[Game Roundup] Here Are Our Six Picks For Best New Game From June 2012

After taking a closer look at our top five favorite apps from June, it only seemed right to follow up with another roundup of our top favorites in the game category. Unable to settle on just five games for this roundup, we decided to include six of June's best entries into the Play Store. Of course, there were a ton of worthy competitors for the top six spots, so choosing wasn't easy, but here are our favorites:

Project 83113

First up is Project 83113, a cute sidescrolling platformer from NCsoft. The game challenges players to "bring an end to the reign of the machine" by jumping, bouncing, and shooting through four unique worlds.

Skahal Studios' Ships N' Battles Brings Battleship To Android In HD, Multiplayer Fashion

An Android port of the classic board game Battleship isn't, by any means, a new or novel idea - apps like Naval Clash have been offering this functionality for ages now - but once you've laid your eyes on Ships N' Battles (the latest such port), you'll never go back to the previous efforts.

Ships N' Battles, Skahal Studios' first foray into the Play Store, merges the classic board game with fancy new HD graphics. And to great effect - if the screenshots above weren't sufficient evidence of that, have a gander at this video demo:

The budding dev hasn't sacrificed function in the name of form, however; an awesome multiplayer mode is included, complete with support for both online ('Global Server') and WiFi ('local area network') gaming.

9th Circuit Court Denies Stay Of Galaxy Tab 10.1 Ban, Temporarily Lifts Galaxy Nexus Ban Awaiting Apple Response

Samsung swiftly appealed the preliminary injunctions slapped on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Nexus issued by a California district court, and the presiding circuit court has issued its response.

First, the court declined to even consider lifting the sales ban (preliminary injunction) on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 - meaning that ban will stay in effect unless Samsung wins out at trial. Second, it decided that Samsung had made a plausible case for denying the preliminary injunction against the Galaxy Nexus, and has lifted that ban temporarily, awaiting Apple's response, which is due by next week. This doesn't mean much for the moment, and might not mean much overall - Samsung probably stopped making Tab 10.1s months ago, and the Galaxy Nexus will be receiving an OTA update soon enough to avoid Apple's patent infringement allegations.

Word Lens Finally Comes To Android, And It Works Surprisingly Well As Long As You Aren't Epileptic [Hands-On]

I first saw Word Lens for iOS on TechCrunch back in 2010 and instantly fell in love with the concept - just point the camera at foreign words, and all of them get translated in front of your very eyes, live. Amazing, isn't it? If you haven't seen this promo video yet, watch it first:

Every month since, I searched the Play Store for Word Lens, hoping its developers brought it to our favorite OS, but found nothing. Eventually, during my trip to Spain, I started using CamDictionary, which did a decent job but was too cumbersome to use and lacked many words in the dictionary.

[New App] Ringtonium Is An Absolutely Gorgeous Ringtone Editing App

I have a confession to make: I don't use ringtones. Most of the time, my phone is on vibrate, and when it's not, I insist that my ringtones actually ring. However, if I were to use custom ringtones, Ringtonium is the app I'd use to set them up. This app is beautiful. In a way that few apps are. The interface is brilliantly easy to use and accessible to even the most tech illiterate users.

Very similarly to turntable, this app might remind some folks of iOS just a bit, although this is more due to a design philosophy than any particular UI element.
