The mere existence of a Humble Bundle app made it a little easier to sideload all those APK files, but the quality of the app was seriously lacking. Well, now it's all fixed up and out of beta. The v2.0 update to the Humble Bundle app brings a new design and easier access to all of your purchased content.
I know what you're thinking. "Isn't that the lame tower defense game that's vaguely related to Warhammer?" No, this is the other new-ish Warhammer game—the good one. Warhammer 40k: Carnage is a side-scrolling shooter filled with chainswords, jump packs, and all the other gear an Ultramarine needs to get by. It's usually a $7 game, but now it's down 70% to just $1.99.
You probably didn't wake up this morning thinking you need another endless runner in your life. I sure didn't. But if you're a Regular Show fan, then that alone may be enough reason to pay attention to Cartoon Network's latest Android game. If not, then maybe you will be enticed by the unicorns riding fast cars. I mean, why wouldn't you be?
Now that I've piqued your interest, let's go over the details (don't worry, this is an endless runner, so there really isn't much).
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 neon-tinted twitch racer, a charming endless runner, a duck with better-than-average flight capabilities, a classic board game, and a super-frustrating multitouch experience.
The Humble Mobile Bundle 6 was already a awesome with the likes of Threes! and Duet up for sale. As is the tradition, a slew of new titles has been added to sweeten the deal. If you aren't sure about paying money for all this great stuff, we've got 10 codes to hand out courtesy of the fine folks at Humble Bundle.
Strategy games are generally more thought-provoking affairs than your average platformer or shooter, but they're still usually packed with plenty of on-screen action to hold players' interest. King of Dragon Pass, which is now newly available for Android, is no such game. This title is more of an interactive novel, and while gamers will still encounter warfare here, it's presented in a much different form.
King of Dragon Pass began as a PC game in 1999 and followed the trials of a barbarian clan as it expanded into untamed lands.
When I was a kid, my dad used to tinker with model cars. As I got a bit older, he started buying them for me, as well; first, the simple snap-together kits, eventually moving up to ones that required glue, and then on to completely blank canvas vehicles that needed paint, glue, and everything in between. Those took some time, but there was a real sense of accomplishment when it was all finished (assuming everything went smoothly).
A long time ago in a galaxy far away, a wise old man once said, "let go your conscious self and act on instinct." Little did we know at the time Obi-wan was not just talking about using The Force, but about playing the game Duet. This title just came to Android as part of the Humble Mobile Bundle 6 last week, and a few days later it arrived in the Play Store.
Cartoon Network has released Time Tangle into the Play Store, another game based on the Adventure Time cartoon. Instead of skiing, players are now tasked with punching. Lots and lots of punching.
In Time Tangle, there really isn't much that players can't fix just by swinging their fists. It's not exactly the best message to send to children, but they're smart enough to know better, right? Besides, this game is all about punching cute things, so it's okay.
