The original Angry Birds took flight on Android way, way back in 2010. It was followed by a number of spin-offs and expansions, but now the true sequel has arrived. You can tell by the name—Angry Birds 2. Rovio (and the market for mobile games in general) has changed dramatically in the years since the first game was released, so you can probably guess what that means. Yes, lots of in-app purchases. Sorry, guys.
It's time to crack open a Nuka Cola and drink a toast to Bethesda. After several weeks of verbal and emotional abuse at the hands of rabid Android users, the company has announced a release date for Fallout Shelter on Android. It's coming August 13th.
Sure, jetpacks seem like a good idea at first, then you realize how hard it would be to not die while using one. Piloteer gives form to that fear with a mercilessly challenging physics simulator. You have a jetpack in this game, but it doesn't have any fancy gyroscopic stabilizers or wussy safety measures. You fly, you fail (fabulously), you fly again.
In the main career mode of Piloteer, you are given 60 different missions across three lovely art deco levels. The missions can be anything from land in this spot, to stay in the air for 5 seconds, to fly through these rings.
Most games that deal with warfare are centered on soldiers and shooting at things, but This War of Mine (from 11bit Studios, maker of the Anomaly games) is a very different experience. This survival-strategy game follows the regular people caught up in the violence and hardship of war. Can you survive, and what sort of decisions will you have to make in the process?
NVIDIA partnered with several game developers to release four premium mobile games last week that were optimized for Tegra chips. Three of those games (Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Never Alone, and Funk of Titans) showed up on time, but Q.U.B.E. was nowhere to be found. Well, it's here now.
The new game Xenowerk takes place in a mysterious underground science laboratory. It's not clear what sort of research was being conducted there, but whatever it was resulted in an infestation of gross mutants. It's up to you to eradicate them.
You might have heard that Disney is releasing a new Star Wars film at the end of this year. You might also have heard that it has tossed out almost all the non-film pre-acquisition content produced under license from Lucasfilm. That leaves a lot of gaps in Star Wars canon, but the upcoming mobile game Star Wars: Uprising might get things back on track a bit. It's set between Return of the Jedi and the new film.
You at your boat. It's a sad, boring little boat. Certainly not good enough to help you travel the world. The only way to improve it is to go adventuring and recruit some new blood. You do that by matching tiles, of course.
You've played endless runners, but have you played one that goes up and down instead of left to right? Granted, this is not the most innovative idea for a game, but Halfbrick makes some polished stuff. In Radical Rappelling you have to get down from a mountain without running into anything. A simple enough proposition, but easier said than done.
If a mountain is infested with Yetis, you should probably ski someplace else. Even one Yeti is probably too many. Still, everyone is hitting the slopes in Skiing Yeti Mountain. This game has hundreds of courses to tear up and an undisclosed number of Yetis to avoid.
