While we mostly stick to gaming on this site, we do also cover Android apps as well. This is, of course, as long as they are gaming related in some fashion, whether it be a companion app, guides, or in this case, an application meant for improving performance of your Android device. You can only game as good as your device is and that doesn't just include hardware specs.

This is a good week to be an Android gamer. There are some excellent games that should be hitting the Play Store. Sometimes gaming in the Android community means we have to wait for some titles after they have been released on iOS. That is the case with Camouflaj and Logan's highly praised game Republique. What is so great about waiting this time? Republique's game delivery system has been episodic. The first two episodes have already been released on iOS. The Android community will be able to pick up Episodes 1, 2 and 3, when Episode 3 is released Thursday, October 23rd. The game will be available in the Play Store and the Amazon App Store. Episode One has already been released in the Amazon App Store, but only for Kindle Fire devices. Republique has an intriguing story and an amazing heroine as the main protagonist.
