Hey, good morning! You look fabulous. This Thursday, one porn site is using AI to catalog the stars of its clips, Amazon has a waterproof Kindle (unrelated) and we discuss how Blade Runner 2049 is pushing forward AI in fiction. Engadget RSS Feed
The Pixel 2 and 2 XL were announced last week, but with most variants not shipping for a few weeks, those of you pre-ordered one are probably getting a little antsy. But starting tomorrow, October 12th, Verizon stores will have floor units of the Pixel 2s for customers (and eager tech nerds) to play with.
Get ready, everyone. It’s time to ride the dragon as if you’re the Khaleesi in Game of Thrones. Dragon Hills 2, the sequel to the very entertaining 2015 Dragon Hills [$ 1.99], is scheduled to fly our way October 12th. As we wrote about back in September, the game’s developer, Rebel Twins, has brought plenty of fun games to the App Store—including Daddy Was a Thief [$ 1.99] and Aliens Drive Me Crazy [Free]—and it looks like it’s about to give us another great one in Dragon Hills 2. In case you haven’t played the original, Dragon Hills 2 will have you riding a dragon that doesn’t just fly high above everything but, rather, dips below the earth and pops up like a deadly jack-in-a-box ready to wreak havoc on the world around.
Just one quick look at the trailer below should show you why we are excited about Dragon Hills 2. When you take dragons, add fun visuals and plenty of mayhem, you probably have yourself a winner. Dragon Hills 2 will bring three new worlds, 20 towers to conquer, 7 special weapons to unlock and upgrade, 21 Bosses, and so much more. And this time around, you are going up against modern technology, with helicopters and even spaceships trying to take you down. The game will be a premium app for $ 2.99. Head over to our forums to share your impressions of the trailer.
Indie developer Rusty Moyher and his studio Wild Rooster have announced the release date of the twitchy arcade game Train Bandit which is now set to arrive next week on October 12th. Developed during the 2017 Train Jam, Train Bandit is one of those left/right twitch games somewhat similar to Timberman and its ilk that has you playing as the titular bandit hopping back and forth between train cars taking out “The Law” that’s trying to bring you down. Here’s the brand new launch trailer for Train Bandit so you can see it in action.
We were able to check out a work-in-progress version of Train Bandit during GDC this past March, literally days after it had been conceived and built, and while it was originally pegged for a release in April Rusty has taken the additional time to polish up the experience for mobile. In addition it will be launching on Steam and Xbox One on the same day it arrives for iOS. That extra time has gone into adding additional enemy types as well as unlockable bandits and leaderboards to compete on. I’m crazy about these types of twitch high scoring games so I’ll be looking forward to checking out Train Bandit next week.
