The titular beach bum in Beach God doesn't have a name, but he looks like a Chad. I'm going to call him Chad. Chad is hoping to impress the voluptuous ladies strolling past his tiki bar, using the time-honored technique of flexing his biceps and pectorals. His motivation might not be entirely lust-driven, because if just one of the ladies passes him when he's not flexing, he literally dies of embarrassment.
While I don't consider myself a hardcore gamer, I do tend to get quickly addicted to casual math games. Give me a set of numbers, some form of logic problem to solve in a few seconds or more, and I can start round after round, often resulting in hours of continuous play.

Say, do you like racing? Do you like spaceships? Do you like... dubstep? Then how about a game where spaceships race with a dubstep soundtrack, and also shoot at each other? If that sounds good, Flashout 2 is waiting for your money.
Are you ready to fight for the Imperium? Well, now you can with the new Warhammer 40k: Storm of Vengeance on Android. This game has all the pieces of Warhammer – space marines, big explosions, and so on. Though, the gameplay isn't what fans were expecting. This is a "lane-based strategy" game.

The seas are beautiful and deadly in Chillingo's new game Abyss Attack. All the creatures in the deep are out to get you, and all you have for defense is a heavily armed submersible. Although, you are sort of shooting everything in sight. It's possible the luminous sea life is just defending itself, you monster.
This is a top-down scrolling shooter with an array of glowing creatures, some of which can fire projectiles, and others that simply try to swarm you.
The latest Humble Bundle was already a great deal with the likes of The Room Two and Carcassonne up for grabs. We knew more titles were coming, and here they are. The Humble Bundle blog now lists Paper Monsters, R-Type, and Enviro-Bear 2010 as part of the Humble Mobile Bundle 5.
All three titles are in the locked tier that you only get for paying over the average. As of right now, that is at $5.14, but it's only going to go up the longer you wait.
The week is just starting, but the app sales are already going strong. I could talk to you all day about the virtues of buying apps and games on sale and being a thrifty consumer, but then some of the sales might be over. There are a ton of deals, so let's just get to it.
