DuckTales: Remastered Is Currently Just 99 Cents In The Play Store, A 90% Discount Even Scrooge McDuck Would Jump On

When a port of the console game DuckTales: Remastered came to the Play Store earlier this year, it brought with it a pricetag that would make Scrooge McDuck scoff. That's not to say $10 was an unreasonable amount to pay for a game that cost at least as much on consoles, but like many other gamers, Scrooge tosses such logic out the window when buying stuff on his tablet. Besides, he likes to enjoy his gold in other ways.

If you've found the price of DuckTales: Remastered similarly off-putting, now is a good time to go over to its Play Store page.

New Game REDDEN Lets You Play As A Magic Bullet In Stylish Silhouette

Remember that awesome credits sequence from Lord of War? Imagine that as an artsy 2D silhouette game, and you might get something close to Redden. This touch-based shooting title has mechanics that are incredibly simple, but the stylish presentation and unique take on the story make it worth a look if you want something different. Redden is $2.44 in the Play Store and has no advertising or in-app purchases, at least at launch.

Redden begins in a derelict junk shop, where an animate iPhone talks smack to some of the older inhabitants, Brave Little Toaster-style. The story progresses as various weapons - an arrow, a kunai throwing knife, and a bullet - tell tales from their own perspectives.

Pre-Order 'This War Of Mine' For Android And Get PC Version Instantly, Plus 15% Goes To Charity

Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Sometimes good things happen to bad people. Sometimes things just happen. This unpredictability and grim reality forms the premise behind This War of Mine, a PC game from developer 11 Bit Studios that is on its way to Android.

How To Sink Battleships In Luftrausers (And Other Helpful Tips) On SHIELD Android TV [Sponsored Post]

By Henry Gilbert

Luftrausers is one of the most intense games to launch with the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV, and it doesn't let up from the first moment. You launch your small aircraft into those dangerous skies and start your all-out attack within moments, no tutorial required. And while it all looks great on your HDTV, maybe you could use just a little guidance with some of the more opaque aspects of the unexpectedly dense gem. Here are a few good rules of thumb for new pilots:

Turn down the throttle occasionally - Yes, obviously you want to keep your ship above water to avoid certain death, but that doesn't mean it's always full speed ahead.

When A Bad Guy Comes Along, You Must Whip It In Pixelated Casual Game FireWhip

I dare you to try and get through this story without getting Devo lyrics stuck in your head. Ready? Here we go: FireWhip is a casual game from developer Trichotomy that's unlike just about anything on the Play Store, despite its simplicity. You play a tiny pixelated blob which, for reasons that aren't adequately explained, has a whip made of fire. The objective is to kill as many bad guys (also represented by pixelated blobs) as possible, in a sort of 360-degree version of a top-down shooter.

The unique part of FireWhip is the control scheme. To activate your whip you simply swipe in a circle, the faster the spin, the longer and more powerful the whip.

Telltale Games Announces The Walking Dead: Michonne, Its Next Adventure Game Mini-Series Coming This Fall

Unveiled this morning at the E3 gaming convention in Los Angeles, The Walking Dead: Michonne will soon be the latest mini-series from Telltale Games.

Just in case the name doesn't give it away, this set of titles will center around Michonne, a character from the The Walking Dead comic book. The timeline stems from issues #126 through #139.

Anyone familiar with Telltale will know how the tale is told. These licensed adventure games tend to get broken up into series and episodes. Game of Thrones, for example, is four releases into a six-episode arc. Telltale plans to trace the plot of The Walking Dead: Michonne over the course of three episodes.

A Full-Fledged Harvest Moon Game Is Coming To Android This Winter, And It's Not An Old Port

Japanese developer and publisher Natsume has announced that it's bringing the Harvest Moon franchise to Android for the first time. And this isn't a port of one of the many previous entries in the series. Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories will be a full-blown sequel.

Android isn't the only platform getting its first crack at a proper Harvest Moon release. The farming sim is also coming to the Wii U, PC, and iOS. Only that last one has seen a Harvest Moon game before, but Frantic Farming was a puzzle game, not the farming sim fans have grown accustomed to.

Seeds of Memories gets its name from unlockable seeds players receive as rewards for completing tasks.

True Survivors Crotch-Punch Nazis In the Official Kung Fury: Street Rage Mobile Game

If you were distracted by tons of Google I/O coverage or our NVIDIA SHIELD review yesterday, there's a slim chance that you missed the even bigger news: Kung Fury is now on YouTube. Stop reading this and go watch it now. Then come back here and read about the official mobile game for the indie movie, Kung Fury: Street Rage.

The mobile game recreates Kung Fury's extended hand-to-hand fight scene, in which the titular lone wolf cop/martial arts master/time traveler single-handedly attacks Hitler's Nazi army. Unfortunately it's not quite as complex as the original Streets of Rage beat-em-up: you only get two on-screen buttons, left and right.
