If you've got a hankering for a good top-down turn-based RPG, Shadowrun Online will have you covered... eventually. The developers have been promoting a Kickstarter to fund the development of their game, and it has passed its goal of $500,000. That means Shadowrun Online will be coming to Android, among other platforms, in May 2013. Yes, that's quite a wait, but now there is some sweet gameplay footage to tide you over.

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.

Part of the game takes place in a sim space colony where you build shops, tech, and bolster your forces for missions.

Ouya just can't stay out of the headlines, can it? After recently announcing that the TV-centric Android gaming system would come with built-in OnLive support, the company is back to say that it's partnering with Square Enix to bring Final Fantasy III to your TV. If you live in Japan, this might be old news, but it marks the first time anywhere else that the game will be available via a television-based console.

The latest installment of Com2uS' Inotia series - sub-titled Assassin of Berkel - is now available for download in the Play Store. I'm not going to pretend to have any idea how this version compares to previous versions (since I haven't played them), but I will say this: it looks cool and the Store description sells the game quite well:

- 6 Classes, 90 Skills
Choose from 6 classes; Black Knight, Assassin, Warlock, Priest, and Ranger.

You are Cthulhu. Feels good, doesn't it, being an ancient Elder God? Well, I've got some bad news for you. Your powers have been stolen. Don't ask me how the mighty Cthulhu lost his powers, but he did. Now, it's up to you to get them back by becoming a hero and saving the world...so you can destroy it later.

Cthulhu Saves The World is styled like an old SNES, 16-bit RPG, and it's every bit as charming as Chrono Trigger or Final Fantasy.

final fantasy 3

Final Fantasy III, whose previously old-school fanbase has become somewhat more mobile over the past few years, has made it to the final frontier of smartphone/tablet gaming at long last: the Play Store. The game is available now - but before you get too excited, take a good, hard look at that $16 price tag.

Following up on the success of the self-billed "blockbuster casual platform action RPG" Illusia, GAMEVIL recently released Illusia 2 to the Play Store, promising a "thrilling storyline full of twists and turns," and "endless customizable options."

For those unfamiliar with the original game, Illusia is a side-scrolling RPG with heavy fantasy influence and a focus on quests, equipment upgrades, and overall immersive gameplay. Illusia 2, in keeping with the original, offers a rich, colorful art style, core RPG elements, and a compelling storyline.

Kemco Games, the team behind a slew of popular role-playing games for Android, has introduced the English version of Aeon Avenger today, bringing to market an impressively polished time-travelling RPG. Like Kemco's other RPGs, Aeon Avenger features gameplay reminiscent of old Final Fantasy adventures, and delivers a "story of revenge through time and space."

Aeon's story follows a young man named Lake, whose rural home town is attacked by "the man in black," who also murdered Lake's parents.

If you're a fan of old school turn-based RPGs, then you're going to love the game Konami just dropped into the Android Market: a throwback to the days of 16-bit  console gaming called Ash.

The game puts you in the crumbling Empire of Aghaus, and follows the story of a pair of mercenaries after a "routine contract takes an unexpected turn" and throws them into the middle of a war that "consumes the entire continent." Sounds pretty intense.
