Epic Action RPG Aralon: Sword And Shadow Is Now Out On The Play Store

After a several-month-long stint on the Amazon Appstore (and an even longer one on iOS), epic open world RPG Aralon: Sword and Shadow is finally on the Play Store. The title is by Crescent Moon Games, the team also responsible for the decidedly less hack-and-slashy Paper Monsters.

Aralon promises 30 hours of story-infused action, with four character classes and three races to choose from. Visually, it looks like a mashup of Neverwinter Nights and The Elder Scrolls, which certainly adds to the appeal.

[New Game] Rebellion's 'Guns 4 Hire' Brings The Pain... And Guns, Tanks, And Bombs, Too

Against all odds, Rebellion's first title – Judge Dredd vs. Zombies – was actually a solid game. Its top-down shoot-em-up style is always a fun choice, and, let's be honest, it's hard to go wrong with zombies. So, take note game devs: if you have a good idea that's missing that special something, it's zombies. Just add zombies.

But, back to Rebellion. These guys just released a new game to the Play Store called Guns 4 Hire, and while it doesn't have anything to do with zombies, there's no shortage of bullet-blasting action.

[New Game] Shapes & Sound Brings Style And Surprising Depth To Asteroids-Type Shooters

With its monochromatic palette and tinkly music, you might confuse Shapes & Sound for a "chill" game. Not so: it's inspired by the twitchy vector shooters of yore, like Asteroids and Tempest. But while those titles offered no more complexity than a rising difficulty curve, Shapes & Sound combines some simple yet appealing graphics with deep gameplay.

The core of the game is simple: tap around your shape to shoot at those flying towards you.

[New Game] EA Releases The Simpsons: Tapped Out, AKA Sim City Springfield, Everywhere Except The US [Update]

Good Lord, The Simpsons has been on the air for twenty-four years. There's nothing that America's animated nuclear family can do on TV that they haven't done before. Maybe that's why Fox seems to insist upon thrusting them into other mediums, most notably video games. The latest destination for the jaundiced citizens of Springfield is The Simpsons: Tapped Out, a shameless ripoff loving homage to the city building genre typified by Sim City.

OpenFeint Co-Founder's OpenKit Launches In Private Beta Today, Promises Ubiquitous Game Save And Backup Services

If you've spent any time gaming on Android, you probably remember OpenFeint. Nearly every major game integrated it in some way, usually allowing players to log in with a single username, collect achievements, and post scores to a global leaderboard. It was handy for what it did, but if you didn't care about competing, it felt a lot like obnoxious spamware. Unsurprisingly, it closed down in December of last year. Today, however, it's being sort of reborn as OpenKit, a project headed by one of the co-founders of the original service.

GameStick Kickstarter Comes To A Very Successful Close With 648% Funding

GameStick, the Kickstarter project that promises to "put big screen gaming in your pocket," has seen controversies, redesigns, and other fun things during its 30 day funding period; but alas, that time has come to an end and now there's work to be done. Lots of work, in fact – the funding was met with incredible fervor, with the project closing at 648% of the original $100,000 goal.

As mentioned earlier, the design you see above is far from the final look of GameStick, which underwent a full redesign close to the end of the campaign.

Because No Games Are Better Than Crappy Games: Zeboyd Calls It Quits On Android

Though you may not have heard of them, Zeboyd Games is something of a darling in the world of indie gaming. After scoring hits with the quirky neo-retro RPGs Cthulhu Saves The World and Breath Of Death VII, the two-man studio made it big by landing a contract with webcomic giant Penny Arcade. The third game in the series, On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness III, abandoned the 3D style of the previous entries for a sprite-based, pixelated throwback to 16-bit gaming goodness.

[New Game] Cubes Vs. Spheres Brings A Grand Geometric Struggle To Your Android Device

Minecraft Pocket Edition Updated To v0.6, Brings New Blocks, A Better Sky, Signs, And Awwww! Baby Animals!

Mojang may have a mortal fear of giving releases full version numbers, but that hasn't stopped the company from cranking out new features like mad. Today's update brings a slew of new blocks (including Nether Brick, Block of Quartz, and Sandstone), as well as the ability to build staircases in corners. Oh, and one other thing: the sky finally has clouds now.

The new goodies don't stop there, though. Gravity is also finally in full swing, so now things like sand will fall when the foundations beneath them are removed.
