There's a new tower defense game on Android seeking your eyeballs and your money. It's called Prime World: Defenders and you can play it on Android and Facebook today with full gameplay sync. Yeah, you might hate Facebook, but not everyone does.
On the surface this is a traditional tower defense game – all the usual upgradable towers and waves of creeps are present and accounted for. In addition to all that, however, there's a collectable card element to Prime World: Defenders.
Agent 47 is back, but this time he's a bit less animated. In fact, he and all the guards he's going to strangle are game pieces in the new Hitman Go from Square Enix.

In Wordbase, you have to reach the opponents base not by traversing mountains and flanking opposing forces, but with your words. You'll get there one letter at a time, even if you have to fight dirty. It's a licentious linguistic battle, but no one ever said it'd be pretty.

Everything about OTTTD seems bananas – there are flying mechanical sharks, an octopus riding a motorcycle, zombie butchers, and many other exotic creatures that you will encounter and blow to bits with an array of defense towers and heroes.

Readers of a certain age may remember when MacGyver was a show on TV and not just a campy way to refer to tinkering with junk to make neat stuff.

The top-down dual stick shooter has been a staple of mobile gaming for years, but that doesn't mean it's all played out. JoyJoy from Radiangames has a neat look and customizable controls. Oh, and there are no in-app purchases, an increasingly rare attribute.
