Angry Birds Champions adds cash prizes to the famous bird-flinger

Collaborating with developer Rovio Entertainment, GSN Games has released a twist on the Angry Birds formula. Angry Birds Champions features the same bird-flinging gameplay, but now you can catapult Red and co for cash.

The partnership uses GSN’s WorldWinner games platform, which has been offering tournament versions of popular titles for 20 years. WorldWinner isn’t a casino app, though – you have to beat real opponents with real skill to win any money. Angry Birds Champions matches you with players of a similar level, and then it’s down to you to show your pig-thwacking prowess.

Developer PSA: Appodeal is Giving Away $6,000 Worth of Prizes in “Indie Blast Off” Contest

While there’s a heck of a lot of different awards and contests out there for mobile games, there’s always room for one more, right? Appodeal is a pretty cool SDK developers can use to increase the monetization of their ad-based games by allowing games to run the ads that pay the most across loads of networks. I’ve heard good things about it, and I sort of like how it pits the ad networks against each other. Anyway, they’re running a contest called the “Indie Game Blast Off Contest.” They’re not giving away actual cash, but instead, a bunch of stuff which could be super valuable if you’re trying to get your game off the ground.

The grand prize winner will get 10,000 installs of their game through mobile ads on the network and one on one mentorship with industry experts. Additionally your game will be featured at Indie Prize and in the Appodeal website/news letter. Oh, you’ll also get free access and accommodations for two at the next Casual Connect.

What sets this particular contest apart from most of the ones we post about is they’re looking for games that are live on the App Store. So many of these contests are specifically looking for unreleased stuff because they’re looking to cut publishing deals with the winners. Here it seems like Appodeal just wants to spread the good word of Appodeal. Anyway, if this sounds even remotely like something you’re interested in check out the rules and then apply here.

Google never paid much attention to Google Wallet, but the change over to Android Pay came with some new marketing muscle. It’s been almost a year since Android Pay landed in Australia, and now Google is rolling out a huge promotion to get more Aussies using it. The program starts today and runs through the end of 2017, but it’s only open to new Android Pay users.

The terms are a little convoluted, so you should read through the terms yourself if you want all the details.
