Android Encounters Space Marshals, Exchanges Fire In Pixelbite's Twin-Stick Tactical Shooter

Setting aside the fact that Space Marshals is a port, the whole cowboys in space thing has been done before. Joss Whedon's Firefly has thirteen episodes and a movie exploring the concept. Cowboys & Aliens let Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford have a crack at it not too long ago. Before that, Clint Eastwood and Tommy Lee Jones gave it a shot in, yes, Space Cowboys.

But in a sea of generic sci-fi shooters, capping aliens in the desert while wearing a 10-gallon hat can feel somewhat refreshing.

Amazon Reverses Decision: The Original 'Postal' Is Now Available On The Appstore For $1.99, Still MIA From The Google Play Store

Earlier this week we reported on Google's decision to refuse an Android port of the PC shooter Postal in the Google Play Store. Two days later, a representative of developer Running With Scissors told us that Amazon had done the same for the Amazon Appstore, and provided us with the rejection letters from both companies. Google refusing to allow the controversial shooter onto the Play Store is merely inconsistent; as we noted at the time, games with similar levels of violence like Grand Theft Auto III are easily available.

Corridor Z Brings A Somewhat Fresh Look To The Endless Runner Genre...Also There Are Zombies

Look, I love zombies as much as the next guy (assuming he actually loves zombies - if he doesn't, then I actually love zombies more than the next guy). I also love zombies games. Here's the problem: good zombies games are hard to find on basically any platform. I realize that they're not all going to be The Last of Us - especially on mobile - but I'd like to see something different every once in a while.

Football Manager Classic 2015 Treats High-End Android Tablets To A 3D Version Of The Coaching Simulator

Don't let the name fool you. Football Manager Classic 2015 isn't an old version of the somehow-popular series of soccer/football coaching titles. You're not in for a nostalgic dose of pixelated graphics (in this case, that's what the regular entries are for). Football Manager Classic 2015 hits Google Play with 3D visuals, more players, and more languages. In short, it's closer to the PC version of the game.

Football Manager Classic 2015 supports less hardware than the most recent Football Manager Handheld.

Rovio Stars Publishes Runner-Racer Sky Punks, A Mix Of Cutesy Hoverboards And In-App Purchases

What do you get when you combine Back to the Future-style hoverboards with a quasi-anime art style and runner mechanics? The answer is Sky Punks, the latest game from Rovio's publishing arm. No, it's not created by the Angry Birds folks (as the Play Store app description suggests) - the developer is Fathom Interactive, whose previous Android entries have been largely unremarkable. But with a big name in the mobile gaming world backing them up, they're hoping for a hit with this stylish and surprisingly varied runner.

Playworld Superheroes serves as an example that a game aimed for kids doesn't have to be second rate.

This immersive title gives players a chance to create their own superhero, much the way many of us have done in our childhood years. You create an imaginary costume using whatever household supplies you have lying around―whether that be a cardboard box or some stickers—and apply crayons and glue. Then you watch as the game turns your haphazard creation into a full-blown, customized suit of armor.
