Yesterday, we announced Sentinel 3: Homeworld by Origin8 which hit the Android market as the third game in a very popular tower defense series, and the first installment to be available for Android. Normally I am not too excited about games of this genre, but I can honestly say that Sentinel 3 has impressed me both in terms of gameplay experience and sheer visual interest, thanks to the cleanly styled environments, visual effects, and smooth animation.

In a trip over from the iOS world, developer Origin8 Technologies brings us the most graphically intense, visually-stimulating tower defense game that we've ever seen. Before I even attempt to put into words the insanity that this game will bring into your life, take a look at the gameplay, complete with a super-sick dubstep soundtrack:

Speaking of dubstep -- anyone know the name of this track?

Update: We found the song (thanks, Denis!), but we still don't know what it's called.

When our former man Will Shanklin played Guerrilla Bob, he came away very impressed - enough so that he highly recommended it. Fast forward a few months, and the studio behind it, Angry Mob Games, is back with what looks to be another instant classic: Muffin Knight. Take a look:

The story:

Fertilize the forest with the unicorn, cover the sky with black holes, flood the world with candy, but just get the muffins back!

One of the most basic and (relatively) inexpensive genres of games, hidden-object games ask the player to find, well, hidden objects in a given scenario. Generally this involves some level of problem-solving and combining objects to find the next clue.

There are myriad hidden-object games developed for Android, but we've picked out five that we think are worth checking out.

Mystique

First up is Mystique, a hidden-object game that comes in three parts - only the first of which is free.

Some of my favorite mobile games for the mobile platform are of the puzzle genre, because it tends to lend itself well to the array of controls that are provided. A new THD game that just landed in the Market today, however, combines simple controls and some quirky physics to give you a unique puzzling experience.
