We had reported back then that the Galaxy S7 Olympic Edition was coming and now it's finally here. You can own the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Olympic Games Limited Edition for $50 more than what the unlocked regular Galaxy S7 Edge costs. This is the second limited edition series based on the S7 Edge that Samsung is releasing this year, after the Injustice: Gods Among Us Edition that we saw in May. Sadly, the Gear VR will not be bundled in along with the Olympic Edition, like it was with the Injustice version. The $850 package will include a custom pouch for carrying the sporty device around though!


As we had seen earlier, the entire theme is based on the five different colors of the Olympic rings and the rings themselves can be seen at the back of the smartphone. It has been made available exclusively in the US, China, Korea, Germany and Brazil. As the moniker "Limited Edition" suggests, only 2016 units will be made available for purchase in each of these countries.

Earlier today, Google posted teaser tweets from its Nexus and Android Twitter accounts implying the likelihood of the commencing of Black Friday deals. At that time, little information was available about what would be announced or even when it would be announced as Black Friday is still a couple of days away. In Spite of including the Nexus Twitter account for the teasing, it was assumed that there is a possibility that hardware sales might be announced.


When it comes to the offers, it seems like there are deals spanning across every category you would expect on the Play Store and with so many titles being listed, it's not possible to post all the detail here. But, to give a zist, there are games starting from 99 cents, "Amazing Music Deals", movies to buy from $5.99, "Hot TV Offers", Magazines from 99 cents, 50-percent off subscriptions, up to 70-percent off Coins and a whole lot more. The Amazing Music Deals is quite interesting as you can grab some albums for only 99 cents.


It is pretty much evident that this sale is not quite the 25-cent sale we saw in previous years, so we were a little disappointed. But at least,
consumers can still save some money, especially if there is some Google Play credits laying around. So go through Google's virtual store shelves and see if there's anything that you like. To view all of the deals, click on the link below:

Ever since Nokia introduced phones with the first incarnation of Snake pre-programmed on them, mobile users have become obsessed with skill-based app games as a time-filling distraction. The simple idea was easy enough to get the hang of, but took hours of practice to master. Snake's popularity led developers to focus frequently on skill-based ideas for their games, in an effort to tap into the human desire to conquer challenges.

via GIPHY


According to bgo, Millennial and Generation Y gamers have become accustomed to games that test their ability. This highlights how Snake in the late ‘90s went on to influence apps for smartphones, where the primary area of focus is games of skill.


One of the first ever skill-based games for smartphones was Doodle Jump, which was released in 2009. Players had to tilt the phone to guide "The Doodler" up an infinite series of platforms. If you missed a platform you would fall to your doom and have to start all over again. It was hugely popular, and sold 25,000 copies daily for its first 4 months. Later that year, Angry Birds came out, and surpassed Doodle Jump's sales record.

via GIPHY


Where Doodle Jump didn't have much longevity in that it was only one level being played over and over again, Angry Birds had multiple stages, each representing a completely different set of challenges. Users could keep testing their abilities using unique birds that had varying special talents, and by breaking down more intricate sets of obstacles. They also got a star rating out of three for each level depending on how well they had done. This gave players an extra challenge - to attempt to get three stars on every level. Games in the series have been downloaded over 3 billion times, which is testament to the game's appeal.

via GIPHY


The three-star concept has been used by a number of games since Angry Birds, most notably perhaps, Candy Crush. The idea behind the game was simple; to mix candies together and clear the puzzle area. As bgo suggests, the game was "sickly and addictive" because of its "saga" feature, the fact that there were so many levels to overcome, and because you could see how far your Facebook friends had progressed as well.


The success of these challenging app games has even influenced iGaming developers to start incorporating them into slot games. Online slots are hugely popular, but gamers who like to test their skills are missing out on the action. The new Space Invaders slot at Vegas Slots Online has an added element that requires gamers to shoot the aliens to try to win money, and is one of the first of its kind. Games like this could help online casinos pull in an even wider audience.


Another skill-based app that is pushing the genre in a new direction is Pokémon Go. Players not only have to use skill to throw the pokeball and catch the intriguing monsters, they also have to wander about in real-life settings in search of them. The game incorporates augmented reality, so that the Pokémon are actually seen in the real world, through the lens of the phone of course. With augmented reality glasses set to flood markets in the near future, Pokémon Go could mark the beginning of a new wave of AR games.


The massive success of Pokémon Go and apps like Angry Birds and Candy Crush suggests that a combination of these things could be a massive hit. Will people soon be flinging virtual birds in real-life settings? Or maybe gamers will have to go into shops and move candy around on the shelves? Whatever the aim, skill games are here to stay, but they are sure to become more advanced.



The holiday season is almost upon us and many of you will either be travelling back to your home or going on a vacation. Whether you are returning home or going away from it, you will possibly want to avoid expensive roaming data charges from you carrier. Even if you do decide to use the internet while on the road, there are chances that you might end up with no network coverage at times. Offline games are your best bet during these trying times and therefore, here's a small list of games worth downloading before embarking on a trip.


Dead Trigger 2



Improved both in graphics and gameplay, Dead Trigger 2 is the better version of Dead Trigger with more aggressive zombies and a huge arsenal of weapons.


Dots: A Game about Connecting



This is as simple as they get, but the puzzle game is very addictive nonetheless. Minutes will pass by fast as you keep connecting colored dots to figure out the next solution.


Jetpack Joyride



Jetpack Joyride is an extremely fun and popular game where you control and guide Barry, who is riding a machinegun jetpack through a secret laboratory, killing evil scientists and avoiding obstacles for as long as possible.


Plants vs. Zombies 2



This one is a personal favourite of mine and I have put multiple hours into it. An addictive tower defence game at its core, Plants vs. Zombies 2 brings better graphics, animations, more plants, more levels more zombies and even a upside town funny story to the garden.

cut the rope 2

 

 

It has been over three months since ZeptoLab released Cut the Rope 2 on iOS, and the game has finally come to Android devices and Now available on the Play Store. Well, Not all of them, some reports are showing that the game may not be compatible with Android 4.4 KitKat.

The game is incompatible with both the Moto X, Nexus 10 and Nexus 4. However, the game is exactly the same as what you'd find on iOS with OmNom trying to get the candy through various physics-based puzzles. This time around you have helpers in each stage to mix up the gameplay a bit. The one major difference between the two platforms is that the game would cost 99 cents on iOS, but it is free on Android.

The decent into the depths of winder calls for some plans for entertaining friends indoors. You have the drinks at the ready and the music on in the background. But what better to add than a party game that's not Monopoly. Here are a few of the top android games to keep your guests happy whether at a housewarming, birthday party or just an impromptu get together.


Bounden


This is a dancing game that works by using your smartphone's motion sensors. Great for multiplayer use with more than one phone, it's designed so that each device is used with a partner. Holding one side each, guide an onscreen sphere through a path of rings by tilting the screen. Programmed with classical music designed with dance in mind, and coming with seven dances devised by the Dutch National Ballet, you'll find yourself undulating your arms, winding your form, till you're dancing!



Heads Up!


A charades - style game with a themed deck of charades cards. If you're the one guessing, hold your phone up to your forehead and the word shown will have to be acted out by your friends for you to guess. Extra in-app purchases mean you can customise your cards decks.


Who Can't Draw?


A fun challenging game where each player is tasked with a word that they must then attempt to draw. The phone or android device has to be passed from player to player, and each must attempt to copy the drawing they were just passed. You get fifteen seconds. At the last player, you guess the original word. Kind of reminds us of a sketch version of Chinese whispers.


Ticket To Ride


Suitable for play with up to five people, everybody can either have the app on their own phones to participate, or use one device to opt for the pass and play feature. This is a great design of the train based board game where card dealing and piece-handling is done digitally making for easy setup. In-app purchases allow you to unlock other game boards too.


Lucky Nugget Casino


A casino mobile app that allows you to host a casino themed party in your own home and either bring the glamour of a real venue to your house party, or let you try out some slots and classic card games for the chance of real wins, before you hit a casino in the real world.
