Maze Run Parkour Battle Royale halloween

You know what October means, right? It’s the time when everything gets just a little bit spookier, but with a touch of unbridled merriment and the promise of candy for your sweet tooth! There are costume parties, trick or treating adventures, horror movie binges, and endless cycles of scary pranks. It’s a time to enjoy being a kid as well as being a kid-at-heart.
In the spirit of the holidays, even your favorite games are also gearing up for the holiday. Events, limited availability items, and even overall looks are reflecting the festivities. Most MMOs even have new bosses or dungeons for the occasion. For example, there are limited edition Fortnite Items and skins available right now. Even single-player games are getting in on the fun, activating extra levels or scenes at certain dates.

Maze Run is no exception.

Halloween Celebrations

Judging by the teaser picture, Maze Run will have Halloween-themed mazes and new skins for its characters. The sleek female character wears a purple top hat and a yellow-green domino mask. She still wears the crop-top and skintight pants combo, just in different colors and her top has a skull and crossbones design. As for the male, he’s still wearing his old duds, only in darker hues such as navy blue and black. Also, he gets a deer head for some reason.

Pets may get the same treatment, in adorable pumpkin lantern costumes or similar designs. These costumes differ depending on the pet. At any rate, the graphics will have a makeover as well, reflecting the spirit of the holiday. We’ll have to see if there are Halloween-themed rewards or items in the game.

Enjoy Maze Run

Maze Run: Pets and Parkour  is a maze running game. The twist is that you have to get to the treasure before the dome of death gets to you. Good thing you get a pet to help you navigate through the twisting paths. Pets can come in the form of an adorable dog, fox, or peacock. They provide necessary boosts or power-ups that make the task of running around a labyrinth a much easier one. These power-ups come as perks such as Speed Boost, Way Finder, and Medikit.

It’s impressive that this game was only made by 5 people. Not only that, one of those five is actually a 10-year-old kid. They draw up maze layouts on Unity and subsequently made sketches for the UI. So if you have the time and talent to help, lend a hand to this small studio! Otherwise, you can take the time to point out what works and what doesn’t for you as you play along. That’s another way to support the game, other than playing it.

Download Maze Run, and go run for the best treasures now!

The Hottest Games of 2017

Games

The year is coming to an end, which means that it is time to showcase the top three most popular games of 2017. The games that are mentioned below are proven as favorites of the year with the help of the number of sales, postings, inquiries, and traffic. So, without further ado, here are the hottest games of 2017!

  1. PUBG – PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds

High traffic places PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds as number one in the hottest games of 2017. Even without the PlayerAuctions stats, it is easy to see that PUBG has been extremely popular among gamers for this year.

Players were able to obtain early access to the game earlier this year, and December 12th marked the official release for Xbox One and December 20th for PC. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds really hit the ground running, with countless games consisting of 100 players each, constantly battling to become the victor. Steam has data showing that current PUBG players number anywhere from 10 million to as high as 16.8 million. PUBG had more players playing through Steam than other popular games like Dota 2, CS: GO, and GTA V. If that’s not popular, then I don’t know what is!

  1. Rocket League

Rocket League is gradually and consistently increasing in popularity. How? Well, the Rocket League e-sports scene is flourishing with gaming tournaments being held all over the world. Every tournament has multiple companies that are sponsoring the events, which is huge because large companies will not advertise their products in tournaments or competitions if the number of viewers is low. Each year, the prize pool has been getting bigger and bigger for these tournaments as well.

In 2017, the number of Rocket League players was 33 million. Coincidentally, the same number of Rocket League copies were sold throughout the three platforms, with PS4 taking the highest portion of sales during the year. Psyonix’s stats show the number of players that are active on Rocket League each day is 1.6 million users. Each week, there are 3.3 million users, and each month has 6.1 million users respectively. With the vast amount of tradeable Rocket League items available, along with the number of players involved in the game,  has garnered a lot of traffic, thus making it number two on the list of the hottest games of 2017.

  1. Path of Exile

Path of Exile comes in at number three in the hottest games of 2017, however, it is nowhere near as popular as the other two previously mentioned. Believe it or not, PoE’s player base increased over 40%! The increase occurred after March 17, 2017, with the release of Patch 2.6.0. The game reached a peak of 113 thousand players. Steam Charts also show that Path of Exile reached a peak of 70 thousand players (150.46% in growth) in the last 30 days. Given this information, it must be noted that the game is not available in Steam in certain countries around the world, so it is a very respectable number!

Path of Exile is traded in quite often amongst the players involved in the game. Being a popular trading site has benefited from this and has seen a drastic increase in traffic with PoE related inquiries.

There you have it, the hottest games of 2017. Have you tried playing any of these games? Not yet? You should take part in all of the fun and excitement these games can bring this holiday season! You can expect these games to get more popular in the coming year, 2018!
