Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got a frontier version of Sim City, another toy-flavored defense game from Chillingo, an 8-bit falling game, and a Breakout clone that spends too much time on the Internet.

SNK's Metal Slug series is one of the most beloved 2D side-scrolling shooters of all time, right up there with Contra. And fans of the originals were no doubt pleased when the twitchy, skillful, and delightfully pixelated games made their way to Android. So for the series' first foray into a new mobile title, it's only natural that SNK Playmore would make... a tower defense game.

Yeah, this ain't your daddy's Metal Slug.

The Anomaly series has some of the most polished, high-quality games on any mobile platform, and the next entry looks like no exception. While Anomaly: Warzone Earth, Anomaly Korea, and Anomaly 2 were all "tower offense" games (where you control a convoy of tanks and other vehicles being attacked by turrets), Anomaly Defenders goes for the more conventional tower-based approach.

But there's still a twist: this time you're playing for the alien side, fighting back against fascist human invaders.

You could almost guess Castle Doombad is an Adult Swim title without being told. Adult Swim has a very distinct, delightfully diabolical style to its mobile games, and this one is no exception. Castle Doombad contains devious traps, a kidnapped princess, and an evil super villain. However, you are the super villain who kidnapped the princess and stuck her in the dungeon guarded by traps. How's that for a twist?
