The latest Humble Bundle is in town, so you know what that means. It's time to open up your wallet just wide enough to pay however much you want for up to six great multi-platform games. The entire lot is available for Android, with two making their Android debut - Gemini Rue and AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome. Together these two games alone would cost you $9, and now they can both be yours for a mere fraction of the price.
Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got a truly terrifying platformer, a strategy game from 2K, and a new Greedy Spiders title.
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.

Today, in a post on the Android Developers Blog, Google announced two new tools that might be of interest to quite a few of the game developers out there. Among the releases is a new open-source 2D physics library called LiquidFun and a Unity plugin for adding Google Play Games support. These releases coincide with the news of additional game categories coming to the Play Store in February, which we covered earlier today.
