If you were on the fence about whether to pick up the Humble Bundle For Android 2, this should help sway you one way or the other: the bundle creators have added a new game, Snuggle Truck, to the mix. This game puts you in the driver's seat of a truck filled with poorly-secured stuffed animals. The objective is to take what is apparently the least safe route possible to deliver these stuffed animals to their destination without losing too many.

If you love old-school side-scroller fighting games like Tekken, Mortal Kombat, and Street Fighter, then you've probably played one of the many The Kings of Fighters games throughout the years. The series has now made its way to Android, albeit only for a few select devices for the time being.

Maybe you weren't waiting up til 4am EST, eagerly anticipating the release of Angry Birds Space. That is what you have us for, after all. If you were, though, you might remember that only one version of the app made it to the Play Store that night: the free version. Later, though, Rovio released "Angry Birds Space Premium," which is the ad-free version of the app. Now, Rovio has released Angry Birds Space HD.
Ever since a hardware manufacturer went to a music festival to announce a video game about birds flying into space, the internet has been waiting for Angry Birds Space to launch. Well, the countdown is finally over, and Angry Birds Space is now stationed at Amazon's Appstore.
As per usual, the game is free if you like ads, or $0.99 on the Appstore for an ad-free experience. Amazon also has an HD version of the ad-free game for the Kindle Fire available on the Appstore.
ErnCon, an awesome game with a strange name, reached version 1.0 today, officially "going gold." The game could be described as a mix between the classic 'Asteroids' and any entry from the chaotic "bullet hell" genre, with some interesting multiplayer capabilities thrown in.
ErnCon's description urges users to "join your allies in the epic battle to retake the galaxy," which could be paraphrased as "shoot everything and stay alive." When first starting the game, a nameless, busty guide will help you learn how to play in a quick tutorial mission.
Giving us perhaps one of the most unique games I've ever played, 4gency released Node.Hack to the Play Store today. The game poses the player as "a digital warrior on the front lines, cracking the world's toughest computer systems for profit." Indeed, the object of the game is to hack through individual nodes to accrue thousands upon thousands of dollars and escape before being destroyed by enemy AI.
The first thing I noticed about Node.Hack was of course its visual style.
