1,Star Wars: Uprising may not contain the droids you’re looking for if you want a deep, desktop-style massively multiplayer online role-playing game.

But it does offer a near-perfect mobile experience for quick play on the go and remains true to the Star Wars movie universe — so much so that it’s entrusted with new pieces of the canon.

Star Wars: Uprising is available now, free to play (with in-game purchases), from Kabam and LucasFilm Ltd. on iOS and Android. I tested it on a Samsung Galaxy S6 with Android “Lollipop” version 5.1.1. Having the Samsung’s larger screen likely made it a little easier to hit the right spots for controls.

SWU doesn’t hold any ambitions of being a great big “Star Wars Game,” but it does a really nice job of conveying the feel of the universe on a small scale. The characters you chat with look and talk like authentic members of the films’ casts, and the gear you obtain has a definite Star Wars aesthetic.

You’ll be sent on a variety of missions to help those characters, and while all of them seem to boil down to “shoot everyone before you run out of health,” the reasons you’re given for being there are different enough to keep you entertained for the few minutes it takes to clear a quest.

The well-written story takes place during the 30 years after the original trilogy, but before December’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens film.(source:venturebeat.com

2,Gamasutra has heard from multiple sources that Gameloft has effectively shut down yet another game development studio, this time in Seattle, and laid off staff less than a year after opening the office last November.

One source estimates that roughly 15 people were laid off as Gameloft Seattle ceased developing games this week. It’s yet unclear if the studio will be repurposed as a sales/support office with a much smaller staff, or if it will close for good.

This is the latest in a string of shutdowns for Gameloft, which confirmed earlier this month that it had closed 7 studios this year as part of an ongoing cost reduction program to address ‘disappointing’ revenues.

Among them were Gameloft New York City, shuttered in July after 15 years of operation, and Gameloft Tokyo, which was gutted this summer after releasing its first game.

Gamasutra has reached out to Gameloft for more details on what happened to Gameloft Seattle and why, but we expect no meaningful response. If you or someone you know was affected by this event you can contact Gamasutra to tell your story in confidence.(source:gamasutra.com

3,The guys over at Simogo have earned a special place in most iOS gamers’ hearts because they have delivered some amazing games such as Year Walk and the fantastic Device 6. Recently, though, they’ve shifted to games that straddle the divide between game and narrative and have even gone full-narrative recently with the release of a collection of stories called Year Walk Bedtime Stories for Awful Children. As a literature fanatic, I can’t complain about this latest release (and I love the title too), but most gamers have been waiting to see when Simogo would shift back to producing games. Well, the wait is over becase Simogo has just released a new puzzle game called SPL-T [$2.99]. However, it wouldn’t be Simogo if the game was just a straightforward game, would it?(source:toucharcade.com

4,Well, let’s hope my streak with writing stories about pulled games only to see them spring back to life continues, friends. The announcement of Bioshock’s release on iOS in the summer of last year was quite the surprise. Though opinions of the results may vary, most can at least agree that it was quite impressive from a tech point of view. Unfortunately, not even a year later, the arrival of iOS 8.4 completely broke the game. The publisher of the game, 2K, quickly amended its App Store description to assure players that they were working on fixing the problem. Not long after that, the game was pulled from active sale on the App Store, but was still accessible through the purchase history of anyone who bought it. Was.

An eagle-eyed member of the TouchArcade forums recently noticed that Bioshock is now not only unavailable to buy, but not even existing owners can re-download the title via their purchase histories, as with most pulled apps. Naturally, we reached out to just about every 2K contact we know to get some kind of explanation, but as of the time of this writing, none have gotten back to us. Now, this might be nothing, but several of the emails we sent to contacts directly at 2K bounced right on back to us. None of 2K’s other games appear to be afflicted, so what’s going on? Since 2K hasn’t offered an answer, we are free to wildly speculate!(source:toucharcade.com

5,Forgot about pigs — Angry Birds need to worry about over 20 years of video game-based movie bombs

Sony released the first trailer for The Angry Birds Movie today, which you can watch below. The film, which comes out next summer, is an adaptation of the popular mobile game series. The original Angry Birds has 2.8 billion downloads across all types of platforms, according to developer Rovio. However, being a hit that big doesn’t ensure the movie will succeed. Even the mighty Super Mario Bros. became a stinker when turned into a film.

This is the first time a gaming series that created its name on mobile has made the big-screen transition, so maybe that difference can help The Angry Birds Movie avoid the mediocre fate of Prince of Persia, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, and Street Fighter (both of them). The trailer, which looks about as bland as most CG animated films, doesn’t exactly instill any confidence in us.(source:venturebeat.com
