[New Game] DotEmu Resurrects Classic Gobliiins Adventure Games In New Trilogy

DotEmu has made a habit out of bringing beloved retro games to the Play Store in adaptations that are both faithful and technically excellent.

RetroArch Multi-Platform Game Emulator Returns To The Play Store, Get It While You Can

Just about a year ago we reported that the popular multi-platform retro gaming emulator RetroArch had been published to the Play Store. Apparently Google took exception to this, as they've done with a seemingly random assortment of game emulators - some have been viciously torn out of the Play Store, some have been left alone, and Google isn't talking about why it picks one over the other. In any case, RetroArch is back, at least for the moment.

You know that moment you have when you're playing an endless runner and you're ten seconds from beating your record, then you smash into an easily-avoided obstacle by the width of about two pixels?

[New Game] OrangePixel's Heroes Of Loot Hits The Play Store With Endless Dungeon Crawling (And Oh Yeah, Lots Of Loot)

There's an almost obsessive quality to equipping and upgrading your character that makes the RPG genre so addictive for some players. OrangePixel's long-awaited Heroes Of Loot understands that and strips out all the unnecessary fluff like story, character development, and whiz-bang 3D graphics... to make room for more loot. The game is available now on the Play Store in a $2 paid version or a free ad-supported version.

Heroes Of Loot technically fits into the "roguelike" sub-genre thanks to semi-permanent player death and procedurally-generated dungeons.

[New Game] Super Psycho Cycle Is A Game Where You Shoot Bullets At Things And Then They Die

Some video games are true works of art, immersing the player in deep, believable worlds, surrounding them with thoughtful characters, and tying it all together with organic gameplay to create truly immersive experiences. Some video games strap an AK-47 on a motorcycle and let you make "vroom vroom" noises while shooting more lead than the annual NRA duck hunt. Guess which category Super Psycho Cycle falls into.

Super Psycho Cycle falls squarely into the "retro" category, recreating a top-down space shooter with a Harley Davidson theme.

[New Game] SNK Playmore Republishes 2D Favorite The King Of Fighters 2012... For Some Reason

There's something strange going on with SNK's The King of Fighters. Way back in March of 2012 an Android version of the classic 16-bit 2D fighter series was published, with a frustratingly short list of supported devices and no small amount of technical problems. The app disappeared from the US Play Store before too long, only to reappear this July. Now there's a brand new version, The King Of Fighters-A 2012, available alongside the original Android release.
