Playworld Superheroes Turns Your Pretend Cardboard Helmet Into A Full-Blown Superhero Costume, Complete With Powers, For $3.99

Playworld Superheroes serves as an example that a game aimed for kids doesn't have to be second rate.

This immersive title gives players a chance to create their own superhero, much the way many of us have done in our childhood years. You create an imaginary costume using whatever household supplies you have lying around―whether that be a cardboard box or some stickers—and apply crayons and glue. Then you watch as the game turns your haphazard creation into a full-blown, customized suit of armor.

Play Store 5.4 Makes The Notification Bar Transparent On App Pages [APK Download]

The Play Store is where you go to watch your other apps get updated, but occasionally it's nice to sit back and watch as the store gets its own renovation. Sometimes the changes are stark. Other times, there are just a few new lights here or there.

What's New?

In version 5.4, it's not about what's been added, but what's been taken away. The notification bar has lost its color. Now Play Store pages appear with banner images that reach towards the top of the screen.

SNK Playmore Hits Android With A Fatal Fury Special, Walks Away With $3.99

Most of the games in the Play Store from SNK Playmore are related to The King of Fighters and Metal Slug franchises, but these are far from the only ones the company has produced over the years.

Now the company has released the arcade hit Fatal Fury Special into the Play Store as well.

BlinkFeed Launcher Becomes HTC Sense Home, Comes With Themes And Intelligent Widget

BlinkFeed debuted with the HTC One M7, and while not everyone appreciates a Flipboard-style home screen with limited news sources, it has its fans. HTC uploaded the launcher into the Play Store last year in time for the M8 launch, and for the M9's release it has renamed the app to Sense Home.

HTC's new homescreen implements a few predictive capabilities that we've seen pop up over the past year or two in apps such as Aviate and EverythingMe.

Google Quietly Removes Its Finance App From The Play Store

The typical Update Wednesdays, wherein Google released new versions of its many and varied Android apps, will be a little less busy from now on. Not that Google released many updates for the Android version of Google Finance anyway - according to the Internet Archive, the last time the app was touched was way back in January of 2013. In any case, it's gone now: Finance disappeared from the Play Store without ceremony last night.

HTC Releases Calendar And Print Studio Apps Into The Play Store

HTC has uploaded two apps onto Google Play intended to facilitate future updates. One of the two will look familiar to people who have owned some of the company's previous phones. The other is something new. Both are presumably only compatible with the M9 for now, as they're not playing along with the M7s and M8s that we have lying around.

HTC Calendar

HTC Calendar is the former. It doesn't look all that different from prior versions.

Developers Can Now 'Halt' A Staged Rollout To Minimize The Fallout Of A Bad Update

For an app developer, there's nothing worse than finding out your latest update is catastrophically flawed and blowing up for your users. This is the reason Google introduced the alpha and beta channels, and then added staged rollouts. These features give developers a way to steadily release new versions into the wild, discover their bugs, and fix them before a wide release. However, all of this still relies on treating some of your users as guinea pigs.

Square Enix And DeNA Release 'Final Fantasy Record Keeper,' Let You Relive Those Nostalgic Memories In A Free-To-Play Format

Final Fantasy Record Keeper has been out for a bit in Japan, and now it's opening up to a larger market, overwhelming even more players with heavy doses of unapologetic 90s nostalgia (and some from the early 2000s). The game lets you relive Final Fantasy highlights using a combination of your favorite heroes shrunken down into cute, little sprites.
