Spark – Build Your Own Universe

AppWatch

Have you ever asked yourself, “If I were a god, how would I shape the universe and all it contains?”

Well, a new gaming app called Spark can help you answer that question. Spark is an idle, incremental game that lets you take part in the creation of the universe.

In this very addictive game, you take on the role of a Spark of Life that immediately pops into existence and starts to blindly accumulate matter into itself to grow its influence over the vast Cosmos.

In this game, you’ll work to gather the raw materials around you to build and guide evolution. Like most classic idle games Spark consists mainly of buttons, progress bars, and timers. Tap the Matter button to begin amassing your influence. When you’re ready, swipe left to begin evolving.

While the concept is easy, you’ll quickly find that racking up your score to unimaginable numbers is super addictive. Along the way, you’ll have the opportunity to unlock permanent upgrades including additional resources and auto-incrementing when you’re away from the game.

So if you’re looking to relax for a few minutes or even just a few hours, Spark is the perfect meditative experience for you.

4 Things to Expect From Nintendo’s New Console

mario

So Nintendo has been teasing us for a while now by keeping the details of their new console, the NX, pretty much confidential. Finally, we’ve gotten more of an idea of what to expect in the NX thanks to a number of sources that have confirmed details to Eurogamer.

  1. It’s a totally new concept – The NX is going to be pretty different than what we’ve seen from Nintendo in the past. This new console will be both a handheld and a console you can play on your TV. Basically, the NX as a whole will work as a handheld console that has its own display, which doesn’t sound too far out there – Nintendo has always been known for handheld consoles. Well, what sets it apart is the two controller sections on the side, that can either be attached or detached as needed.

  2. It’s basically 2 consoles – Nintendo knows that sometimes you get home and want to play on the big screen, and the NX totally reflects that. Yup, you can connect the console directly to your TV through the dock station. So it’s kind of like 2-consoles-in-1.
  3. It’s going back to cartridges – Physical media will be in the form of cartridges instead of discs, although we’re pretty sure that you’ll still have the option of digital downloads. Sources have also shut down the rumors that the system will run on Android. Instead, we’re expecting the NX to run on a totally new operating system from Nintendo.
  4. It’ll be very different from Nintendo’s previous consoles – Nintendo won’t confirm everything until the console’s unveiling, which is expected to be this September. However, one thing that Nintendo has made apparent is that this will be much different than the Wii and Wii U. Nintendo president, Tatsumi Kimishima stated, “It’s something unique and different. It’s something where we have to move away from those platforms in order to make it something that will appeal to our consumer base.”

 

Regardless, it’ll be interesting to see a new console from Nintendo and the secrecy that has been behind it is only building up the suspense.

How Virtual Reality Took Over E3 This Year

By: Kassidy Coleman

While the video game industry isn’t entirely ditching traditional games, we definitely saw a whole lot of virtual reality at E3 2016. It’s not surprising that we’re seeing more VR – it’s fun, interactive, and most importantly, new. It’s safe to say that VR isn’t going away anytime soon. Hopefully you’re not sick of hearing about virtual reality, because here’s some of the big VR news from E3 2016.

Many big-name games will be available (or some exclusive to) VR – Bethesda Softworks announced that we’ll be able to play Fallout 4 and Doom on the HTC Vive. Other big name games that’ll be appearing for VR: Resident Evil 7, Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission, Batman Arkham VR, Final Fantasy XV VR Experience, and Star Trek: Bridge Crew. The fact that these big name games are going the virtual reality route shows that we can definitely expect more games to start showing up on virtual reality.

Alienware developed a virtual reality backpack –  It may look ultra-geeky, but it is a pretty practical solution for all those annoying cables and wires needed while wearing a VR headset. It’s not yet available for sale, and might not ever be, but they still showed it off at E3.  Seriously, if you want to wear the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, you have to be connected to USB, HDMI, and basically a desktop computer just to use it. Alienware’s backpack PC makes it so VR is more portable (at least as portable as it can be right now).

PlayStation finally gave us a release date for PlayStation VR – On Monday, Sony announced that their PlayStation VR headset will be available for sale on October 13 for $399. Games that will be available on PlayStation VR are Resident Evil 7, Batman Arkham VR, and Final Fantasy XV. We’re most excited to play Batman Arkam VR because they have you play as actual Batman. The best thing about this VR headset is it will be compatible with existing PlayStation 4 consoles and Move controllers.

We’re excited for virtual reality to be mainstream for video games, but think that the headsets need to be cheaper before that actually happens. Pretty much expect more games to start being available in VR.

The Game You Can Play Anywhere

App Review

If you enjoy playing mobile or PC-based games that actually involve some strategy, then you are going to love Total War Battles: Kingdom. The Total War franchise has been around for 16 years but this is the on-the-go version you have been waiting for.

We’ll get into the game play, but the major difference with this version is that you can hand off from one device to another and never lose progress. So that means if you are on your computer but have to hit the road, that doesn’t mean you have to stop playing. All you have to do is jump on your phone or tablet and keep enjoying the game. Pretty sick. Now let’s talk gameplay. It is a strategy game with tactical battles so you want to build a large, strong army. The battles are fought in real time against either the computer or real players from around the world. Now don’t worry, this game is not all about the battle. It is also about pure strategy. You need to build your own kingdom. Manipulate the land for special advantages like damming a river to make a lake then channeling the river so it irrigates your crops. The game even simulates real nature effects like water freezing in the Winter or forests growing in Spring. There is really no limit. The game itself received Editor’s Choice in the Apple Store and Best New Game in Google Play. So far it has been released world-wide in English, Spanish, French, and German.

Are you ready to start enjoying this game? You can download Total War Battles: Kingdom for free oniPad, iPhone, Android, PC or Mac by heading to your respective app store today.
