It simply wouldn't be a new month without a new roundup of the top apps and games from the previous month. We've already gone over last month's very best apps - so what about games? There were plenty of new games to choose from last month, but a few really stood apart. We've compiled a short list once again of the very best games sure to enhance any Android user's catalog.
It's been a busy 24 hours since Android 4.4 KitKat and the Nexus 5 were announced. You probably stayed up all night reading the news and furiously refreshing the UPS tracking page to see if your phone shipped yet. Well, relax. You have to come down from that KitKat high sometime, and what better way than with some nice, inexpensive apps and games?
It's Halloween, which means the deal spirits are at their most powerful. If you're very quiet, we might be able to call out to them through the ghostly aether and conjure up some deals. And indeed, here they are – some spooky sales just for you.
The sales continue to roll in as All Hallows' Eve approaches, and you don't even have to dress up and go door-to-door to get these treats. You can still dress up if you want, though. It's fine – we're not here to judge.
It's just a few days until Halloween, and that means it's time for some spoooooky sales. Well, just regular sales, I guess. But Halloween is the excuse developers are using to put things on sale. That means a lot of deals. Get ready to spend some money.
The rise of free-to-play games littered with in-app purchases is a contentious one to say the least. More traditional gamers tend to prefer the old model, with a paid and complete game and perhaps a free demo, but the freemium model has proven too lucrative for most game publishers to ignore. Android user "Mattayx" left the following review on the international version of FIFA 14:
Well done, Matt. EA has been particularly heavy-handed with its freemium games lately, with big titles like Real Racing 3, Madden 25, and FIFA 14 laying it on thick.
The Humble Bundle is one of the best deals in gaming, but the Humble folks also do smaller weekly sales. The newest weekly sale bundle includes five total games, three of which come with Android versions.
The sale is brought to you by Cipher Prime, which is the developer of all five titles. The three Android titles are fairly popular, but aren't the kind of thing everyone knows about. Fractal and Splice are both abstract puzzle games with very polished visuals.
You know what's cool? Apps are cool. You know what else? Saving money. What if... what if those two ideas could be combined?! It would surely improve your happiness and wellbeing dramatically. You should probably check out these sales immediately for your own good.
