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.

Your down time is Zynga's bread and butter. Between Words with, Hanging with, and Scramble with Friends, Zynga has a pretty big monopoly on your social gaming. Today, the casual gaming giant is building out new territory in your world with a paid version of Scramble with Friends. This version removes those pesky ads and also doubles your token-earning fun. These tokens, by the way, are not the worst thing in the world.

Sidescrollers. Guns. Jumping. Brown. It's as if all of these things were just meant to go together since the dawn of time, yet no one dares combine them for fear of failing. Finally, one developer set out to do the unthinkable and bring them all together in a never before seen combination of awesome, old, and stuff. The end result was Gunman Clive, a retro-style sidescroller of kickass proportions.

Seriously, watch this.

Kairosoft, makers of the wildly popular Game Dev Story (and a ton of other "Story" games), released Cafeteria Nipponica to the Play Store today, bringing a familiar art style and gameplay format back once again, but this time in a restaurant.

The game poses players as "chef de cuisine" at their very own restaurant, allowing for total control over every detail from tables to TVs to menus, ingredients, salary negotiation, dish development, and much more.

Star Defender 3

We were first introduced to Star Defender 3 a short time ago, but it has already become one of our favorites. This spectacular space shooter by Awem Studio really has quite a bit going for it, and if you happen to be a fan of games similar to Space Invaders then this title will definitely whet your gaming appetite.

In Star Defender 3, you'll come up against wave after wave of alien enemies, but you also have a very large arsenal of weapons to fend them off.

So, envision this for moment: you're a farmer. You have some killer crops of corn reaching their peak, just waiting to be picked. Then, disaster strikes - aliens come down from... wherever aliens come from, to steal your precious corn. You're left with but one choice: kill 'em all.

That's basically the premise of the new game Farm Invasion USA from HandyGames, the same crew that brought us Guns'n'Glory, Aporkalypse, and more.

Update: That's it, guys - all 1,000 Zeemotes are gone. Congrats to all who got one!

Yes, you read that right. We're giving away 1,000 Zeemote Bluetooth Gaming Controllers. One thousand. If you were to buy all of those from Amazon, it would cost you a whopping $30,000. Yeah - kick back and chew on that for a few.

So, what's a Zeemote? It's a controller that aims to drastically improve gaming on mobile devices, because, let's face it - touchscreen controls generally suck.

Apparently, it's all the rage for developers to bring classic games to modern platforms. Games that used to require full PC setups or (then) powerful consoles now run perfectly on mobile devices, so resurrecting this "old tech" for a new generation seems like the perfect idea.

The developers behind the port of Duke Nukem 3D have brought another classic FPS (first person shooter) to Android: Painkiller: Purgatory. For the uninitiated, Painkiller is a throwback game from the early 2000s where you play the part of a young man trapped in Purgatory, trying to find his way to Heaven so he can be with his wife.

dungeon-hunter-3-android

When Dungeon Hunter 3 was originally advertised all the way back in December 2011, we were promised an Android release in "January 2012". Unfortunately, those plans didn't quite come to fruition, but fast forward a couple of months to the end of March and you can finally download the game for your Android device from the Play Store for free.

Like the iOS version, there are 16 arenas for you to fight through, and each of these can be played at 5 levels of difficulty so that you can return to them on a higher difficulty level as you get better.
