You could almost guess Castle Doombad is an Adult Swim title without being told. Adult Swim has a very distinct, delightfully diabolical style to its mobile games, and this one is no exception. Castle Doombad contains devious traps, a kidnapped princess, and an evil super villain. However, you are the super villain who kidnapped the princess and stuck her in the dungeon guarded by traps. How's that for a twist?

The weekend has ended and it's back to the daily grind, but you can at least entertain yourself in some small way with reasonably priced apps and games. We've got a line on some good deals, so read on, assuming the boss isn't looking over your shoulder.

Now that the Chromecast is truly coming into its own, Google can turn its attention to the little things. Specifically, the icon. The current cast icon design works fine for some apps, but not so well for others. The new guidelines are aimed at making the status of the icon easier to discern across a range of apps designs.

The old icon relied on a change in color to indicate connected/non-connected (see below).

Our Austrian friends might be in for a surprise the next time they stroll into a local retailer. Google Play gift cards are now live in Austria with no official announcement. The Google support page hasn't even been updated to list Austria yet. That's cool and all, but how about a little heads up next time, Google?

Kobo is not a name that you hear a lot in the tablet space, but it does make them. Kobo's pitch is directed at heavy readers, but the Arc 10HD is packing some serious gaming muscle behind its bookish exterior. For a limited time, you can have this device for $299.99, which is $100 cheaper than usual.

The Kobo Arc 10HD has a Tegra 4 ARM chip, 2GB of RAM, a 10-inch 2560x1600 LCD, and 16GB of storage.

There's some interesting stuff going on down under, and it doesn't have anything to do with poisonous animals (for once). Google has added a new section to the Play Store there – Made in Australia. It contains all the best in apps and games from the land of oz.

HTC might have been cool with a handful of M8 leaks to stir up interest, but this is probably not what the Taiwanese company had in mind. For a second time, the new HTC One has taken center stage in a video hands-on. This time it's 14 minutes long and entirely in German. We do not speak German.

This video really digs into the software experience and shows off that dual-camera.

Okay, so that camera voice command Google pointed out the other day wasn't terribly useful, but the new music command is pretty cool. Just pull up voice search in whatever way you prefer, and tell your device to "play some music." That's it – the tunes will flow.
