Android Police coverage: OrangePixel releases Meganoid 2017, offering more classic platforming action and frustration

Somewhat of a confusing release, Meganoid (2017) is different from the previous versions of Meganoid and Meganoid 2.

Spacetime Studios Says Development Of Arcane Battlegrounds, Battle Dragons, Dark Legends, Pocket Legends, And Star Legends Has Stopped

As a wise man once said, all good things must come to an end. (I'm fairly certain it was Captain Picard.) So it is with a handful of mobile RPGs and tower defense games from developer Spacetime Studios. In a post on the company's official forum, CEO Gary Gattis said that the games Arcane Battlegrounds, Battle Dragons, Dark Legends, Pocket Legends, and Star Legends will not be getting any future updates, including the standard weekly bonuses and seasonal events.

Arcane Legends, a more recent take on the free-to-play mobile MMO formula, is still receiving updates.

The games themselves will remain available, at least for the time being.

'Galaxy On Fire: Alliances' Brings The Beautiful Spacefaring Series Back To Android As A Strategy MMO

Quite a while has past since there's been any Android-related news for Galaxy on Fire fans. The developers of the series that showed many gamers just how beautiful space could be and let them explore it on their mobile devices surprised a few folks when they said that the next entry would deviate from their action-oriented roots and transition into a strategy-focused MMO. Excuse me, make that a free-to-play strategy-focused MMO.

The Galaxy on Fire: Alliances came to iOS earlier this year. Now after spending two years being tested in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, the game is available in the Play Store for worldwide distribution.

[Bonus Round] Runes Of War, Vacation Vexation, And DubSlider

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 an interesting online turn-based RPG, another pixelated adventure from Nostalgic, and a game that brings both the wub-wub and the unse-unse. Without further ado:

Runes Of War

Sometimes I wish Kairosoft would break their city builder/RPG titles out of the pixelated niche, and if they did, that game might look like Runes of War.

Ragnarok Valkyrie Uprising Brings Addictive Anime-Style MMO Fun To Android

To say that Koreans get into video games more than most of us would be an understatement. Sure, we may stay up til midnight to play a sweet new game, but these guys build friggin' stadiums to play them in. Starcraft isn't the only game that's taken off in  Korea, though. Ragnarok Online has been a huge MMORPG in the country that spread worldwide and is now landing on Android.

The mobile MMO features a touchscreen-oriented UI (as you'd expect), a solo mode or online play for users who want to play with a party. Interestingly, you can also login to the game via Facebook, which may be a change for most MMO players.

Dark Legends Is A Vampire-Themed MMORPG For Android That Never, Ever Sparkles

Spacetime Studios, creator of hit game Pocket Legends, has released a new MMO for those of you who want to role play on the go: Dark Legends. In this vampire-themed game, you play as a demon of the night on the run as the world of humans has suddenly figured out that vampires are real. Apparently, in this world, smashing trucks, killing wildlife, and large-scale battles with wolves will inevitably end up on YouTube. Yes, what I'm saying is this game is more believable than Twilight*.

While vampire purists may still dislike some elements of the story (these vampires have superhuman speed and strength for example, but then who doesn't these days?), there's plenty of bloody human-hunting to go around.

Linux Tycoon, "The Nerdiest MMO Ever Conceived," Headed To Android With Online Play

It appears that Linux Tycoon, "the world's premier 'Linux Distribution Building Simulation Game'," will be gaining online play soon, and (more importantly) is officially headed for Android (and iOS).

In a blog post earlier today, Lunduke announced both of these exciting developments, and explained just how the game's new online capabilities will work: the mind behind "the nerdiest MMO ever conceived" will be releasing Linux Tycoon Server, allowing players to run their own "world" for online play separate from the official server, and also allowing for customization of the play experience including gameplay settings and Package lists.

Players on all platforms will be able to join these "worlds," competing globally against other Linux Distros in real-time.

[Review] Camel Games' Little Empire Is Interestingly Addictive, But Could Still Use Some Work

Recently, I picked up Little Empire, and while it does have a few technical issues, I can't seem to put it down. In fact, I normally get bored of new games pretty quickly, but I've probably logged a solid 5 hours of gameplay within the last 2 days. Being a ruthless king is hard work, you know.

First Things First

Camel Games describes this game as the "World's first LBS (Location Based Services) mobile MMO." While I can't be entirely sure this is actually a world first, it definitely is worth mention. In Little Empire you'll take control over your own kingdom, or empire as the title would suggest, and conquer the rest of the Little world with an army you build from the ground up.
