Gameloft covers a wide variety of genres when it comes to the games they release but one that they do slightly better at then others tends to be the racing game genre. Today Gameloft just announced a new game coming to Android called Fast Five The Movie: Official Game. I’m going to let you all guess what movie this is based off of.

Dungeon Defenders: First Wave is a highly addictive game mixed between action-rpg and tower defense gameplay. It was developed using the Unreal Engine and supports both newer high-end single-core and dual-core Android devices. Originally released as a paid title, since the launch of Google’s in-app purchasing, it has gone free-to-play.
Today’s Amazon Free Paid App of the Day is now Fruit Ninja! Fruit Ninja has been a mega-hit all over the gaming world and that is no different on Android. Developed by Halfbrick Studios, the game has well over 100,000 downloads at around a dollar each. It has been rated over 18,000 times and is rated a strong 4.5/5 stars.
We knew it was going to happen, especially with the Xperia Play launch imminent. Sony has officially unleashed some Playstation One games onto the Android Market. If you saw the list of Xperia Play games that we posted yesterday, then you already have an idea as to what games are available. Either way, read on!
About two weeks ago we posted about an awesome little tower defense game with a bunch of RPG elements mixed into it themed around Pokemon. The game, called Pokemon Tower Defense, featured awesome retro-pixel art graphics, the original 150 Pokemon mixed together with tower defense gameplay and RPG leveling.
Rogue-like games, mostly of the RPG nature, are some of the more enjoyable games to play when it comes to the RPG genre. Always different due to the randomly generated levels and maps, they offer up lots of replay value. 100 Rogues is taking the rogue genre and trying to bring a ‘major refinement’ to it with their new game Auro.
Back in the mid-90s there was a game called Z. Now called Z: The Game, it is being remade for more modern times and is slated to be released on a multitude of platforms include Android. The great thing about Z is that most of the units in the game, which are robots, all seem to have their own unique (and entertaining) personalities.
Gameloft recently announced that they are releasing an Action/Adventure type of game called Backstab which would be exclusive to the Xperia Play for around one month. After that month it would head to other supported Android devices. The game looks pretty entertaining to say the least and should well with the Xperia Play controls.
If you are an owner of the PSX4Droid ver.2 emulator which emulates Playstation games, you’ll be sad to know that it has been pulled off the Android Market due to, according to Google, violations regarding the Android Market content policies. Developer ZodTTD, however, is blaming the launch of the Xperia Play.
