If your worst nightmare is facing a shark while being helpless at sea then swimming as fast as you can only to be eaten by it, then you might be getting a bit of reverse revenge with this new VR game on Daydream. Or maybe your fears will get more solidified. But what's for sure is that you will be able to experience it all in a more immersive way than any movie scene.
In Hungry Shark, you play as the shark. That's right, you're the good guy here and you have to fight those terrifying jellyfish and nasty human divers. There are three different mission types like eating as much as you can, racing, and rescuing your shark friends, and they all take place in a 360-degree huge underwater setting where you're free to move, explore, and hunt.

About a month and a half ago Ubisoft announced that a Rabbids-themed game would be coming to Google Daydream in the Spring. Well, it looks like that day has arrived. The game is called Virtual Rabbids: The Big Plan and you can purchase it today for $5.99. Read More
Ubisoft has just announced a new Tom Clancy game for Android titled Tom Clancy's ShadowBreak. Something that has been noticeably absent from the Play Store, it was only a matter of time before Ubisoft brought the Tom Clancy series to mobile. From what I have seen, this looks to be an online multiplayer title that mixes sniper combat with Clash Royale lane-based combat — an odd mix for sure. Only time will tell if it pans out for them.

The name Prince of Persia should be familiar to many gamers. The series has been around a long time, seen many reboots and remasters, and platformed onto several... well, platforms. Chronologically set after Prince of Persia Classic, Shadow & Flame introduces some new combat and movement mechanics optimized for mobile. It is currently $0.10 in certain countries (yep, another one of those). Unfortunately for us United States fans, the U.S. is excluded from this sale. Read More
Even if you're a regular gamer, you might not know about Ketchapp. The publisher is only a couple of years old, and the games it posts to the Play Store and App Store are uniformly small, simple titles. But what it lacks in ambition it makes up for in volume: by my count there are no less than 75 Ketchapp games on the Play Store, an impressive accomplishment in a short amount of time. Ketchapp seems to have caught the eye of some industry heavy-hitters, because it's being acquired by Ubisoft, one of the biggest game publishers on the planet. Read More
Gameloft has been one of the most consistent (if not one of the most respected) game developers since the beginning of the mobile gaming boom, though the company began on consoles. Vivendi, an enormous French media empire with interests in music, movies, video games, and pretty much every other entertainment industry, is attempting a hostile stock takeover of Gameloft, according to Bloomberg. The larger company has already purchased over 30% of Gameloft's stock, and is now offering 6 euros a share for the remaining amount.
Gameloft began humbly, founded in Paris by former executives of Ubisoft. Gameloft was one of the only companies that made high-end games for the old iOS and Windows Mobile platforms. Read More
The last two Rayman games to grace Android, Rayman Jungle Run and Rayman Fiesta Run, are some of the best examples of the genre on the Play Store. Now the developers are branching out by bringing Rayman back to his platforming roots. The third game in the series, Rayman Adventures, allows for more direct control of the 2D characters as they run around the screen. That makes stages bigger and less linear, encouraging players to explore every nook and cranny. You know, like an adventure. Read More
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 super-realistic flight simulator, a super-unrealistic duck simulator, another Q*bert-style climber, an Adventure Time rhythm game, and an action-RPG from Ubisoft. Without further ado:
Avion Flight Simulator ™ 2015
You wouldn't think that many developers would be champing at the bit to do a realistic flight simulator on a mobile platform, but it's slowly becoming an established niche on Android. Read More
We're getting some really excellent games on Android as of late, and it looks like the hit parade isn't going to end in the near future. Here are three upcoming titles (in three different genres, no less) to look forward to in the next few months.
Rayman Jungle Run and Rayman Fiesta Run are easily two of the best games of their type on Android, and we're getting at least one more. Ubisoft released a reveal trailer for Rayman Adventures early this morning, showing off similar gameplay with a new structure based on rescuing the "Incrediballs." The tap-and-swipe runner gameplay seems to be intact, so I'm sorry if you were hoping for a more conventional platformer. Read More
