[New Game] Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Lands On Android With A New Level, Playable Knuckles, Online Multiplayer, And More

December 25th, 1993. A fresh-faced and (mostly) innocent little boy wakes up and rushes through his breakfast to make sure he beats his little sister to the Christmas tree. Underneath he finds four gifts: a Sega Genesis game console, RBI Baseball, Disney's Aladdin, and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. Twenty years later, that boy, no longer little and considerably less innocent, can relive countless wasted hours on a 5-inch phone screen. Sonic 2 is now in the Play Store.

Plants Vs. Zombies 2 Gets A Massive Update With Turbo Mode, A New World, Gigantic Zombies, And No More Stars Or Gates

Plants vs. Zombies 2 came out a few weeks ago with a lot of new gameplay mechanics and some in-app purchases.

[New Game] Angry Birds Go Rolls Into Google Play In Search Of Downhill Fun

Rovio's newest game is about what the Finnish developer knows best – birds. Though, they seem decidedly less angry this time in their little downhill race carts. Like it or not, this game is going to be huge.

Angry Birds Go is Rovio's first major free-to-play game on Android, so expect to be hit up for cash on occasion (maybe a lot of it). This is a casual racing game built around a variety of quirky downhill tracks.

Badland Review: More Than A Pretty Face

Badland is a game about adaptation – the rotund birds you control in this title are simple things that fly up and to the right at your direction, but they're always changing. Toss in a few power ups, and things get wild really fast. The game can change in an instant and you have to be ready for it. Just survive – that's all you need to do, but the assortment of unexpected dangers and physics puzzles make this game something to take a closer look at.

[New Game] Dokuro Is A Platformer About An Animated Skeleton, A Princess, And Charcoal

The PlayStation Network has become a surprisingly rich source of ports for the Google Play Store.
