OrangePixel's Gunslugs 2 Supplies More 8-Bit Inspired, Gun-Totin', Nostalgia-Infused Platforming For $3.15

The original Gunslugs' mix of bullet-filled, NES-inspired, platforming nostalgia attracted hundreds of thousands of downloads. Now, two years to the day since we covered the original release, developer OrangePixel is back with a sequel, the creatively named Gunslugs 2.

In Gunslugs 2, the Black Duck Army returns to take over the world in an adventure that may be as impacted by 80's action films as video games of yesteryear. In both cases, the moral is the same—there's no such thing as an evil plan that can't be overcome by overwhelming quantities of hot lead.

Pro Wrestlers Pretend To Be Superheroes In The Free-To-Play Fighter WWE Immortals

You would think that professional wrestlers don't need an active fantasy life. They get paid huge amounts of money to pretend to beat people up and show off unbelievable physiques on television on a regular basis. But I suppose even wrestlers like to pretend that they're superheroes (the ones that aren't already superheroes, anyway). If you'd like to play along, Warner Bros and developer NetherRealm are here with an officially-licensed WWE fighting game that dials up the more fantastic elements of pro wrestling.

Seeking freedom, their plans are inevitably thwarted when the automatic timer runs out or a player triggers their detonation, bringing their life to an end.

In Flockers, a Lemmings-style puzzle game from Worms-developer Team 17, the sheep have had enough. Rather than continue this hopeless existence, they make a break for it.

New Platformer Spoiler Alert Makes You Play The Game Entirely In Reverse

Spoiler Alert begins on the last, and paradoxically easiest, level in the game, where you defeat the final boss and then rescue the princess in familiar but not quite copyright infringing fashion. At that point you play the game in reverse, going backwards through hundreds of levels that the tiny chili pepper hero has played, but you haven't. It's an odd approach to a platform game, and one that has to be played to be fully understood.

Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders Takes To The Air On Android

Flight combat games have a long and storied history in gaming, but most of these titles on mobile have vastly simplified control schemes. Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders doesn't sell itself short, though. This is a true simulator-style flight combat game with multiple control schemes and tons of planes.

XCOM Board Game Gains Android Support With Free Companion App

If you're a gamer, you probably know XCOM as the recently revived turn-based alien killin' strategy game. It's also been given an official board game, a natural fit for the turn-based combat so heavily featured in the digital version. Until today you needed an iOS device for the mandatory companion app, which handles such fiddly things as player turns and hit percentages - the things your DM used to do on pen and paper.
