There’s a lot going on in the world of Android gaming. If you struggle to keep up, this is the article for you. Every Sunday we round-up the most interesting headlines of the week, so you can chomp through seven days of intel in a single sitting.
We don’t write about new games, though. We save that for our Games of the Week roundup.
For the next few days, Slayaway Camp is on sale for 99c, which is two dollars cheaper than usual. Why should you care? Because the game is an ingenious and hilarious puzzler that takes a dollop of ‘80s pastiche and applies it to a well-crafted sliding puzzle mechanic.
