[New Game] Pacific Rim Gets A Second Official Android Game: Surprise, It's An Infinity Blade Clone

Pacific Rim comes to theaters tomorrow, and I'm already planning my route. Giant robots, Godzilla-style monsters, and a complete absence of Shia LaBeouf - what more could you want from a summer blockbuster? How about an official Android game... or two? The "full" Pacific Rim game comes from Reliance Games, a developer that tends to specialize in licensed titles. It's not to be confused with the other official game, which is more of an AR gimmick.

[New Game] Uppercut Games' New Shooter, EPOCH, Shows Why Killer Robots Never Go Out Of Style

Cylons. The Terminator. Gort. Johnny 5. Science fiction seems more than a little obsessed with the idea of murderous automatons, and with good reason: it works. Newcomer developer Uppercut Games has taken the trope to mobile gaming with EPOCH, a post-apocalyptic shooter that does away with the humans altogether (to make room for more robots). The Unreal Engine powers this graphical beast, and it's available for $4.99 for all devices - or at least the ones that can handle it.

'Shoot Many Robots' Lands On Android, Just Please Don't Kill Andy

"Shoot the robots, kill them all, in the park, at your house, or even at the mall.

Shoot them high, and shoot them low, shoot them stop, and shoot them go. Shoot them here and shoot them there, you can shoot them anywhere!"  -Nurse Seuss (Dr. Seuss' lesser-known cousin, for obvious reasons)

If you remember that childhood story and developed a deep-seated hatred for robots as a result, the time has come to Shoot Many Robots.

Even though ExZeus 2 was announced for this summer, it’s not until this weekend that it finally came to Google Play.

[New Game] Kairosoft's Kairobotica Is A Colorful Space-Based Sim-venture Game That Will Have You Drooling Rainbows

Quick. Name the top three most time-consuming video games you can. Did you say RPGs, sims and "anything that even remotely looks like Farmville"? Well, one, Farmville already is kind of a sim so that doesn't really count and two, yes! Now, what happens if you mix all of these together into one big, colorful Japanese game? You get Kairobotica.

Z Origins Makes Its Way To Android, Reminds You That RTS Games Existed Before Command And Conquer

It seems that mobile gaming is a haven for all the old classics to reappear. Rising even further from the ashes of the past than most other recent arrivals comes Z Origins, a remake of the RTS from the DOS days simply called "Z" by The Bitmap Brothers. It predates notable fan favorite Command and Conquer from Westwood Studios. Though it did come out roughly four years after Dune II (also from Westwood) which served as the archetype for most RTS games to follow, Z departs from traditional RTS gameplay in that collection of resources and structure construction as a requisite for certain units were not part of the game.

Android: A Look Back To 2011, And A Look Forward To 2012

Happy New Year! A new year means it's time for the annual Android prediction post. First off though, a trip down memory lane with a look at Aaron's post from last year.

A Look Back To 2011

Way back in January 2011, we were all gobsmacked at the recent announcement of 300,000 Android activations per day. That looks cute now, doesn't it? A year later and it's more than doubled, now we're up to 700,000 per day.

Mattel Releases Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots To The Android Market, Adds A New Dimension To The Original Button Masher

Looking to rekindle some childhood nostalgia (and make a buck doing so), Mattel has release Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots to the Android Market. Rock 'Em Sock 'Em brings all the fun of the classic children's game to the palm of your hand, and adds a few twists. Unfortunately the game doesn't support true multiplayer just yet.

Adding some enhancements to the original button mashing game you know and love, Rock 'Em Sock 'Em includes a gym training feature (your robot can train and level up between fights), defense maneuvers, and health/energy meters, meaning you can't furiously tap the controls for very long before your robot gets tuckered out.

[New Game] OrangePixel's "INC" Is An 8-Bit Platform/Shooter for $2.75

Orange Pixel, creators of the well-received "Meganoid", just released a platform/shooter called "INC".

There are 40 levels of robot blasting action, and 8-bit styling and sound effects. It's sort of like Mega Man. The description claims "hard-but-fair gameplay," so there's retro difficulty to go along with those retro graphics. Xperia Play owners will be glad to hear that all their fancy buttons are supported (like you couldn't tell from the giant video thumbnail).
