From May 24th to June 1st, a boatload of your favorite Android games will be going on sale in celebration of pricing freedom. Because We May, a coalition of game developers that is "preparing for launch," announced the sale recently, explaining that the purpose of the sale is to "celebrate online stores that give us control over pricing."

The stores involved include the iOS App Store, Mac App Store, Steam, Google Play, and a few others (including a "Direct from Developer" option).

Welcome to the weekly roundup of the best new Android applications, games, and live wallpapers that went live in the Market or were spotted by us in the previous 2 weeks or so.

This edition focuses only on new tablet apps or ones that added tablet support. Regular apps and games are coming soon.

Unfortunately, I could only find 4 tablet apps in almost a month, which makes me really sad.

We heard about it back in February, and now it looks like Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II is about to start rolling out. Those of you with Tegra 3 chips in your devices, get ready to have your SoCs rocked off*. Everyone else will be waiting for a little while. The gaming company's follow-up to Episode I of the same game will launch on Android tomorrow, for $6.99.

Update: The game is live.

If you were a child of the 80's or early 90's (and weren't some Nintendo fanboy, pft), the name Sonic probably has some deeper, almost religious meaning to you. I remember worshipping at the Genesis 16-bit altar for hours on end as a kid, and my deity of choice was the hedgehog in blue. Sonic. Sonic 2. Sonic 3. Sonic and Knuckles. Sonic CD (oh yeah). Screw Sonic 3D Blast, though.

If you haven't heard of Machinarium, you probably aren't much of a PC gamer. That's not mean to be some kind of "high and mighty" insult - it's just the truth. Machinarium is a small indie game that was released for PCs and Macs back in September of 2009, developed by Czech studio Amanita Design. It won numerous awards as indie game of the year, as well as accolades for its astounding artwork and soundtrack.

Way back in October, Artem and I got into a debate about the quality of Android's gaming scene. I was of the opinion that there were good gaming titles - not an abundance, but enough quality titles to keep me happy. Artem, on the other hand, was of the opinion that there were virtually no good games on Android. So we put it to you, our readers. The result: gaming on Android was good, not great.

Bringing an incredible art style and steampunk-inspired puzzling fun to Android today, Hothead Games released Machinarium to Google's Play Store.

Machinarium puts players in a "world of robots," requiring quick wit to solve puzzles, work through challenges, and complete various mini-games to help the protagonist Josef save his robotic girlfriend in the city.

If you're wondering why the game looks visually amazing, it's because the graphics are completely hand-drawn. The artistic style of Machinarium is undoubtedly impressive, and adds a ton to the overall experience.

Noodlecake Studios, the makers of Super Stickman Golf, have brought an interstellar racing experience to Android, recently releasing Lunar Racer to Google's Play Store.

Lunar Racer, which Noodlecake dubs "the next casual racing sensation," transports players to a variety of lunar locations (including 16 unique tracks)  where they can utilize missiles, mines, shields, thrusters, and nitro boosters to explode past the competition. It's worth noting that powerups are purchased with Moonbux, which are (abundantly) collectable during normal gameplay, or available for in-app purchase.

Racing games are nothing new on Android, but Mini Motor Racing has a fun look and feel you just don't see very often. In this game you're racing nitro-infused remote-controlled cars, and what could be cooler than that? Name one thing you would have wanted more as a kid. You can't, can you?

Mini Motor Racing has the kind of features you'd expect out of a racing game, like plenty of cars, spec upgrades, and multiple control schemes.
