I am going to show you a game. It costs about a buck on the Play Store and is very fun. However, once you begin playing it, you will have roughly five minutes until you either scream, demand a refund, or your head explodes. There are no other options. The game is called Puk. And it is insane.
The concept is simple. At the start of each level, you are given a set number of slingshot-able pucks (I get it!). Read More
When Snapdragon processors with Adreno 320 GPUs were the hottest thing coming out of Qualcomm's factories, the company released Reign of Amira to show off the power of its then-flagship hardware. Now, the company is using a similar method with the game's sequel, Reign of Amira: The Lost Kingdom, which is available now exclusively for devices packing the Snapdragon 600 CPU (or supposed to be, rather – I was given the option to install it on my Nexus 4).

Kairosoft plus ninjas. Now that the die-hard fans are already stampeding to the Play Store, the rest of you can stick around and find out why you should play Ninja Village. The previously Japan-only title is now available to the English-speaking world, bringing Kairosoft's familiar, pixelated spin on city-building and battling to the well-trodden Edo Period setting. Those of you who've played Epic Astro Story should find the game familiar.
The style of the game closely follows Kairobotica, tasking the player to build a city for their ninja clan with various structures to train, equip and deploy tiny killing machines. Read More
To say that Koreans get into video games more than most of us would be an understatement. Sure, we may stay up til midnight to play a sweet new game, but these guys build friggin' stadiums to play them in. Starcraft isn't the only game that's taken off in Korea, though. Ragnarok Online has been a huge MMORPG in the country that spread worldwide and is now landing on Android. Read More
Ok, first I'm going to tap for a red to bolt the Dimir Guildmage and swing for 6. Then, tap another red and my Everflowing Chalice for 4 to summon a Deathforge Shaman and pay the kicker 5 times for 10 damage. See, you should have mulled in the beginning, you were too mana screwed to play your hosers. I've got the game unless you topdeck a Geddon. Oh crap, it's shutting down! Read More
Crumble Zone has all the ingredients for a great action arcade game. Aliens? Check. Guns? Check. Great artwork? Check. Best of all, it just came out on Android and it's free!
So here's the deal: you're the alien, naturally, and you have to shoot down a load of meteorites and asteroids whilst rotating around a planet that you're trying to save. The more space rock you destroy, the higher your score. Read More
We may have managed to survive 2012 without the world coming to an end, but you can't really say the same for the poor folks in 'EMERGENCY'.
Gamers on iOS have been able to battle against plane crashes, train crashes, meteor impacts and terrorists for a while now, and the popular game has finally made its way over to the Play Store to allow Android users to get in on the action as well. Read More
Sometimes, classic games are just better. If you're tired of playing through endless variations of Temple Run and flinging animated birds across your smartphone display, then you'll no doubt be glad to hear that NAMCO has just released PAC-MAN + Tournaments on Android.
The app has been designed so that it remains very similar to the original arcade version of the game, and you'll be able to play PAC-MAN Classic to your heart's content with a virtual joystick at the bottom of the screen. Read More
Order & Chaos is Gameloft's fantasy-themed MMORPG franchise, but the French developer's newest title in the series is a bit of a departure. Order & Chaos Duels is a card game in the spirit of Magic, but with simplified rules. It has an offline campaign mode, as well as online PvP play.
Order & Chaos Duels has over 250 cards to collect. Some of them are common, and you might come across them as random drops. Read More
