Howrse-Thumb

I grew up in the sticks, and while I've heard most words in the English language butchered in at least three different ways, I've never heard anyone pronounce horse remotely like Howrse. Even after acknowledging that the Howrse community has been around since 2005, it's hard for me to imagine an origin for this name that didn't involve making a typo and sticking with it.

But at this point, what does it matter?

Yarr, matey. Are ye ready to set sail for adventure and plunder on the waves? Assassin's Creed Pirates has arrived on Android as promised, and it's brimming with high seas adventure and impressive visuals.

You play a pirate captain searching for fame and fortune in the hulls of defeated enemies. The first vessel under your command is a modest one, but being a successful pirate will let you move up in the world.

Everybody loves proprietary gaming platforms that make you sign in to play Far Cry, right? Hello? Well they're here to stay, whether you like them or not (thanks EA, Microsoft, Valve, and the rest of 'em) and Ubisoft is trying to make its proprietary service a little less awful with the official Uplay app. It's available now to gamers on the Play Store.

Give Ubi some credit: at least the app looks good.

The original Rayman Jungle Run was one of our favorite games of last year, and easily in the top tier of running and platforming games available on Android. That title was a mobile tie-in to the Rayman Origins console game, and now that Rayman Legends is out, Ubisoft is back for another mobile installment. Rayman Fiesta Run builds on the original with new levels, new powers, and new gameplay elements.

Autodance-Thumb

As an introvert with no sense of rhythm, I'm situated decidedly outside of the target demographic for the Just Dance series (or, perhaps, that could make me exactly the consumer they're aiming for). But given how much money Ubisoft has made since it first released the original title for the Wii, I understand why the company ports the series to any device that could possibly be used as a dance aid.

PrinceOfPersia-Thumb

No one can keep the Prince of Persia down. The franchise has been around for over two decades, and the original entry was one of gaming's most influential releases. Now the Prince is back on Android in Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame, and this title picks up right where Prince of Persia Classic left off.

This is a full-blown 2.5D platformer with fourteen fully-rendered levels set around five different environments.

Nintendo DS games making their way to the Play Store? I could get used to this. Publisher UbiSoft and port developer Tag Games have just released Might & Magic Clash of Heroes, a 2009 entry in the venerable Might & Magic RPG series originally made for the DS. It's been re-released as a downloadable title on the Xbox, Playstation, PC, and (of course) iOS, but this one only took five months to jump ship to Android, so let's not hold too much of a grudge.

Mobile companion apps for AAA PC and console titles have become popular in the last few months: see companions for Call of Duty and FIFA 2013 for examples. Ubisoft's Far Cry 3 is a surprisingly excellent addition to the shooter franchise, and it offers a companion app for its multiplayer component. But what makes this one different is that it includes more than the standard social/organization elements: playing the Outpost app can score equipment and upgrades for the main game.

For everyone who was a deeply saddened, disappointed, or otherwise frustrated at the delayed launch of Ubisoft's Rayman Jungle Run, time to perk up. Wipe away those tears, oh dearest Rayman fan - the title is now official in the Play Store.

This side-scrolling platformer should be a nice throwback to old-school Rayman lovers, as it offers the same colorful scenery and gameplay style, along with new worlds and powers, supposedly-intuitive touch controls, and of course, everyone's favorite limbless little man.

A couple weeks ago, Ubisoft released a refreshed version of the old-school classic Prince of Persia. Since then, we've spent some time checking out this upgraded title and have a few words to share. Much like the Beach Buggy Blitz review, this one will be handled in the video format.

Without further ado, here's a look at Prince of Persia.
