Pokémon Shuffle Mobile is indeed headed to Android and Apple iOS devices. The popular Pokémon title is headed to the mobile space later this year and makes a ton of sense to us. The game seems to be tailor made for mobile devices and we will be eager to see how this pans out for everyone involved. Check out the first trailer Pokémon Shuffle Mobile above and let us know if you plan on downloading it.
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.

It’s that time again my friends, time for MVGN to tell you what mobile browser game we have been checking out. For the past couple of weeks we have been showcasing some mobile games that you can play directly on your mobile device in its mobile web browser (that’s a lot of “mobile”)… This week’s title features Disney’s new movie Inside Out. Inside Out will no doubt light the theaters on fire with its funny characters and classic Disney charm and these mobile web browser games may just help you or your kiddos pass some time while waiting in line at the grocery store or while getting out of school.
It’s that time again my friends, time where we bring you our mobile game of the week! We have been running this little feature for the past couple of weeks so we thought we would highlight another mobile browser game. Sure there are a ton of games for your smartphone BUT if you’re looking for something to play that you don’t have to download, just open up your mobile browser and check out some of these titles.
So about a month ago, I introduced a new feature on MVGN stating that my newest time killer is playing games in my mobile browser. It’s a nice break from the normal iOS games (although I LOVE me some iOS gaming) and if you’re standing in line somewhere and want to play a quick round of something, playing games in your mobile browser could be just what you need for some entertainment. It may not be for everyone but I have enjoyed it between waiting at the post office or waiting in line at the store so I thought I would share. Today’s “Mobile Game of the Week” is a game called Happy Wheels. Happy Wheels is a fun distraction and is anything but “happy”. The clever spin on words has players trying to maneuver around a number of courses but at the risk of losing your own limbs…. Yes you read that right; players will lose limbs in this crazy “physics racing” game.
Blizzard has announced that its uber-popular CCG Hearthstone has reached 30 million players worldwide. The game, which is a favorite by yours truly, just headed to the iPhone and has converted over quite well. With numerous expansions and collectible cards, we don’t see this one slowing down anytime soon. Congrats to Blizzard and please keep up the great work!
So my latest craze has been playing games in my mobile browser. I love downloading stuff on my iPhone but lately I have been logging in and playing games on the go directly from my browser. In light of my recent addiction, I have decided to do a weekly feature showcasing some games I have been playing and maybe you guys can check it out. I thought it would be something interesting for everyone so be sure to check it out and let me know what you think. This week’s “Mobile game of the Week” is UpHill Rush 6.
The discovery of the Gortys Project fuels a madcap race to find just what the Atlas Corporation was up to prior to Hyperion’s takeover of Pandora. Our intrepid heroes are not the only ones on the trail. Vault Hunters, Bounty Hunters, Vasquez, and a giant monster thing with a mouth that looks like a… well, you’ll see… are all in pursuit. And to complicate matters, Rhys is being haunted by visions of a dead despot AND what Vaughn looks like without his shirt on. Can Fiona and Sasha hold everything together? That’s up to you.
Here is a FFXIV: Heavensward Collector’s Edition Unboxing video for everyone to check out. Although it’s a fantastic unboxing, sadly it’s not me who is the one doing the unboxing for this collector’s edition. The game was developed by Square Enix with Naoki Yoshida as producer and director, and was released worldwide on August 27, 2013. The game is currently available in Japanese, English, French, German, and Mandarin Chinese; a Korean version is in development with a planned 2015 release date.
