With glowing hues reminiscent of the movie Tron and a pulsating soundtrack, Unpossible by Acceleroto spun into the Play Store today. Acceleroto has two other titles in the Play Store, Invasion Strike and Die in a Fire. I became aware of Acceleroto a few years ago when they produced the enjoyable endless runner game Rush City for iOS. Unpossible is a mind-bending, environment swirling, aesthetically pleasing game that will challenge your skills. It fits right in line with brutally difficult games like Wave Wave, Super Hexagon and most recently Duet. If you played Impossible Road and enjoyed it, you will be right at home with Unpossible.

Last week the newest Humble Mobile Bundle was launched with six pretty decent games. As with all Humble Bundles, a week has passed and now there are three additional games that have been added to it. These three new games are Carmageddon, Time Surfer and the somewhat unusual Llamas with Hats Cruise Catastrophe.
This year’s installment of the Madden NFL series on Android has been announced for a release on August 26, and is simply titled Madden Mobile. The game features touch-analog controls along with an “action button” to control running, and for my lack of football knowledge, meandering past other players.
Ripoff Birds is a new physics-based game featuring birds in what seems to be forming into a genre of its own; mobile bird games. This one takes a jab at other bird games that have ripped off other games while offering in the description’s words “truly original *cough* gameplay.”
Freemium titles are popular these days, well, because they’re free. Add the enticing combination of Ninjas and Martial arts tournament fighting and the formula almost solves itself. It’s a cash cow. Shadow Fight 2 has garnered a whopping 5,000,000 downloads in less than half of a month, taking a sharp katana to the face of existing premium fighting titles already in the marketplace. The franchise’s humble beginning started on facebook and had a very successful run on iOS devices, so the momentum was already primed for an Android release. Shadow Fight 2 eventually snuck its way onto Android to a not so stealthy response, but more akin to sake enriched Sumo wrestler in a China shop. So far for developers Nekki, Shadow Fight 2 has been a total success on the Android platform.
