids Learn: Explore and Match is dedicated for 3-5 years old children that’s why it is very simple. However sometimes parents will have to help toddlers to find a right solution. And we hope we did good. I attached some screens.

Short description of the game:

The main objective of Learn Kids: Explore and Match free app dedicated to small children, pre-schoolers aged 3 and over is to educate through fun. This educational game develops their memory, logical thinking capability, ability to associate facts and even fluidity and precision of movements. The game also extends the vocabulary range.

ARK: Survival Evolved got a pretty big update, and is currently on sale for $17.99.

Scorched Earth Key Features:

  • Where’s the Water?: Players must re-learn what it means to survive and thrive in a harsh desert environment depleted of water resources.

  • Explore a New World: Scorched Earth is an entirely new map, composed of seven unique, desert themed biomes – dunes, high desert, mountains, canyons, badlands, oasis and the ever-dangerous dragon trench – each with their own aesthetics, resources and ecosystems, and littered with ruins, geysers, and intricate ancient cave systems.

  • Craft More Than 50 New Items: Discover new outfits and structures to protect from the heat, and new tools to help survive in the harsh environment. Carry temporary shelter with you using tents, employ whips, boomerangs and flamethrowers for ‘defense,’ wind turbines to generate clean power, and water wells and oil refineries to harvest scarce resources, among many new mechanics!

  • Tame New Creatures: The desert’s biomes are filled with fantastical new creatures, many of which can be tamed. Lead a caravan of the camel-like Morellatops, or rain fire down on your enemies from the back of a Wyvern. Just mind your step in the vast desert, or you might attract a Death Worm!

  • Conquer New Challenges: Prepare yourself for dangerous electrical storms, blinding sand storms, befuddling heat stroke, and unleash the power of the Obelisks to come face-to-face with ARK’s deadliest boss creature to date – the ferocious Manticore!

  • Travel Back to the Island: Take characters, favorite creatures and items from Scorched Earth back to the Island, standing out from the crowd and making your Island-dwelling friends jealous with all of the amazing new goodies and secrets you find in the Desert.

Zombie CIty Defense 2

Tactical/strategy defense game, Zombie City, released this week.

PRESS RELEASE

Zombie City Defense 2 is a tactical/strategy defense game. Become completely immersed as the game is VR supported but not necessary and can be played on any PC. In a near future, the world has been devastated by a virus turning most of humanity into zombies. You are part of the Iron Corps, the last defense of civilization traveling the world to find resources, save people, and find answers. Prepare your army before infiltrating a new area – choose carefully when setting your infantry units, vehicles, and special abilities. A zone’s weather, terrain relief, and even the amount of buildings around you will greatly influence your strategy. Deploy your units on the field, improve your base, invest in abandoned buildings and fortify them to place your snipers, harvest old hospitals, or call a bombing raid to destroy a bridge or perhaps the whole block!
