Glu Mobile has announced the launch of Dino Hunter: Deadly Shores on Facebook, iOS and Google Play. The game was inspired by the company’s popular Deer Hunter 2014, and sees players traveling to a mysterious island inhabited by dinosaurs.

Independent game developer Blue Fondue has announced the worldwide release of Crossword Combat, a browser-based word game that sees users completing a crossword grid with any words that come to mind, so long as they fit into the grid’s horizontal and vertical letter placements.
In each game, players have two minutes to fill the grid, with certain letters offering bonus points and others resulting in penalties. For instance, using the letters O or P could offer bonus points, while using X takes away points. These letters are different in each game. In addition, each game has a required letter, which must be used in at least one word on the grid.
Game Insight’s Smiley Boom will soon make its way to iOS and Android devices, but until then, users can play the match-three game on Facebook.

On each stage of the game, players are asked to complete certain requirements before moving onto the next area of town. These may ask gamers to earn a set number of points, remove special ice tiles from the board, and so on.
While Marvel is busy updating its newest Facebook game, Marvel: Avengers Alliance Tactics, that doesn’t mean the franchise’s original game has been left behind.
