We know how you like your games. Engaging with a hint of hilarity and fantasy. Penny Arcade, legendary webcomic and gaming community taste-maker, has released the third installment in its turn-based RPG Penny Arcade's On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 to the Play Store. $3 gets you access to the entire adventure, extra DLC and a "rejiggered UI," which just sounds fancy!
If you've ever played Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, or been on the internet for five minutes, you should feel right at home in this game.
Majesco Entertainment is asking Android users if they are ready to "become a legend" with Legends of Loot, released to the Play Store today.
Legends of Loot, as you may expect from glancing at the icon above, is a humorous, cartoonish, "not-so-typical" take on the adventure game genre. The game, which promises players will "quickly develop into grand adventurers" as they progress through each environment, follows a plucky protagonist who must face off against evil dragon overlords while solving "mind-bending" puzzles and traversing mazes and traps in Egyptian, Medieval, and Asian environments across close to one hundred levels.
Viva Media has just launched its award-winning Crazy Machines Golden Gears to the Play Store (with expected Tegra Zone availability), looking to bring the Rube Goldberg-inspired dreams of a mad scientist to your mobile device while challenging players to use boards, boxing gloves, laser beams, and dynamite to achieve various goals in each level.
For now, the game features only its "Challenges" gameplay mode, which will take players through a series of levels each with their own end goal, but a "Create – Share" mode is promised to be "coming soon."
It's up to player to use various tools to accomplish those goals, but the levels get progressively harder as the game continues.
Halloween is the spookiest holiday of the year, so it only makes sense that an undead-infested game like Dead Trigger would want to get in on the action. The newest update to hit the Play Store brings exactly that, with a fun new arena called the Haunted Graveyard, along with a slews of pumpkin-head zombies.
Not only that, but there's also a new way to destroy said zombies: the crossbow.
You're clearly not tired of zombies, are you? How could you be? They're the perfect surrogate for people in violent video games. Without worrying about any of the moral consequences, you can shoot, chainsaw, maim, electrify, incinerate, or nominate them for Oscars! Try doing that with a normal human being! In Zombiewood, the carnage takes place in a Hollywood (get it?) backlot, the one place you've always wanted to let loose and break stuff.
FIFA may be the undisputed king of football games on the console, but when it comes to mobile gaming, it's a totally different ball game.
Gameloft will be hoping that Real Football 2013 (also known as "Real Soccer 2013" in the U.S. store) can take advantage of FIFA 13's delayed arrival to the Play store this year, and amass as many downloads as possible, but how does it compare to its rivals?
Sidescrolling / top-down space shooters are nothing new - but really good ones are still, like any good game, worth pointing out. I went into Sector Strike, by Clapfoot, with high hopes - they made the now-Android-classic Tank Hero. And while Sector Strike is a pretty good game, odd control choices, repetition, and in-app purchases make this free-to-play title a short and predictable love affair.
Sector Strike plays like almost any other spaceship sidescroller: you shoot enemies continuously with a bunch of lasers and other sci-fi age goodies that come out of the front of your craft like the contents of a psychedelic new year's party popper.
We've all been there: some crazy moon phase happens, awakening hordes of sleeping monsters that are now dead set on destroying... everything. When that happen in my town, I usually grab some sort of diabolical weapon and start swinging it like a madman, destroying every beasty that comes towards me. For those who haven't had the pleasure of experiencing this fascinating event, there's TinyLegends - Crazy Knight.
This game comes to us from the iOS side of the world, where it has achieved quite a solid fanbase.
Ludia, a Canadian video game developer famous for board game and game show adaptations across various platforms, recently added a second entry to their Android catalogue with Family Feud and Friends, a game that looks to bring the Family Feud experience to your mobile device with "HD graphics" and a few compelling gameplay elements made possible by the jump from TV to mobile.
You may notice that, unlike its television counterpart, Ludia's game is called Family Feud and Friends.
Fans of old-school classics, gather round and feast your eyes! Atari has announced that two of its high-value properties will be coming to Android in 2013. First on the list is the retro hit Roller Coaster Tycoon. If you were around in the late 90s (and we assume most of our readers are over the age of 12), you might remember that there were two kinds of simulation games back then: Sim games from Maxis, and everyone else.
