OrangePixel's original Groundskeeper was more of an experiment than a full game, an endless survivor-shooter in the company's typical old-school 2D style. The sequel retains the look and feel, but everything has been expanded: there's now a full story behind the tiny compartmentalized levels, you have access to a staggering amount of weapons, and the graphics and on-screen action have been given a considerable boost.

The game features the developer's usual calling cards: retro basics dialed up to 11.

If you're a dedicated shooter player, you know that the experience doesn't easily translate to mobile games. Glu's Frontline Commando gets around this by discarding free movement and switching to a completely cover-based system, smartly freeing up the limited controls for aiming and weapon management. The sequel just landed in the Play Store as a free download. Yes, this is a free game with in-app purchases - if that's a problem for you, you can stop reading right here and start drafting your snarky and dismissive comment now.

Minigore-Thumb
Last Updated: February 7th, 2014

Blood is a peculiar thing. The mere sight of it grosses many of us out, but if it's pixelated and splattered all over an HD display, we can't get enough. Minigore is the kind of game that doesn't beat around the bush - it's violent, it's bloody, and it's uncomfortably adorable. The sequel has now made its way over to Android in all of its gory glory.
