There have been a lot of Pac-Man games over the years, but there are only so many ways you can tweak the "run around a maze and eat things" genre. Hipster Whale (the developer of Crossy Road) has found a new one, though. After partnering with Namco, Hipster Whale came up with Pac-Man 256, a homage to the infamous level 256 glitch in the original game. A new gameplay video is now out, and it looks awesome.
Fans of Warhammer 40,000 have put up with a lot over the years. The IP has been the basis for a great many mobile games, only some of which have been good. The newly announced Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade looks like it has some potential, just judging from the flashy gameplay trailer. Many questions remain unanswered, though.
The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future. Congratulations!

Today a number of great games have all become available for NVIDIA SHIELD all around the same time. To make sure that you have something to play these titles on, we're giving away three bundles of hardware.
Amazon is pulling out all the stops to entice you to use its Appstore for Android. True, Google Play is more convenient, but rarely does Google just give away $90 in premium apps and games as Amazon is doing right now. It's a good selection too with titles like Goat Simulator and Elements of Photography.
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.
The mechanics of the title are laughably simple: you travel around a TRON-inspired 2D grid grabbing points like a postmodern Pac-Man. Grab the blue stuff, avoid the red stuff - pretty basic. Powerups will let you clear the field, increase your speed, or go invincible.
The once proud Tomb Raider franchise has been somewhat exploited in recent years with releases like Lara Croft Relic Run. There's the classic Tomb Raider game on Android now, but in the near future you might have another option for not-terrible Tomb Raider gaming with Lara Croft GO.
