So here’s the back story: A heartless thief has stolen an old grandmother’s beloved green apples off her apple tree, and ol’ granny ain’t gonna sit there crying. Instead, she digs out her skates (probably from 50 years ago), dusts them off and sets off to nab the thief, and get what’s rightfully hers back.
Back when Heroes Call first came out on Android in late June, it had the price tag of free. Before long, I knew it was ridden with IAPs. And terrible IAPs, mind you. At that time, Heroes Call was the worst implementation of IAPs – with exponentially growing wait times and three different in-game currencies.
I had a Commodore 64 when I was a kid but didn’t get another PC until I was an adult in ‘99. I know for a fact that I missed a lot of great games in the gap between the two. There were games that covered all sorts of genres and play-styles and I missed the chance to play most of them. Luckily, mobile publishers have taken it upon themselves to reissue certain wonderful older titles that I would have never had the chance to play. One of the latest titles I came across in the Play Store is Broken Sword: The Director’s Cut. I do not remember anything about this title, but it did come out in ‘96 during my great computer-less period.
Mass Effect Infiltrator is a seemingly perfect fit for my Nexus 7 tablet. It looks great, offers mostly intuitive controls and pushes the boundaries of what we might be used to when it comes to mobile gaming. While much of that is accurate it’s closer to the truth to say that Mass Effect fans will be the true beneficiaries of this new game.
"Oh man! here we go! wait! where's the station!.....um......Found it!" The man says to his girlfriend as she rolls her eyes back at him. "Ugh! what am I doing here?" she asks herself jokingly. That's what I'd like to imagine the man and woman from in the intro to the game Outrun are saying.

Originally a PC title released last year, Auralux is a real-time strategy game with an ultra-simple design in all aspects of the game, be it the graphics, gameplay, sound or controls. I am serious when I say ‘ultra-simple’ – I have never played a game with such a stripped down design (no it’s not bad at all). Anyway, I have been waiting for some time for this game to make its way onto Android. Now that it’s here, does it live up to my expectations? Read on to find out.
