Update: The game had a showstopper bug, so it's been pulled until tomorrow when a new version will be uploaded.
Update 2: The game should be live again, sans loading bug.
What are you supposed to do when a race of evil machines has taken over your glowing neon space station? Shoot things? Yeah, that sounds about right. Neon Shadow from Crescent Moon Games lets you do just that as the evil Mechanoids seek to eradicate humanity.
The weekend has finally come, and with it... the sales. You should take advantage of them the very instant you see this post. Things could be expiring while you're just sitting there reading this witty banter. Umm... ... okay, I've got nothing. Just go buy stuff.
It has traditionally been hard to find properly optimized tablet apps on Android. At first it was simply because there weren't any, but increasingly the problem is visibility. Google is aiming to change that with some new tablet-specific tweaks to the on-device Play Store app. Not only will tablet users see more tablet apps, but they'll be able to tell which apps are designed for larger screens.
The first of two changes affects the top lists in the Play Store app.
Rockstar Games has gifted the Play Store with "the official manual app for Grand Theft Auto V." The whopping 181MB app (which debuts at version 0.0.1) has over a hundred pages of literature on the expansive new entry in the infamous franchise, containing information on the game's dynamics, local neighborhoods, activities, game features, and an interactive map to explore when taking a break from the real game (or while exploring in-game if you're a multitasker).
You were probably just sitting there bored, waiting for something to brighten up your day. Well, this is it – deals, bargains, promotions! We've got some of those, and all you have to do is read on. Apps? We're fresh out of apps today, but games are plentiful.
This game asks a simple, yet gory question: how long can a headless chicken survive? The answer is up to you as you guide said headless bird through a crazy world of spinning saw blades and dangling meat hooks. Yeah, PETA will probably be condemning this any moment now.
Tapping on the screen makes the chicken flap its wings and fly upward. The more you tap, the higher it flies. This is how you'll avoid most of the obstacles in the game, but the speed component is essential as well.
Where's My Water? was a surprise hit when it came out on mobile devices a few years ago, and now there is a sequel with a lot of the same great gameplay mechanics and a ton more content. Where's My Water 2 was released on iOS a few weeks ago, but it has finally washed up in Google Play. It's still a fun physics puzzler, but Disney is going with a free-to-play model and in-app purchases.
Fans of dystopian stories in the vein of 1984 and Fahrenheit 451 will want to take note of a new arrival in Google Play. Blackbar is a word puzzle that has you decipher letters sent to you by a friend after they've been filtered through the insidious Department of Communication. Things start to go wrong for your friend, but you'll only be able to figure out what's happening if you fill in the blanks and make it to the next page.
Is your relationship with family and friends a little too good? PinWars can take care of that by taking a nice game of pinball and turning it into a super-competitive button-mashing frenzy. It does look neat, though.
The headlining game mode in PinWar is the two-player setup where each person grabs onto one end of the device – probably a tablet – and taps away to control their flippers. It's kind of like Air Hockey, but with pinball rules.
