[New Game] Rockpocalypse Comes To Android In A Sure Sign The Real Apocalypse Is Upon Us

Like all red-blooded American males, I spend my days sitting around thinking, "Man, I sure wish I could play a button-masher fighting game on my phone staring the one and only Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson." Today my prayers were answered in a totally extreme way. WWE has released Rockpocalypse, with The Rock himself punching and kicking his way through 18 levels of pain. Did I mention it's extreme? EXTREME!

This isn't a wrestling game, despite being published by WWE.

[New Game] PIKPOK's 'Into The Dead' Throws You Into The Middle Of The Zombie Apocalypse, And It's Absolutely Terrifying

You're cruising the skies in a helicopter, when tragedy strikes. The chopper goes down and everyone dies. Literally, everyone. Except you. You awake in a new world. A world filled with the undead... and they're everywhere. There's nothing to do but run. For your life.

That's essentially the tone set for Into the Dead, a new first-person endless runner that just hit the Play Store. The game is quite popular on the iOS side of things, and for good reason – it looks amazing.

[New Game] Uppercut Games' New Shooter, EPOCH, Shows Why Killer Robots Never Go Out Of Style

Cylons. The Terminator. Gort. Johnny 5. Science fiction seems more than a little obsessed with the idea of murderous automatons, and with good reason: it works. Newcomer developer Uppercut Games has taken the trope to mobile gaming with EPOCH, a post-apocalyptic shooter that does away with the humans altogether (to make room for more robots). The Unreal Engine powers this graphical beast, and it's available for $4.99 for all devices - or at least the ones that can handle it.

Glu Mobile's Frontline Commando: D-Day Arrives On Android's Shores For Free (With The Usual Catch)

Last week, we saw a teaser for Glu Mobile's newest game that plays off the horrors of war, Frontline Commando: D-Day. Today, it's landed on Android as a free-to-play cover-based shooter. Touting 145 missions "based on the actual beach landings," the game promises plenty of playtime for your money. What's that you say? The game is free? Well, about that.

In our last article, we mentioned (by way of an overly complicated Nazi analogy wrapped in a ridiculous satirized mockery of Eisenhower's speech to D-Day troops) that Glu said you could turn off in-app purchases.

[New Game] Desktop Favorite Magicka Comes To Android, Plays Nice With iOS (But Not With Smartphones)

For the last two years, the Magicka series of indie fantasy games have lit up the Steam charts. Their mix of traditional Diablo-style gameplay and tongue-in-cheek humor has made them a favorite, and enabled such nonsensical expansions as Magicka: Vietnam (where the four elemental mages put the hurt on pinko commies). Now publisher Paradox is bringing the series to mobile, with the typically self-referential subtitle Wizards of the Square Tablet. 

The monster-fighting action takes on a slightly simplified air in this 2D, sprite-based version of the game.

Gameloft Teases Upcoming Dungeon Hunter 4 With Very Pretty Video Trailer

The fourth incarnation of Gameloft's action-RPG Dungeon Hunter franchise is going to be coming out in the near future, but the developer is already priming the pump with a teaser trailer. Unlike some other pre-release trailers, this one actually includes gameplay footage. Take a gander.

It looks like the same kind of hack-and-slash gameplay from past editions of Dungeon Hunter at work here. There will still be an arena where you can do battle against other humans, but the main quest will surely be the meat of the experience.

MakerBot And OUYA Team Up To Let You 3D Print Your Own Console Case

We don't get to talk much about 3D printing here at Android Police because it's not a technology that's terribly mobile-focused (nor is it even that commonplace yet), but suffice to say, it's amazing. While this may not be about making prosthetic body parts, vehicles, or bikinis, MakerBot and OUYA are partnering to allow users to print their own enclosures for the hackable console. This may be the coolest way to customize a game system yet.
