Epic Caves And Releases Fortnite On Google's Store, Has Weird Opinions About Android Apps

Epic Caves And Releases Fortnite On Google's Store, Has Weird Opinions About Android Apps

Fortnite was released on Android devices around 18 months ago, but only as a standalone download, not as part of Google’s Play Store. That puts apps at a big disadvantage because people only tend to download apps through an official store, so Epic has finally relented and made Fortnite available there.

In a statement sent to The Verge, Epic explained their decision came as a result of:

Pokémon Rumble Rush Ends Service In July

Pokémon Rumble Rush Ends Service In July

Mobile pocket monster battling game Pokémon Rumble Rush

Pokémon Go Makes It Easier For Players To Stay Put During The Pandemic

Pokémon Go Makes It Easier For Players To Stay Put During The Pandemic

Pokémon Go encourages players to go out into the world and meet each other, but that’s not the best idea when the world is trying to slow the spread of coronavirus covid-19. Developer Niantic has implemented temporary changes in the game to make catching Pokémon without going anywhere easier.

Along with postponing the Abra Community Day event originally scheduled for March 15, Niantic has made...

It's Literally Just Mowing (And Microtransactions, Ads, And Loot Boxes)

It's Literally Just Mowing (And Microtransactions, Ads, And Loot Boxes)

As soon as I heard about the game It’s Literally Just Mowing, I was like, “Hell yeah!” Unfortunately, the game is not literally just mowing.

It’s Literally Just Mowing, which arrived on iOS and Google Play last week, has been promoted as being about mowing some lawns, and that’s it. But once I played it, I found a mobile game like so many other mobile games, rife with microtransactions and...

The Latest Lego Game Is A Star Wars: Galaxy Of Heroes Clone, And That’s Fine

The Latest Lego Game Is A Star Wars: Galaxy Of Heroes Clone, And That’s Fine

Released on iOS and Android in 2015, EA’s Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is a role-playing game in which players collect Star Wars characters, form teams, and fight in short but satisfying turn-based battles. Lego Legacy: Heroes Unboxed, launching this Thursday for iOS, Android, and Windows, is the same thing, only we’re collecting Lego minifigures. I like collecting Lego minifigures.

The Latest Magic: The Gathering Game Is A Decent Card-Based Tower Defense

The Latest Magic: The Gathering Game Is A Decent Card-Based Tower Defense

If you want a pure Magic: The Gathering video game experience,

stick with Arena . Netmarble’s Magic: Manastrike, out now for iOS and Android, has two players dropping card-based creatures and spells into a two-lane battlefield in order to destroy their opponent’s towers. I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it.

Call it tower defense or tower offense or just plain strategy, this popular...

New Kingdom Hearts Game Is Coming To Mobile

New Kingdom Hearts Game Is Coming To Mobile

Square Enix tonight announced Project Xehanort, the working title for a new game coming this Spring for iOS, Android and Amazon.

In true bullshit Square Enix fashion, though, absolutely nothing was shown or described about the game, and the only online presence it has is a single screenshot and a competition for fans to try and guess the game’s name (like Kingdom Hearts Excelsior Abundance K3...

Adding Squirrel Girl To Marvel’s Contest Of Champions Doesn’t Seem Fair

Adding Squirrel Girl To Marvel’s Contest Of Champions Doesn’t Seem Fair

 Marvel’s Contest of Champions is a competitive mobile fighting game in which Marvel comics heroes and villains compete for dominance on a universal scale.

Epic’s New Hero-Collecting Game Seems Fine, Has Vague Connections To Fortnite

Epic’s New Hero-Collecting Game Seems Fine, Has Vague Connections To Fortnite

The most striking thing about Battle Breakers, Epic Games’ new free-to-play collectible character role-playing game for PC and mobile devices, is its rocking ‘90s cartoon style opening, complete with theme song lyrics. “Monsters from the sky / want us all to die / they’re hidin’ underground / now they must all be found.” Good stuff. The game itself? It’s okay.
