Subway Train Simulator 2D Transforms People into Subway Train Operators

As a passenger, virtually everyone has ridden a subway (a.k.a. metro, underground, tube, etc.) at one time or another. But very few people have ever experienced what life is like for subway train operators, whose job is to keep everyone safe by skillfully navigating their train day after day. While performing that important job takes years of training and testing, now anyone can experience the next best thing by downloading the fun and free app “Subway Train Simulator 2D“.

 

Developed by Daniel Viktorin and available at no cost for iOS, Android, MacOS and Windows 10, Subway Train Simulator 2D features 89 stations that are connected by 21 unique lines spread across over 100 kilometers of underground, elevated, and underwater rails. Users must safely transport their fully-animated and lifelike passengers by controlling the speed, acceleration, and brakes of their train. Each successful trip earns coins, which can be used to unlock new lines, reveal new stations, and purchase upgrades.

Other special features that make Subway Train Simulator 2D the most extensive subway simulation game on the market include:

* Ultra-realistic train sounds
* Detailed “Eco City” map
* Authentic subway signalling system
* Visually spot other trains, including those heading in the opposite direction
* A “paint shop” to change any train’s appearance

 

Plus, at any time users can tap the question mark symbol in the game to understand their current situation.

 

Subway Train Simulator 2D (v1.2.18) is Free (with In-App Purchases) and available through the App Store. It is also available for Android, MacOS & Windows 10.

Club Soccer Director 2019 Release Marks the New Season

Marking the beginning of the new football season, Independent developer Go-Play-Games today announced that Club Soccer Director 2019 (CSD 2019), the latest iteration of its hit football management series has kicked off on The App Store.

 

This latest version features a raft of improvements and innovations over its predecessor including a huge choice of 38 leagues from new countries (including Portugal, Holland, Turkey, Russia, Scotland, Brazil), thousands more players and staff, new revenue opportunities, revamped AI and a new landscape view to work better on tablets.

 

While most soccer management games are focused on squad-level tactics, Club Soccer Director 2019 offers players in-depth control at the club-level. Players assume the role of the football Director in an existing or user-generated club from one of 38 leagues across 14 countries. With the ability to hire and fire at will, wannabe directors can impose their style on the squad by recruiting staff and skillfully negotiating the twice-yearly transfer window to find the best squad members.

 

As well as staff and squad management, player’s assume full control over their club’s facilities including the stadium, the training ground and the academy all of which can be upgraded and improved, yielding happier fans, better players, and brighter academy prospects. Club Soccer Director 2019 features even more way to generate income through negotiating deals including sponsorship, ticket prices, stadium naming rights and other commercial revenue generating opportunities. Meeting, or exceeding season objectives on a regular basis improves the Director’s reputation, giving players the choice of moving to one of over 800 clubs across 14 countries.

 

For anyone that likes to tinker with tactics, players have the option to override the manager’s decision on match days, including team lineup, formation and both in and out-of-possession tactics. Players can also dictate to the manager how they want him to play. Club Soccer Director 2019’s live-action match engine has been overhauled to give a more realistic match-day environment. This includes improved tactical setups from managers in which they adapt to matchday situations. There’s also real-time statistics, individual player overviews and four different game speeds – giving gamers as much or little control as they want. Players can also watch post-match interviews that look and feel like a real-life sports broadcast.

 

Club Soccer Director 2019 development is being led by Jim Scott, a football manager and coach with over 15 years of experience. As well as being a current football manager, Jim has also 20+ years developing and publishing sports games for console, PC, and mobile platforms.

Free TextGrabber for iOS Adds Real-Time Translation

ABBYY(R), a global provider of content intelligence solutions and services, today announced a major update to TextGrabber for iOS. The application now translates text in real time online and offline and is free to download with a premium subscription for a number of features.

 

The revamped TextGrabber instantly captures text in 61 languages and translates it in real time to 104 languages online and 10 languages offline. The app allows users to translate text of any color on any background directly on the camera preview screen eliminating the need to take a photo or crop it. In contrast to other translation apps, it does not require users to download languages in order to translate offline.

 

TextGrabber automatically identifies if the device has access to a stable Internet connection, and if so, uses it to deliver full-text translation into 104 languages in real time. If the device does not have Internet access, the app switches to offline translation, which is essential for travel and everyday situations like understanding menus, street signs, labels, and more. Offline translation works for 10 common languages including English, Spanish, French, German, Chinese, and Japanese. The user also has the option to switch to the offline mode manually in the settings.

 

From now on, TextGrabber for iOS is free to download. Upon installation, each user can leverage the full functionality of the app to capture, translate, and share three texts. After the three complimentary full-feature uses are over, they can still digitize texts and save them as notes in the app’s internal storage ” this functionality is free. If the user would like to access the full functionality again, they are offered to purchase a subscription for $0.5 a month for the first two months and $2 a month after that.

 

“We have added the new functionality to TextGrabber to help people travel with confidence, learn foreign languages, and communicate with ease. Now users will be able to download the app free of charge and use it to translate text in real time without effort or delay, online and offline. A Swiss army knife for any everyday situation involving text, the app empowers users to turn their mobile devices into digital transformation assets,” comments Bruce Orcutt, Vice-President, Head of Product Marketing at ABBYY.

 

As always, TextGrabber for iOS captures text on photo or in real time and connects it to action. The app helps to digitize books, magazines, manuals, screens, menus, posters, and street signs. The captured text can be copied, edited, shared, translated or read aloud via VoiceOver. All links, phone numbers, email addresses, street addresses and event details become clickable for the user to easily perform the corresponding task: follow, call, email, find on maps or add to the calendar. Text recognition is performed on the device. The technology works with 61 languages, the biggest number on the market in its category. As an additional feature, TextGrabber also works as a QR code reader. All the digitized texts and QR codes are saved in the app, easily accessible for further use.

 

TextGrabber also serves the needs of people with disabilities who can use it to capture and voice virtually any text from print, computer or TV screen. It improves accessibility of information, which is one of ABBYY’s core values and priorities.

 

The app complements ABBYY’s comprehensive portfolio of tools that simplify capture, digitization, and extraction of data. The company’s offering ranges from top-of-the-line mobile-based optical character recognition (OCR) to enterprise-level automated document processing enabled by machine learning and semantics.

 

Technical Requirements:
* Text recognition is performed on the device
* For online translation and sharing, an Internet connection is required
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 9.0 or later
* 123.6 MB

Intergalactic shooter Space Pioneer: Infinite Galaxies

Space Pioneer has been developed by the award-winning game publisher and developer Vivid Games, creator of the Real Boxing series. The game prides itself on its infinite galaxies of gorgeous yet hostile worlds to explore, populated by swarms of ferocious aliens and complimented by a pulsating sci-fi electro-pop soundtrack.

 

Intergalactic shooter Space Pioneer: Infinite Galaxies

 

Budding bounty hunters who choose to take up arms in the pursuit of fame, riches and the satisfaction of an extermination job will get to choose from a deadly arsenal of shotguns, flamethrowers, laser blasters and grenade launchers and more – each with their own upgrade path for enhanced killing power. Players can also select different support load-outs, including portable gun turrets and an Orbital Strike for when the brown stuff hits the fan. Players overwhelmed by the alien onslaught can rely on their trusty robot sidekick to provide additional cover fire as well as the familiar witty quote or two. As players progress through different worlds, they’ll be able to unlock skills to boost their offensive and defensive capabilities including increased firepower and shield enhancements.

 

From dense jungle planets to dry, canyon-filled landscapes, wannabe alien hunters will get up close and personal with a menagerie of overgrown bugs, flesh-eating plants and giant robots – all with a juicy price on their heads/thoraxes/tentacles. With each planet seemingly conquered, players will come face-to-face with the game’s main antagonist Xeldar, a multi-legged behemoth who grows stronger with each encounter.

 

Space Pioneer also features a vast variety of mission types and objectives from item-recovery to ship repairs. Gamers can also form their own space base to build and upgrade different building types, including the armoury for high-grade armour and the workshop for companion upgrades. Upgrades also provide striking visual changes to characters.

 

Players annihilating enemies at a rapid pace can further their war efforts by taking part in Horde Mode, a sophisticated wave-based mode in which gamers must do all that they can to survive against a barrage of different enemies to reign supreme.

 

Vivid Games will be publishing a number of additional titles in 2018 including platform fighter Mayhem Combat(TM) featuring an array of characters, elemental powers and multiplayer modes launching June 2018 and 3D racer Gravity Rider(TM), challenging players to speed through tracks featuring realistic physics-based obstacles coming August 2018.

Harry and Larry Challenges Gamers As It Leaves Them Laughing

Independent development team, Rasterzone Entertainment is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Harry and Larry 1.05, their new cartoon action game for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Players will guide twin brothers Harry and Larry through an animated story line and 24 obstacle-filled aisles, dodging obstacles along the way while collecting tasty treats.

 

 

Players will guide the game’s characters through each level, dodging obstacles such as fish crates, snowballs, tires, and many other hazards along the way. Each of the game’s 24 challenging levels features a different kind of tasty treat to collect. Treats include pineapples, strawberries, candy canes, cupcakes, and so much more.

 

“Harry and Larry is the type of game that you can play no matter where you’re at! You can play a level or two while you’re in line at the bank, riding the subway, or anywhere else you want to avoid boredom,” shares Rasterzone Entertainment founder Alan Scarantino. “No matter where you’re at, you can play the game. No internet connection is needed, as all levels are stored on your device!”

 

Harry and Larry automatically move forward through the store aisles while the player controls their shopping cart with a simple up or down swipe of their finger. Left-handed and right-handed players will both find it equally easy to control the action.

 

Features Include:
* Fast cartoon-based action
* Animated storyline entertains players between levels
* Guide brothers Harry and Larry through an obstacle-filled grocery store
* One-finger control method is easy for left-handed or right-handed players

* Gain temporary abilities that help clear each level
* Epic melodies play during each level
* Grab all the treats to unlock Retro Mode
* No ads

Each of the game’s 24 entertaining levels are set in one of four sections of the grocery store: boxed goods, the dairy section, the home and garden department, and even the seldom seen “Employees Only” back area of the store. Grab all of the treats in all 24 levels and unlock the special retro mode, featuring entertaining retro music and graphics.

 

Although the challenge increases with the completion of every level, players will find helpful objects along the way that unlock special abilities that will help them complete each level. Abilities include a one-use shield to protect against hazards, temporary invincibility, bounce bumpers that help grab extra treats, and speed-up and slow-down chambers that change the pace of the action.

 

“We had almost as much fun creating this game as players will have playing it,” exclaims Alan. “Plus, players won’t be subjected to any ads or in-app purchases required to play the game. Everything they require comes as part of the initial purchase and download in the App Store!”

 

Players are encouraged to take a cart for a spin, and Harry and Larry will come along for the ride. Grab some tasty treats for the trip but look out for those crates.
