A couple of minor updates from the Christmas break – firstly The Snowman and The Snowdog 2014 was shortlisted by The Guardian as one of their best Android apps for kids of 2014!
Secondly, the game received a a festive feature over Christmas on the front page of the iOS App Store (see screen grab below). This goes nicely alongside the feature for the game in the Windows Phone store just before Christmas.
If you’ve not played The Snowman and The Snowdog 2014 yet, it’s available for iOS, Android, Kindle Fire and Windows Phone devices, and you can read more about it here.
(This was in addition to a feature on the Windows Phone App store before Xmas).
Yes, in what can only be described as a startling break from convention, the follow-up to 2012’s (#1 and multiple award-winning) The Snowman & The Snowdog is… The Snowman & The Snowdog 2014!
Once again, Eggbox Interactive provided the cracking folks at Crash Lab with programming services for the project, which is available for iOS, Android, Kindle Fire and Windows Phone.
The Snowman & The Snowdog 2014 is once again a great festive experience for all the family, and sees the Snowman flying to the United States, Japan, China and Australia on his way to the North Pole, which suggests he’s a lot better at defying gravity than he is at reading a map.
Please check out the links below to purchase and enjoy the game today!
Like a particularly aggressive accountant, Buddha Finger isn’t afraid to show off it can count and deal a knockout punch or two. Pocket Gamer clearly agrees (either that or they’re particularly terrified of their accountant), because earlier this month they named it one of their ten best Android games for August 2013.
Also excellent news is the fact that fellow Robin Hood fans (er, or at least Nottingham residents) Spacehopper Studios were also listed, so congratulations to them too!
For anyone who missed it the first time round, the Android version can be gotten right here:
And for anyone with a different flavour of mobile device, chances are it’s available for your tastes too:
I have to confess I always thought a BIMA was a make of car but apparently it also stands for the British Interactive Media Association, who this week awarded The Snowman and The Snowdog the top spot in their ‘Tablet’ category.
This makes two awards for the game following the Broadcast Digital ‘Best Game’ award it claimed earlier in the year, all of which goes to show that the summer weather is no obstacle for a really determined snowman.
When you think about it, blocks are pretty brilliant really. You can build houses with them and they help avoid taking damage in Street Fighter, as well as literally some other things. And now you can celebrate the brilliance of blocks with our latest project, Brilliant Blocks, which as it happens has nothing to do with building houses or Street Fighter.
What it does have to do with is matching blocks by their colour and/or number in that it’s-so-simple-it-couldn’t-possibly-suck-up-hours-of-my-time-wait-where-did-that-afternoon-go kind of way that puzzle games tend to do. And best of all, you can try it entirely for free!
Brilliant Blocks was designed and produced by the excellent folks at Glowing Eye Games, whilst Eggbox Interactive provided development and design services for the project. It can be downloaded free from the iTunes App Store right now, with an in-game upgrade option if you fancy getting your hands on some shiny extra backgrounds and being able to enjoy the game ad-free.
If you do download the game then please also take a minute to help Eggbox Interactive and Glowing Eye Games by rating it in the App Store! (Comparisons to Street Fighter and house building are entirely optional, however).
And here’s the App Store link once again, for fun: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/brilliant-blocks/id682407526?mt=8
