A… Match 3 App? Evolve Makes Things So Complicated

By Alec Meer on January 30th, 2015.

noooooooooooooo

I really want to like Evolve (official site). I’ve dabbled a little in the beta, and while it doesn’t have anything like the character or tension of Left 4 Dead, a whole lot about it felt good. I just can’t say the same of what’s happening outside the game. There’s been too much focus on too much DLC before the game’s even with us, and now it turns out there’s a match-3 companion game for telephones, which will accelerate progress in the game proper. It’s free, but you can pay real money to boost your progress in the mobile game. Which will then boost your progress in the main game. And. Well. No. God. Why.

Remarkable! You can get phones in your eyes now? I must consider getting one.

New Bioshock Game. Ish.

By Alec Meer on February 12th, 2008.

Today is Bad Photoshop Day on RPS
Actual game may vary – i.e. not look like our crappy mocked-up screenshot.

Sorta. It may not be Bioshock 2, but a new Bioshock title is indeed on the way – for mobile phones (they’re like PCs, but tiny and with fewer buttons).

Side-scrolling platformer? Ooh, probably. Either that or just an extended version of the Pipemania-inspired hacking mini-game. No actual details yet, but maybe, just maybe, we do live in a world where a 256 colour, 128×128, four-button cellphone game that includes shocking twists, discussion upon the nature of self and references to Ayn Rand could actually happen.
