Posted by Daryna Dorogan on February 27, 2014

This month, QuickBlox has even more reasons to celebrate: we released 2 apps for Manchester City Football Club! City App iOS and City App Android are feature-filled and fun as their fans deserve the best!

Even a few all-nighters could not spoil the great pleasure of being able to constantly watch football, so it is worth mentioning :)

New opportunities for StackMob users

Posted by Daryna Dorogan on February 24, 2014

With the recent disbanding of StackMob we decided that their users should not suffer technical difficulties because of that. We have developed StackMob to QuickBlox Tutorial materials which will help StackMob users to switch to QuickBlox with no pain. We’ll provide a quick comparison of features from StackMob SDK to those found in the QuickBlox SDKs. From the code examples, you’ll see that making the switch to QuickBlox is really easy.

QuickBlox supports intellectual games

Posted by Daryna Dorogan on February 21, 2014

An indie developer GanaLila has just released  C.U.B.I.P.L.E.X- 3D word game powered by QuickBlox!

C.U.B.I. (Cool Unit of Bot Intelligence) is a next generation AI machine that loves to Play, Learn, Enjoy and eXplore! CUBI learns through games played on its internal simulation engine.

CUBI wants to communicate and starts by learning words. The current game mode involves the player teaching CUBI words using a 3D word search game.

Gameplay

Untitled3434534CUBI generates its own “alpha-cubes” that have letters on all six faces. All letters have the same score initially to avoid any bias in usage. Each face is color coded and etched with a score multiplier for the letter on the face. Word score multipliers are awarded when 3 or more adjacent letters have the same color code. Longer color patterns are awarded higher multipliers. Cubes can be rotated to access letters on other faces. Words must contain 3 or more letters.

* 3D cubes give players plenty of exploration room to find words of their choice. The longer the word, the higher the letter score.

* Players can test their spatial memory skills by quickly registering letter/color/weight combinations on the cubes to maximize their scores.

* Players are free to form as many words as they want and are not limited to a predetermined list!

Example Features

* 10 badges with 5 star rating levels, and 25 milestone challenges. *  Bonus mini-game “Dice Dance” to get free in-game currency (Qubits). *  Simple gestures combined with minimalist aesthetics for a smooth visual experience.

Price & Availability

C.U.B.I.P.L.E.X. 1.0 is free and available worldwide on the App Store for iOS 7.0+ devices.

We wish them best of luck!
