[New Game] Race Through City Ruins And Annihilate Mutants In Glu Mobile's Mutant Roadkill

Challenging players to "race through an apocalyptic wasteland overrun with mutants and other hazards," Glu Mobile recently released Mutant Roadkill to the Play Store.

As its name would suggest, Mutant Roadkill is a driving game (of sorts). The primary objective is to navigate the streets of an utterly destroyed, abandoned city, running over as many hapless mutant zombie creatures as possible while avoiding collisions with debris including other cars.

Building on this simple premise, the game offers powerups, combo bonuses, and upgrade-able cars. Players can earn coins in-game, or (of course) buy them via in-app purchase. Players can also gain powerups by completing special missions (for instance driving 2 miles without hitting a mutant, or activating 2 powerups in the same run).

Great Big War Game Hits The Play Store With More Missions, Online Play – Rubicon: "See What We Did There?"

Following up on the huge success of Great Little War Game, Rubicon Development has officially released the game's sequel: Great Big War Game.

Like its predecessor, GBWG is a 3D turn-based strategy game with a "unique comical style." Indeed, the series' art style is unique and fun, adding a lighthearted vibe to a game that encourages players to "spread mayhem and destruction." The game also has an easy-to-grasp control scheme, relying primarily on tap and swipe actions.

In GBWG, players can expect an even bigger single player campaign (with 50 missions) and new online multiplayer capability (with asynchronous play). With a player base of 2.5 Million (according to Rubicon), there should be no problem finding people to play against online, though the game also offers a pass-and-play mode.

[New Game] Com2uS Releases Inotia 4: Assassin of Berkel To The Play Store

The latest installment of Com2uS' Inotia series - sub-titled Assassin of Berkel - is now available for download in the Play Store. I'm not going to pretend to have any idea how this version compares to previous versions (since I haven't played them), but I will say this: it looks cool and the Store description sells the game quite well:

- 6 Classes, 90 Skills
Choose from 6 classes; Black Knight, Assassin, Warlock, Priest, and Ranger.
15 different skills are added to each class. Combine all skills to customize your party's strategy.

- Convenient Party System
Mercenaries can be recruited to your party anytime and anywhere.

Editorial: The In-App Purchase Conundrum, Or, How Dead Trigger Has Wrongly Become The Target Of A Witch Hunt

If there's one thing that sets people off upon purchasing or downloading an app (games in particular), it's opening it up and finding it has in-app purchases.

And this is, generally, a good instinct for consumers to have - hundreds, if not thousands of mobile games blatantly take advantage of people's willingness to nickel-and-dime themselves out of money they would have never otherwise spent buying a game in the first place. Basically, see 50% of Zynga's business model (the other 50% being stealing other developers' games).

In fact, it was Zynga that sparked one of the most notable in-app purchase hate campaigns from users when it added consumable cheats (essentially) to Words With Friends that allowed players to gain advantages over their opponents for a fee.

Major Mayhem Brings Cover-Based Shooting To The 2D World, Courtesy Of Adult Swim

Most of you will know Adult Swim from the "no kids allowed" programming shown late night on Cartoon Network, but the quirky pseudo-station has been tossing its hat into the game development ring for some time. The latest entry in their Android stable is Major Mayhem, a 2D gallery shooter (with 3D graphics) that's a blend of gameplay mechanics from the likes of Metal Slug and Time Crisis. And all the sense and subtlety of a thrown brick - in a good way.

The game has the titular character roaming through side-scrolling environments, with the player controlling his aiming and liberal use of munitions.
