​The Pokémon Company International announced today that Pokémon Duel is now available for download at no charge on the App Store and on Google Play.
Pokémon Duel is an exciting mobile strategy game in which fans deploy digital Pokémon figures and battle based on strategic moves to reach a goal in the opponent’s territory. Pokémon Duel gameplay details follow:

    -By strategically assembling their team of six Pokémon, each with its own strengths and a set number of steps it can take, players can take different routes to rush toward the goal or block the opponent’s Pokémon from advancing.

    -When two Pokémon from opposing teams meet, a battle commences, and the players spin each Pokémon’s Data Disk to see which Attack each Pokémon will use.

    -In addition to moving Pokémon and battling, players will also be able to use a plate at the start of their turn. These plates have various effects, including swapping positions of Pokémon in play and giving their Pokémon various battle enhancements for that turn.

    -The player who reaches their goal first wins the duel. Players can duel against real opponents at any time by tapping League Match on the Home screen. They will then be automatically matched, according to skill, with other players around the world.  A variety of items, including Pokémon figures, can be earned through Time Boosters that are unlocked with every League victory. Winning League matches also increases the player’s rating and provides a chance to get different Pokémon figures as they compete in higher-level leagues.

More plates and Boosters can be purchased at the Shop within the app. Materials collected from purchased Boosters can be traded for desired Pokémon. In-game currency known as Gems can be purchased at the Shop or earned in several ways, such as by playing Pokémon Duel daily and clearing missions.

Train2Game News Simplygon

Simplygon, the leading provider of automatic 3D optimization solutions for digital content creation, and Uppercut Games announced that Submerged for iOS fully relied on Simplygon optimization. 
The Unreal® Engine 4 game is a third-person exploration, post-apocalyptic indie game, originally developed for PC and console. The initial manual optimization on the city buildings and landmarks left the team with thousands of individual objects to draw, and this was too taxing on the most mobile GPUs. Simplygon and the HLOD feature allowed the studio to easily add Level of Detail at a series of different aspects of the open world game.

“Without Simplygon’s tool we would never have been able to release Submerged on iOS” said Andrew James, co-Founder of Uppercut Games. “We were pleasantly surprised to see how seem-less the transitions to HLOD mesh looked on device, even when swapped out to the LOD at a close distance. The Simplygon HLOD optimization allowed us to keep most of the original PC / console high poly art for the detail areas of the game where the player explores, walks and climbs.”

“Mobile is becoming increasingly powerful and talented developers as Uppercut can deliver really high-fidelity graphics on these devices. Obviously though, there are restrictions and limitations so optimization is key to a good game experience. It feels great to be able to provide UE4 developers with a robust and easy-to-use integration and an efficient way of optimizing original content, making games both look great and run smoothly across platforms. We are thrilled that Uppercut chose Simplygon for Submerged and are happy with their results.”, explained Martin Ekdal, co-Founder of Simplygon.

Simplygon was used in different manners to maintain the art quality while reaching a good frame rate. The HLOD feature combines hundreds of small individual detail meshes and reduces them to single draw call LOD meshes. This had a dramatic improvement on the game’s frame rate on iOS devices. A meaningful example is the reduction percentage done in Submerged. HLOD reduced 4176 meshes (many with multiple materials) down to 30 LOD meshes (99% reduction), and 1.38 million polygons down to 183,000 polygons (87% reduction). Simplygon replaced an optimization task that would have taken months to do manually to only a week of work.

Simplygon is the de facto standard optimization solution for large AAA PC and console games; mobile games; and MMOs, and is applicable to any medium where 3D art assets are created or utilized. By automating the optimization process required to make games run smooth, Simplygon helps digital content creators save important resources where artists would otherwise need to manually re-create large amounts of content.

Train2game Official Dan Bilzerian Game

We would like to present to you SAVE DAN – THE OFFICIAL DAN BILZERIAN GAME, inspired by Dan’s unique lifestyle.

Bon vivan, millionaire and poker player Dan Bilzerian has been attacked in the cyber world by sexy zombies! These villains want him as much as the long-legged beauties in real life, but unlike the cuddly girls Dan is surrounded with at all times, these creatures are bloodthirsty. Only you can help him out! Avoid and gun down bloodthirsty zombies! Choose from an array of destructive weaponry and put them to use in locations throughout America! When you play Save Dan, the unbelievably funny and original free-to-play game for iOS and Android developed by Novasoft, you can expect to hold your breath for action packed moments!

Dan himself was involved in the development of the game. He gave very valuable advice on various weapon characteristics, as well as guidance on zombie modeling and animations.

“Originally the concept started out as a shooting app with a nice variety of weapons shooting inanimate targets in a variety of environments.  I suggested making it more interesting by having a variety of zombie chicks chasing me to rip my clothes off and “abuse” me.  The player’s objective is simply to save my ass!  It kinda took off from there with some cool additional features.”, said Dan commenting the launching of the game.

Your mission is to gun down these zombies before they get Dan, who has to activate signal beacons so you both get a chance to carry out the objective, which is to escape the zombie madness and survive. Time is of the essence, so you better watch out! If you fail to save him, the undead will throw themselves at him and tear him to pieces!
