#LINEBOLA is a new contest for Malaysian to vote your favorite team in FIFA World Cup 2014

LINE is one of the most used instant messaging smartphone apps in Malaysia to communicate with friends and family. On June 12, 2014. LINE Malaysia division started a contest for those who are using LINE apps could vote their favorite team. For example, Brazil and Croatia match on June 13, 2014 started on 4AM-6AM Malaysian time LINEBOLA is one of the platform for you to predict who will win and stand a chance to win some prizes.

The tricky part will be so many people voted the Brazil you will notice the differences as statistic showing that Malaysian favored Brazil will win Croatia at almost 80% vote against Croatia. As a host of World Cup 2014, there is reason to believe Brazil will win due to Brazilian team will have advantage on adapting the weather and crowd of fans sitting at high platform were mostly support and cheer them.

The prediction for Brazil will be the winner is fulfilled. Neymar and Oscar of Brazil team scored 3 although there were 1 goal by Croatia but it was not the case apparently it was a mistake by Marcelo in Brazil team strike a goal mistakenly to his own goal gate. In fact, Croatia gained first ever goal in FIFA World Cup 2014 versus Brazil with the help of Marcelo mistake.

So who will be taking away LINEBOLA contest prizes ?? It is still unknown LINE Malaysia did not showed who were the winners . I guess we still need to wait a little longer. The accumulated prizes worth RM100,000. The prizes is included smartphones, flash drives and tablets.

To join this LINE contest, you will first require LINE apps in your smartphone. This contest is not over yet. There is now a new vote taking place Spain vs Netherlands.

Astro Shaw made a game app inspired by the movie Apokalips X aired on local cinema on April, 2014

Login with your facebook account to save your game scores and unlock the feature to compete score with your friends

Speaking about local game app we are not aware we actually can make a good game or either we have such a talent to develop a good smartphone game app?

No such things that Malaysian does not have the talents. We have plentiful talented young smartphone app developers. 

The game app is named as "Larian Maut" Have you figure out how is the overall game content ? It actually like pyramid escape but more excitement. I called it as escape & slashing game category. It is not just escaping and jumping obstacles. It actually slashing bad guys off the screen as the bad guys will slow you down and big bad guys from behind is rushing to caught you.

Most of the time you are running in the game but you actually have extra fun. Let say riding a motorbike and utilizing super slashing move. Besides, the game mechanic is top notch. Do not expect you can buy new weapons or upgrading your gears but you actually can unlock new character to play.

I will give score of 4/5 because it game graphic is eye-catching and plentiful of wow factors. Definitely worth you to download it is only 40 MB. Moreover, I do not seen any heavy ads built-in the game.  

So much to catch up if want to enter top 5 in leaderboard

Smartphone Game Apps created inspired by Bomoh Malaysia

Robert's Google+

Smartphone Apps developer inspired by the event of Bomoh performing ritual finding MH370

Creativity and innovation ideas to make Bomoh apps available in Playstore since March 14, 2014. It had been downloaded by so many Android based smartphone users. 

Most of the game developers use the title "Bomoh" to attract users download the highly sensational subject associating with the missing airplane. They have taken the golden opportunity to make the title but the game is not just plain. 

I have downloaded most of the game developed by different persons but it always use the same game concept. The first one would be Bomoh + flappy bird concept. Developer simply recreated or replaced the flappy bird with something related to "Bomoh". It just a man flying with magic carpet or Bomoh using magic to fly. 

That is just one of the game concept they have used. I have found some of the apps actually are fun to play ! 
The title are "Bomoh Fly 3D" and "Flying Bomoh"  

Game developers usually utilize a highly sensational and eye-catching title for their app in order to attract user to download. They rake in substantial amount of advertising income putting ads in their highly downloaded app. Did they make a wrong decision or Do you think they have insulted some entity ? 

Bomoh app
Bomoh apps taken from smartphone
Some of the apps related to Bomoh I have downloaded were Bomoh MH370, Bomoh Fly 3D, Bomoh Shaman, BomohMH370Parody, Flying Bomoh, Bomoh 2, Flying Bomoh, Slap the Bomoh.

Bomoh Flying 3D
Flappy bird concept but replaced to bomoh in 3D developed using Unity platform. One of the best and fun. It is easier to score compare to flappy bird
As you can see above, most upper and most bottom part of the game have advertisements. Developer earns income if you clicked on it. It is not really very instrusive type and not really annoyed in some point.
