If you are old enough to remember the good ole arcade days where you could drop a silly amount of quarters into a game or fifty in less than a few hours from the time you entered the arcade. One game that was quite popular was called Legend of Kage and now it looks like this arcade classic gets to live on but instead of in an arcade, it gets to live now on our Android devices thanks to developers RunSystem Corp.

While there are plenty of tower defense and siege games out there on the Google Play store, very few have you playing as the offensive party and not the defensive one. However, that is exactly what happens in a new game by Flare Games called Royal Revolt. Wrapped up in some solid 3D graphics, you will be in charge of trying to take back your father’s castles that has been stolen from you.
While not an entirely new game these days, 10tons’ Boom Brigade 2 is still a great game to play and now those of you who have Kindle Fire devices can snag a copy of this rather unique game off of the Amazon AppStore finally. For those of you unfamiliar with the game, let us dive into it a little to help refresh your memory a bit.
Townsmen, a new virtual city builder by Handygames, is so enjoyable that I had a hard time putting it down. The strange thing is that there isn’t much to the game, if we could even call it a game. Really the title is more akin to those cool ant farms we had as a kid, and possibly related more closely to those giant ant farms that we see in a zoo or private collection. I sat and watched as my hands worked, unable to control what they were doing. This game, this tiny virtual world, had taken over my body and kept me glued to my Nexus 7 tablet. Why did this happen? I have no idea.
Infinite Dreams and their hit game Shoot the Zombirds got a Halloween update last year and now this year seems like the game will once again receive a new Halloween themed update soon. In this game it is your job to defend little Pumpkids against the demonic hordes of undead birds, but that is just the normal game and not the Halloween update.
I’ve been using the Acer Iconia Tab A510 as my primary Android device ever since I sold my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 back in May, and there was no bigger frustration than coming to know that my device was basically unsupported by Gameloft. Up until a few hours ago, only a handful (and by a handful I mean six) games were supported. I can’t recall all six, but Let’s Golf HD, Men in Black and the two latest games in the Asphalt series were among four of the supported games.
If there is one thing that Rovio knows how to do, and do it well, is merchandise the ever living hell out of Angry Birds and soon to be doing the same for Bad Piggies I’m sure. However, today’s newly announced partnership is about Angry Birds who will now be a part of McDonalds in a new cross-promotion between the two companies.
The closer we get to Halloween, the more games will be updating their content with Halloween themed stuff. This holds true for Madfinger Games who have begin teasing an Halloween themed update that should be arriving soon for their zombie filled FPS game Dead Trigger. So what will be coming in this new update?
Microsoft’s Xbox SmartGlass has had it’s cameo at a few events over the Summer and now we get to have a bit more of a solid release time frame for when it would be arriving to mobile platforms. That’s right, platforms, as in plural. Not only will Windows 8 mobile be getting it but so will iOS and Android as well. Of course Microsoft products will get it first while iOS and Android are slated to get SmartGlass sometime in early 2013.
