Stylish Platform-Puzzle Game Contrast Arrives On The SHIELD Android TV For $15

These days it's rare to see a game praised for graphics alone - with incredibly powerful hardware available on consoles, PCs, and yes, mobile hardware, it's more about what you can do with what you have. A prime example is Contrast, a combination platformer and puzzle game that first debuted on PC and console download services just under two years ago. It's a perfect intersection of unique art design and compelling game mechanics. Today it's available on Android for $14.99, but only if you have NVIDIA's SHIELD Android TV box.

Contrast takes place in a sort of steampunk-burlesque universe, following a very personal story about a mother and daughter.

[Update: More Games] Google Play Store Promotion Offers Up 13 EA And Chillingo Games For Just 10 Cents Each, Including Monopoly, NFS Most Wanted, Power Ping Pong, And More

None of the games are particularly new with the exception of Power Ping Pong (which is pretty great) and the horror adventure game In Fear I Trust (which was just published), but most of them cost $4-5 at their regular prices.

Phosphor Game Studio Releases 'Heroes Reborn: Enigma' First-Person Puzzle Game

Heroes fans had something to smile about when NBC announced that it would air a 13 episode mini-series following up the original four seasons. Not only that, creator Tim Kring returned as executive producer. But the fan service doesn't stop there. Phosphor Game Studio has released an immersive mobile game that hooks in to what's happening on TV.

The game, Hereos Reborn: Enigma, stars Dahlia, a young woman whose special powers are needed to solve various puzzles in first-person. Think Portal. You will use telekinesis and time shifting to make it through over 30 levels, all designed using Unreal Engine 4.

Steam Favorite Pix The Cat Comes To The Play Store As A SHIELD TV And SHIELD Tablet Exclusive For $10

Lately it seems that "retro" games have become synonymous with faux NES-era pixelated graphics. And while some pixel art is impressive, it's often just a means of seeming somewhat trendy without having to put in the extra effort and expense of making high-resolution 2D graphics work well. Not so with the latest SHIELD exclusive: Pix the Cat manages to blend truly nostalgic gameplay with absolutely gorgeous 2D visuals for an altogether unique experience. Unfortunately you'll need either a SHIELD Android TV or SHIELD Tablet (and a hefty $10) to play it.

The gameplay of Pix is somewhere between Snake and Pac-Man.

Tales From The Borderlands Episode One Is Now Free On The Play Store

Hey, you. Yeah you, the gamer who constantly complains that there's nothing new or interesting to check out. First of all, you're wrong, and second of all, here's why: TellTale's adventure games. These folks constantly come up with new and interesting stories to tell (albeit in other people's universes) and wrap them up in a slick, mobile-friendly package with talented writing, great voice acting, and an episodic structure. Why haven't you checked them out yet?

It might be because all those adventure game episodes cost $5 a pop on Android. And I suppose that's fair - since each one will last you about 90 minutes (assuming you only play through it once), it's expensive by mobile standards.

PPSSPP Emulator Gets Android TV Support, Screen Rotation, And An Integrated Homebrew Store In Version 1.1

PPSSPP is an impressively capable emulator for the original Sony PlayStation Portable, and today it's a little more so. The 1.1 update adds a ton of new features, or at least it officially adds them - support for Android TV and ARM64 seems to have been there for quite a while, since I've been playing Power Stone on the NVIDIA SHIELD TV since we published the review back in May.

Other changes include screen rotation support for those few PSP games that can be played in a vertical layout, the usual collection of improvements to general performance, audio, GPU compatibility, and AdHoc multiplayer mode, and savestates for homebrewed PSP apps.

Disney Retires A Lot Of Games Including Toy Story: Smash It!, Lost Light, And A Couple Of Star Wars Titles

 

Listen up kids, I'm going to tell you something and it will hurt. But sooner or later, you'll have to face the harsh realities of life and I'd rather you hear it from me than some stranger or inconsiderate relative.

Apps and games are not here forever. They come to your phone or tablet or computer for a period of time, they bring joy into your life and you spend hours and days with them. You love them and they love you back (sometimes just your money). Then there comes a time, when they've done their deed and their line codes start decaying and no one wants to take care of them anymore, to let them go.

Swords & Crossbones

Swords & Crossbones is a humerus RPG that incorporates elements of turn-based tactical games and base-builders (without the freemium baggage that usually carries).
