Get some free shoot 'em up action with JoyJoy on BlackBerry 10

By James Richardson on 4 Aug 2014 08:58 am EDT

If you have the Amazon Appstore installed on your BlackBerry 10 handset you'll know that they give away a paid app for free each day. Today they have a game up for grabs called JoyJoy and I thought it was worth checking out. And I'm sure glad I did as it's a right bobby dazzler!

JoyJoy is a space shoot 'em up style game with a bunch of different levels and challenges as well as a ton of weapons that you can pick up along the way. With 5 difficulty levels to choose from you can be sure to start easy and work your way up.

The idea here is to fly your craft around the display shooting all the baddies. You control your craft using on-screen controls. On the bottom left of the display is your virtual joypad for moving and also an 'UltraFire' tab. Then over on the right is your main fire joypad which allows you to fire in any direction, and also the change weapon tab.

I loaded this one up on my Z30 today and have been having a blast (excuse the pun). I doubt this one will work on the Q series devices but I've not tried, so if you do and it does run please let us know?

It's colorful, sounds good and feels smooth. Overall, a fantastic game and even better when free!

Didn't he yesterday?

Feed the bugs...

I'm all pro native apps, but using this to display Android capabilities and highlight the coming Amazon app store integration to get some mainstream appeal and prove the app gap has been largely eliminated might be a good thing. Now can I say this in less words...

Please stop with the Android stuff. Aren't there any new native apps that you can review. Let's encourage the few developers still working on native applications.

Exactly ^^^^^
Fine, we can run Android apps and Amazon will be preloaded, how about leaving it at that and just promote native app/developers

I'm all for giving special attention to native developers and their apps, but I don't think we can ignore the reality that going forward, Android apps make up the lion's share of what runs on our BlackBerrys.

If there's a good app or game out there and my hardware can run it, I want to know.

Personally I like knowing good apps and games that work from the Amazon store, but maybe it should be split. I still care about apps making their way to the BlackBerry App store.

Yes, choice is good. But if I wanted to see reviews of Android apps., I'd go to Android Central.

Could you swap batteries with a mate to test?

Better check and ask your question in the forums....
