Multiplayer Update Submitted for Modern Combat: Sandstorm!

Modern Combat: Sandstorm was revolutionary game by Gameloft that changed the standard of App Store games and took iDevice FPS graphics to a new level. However, most people that played the game agreed that a multiplayer update was in order, and true to their wishes Gameloft confirmed that this update was in the works. Though there was much skepticism, I am now announcing that this update has been submitted!

The update contains the long awaited online (and local) multiplayer via wi-fi and bluetooth, Gameloft LIVE support, and best of all, Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch modes. Not only will you be able to frag each other in a free-for-all, but you will also be able to frag others with a friend! The update’s current status is “Waiting For Review,” and I’m hoping that changes soon. Once the update hits, Modern Combat: Sandstorm’s gameplay and replayability will be taken to a new level, and gamers will be flocking to play another great multiplayer game.

UNO Adds Push Notifications

UNO just recently received an update that adds a peculiar feature to the game: Gameloft Live.  In this game, you can collect points, trophies, and compete against friends on all your games.  Gameloft Live will probably only be available for Gameloft games, and it rivals the likes of the Plus+ network.  Design is well implemented, and menus aren’t so horrific looking like OpenFeint.  Their new game Gangstar is also said to implement Gameloft Live, and it should be implemented in all their previous games.

Features:

  • Add friends.
  • Collect points and compete with friends.
  • Online trophies.
  • Personal profile with avatar.
  • Fluid design and implementation.

Although I’m quite exhausted from all these social networking platforms, Gameloft Live seems to do things right and create something very similar to Xbox Live.  Oh, and did I mention push notifications?
