The original Ghosts 'N Goblins comes to the Play Store for one dollar

As part of its recent push to mobilize its classic arcade portfolio, Capcom has dusted off 1985's famous action-platformer for an Android release. Ghosts 'N Goblins, first released in the arcade more than 30 years ago, now has an official port in the Play Store going for 99 cents. It's playable on just about any phone or tablet running Android 4.1 or above, but sadly, not with Android TV or Bluetooth controllers. As some of the game's bad guys would say: boo.

Capcom releases 1942 Mobile, but is it any good?

What is this? Another classic Capcom title with the word "Mobile" affixed at the end? If you think that looks eerily familiar to the Mega Man Mobile games recently released on the Play Store, you would be correct. Sadly, this means that 1942 Mobile is not a port of the arcade classic but a rehash of one of their mobile JAVA releases from years back. Yep that is correct, this is a port of a flip-phone game. While not necessarily a bad thing in and of itself the question remains... has Capcom learned from past mistakes?

Noodlecake brings the classic 3D adventure game Myst to the Play Store in remastered form

The original Myst games were, somewhat appropriately, lost in time. First released in 1993, Myst debuted just as the point-and-click adventure game genre was dying out in favor of full 3D RPGs and shooters now enabled by more advanced personal computers with CD-ROM drives. Myst tried to bridge the gap: it used the same focus on exploration, puzzle-solving, and narrative that games from Lucasarts and Sierra had relied upon, but added stunning prerendered graphics to make its island mystery more visually compelling. Sequels, spin-offs, and re-releases continued for about ten years, until the tastes of the market shifted once again.

[Update: Better compatibility] Atari brings RCT2-inspired RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic to Android for $5.99

I'm a huge fan of the Roller Coaster Tycoon series. The original two games, RollerCoaster Tycoon 1 and 2, were created by developer legend Chris Sawyer and published by Hasbro Interactive and Infogrames respectively. Both titles, as well as the third entry, were massively popular - but I think most can agree the series declined after that. The latest entry, RollerCoaster Tycoon World, was an unfinished mess that shifted developers several times and currently has a 'Mostly Negative' rating on Steam.

Rockstar's Bully: Anniversary Edition now available for Android, costs $6.99 on the Play Store

Rockstar's 'Bully' was originally released in 2006 for the PlayStation 2, centered around 15 year-old Jimmy Hopkins as he tries to rise through the ranks of the corrupt Bullworth Academy prep school. It generally received good reviews, and two years later, the Scholarship Edition was released for the Wii, Xbox 360, and PC.

Ten years after the game's original release, Rockstar has partnered with War Drum Studios to release Bully: Anniversary Edition for Android and iOS. War Drum Studios has been responsible for every Rockstar mobile port, including the Grand Theft Auto titles, so you know this isn't a shoddy re-release.

[Deal Alert] The original Tomb Raider is down to 10 cents in some countries

If you've never played the original Tomb Raider, you really should. All jokes about Miss Croft's polygonal charms aside, it's a certified classic that was one of the first action games to get third-person shooting and platforming right way back in the PlayStation era. The Android port has been available for over a year for the very fair price of one dollar. But if that's too rich for your blood, the game is back on sale for just ten cents in a lot of countries. And for once, they don't include the US.

Story-Focused Platformer 'Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons' Jumps From PC And Consoles To The Play Store For $3

The latest indie game to immigrate from the huddled masses of Steam is one that makes a lot of sense for mobile. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a 3D platformer, at least broadly: you control one brother with an analog stick on one side of the screen and the other brother with a second stick on the opposite side. If you ever tried to play both sides of The Adventures of Cookie and Cream (AKA Kuri Kuri Mix) by yourself, it's sort of like that, without the division.

MojoTouch Releases Classic Adventure Game 'Flight Of The Amazon Queen' On The Play Store

MojoTouch has been releasing some notable classics of the point-and-click adventure genre for the last few years. First came Simon the Sorcerer (and eventually its sequel               ), then The Seventh Guest. Now the developer has ported Flight of the Amazon Queen, an Indiana Jones-style adventure parody first released for MS-DOS and the Amiga way back in 1995. You can grab it on the Play Store for $4, and the game has no ads or in-app purchases.

LEGO Goes Back To Its Action-Adventure Stomping Grounds With Batman: DC Super Heroes

Later this month, DC will release its next gigantic tentpole movie into theaters, in which Super-Cavill and Batfleck will (presumably) grimace at each other for 150 minutes while Wonder Woman begs them for some screen time. If you prefer your superheroes to have a little fun and self-awareness (and you can't wait for the next Marvel movie to come out), LEGO just released another Batman game in the Play Store. Batman: DC Super Heroes can be yours for $5.

GoPro Acquires Popular iOS Video Editing Apps Replay And Splice, Plans To Launch Android Versions Later This Year

These days, GoPro is the king of the hill for action and aerial photography. Sure, you could wrap some tape around your phone and send it up on a quadcopter or toss it into a sandwich bag and hope it doesn't spring a leak at the bottom of the pool, but those are terrible ideas—seriously, don't try them. Since you won't be putting your phone (or tablet) through near certain destruction, why not use it instead to edit those great videos? GoPro announced that it has acquired popular mobile video editing apps Replay and Splice. Both apps are currently iOS exclusives, but the company has plans to bring them to Android later this year.
