Modern Combat 4 Review: Playing By Big Boy Rules On The Small Screen

Gameloft has carved out a nice little niche for itself by taking popular console games, and tweaking the formula (and title) just enough to get away with it. The Modern Combat series has been presented as the mobile equivalent of Modern Warfare, and it's just reached its 4th incarnation with Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour. Does this formula of console-style play still work on Android?

Gameplay And Story

Modern Combat 4 is a first person shooter that makes heavy use of cinematic elements to tell what we can only hope is a good story.

[New App] FPS Meter Shows Just How Many Frames Per Second You're Getting In Any App (Root Only)

One of the things that makes Fraps so popular among PC gamers is its ability to capture frames per second info in the corner of just about any game, allowing users to monitor and benchmark performance.

Bringing similar functionality to your Android device, FPS Meter shows just how many frames per second any app is running at, and by extension allows you to capture video of that performance with the recording app of your choice.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Review – One More Zombie Shooter That Manages To Stay Interesting

There's no such thing as too many zombies, right? That seems to have been Glu Mobile's general idea when bringing Call of Duty: Black Ops – Zombies (or CODBOZ) to Android. The game, which itself is based on a spin-off of the original Call of Duty series, puts CoD players in familiar territory with a seemingly endless stream of zombies to eliminate in a game spanning not only multiple environments, but multiple gameplay modes as well.

Dead Trigger Is Now Free In The Play Store

A little while ago, Madfinger Games pushed a pretty major update to its new zombie-filled apocalyptic first-person shooter Dead Trigger. This update brought new weapons, arenas, levels, and zombies; it also brought an unexpected perk: a new price of free.

Now you can get in on all of the action without paying a dime. Of course, if you still want to show the developers some love (which I highly recommend), you can also do so through the in-app purchasing system.

I have personally been waiting for Dead Trigger to land in the Play Store since it was first announced at the beginning of June.

Now, the wait is over: Dead Trigger is now available in the Play Store!

Update: This is universal - it will work for both Tegra and non-Tegra devices.

[New Game] Critical Strike Portable Is Basically Counter Strike For Android, And It's Surprisingly Awesome

It seems like only yesterday when the best option for "gaming" on Android was throwing birds at pigs. We've come a long way since then and, thanks to modern hardware, the mobile device is quickly becoming the new console. Helping push that movement right along is a new game from Studio OnMars called Critical Strike Portable.

As you can probably guess from its name, Critical Strike Mobile is basically Counter Strike for your mobile device(s), albeit with a slight change: instead of using the Half-Life engine, Critical Strike is based off the Unity engine.

N.O.V.A. 3 Sets Up A New Outpost On Android, $7 To Play Not-Halo On Your Phone

Gameloft, creator of great Android games you feel like you've seen before, is at it again with N.O.V.A. 3, the third (obviously) in the sci-fi FPS shooter series that follows Master Chief Kal Wardin as he fights off the Covenant Volterite armada. The game's description touts an epic storyline and, frankly, we'd expect nothing less from Bungee Gameloft.

In all seriousness, despite the game's similarities to other major properties, Gameloft is well-known for making solid, enjoyable, if familiar, games.

Painkiller: Purgatory Comes To Android, Lets You Relive The Early 2000s, FPS Style

Apparently, it's all the rage for developers to bring classic games to modern platforms. Games that used to require full PC setups or (then) powerful consoles now run perfectly on mobile devices, so resurrecting this "old tech" for a new generation seems like the perfect idea.

The developers behind the port of Duke Nukem 3D have brought another classic FPS (first person shooter) to Android: Painkiller: Purgatory. For the uninitiated, Painkiller is a throwback game from the early 2000s where you play the part of a young man trapped in Purgatory, trying to find his way to Heaven so he can be with his wife.

[Updated: Gameplay Videos] First Person Nostalgia: Test Version Of Counter-Strike Portable Comes To Android - Campers Not Invited

If you were part of the PC gaming scene in the late 1990's and early 2000's, you almost certainly played Counter-Strike at some point. It was the online first-person shooter (of course, Doom III was around as well), and was essentially a modified runtime of Valve's popular sci-fi FPS Half-Life. Later iterations of the game like Condition Zero and Counter-Strike: Source lacked the magic which made the first game so addictive, and so the series has essentially been undergoing a slow death over the last few years.
