Not every game needs to have dozens of quests, tiered objectives, and an hour of cut scenes before you get to the actual game. Gathering Sky is a simple adventure game with great music and a casual gameplay style. One thing it doesn't have is in-app purchases.

The current Humble Bundle is halfway through its run, and that means it's time for more games to be added. Although, this time it's just one game, Chainsaw Warrior. Don't be bummed, though. There were already nine games in the bundle before.
Ah, the 90s, when computers were only good for Word Perfect, Minesweeper, and whatever "edutainment" software the school had budgeted for this year. One of the standouts among some pretty decent educational games was Logical Journey of the Zoombinis, a series of puzzles centering around the titular tiny Smurf-like critters. If you have fond memories of that game, or later entries in the series, mosey on over to the Play Store. A new and updated version is now available for download.
Remember that one bit in Metal Gear Solid where the boss starts to mess with you, the player, and for a few minutes you wonder if A) the game is broken or B) you've actually gone insane trying to follow a Hideo Kojima plotline? GLTCH is that experience, boiled down to its essentials and turned into a mobile game.

How about some new apps and games at reasonable prices? Just click through to see them all. Don't worry, everything is going to be alright.
It's time for yet another Humble Mobile Bundle, so get your wallet out. No, really. Get your wallet out. You're going to want to buy this one. The Humble Games Workshop Mobile Bundle has nine games in the initial batch with more coming next week. If you like Warhammer, this is your lucky day. There are a ton of Warhammer titles in this one.
The basic gameplay of Worms hasn't changed since its debut in the 90s. Well, except for that brief flirtation with 3D in the early 2000s, but let's pretend that didn't happen. There's a new Worms title coming soon, and it's crafted especially for mobile devices with quick gameplay and a big single-player campaign.
