01/24/2017 - Dash Galacticís Latest Update Now on Google Play
Dash Galactic’s Latest Update Warps in on Google Play

Multiplayer action game receives new Wormhole Events system, improved UI

CHARLESTON, SC Jan. 24th, 2017 – The co-op action game sensation, “Dash Galactic” has warped in a massive update with new Wormhole Events along with a shiny new intuitive in-game user interface.

The Wormhole Events are exclusive global in-game events that begin when players collect enough Wormhole Tokens. Strange wormhole creatures will now appear inside of regular missions — if players can kill them fast enough, they’ll receive a Wormhole Token. Every collected Token counts toward the global count; the more tokens players collect, the quicker they unlock the next Wormhole Event, giving them access to special bonuses, soft currency, Creds and loot.

“We have now Wormhole Events system in Dash. Boom!” screamed Samantha Stelter, Technical Producer at Kiz Studios. “The gameplay in Dash is about teamwork and powering up your allies. Wormholes deliver this perk to the whole community. They are powered by the players collective actions. When they open, every player gets to enjoy the rewards. Sweet!”
The Wormhole update also includes new leaderboards and related achievements, and a colorful update to the user interface, with a new in-game HUD and an exciting new loot screen.
So gear up, grab your friends and save the Known Universe today! Download the latest version NOW in the
Google Play Store.

Blue Goji Releases Its First VR Game: DinoFense


Load your rock shooter: an onslaught of enemies is approaching.
 
AUSTIN, Texas –– In partnership with game developer Team6, Blue Goji has expanded into Virtual Reality with “DinoFense” on SteamVR, compatible with HTC Vive and Oculus Rift headsets. Availability on the Oculus Store and GearVR Store will be available shortly.
 
Defend your Dino Village and Dinozens from being attacked by the uncivilized world. By understanding the landscapes and saving the imprisoned dinosaurs, you are awarded power ups and a higher score.
 
Game Features:
 
            •           27 Levels Across 3 Unique Environments
Fight off angry cavemen and other creatures who have imprisoned your fellow dinosaurs with rescue missions on the Beach, in the Jungle, or near a Volcano.

            •           360° VR Views
Strategy is key in order to make it to the end of each wave. Determine which opponents you should take out first, before they reach you. Enemies will spawn all around you: be alert of your surroundings if you do not want to be their next prisoner.

Battle your way through each tier of difficulty or face wave after wave of invaders until you fail. In Adventure mode, players can enjoy shorter levels with preset difficulties. As the levels progress, so does the difficulty, challenging you with more adversaries and more waves before you win. Endless mode has no such respite. Players will face an ceaseless barrage of enemies. Survival is key.
