The beta for their upcoming game Crazy Coasters is on Google Play, so if you have yet to join in the rollercoaster chaos (complete with entertaining game-over gifs) be sure to check it out.

What makes a mobile game a hit? Having something fun, easy to play and unique is a certainly good way to get the ball rolling. Local developer Whacky Brew is working on a game that does just that, and now they’re looking for iOS beta testers to take Whacky Ball for a spin.
Whacky Ball is a challenging game of balls for iPhone and iPad that uses your device’s camera to transport you onto the screen and into the game action. Use your hands or head to keep the balls up in the air before shooting for goal.
Check out the video below to get an idea of the wacky gameplay on offer. To join the beta, simply shoot an email to email@example.com and they’ll get you in the game.
Local developer 42 BYTES recently released the alpha of their upcoming mobile game MOK, and they are now in need of some extraterrestrial testers. MOK features a host of cute little aliens trying to get to a party on time, all the while avoiding every manner of space obstacle.
It’s designed entirely in pencil and it’s about a cute little alien called MOK who is picking up his alien friends to attend a party.
The player is responsible to navigate the alien ship through different worlds (spiky field of thorns, moving bubbles etc) and tries to land beside his friends who excitedly jump up and down and then join him in his little ship.
