There's bad news for those of you who were hoping to play Bioware's classic PC dungeon crawler Baldur's Gate on your tablets. The Enhanced Edition has been removed from Apple's iOS App Store, making new purchases impossible. That doesn't mean a lot for Android gamers, but the reasons behind this move have implications for the Android launch. According to the official game website, the publisher insisted that the game be pulled based on a "contractual issue." Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition for Android is now on hold.
People first played Scribblenauts on the Nintendo DS and declared: It was good. The series was then ported to consoles, the PC, iOS, and Android via the Amazon Appstore, and it was good. But there was a problem, who uses the Amazon Appstore? While people scratched their heads and terrorized the town in search of such a person, Scribblenauts Remix made its way into the Play Store. And lo, it was still good.
You've made it halfway through the week, but it's the last few days that are always a killer. Why not kick back and relax today with some new apps and games? You don't even have to spend a lot of dough – we've got some sales to help you out. There is so much on sale today.
If you're just dying to try out Verizon's much-hyped augmented reality game fashioned after the company's DROID advertisements... well, then you've probably got some very strange tastes. The @DroidLanding Twitter account was re-activated yesterday after its usual inter-device slumber as a precursor to this game. We don't know when they'll make a formal announcement (though a dormant Play Store page has already landed) but you can download the APK and try it now if you like.
Frozen Synapse is a turn-based tactical strategy game designed especially for tablets. It debuted in the Humble Bundle yesterday, but was only exclusive for a few hours. The game has now hit Google Play, but the price serves to illustrate how amazing the Humble Bundle truly is.
This indie game has garnered high praise from reviewers. Frozen Synapse comes with 55 single-player missions and cross-platform multiplayer with multiple game modes. The visuals look very interesting – like a virtual reality game seen from above.
Hero of Many is a side-scrolling game featuring that silhouette style that so many indie games love these days. You play as a glowing nucleus of energy, leading a "swarm of water beings" around, fighting bad, black water thingies. They are definitely not sperm cells.
The game is played with no words, which is not a romantic metaphor. Your nucleus collects new pieces and expands, which is not a visual representation of a growth cycle.
We like to keep an eye out for deals, and there is nothing more consistently wallet-friendly than the Humble Bundle. Not only can you get a killer deal, it's charity so you can feel good about spending the money, too. Humble Bundle With Android 6 has arrived with more cross-platform games that will work on your Android device.
This time the assortment of games looks better than ever. Pay any price and you get Pulse, Stealth Bastard Deluxe, Organ Trail (note the spelling), Fractal, and Aquaria.

Just in time for Father's day, we've found even more apps and games to keep you (and those close to you on Dad's day) glued to your respective mobile devices all weekend. As usual, we'll keep the list up-to-date as we discover more sales!
