You probably know Hexage. This developer has been a part of the Android gaming landscape since the beginning with titles like Radiant, EVAC, and Robotek. Hexage's newest title is the 2D action RPG Reaper, and it looks amazing.
This game takes the essence of an RPG and distills it to work effortlessly on a mobile device. There aren't a plethora of buttons all over the screen, just left and right controls and a gesture area for attacks and jumps.
Ouya announced in July that it would match funds for Ouya titles that were funded through Kickstarter. That's a pretty good deal, so a number of game developers took a swing at it. There were reports as the first two campaigns neared their goals that something was amiss. There were a number of very large donations, and some felt that screamed "scam." One project has been suspended, and the details are starting to come out.
It's almost the weekend, and what does that mean? Friends? Outdoor activities? Goodness, no. It means you've got time to sit in a dark room – alone – and enjoy some new apps and games. Well, you can probably do a mix of things, but it's none of our business. However you want to roll. Either way, here are some sales.
As promised, tactical shooter Breach and Clear has arrived on Android. This game gives you command of a team of elite commandos, which you use to execute the perfect assault and take out the bad guys. This is definitely not another mindless shooter.
The Android release of Breach and Clear brings some new content that wasn't in the original iOS release. What's new? A lot of stuff – locations, weapons, game modes, and missions so far.
It's been a busy few days around here, but we haven't forgotten to look after your wallet. It's time to save some cash, and all you have to do is read on and click some stuff. Who else treats you so good?
Finally, Android is not a second-class citizen. LEGO has released three new apps (okay, one of them is a game) for the Mindstorms EV3 robotics set in Google Play, just as promised back at CES. It's fitting, too. We're all just a bunch of robots around here.
The Mindstorms 3D Builder app is a handy 3D instruction booklet that tells you how to build the stock robots with the EV3 kit.
Cease your Labor Day relaxation (in the US) and pay attention. There are apps and games which you can currently have for a fraction of the normal price. I'm told this is colloquially called a "sale." If you'd like to take advantage of these "sale" things, read on.
