Released in the second half of last year, Shoot The Birds was an interesting and popular take on the familiar Duck Hunt genre of games. If you didn't get enough of your favourite crossbow-wielding pumpkin head hero, he returns in a ghoulish sequel to do what he does best: Shoot The Zombirds.
Developer Infinite Dreams has retained the original Shoot The Birds formula, i.e. the Pumpkin Boy must protect the little Pumpkids by shooting the birds out of the sky.
The Grand Theft Auto series is a veritable gaming classic, spanning 14 games and numerous clones. The games are all highly addictive with enthralling storylines, and Rockstar has been able to replicate this magic formula with GTA III for Android.
The game normally retails for $4.99, however in celebration of the Memorial Day weekend, Rockstar has decided to massively discount it by 80%. Starting today you can pick up the game from the Google Play store for just $0.99, but hurry, the offer is only valid till Monday, May 28th.
Before anyone had the chance to get their hands on Mass Effect 3 and complain about the ending, EA released Mass Effect Infiltrator on Apple's iOS. Now that most interested gamers have played through Mass Effect 3, the game has arrived fashionably late on Android. This is a game that will still appeal to fans of Mass Effect if for no other reason than it manages to tell a story straight out of the Mass Effect universe.
Well, this might be one of the most (potentially) awesome stories we cover this week. GameFly, the company best known for setting up a Netflix-style gaming rental service, has announced that it plans to open up a third-party gaming store on iOS and Android (think TegraZone, but with less hardware tie-ins). This would, presumably, be in addition to the already-existing GameFly app. Additionally, the company has "set aside a game development fund" that it will use to fund game developers with great ideas, but less cash flow.
Summer movie season is already underway, which means that you can expect product placement and tie-ins all over the place. Today's synergistic entry: Men In Black 3 For Android, produced by Gameloft. The game puts you in the role of an MiB agent, protecting the world from rogue alien presences.
The game allows players to tackle enemies one-on-one, as well as train agents, build out the facility, upgrade weapons, and travel through time.
Fans of the Mass Effect series can now enjoy all the action of the big boys on their mobile device in EA's newest entry to the Play Store: Mass Effect: Infiltrator.
ME:I features an "all-new original Mass Effect storyline" set in Cerberus base, where you, agent Randall Ezno, decide to go renegade and take the whole base out. You have an arsenal of insane weapons and armor at your disposal throughout the game, and can use in-game credits to upgrade all your gear along the way.
Theme Hospital was a hit when it came out on the PC in 1997. Fans of the game are free to begin celebrating now that the game has been ported to Android as a free app by a one man UK developer called Armed Pineapple. The developer is working from the CorsixTH free software project, but it looks like someone has taken the code he's released and has started selling it on Google Play.
From May 24th to June 1st, a boatload of your favorite Android games will be going on sale in celebration of pricing freedom. Because We May, a coalition of game developers that is "preparing for launch," announced the sale recently, explaining that the purpose of the sale is to "celebrate online stores that give us control over pricing."
The stores involved include the iOS App Store, Mac App Store, Steam, Google Play, and a few others (including a "Direct from Developer" option).
