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 an online battler with the soul of a 2D side-scroller, a stylish silhouetted space shooter, and a rather typical (if flashy) 3D endless runner.

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 flashy take on a classic board game, a certain puzzle game turned on its head, and an endless runner that's truly free.

This game asks a simple, yet gory question: how long can a headless chicken survive? The answer is up to you as you guide said headless bird through a crazy world of spinning saw blades and dangling meat hooks. Yeah, PETA will probably be condemning this any moment now.

Tapping on the screen makes the chicken flap its wings and fly upward. The more you tap, the higher it flies. This is how you'll avoid most of the obstacles in the game, but the speed component is essential as well.

We all have a favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Back when I still watched the show (you know, that one), I was a fan of Michelangelo, but as I grew into the book-loving, prose-writing young lad that I am today, I found that Donatello would have been a more appropriate match. I went through four years of college with hardly a sip of alcohol, and we all know Michelangelo would have been wasted before orientation was even over, found lying in the middle of campus without his shell.

You know that moment you have when you're playing an endless runner and you're ten seconds from beating your record, then you smash into an easily-avoided obstacle by the width of about two pixels? The colorful Time Surfer has found a way around that: you can rewind time to cover up your mistakes. The Prince of Persia's ears must be turning red right about now.

Time Surfer got its start on the Humble Mobile Bundle, but now it's available from the Play Store for a reasonable $.99.

Plasma-Thumb

Lets temper those expectations right from the beginning. Don't Run With a Plasma Sword has nothing to do with Halo, and you would be hard-pressed to find similarities between this mobile title and that blockbuster series. The young, Saturday-morning-cartoon-aged protagonist of Don't Run With a Plasma Sword isn't even wielding what I'd consider a plasma sword - it's more of a lightsaber.* But you know what? That's just as awesome. So pick up your Android device and get ready for another endless runner.

The first game that I ever played from Adult Swim was called "Five Minutes To Kill (Yourself)." It perfectly encapsulated the nihilistic and sarcastic tone of Adult Swim as a programming block, and it was a pretty hilarious game to boot. Now the boys in black have returned to their roots with Giant Boulder of Death. It's about a giant boulder that kills people, among other things.

GBoD is what Katamari Damacy would be if it was about ten times faster and replaced stickiness with destruction.

SheepHappens-Thumb

Have you ever tried to count sheep in order to fall asleep? It doesn't work. Why? It's not just because sheep are far too noisy to use as sleeping aids, it's because there's something oddly unsettling about them. What do they have hiding under their fur - wings perhaps? The sheepocalypse is upon us, and yes, those are sheep falling from the skies. It's time to run endlessly to put an end to this madness.

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 an interesting take on both marble games and endless runners, a less interesting endless runner with football team logos on it, an old-school beat-em-up with multiplayer co-op, and a Bejeweled clone starring cavemen.

Runner-Thumb

Totem Runner sounds like just another endless runner, possibly set place on a tropical island and starring an offensively stereotypical tribesmen of some kind. While your first hunch wouldn't be too far off the mark, this game dishes out a particular twist that just may come as a surprise. The provided experience is what you get if you take all of the Animorphs (too old?) and combine them all into one character, then turn that guy into a fierce warrior that looks strong enough to make me wonder why he needs to turn into an animal in the first place.
