Spacetime Studios, creator of hit game Pocket Legends, has released a new MMO for those of you who want to role play on the go: Dark Legends. In this vampire-themed game, you play as a demon of the night on the run as the world of humans has suddenly figured out that vampires are real. Apparently, in this world, smashing trucks, killing wildlife, and large-scale battles with wolves will inevitably end up on YouTube.
Bringing the "world's best-selling Football management game" to Android users everywhere, SEGA recently introduced Football Manager Handheld 2012 to the Play Store recently, giving players the opportunity to "take the hot-seat at any club" including leagues in 12 countries (across several continents), with full control over team management from training to tactics to live management during matchdays.
Besides offering a lengthy career mode in which players can experience a full career in a given country's league, Football Manager Handheld 2012 allows for quick play via Challenge Mode, in which players will complete "a particular short-term scenario with a clear goal to be achieved."
The game utilizes Sports Interactive's "huge global scouting network" for accurate real-life research, offering players realistic situations with actual players.
It appears that Linux Tycoon, "the world's premier 'Linux Distribution Building Simulation Game'," will be gaining online play soon, and (more importantly) is officially headed for Android (and iOS).
In a blog post earlier today, Lunduke announced both of these exciting developments, and explained just how the game's new online capabilities will work: the mind behind "the nerdiest MMO ever conceived" will be releasing Linux Tycoon Server, allowing players to run their own "world" for online play separate from the official server, and also allowing for customization of the play experience including gameplay settings and Package lists.
I know, I know, who wants to hear about yet another tower defense game? Actually, I do - I still find this genre to be one of the most enjoyable on a mobile device and pretty much the only one that can keep me interested for longer than a day (I've been playing Com2uS' Tower Defens: Lost Earth nonstop for the last few days). And you might too, when you see the video of Hexage's upcoming title, Radiant Defense.
Mobile gaming is really great. It's just that it can be such a solitary experience as you're hunched over your device, the light casting an unattractive pallor on your face. But don't worry; the classic Amiga shooter Battle Squadron ONE from Cope-Com just landed in the Google Play Store, and it aims to make your gaming sessions a more social experience.
In Battle Squadron ONE, two players can take the fight to enemy forces in a top-down scrolling shooter.
Bomberman vs Zombies by Contlex Labs, which spent "24 weeks in the list of top 10 BlackBerry games," has come to Android, bringing endless zombies and explosions to the palm of your hand.
BvZ should look extremely familiar to fans of Bomberman, or those who remember the rendition we saw a few months ago for Android, but Contlex's creation offers clean, pleasing graphics which can be enjoyed on smartphones and tablets alike, and a somewhat unique gameplay dynamic.
We've all played some sort of music rhythm game before - be it Guitar Hero, Rock Band, or Tap Tap Revenge. While only one of those was actually meant to be played on a touchscreen device, it still left something to be desired. Enter a new music rhythm game that not only looks fantastic, but actually makes sense to play: Cytus.
Cytus was originally for iOS devices and has now made its way to Android.
Four months ago, Rockstar games brought one of the most iconic video game titles of all time to Android devices: Grand Theft Auto III. With that, came car theft, trashy hookers, shady criminals, and enough violence to satisfy even the most brutal among us. Fast-forward to today, and Rockstar has announced the release date for yet another iconic title: Max Payne.
Screenshots from the iOS version
The crime-laden world of vigilante cop Max Payne will be landing on iOS devices on April 12th, with an Android release just two weeks later, on April 26th.
This edition focuses only on new games. The app roundup is coming up soon.

You may be familiar with Com2uS from popular titles like Homerun Battle 3D and Slice It. Well, the developer's newest effort comes into a genre that is already more than adequately represented with Tower Defense: Lost Earth. This game is free to download, but as most of Com2uS' games lately have, it relies on in-app purchases to milk you for cash over time.
You're probably familiar with the idea of a tower defense game.
