Three Trailers For Awesome Upcoming Android Games: Rayman Adventures, Crashlands, And Ronin

Rayman Adventures

Rayman Jungle Run and Rayman Fiesta Run are easily two of the best games of their type on Android, and we're getting at least one more.

[New Game] Blazing Souls Accelate Is A Colossal Japanese RPG That Will Fill Up Your Storage, Empty Your Wallet

Games on Android continue to get bigger and more elaborate.

Previously, the company released Spectral Souls, a 1GB RPG for $15 that promised hundreds of hours of gameplay (as any decent RPG would). Today, the similarly priced, and even larger 1.2GB sequel lands on the Play Store: Blazing Souls Accelate.

Up until this point, you've been able to scavenge around for materials, but if you wanted to do anything with them, you're stuck. The new crafting system, called MATTIS because things need names, will allow you to craft new materials, tools, and armor. Minecraft is getting significantly closer to the mobile version we've all been wanting this whole time.
