If humanity dies out in the future, what are all the robots going to do? Fight, according to EPOCH 2. The first title was one of the prettiest games on Android when it launched a few years back, and the sequel promises to up the ante with more effects, more guns, and many more angry robots.

EPOCH 2 is a cover-based shooter set in a world populated by robots with nothing better to do than shoot at you.

The one-stop zombie-slaying shop known as Dead Trigger 2 has just gotten an update that adds a whole new game mode. If you're always running low on the in-game currency in Dead Trigger 2, maybe the Arena of Death will please you. This is a wave-based game mode where you can take out zombies and earn cash to spend in story mode. But that's not all – arena mode brings a raft of new content with it too.

Update: The game had a showstopper bug, so it's been pulled until tomorrow when a new version will be uploaded.

Update 2: The game should be live again, sans loading bug.

What are you supposed to do when a race of evil machines has taken over your glowing neon space station? Shoot things? Yeah, that sounds about right. Neon Shadow from Crescent Moon Games lets you do just that as the evil Mechanoids seek to eradicate humanity.

Video games make a lot of assumptions about aliens, mainly that they're going to be two-dimensional and prone to shooting at stuff. It's an unfair stereotype, if you ask me, but also makes for a better game. That's very much the case in Super Crossfire which packs a ton of alien-blasting action. Yay for stereotypes.

This game includes 150 waves of glowing alien craft with another 150 that can be unlocked later.

Turn-based gaming is making a bit of a comeback these days, but such titles can easily end up painfully tedious or just not compelling. Breach and Clear is a top-down shooter that seems to aim for a middle ground. You have to carefully position units, leverage special tactics, and keep track of enemies. However, some of the busywork is taken out of your hands. This game has the potential to scratch a tactical itch in a big way.

Breach and Clear stands out in a crowded field of shooters and strategy games, and it's headed your way. In this title you are in control of an elite squad of special ops commandos. In each mission you have to create the perfect plan to move in and neutralize the bad guys. The Android release will also bring new content to the game including additional missions, locations, more enemies, a new set of weapons, and a brand new game mode.

I spent a measurable amount of the early 90's playing Contra on NES. Admittedly, I lacked the manual dexterity at the time to beat the game without using the Konami Code, but now I can take another swing at it on Android. Contra: Evolution is the same game it was in the early 90's, but with a few extra elements.

Contra was indisputably one of the finest shooters of its era, but does it translate well to the modern mobile ecosystem?

The Android faithful have been eagerly awaiting the release of Contra: Evolution, but there were some irksome issues when the game finally launched last week. You could only install it on phones, and when you did, the list of permissions was a little bonkers. Well, both of those points have been addressed in a new update.

Contra: Evolution can now be installed on virtually any Android device. It was a little bizarre that it didn't allow tablet installations seeing as a number of the phones it supported were higher resolution than some tablets.

Anyone who played video games in the late 80s and early 90s probably lost at least one frustrating afternoon to the original Contra. This run-and-gun shooter was the archetype for innumerable games that were to follow. Now Contra has been spruced up and deployed in Google Play to taunt you all over again.

For anyone who hasn't experienced Contra, it's a (mostly) side-scrolling shooter with a ton of power ups and no mercy whatsoever.

I love classic arcade shooters! Neon graphics, fast moving foes, and chirpy sound effects. That style takes me back to the days of playing Asteroid or Galaga on massive cabinets, where reflexes and planning were fundamental and a quarter only bought 3 lives. Spikepit Games brings some of that feeling back with Plasma Sky, but you can keep the change in your pocket.

Like other entries in the Shmup (Shoot'em Up) category, you are in control of a gunship as it battles through an army of oncoming foes.
