1，Electronic Arts has announced the launch of Peggle Blast on mobile devices, introducing new players to PopCap’s popular peg-breaking franchise through a free-to-play experience on iOS and Android. In Peggle Blast, players complete level-based gameplay that challenges them to launch orbs at peg formations, with the main goal of breaking key colored pegs before running out of shots.
Peggle BlastEach level of Peggle Blast contains a different peg formation, and may offer a different goal. That is, some levels may ask players to only clear a large number of orange pegs without running out of shots, while another removes the orange pegs and instead challenges players to hatch phoenix eggs by hitting them with shots. Still other levels ask players to remove pegs to drop rainbow gems to the bottom of the screen, and so on.
Levels are split into groups by Peggle Master as well. These characters, like the franchise’s famous unicorn Bjorn, sit at the top of the screen, and each come with a different power. Bjorn, for instance, offers a super guide trajectory line for precise aiming on difficult shots, while Kablooey the Peacock causes an explosion that destroys blue pegs, and everything around them.（source：insidemobileapps.com ）
2，Games company WildTangent has released the results of a new study, measuring the time mothers (both current mothers and expecting mothers) spend playing mobile games on smartphones and tablets. The study, conducted with research firm Interpret, LLC, found 80 percent of mothers play games at least once a week on a smartphone or tablet device, with 68 percent of pregnant women playing games multiple times each day.
The study gathered data from 1,000 women across four groups: expectant mothers, mothers with infants, mothers with toddlers, and mothers with children aged 5-17. It found 47 percent of mothers multitask, playing games while they also watch TV, with 77 percent of respondents being fans of matching puzzle games.
Since they (in theory) have more time on their hands, expectant mothers were found to play for an hour longer each week than mothers with infants. However, 76 percent of those mothers with infants said they play games while their children nap throughout the day. Finally, 58 percent of mothers with toddlers said they play games to relax when feeling stressed, while 55 percent of mothers with infants play games when they’re bored.（source：insidemobileapps.com ）
3，NewBay Media’s Mobile Entertainment today announced that it is shutting down effective tomorrow, ending a run that began in 2005.
Originally a print magazine, the publication’s remit was to cover what was then a much smaller industry of entertainment media accessed through cell phones. Unfortunately, the explosive growth of the mobile entertainment industry helped make the Mobile Entertainment publication redundant.
“‘[M]obile entertainment’ has become a bit of a misnomer,” the site’s farewell letter stated. “Almost all entertainment is mobile, from the core world of games (where we first started) through to sex and porn (which, yep, we aren’t afraid to say we have covered extensively too). We saw our sister titles – including MCV, Develop, plus the likes of Music Week, PCR and others – cover mobile more and more in ways that were relevant to them. ‘Mobile entertainment’ moved on. And so that, plus other changing market conditions including a drastically shifting commercial climate, have meant it’s time for Mobile Entertainment to move on as well.”
Though Mobile Entertainment is going away, the site said its fellow NewBay Media properties will be expanding their coverage of the mobile industry.（source ：gamesindustry ）
4，Marketing network Ad2games has raised $9 million in a series A funding round with 3TS Capital Partners, HitFox Group and its own management team.
“3TS is the perfect partner for a company like us, operating in a highly dynamic market,” said CEO Albert Schwarzmeier.
“With this investment we will further-develop our technology around behavioral user targeting and boost our team. The $81.5 billion games market is expanding fast – this funding will help us grow our position as a global market leader.”
The company works with over 150 game publishers including Bigpoint, Gameforge, EA, Kabam, Goodgame Studios and Nexon. It was acquired by HitFox Group in 2012 and now has over 4000 media partners like Pro7Sat1, SevenGames and Jeux Video.
“The more we learned about Ad2games, the clearer it became why they are the leaders for online games performance marketing,” added 3TS managing partner Pekka Mäki.
“They have a unique combination of a talented team, specific expertise, and innovative profiling technologies. We are keen to help them strengthen their presence in Eastern Europe and the USA, which are both key expansion regions for the company.”（source：gamesindusrty.biz）
5，Finnish developer Supercell is responsible for some of the biggest hits of the App Store with Hay Day [Free], Boom Beach [Free], and of course Clash of Clans [Free], and as the folks over at Gamezebo have picked up on, the company is adding a new title to their catalog called Spooky Pop. It looks quite a bit different from their other games, as this is a straight up puzzler. You’ll make matches on a game board on the bottom of the screen, which in turn charge up the attacks of your fighters who are defending against monsters on the top of the screen.（source：toucharcade ）
