If you are the local cat lady or cat man and you have an iPad, you are in luck today. Friskies has unveiled some weird apps that are games for cats. The games include Cat Fishing, Tasty Treasure Hunt, and Party Mix-Up.
If you are an old school gamer that was around back when the Atari was the game console to have you will appreciate this app. I really didn’t have any idea that back in the Atari days there were 100 games to be had.
YouTube user ProtoDojo wanted a more precise way of controlling his favorite iPad game Reckless Racing. Fortunately for him, he has the modding chops to actually do something about it. So he came up with RoboTouch, which now allows him to play games on the iPad using a NES controller.
The other day, Lambert spotted a brief clip of Super Mario Bros. updated with modernized audio. Turns out the same guy put together a video with a bunch of other games updated with “ULTRA NEXTGEN AAA Sound Design,” as he calls it.
…no not so much the samaritan part – the UNREAL ENGINE part. Honest to god, the graphics in this newly released real-time demo footage running on Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 3 is the best looking bit of game engine footage I’ve ever laid eyes on.
As addictive as the seemingly simple but obviously complicated Angry Birds game is, I wonder what will be next. It seems that creating new levels and birds isn’t what that will be. I think Tiny Wings is where it will be happening next.
Ever wanted to make your own 8-bit video games? Well thanks to this nifty add-on for the Arduino, you’ll be able to create all sorts of 8-bit fun for yourself.
The Gameduino is a shield that plugs into an Arduino board, adding on an old-school graphics and sound – perfect for making your own retro-style games.
The board offers a 400×300 video output which works with any standard VGA monitor, and handles all sorts of retro graphical features like a 512×512 pixel character background, pixel-smooth X-Y scrolling backgrounds with wraparound, and a variety of foreground sprite capabilities for hundreds of sprites, as well as collision detection.
This clever illustration by Fabian Gonzalez is chockful of famous video game characters – all boiled down to their most minimal essence.
All have to say is that I stared at this image for about 20 minutes, and was only able to figure out about 40 of them, but I’m sure that if I kept thinking real hard I could get most of them right.
I made the unfortunate mistake of buying my first (and only) netbook PC about 2 months before the iPad came out. Once I got my iPad, the little ASUS netbook started gathering plenty of dust, and I’ve been wondering what I’m going to do with it.
The last time I took my kids to the movies, we saw a preview for the animated flick Rio and it looked cool. Now each time we see a bird on TV my daughter reminds me I promised to take her to see that movie with the bird that can’t fly.
These blurry screenshots made their way onto a recent German television program, and looks like they could be the first images from the hotly-anticipated sequel to the mobile gaming juggernaut, Angry Birds.
Aled Lewis’ has done it again. The geeky mashup artist took a bunch of video game characters in their pure pixelated form and placed them in pictures of the real world. I’m sure that this concept has been explored a hundred times before – I think I might have made a few when I was a kid – but I think it’s the simplicity of Lewis’ chosen backgrounds that makes these pictures super effective.
Ever played a game of Sudoku? I went through a phase a little while back where I was obsessed with the game. I love solving puzzles, and these fancy number games were rather addictive. I made it a goal to be able to beat them without any sort of note-taking.
