I haven’t played the first game in the Towelfight series, but I can only imagine that it has to be something similar to this second one. That means over-the-top humor, a lot of action and a definite indie feel to the whole experience. Of course, I can’t say that this means that the entire experience is quite as original as I’d like it to be, at least in some ways. I like the fact that the artwork in game is almost rough and primitive looking, as though it was drawn or painted by a high-schooler. Don’t get me wrong, I drew my way through high school (much to the disappointment of my teachers) and even though I expect a little more polish when I play an actual, real-deal Android game I like the fact that the game looks rough. So much art in the Play market is pretty but has no soul. Towelfight 2 isn’t pretty, but at least I can tell what the creators were going for.

Disney has announced that they will be delaying the launch of their big cross-platform toy and video game project called Disney Infinity. Back in January Disney announced a rather huge project that they had been working on where it blended physical toys with actual video gaming. The gaming portion of the project is cross-platform including mobile and features a sandbox style of gameplay but it is much more than that. Think Skylanders but on a much more massive and interactive, ever expanding scale.
We spotted back in February that High Voltage Games were gearing up to release their FPS game The Conduit onto Tegra-based Android devices this month. Originally released onto the Wii, The Conduit is getting HD tags tacked onto it and has had the controls reworked in order to be properly played on mobile devices.
At the beginning of March we mentioned that Rovio has teamed up with DreamWorks and the two companies were going to be bringing a spin-off game for the movie The Croods to Android and iOS. Well The Croods have come themselves out of their caves and are now available on Google Play to download. As you can tell, The Croods is based off of the upcoming movie of the same name slated for release in theaters on March 22nd, 2013.
Fans of the Chaos Rings franchise that haven’t yet picked up either Chaos Rings or Chaos Rings Omega might want to consider doing so as Square Enix has put both titles on sale at a steep discount in celebration of Chaos Rings II being released onto Google Play. Both games will be on sale starting today for one week only.
Yesterday we talked about EightyEight Games who were getting ready to release their rather cool retro style Puzzle-RPG game 10000000 onto Google Play today. Sure enough 10000000 has arrived right on time for Android gamers to sink their time into because it can be quite the addictive game.
Glu Mobile sent us word earlier on this week about a game that would be heading our way sometime this week called Heroes of Destiny. This new game is now here and is a full fledged Action-RPG title that looks like it takes influence, at least visually, from other popular games like Arcane Legends and Dungeon Defenders.
Howdy everyone. Today we have two different games that are pretty fun and really not related in any way. They have been on my Android device for a while so I decided that I need to finish up my review of them. Enjoy
