Fuck you, Vincent Nguyen

As the Android gaming landscape grows, there are more than enough role-playing games to keep the enthusiast happy, and lately we've been getting some pretty decent real-time strategy as well. But if you like to mix your genres Reese's style, Armor Games is happy to oblige with the redundantly-titled Warlords RTS: Strategy Game. It's a traditional RTS, like Warcraft, with added RPG elements. Like, uh, World of Warcraft.

If you're an old hat at strategy, you know how this goes: get through the fantasy-themed campaign by cunningly building camps, deploying units, and upgrading your army.

Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got a 2D WWI dogfight shooter, a pirate shuffleboard game (yes, really), and an excellent example of why you don't give guns to monkeys.

Top-down shooters, also known as "bullet hell" games, are fairly common on mobile platforms. But rarely have we seen one with the complexity and artistry of this one. AstroWings3: Icarus is the latest in a series that started on iOS, and the first to make the warp jump to Android. Don't let that dissuade you, though - it's well worth your attention if you're a fan of the genre. Customizable weapons and screen-filling attacks are par for the course, and the loose connection to Greco-Roman mythology gives the game a nice presentation.

Droid fail

It’s been both a good and bad news week for Droid owners.

The Good News

The coveted Android 2.1 update has finally officially arrived to the device.

Android 2.1 was first available only on the Nexus One, a move that Google took some flack for. They were instrumental in pushing the Droid, and shortly after its release late last year, Google announced their first Google branded Android device, with features that other Android owners wouldn’t see on their phones for quite some time.
