Bomberman vs Zombies by Contlex Labs, which spent "24 weeks in the list of top 10 BlackBerry games," has come to Android, bringing endless zombies and explosions to the palm of your hand.

BvZ should look extremely familiar to fans of Bomberman, or those who remember the rendition we saw a few months ago for Android, but Contlex's creation offers clean, pleasing graphics which can be enjoyed on smartphones and tablets alike, and a somewhat unique gameplay dynamic.

The extremely popular photo-sharing app Instagram, just days after hitting the Play Store, has received another update, this time bringing some pretty awesome changes.

Perhaps the most significant change the app's update to version 1.0.3 brings is compatibility for tablets and Wi-Fi handsets, meaning users can now share photos from all their Android devices with ease.

Besides the added compatibility, Instagram's latest update allows users to install the app to their SD card, thereby freeing up a little internal storage.

In a move that is going to surprise approximately no one who knows anything about selling smartphones, HTC has indicated to CNET that it no longer plans to bundle Beats headphones with its handsets.

The reasoning should be pretty obvious - people aren't going to buy a smartphone on the basis that it comes with a pair of decent headphones. Headphones are a separate market, and if you care about them at all, you're going to buy them separate of any other hardware.

Budget smartphones are a lot like those miniature cans of Coca-Cola you'll find on supermarket shelves - cheaper by the half-dozen than their higher-volume counterparts, but with the obvious catch that you're getting less sweet, delicious corn-juice for your dollar. It doesn't take more than 30 seconds to stop, think about this, and realize that even if you won't finish the big 12oz can during your lunch (or don't want to drink that much soda), you're still basically paying more for choosing to buy less.

At the Ballpark is a social check-in app specifically for baseball fans that hit the stands to see their favorite team on a regular basis. The app features interactive maps and directories for each ballpark, social media integration, team schedules, ticket info, and sales; access to food and drink ordering at select parks, as well as direction and parking information.

We've all played some sort of music rhythm game before - be it Guitar Hero, Rock Band, or Tap Tap Revenge. While only one of those was actually meant to be played on a touchscreen device, it still left something to be desired. Enter a new music rhythm game that not only looks fantastic, but actually makes sense to play: Cytus.

Cytus was originally for iOS devices and has now made its way to Android.

Four months ago, Rockstar games brought one of the most iconic video game titles of all time to Android devices: Grand Theft Auto III. With that, came car theft, trashy hookers, shady criminals, and enough violence to satisfy even the most brutal among us. Fast-forward to today, and Rockstar has announced the release date for yet another iconic title: Max Payne.

The folks over at Fusible have discovered that Samsung has filed a trademark with the US PTO for three new names: Galaxy Sire, Galaxy Perx, and Galaxy Lift. While we don't have any details yet, we do know that we're looking at phones and not tablets - the trademarks were filed under the "Mobile phones; Smartphones" category.

Given the names, I'd guess we're looking at carrier-branded versions of the same device.

Cinemark

Though movie apps like Flixster and Moviefone (which allow users to locate any theaters near them) clearly have their utility, sometimes it's nice to have an app specific to a certain theater brand. Precisely for this purpose, Cinemark Theaters, one of the biggest names in the "motion picture exhibition industry," has released an official Android app.

The application will grant users GPS directions to any domestic Cinemark theater, in addition to:

  • Securely purchasing movie tickets
  • Accessing "My Cinemark" favorite theaters
  • Searching for their preferred Cinemark theater locations
  • Viewing their gift card balances
  • Viewing their ticket purchase histories
  • Searching for movies Coming Soon
  • Searching for movies Now Playing
  • Viewing movie trailers
  • Rating, Synopsis, Cast etc.
