In 'Sacred Guns', You're An Afro-Sporting Angel Defending Noah The Pirate's Ark From Teletubbies Because AWESOME

Artem gives me all the weird stuff. I love it, really. In the last week or so alone, I've covered Shaq fighting mutant zombies, Santa Claus as a rock star, sentient pudding, and a walk in the park. I thought I couldn't be happier. Then he brings me 'Sacred Guns'. This game stars Archangel Mark Leung (which appears to be the same name of one of the primary devs on this project), wielding his dual golden pistols and rainbow sword against an army of "God's unwanted creation." Apparently, when the Lord Almighty wanted to flood the Earth to cleanse it of sin, "sin" was code for "evil Teletubbies." Which makes perfect sense.

'Autumn Walk', Sequel To 'Winter Walk', Wants To Take You For—Can You Guess?—A Walk

I say, fancy a jaunt in the park, ol' chap? Whilst other games may be of a less than savory nature, sometimes all a proper bloke wishes is to go for a stroll with his dog on a windy afternoon. Autumn Walk affords you just such an occasion, providing an ace simulation of the experience, in case you can't be buggered to leave your flat.

The gameplay consists mainly of following a fancy fellow as he saunters about with his bulldog in a pixelated environment.

SEGA Releases Sonic Jump For Android, A Retro-Style Vertical Platformer

In its continuing effort to revitalize the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, SEGA has released yet another made-for-mobile title starring our favorite member of the family Erinaceidae. Sonic Jump is a vertical platformer, with retro 2D visuals. The goal? Jump. In a generally upwards direction. And, of course, collect rings.

If a Sonic game needs a whole lot more explaining than that, it's probably cause for skepticism (the Sonic Adventure series excluded, perhaps).

Honestly, Kind Of Dull: Broken Sword II - The Smoking Mirror Review

It's safe to say that while point-and-click adventure games have a very niche market, there's a select few mediums where they work well. Touch devices and PCs have always been prime candidates, as their interfaces lend themselves to a control scheme that isn't overly complicated: click to move, click to interact, click to do everything.

Especially with this year's The Walking Dead games garnering so much praise, the genre could be in for a little bit of a renaissance.

[Deal Alert] OfficeSuite Pro 6 HD, Normally $14.99, Is On Sale For Just $.99

Newsflash, Android users: the Google Drive/Docs app is terrible. It's just about competent enough to read the documents you've written elsewhere, but for editing and creating new Word, Excel, and PDF documents, you need something with a little more oomph. One of the best choices out there is OfficeSuite, and it's also one of the most expensive, at $15. But right now you can - and should - pick it up for a single dollar.

Activision's 30th-Anniversary PITFALL! Rework Hits The Play Store As An Endless Runner With A Little More To Offer

Bringing its already-popular (on iOS) reimagining of the Atari classic to Android, Activision released Pitfall! to the Play Store today. For those who haven't seen or played the newly conceptualized Pitfall, it shares very little with the original – you'll still be dodging snakes, swinging on ropes, and jump over impossible pitfalls, but this time you'll be playing an "endless-runner" a la Temple Run. Unlike Temple Run, however, Pitfall's protagonist (Pitfall Harry) uses a whip to defeat whatever wild foes happen to be in his way.
