[New Game] PlayStation Port Zombie Tycoon 2 Is The First SHIELD-Only Android Game To Hit The Play Store

Zombie games are more played out than Star Wars at this point, but combining them with new and interesting genres is a way to get my attention. Thus we have Zombie Tycoon 2, the latest game to jump from the PlayStation 3/Vita to Android. But this one is unique: in keeping with its console gaming roots, Zombie Tycoon 2 requires a controller to play. That officially makes this the first SHIELD-exclusive title for the time being.

[New Game] Dig Out Your Plastic Monster Toys: Activision Unleashes Skylanders Battlegrounds Onto The Google Play Store

For the uninitiated, Skylanders is a series of kid's video games that use collectible (read: expensive) real-world toys to unlock and enhance the power of the digital characters. The games have been smash hits on consoles, but so far Activision's only concession to the Play Store has been Cloud Patrol, a basic turret shooter that leaves a lot to be desired. The new Skylanders Battlegrounds, a more conventional action-RPG, should make much better use of the property.

[New Game] Rubicon's Combat Monsters Mixes Card Games, Multiplayer Turn-Based Strategy, And Fantastic Theme Songs

This is the part of the gaming post where I establish a little context. Maybe I tell you how a particular genre is doing on Android, or how well this developer's previous games have been received. I could do that, but I won't, because the theme song in the trailer for Combat Monsters is kind of blowing my mind. It's easily worthy of a 1980s cartoon sponsored by Hasbro.

Rubicon is the developer of the extremely solid Great Little War Game series, and Combat Monsters doesn't stray too far out of their wheelhouse.

Star Command Review: A Solid (But Short) Tribute To Star Trek And Kairosoft

Star Command is one of my most-anticipated games for Android. Or at least it was, two years ago when it was scheduled to be released, and then again when it was released for iOS five months ago. An unreasonably long development cycle and some dodgy developer antics have made waiting for this game an exercise in frustration, and it's impossible to give it a full review without at least some bitterness hanging on in the back of my mind.

[New Game] Hero Academy Calls On You And Your Friends To Face Off In Addictive Turn-Based Combat

Hero Academy is a charming and addictive turn-based strategy game made by people who know a thing or two about strategy games. It may not look like it, but some of the folks behind Hero Academy have worked on the likes of Age of Empires and Halo Wars. This game has brought in such accolades as a 2013 Mobile Game of the Year D.I.C.E award and a near perfect rating on the Apple App Store.
