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 have a first-person casual dungeon crawler, a driving game where you destroy everything with a giant mace, another dungeon crawler with top-down shooter controls, a platform-shooter, a casual shake-sliding game, and one more bonus dungeon crawler. Without further ado:

Hammer Bomb

Hammer Bomb is an interesting anomaly: a pixelated (well, voxels, but you know what I mean) first-person runner that mixes conventional endless runner gameplay with dungeon crawling sensibilities. Players run along labyrinth stages collecting gear, avoiding traps, killing monsters, and eating lots and lots of junk food while admiring the Minecraft-inspired visuals and using simple tap-and-swipe controls. The game is free, and in-app purchases for currency are limited to two bucks.

Are you ready to enter dark mazes and dungeons - full of monster hordes and traps? Then brave the dungeon, Sir Hammer Bomb. Rescue your soldiers and find the treasure. Hammer Bomb is a new twist on dungeon style arcade games. Easy controls for anyone to play, but only a few will master. Drop bombs to open secret areas to find the best treasures. Go on quests looking for various types of treats. Cake, Pizza, Hot Dogs, Soda, and more.

Flail Rider

In Flail Rider, you drive a car with a giant ball and chain rolling behind it. Aside from the fact that it's an awesome concept from the Mad Max school of vehicular destruction, it's a fun way to combine physics and driving. The only real objective in the game is to smash everything on a given level within the time limit, earning upgraded cars and power-ups as you go along. New vehicles can be unlocked Flappy Birds-style for a dollar each, and there's a coin doubler for $4.

Blow EVERYTHING up with a giant flail attached to your vehicle. Flail Rider is a colorful, fast-paced, top down arcade racing game. Drive, drift, destroy and warp from one area to another. The more environment destroyed with your spiked ball, the higher the score. Collect coins to unlock new vehicles: Tank, Monster Truck, Tuk-Tuk, Hotrod or the Catmobile to name a few of the 50 cars available. Vehicles are spread in 3 classes: Small, Medium and Large.

The Slimeking's Tower (No ads)

The Slimeking's Tower is set up like a dungeon crawler, but the control scheme makes it more of a fast-paced, top-down shooter. It's kind of like the old Zelda and Rambo games had a bastard child. There are plenty of levels to explore and a variety of bad stuff to kill while you explore them, all without an in-app purchase to be seen. This paid version also has no ads, but if you'd prefer a free option, an ad-supported game is also available.

Prison Run and Gun

Prison Run and Gun is a classic Contra-style platforming game with, appropriately, lots and lots of gunplay. Though the setup is simple (you're a prisoner blasting his way out of the pen), the gameplay is fast and brutal with plenty of puzzle elements to lean on. The game is two dollars with no ads or in-app purchases, and it includes 30 stages.

Prison Run and Gun is a retro puzzle platformer with the modern gameplay and mechanics. The recent events in a state prison, involving Jake and the others, was a perfect moment for some prisoners to escape - you are one of them. Use your skills and the guns to break through 30 sections standing between you and the freedom .

Slide the Shakes

You know that movie scene where the bartender effortlessly slides a patron a drink across ten yards of perfectly-waxed bar top? This is that, made into a casual game. Your goal is to swipe with varying degrees of power to land the shake on the target, without letting it slip off the edge or any of the gaps or drops on the way. It's free with a single $1 in-app purchase for skipping levels.

The Greedy Cave

The Greedy Cave is a grid-based dungeon crawler. The art style is reminiscent of the hand-drawn characters in Don't Starve, but the root gameplay is much older, with the only real objective being to venture further into the cave and upgrade your weapons and spells. The levels are generated randomly, as is the loot, so fans of roguelike games should get a kick out of it. In-app purchases go up to a rather pricey $50.

In a land far, far away there once was a vast continent called Milton. It was a land where the power of rule came by the sword and the arcane, where Men who devoted themselves to the blade or to magecraft, could become the finest warriors, wisest wizards or the greatest adventurers. In this land, there are several kingdoms divided by borders but united through history. Countless stories of alliances, upheaval, and moments of peace bedeck this tapestry, but that is a tale for another day.
