Gameloft today released an interesting new game called Ninja UP! It’s not a first-person-shooter, movie tie-in, or anything else the studio is typically associated with—instead it’s an endless jumper, à la Line Jumper and others.
Gameplay is as addictive as you’d expect. Players are tasked with sending a ninja flying upward by drawing lines that simulate trampolines. The smaller the line, the bigger the bounce, and levels are littered with deadly obstacles… Read More

Apple rarely, if ever at all, advertises other people’s software on its front page, so imagine our surprise after noticing a line at the bottom of Apple.com saying that a “new version of Asphalt 8: Airborne is coming to the App Store this summer”. Yup, just like that.
The message seems to have first appeared on the Apple homepage nearly a month ago on Sunday, April 27, 2014.
I know what you must be thinking, but no – this game has not been featured in Apple’s iPhone 5s ‘Powerful’ television commercial in the United States – though you could be partially right because localized versions of the ad that Apple is airing in other countries do feature Asphalt 8… Read More

It’s been nearly a year since we first saw a preview of Gameloft’s Modern Combat 5, and the game has yet to see a release date. In fact, we’ve heard almost nothing about the title in the past 11 months, leading some folks to believe that the project had either been shelved or canceled.
But that has certainly changed in the last few weeks. In late April, Gameloft offered up new details about the game, and a week later it broke down its new unified progression system. And today, it posted a pair of beautiful new screenshots showing Modern Combat 5 in action… Read More

As my colleague Cody informed you, French games maker Gameloft recently shed more light on its highly anticipated Modern Combat sequel, titled Modern Combat 5: Blackout.
Coming to mobile later this year, Modern Combat 5: Blackout takes place in such locations as Venice, Italy and Tokyo and involves the main character Phoenix securing a transport of weapons of mass destruction from a particularly well-armed terrorist group.
This is a nice excuse for action-packed combat sequences and a bunch of nicely rendered orange explosions. Before you jump straight for comments, there’s much more to this game than meets the eye. A new Gameloft blog post published Thursday offers new details on the game’s unified progression system and its four soldier classes… Read More
