I thought hard for a moment as to whether or not I was going to post about this new application. While it does pertain to gaming and Android, it isn’t exactly gaming ON Android which is usually what we try to stick to. Blizzard just released their Remote Auction House application for Android devices which allows you to view, bid and more on auctions houses your characters access.
One of our followers on Twitter commented on how we need an educational time waster. Well there is a new game out on the market called Atomic, developed by Bad Pixel, in which you have to reconstruct molecules that have their parts scattered around the playing field. While learning the parts of molecules and how they are built, you also have some tricky puzzles to solve.
In the pursuit of finding more games with the ability to just pick up and play more as a quick time kill than anything else I stumbled onto Falling Ball, developed by Reverie Game. Falling Ball is a game where you control a stickman via the accelerometer and dodge bouncing balls. As the game progresses, more balls come into play with different bouncing patterns.
While keeping in the spirit of all things dice related, there is another new game available on the Android market. Dice Wars Online, developed by Eingrad, is a MMO Risk style game using dice. With up to 5 players on a map, your goal is to conquer the entire map just like in Risk, using dice as your weapons and troops. You can also level yourself up to Level 50.
Most people have played the pig dice game or a variant of it. Well now you can play it on your Android phone with a game called Cow Craps, developed by WB Games. In Cow Craps you roll your two cow ‘dice’ and depending on how they land you gain points and the first to 100 points or over wins. This game also features the ability to play against another person.
Here is another addictive little time killer called Bistro Cook, developed by Quasar Studios. While not an overly complicated game to play, it’s actually fairly addictive once you start getting into it. In this game your goal is to cook and fill orders as fast as you can but also making sure you don’t burn them in the process which is easier said then done.
Pitman, released by Alawar Entertainment, is a gem miner style game where you control a mining/harvester machine to dig around every stage and collect as much of the gems and gold you find without dieing. While the concept is nothing new for the most part, the execution is fairly well done with original graphics and sounds throughout the game.
It seems as though noted emulator guru ZodTTD has teamed up with Yonghz (Android emulator guru) and are currently working on a Playstation emulator for Android phones. Yes, a playstation emulator. This means all those games you loved to play when the Playstation was the best there was out you can now play on your Android phone. FFVII anyone?
Usually I don’t go for the typing word games unless they look extremely good. Typing Zombies, developed by GoodTEAM Lab, actually caught my attention because of the name. Anything with zombies in the name always attracts my attention. With this game, you are presented with zombies who want to eat your brains and to destroy them you have to type the word above their heads.
