In honor of its first full year distributing games on the Play Store, Square Enix has placed its most recent Final Fantasy release - Final Fantasy Dimensions - on sale for just $9.99, a savings of $10.
With an average rating of 4.4 stars and nearly 800 reviews, Dimensions is easily among Square Enix's best-reviewed titles on Android. Whether you're a Final Fantasy nut, or just love RPGs crafted in the old 2D style, this sale is definitely worth taking advantage of. Read More
If you're looking for something new in the stagnating world of tower defense, this is it. City Conquest turns the genre on its head, by forcing players to defend their own territory and attack others simultaneously, with a combination of real-time and turn-based gameplay. It's a bit hard to wrap your head around, but trust me, the experience is well worth the effort. City Conquest is a free download in the Play Store (ad-supported, no in-app purchases) for devices running Android 4.0 or later with a resolution of at least 960x720. Read More
There are a lot of Android users that don't much care for buying paid apps. This is doubly true since the old 24-hour return windows was replaced with a comparatively small 15-minute one. A company called Mobiroo seems to think it has the solution: subscribe to an all-you-can-download service for paid apps. It's a little bit like Netflix for apps, and it only costs $2.49 per-month. Of course, that's only a good deal if the service offers apps you actually want. Read More
Oh, Rovio, Rovio. Whatfore art thou doing, Rovio? The last few games the company has produced have not managed to regain the same amount of public attention that Angry Birds did. In fact, Bad Piggies only stayed in the top 20 by revenue spots for 5 weeks in the U.S. (iOS), compared to 22 months for Angry Birds. Perhaps it's no surprise, then, that the developers have fallen back on their old failsafe: making games for kids' CGI movies. Read More
Toy Story is probably one of the greatest digital films ever made. Kids enjoy the idea of toys coming to life when they aren't around, and adults get their share of subtle humor in the mix, too. Now the crew – Woody, Buzz, Rex, and more – are on your mobile device in a whimsical new game from Disney.
The game, dubbed Toy Story: Smash It! puts a familiar twist on a mobile mainstay: the 3D break-the-blocks puzzler. Read More
In our lifetime, there have been many great battles. Mario vs. Bowser. Vampires vs. Werewolves. Jason vs. Teenagers. Tyler Durden vs. Himself.
While those may be the tales that define this era, there is one that lays alone in the shadows, covered in blood, and with a dedication to violence: Alien vs. Predator. And now you can define the outcome with Fox Digital's new game, AVP: Evolution.
The Aliens, extra terrestrial beasts with a bloodlust only surpassed by their agility and speed, have been taken as slaves by the fearsome and technologically brutal Super Predators. Read More
Everyone's favorite game studio, Electronic Arts, has released the third incarnation of its "hyper-realistic" racing series. Real Racing 3 is in the Play Store, but appears to be available only in certain countries right now. The North American listing isn't working for us, but the international version appears to be functional for at least some folks. Although, considering the bizarre new in-app purchase upsell, maybe you're not missing much.
The Real Racing series makes its name by licensing dozens of authentic cars. Read More
Machinarium was one of my personal favorite games from 2012, and I've wanted to replay it for months now. Unfortunately, the Nexus 7 is my primary gaming device, and Machinarium hasn't been available for it since its release. Finally, after months of waiting (and numerous attempts to contact Hothead Games), Machinarium is officially available on the Nexus 7 thanks to an update today.
That may not be the only new device added to the fold, though – Hothead didn't update the changelog, so it's hard to say what else the update brings along with it. Read More
If you're the kind of fan that absolutely must have a Star Wars version of everything in your life, then grab your officially licensed Ahsoka Tano phone case and head for the Play Store. Zen Studios, makers of the well-received Zen Pinball HD, have released their Star Wars-themed pinball app, creatively titled Star Wars Pinball. It's a reasonable $1.99, but unfortunately restricted to Android 4.0 devices and above, and thus tragically off-limits to the Special Edition R2-DROID2. Read More
Google's no stranger to using web technologies to do cool, innovative things. In fact, some would say that over the last few years the company has pushed (or broken) the barriers of what a web browser is, and can be – just look at ChromeOS, for example. It's an entire OS based on the idea that you can live your digital life inside of a web browser. The thought itself is bold, but the execution could be game-changing as the OS grows and becomes more polished. Read More
