Gamers on iOS have been able to battle against plane crashes, train crashes, meteor impacts and terrorists for a while now, and the popular game has finally made its way over to the Play Store to allow Android users to get in on the action as well.
When you're a space marine, getting captured by aliens is a real drag. You don't get to shoot stuff and you have to slave away in the anathema mines! In Dynamite Jack, you get to bust out of the mines with just a flashlight and an ample supply of bombs. This is a top-down 2D action game, but there's a prominent stealth component that looks very cool.
There are 28 official levels to complete in Dynamite Jack filled with guards, robots, and other hazards.
Whatever you have planned this evening, I suggest you clear some time in your busy schedule to play a little Tupsu. What is Tupsu? It's a physics-based puzzler that you can play on your Android device, and you can leave the (Google) wallet in your (virtual) pocket – Tupsu is totally free.
Tupsu (the thing, not the game) is a furry little ball with sticky eyes on long flexible stalks.
At the end of October, Rockstar Studios announced that the mobile version of its smash-hit Grand Theft Auto: Vice City would be coming to Android and iOS. Now, it has announced an official release date of December 6, with a $4.99 price tag across all platforms.
The release marks the 10th anniversary of a game many remember from the Xbox and Playstation 2. This version will be enhanced for mobile screens, including updated character models, lighting, and different control options that should make the experience as smooth as possible.
Wreck-It Ralph's a nice guy. But he's also a bad guy. So he's a bad nice guy. Or a nice bad guy. Either way, he's tired of being a bad guy, so he wants to be a nice good guy. But in the world of video games, every action title needs an antagonist. And that's Ralph's job - until he abandons his game to search for a new place where he doesn't have to be a bad guy.
Fact: the Evil Dead trilogy is one of the greatest pieces of cinematic horror ever created. There is no arguing it. And now, you can live all the fantastic, undead awesomeness of the final film, Army of Darkness, on your mobile. I'll give you a minute to soak up what you just read.
Army of Darkness: Defense is available on Android courtesy of Backflip Studios. In the game, you play the role of Ash (!) - complete with chainsaw arm and boomstick - and fight the undead masses to protect the Necronomicon and Lord Arthur's castle.
If you're a fan of tower defense games, then you've probably played one of the first two Tower Raiders (or both). You probably also know what a saturated market the TD scene is. So, what's a title like TR to do to stand out in the crowd? Create a completely immersive environment - that's what.
I have to say it looks pretty amazing, and I'm not even a big fan of TD games.
If you're not familiar with the 8-bit adventures developed by OrangePixel (see some of our past coverage here, and here), you should probably check them out. Their latest and greatest, Meganoid 2 - the sequel to their most popular title, Meganoid - just hit the Play Store.
Meganoid is inspired by the ultra-difficult (and ultra-fun) platformers on the 1980's and 90's. And yes, it's supposed to look like that.
We've all been there: some crazy moon phase happens, awakening hordes of sleeping monsters that are now dead set on destroying... everything. When that happen in my town, I usually grab some sort of diabolical weapon and start swinging it like a madman, destroying every beasty that comes towards me. For those who haven't had the pleasure of experiencing this fascinating event, there's TinyLegends - Crazy Knight.
This game comes to us from the iOS side of the world, where it has achieved quite a solid fanbase.
