Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got a 2D WWI dogfight shooter, a pirate shuffleboard game (yes, really), and an excellent example of why you don't give guns to monkeys. Without further ado:

Six O'Clock High

I'm a sucker for good atmosphere, and Six O'Clock High has it in spades... or perhaps more appropriately, aces. The gameplay is a lot like Mini Squadron: a 2D playing field with lots of enemy planes to shoot down, rotated 90 degrees from your typical shoot-em-up so that there are plenty of loops and Immelmann turns. This game gives the whole affair a World War One makeover, complete with biplanes and some basic 3D graphics. The huge bosses are especially impressive.

Six O'Clock High is a chaotic new aerial dogfighting game. Take to the skies with super easy and intuitive controls, luscious unique graphics and a thirst for gunpowder! It's all about becoming an aerial ninja by piloting your plane throughout waves of increasingly skilled enemies. The best fighter aces will be sent against you, do you have what it takes to win the day? Earn upgrade points after each wave to spend on 14 different aircraft upgrades. From titanium armour and rockets to eye exams and a full English breakfast. Yes you read that correctly.

Edge of the World

Pirates are better than zombies in just about every way. Better scenery, better music, and best of all, pirates haven't been done to death in every facet of pop culture yet. Edge of the World takes the high seas theme and applies it to shuffleboard, with surprisingly fun results: you've got to fling your ship towards the flat edge of the planet, getting the most points without falling off. The sound effects as the various themed pirates fall off the edge should elicit a few chuckles.

Jungle Rampage

As both Charlton Heston and Eddie Izzard can attest, things always go downhill after the monkeys find the guns. Jungle Rampage is a pretty basic shoot-em-up that combines Gun Bros with Ape Escape. You've got a collection of upgradeable weapons that can be dual-wielded, plus armor and various stat boosts. Gameplay and graphics are pretty basic, but you should be able to get a few minutes of damn dirty fun out of it.

    Six O'Clock High is clearly inspired by the PD game "Dogfight" on Amiga :-)

      It reminds me of the old arcade game "Time Pilot". I dumped a lot of quarters in that game :)
