Kerosene Games hasn't yet published many games for Android, but their titles definitely grab our attention. Their last title, Bladeslinger, was an action-RPG with highly-attractive visuals that were only somewhat held back by repetitive gameplay and in-app purchases. Their next title, Bounty Arms, is available now, and it looks perhaps even more impressive. This 3D side-scroller puts you in control of three characters across 10 beautiful levels that may just have you do a double-take. Read More
Fans of the preeminent dating/hookup simulator, Leisure Suit Larry have had the opportunity to be disappointed twice in the last few months. Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded was supposed to arrive in the Play Store wrapped in cheesy suede back in May. Then it was pushed to late June, but missed that deadline too. Now at long last the hunt is on – Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded has been released on Android. Read More
There are three parts to any good Pac-Man game: a maze, some ghosts, and a little yellow dude eating dots and going "wakka wakka." That's it. Despite this seemingly simple formula, Namco has tried to make Pac-Man a mascot for the ages a la Mario, putting him in everything from platformers to kart racers to freaking Tekken. The latest indignity is Pac-Man Dash, in which the little yellow guy jumps on the endless runner bandwagon. Read More
The Google Play Store got its big overhaul this week, and it looks pretty nice. The lost features are a bit of a problem, but maybe a bunch of app sales will cheer you up. There are a ton of them today, including some stuff from Amazon.
Joss Whedon fans, you might want to go grab some duct tape. Got it? Now roll about eight feet of it around your head, just in case it explodes with shiny rainbows at this next bit of news: there's an official Firefly game coming to Android. Not a fan project. Not some promotional minigame. A real title based on the cult classic sci-fi TV show and movie. That sound you're hearing now is a million Browncoats shouting with unrestrained glee. Read More

If you're wondering if the new Play Store is acting a little weird for everyone or just you – it's everyone. A large number of developer pages are missing apps all their apps. They're just empty wastelands of calming gray.
Not all pages are affected, but some big developers are included in the problems. Rovio Stars, Netflix, Dropbox, the NBA, Sony Online, Wacom, Tesla Motors, and YouTube are among those with blank developer pages. Read More
Say what you will about Rovio – those folks know what pays the bills. The developer has announced its new game, and it's another Angry Birds title. This time we're turning to the Star Wars universe with Angry Birds Star Wars II. The new game will incorporate characters and locations from the prequel films. Yes, those ones.
This looks like an evolution of the previous Angry Birds Star Wars game, which was actually kind of enjoyable. Read More
