[New Game] Jolt Brings Fast-Paced Futuristic Dodgeball To Two Players On One Device

In the future, sports won't look the way they do now. They will be faster, more complex, and completely saturated with bright neon lights. No game will be immune, no matter how small or seemingly innocent, including dodgeball. Jolt offers a taste of what a futuristic version of this game will look like, and it gives two players the chance to experience it on one device.

[New Game] Worms 3 Wiggles Into The Play Store With Ballistic Gameplay Intact For $5

According to Wikipedia, there were 19 entries in the perennial Worms franchise before the latest game was published on iOS last year, not counting re-releases, ports, spin-offs, and expansion packs. So why is this one simply titled Worms 3, when in fact we've already had Worms 2, Worms 4: Mayhem, Worms 2: Armageddon (published after Worms 4, by the way), and Worms: Ultimate Mayhem? Who knows. Apparently fans of this series aren't bothered by inconsistent numbering schemes.

[New Game] Watch Dogs Pits Console And Mobile Gamers Against Each Other With New Companion App

Listen, EA, you're one of the biggest video game publishers in the world. It's not my place to tell you what to do, and far be it from me to say that you have to support Android's standard online and social gaming featureset in your games. But it would probably be a good idea. Case in point: the over-the-top basketball game NBA Jam. The title just got updated with Google Play Games support.

[New Game] Pathogen Is The Latest Abstract Strategy Game With Very Few Colors That Will Consume All Of Your Free Time

Pathogen is a turn-based strategy game, but it doesn't involve armor-clad warriors waging war against hordes of miscellaneous fiends. Instead, it tasks shapes of one color with overcoming similar shapes of another hue. It's the kind of simplistic, easy-to-grasp, abstract experience that tends to be very successful on mobile platforms. Now, after having made itself cozy in a competing app store a couple months ago, Pathogen has found its way onto Google Play.
