App Developers Struggle with a New Type of Search Optimisation

The term ASO or App Store Optimisation is thrown around a lot in the game development circles these days and rightly so. Optimizing your app for launch is just about as important as the game itself. Because if no one finds the app… does anyone ear the tree fall in the forest? However, while ASO is super important, app developers must also not forget about SEO. Some studies have indicated that nearly a third of new users will discover an app via traditional search engines on their mobile devices.

Therefore, with that in mind, let’s now throw away our preconceptions about how to gain new users and focus on what is the traditional search space, but for mobile games. Here are some steps to take to ensure that the next app launch isn’t missed on search engines across the globe.

Gain Recognition

This is a task that can begin before the app is even launched. Going out to the market and finding reputable websites to link to your new domain. This can be in the order of link packages which are very common or guest posting on other websites. Link packages allow you to quickly gain authority for the required gaming niche.

Famous ROM and Emulator Website Shuts Down Following Possible Lawsuit

If you have been downloading retro games from famous ROM site EmuParadise, you’ll be very disappointed to know that they won’t be providing any more games.

The one-stop emulator and ROM site has been in business for many years already but has decided to give up when they detected a possible lawsuit that could be directed at them. This announcement appeared several weeks after Nintendo filed a lawsuit against a similar emulator and ROM site LoveROMS and even LoveRETRO. Nintendo was even able to force an online Gameboy emulator to be taken down following the lawsuit.

Due to this, it is possible that EmuParadise decided to shut down to prevent being the next target of the game giant.

While EmuParadise did not say that Nintendo was the cause for their action, it is hard to denounce that Nintendo did have a hand in it. This happened right at the same time when Switch Online announced its new launch of its Classic Games Selection (to be released in September 2018).

EmuParadise has already slowly started to take down some Nintendo games in their collection. It’s not known whether or not they will be soon doing the same for other games as well. …

Super Smash Bros Ultimate Introduces King K. Rool and Other New Characters to the Roster

For those who have been following news about the latest Super Smash Bros game, Super Smash Bros: Ultimate, there’s been some pretty exciting news following up before its actual release. The first one is none other than the Kremling King of the Donkey Kong Universe, King K. Rool. King K. Rool has been the longtime villain of Donkey Kong and friends for many years but somehow has never made it to the Super Smash Bros roster. It seems that things will be a little bit different this time. In a Tweet made by Nintendo Versus, there were pictures of King K. Rool with a caption declaring the  Kremling leader King K. Rool coming to Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

In the picture, King K. Rool appears as his heavy hitter self with a golden belly. There are even pictures of him with his usual crown, a pirate costume, and a propeller, so this could actually be a sneak peek of what we’re about to see when the new Smash Bros finally comes out. Actually, the Kremling King has been a rather sought out and in-demand character that many fans have been clamoring to add to the list of characters. It seems like this time, they’re definitely going to get their wis…
