Peter Moorhead's Murder Is A Cyberpunk Short Story Told As A Point-And-Click Adventure, Now In The Play Store For $1.49

I may have said this before, but point-and-click adventures are my favorite type of game to play on an Android device (if you haven't, check out Gemini Rue). There is quite the selection available in the Play Store, and now you can add one more to that list. Peter Moorhead's Murder has made its way to our mobile platform of choice.

Zeptolab Goes Back To The Well With Cut The Rope: Magic, Now Available For Free In The Play Store

Zeptolab's gaming portfolio looks a little one-dimensional. After Cut the Rope, Cut the Rope HD, Cut the Rope 2, Cut the Rope: Experiments, and Cut the Rope: Time Travel, the developer only has two games in its Android portfolio that don't feature that tiny green monster. In the latest update, said monster gets considerably less green. Cut the Rope: Magic is now available in the Play Store for Android devices running 4.0 or later, and it has the now-standard $.99-99.99 in-app purchases.

LEGO's Nexo Knights Franchise Makes Its Play Store Debut, Blending Building Toys With Video Games

The biggest trend in the toy world at the moment is the blend of "real" toys and action figures with digital games. LEGO's already dipped its toes into the same pool as Disney Infinity and Skylanders with LEGO Dimensions, but that's not the only combination that the mega-company is working on. An original franchise, Nexo Knights, lets kids build playsets based on the techno-fantasy theme and then upload the various characters' shield codes into the accompanying game, Merlok 2.0.

Classic Dungeon Crawler Shadowgate Gets A Gorgeous Remastered Release On Android

I can't honestly claim to be an old-school fan of Shadowgate, because when it was first published for the Macintosh in 1987, I was -2 months old. The original game was one of the first dungeon crawlers, advancing the player from room to room in a text-driven role-playing game that focuses on puzzles over combat, ruthlessly killing the player if he or she makes a misstep or doesn't keep enough torches around. It was kind of like Dark Souls, but with a greyscale color palette. Shadowgate is simple by modern PC and console standards, but its intricate worldbuilding and devious puzzles have made it a minor classic in the genre.

I used to have a copy of Scribblenauts Unlimited for the Wii U. I caught it during a black Friday sale for $10 or $20 or so. For a console game, that was cheap. But now the title has made its way to mobile devices, and there it goes for a significantly cheaper $4.99.

A Good Snowman Is Hard To Build But You Can Still Give It Your Best Shot

There's nothing more heartwarming in the middle of a snowy winter than getting together with your family or friends to build a snowman. You can always count on the experience to throw you into a time machine and make you feel childish and innocent again. And the snow fights, man the snow fights! The joy of landing a big compact snowball smack in the middle of your target! Is there anything better?

But I digress. Snowy seasons aren't prevalent all year round in every corner of the world, so if you want to relive that pure joy while still enjoying a brain teasing game, A Good Snowman should fit the bill.

Talk of Age of Empires coming to Android has existed around the water cooler for over two years now, since Microsoft gave developer KLad license to make games with the property.
