One of the most visually striking and gratuitously violent games of the previous console generation came out, perhaps surprisingly, for the Nintendo Wii. Sega's MadWorld took place predominately in black and white, but blood continued to spurt out in bright red. The story was told through comic book panels, with comparisons to Sin City basically writing themselves.
That game never received a sequel, but while the freshly ported SXPD belongs to a different genre entirely, it comes with a similar flavor. Read More
Developer Jundroo, LLC builds games that, in turn, let players build other things. While we haven't yet reached buildception (the point where those virtual things go on to build more things of their own), the number of things we're able to build continues to grow.
SimplePhysics let players create structures, just like BridgeBasher before it. SimpleRockets followed with the ability to send custom spaceships to fictional versions of our solar system's planets. Read More
What are some of the most common elements of modern-day 2D platformers? Let's list them out in no particular order: 8-bit visuals, making the game brutally difficult, drawing everything as a silhouette... Electronic Super Joy: Groove City has all of these elements, along with an electronic soundtrack that you will absolutely want to plug in earphones for. The game, which debuted on Steam earlier this summer, may have a few familiar chords and overused lyrics, but it's a welcome addition to the Play Store, where it now resides priced at $4.99.

Amazon is branching off into all sorts of media. Not content to provide you solely with digital books (through text or audio), magazines, TV shows, movies, and whichever apps it can offer alongside the Play Store, it's working with game developers to bring folks exclusive games as well. The latest product of this effort is Tales From Deep Space, which has landed in the Amazon Appstore for $6.99. Read More
The American Red Cross has produced no shortage of high-quality Android apps. When we see the organization's name pop up in the Play Store, we generally know that we're in for something good, possibly even life-saving.
Well, things are a little different this time. You see, the Red Cross's latest app is actually a game for kids. It goes by the name of Monster Guard: Prepare for Emergencies. Read More
I don't watch hockey, and the closest I've come to the sport consisted of living in Pittsburgh for a year and a half, a place where people adamantly stand by their NHL team. (I got caught in traffic when visiting just this weekend due to a Penguins game at the Consol Energy Center, only to see the same match on TV at the restaurant where we wound up that night.) Away from that city, I'm hard pressed to think of someone who can name more than a couple teams. Read More
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. Read More
Limbic has released Zombie Gunship Reality onto Google Play, a game that pretty much no one is able to play at the moment. It's available exclusively for Project Tango, an augmented reality project that has yet to ship on a device intended for general consumers. Unless there's an announcement in the works, one isn't intended for quite some time.
Zombie Gunship Reality takes the popular Zombie Gunship franchise and gives it the Tango treatment, requiring players to move around a physical space in order to find and fire upon the hordes of undead threatening the area below. Read More
Do you want to relive the adventures of The Lord of the Rings trilogy? Of course you do! It's not like reading the original books, watching a blockbuster film series, playing through countless console titles, and devouring fan fiction could adequately immerse anyone in the world J.R.R. Tolkien created six decades ago. So here's a mobile game that you can install on your Android device and take with you absolutely everywhere. Read More
I love Sentinels of the Multiverse, even though my friends and I lose nearly every time we attempt to stand up against Baron Blade and the forces of evil (don't get me started on Omnitron). There's just something about this comic book-inspired card battle game that makes me want to give it my all and work with my teammates to resist the waves of damage being heaped upon us by villains and the environment alike.
