Let's travel back in time together. Free your mind, and journey back with me, if you will. It's the sixth of April, two-thousand and twelve. One of the most anticipated games in recent months has just been announced: Max Payne Mobile. The crowd roars.

The game was expected to hit the Play Store on April 26th. We all waited with baited breath, but it never happened. So far as Android is concerned, everything goes dark.

There aren't enough 8-bit adventure games in the world. This is just one of those facts of life you learn to deal with growing up. Thankfully, there are still a few devotees to the genre, like Nostatic Software. The developer has released a delightfully colorful 8-bit adventure game about a young girl with the world's most sensitive ears who just wants everyone in the house to be quiet for a bit so she can go to sleep.

Over a year ago, Adult Swim released their first Android game, Robot Unicorn Attack. Now they're back with another ridiculous(ly awesome?) game called Monsters Ate My Condo. Unfortunately there's no video footage of the gameplay, but I think the Play Store banner probably sums it up well:

The core gameplay is simple and nothing especially new: swipe the floors around to match the colors. It's the premise that kicks things up a notch:

EA has a tried-and-true formula for the Need For Speed (NFS) series: fast cars, good graphics, a cheesy story, and some good old arcade-style racing. Thus it's no surprise that the latest NFS title, Most Wanted (a follow up to the 2008 original) features just that - and as always, it looks like a properly good time:

The game will be coming to all the major platforms - Xbox 360, PS3, Vita, PC, iOS, and Android - so it's unclear how much the press release and trailer pertain to Android.

With the arrival of a new monthly roundup of apps comes a roundup of our six favorite games. May 2012 saw the addition of a slew of worthy games to the Play Store, but naturally a few stood out above the rest. In this roundup, we'll briefly discuss what we consider to be the top six games released in May of 2012.

Machinarium, which we both announced and reviewed last month, was a no-brainer for inclusion in the monthly game roundup.

With E3 well underway, mobile developer Gameloft has let loose a salvo of new titles it'll be unveiling at the conference today. These include: Asphalt 7: Heat, The Amazing Spider-Man, Kingdoms & Lords, and Cosmic Colony.

Asphalt 7: Heat

Asphalt 7 is the latest in the iteration in Gameloft's long-running racing franchise, though it appears the gameplay has remained largely unchanged (read: racing games on phones still aren't very good), while graphics and the choice of vehicles have been noticeably stepped up.

NVIDIA has been working hard to bring a console-like gaming experience to portable device that feature the Tegra 3 superchip. Shadowgun was the first title to really break that barrier, and the experience has only gotten better since then. Games like Dark Meadow and Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II now set the standard - and that's a high bar to reach in the mobile space.

Today, though, NVIDIA has taken the wraps off of five all-new Tegra Zone games designed specifically for the 4-plus-1 core Tegra 3 processor: Dead Trigger, Puddle THD, Demons' Score THD, Bounty Arms, and Heroes Call.

Nyko, best known for making the slightly less solid and slightly less expensive console controllers you buy to save money, is getting into the Android game. Literally. Working with mobile gaming force of nature, NVIDIA, the peripherals company aims to bring "physical and familiar controls" to tablet games that run on NVIDIA processors, including, but more importantly not limited to, the Tegra 3.
