The latest installment of the Call of Duty franchise has landed today and Activision is ready with an Android app that will help you earn extra goodies. After all, you don't want to ever be completely disconnected from the game, right? That would just be crazy.
To be frank, October was a bit bare of notable game releases, unless you count ports and adaptations of older titles. Our monthly top seven contains three ports, one adaptation of a card game, and one modified version of a casual PlayStation title. Only Botanicula and Rovio's surprisingly engaging Retry stand on their own. Still, there's plenty to choose from if all you need is a diversion, and our Honorable Mention section includes some choice entries for RPG and horror fans.
A frightful evening to you all, ghouls and goblins. It's Halloween, and even if you don't celebrate, there are plenty of sales in the Play Store for you to take advantage of. Several prolific developers have put almost their entire catalogs on sale, so get your bag ready so we can pile in those treats.
Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got a retro revival, a sickeningly cute jumping game, an appealing escape title, and a Flappy Bird clone with zombies.
Okay, new build submitted, this time it properly accepted the OBB file, not sure why it didn't like the first one. Fix propagating.

Back in early 2012, mobile game developer Mika Mobile made the public and controversial decision to stop creating games for Android.
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.
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.
