We might not be able to get you a deal on Nvidia's new Portal and Half-Life 2 ports, but there is some other cool stuff on sale in the Android ecosystem today. So dry those tears and get ready to spend.

Trials is a series of motocross games that takes a liberal approach to sports and, incidentally, gravity. The latest full release, Trials Fusion, saw an iOS counterpart called Trials Frontier. This slightly more cartoony take on the long-running series features the same physics-based racing and orientation gameplay - imagine it as a single-lane, dialed-up version of Excitebike. The Android version was just released, but only in certain locations. We're not sure where, we just know that it isn't the US.

Edge-Thumb

Live. Die. Repeat. That's the tagline for Warner Bros.'s upcoming film, Edge of Tomorrow, and the movie tie-in game takes this to heart. The game consists of one-part living, two-parts dying, and one-part repeating. Rinse, repeat, and you have yourself an experience that's roughly the same as any other game out there, just more overt about it.

The game is a first person shooter that manages to take the mindless shooter formula and dip its IQ by a few more points.

It's a good day to be an NVIDIA SHIELD owner. Valve's Android ports of PC shooter classics Portal and Half-Life 2 just dropped in the Play Store for $10 a pop. They're only for the SHIELD (even other devices with the Tegra 4 chipset aren't invited to the party), which is a bit of a mixed blessing - these games really require a full controller to play.

Valve teased an Android release for the 2007 classic Portal way back in March, but we only heard about the Half-Life 2 port last week (via crowbar).

While there is no shortage of puzzle and arcade games on the Android platform, it can be easy to get drawn into the mainstream hits like Angry Birds and Cut The Rope. The first time I stumbled onto a "darker" game, I had downloaded World Of Goo as part of a Humble Bundle, and was instantly mesmerized by its graphics and sounds. There was something hauntingly beautiful about it, and I ended up on the Play Store looking at the "Similar Apps" and "Users also installed" sections.

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 frontier version of Sim City, another toy-flavored defense game from Chillingo, an 8-bit falling game, and a Breakout clone that spends too much time on the Internet.

This morning Android Police editor David Ruddock received a package in the mail. The only thing enclosed was a lime-green crowbar.

It says it all, really.

PC gamers will recognize the logo for Valve's much-loved science fiction shooter Half-Life 2 emblazoned on the bar, which is the iconic starter weapon for the game. "What Would Gordon [Freeman] Do?" and NVIDIA's SHIELD logo, along with NVIDIA's signature green color, makes this a not-so-subtle indication that the game is coming to the Android-powered SHIELD at some point.

Aliens-Thumb

Rebel Twins, the developer of Daddy Was A Thief, is back with another zany Android game. Aliens Drive Me Crazy puts you in the shoes of a young lad who is understandably upset when aliens decide to invade. He grabs his nearest weapon, hops in the car, and speeds off. Despite the difference in concept, the gameplay is largely similar to Rebel Twins' previous work. Players hop between floors by swiping up and down, collecting coins, overcoming foes, and rescuing innocent Earthlings in the process.
