Odd Bot Out Is An Adorable Little Platformer-Physics Puzzle Game Starring A Robot Reject

Physics games are thick on the ground on mobile platforms. And to be honest, Off Bot Out from developer Martin Magni doesn't seem to offer much in the way of new ideas... at least at the start. But building on the basic tools introduced in the first few levels and expanding on them with a surprisingly rich physics engine, the game gets much more complex very quickly. Before long Odd Bot Out becomes something that is, if not wholly unique, then certainly special.

The basic story is that you're a defective robot who's failed the height test - apparently your creators subscribe to the Irkin Armada school of meritocracy.

Ouya Reportedly Gets $10 Million Cash Injection From Chinese Retailer Alibaba

The Ouya raised $8.6 million on Kickstarter, and to its credit, the promised $99 Android-powered game console was delivered and works as described. The problem is that it just wasn't very good in the grand scheme of things. The outlook on Ouya hasn't been particularly positive, but maybe that's about to change. The Wall Street Journal reports that Chinese retail giant Alibaba has swooped in with a $10 million investment

Naughty Kitties Arrives On Android To Shoot Aliens, Play With Balls Of String

The name "Naughty Kitties" is not particularly descriptive. Is it some sort of game or a seedy strip club? It's a game this time, and actually a rather fun one. It bills itself as a combination of endless runner and tower defense, but it's more strategic than you might think.

Heroes Of Might And Magic III Lands On The Play Store: Tablet Tactics Costs $10

Way back in the bygone days of December 2014, we told you that mega-publisher Ubisoft was teaming up with the nostalgia specialists at DotEmu to bring the turn-based strategy classic Heroes of Might and Magic III to Android. Today they published the revived game in the Play Store, right on schedule (those DotEmu folks are pros, I tell ya). You can buy the game for $9.99 - pricey, but not unreasonable - for tablets and tablets only.

Spacetime Studios Says Development Of Arcane Battlegrounds, Battle Dragons, Dark Legends, Pocket Legends, And Star Legends Has Stopped

As a wise man once said, all good things must come to an end. (I'm fairly certain it was Captain Picard.) So it is with a handful of mobile RPGs and tower defense games from developer Spacetime Studios. In a post on the company's official forum, CEO Gary Gattis said that the games Arcane Battlegrounds, Battle Dragons, Dark Legends, Pocket Legends, and Star Legends will not be getting any future updates, including the standard weekly bonuses and seasonal events.

Arcane Legends, a more recent take on the free-to-play mobile MMO formula, is still receiving updates.

The games themselves will remain available, at least for the time being.

[Update: Back On Google Play] Players Directed To Amazon Appstore For Updated Version Of Doom-GLES (Now D-GLES) Following Google Play Takedown

Update: To the developer's surprise, Google has returned D-GLES to the Play Store. People who bought it in the past no longer need to send emails requesting updates, and those who have purchased the Amazon version will continue to get new releases going forward. The latest one adds support for Amazon Fire TV and the Fire TV Stick.
