[New Game] Line Of Defense Tactics, A Real-Time Strategy Game Spawned From An MMO, Launches For Android And Other Platforms

If we've learned anything from World of Warcraft, it's that strategy games and MMOs go hand in hand. Blizzard's role-playing game has been consuming lives for over a decade now, but it began as an RTS that was arguably every bit as engrossing. Line of Defense is taking a different approach. This MMO has now spawned a tactics game available for Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, and, yes, Android - all on the same day.

Line of Defense Tactics is based on the universe established in the MMO (actually, it's based on the comics that spawned from the game, but that's neither here nor there).

[New Game] Those Raving Rabbids Make Their Android Gaming Debut In The Physics-Based Title 'Rabbids Big Bang'

When the Rabbids first appeared in Rayman Raving Rabbids for the Wii back in 2006, they were hilarious and even somewhat charming. There wasn't any depth to them, but there wasn't any depth to the game itself, so it was a perfect fit. Those obnoxious bunnies went on to shed their affiliation with Rayman and have since appeared in more games than their limbless friend. Now they're making their mobile debut with Rabbids Big Bang.

Rabbids Big Band - ugh, Big Gang, no, Big Bang is a physics-based game where you manipulate the now space-faring Rabbids with your finger tips, keeping them from launching off into the emptiness of space as they're drawn to planets Super Mario Galaxy-style.

[New Game] Warner Bros. Releases GRAVITY: DON'T LET GO For Android, Lets Gamers Play Out The Movie Trailer Experience

Game developers have launched players into the abyss of space since they first learned how to manipulate pixels, but very few titles offer us the chance to simulate life as a modern day astronaut. Sure, GRAVITY: DON'T LET GO is purely intended to draw interest in the upcoming film Gravity starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, but it still offers one of the relatively few chances to float around present day spacecraft that gamers have.

If you haven't already seen the trailer for Gravity, here's the gist - things go horribly wrong. Satellite debris crashes into a space shuttle, sending an astronaut hurtling through space desperately trying to free herself from the damaged mechanical arm she's attached to.

Galaxy on Fire 2 HD Rockets Into Google Play, Brings Updated Graphics And Content With No Tegra Exclusivity

Galaxy on Fire 2 THD is a popular free-to-play title on Tegra devices, but it's only for Tegra. That's a bummer for the overwhelming majority of Android users. But what's this? At long last, Galaxy on Fire HD is in Google Play and it works on almost all Android devices.

Pixel Fleet Live Wallpaper Wages War On Your Home Screen

The Pixel Fleet live wallpaper gives you a reason to visit your home screen besides switching between apps. There's a war being waged out there, and you get a front row seat. Lasers will be fired, lives will be lost, and explosions will brighten the sky. There's a lot of entertainment here for a download that looks like a game and smells like a game, but isn't.

Pixel Fleet pits two factions against each other. The ships will fly around your home screen, firing at will until they each succumb to enemy fire or crumble under the weight of your own double-tap.

[New Game] Planets Defense Lands On The Play Store, Reminds You Of How Much We Want StarCraft

There is no denying that real-time strategy games are a hard nut to crack on mobile devices. It's tough to fit all of the intricate play mechanics, complicated strategy, and extensive storyline into a touchscreen. Planets Defense does a great job of making the controls work for high-speed gameplay and micro-management, but it still isn't quite a fully realized strategy experience. All things considered, it's still lot of fun and one of the best efforts I've seen.

Imagine mixing together the artistic style and baser strategies of StarCraft with the simple command and combat of Galaxy Empire. As you might have guessed, the result is very familiar - it has been done several times in the past.

DJ Space Gets All Carl Sagan On Us, Lets You Create Music By Arranging Planets And Flying Through Space

Professional musicians, you are free to sit this one out. DJ space is probably not going to fill your needs. Unless you need to play god, turning the planets themselves into musical instruments as you conduct a cosmic electronic orchestra with naught but your fingertips. If that's something you've needed, then yes DJ space will serve your purposes quite nicely.

FL Studio this is not, however as the saying goes, "If you want to mix sweet tracks from scratch, you must first invent the universe." The app functions very similarly to Garage Band in that you select from pre-recorded loops of music and assemble them into tracks.

[New Game] Crumble Zone - A Beautiful, Colorful, Space Shooting, Alien Loving, Game - Arrives On Android

Crumble Zone has all the ingredients for a great action arcade game. Aliens? Check. Guns? Check. Great artwork? Check. Best of all, it just came out on Android and it's free!

So here's the deal: you're the alien, naturally, and you have to shoot down a load of meteorites and asteroids whilst rotating around a planet that you're trying to save. The more space rock you destroy, the higher your score.

Despite the simple premise, the game promises to keep you playing until your battery has run dry. If the graphics don't get your attention (they probably will), you'll still be busy beating your score or playing multiplayer mode, so if you tend to procrastinate a lot then watch out.

[New Game] Plasma Sky Delivers A Beautiful Space Shooter, Plus Lots And Lots Of Lasers

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. The standard fare of choreographed enemy waves and boss fights is backed by a familiar old-school techno beat, and collectable power-ups improve the ship's guns and grant special advantages like slowing enemies to a crawl.

[New Game] Astro Shark HD Takes A Bite Out Of The Play Store

What happens in the unlikely event that a shark falls in love with a space dog? Clearly, the shark will follow the dog into space, because blast your logic! If Astro Shark is going to be reunited with Laika the space dog, he's going to have to dodge some missiles and travel the stars. Romantic, no?

Astro Shark is a physics-fueled adventure game that involves hopping from one planet to the next to gain speed and evade missiles. Along the way you are awarded stars for pulling off various stunts and accomplishing objectives. There are also a number of cinematic sequences that expand on the story line, if that's your thing.
