World Of Tanks Blitz Brings The Popular PC MOBA To The Play Store With Android-iOS Cross-Platform Battles

Fans of online PC action games will be aware of World of Tanks, a popular free-to-play tank simulator that's frequently updated with added content. iOS has had access to a simplified version for over a year, which would normally cause some ire among Android gamers. But I'm prepared to give developer Wargaming a pass on this one, since World of Tanks Blitz is launching with cross-platform play between Android and iOS, ensuring a healthy population of online players right from the start.

World of Tanks is a soft sim: while it does include authentic tank models and battlefields inspired by WWII locations, the third-person perspective and forgiving controls put the focus squarely on the combat.

[New Game] RE-VOLT 2: Multiplayer Takes The Pint-Sized Racer Online And Into Free-To-Play Territory

Many fans of the original PS1-era RE-VOLT were thrilled when a port was released on Android last year. The portable version included all of the goofy kart-style racing that made the original a sleeper hit... with one exception. Both the remastered version and the free-to-play edition lacked online multiplayer, which was a crucial part of the old game. Well, except for the online part. That's been addressed in RE-VOLT 2: Multiplayer, available now as a free download.

The same simple 3D graphics and amazingly tight controls return from the first game - seriously, these are probably as good as touchscreen controls get on Android.

The Galaxy S5 has been making the rounds since its global launch a week ago. It's already available at the major US carriers, and now it's trickling down to the smaller options out there.

[New Game] Popular Multiplayer Strategy Game Clash Of Clans Invades The Play Store In Search Of More Players

People love real-time strategy games. They're immensely immersive, as it's almost a necessity to create elaborate worlds in order to conjure up enough units to make the game worth playing. WarCraft's universe was captivating enough to spawn an MMORPG that has since enthralled millions of players worldwide. Some long-time gamers may scoff at the idea of mentioning Clash of Clans in the same breath as such a proven franchise, but with leagues of players using mobile devices and a free-to-play model, it somewhat embodies what a modern day take on the real-time strategy genre would be, and now the smash hit title has made its way over to Android.

[New Game] Gameloft Launches Total Conquest For Android, Sends Legions Of Gamers To Wage War Online

Caesar's dead, and now Gameloft's calling on gamers to form alliances and go to war over who should rule in his place. Sure, Caesar's death could cause some of us to question whether someone other than a general should have a shot at governance, but now's not the time for such hesitation. This is the time for Total Conquest.

Ragnarok Valkyrie Uprising Brings Addictive Anime-Style MMO Fun To Android

To say that Koreans get into video games more than most of us would be an understatement. Sure, we may stay up til midnight to play a sweet new game, but these guys build friggin' stadiums to play them in. Starcraft isn't the only game that's taken off in  Korea, though. Ragnarok Online has been a huge MMORPG in the country that spread worldwide and is now landing on Android.

The mobile MMO features a touchscreen-oriented UI (as you'd expect), a solo mode or online play for users who want to play with a party. Interestingly, you can also login to the game via Facebook, which may be a change for most MMO players.
