If there's one thing that our phones and tablets do really well, it's play games from the 90s. And if there's one thing that games from the 90s do really well, it's make crap explode. Expendable: Rearmed (which has nothing to do with Sylvester Stallone) is a third-person shooter set in the distant future where your clone army is being marched in, one at a time, to kill everyone and blow up everything. Things used to be so much simpler, didn't they?

The game actually looks pretty dang similar to the N64 niche classic Jet Force Gemini. Expendable: Rearmed (a remake  Millenium Solider: Expendable) promises a complete lack of loading times, a host of new achievements, global leaderboards, and every action hero's two favorite words: "weapons galore."

Expendable is available on the Play Store for $2.99. Tegra 3 owners will have a nice set of effects specially optimized for their devices, but Retrobomb promises that it will run just fine on Tegra3 , Snapdragon, Adreno, Mali and SGX hardware. So, basically, just about every modern device.

    This is great! Console games often have depth that mobile casual titles lack. For $2.99 it's a steal. I may have to get this..

    I think gun bros ruined top down shooters for me. I haven't really wanted to get into one since. I played that way too much and it was so buggy (in the beginning, I have no idea about now).

    Well, the title 'shoot everything' takes the wonder of what this game is about.

    I purchased it and its not bad. half way through it already i think. The gameplay is fun and has alot of variety to it. Would be a whole lot better though with an actual on screen button for throwing grenades and switching weapons.

    Is this an Android exclusive?

    Is there any controller support? I'd love to use this with a sixaxis.

    I remember when this game was bundled with my dad's old computer back in 1998. It was the shiiiiiiz back then. I might buy this one just for nostalgia's sake.

    Snapdragon is a SoC that uses Adreno :P Not a GPU by itself.
