You may remember Leisure Suit Larry - an "adventure game," following a middle-aged man in his pursuit of attractive women, navigating through pixelated environments featuring up to 16 colors.

Replay Games is working on reviving the risqué mid-80s hit, and bringing it to a variety of platforms, including Android.

Replay says that if all goes well with their initial remake, they will look into remaking the rest of the series as well, for a total of seven games, and potentially making direct ports of the originals as well.

T-Mobile announced today some interesting updates to Bobsled. In collaboration with Vivox, Bobsled is T-Mobile's bid at providing "a universal way to communicate however and whenever when connected to the Web."

First in the lineup of T-Mobile's improvements to its Bobsled service is the ability to call, message, and voice message their Facebook contacts at any time. To implement this service, T-Mobile offers the ability to turn on a sort of Bobsled toolbar (in the form of a Facebook app) - a tab that displays in your browser (meaning you see it almost all the time) and slides along web pages, allowing for quick access to calling options.

AT&T has just given customers a handful of devices to look forward to, announcing earlier this evening the addition of five new Android devices to their fall lineup. The new line is largely populated by Android devices aimed at budget-conscious users, but those looking for higher-end devices will have plenty of options as well.

Motorola Atrix 2

First up is the Motorola Atrix 2. Following up on the original Atrix, it's compatible with a special 'Lapdock' to increase productivity.

Earlier today, Google officially debuted Dart, their new programming language intended to make web development easy by offering a somewhat familiar structure with enough flexibility to open up new possibilities, including the ability to run on "all modern web browsers and environments."

Google's dedicated Dart website features the language spec and preliminary development tools as open source, giving developers a chance to get acquainted with the language during its early development.

Qualcomm just announced yesterday the details surrounding its Snapdragon S4 System on Chip, promising an impressive array of improvements over their current-gen line.

To begin with, the Snapdragon S4 shifts away from previous 45nm constructions and boasts a trim 28nm process technology, which will improve power consumption and thermal performance, as well as free up more space by using smaller components.

In the CPU department, the S4 CPU, codenamed Krait, will top at 60% better performance over Qualcomm's current Scorpion line, reaching speeds from 1.5 to 2.5GHz, while utilizing asynchronous multiprocessing and dual-channel memory.

It seems that sneak peeks of the next Nexus device - and its firmware - have really been picking up steam in recent days. Just after we were treated to video of Ice Cream Sandwich running on a Nexus S, the folks at MyDroidWorld have released the so-called Nexus Prime's boot animation to the public, and it looks, well, awesome. I've taken the liberty of putting together a clip of the boot animation by itself for your viewing pleasure:

If you need a refresher on how to install a custom boot animation, check out our guide on the subject.

Looking to expand the selection of first person shooter games available for Android, Paladin Entertainment Co. Ltd. has brought us Gun Strike. The game may not fully reflect one's expectations of a typical FPS, however. Gun Strike features cutesy, stylized baddies, and the player stays stationary throughout most of the game, shooting at enemies as they run, roll, or pop into and across the environment, using a wide variety of weapons, from hand guns to assault rifles to grenades.

Making their first entry into the Android Market, the developers at Enfeel Inc. may have struck gold with Birzzle, a fast-paced puzzle game that offers familiar "match three," Bejeweled-style gameplay with a refreshing twist.

While the game ostensibly relies on the tried-and-true premise of matching objects in a grid formation, Birzzle offers something a bit new - the player can drag and drop birds to create groups, but can only grab hold of those birds who are not blocked by others.
