USA Network's Mr. Robot is all the rage among tech fans, and not just because it's probably the most faithful depiction of real-world hackers ever to hit primetime. The drama surrounding a gigantic, omnipresent, all-knowing international tech company that has access to every part of the digital world has some disturbing parallels in real life. (Cough, cough.) If you can't wait for the next episode to land in your Android TV queue, there's a new game on the Play Store to check out... and it's made by TellTale, fan-favorite developers of story-focused adventure games.

The Tony Hawk series might be the King of skateboarding games, but that doesn't mean there can't be other viable contenders for the title. True Skate, currently available for $0.10 in many countries (but not in the US), is one such game, and by the looks of it does a damn good job.
True Skate is the official 'Street League Skateboarding' video game, which a bit of Googling tells me is an international competitive skateboarding series. For True Skate to have these credentials is a pretty big indicator of its quality (or at least potential quality) and should inspire confidence if you are a skateboarding fan. Read More
10 cents can go a long way these days on the Play Store. In recent times, you've been able to grab some cool games and apps for this sum — maybe a bit more or a bit less depending on your country — but the discounts have been heavily skewing toward select regions: UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia, Russia, and sometimes the US and Canada and a few other countries joined in on the fun.
This deal though seems to be better in every way. One, it appears to be worldwide: I've checked dozens of countries around the world and they're all showing the game as discounted. Read More
It's monday already and even though the week has barely started, the stress of work and life might already be taking a toll on you. If you're looking for a way to unwind, there's a sweet and beautiful zen puzzler waiting for you in the Play Store and at a super cheap price too. After all, I wouldn't dare stress you further by making you pay a lot of money.
Zenge, which is only a couple of months old, tells the story of a lonely journeyman Eon through different puzzles that you have to put together piece by piece and in the correct order. Read More
What if virtual reality was just reality, with a small asterisk? What if you could strap on your VR headset, regardless of the brand or technology behind it, and see the same thing that's in front of you... but mirrored? Or upside down? Or delayed by 2 seconds? Ha, what a novel idea!
VR Party Game does just that. It's a Cardboard app/game that transmits your smartphone's rear camera view onto the screen, but applies one of three special effects to confuse you. It can delay the view by 2 seconds, mirror it, or flip it upside down. The idea is to use it as a party game with friends, asking each other to complete a few tasks while wearing the Cardboard headset. Read More
Match-three games are inherently derivative at this point - there's only so much spin you can put on a genre so played-out that even your grandma is probably getting a bit bored swapping kitty cats for lollipops in a landscape best described as the pink-and-yellow paletted fever dream of a six-year-old. But if you're looking for yet another match-three indulgence that sits in at least one of the more desirable mid-outer circles of hell, you might enjoy the latest take on the genre from one of its earliest innovators, Pop Cap, in the form of Bejeweled Stars.
Bejeweled Stars is, essentially, insane. Read More
Toby: The Secret Mine is a relatively new indie game inspired by Limbo. The similarity is immediately apparent. Both are 2D platformers. Both embrace heavy use of silhouettes.
But as they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and we welcome more admirers making their way into the Play Store. Read More
Ten cents. What can you buy at the store with ten cents? Nothing. You can't even buy a Tootsie Roll Pop for that price, those suckers cost at least a quarter now! You might not be able to buy any physical goods for a dime these days, but today you can buy an awesome game with mechanized warfare for that price. The game I'm talking about is Epic War Tower Defense 2 by developer AMT games.
Epic War TD 2 has been out for a little over a year now, so it's likely this sale is a just a way for the developer to drum up interest for a new title by getting naïve tech bloggers to write about the steep discount in an... Read More
Trivia games are a dime a dozen on Android, but good and popular trivia games that you can play against lots of friends and multiple opponents are a lot harder to find. Trivia Crack has amassed over 100M downloads on Android for its free version and more than 100,000 for its ad-free version, so you're bound to find a lot of users to battle against.
The game revolves around 6 categories, with hundreds of thousands of questions, and you can either challenge an opponent or play for the crown, all with the option to chat with them while the game is going. It looks fun. Read More
To celebrate the release of Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox consoles, Square Enix is discounting its Lara Croft GO game by 60% on the Play Store. It's a flash sale though, so you might want to hurry and grab it if the game seemed appealing to you or if you liked its spiritual predecessor Hitman GO.
Lara Croft GO is a turn-based puzzle adventure, where you play your turn moving your character along predefined paths, then wait for your opponents to make their move. There isn't a lot of urgency in the game, so you can take your time exploring the 75 different levels and figuring out the best way to finish them, all while listening to a nice soundtrack and enjoying the smooth animations and low-poly-like designs.
