PreCentral: OddBlob hits the App Catalog, Astraware sets new goal for Word Games

Recommended Posts

OddBlob hits the App Catalog, Astraware sets new goal for Word Games

It took a little bit longer than both we and Astraware apparently expected, but the ever-popular game OddBlob has finally hit the HP TouchPad. For the going rate of $1.99, you'll be able to guide squishy little OddBlob through squishy disintegrating maze levels, much to your amusement, we would hope. The arrival of OddBlob caps off the saga of the TouchPad Totalizer, Astraware's sales tracker for the TouchPad used to publicly gauge and encourage interest in Astraware's games on the TouchPad. The tally topped the 5000 mark last month, hitting the top of the scale and triggering the porting and release of Astraware Casino. With OddBlob out, we can put the Totalizer behind us.

Or can we? Nope!, says Astraware. They've extended the Totalizer up to a new goal of 7500, at which point Astraware will work on getting their Word Games pack onto the TouchPad. We're currently sitting at a total of 6341 sales for Astraware games on the TouchPad, which is both encouraging (not that far to go) and a little bit depressing (only 6341?). Word Games is a five-pack of, well, word games, including Shuffle (find as many words as you can from a jumble of letters), Hexed (trace words on a hexagonal grid), Wordsearch (like the newspaper classic), Gridlock (trace words on a grid, selecting every square), and Spellmaster (you get three options, pick the one that's not misspelled).

As before, we've got to give Astraware props for moving forward with TouchPad development even though the profits reaped from webOS over the four-month history of the Totalizer can't have been huge. Plus there are the easily achievable sales goals they've set - only 2500 sales of five popular games needed to move to the next tier is doable without really trying. If there's one advantage the webOS App Catalog has over the Google Play Market and iOS App Store, it's that the lower number of apps overall and new daily make app discovery easy and keeps new apps near the top of the list for a while. But then again, that's because it's a shrinking platform with a shrinking developer base. Thankfully the users and developers left are generally the dedicated kind. Like Astraware. You guys rock.

    • How to turn on advanced image controls in game mode?

      How to turn on advanced image controls in game mode?
      I have a PC connected to the LG UK6520PSA TV through the hdmi 2.0 cable and incredible as it may seem I have already been able to configure the advanced image mode with all parameters connected, such as dynamic contrast, super resolution, gamma, among others.
      It turns out that for some reason the advanced s control settings become inactive, with the possibility of changing the gamma only. Has anyone ever had this problem?
      I already reseated several times and I could not, it is also important to note that I saw some videos on youtube with these settings activated in game mode. Please help me if you know something, thank you!
      Sorry for the google translator. The images below represent the options connected in hdmi game mode connected to a PC running BF

    • Question: TV's User Guide DOA!

      My brand new 75UK6190PUB  TV's  USER GUIDE  seems to have no response once reaching its home page. I press HOME on the remote .  Then select the USER GUIDE app from the bottom of the screen. The home page of the USER GUIDE displays full screen with NONE of the topics highlighted. All attempts to progress in the guide fail including the arrow keys. The only remote button button that works is EXIT (and POWER of course). Using the USER GUIDE on a Chromebook from the LG website seems to work fine. I have NOT attempted to upgrade the firmware yet, allowing for the possibility that I am doing an incorrect action. I forgot to gather my product's S/N & current firmware version when composing this message on my desktop PC, but will provide them upon request. I do not yet have a keyboard and mouse connected to the TV yet, and am using other devices to use this forum.

      Trying to find out if the Google Movies App will be updated to support 4K anytime soon?   There was an article stating this will happen on WEBOS soon, but no news since.  Update:  Well, it appears that the 4K on Google Movies App is now working.  I show 4K plus HDR, but didn't see an actual update from the APP.   Oh well, this is good news!
