This side-scrolling karate action game was first developed in 1984 by the creator of Prince of Persia, and today a port enters the Play Store nearly 30 years later. Android gamers can now experience one of the grandfathers of the beat 'em up genre.

[New Game] SEGA's Hell Yeah! Pocket Inferno Is The Best Runner Game Starring An Undead Gun-Toting Rabbit On A Rocket Drill You'll Play Today

SEGA has a rich history of platfoming titles to draw upon as it makes the transition to mobile gaming. Alex Kidd. Sonic the Hedgehog. Nights. But one you might not have heard of is Hell Yeah!, a downloadable title from developer Arkedo Studio.

[New Game] AlertEgo: DreamWalker Is Basically What I Imagine Mario Would Look Like After Too Many Mushrooms

Looking for a platformer that'll bend your brain a bit? AlterEgo: DreamWalker is the 8-bit-on-acid sequel to AlterEgo, and basically just builds on its predecessor. More levels, arguably trippier visuals, and the same switch-up platforming action of the original. The game mechanic, by the way, is simple, but fairly novel: you move your character around the platform world, but on the opposite side in a mirrored position as an 'AlterEgo' (the ghost-looking thingy).

[New Game] Manuganu Is A Pretty, Fluid Side-Scrolling Runner From The Maker Of Gravity Project

When I was a kid, I always dreamed of having dark hair, wearing a cow skull on my head, and running through a magical land of swinging hammers, random cliffs, floating platforms of land, other areas of extreme peril. Alas, I'm bald, have no bulls to speak of, and this magical land I've dreamed of for so long is nowhere to be found. Just when I thought my lifelong dream was a bust, we stumbled across MANUGANU.
