Block Breaking games (tap a block that has 3 or more matching colored adjacent to it) don’t really stand out in quality usually however LineUp by LabPixies is one of the few exceptions. It’s been out for just over a month on the Android market and it’s too bad I just found it now because it was updated instead of when it was released.
Replica Island by Team Replica
Shadow Zone by NewGround is a turn based strategy game set in 1986 when Chernobyl’s 4th block has an accidental nuclear explosion and the area is sealed off. This game boasts 40+ hours of game play so it’s definitely not a short game you’ll be done with in a couple of hours. Now that I’ve gotten some real play time with this game, here is our review of it.
ShiVa3D by Stonetrip is a 3D gaming engine that has been used on pc and console based games for awhile now as well as used by many popular iPhone games. Stonetrip just announced they have included Android support with their Android Authorizing Tool which has just been released in it’s beta phase.
Battle for Mars by Larva Labs just received an update with a great feature…multiplayer! Now you can play against other people in this great turn based strategy game and multiplayer has Shroud of War enabled which means you can’t see where your enemy is until they are right on you (or the other way around).
Vacuum by Door-6 has been in Beta for a short while now with only us press people having a whack at it but the wait has ended. Vacuum has landed on the Android market along with all the cash prize details which start April 1st so you have some time to practice up and get ready to try to win some cash (and it’s a good amount too!).
Better Game Promotion
This isn’t to say I know everything there is to know about when it comes to promoting your game but as a developer myself, I do have a few tips to game developers (and developers of apps as well) that will certainly help promote your game and probably make a difference in whether or not someone buys/downloads your game.

I actually stumbled onto this game looking for something completely different but I’ve been pleasantly surprised.
I’ve seen this game on the Android market since it’s release and have wanted to try it out since the screen shots looked pretty interesting. T.T.D. by Infolife lets you control a spaceship within a set area while enemies spawn all around you making you move to dodge getting shot while shooting them in your little space.
Ready to improve your twitch gaming style to it’s fullest? Well this game doesn’t really help with that. However, if you want a pretty decent gallery shooting style game using characters from CS then you’ll probably enjoy CounterStrike Training by Calford. It’s a pretty simple but enjoyable tap game where you tap the screen to shoot people.
