Gameloft's shooter magnum opus is getting a big update today. If you've purchased Modern Combat 4, head to the Play Store to start the download for the Meltdown update - it's free. Those who haven't bought MC4 can get it with a new purchase. The update is fairly typical for a high-profile first-person shooter: new maps, new weapons, and a new specialization class. But what will probably excite fans of the game most are two new multiplayer modes.
Humble Bundle With Android 6 was already a good deal before, as it offered seven games, five of which were debuting on Android for the first time. Now, three additional titles are joining the ranks. Those who have already bought the bundle will see McPixel, Waking Mars, and NightSky appear in their Humble Bundle libraries automatically. Those who haven't yet bought the bundle just have to pay over the average price paid thus far, which has yet to exceed $5.
This edition focuses only on new games. The app roundup is coming up soon.

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Tag Games have just released Might & Magic Clash of Heroes, a 2009 entry in the venerable Might & Magic RPG series originally made for the DS.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.
Do you like a good mystery? Then perhaps you ought to take on the role of Joe the janitor in the newly released The Silent Age. It's a point-and-click adventure where one lowly 70's janitor is tasked with finding out why everyone in the future is dead. Of course, Joe's future is our present. Yep, we're all dead.
Joe has a handy time travel device he was gifted by a dying man.
Crescent Moon games has offered up some great games like Slingshot Racing, Ravensword, and Paper Monsters in the past. Now it has released an interesting casual (kind of) racer called Redline Rush, and you can check it out for free.
This is not a traditional racing game – it's a bit more like Beach Buggy Blitz or Temple Run than it is like Need for Speed. You maneuver your car around the traffic, police roadblocks, and other dangers to collect coins and power ups.
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 an unfashionably late Batman game, a giddy throwback to beat-em-ups of yore, a 2D top-down shooter (minus the shooting), and a couple of free demos for Kairosoft's pixelated favorites.
If you haven't played Gangstar Rio, it's basically Gameloft's attempt to recreate a popular existing franchise. That describes about 95% of Gameloft's app library (I'll stop teasing them when they start having ideas of their own), but in this case, it's a riff on Grand Theft Auto, Saints Row, and the rest of the open-world crime genre. The sequel, Gangstar Vegas, was just published in the Play Store. Seven bucks gets you a bigger, better crime simulator, assuming your device is compatible and you've got a whopping 2.5GB of free space.
It's a little late in the day, but there are still deals to be had. Yesterday was a killer day for app sales, but today has a nice assortment too. Let's see what we have.
