Mobile Browser Game of The Week

clickerheores-image

It’s been about two weeks but I am happy to announce that our Mobile Browser Game of The Week feature is back! In case you missed this feature here at MVGN, we have teamed up with Poki to bring you mobile games that you can play directly in your smartphones browser. It’s a nifty little alternative if you need to kill sometime at work (these games also work on your computer) or are in line somewhere waiting to be served. This weeks game is one called Clicker Heroes.

If you are unfamiliar with this game it’s a very basic game that hooks you right in and becomes quite addicting even though you literally press one button. Click, click, and click to defeat every evil creature! This one-button action game features extremely simple, addictive battles. You will encounter dangerous tarantulas, bees, mushrooms, and other foes in the forest. Spend gold on additional heroes to aid you in battle.

Sound too simple… It is and that’s the thing… This game is almost too simple for its own good but it also is very addicting. I sincerely thought I would never like what’s become known as a “cookie clicker” game but man was I wrong. This simple and addictive game is wrapped in some nice characters and despite not having any “real” gameplay, it scratches an itch that must be embedded in us somewhere. I kept asking myself, why am I still playing this- but I always kept coming back to it. I loved powering up my heroes and hiring new ones despite it being a one trick pony game.

If you have never played a cookie clicker game, expect one thing; to be just clicking the screen as many times as you can. Once you can get past that, you may become as addicted as we are (my son and I). Check it out and let us know what you think.

Enjoy.

Mobile Browser Game of The Week: My Dolphin Show 7

Screen Shot 2015-08-08 at 2.40.50 PM

It’s already the weekend everyone and you know what that means; time for MVGN to share our “Mobile Browser Game of The Week”. Every time I type that I imagine an announcer saying it over a giant loud speaker…. But I digress… Today’s Mobile Browser Game of The Week will likely be aimed at little ones as my girls LOVED this game. This week’s game is called My Dolphin Show 7 and has players controlling a dolphin in order to perform the perfect show. Like I said, this one is definitely aimed at the younger audience but it should keep them busy for a little while. Here is the description for the game:

Earn a perfect score the from the aquatic judges in My Dolphin Show 7! As the trainer, you will teach the dolphin how to rush, leap, and flip. You can catch fish during each round for extra points. Learn new stunts to win the trophy!

While I had not idea that there were 6 titles in the series, we just discovered this one recently. Although there isn’t too much depth in this one, there are a decent amount of things to collect and will keep you or your kids busy while waiting in line somewhere or if you’re trying to kill sometime at work. The good thing about these mobile browser games is that you can either play them directly on your smartphone without downloading a single item or in your work browser (just don’t get caught).

If you have little ones or are in love with dolphins, consider trying this one out. As always, thanks for reading and be sure to tune in next week when we bring you another (announcer voice) “Mobile Browser Game of The Week”.

Mobile Browser Game of The Week; Angry Birds 2

__thumb_-3-Angry Birds 2 key art

The birds have landed again my friends! Angry Birds 2 has finally hit the app store and my son and I can’t get enough of it. I know these lovable characters have stormed nearly ever facet of media but a good game is a good game and the Angry Birds series is awesome! Improving on the original in nearly every way, Angry Birds 2 has been a blast thus far and we only just begun (expect a TON of updates including more levels). There’s also more good news my friends, soon you will be able to play this one in your mobile browser!

With new towers to topple, pigs to pop and missiles to master, Rovio is thrilled to announce the launch of Angry Birds 2, the first sequel to the most downloaded mobile game series of all time.

While retaining the much-loved slingshot format, the visuals and gameplay of Angry Birds 2 have been overhauled from the ground up, with multiple stages in each level and spectacular new spells – including blizzards, magic ducks and even hot chili peppers – to wield against the pigs, rock the Destruct-O-Meter and earn even more birds. Fans also can challenge other gamers worldwide and, for the first time, choose their own fowl to fling.

Alongside returning characters Red, Chuck, Bomb and the infamous King Pig, joining the flock is Silver, a dazzling but strange young bird rescued from Pig City. Growing up in pig captivity, she has acquired porcine habits and an odd sense of humor. But her incredible flying skills – and unique understanding of piggy ways – make her a cheeky and powerful new member of the flock.

We don’t think Angry Birds is going away anytime soon so we my-as-well embrace this pop culture breaking series and check it out.

Mobile Browser Game of the Week

It’s that time yet again my lovely and awesome readers; time for us to reveal our “Mobile Browser Game of the Week”. We hope you have been enjoying this little weekly feature on our website as we love games and anything that interests us or catches our fancy, we always love to share. This weekly feature showcases some of the things that you can do either at work on your computer browser or on the go within your smartphone’s mobile web browser. It’s a fun way to kill some time while on break or if you get bored of the app store games that are available. This week’s game is one called Agario (maybe you have seen it on your mobile app store).

The object of Agario is this; players must consume smaller cells and dominate the world! In Agario, you must have an eat-or-be-eaten mentality to survive. Compete in fast, difficult skill modes like FFA, Teams, and Experimental. Split into two cells, or eject mass for a quick burst of speed. Basically eat smaller circles and stay away from the bigger ones (until you get bigger….then consume them all you want).

While the game doesn’t sound all that fun, it gets addicting especially since you begin to see other players pretty quick. Once you get yourself to a decent size, you will be chasing other players who are smaller than you while trying to avoid other players who have become quite good at the little browser game.

As we have mentioned in previous weeks, these games are often bite sized fun that help pass time. This one starts off basic as basic could be but turns out to be pretty addicting. If you check it out, let me know what you think.

Here is The First Angry Birds 2 Trailer

Here is the first Angry Birds 2 trailer for everyone to check out! The iOS and mobile standout is finally getting an “official” sequel and we will know more about the game very soon. The first one continues to top the mobile charts and we can’t wait to see what the new game will bring.

Angry Birds 2 will release on July 30th.

Enjoy the new trailer everyone!

Mobile Browser Game of The Week: Bad Ice-Cream 3

Screen Shot 2015-07-10 at 9.16.49 PM

It’s that time again my friends; time for us to share our mobile game of the week. If you are a normal reader to MVGN, we have been selecting some cool mobile games that you can play right in your mobile browser of your smart device. Today’s title that we chose to highlight is one called Bad Ice-Cream 3.

In Bad Ice-Cream 3, players simply break blocks of ice, move the hero around each level and eat the fruit in order to win. Bad Ice-Cream 3 lets you play as vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry frozen treats and come across pretty nice on the small screen of your mobile device. Players will face hungry animals and monsters in 40 icy levels. Create your own icy barriers for protection against the bad guys. What started out as a little boring quickly became a nifty little game that my family and I enjoyed playing in short bursts. We found it a bit easier to play on our computer because we liked the ease of control on the laptop.

Overall, Bad Ice-Cream 3 is one of the many selected Arcade Games over at Poki so be sure to check it out. It features a number of progressive levels that throw new obstacles to players as you play throughout the game. It gets addicting pretty quick (once you get into it) and I found myself saying “one more time” a lot with this pint sized game.

As with all of our games that we have been highlighting, this game won’t win any awards but it will provide some fun even if it’s in short bursts. If you have some extra time or need to kill some while you’re at work, check it out and see if it fits your fancy.

Enjoy.

Rayman Adventures Announced For Mobile Platforms

Rayman Adventures, the latest installment of the best-selling Rayman franchise, is currently in development for smartphones and tablets, by Ubisoft Montpellier. This eclectic new adventure will be available worldwide during fall 2015.

Rayman Adventures bring players on an odyssey where they will explore legendary worlds, from whimsical castles to the mythical islands of Olympus. They will enjoy an exciting mix between action and exploration in which they will be able to freely move around and about as they like through stunning environments.

The brand new Incrediballs make their first appearance in Rayman Adventures. Those little funny creatures will be the players’ partners in their epic adventures. They will have to seek out The Incrediballs, collect them, and unleash their powers to save the world.

From what we see in this awesome trailer, it looks pretty nice and we will welcome the title with open arms when it’s released. Like it or not, these Rayman games are outstanding on iPad and you should give them a try.

The game seems to be tailor made for mobile devices and we will be eager to see how this pans out for everyone involved.

Mobile Browser Game of The Week; Plants vs. Zombies

hp_pvz_franchise_logo

Another week, another update for our “mobile browser game of the week” column. These stories offer bite sized games that we have been playing around with in our mobile browser on our smart phones. The featured title this week is non other than, Plants vs. Zombies! Plants vs. Zombies is one of the best titles around and takes the tower defense style of play and injects a nice dose of humor. Pop Cap games really hit it out of the park when they released this one and now you can play the game in your mobile browser.

In case you live under a rock and have no idea what Plants vs. Zombies is, players are tasked with growing defensive plants in order to keep zombies away from your house! The undead have invaded your backyard and it’s your objective to stop them. Use your gardening skills to set up the perfect army of crops and stop those pesky Zombies. Sunlight and gold will help you beat the undead in Plants vs. Zombies. Different plants have different powers and by no time players will be planting a number of different plants in order to fend off the Zombie infestation.

It’s a novel concept and one that has not only taken the mobile gaming market by storm but has spawned numerous toys and collectables as well. I cannot visit my local video game retail store without seeing a number of Plants vs Zombies items. Who would’ve thought that these adorable characters would turn into such an phenomenon but we are pleased someone had the crazy idea planting around in their head. The appeal of the game is wide (basically everyone who try it out ends up loving it in some way) and we see this one sticking around for the long haul. We have already seen a sequel head to the mobile market and even a number of spin off games like Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare have seen the next gen treatment.
