Pocket Gamer Community Spotlight - March 6th

You talked. We listened.
Product: Pocket Gamer | Publisher: Steel Media Ltd | Format: Android, iPhone, iPad
We know you lot aren't shy in coming forward with your opinions. Believe it or not, we read every comment, Tweet, and Facebook message. Sometimes we'll even respond to them.

The Pocket Gamer community spirit is fantastic, and to celebrate that we've started running a new weekly feature based on you, and everything you've got to say. 

Here are some of our picks of the week. 

As this is such an important week for Pokémon, we thoughtwhat better way to kick things off than with our own unique celebration of its 20th birthday; a video from AppSpy Editor, Alysia Judge.

Alysia's unique take on the Nintendo classic included everything from Ash having daddy issues to Nicki Minaj actually being the 124th Pokemon. Really! It needs to be seen to be believed.

And those who did see it had plenty to say.

One YouTube user was so distraught he said … 'watched the entire thing and THAT is a pretty dark way to interpret it….childhood destroyed. Y U DO THIS?!'


But if Alysia's slightly twisted interpretation wasn't quite dark enough for you, the pleasantly named Floydthef***bag reckons 'the woods of the Kanto region are just littered with the corpses of ten year olds who couldn't hack it on their own.'

That actually sent a shiver down my spine.

Antony Morado prefers the fact that Nintendo is vague about the game's lore and says 'I hope Nintendo never gives an explanation on many things going on in the Pokemon universe. It's so much cooler to believe and wonder in all of the different theories on the internet.'

Perhaps that's for the best, Antony.

We also bagged some exclusive information on the upcoming Galaxy of Fire 3 - Manticore in an interview with Fishlabs' head of studios, Michael Krach.

Unfortunately, the exclusive information seemed to upset a few of our readers.

skubuluchi - in particular - was quite downbeat about the whole thing 'I was really excited for this game. It sucks they are going the pay to win route … For me this is a sad day indeed.'

skubuluchi even used the (sad) emoticon to convey that disappointment. Poor guy.

Fortunately, a Galaxy of Fire 3 developer whisked his way into the discussions like a knight in shining armour, hoping to alleviate some of those concerns.

Tobi@Fishlabs told everyone 'Don’t worry, you will be able to enjoy the game to the fullest regardless of how much money you're gonna spent.'

We chose not to draw attention to his typo at the time, although we sort of just did that now.

Tobi@Fishlabs elaborated on this by saying 'There won't be any Pay2Win.' but that you can 'speed up your progress via IAPs'

That doesn’t sound so bad, right?

Adam Binley isn't so sure, and has a few concerns of his own that he took the time to share ‘I prefer to pay for a game outright and have all the content included. IAP could definitely suck the life out of a game, especially if they are required to get ahead.'

I guess nobody will know for sure until Galaxy of Fire 3 - Manticore releases later this year.

One piece of news which really had people dancing in the aisles is that Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 is finally coming to mobile! Whoop!

 dashed to his keyboard and exclaimed 'Really excited for this!'

LordVandal even went as far as to say the news 'Made my day; marvellous!' 

mrfatuous had slightly more tempered enthusiasm, however, and hoped that 'the controls are better than the mobile port of RCT3'

Our news guru, Clement, shared his concerns. Let's hope the developers do as well.

We ended the week with the release of a little game from a small developer. I doubt you've heard of Supercell. Anyone? No?

Well, anyway, Clash Royale got 9/10 and ended up being our Game of the Week

This seemed to surprise a few people, and some of them definitely let us hear about it. 

@_pdubya_ from Twitter insinuated that the whole thing might be a bit underhand 'hmmm did they (Supercell) pay for this by any chance?'

Nope. Believe it or not, we actually like the game. Honest.

Another Twitter user @alexadjadj seemed bitter about the game's success and said 'they don't have enough exposure, let's give it some more ... There are other studios and other games out there.'

Really? We had no idea! Oh wait, yes we did because the site does actually have other content. 

Meanwhile on YouTube, others seemed to agree with our verdict. TheSamurix16 called Clash Royale a 'Super fun game.'

Jgirl939 also thought it was a 'very well put review' that 'covered almost everything'

You can't see it from there, but Harry's head inflated just a little bit.

While Clash Royale seems to be dividing gamers right down the middle, you'll certainly be seeing plenty more of it in the weeks and months to come.

Thank you for all your comments, suggestions, and other feedback. We love reading them - however and wherever you choose to express yourself - that’s why we’ve decided to put all this together.

So, don't be shy. Get involved! You could be the next to feature on our Community Spotlight!
