[Review] SilverTree Media's Sleepy Jack Is A Phenomenal Game Full Of Dreamy Creativity And Imagination

About a week ago, we mentioned Sleepy Jack in a new-game roundup. I recently picked it up and haven't been able to put it back down since! If you can remember bringing your toys to life using the power of childhood imagination (or even if you can't), this game is sure to get your mind going.

First Things First

Sleepy Jack has to be one of the most creative, well-made mobile games I've played to date, and I've played quite a few.

[Review] Polarbit's Tank Riders Has Good Gameplay But Needs Work

The other day, Polarbit released a new game called Tank Riders, and I was thoroughly excited to get my hands on my own tiny tank. I mean, who doesn't want to control a miniature tank and blow things up with miniature artillery? Nobody, that's who.

First Things First

At first glace, this game seems to have all of the action-packed fun you'd need to last a while. Polarbit boasts rich and vibrant graphics, attacking hordes of bad guys in single-player campaign mode, playing against other tiny tank riders in online multiplayer, and downloadable content that will keep the game fresh and exciting.

[Review] Vector Unit's Shine Runner Puts Hillbilly Fun In The Palm Of Your Hand

Having harbored a lifelong love of both moonshine and wreaking havoc in souped-up airboats, I was naturally excited when we came across Shine Runner. Finally, I can blaze across backcountry bayous, smuggling only the finest hillbilly necessities. This game is the latest from Vector Unit, makers of Riptide GP, and it is sure to bring out the hillbilly in you.

First Things First

The concept of this game is quite simple - you are an airboat-riding hillbilly out to smuggle several different backcountry essentials around the bayou.

[New Game] Inertia Escape Velocity Is A Side-Scroller That Will Infuriate And Confuse You In The Greatest Way Possible

If there's one thing we love here at Android Police more than anything, it's puppies. That usually doesn't come into play here, though, so we often deal with our very close second favorite thing: Amazingly playable, gorgeously rendered, ingeniously designed games. I just so happen to have one of those right here.

Inertia Escape Velocity is a game in which you play a futuristic scavenger collecting what I can only assume are generic, mass produced future-machine parts.

ASUS Transformer Prime Initial Impressions: Four Isn't A Prime Number, But It Sure Feels Special

Around midday yesterday, I received my review kit for the Transformer Prime, complete with dock, wireless gamepad, and HDMI cable - meaning I'm well equipped to take a deep dive into the hottest new tablet to hit stores. But to be completely honest, an in-depth review on a product this brand-spanking-new requires more hands-on time than can be had in two days. The full review will be up on Friday, but in the interim, enjoy the initial impressions and gadget porn below.

[Review] Adobe Photoshop Touch Is The (Almost) Perfect Tablet-Friendly Adaptation Of Its Desktop Counterpart

Next in our series of reviews centered around Adobe's Touch Apps is Photoshop Touch, a nearly perfect paring-down of its desktop counterpart. While Photoshop Touch may be a little simplified, it still has a ton of features, and packs in almost all of the things I need for on-the-go photo editing.

At A Glance

Essentially, Photoshop Touch is a more basic version of the desktop software, with Creative Cloud connectivity and Android 3.1+ compatibility thrown in.

Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Wi-Fi Review: It's Almost The Perfect Tablet, But Excellence Comes At A High Price

The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is the best Android tablet I have ever used - hands down. No contest, nothing else comes even close. I've used the Tab 10.1, the Toshiba Thrive, the Motorola XOOM, the ASUS Transformer, the HTC Flyer, the Acer Iconia A500, and the original Galaxy Tab. The Tab 10.1 is probably the next best thing (with TouchWiz UX), but it seems downright slow next to the Tab 7.0 Plus at times.

[Review] Jaybird Freedom Stereo Bluetooth Headset: Awesome... If You Don't Actually Talk On Your Phone

How many times has this happened to you: While listening to music, something snags the chord of your earbuds, forcefully ripping them from your head. Yeah, I know what you're thinking, and I agree -- there are few things in this world that make me that mad almost instantly. Fortunately, there is an easy way to avoid such a catastrophe from ever happening again: a stereo Bluetooth headset.

Today we'll be taking a look at one such headset: the Jaybird Freedom Wireless Bluetooth (isn't that sort of redundant?) Buds.

Case Review: Trident Kraken AMS For EVO 3D - Full Protection, Full Size, Full Price

I won't lie: I'm not in the habit of applying cases to my phone. After all, my EVO 3D is hardly fragile, and cases often add bulk to a handset and distort its aesthetics.

So when I received an offer to review Trident's latest addition to its premium mobile protection portfolio, the Kraken AMS, I was skeptical. Nevertheless, I'm never one to turn down a review unit, so I accepted it, tested it out, and found myself somewhat surprised.

[Review] Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9: Thin And Sexy Drops A Size, But TouchWiz Kills Some Brain Cells Along The Way

Samsung was kind enough to send a Galaxy Tab 8.9 our way for review last week ("surprise!"), and I have to say: this thing is thin, light, sexy... and Samsung's custom user interface (UI), TouchWiz, is not fit for tablets.

At A Glance

Let's take a quick look at the specs:

  • Android 3.1 (Honeycomb)
  • 8.9" WXGA display (1280x800)
  • 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 CPU
  • 16/32GB storage
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 2.0MP front-facing camera, 3.0MP camera around back
  • 802.11a/b/g/n
  • Samsung's TouchWiz UI

The specs may be fairly standard by now, but they still power Android every bit as well as they have in the past.
