[New Game] Arma Tactics THD Brings Top-Down, Turn-Based Military Strategy To Tegra Devices

Armchair generals, take note: tactical games are making a comeback. This top-down micromanaging genre was once dominated by the likes of Shining Force, Tactics Ogre, and Final Fantasy Tactics (and just recently by XCOM: Enemy Unknown) but it's surprisingly perfect for touchscreen devices; see the Great Little War Game series. The ARMA series is known for painstakingly realistic shooters, but it's stepping back for Arma Tactics THD to give the player a bird's eye view of the battlefield.

ShaqDown Available For Free For A Limited Time, Though We're Not Sure How It Will Become Paid Again

Back in the early 1990s, Shaquille O'Neal was one of the largest players in the NBA, and the country could not get enough of him. He released a few albums, starred in a few movies, and even appeared in his own fighting game for the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo. That title, Shaq Fu, released to instantaneous infamy.

This is an arcade-style action game based on the classic franchise. In this title you must blast your way through waves of bad guys in a post-apocalyptic wasteland to reach Captain Nucleo's nuclear-equipped hovercraft.
