The trains are running like clockwork today with the release of Transport Tycoon exactly as promised last month. This touch-friendly update of the classic PC simulation title gives you the opportunity to become the transit baron you always knew you could be. All it takes is $6.99 to get started.

Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix.

Sir! I'd Like To Report A Bug! takes its inspiration from games of a bygone era. No, this isn't merely a modern game masked with pixelated faux 16-bit visuals. This is a title that seeks to replicate the agony of the early 90s, a time when bugs weren't a reason to return a game. Instead they added another layer of challenge, another set of rules to be studied, learned, and mastered.
Japan loves vending machines. You know those machines with iPods and Bose headphones at the airport? Japan had them first, among, many, many others, including machines for liquor, live bait, produce, Pokemon, and various other slightly insane things.
