Bringing a rocket-powered weasel and challenging puzzle action to the palm of your hand, Freeze Tag Games recently introduced Rocket Weasel to the Android Market.
The game follows the story of Mr. Weasel, leader of "Weasel's School for Hunting Chickens," who takes his students on a late night field trip to a hen house. In a wild twist of fate, the farmer traps Weasel's students in surprisingly sophisticated hanging cages, leaving Mr. Weasel to rescue them while also capturing up to three chickens per level. The game is your basic trajectory-based puzzler, requiring players to carefully calculate direction and magnitude to blast through each cage.
Demolition Inc., a popular action/strategy which made its debut on Steam about five months ago, is headed for Android by way of NVIDIA's Tegra Zone, expected to land sometime in March.
According to NVIDIA, the game is "100% physics technology," leaving just about everything up to the player. Demolition Inc. follows the story of a demolition worker named Mike, who happens to pilot a UFO.
While flying Mike's UFO over various Earth cities, players can use a variety of weapons and tools to wreak havoc on the planet. Players can drop explosive cows, self-driven cars, and even high rise buildings on cities in an effort to utterly annihilate Earth.
You know how it goes. You're sitting back in your recliner, watching your numerous security feeds, monitoring your piles and piles of cheese, when suddenly, the mice sneak in to steal all your Pepperjack and Gorgonzola! How dairy they! Also, you're a cat. That's the premise of Cheese Tower, a puzzle game that challenges you to remove square mice from a stack of square cheese without dropping any cheese.
Tapping the mice will make them disappear, causing the tower to begin to fall. Of course, we don't want to lose that precious cheese, now do we? Our hero curd be a bit more careful.
Meet Yello, a fish that was probably named by a two-year-old because the child thought he looked vaguely yellowish and he doesn't really know how to spell. He also doesn't quite understand how fish breathe, because he's rather sadistically yanked Yello from his bowl for "a walk." It's up to you to save Yello... by yanking on his tail and flinging him into piles of things until he eventually lands in his bowl.
Did we mention you get to set Yello on fire, too? Yeah, it's awesome.
The game will feel familiar to anyone who's played Angry Birds (read: all of you).
Tongue Tied, a young yet popular game for iOS has finally gotten the Android treatment from its creators at Mojo Bones Ltd, bringing the slapstick physics/platforming game to Android users everywhere today.
Tongue Tied fuses physics and platform gameplay styles with the wacky story of two dogs (Mick and Ralph) who are literally tongue tied. As shown in the video above, players can expect to bounce, swing, and jump through about 60 levels "in search of the elusive WonderBone."
Besides offering dozens of levels to play through, Tongue Tied has score-based medals for each level, as well as 33 extra challenges with "some of the most interesting unlockables you're likely to see!" Adding even more to the game's replay value are trick and bonus scoring systems, allowing advanced players to be rewarded for traversing each level with extra panache.
Remember way back in May, when NVIDIA showed off Glowball to demonstrate the Tegra 3's awesome quad-core power? Well, it looks like the full version of the visually stunning, technologically fascinating "interactive demo" has made its way to the Tegra Zone.
Glowball isn't quite a game, as it consists of just two levels, and was specifically designed to showcase the Tegra 3's power, but it certainly seems like an enjoyable doodad for your Tegra 3 device. Users can play through richly detailed Carnival and Sea Floor environments, rolling about and experiencing the power of NVIDIA PhysX, as environmental elements hit back or otherwise react to user input.
Built using Unreal Engine 3, Da Vinci THD is the first full game to appear for Tegra 3 devices, and seems to be packing some serious online FPS gameplay. The game is set during the Renaissance, just after Da Vinci's death, when "heroes of [the] Renaissance" begin battling to capture a mysterious machine created by the famed inventor and artist. The real story, though, is Da Vinci's gameplay.
Players can explore beautifully crafted environments, and utilize powerful weapons while battling with (or against) other players online. What's interesting about Da Vinci, is that there is a PC version in the works as well, which will open up a much larger opportunity for rich online play.
Beyond Ynth may not be the most catchy title in the world, but the game has already proved to be a big hit on the iOS App Store for both iPhone and iPad.
If you're familiar with the game, you'll no doubt be pleased to know that it has made the big jump across to the Android world, and is now available to buy from the Market for $3.99.
The game itself is quite simple: you must complete various puzzles on multiple levels, recovering stolen diamonds along the way. These puzzles not only look great, but the physics involved in them is very realistic as well, making for an immersive gaming experience that few mobile games can offer.
Combining physics-based gameplay with outer space action/strategy combat, Space Conquest challenges the player to "save the solar system from complete annihilation."
The game provides players with a wide array of unlockable ships, each with their own arsenal. The game also allows for completely customizable fleets, each battling enemies with relatively sophisticated AI, against a backdrop of large swaths of stars and other outer space scenery. In contrast with the detailed, beautiful starscapes in Space Conquest, the ships themselves are comprised of neon, polygonal outlines, giving the game a unique visual style.
For just $0.99 in the Android Market, Space Conquest provides a visually stimulating experience while forming an intriguing hybrid between defense, action, and physics-based gaming styles at a bargain.
Save Toshi is an iOS port that comes to us from developer Nitako. In the game, you are tasked with getting pop star Toshi onto a dancefloor, as her dancing kills demons. The storyline is very "Japan," as are the voice effects that accompany each of Toshi's movements. The voice acting is actually quite annoying, but the game (mercifully) comes with an option to turn it off.
Unless the anime aesthetic appeals to you, there's a good chance that Save Toshi won't be your cup of tea. However, there are certain things you can appreciate about this game - specifically, its new twist on an older formula.
