One of the most popular games on Android is Minecraft Pocket Edition, which is constantly adding new features to bring the experience closer to what you'd get on the desktop. You can already make plenty of materials and play with friends, but the newest update adds just a little more depth.
Superheroes are good at fighting evil directly and getting the girl, but have you ever thought about the valuable and experienced support staff behind the hero? Of course you haven't, because a good middle manager is invisible – like a ghost loaded down with busy work. In Double Fine's Middle Manager of Justice, you can build and manage a team of superheroes to save the world in a roundabout way.
The game invites you to hire heroes and keep them busy around the office to increase their skills.
The original Sphero was an interesting idea, but it was a bit delicate and underpowered. Sphero 2.0 might be worth some consideration, though. Orbotix has made the new Sphero twice as fast (about 7 ft per second) and packed in a bunch of LEDs to make it three times brighter than Sphero 1.0. The company is also dropping an updated driving app to go with the new ball.
To show off the increased speed and acceleration, Orbotix is including two ramps in the box so you can catch some air with Sphero 2.0.
It took us a little longer than usual this time, but we're finally back with a short selection of last month's best new apps. It wasn't easy to narrow them down, but those readers who don't have time, spare cash, or patience enough for our longer semi-weekly roundups can't go wrong with the five apps we've chosen. If, by some chance, none of the apps below suit your fancy, we've got plenty of runners up too.
We've been waiting for Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded, the fancy remastered mobile version of the classic adventure game, for quite a while. And just one day after the game went live in the Play Store last month, it was pulled for technical issues and sent back to the drawing board to iron out some last-minute kinks. But you can't keep a good sleaze down: your favorite lovable letch is back, ready for returning gamers and new players.
This is the app roundup. The game roundup from last week can be found here.
