Android Games Headlines is a brand new weekly feature that we’re going to run on every Sunday from now on. We run a lot of content on Droid Gamers, and it’s often difficult to keep on top of it on a daily basis.
This feature is designed for the busy reader, who only really has time to dig through the site on a weekend. For you, we’re going to put all of the headlines together in one place – hence the name.
In tandem, we’d recommend reading the Best New Android Games and Updates This Week feature, as it includes stories we didn’t list here, and might recommend you a new game or two to boot.
