Zynga, creators of the ever-popular Words With Friends, have just made Hanging With Friends available to Android users in the U.S. following its global release. The game is Zynga's twist on the children's game Hang Man, but it is not as gruesome as it sounds. The game features "cute characters in perilous situations," by which I mean adorable, doe-eyed cartoons hanging on to balloons suspended in mid-air over a pool of lava.

Gameloft, one of the biggest names in mobile gaming, is holding a back-to-school sale that cuts the prices of three of its most popular games for Android down to a manageable $0.99.

First in line for a price cut is Backstab HD, an action game with beautiful environments that's been compared to Uncharted and Assassin's Creed which had its debut in July.

Next is N.O.V.A. 2 HD, a sci-fi style FPS title first released back in June with highly detailed maps, multiplayer support, and a healthy amount of shooting action.

Hexage has decided to update their popular retro-style Pacman-esque game EVAC (and EVAC HD) with some new levels and more importantly release it for free! Our esteemed editor reviewed the game some time back and he was particularly impressed by its "magical" soundtrack.

According to Droid Gamers, both versions of EVAC are completely free and contain no ads whatsoever. It seems as though Hexage has decided to adopt a freemium model whereby they will offer in-game purchases that can be used to pass difficult levels, extend the number of lives, and obtain longer lasting power-ups.

Infinite Dreams, the creators of such hits as Sky Force and Shoot The Birds, are famous for high quality and absolutely stunning graphics in their games. Their upcoming title, Jelly Defense, is no exception. Today, we have a sneak peak at the first official trailer of this newcomer to the Tower Defense genre with a few new twists (or should I say "twisters"?).

The game, featuring 20+ missions, 8 unique power-ups, and 10 tower types, will be available in the Android Market September 29th.

We first told you about Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack! back in July, and now, just two months later, it has officially landed in the Android Market.

Kamikaze Attack is a new take on a the cult classic action from the old school Serious Sam, putting you in the shoes of Sam's mortal enemy, The Headless Kamikaze. You'll blast, kick, and whatever else your way through 40 insane levels trying to rid the world of Sam once and for all.

Believe it or not, Connect Four was originally released in February of 1974, which makes it 37 years old. In that time, it's seen some minor updates and variations, but it mostly remains the same game that it was all those years ago with a plastic grid and some colored tokens.

Fast forward a decade or four, and the old classic seems to have been somewhat re-imagined and brought into the 21st century thanks to an Android game called Gravity Wins.

pocket league story

Kairosoft has already had you managing a race car team, a Japanese inn, and a game development studio, but their latest game, Pocket League Story, will have you training your own soccer team.

Much like the other Story games, Pocket League Story allows for total control of your team, from picking and training players, to building gyms and stadiums, and even selling merchandise. If you're already a fan of the genre, you'll probably want to pick this up in the Android Market for the usual cost of $5.18.

Everyone has played the original Space Invaders at one point or another -- scrolling back and forth, trying to eliminate each and every menacing insect-like alien floating above you. Imagine that, now add in steroids and speed, and the end result would be something similar to Space Invaders Infinity Gene. Just take a look at the gameplay trailer:

The biggest feature in Infinity Genre is its "the more you play, the more it evolves" styling, so it's an always-changing environment.
