You may know Gamevil as the developer of the ever-popular Zenonia and Baseball Superstars series, and a bunch of other awesome games, but their latest leaves something to be desired. Similar to their earlier title Cartoon Wars: Gunner+, Gamevil's latest installment - Cartoon Wars - uses a well-know (if not overused) game concept, which is just a nice little time-killer at best. That being said, it's still fun to play and does a good job at keeping you occupied.
This edition focuses only on new games. The app roundup is coming up soon, and you can find the tablet app roundup here.
The Humble Bundle has been around for a couple of years now, but I have never heard of it. They're known for bundling up indie games, letting purchasers set their own price, and dividing up the profits among developers and charities. This is just an absolutely fascinating concept, and the first ever Android bundle has arrived!
You may have heard of Anomaly Warzone Earth HD before, and while it isn't new to Android, it is new to the Android Market. 11 Bit Studios released this game exclusively into the Amazon Appstore some months ago, but now it's fully out in the open for everyone else to enjoy. What's so great is that this game is both fresh and entirely unique. Hearing that about a title coming out of the tower defense genre sounds weird, right?
This edition focuses only on new tablet apps or ones that added Honeycomb support. Regular apps and games are coming soon.
The amount of tablet-centric apps in the last few weeks has been abysmal, so I decided to skip the tablet roundup a few times.
Yesterday Steam launched its brand new app for Android. Unfortunately, the app is still in closed beta and many users are waiting with bated breath for their invites to show up. If you're among the unwashed masses waiting for your golden ticket, we’ve got you covered. Don’t worry, though. You're not missing out on too much.
Let's get the obvious out of the way first: you won't be playing any games with this app.
Following up on the smash success of Great Little War Game, Rubicon Development has released an addition: GLWG All Out War. Rubicon is sure to point out that this game is not an official sequel, but instead an additional two campaigns, following up where the first game left off.
The developers also warn that these new levels are "fiendishly challenging," and advise new players to check out the original game first to get a handle on what they're up against.
Rockstar Games unleashed the 10th Anniversary Edition of Grand Theft Auto III onto the Android Market just over a month ago, and we thought it was awesome. Unfortunately, the game was only available for a few devices upon its release, but it has since added support for many more.
If you own a Transformer Prime, you'll be glad to know that the game's latest update puts your device on the "approved" list.
GBikes by Unchained Developers is a futuristic racing game that recently hit the Android Market. It features fast-paced, high adrenaline gameplay, along with some pretty stunning graphics. In terms of relativity, think Wipeout. This game is dangerously similar to the entire Wipeout series, but fortunately it is well-made and worth playing. There is, however, definitely room for improvement.
If you're looking for deep gameplay, this game simply does not have it, but that really isn't what titles like these aim for.
Tower defense. Tower defense. Tower defense. There's definitely no shortage of TD-style games for Android. Don't' get me wrong - TD games are great.
