The golden age of PC role-playing is coming roaring back on mobile devices. After releasing the enhanced edition of Baldur's Gate earlier this year, developer Beamdog has kept its promise to bring Icewind Dale to Android. This game was released in 2000 and had a lot in common with Baldur's Gate, though some would say it was even better. Now it can be yours on Android—all 2.6GB of it.
Update #2: Before continuing, recognize that this post was written with my tongue firmly in cheek. I intended for it to be humorous, but clearly I didn't articulate myself as well as I should have.
So let me clear things up. This is a mobile port of a classic, and it is absolutely worth your money. If you played the original and have longed to play it again, download this. If you love Square Enix ports, download this.
This summer Telltale Games brought The Wolf Among Us to Android, a game based on the Fables comic book series from Bill Willingham and DC Comics. There was a catch--the game was only available via the Amazon Appstore. It wasn't a Kindle Fire exclusive or anything, but many Android users don't particularly want to deal with the Appstore for content, even if this means missing out on whatever piece of software is currently the Free App of the Day.
It's getting to be the time of year when developers drop sales on us left and right, and a few are already getting into the habit. There are two franchises of games on sale, and a couple other neat apps are along for the ride.
After all the Lollipop craziness over the last week or so, you're probably looking to relax and stop obsessing over when you're going to get that lovely update. Okay, maybe you're still freaking out, but try to calm down anyway. Here, look at these apps and games that are on sale.
Games with a compelling story and good voice acting are few and far between on mobile devices, but République appears to be one of them. After getting funded on Kickstarter a few years ago, this game is finally available on Android. It was previously on iOS, where it's gotten positive reviews.
I don't watch hockey, and the closest I've come to the sport consisted of living in Pittsburgh for a year and a half, a place where people adamantly stand by their NHL team. (I got caught in traffic when visiting just this weekend due to a Penguins game at the Consol Energy Center, only to see the same match on TV at the restaurant where we wound up that night.) Away from that city, I'm hard pressed to think of someone who can name more than a couple teams.
Listen up, ghouls and goblins—the new Humble Mobile Bundle is available for purchase, but since it's getting to be that time of year, it's actually the Humble Mo-Boo!-ile Bundle. There is no acceptable way to pronounce that. At any rate, there are six cool games available right now, plus one free game.
Quite a while has past since there's been any Android-related news for Galaxy on Fire fans. The developers of the series that showed many gamers just how beautiful space could be and let them explore it on their mobile devices surprised a few folks when they said that the next entry would deviate from their action-oriented roots and transition into a strategy-focused MMO. Excuse me, make that a free-to-play strategy-focused MMO.
The Galaxy on Fire: Alliances came to iOS earlier this year.
