Maybe you weren't waiting up til 4am EST, eagerly anticipating the release of Angry Birds Space. That is what you have us for, after all. If you were, though, you might remember that only one version of the app made it to the Play Store that night: the free version. Later, though, Rovio released "Angry Birds Space Premium," which is the ad-free version of the app. Now, Rovio has released Angry Birds Space HD.
Ever since a hardware manufacturer went to a music festival to announce a video game about birds flying into space, the internet has been waiting for Angry Birds Space to launch. Well, the countdown is finally over, and Angry Birds Space is now stationed at Amazon's Appstore.
As per usual, the game is free if you like ads, or $0.99 on the Appstore for an ad-free experience. Amazon also has an HD version of the ad-free game for the Kindle Fire available on the Appstore.
Who doesn't like games? Or charity? Or setting your own prices? If you answered "me" to any of these questions, you may take the rest of the article off. The rest of you, get ready for the Humble Bundle For Android 2! The same rules apply to the second round as the first: pay what you want, designate how much should go to charity, get licenses for all available platforms.
The list of games are as follows:
- Swords & Soldiers
- Zen Bound 2
All of these games are brand new to Android and come complete with licenses to play them on Windows, Mac, Linux, and even unlock the games on your Steam account (where available).
Jean-Sebastien Royer, a developer making his debut on Google's Play Store, recently released Kainy – an app that promises to allow users to stream games from their PC over a Wi-Fi, 3G, or 4G connection. The first problem that comes to mind with this concept is devising a cohesive and broadly applicable control scheme. Addressing that in perhaps the most logical (and ingenious) way possible, Kainy allows users to create customized control layouts for each game.
This is PART 2 of the app roundup (it was too big for one post). PART 1 is here.

If you've never heard of Mika Mobile, that's not a huge surprise - they're a small, but fairly successful mobile game developer that focuses primarily on iOS. Their number one title (in terms of recent sales) is Zombieville USA 2, which has over 68,000 ratings on the App Store, and the most recent version of the game has averaged 5 stars. So we're clear, that's no small feat.
Their first game, Zombieville USA, was released for Android last July.
