Samsung has announced some new, gaming specific features for their upcoming flagship devices. They’ve added or tweaked a handful of things, compared to previous releases. If these pan out, it could mean that gamers take these phones more seriously. The models in question are the Samsung Galaxy S7, and the SGS7 Edge.

A few days ago we reported on Square Enix and Nvidia basically teaming up to bring a few of Square Enix’s other games over to Shield devices. In that announcement four games were mentioned, although more titles were hinted, all of which were labeled as coming soon. Well one of those games, the critically-acclaimed action puzzle game Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, is now available for Shield devices via GeForce Now.
Welcome to the DroidGamers Indie Spotlight. As the amount of games being released in the Play Store increase exponentially, some really great games get overlooked. Sometimes, it is even more difficult, being an Independent Game developer to get your game noticed. As a new column, DroidGamers will be highlighting Indie Game Developers that show great promise in game design. What indie means can vary, but we will try to focus on smaller studios and excellent game content. First up is Eugeny Butakov, creator of the excellent motorcycle trials type game, Psebay.
Shield owners with a GeForce Now membership can now stream SOMA, the latest terrifying creation from Frictional Games, the masters of psychological horror. Readers who have played any of their previous Penumbra or Amnesia titles will know exactly what we’re talking about here, but let’s clarify things for those who don’t.
tinyBuild’s rather popular game Punch Club only recently made it onto mobile devices, while PC gamers have had the pleasure of playing this game for a little bit longer, but not by much. Well apparently this game has done rather good for itself since its release, breaking the $2 million in total sale mark with sales across all platforms.
Indie developers Brain&Brain have released a new trailer for their upcoming title Burly Men at Sea. This particular folklore adventure is actually really interesting looking, mainly thanks to its rather unique storybook narrative style, both in terms of gameplay and its visuals.
Plenty of Virtual Reality news today as Samsung has made it an official ‘thing’ that if you are planning to pre-order one of the newly announced Galaxy S7 devices, you’ll also receive a Gear VR bundle with it for free. So what comes in the free Gear VR bundle? Well, it’s actually not a bad little deal.
Released by Bee the Swarm, Zombees is a new dual stick shooter for Android. Players will assume the role of the sole bee that’s attempting to surviving the insect equivalency of the zombie Apocalypse, brought about by insecticides. There are multiple protagonists to choose from, with a variety of stats that differ for each one. The game includes different weapons that are dropped when Zombees are killed, as well as health and speed boosts. The game includes 25 levels (with the possibility of more to come).
