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!

No getting board of these games – Pocket Gamer Awards part 2

21 Nov

It’s part 2 of our Pocket Gamer Awards showcase this week, and this time we’re looking at another winner, 365 Board Games!

A single game pack with bags of value that offered up to 7 games, user customisable rules and 3 levels of difficulty, the game was a massive hit for board game lovers everywhere. As Pocket Gamer put it,

“the sheer range of content on offer will keep mobile boardgamers grinning.”

And it certainly had them grinning enough to give the game a bronze award. However, they did point out there was some room for improvement so we hit the drawing board and came back with the much improved 365 Board Games 2 in beautiful high definition!

This sequel will not only feature up to 10 classic board games including Snakes and Ladders, Ship Wars (Battleships), Four in a Row, Chess, Backgammon, Ludo, Checkers, Reversi, Nine Men’s Morris, and Tic Tac Toe, but we’ve also created a multiplayer option so you can play with up to 3 friends on the same phone!

Each game has fully customisable rules, and with improved HD graphics, it’s the perfect Christmas board game collection to play during the holiday season. In fact, we know that 365 Board Games 2 is so cool that you’ll want to tell everyone about it, so now you can brag about your wins on Facebook!

The game will be available from December via your mobile operator game portal or on the Android market place, so make sure you check it out and never be caught without an entertaining board game this festive season!

If you need any more convincing, here’s a sneak peek at some of the games on offer:

Prizes and awards galore – Pocket Gamer Awards part 1

11 Nov

It’s been an exciting few weeks here at Connect2Media!

We gave away some prizes for our Top Trumps competition, with the main prize, an iPad 2, going to lucky James from High Wycombe. We also received some games awards from Pocket Gamer! So, we’ve decided to do an early yearly recap and highlight some of the games what were given awards, as well as some upcoming sequels that are coming out soon.

Let’s kick off with a spot light on Farm Frenzy 2, which was awarded a Silver Pocket Gamer Award for Android and a Bronze one for Mobile.

This is the sequel to the smash hit Farm Frenzy and tests your management skills in running a farm. But it’s so much than just a farming sim! Farm Frenzy 2 is addictive, thrilling and with 90 story-based levels gives you hours of arcade fun! You start off small, with some chickens and other bits, but as you progress through the different levels, you can grow grass, buy chickens and feed them, collect eggs and take your produce to market. Once you’ve made a sale, you can spend your earnings to expand your farm, or buy tasty treats for yourself. As Pocket Gamer put it:

“Because everything needs to be managed at once, on a time limit, and without missing a beat, Farm Frenzy 2 turns from what looks like another Farmville-style cartoon farming game into complete and utter pandemonium.”

The game is available on Android and on Java, so check it out on Android Market or go to games menu on your handset and search for ‘Farm Frenzy 2’ to join in the fun.

Also, don’t forget to check back next week for part 2 of our Pocket Gamer Awards recap.
