Super Mario Run – A limited freemium game?

Super Mario Run was launched last a few weeks ago and has caused the buzz that one would expect. Not every day Nintendo, a company that launches its video games only in its own consoles, publishes a game of Mario for iPhone and iPad.

The figures show that the decision has been adequate: it has been downloaded 40 million times in these few days, surpassing the astonishing fee that established Pokémon Go (game associated with Nintendo, but not properly developed by them).

Of course, downloading something for free does not have as much merit as paying it, something necessary in Super Mario Run if you want to play the whole game. Nintendo has not published figures who have bought the game, so it is difficult to establish a percentage of retention of players. Some media say it has been bought about 1 million times, which would mean about $ 14 million in revenue.

Since most mobile video games are free or do not have a very high price (3 euros is somewhat expensive in this market), it is not surprising that the response of some has been negative. The AppStore reviews page is full of opinions against Nintendo for having put such a high price. In Spanish, there are almost 500 reviews, most of them a star.

To this must be added the response of the investors: Nintendo has been down on the stock market once again, precisely because the users are complaining and because they do not value both the figures issued by the company and the noise that has been generated around the price of game.

Nintendo has been a difficult 10 years without recovering the amazing sales figures and value in stock achieved with Wii, the console with command for control of movements that captivated players less accustomed to traditional consoles and who still were not going to make the leap To Angry Birds, Candy Crush and mobile phones.

Wii U has been an absolute failure in sales and Nintendo 3DS has had more difficult than predecessor, Nintendo DS, to operate in the market of portable consoles because of smartphones, who have mastered this format with simple games and Free.

This Christmas, along with Super Mario Run, the Japanese company has bet on Nes Entertainment Classic, a console better known as NES Mini and is a miniature reissue of the first home console they released in 1985.

Despite being a success and one of the most sought-after gifts for these dates, the lack of stock has returned to convert a product expected by fans into something negative and vilified.

In March, Nintendo will launch Switch, a new console that unfolds as a portable and home console. Its innovative format and its proposal more adult than juvenile caught the attention of the fans, but the investors were not satisfied neither and the initial answer has been negative.

The Difference Between iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s

I know I was all over the place when I was talking about the games on my iphone because of the sims freeplay cheats tool I found. But lets forget that for now and talk about something else. Since I saw so many fake stuff of this phone from China, I probably should share my thoughts about it. So lets start with the question. What is really the difference between iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s?

I am planning to buy iPhone 5 phone for my little young one. And I’m so confused which model is the best for my kid to buy.

Their are few things that can separate this models. They have different looks. The iPhone 5 has more masculine look. The iPhone 5c has a candy color look great for kids and teens. While the iPhone 5s has a more elegant look. The iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s have a larger memory of 64g while the iPhone 5c only have 32G. The voice usage of the models iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s is up to 10 hours while the model iPhone 5 has only 8 hours of usage. But they all have the same music usage 40 hours.

For me I’m gonna buy the iPhone 5c to my little one cause it has an attractive colors for kids that he can choose from.

Do I really like playing Sims Freeplay on my iPhone?

Sims Freeplay is relatively an old game released by EA but it is one of those free-to-play games for iOS and Android. Yes, there is a non mobile game and it has more features but the mobile version is more handy and you can play with your sims wherever you are. And that is why it is a big hit.

Here are a few things that the Freeplay lacks. The Sims 3 has huge area and you feel you can go around. Freeplay don’t have this roaming feeling. Freeplay also lacks the micromanagement of your sims character. Remember in Sims 3 where you preset the character of your sim?

Micromanagement in the game is also very lacking. Like in Sims 3 where it is really challenging where your sims needs when not taken cared will quickly reach to critical level. There is also very little time to advance the character. I mean, it seems too easy compared to the bigger versions. You see, in freeplay, you simply send them to work and your sim will automatically advance. Specially on the first 2 levels where it is totally hands free.

But for a smartphone or tablet game, it is a good game. Not perfect but it does keep you company. Not too much as a strategy game so graphics is more important.

For the purest, Freeplay may not be a good version to start with because you have the hardcore Sims 2 and 3 for the PC where you really get to experience how growing your sims should be done. Customization or your contents and even modding can be done of the PC versions and you have a whole range of content to change to your liking. Yes, there are some events in the hand held game but it will cost you some extra. Still, its not bad to start with especially if you are the person who’s always on the go, Freeplay is for you.

VERDICT?

Yes, it is one of those EA games that keeps you company. Not too much waiting and you get the job done. But for the die hard fans, they will always say it is lacking since it doesn’t give you a great deal of freedom – unless of course if you know some sort of sims freeplay money cheats or something. But for me personally, since I’m always on the go and hate sitting in front of a computer waiting for the time, I prefer this game. Fun and keeps you company.
