Retro-style arcade space shooter Vritra flies onto Android

A new retro-style arcade shooter has landed on Google Play called Vritra. Developed by Salvo Inc., this particular arcade shooter is almost a bullet hell type of shooter. We say almost because while there is a lot of bullets to dodge and shoot, there isn’t the amount you would find in a true bullet hell game but there is more than what you find in your average arcade shooter.


Poll: Do you use physical controllers to play games on your Android phone or tablet?

Something that has become fairly common this year is to see a new controller launching or starting its Kickstarter drive every now and again. I’ve used a PS2 controller (yeah I know, freaking dated) to test out a few games in the past. Like recently, Zombie Driver THD was totally unplayable without the controller (they have rectified this though with a new update). So in that case, the controller made a whole lot of difference. In other games, especially competitive multiplayer ones like Shadowgun: DeadZone, having a physical controller puts you at an (unfair) advantage against the rest of the players.

Well the first one is Gameloft’s MMORPG Order & Chaos Online which recent got updated with a plethora of new content such as a new dungeon, mounts and PvP arenas and also had its monthly subscription fee removed.
