Killing Floor: Calamity, A Top-Down Adaptation Of The Popular First Person Shooter, Comes To Google Play

Killing Floor is exactly what it sounds like. Okay, no, it's not a game about a floor that eats everything it touches. We call that game hot lava, and it's much less gruesome than this one. No, Killing Floor is a first person shooter where you kill everything on the same floor as you that looks like it might be a zombie. Sure, it may actually be the result of a failed cloning experiment, but if it looks like a zombie and sounds like a zombie, shoot it.

Killing Floor: Calamity is a twin-stick version made for mobile devices. It's still a co-op experience like the Steam version that gamers fawned over back in 2009.

Farming Simulator 2016 Plows Into The Play Store With Better Graphics, Different Crops, More Vehicles, And New Ways To Navigate The Rural Job Market

I'm from a part of Virginia where you learn different crops not because you're a farmer, but because there isn't much else to look at during the bus ride to school. Similarly, you start to recognize different types of tractors not because you aspire to drive one someday, but because you've spent untold hours stuck behind them on a one lane road.

I moved away as soon as I got the chance, and while I don't yearn to return to such a place, I imagine there are rural expatriates who long to return to the smell of dirt and cow manure.

Save Your Neighborhood From Aliens In Augmented Reality Tower Defense Game 'Clandestine: Anomaly'

The tower defense genre may not have been born on mobile devices, but it's a match made in heaven. Tapping on stationary structures and slowly moving units is a gameplay style better suited to touchscreens than gamepads or, arguably, mice. The basics have been done to death by now, so developers are coming up with creative new ways to expand the genre.

In Clandestine: Anomaly (no relation to the superb Anomaly series of tower defense games), developer ZenFri has combined top-down strategy with augmented reality. Here's a game that doesn't just rely on your touchscreen, it needs your camera and GPS as well.

Kappsule's Latest Game 'Battle Golf' Is A Free Way To Defeat Menacing Creatures With A Solid Stroke

Golf balls have much in common with projectile weapons. They're small. They're shaped like musket balls. Sometimes they cut through the air too quickly for the eye to follow. You could do a lot of damage with one, if you think about it.

Developer Kappsule, creator of Wrassling, apparently has. Battle Golf is the result. In this not-quite-a-sports-game, you swing a club at a ball just like you would in a virtual golf course. But when you land that hole-in-one, you're not just showing off your skills—you're doing battle.

See that blowhole at the top of the angry whale? If you drop enough golf balls in there, you can get it to leave you alone.

Googler Kirill Grouchnikov likes to clue everyone into the subtle design tweaks in upcoming versions of the Play Store as they roll out, and today he's posted not once, not twice, but three times about a slick new hamburger animation. Is that overkill? I don't know... it's a pretty cool animation.

Some Users Are Seeing 'Related Interests' Categories On The Play Store

Google is certainly no stranger to testing new features slowly. Most recently, it released an update to YouTube's UI that's been in testing for at least four months. And for Google, this is a good thing. Testing new features with limited samples of users helps get data not only on their usefulness, but also on how they augment user experience and engagement.

That brings us to the Play Store, an app where nothing is more important than engagement. Google appears to be testing a new feature called "Related Interests," which lists off various categories with round chips similar to the chips used for artists on Google Play Music's web interface.
