While it may be a bit on the smaller side of things, if you really want to scratch that FPS itch you may be having while out and about, then you will be happy to know that you can play Valve’s Half-Life on your Android Wear watch.

The big day is almost upon us and even though it is the middle of the Summer, it almost really does feel like Black Friday in a lot of ways.

Set for release on next week onto Android, Forest Home is a new puzzle game from The Binary Hill (the devs behind Mini Motor Racing, and other games). In this game, players are looking to guide cutesy, woodland animals back to their homes.

Rolocule Games has announced that they have released a new Android game, called Motion Tennis Cast. This game looks like it would play much like the tennis game within Wii Sports would, as it uses motion to control what’s happening. The major difference though is in hardware, where players would only need “screens like HDTV, Smart TV or a web browser using screen cast software – Chromecast, Miracast or AllShareCast.”. The trailer demos how it works, which is basically to open the game, cast it, and you’re off to playing virtual tennis, swinging your phone as if it were a tennis racket, while seeing the game get played in a PC browser or TV.

Back in the Summer of last year a rather neat RPG landed onto Android called Widget RPG.
