Pocket Gamer Awards 2012 – Connect2Media Receive 2 Nominations

14 Feb

It’s that time of year again! When the red carpets are getting unfurled, the champagne is being poured, and envelope manufacturers are being rushed off their feet. That’s right, it’s awards season.

This year, Connect2Media has been nominated for not one, but two games in the Mobile Game of the Year category in the 2012 Pocket Gamer Awards. Both Farm Frenzy 2 and Square King both received nominations in the category, so now it’s just a game of wait and see. Both nominations mean a lot to us, and it’s truly an honour to be in a category that includes so many other incredible games, and to have been nominated in the awards in the first place!

To take a look at all the nominations, head over to Pocket Gamer’s 2012 Awards page here

Da-da, da-da, dadadadada …. It’s JAWS!

25 Jul

Did you know…

  • JAWS broke box office records on its release in 1975, grossing more than $470 million worldwide!
  • The film received universal acclaim and even holds a rare 100% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes
  • Tiny actors were used in a miniature shark cage to give the illusion of massive sharks
  • Spielberg got scared that his crew were going to chuck him in the water at the end of the final scene, so simply didn’t turn up! It has since become a tradition for Spielberg to be absent when the final scene of a film he directs is being filmed

 

 

 

 

Jaws on mobile

Stay out of the water this summer, as Connect2media is bringing the terrifying blockbuster JAWS to a smartphone, feature phone or tablet near you! Roger Davies, Chief Commercial Officer, Connect2Media said about the partnership with Universal:

“JAWS is one of the greatest film franchises ever, not only smashing box office records but making significant waves in the film industry. It is much more than a movie; it is a truly iconic part of popular culture. We expect this game to take a huge bite out of the market when it’s launched.”

 

 

 

 

Get JAWS on your phone’s game store, or buy from the Android market:

Spotlight on… Call of Atlantis

10 Jun

Atlantis is the legendary lost civilisation first mentioned by the famous philosopher Plato as far back at 360BC. Nobody knows the supposed location for sure, with theories ranging from Antarctica toIreland, and Sweden to the Bermuda Triangle! Even today, historians can’t decide whether it was ever real at all, or simply myth.

One thing that we do know for definite about Atlantis however, is that it makes a pretty addictive mobile video game!

Call of Atlantis is a casual puzzle game with a combination of match-three, hidden object and adventure, with of course that fascinating twist of Ancient history.

Originally on PC, the title has clocked up a staggering 10,000,000 downloads, and more than 35,000,000 people play the browser version. To put this into perspective, if you laid that many mobile phones end to end, you’d get halfway round the world!

Now on Mobile!

When the game was brought to iPhone it proved just as popular, hitting the app charts in numerous countries. And this month, the blockbuster title comes to JAVA, BREW and Android, so that you too can play the game on the move!

“An exceptionally polished and professional match-3 port” AppSafari.com

Igor Bukhman, Co-Founder and President of Playrix, who developed the game, said:

“We are very excited to see Call of Atlantis launch on different platforms including Android. From new exciting mini-games designed for touch screen to advanced quality standards as far as game graphics are concerned, Call of Atlantis promises to be a rewarding gaming experience for anyone who decides to give it a try.”

So remember to look out for the game on your phone, and tell us over on Facebook what you think of it!

How many mobile games do you have installed?

13 Sep

We all enjoy mobile gaming. Playing a great game on a handset is pure portable fun. Even better, there is a constant stream of new games becoming available for all types of mobile. However, combine this with an increase in mobile storage capacity in recent years and it is possible to rack up a large game collection.

So how many games do you currently have on your handset?!

It would be interesting to see the average number of mobile games installed, so we have setup the below poll!

The poll will stay active for 7 days from the time this post goes live.
