GTA: Liberty City Stories Comes To Android With More Mobile-Friendly Open World Gameplay

The Grand Theft Auto series is no stranger to Android, but most of these titles are ports with console gaming in mind. The newly release GTA: Liberty City Stories takes a different approach, though. Originally released for the PSP a decade ago, you can pick up the Android version now for a mere $3.99.

Stylish Snowboarding Endless Runner Alto's Adventure Slides Into The Play Store

Android isn't hurting for endless runners, but at this point, most of them don't bring anything new to the table. That can't be said of Alto's Adventure, a new iOS port from prolific publisher Noodlecake and developer Snowman. What it lacks in revolutionary design it makes up for in pure, dripping style: everything from the pastel coloring to the shifting weather to the smooth 2D animations oozes with careful design. If you're tired of a never-ending parade of "retro" 8-bit games on mobile, Alto's Adventure might just be the cure.

The gameplay itself isn't all that interesting. Your player character snowboards down a gently-sloping mountain, chasing llamas, grabbing coins, jumping over rocks, and grinding on improbably load-bearing bunting.

Pujie Black Gets A Material Makeover, Shortcut Actions, Central Color Palette, And Plenty Of Nice Improvements

Out of all the watch maker applications on Android, Pujie Black is my favorite. I find the interface easier than WatchMaker, plus it's accessible on Android instead of requiring a web browser like Facer. I also love that I paid once for the app and I can get all of the community's creations for free and edit them to fit my personal needs. There's a learning curve to figuring out what everything does inside the app, but once you've got the hang of it, there are hundreds of things you can change to specifically tailor it to your preference. I personally like seeing my steps, the date, and PST timing (Artem's timezone) as the 3 Pujie indicators, and I love having a tap action to play/pause Pocket Casts specifically.
