Grim Fandango is a point-and-click adventure game that was originally developed and released by Lucas Arts for Windows, back in '98. It was a game that has always intrigued me from afar, with it's apparent flair that draws inspiration from the Day of the Dead, but I never actually got around to it. With its release on to Android, I was looking forward to sinking my teeth into it.
Sleepyhead Studios founded their studio in March of last year. One of their first games is Barking Irons. Another title could be how the west was won. Barking Irons is a fun and fast arcade shooter with excellent controls. It is you against a host of enemies in this game full of wonderful pixels. If you haven't played it already, you should give it a shot.
Finding a match-3 puzzle game on any platform, be it Android or something else, certainly isn't hard to do. Finding a good one, however, is a lot more difficult. YOLORush is one that falls into the category of decent time killers and combines match-3 puzzling with a one-on-one combat game.
Fury Road Survivor glistens with voxels of beauty. I am finding it hard to believe that a game with voxels can look so impressive, but it does. The sand shimmers, explosions skyrocket into the air and mobile combat couldn't be finer. If you like recently released driving games like Pako Car Chase Simulator or Splash cars, then you will want to look into Fury Road Survivor by Tiny Games.
EA and Chillingo teamed up with ECC Games to produce One Tap Tennis. It is now available in the Google Play Store. I have played many tennis games available on mobile devices and consoles. I am a huge fan of tennis and play it whenever I have an opportunity. I was surprised and well pleased when I played One Tap Tennis. In short, it is one of the best one-touch tennis games you will ever play.
Mekorama is a remarkable puzzle game that has been released for Android. It is unusual that a game is released on the weekend, but this one would be welcome anytime it hit the Play Store. Martin Magni, the creator of Odd Bot Out has released his latest title for Android and iOS. It is labeled as a Diorama puzzle game and it is free to play too. Don't throw your hands up in dismay just yet. You can also name the price you want to pay for the game. In an interesting and welcome twist to the free-to-play structure, Mr. Magni is giving gamers the best of both worlds.
Spry Fox has released some popular games for Android. I am sure you are familiar with the cute little bears that were the main focus of Alphabear and Triple Town. Spry Fox has even tackled strategy games with Steambirds, which is a classic and a favorite of mine. Their latest game takes those cute little bears from Alphabears, and throws them into an arena to take down tough enemies in Bushido Bear.
Tormentum is a point-and-click adventure that recently got released onto Android. I think that the game's selling point is the is the setting and atmosphere, as well as the puzzles and choices as it really delivers on dark and creepy. There's other areas where it comes up short though, but those issues are nothing that destroy the experience, nor are they anything that can't be fixed.
Angry Birds Action was released last week and I immediately downloaded it to give it a try. Featuring the irritated fowls in a new setting and perspective, did this new addition to the franchise brighten up our day just a little bit more each time we play it? Let's find out shall we!
Last weekend my youngest daughter mentioned she wanted to play Roblox more than a few times and as she usually talks almost nothing but Minecraft, I decided to find out why the sudden change. Roblox is an adventure game by Roblox Corporation and was originally released in 2006 and then on July 16, 2014 for the Google Play store.
Fan sites and generally anything online getting hacked isn't always news, even when it is video gaming related. However, when they are big in terms of accounts affected, like the Playstation hacks, it tends to get noticed. So far Minecraft on any platform has managed to stay fairly secure but unfortunately that isn't the case anymore as a major fan site for Minecraft: Pocket Edition, called Lifeboat, was hacked.
