Nvidia has pushed out a new OTA update, that being update 1.2, for their Tegra K1 Shield tablet this afternoon. This update, which is mainly bug fixes and optimizations, bumps the Android version up to 6.0.1 for this particular Shield device. Before anyone asks however, the LTE version’s update is still being worked on, so you’ll be sticking with Android 5.1.1 for a bit longer.

Released by ForthWardStudios, Aurora: Quarantine is a new entrant into the balance ball genre. Set in the year 2098, the world has succumbed to pollution and the misuse of resources.

Back at the end of March Snail Games announced the arrival of Taichi Panda Heroes which was heading into closed beta testing that day. Since then we have been playing in the closed beta, which is actually quite a lot of fun. Today, however, Taichi Panda Heroes has dropped the closed beta tags and instead soft launched in a few select regions.
If you’re a fan of indie games, puzzle games, or both, then there is a new title heading to Android soon that you’ll want to keep an eye out for called Zenge.

This may not be 100% Android game related but it is pretty damn cool nonetheless. Someone has decided to port the ridiculously difficult Flappy Birds game to be playable on the black and white digital screen used on their Vape box mod. The game is running, fully playable mind you, on the screen of a eVic-VTC Mini e-cigarette.
A few days ago, DroidGamers was one of the first media sites to uncover the new gem of a game called Goo Saga. You can read our brief review of the game here. The great news is that we have been talking with Toka Loka Games over the past couple of days after they saw our article. They kindly decided to team up with us to give away ten free promo codes for the game.
Rovio, makers of all things avian and angry, have released a new game into the Angry Birds franchise called Angry Birds Action! The game is currently being rolled out softly in a few select regions, so I haven’t had the opportunity to try it out yet.

Shortly after the release of Minecraft: Pocket Edition, one of the main features everyone wanted was some sort of server service where players could join up and play together, just like the PC version of Minecraft. This was to be Minecraft Realms, which was going to be hosted by Mojang themselves. Of course players of the PC version could always set up their own servers and a lot of players did. However getting that done for Minecraft: Pocket Edition was nowhere as easy, although with the launch of PocketMine it did become easier for sure.
