In Boss Monster, you are the big baddie at the end of a level, and you can only win by killing more good guys than the miscreants you're competing with.

Google is making two changes to the Play Store today, although one of these changes technically happened a few weeks ago and you didn't notice. Apps will soon carry content ratings so parents can make more informed decisions about what their kids have access to. Google also announced a manual review process for apps. Don't panic! Google has been doing this for weeks and no one has complained.
I'm an American, and all of the people I know who are into cricket are immigrants. I would let them tell you all about the sport, but they're not the ones writing for AP, so I'll do what I can.
Basically, cricket is a sport that involves gloves and bats that isn't baseball.
Okay, now that we've gone over the basics, let's talk about Stick Cricket 2, the latest release in a very popular series of sports titles. Read More
Direct carrier billing is one of the most convenient ways to buy apps and content from the Play Store. Instead of making sure you have a valid credit or debit card or trying to find gift cards or setting up a Paypal account, you can simply have the purchase amount billed with your regular mobile service.
