Mobile Games To Check Out: Exploding Kittens

Exploding Kittens is an extremely fun card game that has been turned into an app. While the name does sound quite cruel and evil, it really isn’t. As you’ll soon find out, the true evil was within you all along. Exploding Kittens is Russian Roullete but with cards that are full of adorable cats and sometimes other cute creatures. Your task is to be the last person alive and to do that you might have to screw over your friends more than just a couple of times.

Exploding Kittens’ gameplay is quite simple and takes less than 5 minutes to understand. All the cards have their uses described perfectly so there’s never really any confusion. There’s a draw pile of cards kept face down that every player must draw from at the end of their turn. This draw pile contains multiple Exploding Kitten cards. If you draw that you must defuse it with the help of a Defuse card. If you don’t have a defuse card, say your final rights and prepare to lose. You can still screw with your friends though as you get to choose where to put the Exploding Kitten card that just caused your demise without your friends knowing. If you were lucky enough to have a defuse card, you can defuse it and then place the Exploding Kitten card in your preferred spot so that you can have the tactical advantage. Oh, and the mobile version has a percentage meter that shows the chances of drawing an Exploding Kitten card based on the number of cards left in the draw pile. Don’t depend on it too much though because it can lull you into a false sense of security. In case you’re still confused about how the game works, here’s a video by the creators themselves that explains it.

And that’s how simple the game really is. While it does seem luck based there are strategies that you can employ that maximizes the chance of other players picking up the Exploding Kitten card. I know this because my lovely friends are all strategic Gods and will ruin your life with the right set of cards. Things never really get boring because you can always use new packs to further enhance your “enjoyment” that will later turn wherever you are into a salt mine. Oh, and if your friends are “busy” and they can’t play with you, you can always join a random online lobby and play with strangers while spamming your characters voice options. They’ve also added a new single-player feature so you can play with the CPU to get a hang of the game or to just practice. This game is also cross-platform so you can play with your iPhone friends from your Android device or vice-versa and everybody can have a jolly good time. If you’re winning that is.

Seriously though, this is an extremely fun game that’s great at parties and during any sort of small downtime that can help liven things up and I highly recommend that you check it out and give the game a try.

Fortnite Android Release Date Teased to be July 24

With PUBG so dominant in the mobile gaming market right now, many people have been wondering when the Fortnite would make its way to Android. We finally have some news but it comes from the most unlikely of sources.

Tencent Mobile is the distributor and developer of PUBG Mobile and their tweet has a Tencent WeGame logo on it which is going to be a store like community platform akin to Steam. The tweet teases us with a calendar that shows the date as 24th July and the text reads “It’s coming”. If Tencent is truly the distributor of this and even the developers for it, they are likely to become one of the biggest names in Mobile Gaming with two of the most popular games under their belt.

PUBG Mobile Beta Out Now, Includes Unreleased Features

The ever-popular PUBG Mobile now has a beta version specifically available for Android users. While it is a bit unstable and might have bugs in it, it also includes a few new features which may or may not be part of the upcoming version 0.7.0. The beta version which is available here has sadly reached its maximum number of users for now but it does say that space could open up for more users. Fret not though, even if you don’t get to play it we can still help you get hyped up for the official release with information pertaining to what is in this beta.

This beta features a faster version of Arcade mode known as Arcade Mode-War. There’s also a new feature called the “Portable Closet” that lets players change clothes during the match, however, doing so does NOT pause your game. Another in-game feature is the inclusion of a new weapon- the SLR Sniper Rifle. Besides this, there’s a new overhauled main menu design that makes it more accessible and user-friendly. This beta version, however, does not track your progress since you cannot sign-in so keep that in mind if you get into the Beta. Thanks to Android Wear for their report.

Razer Phone coming to India, Confirms CEO

The Razer Phone that released in the United States in November 2017 has finally been confirmed to be coming to India. The CEO of Razer, Mr Min-Liang Tan confirmed on Twitter that they were working on getting the Razer Phone to India during a conversation between Anuj Sharma a current employee of Razer and, Ershad Kaleebullah.

This is big news since there were a lot of people who wanted to get their hands on the Razer Phone but importing it was too much of a hassle for most people, not to mention the lack of any service centres which would also mean the lack of warranty on such an expensive phone. Mobile gaming in India has been rapidly on the rise and even though the Razer Phone might be a bit late, just the introduction into the market and giving people the choice of owning a phone that was specifically designed with mobile gaming in mind is a good step forward and hopefully, is the start of many other Razer products officially coming to India in the near future as well.
