Bplay This Week – Awesome Space Inspired Theme, Great Deal On Games From Glu Mobile

Comments

space theme

Two exciting items of excitement to report from Bplay HQ this week. First off, they’ve got one of Magmic’s newest themes called Space: 1999. I’ve been running it on my 9700 for the last week and a half, and I absolutely love it. I’ve also tested this them on other devices including the Torch 9800, and it runs beautifully. It takes space inspired animations and comic book style art to the next level. It goes completely against your standard Zen and Today style themes, and adds an element of artsiness that seems to have become rare in the world of BlackBerry themes. We’re not all suit-dummies, you know. Fans of the past ‘Propaganda‘ theme from Magmic will definitely love this theme.

Secondly (but not less importantly), Bplay sent out an email to all of its subscribers letting them know that Glu Mobile, makers of Call of Duty: Black Ops Mobile and Family Feud Mobile, has slashed their prices on a number of their top selling titles. Some of those games include the aforementioned ones, Blur Racing, World Series Poker, and many more. This sale will last throughout the month on June.

You can easily download out all of these titles and more by visiting our Bplay store.

Game Review: Guitar Hero 5 Mobile for BlackBerry by GLU

Comments

Guitar Hero 5 for BlackBerry is a musical rhythm game developed by GLU and distributed by Bplay. The Guitar Hero series is a megahit on game consoles and pioneered a whole new genre of expensive controllers and premium downloadable extra songs.

The object of the game is to hit the musical notes with good timing. The more notes you correctly hit in a row, better your bonus multiplier gets and the bigger your score will be. You still get partial points for a near miss so to get great scores you’ve got to hit the notes bang-on. You get the most points for a long streak so try not to drop the ball or your bonus multiplier gets reset to zero.

Game Review: Stranded: Mysteries of Time by Glu

Comment


Stranded: Mysteries of Time is a sci-fi adventure game by Glu.

Stranded takes place on a mysterious and lush desert island. The game opens with very little info as to who you are and where to go. With a little exploration, you realize you are a scientist working at a secret facility. The plot immediately reveals a genius scientist and his time machine. Shortly after his presentation you discover that the time machine has been sabotaged. When asked if the scientist had any enemies he replies: “Time travel can create unknown enemies.”

I won’t get into spoilers but the game is surprising in its design. You can travel millions of years back in time to the time of the dinosaurs, or you can travel one year into the future. There are also times of day, so there are different things happening during day and night times that will help you in your quests. A good tip is if you need to grow something, plant it in the present then travel a year in the future to harvest.
