[Worst. Update. Ever.] EA Updates The Simpsons: Tapped Out With Origin Syncing, Deletes Some Players' Entire Towns [Updated x2]

Some of you who've played The Simpsons: Tapped Out, Electronic Arts' Springfield-themed Sim City clone, may have noticed a lack in features when compared with the slightly older iOS version. Namely, it lacked the ability to sync saved games (towns) over Origin, EA's much-derided social gaming platform and store. The latest update to the Android version adds Origin syncing... while leaving at least some players without a town to sync.

[New Games] Scribblenauts Remix And Batman: Arkham City Lockdown Hit The Amazon Appstore Now, Google Play This Spring

Kindle Fire owners and Amazon Appstore users, you've got two heavyweights added to your gaming catalog. Warner Bros Games has published Scribblenauts Remix and Batman: Arkham City Lockdown to the Appstore, both previously available only on iOS.

Eden To Green Launches On Android After Dropping Extraneous E's, Exclusive To Canada At First

[New App] Dolphin Gamecube And Wii Emulator Arrives In Google Play As A (Very Buggy) Pre-Alpha

The Dolphin Emulator on the desktop has breathed new life to old Gamecube and Wii games by making them playable on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. It works with almost all retail games, upscales to 1080p, and even supports the Wiimote. The newly released Android port is basically lacking all of that, but at least it's here!

[New Game] AlertEgo: DreamWalker Is Basically What I Imagine Mario Would Look Like After Too Many Mushrooms

Looking for a platformer that'll bend your brain a bit? AlterEgo: DreamWalker is the 8-bit-on-acid sequel to AlterEgo, and basically just builds on its predecessor. More levels, arguably trippier visuals, and the same switch-up platforming action of the original. The game mechanic, by the way, is simple, but fairly novel: you move your character around the platform world, but on the opposite side in a mirrored position as an 'AlterEgo' (the ghost-looking thingy).

PSA: Weird Glitch Caused A Bunch Of Disney Games To Temporarily Appear Free On The Play Store, Prices Back To Normal Now

Earlier this morning, something strange happened. A handful of paid Disney games – including Where's My Water?, Temple Run: Brave, and Wreck-it Ralph, among others – suddenly showed up as free in the Play Store. Naturally, stories started popping up in the Android world that a bunch of fairly popular games were suddenly available without charge for no apparent reason. Perhaps Disney decided that it was time to give some titles away – but that didn't make much sense, as the "lite" versions of most titles were still present alongside their formerly-paid counterparts.

Deflecticon Sets The Example For Good Guy Devs Everywhere, Makes Game Free After It Can't Support It Anymore

We've enjoyed Deflecticon, the 3D variant on the classic Pong game with some fantastic graphics and totally warped perspective. In a sad turn of events, though, the developers have stated that they will no longer be able to support the game. Given this situation, they're making it available entirely for free in an as-is state. Pretty cool, devs!

While obviously we wouldn't expect this of everyone, it is nice to see one publisher be up front about the fact that no more updates will be coming, so if something doesn't work it will not work forever.

Worms 2: Armageddon Expands Launch On Play Store To Most Countries

After a brief soft launch* in the Great White North, the classic Worms 2: Armageddon has expanded its Play Store presence to most countries (so far as we can tell, at least). It's $5 to get your turn-based explosion fix on, and early reviews of the game on the Play Store look promising. 30 single player missions are included, and there's even online multiplayer (as well as local hot seat mode).
