Solitaire has been bundled with Windows since version 3.0, released all the way back in 1990. With Windows 8, Microsoft replaced it with 'Microsoft Solitaire Collection.' The new version offered more game modes, as well as achievements and cloud saves through Xbox Live, but famously included banner and full-screen advertisements unless you paid for the Premium edition.

Niantic has been taking flack ever since it removed the tracking feature in Pokémon GO a few days after launch. Then the developer started to roll out a new feature, named 'Nearby,' which showed Pokémon if they were near to Pokéstops. After feedback from users, that has now been tweaked a little, and it's on a slightly larger roll out.
The new, improved "Nearby" feature will only appear if you are close to a Pokéstop. This supposedly means that someone cannot look for a Pokéstop, find the Pokémon close to it, then go and catch them. Read More
Remote control cars are great fun, so game developer WeGo Interactive has brought a form of that to Android, with the release of Re-Volt3, a sequel to the popular Re-Volt2. The 'official launch' of the game is today, with different items on offer every day until November 27. Previously, the game has been a in geo-restricted, limited launch, but now it is available worldwide on the Play Store.
The premise is pretty simple - work your way up through the ranks of RC racing until you're the best. It's a good game, although because the main viewpoint is from behind the car, it feels just like any other, 'normal' racing game, except the cars are more sensitive than they would be normally.

Jade Empire started its life on the original Xbox back in 2005, then it came to PC two years later. Both times it got very positive reviews. Now, almost a decade later it's coming to Android. This is a "special edition" remastering with updated controls for mobile and new content—it's the same game you can get on Steam, but it's $5 cheaper on Android. Read More

The Lego Harry Potter games, both Years 1-4 and 5-7, are on sale for $0.49 each in several countries including the U.S. Read More
The GO series of games have, by all accounts, been a big success for Square Enix. We at Android Police love both Hitman GO and Lara Croft GO, and Deus Ex GO is no different - it's great. Even more than the thousands who have already bought it can enjoy it now, as it's down 80% to 0.99 (or the equivalent) for a limited time. This goes for many countries, and may even be worldwide, but we cannot verify that. Let us know in the comments what the price is in your country. Read More
Google has published numerous experiments with its cloud AI technologies, but 'Quick, Draw' is perhaps the most fun one yet. Using the same technology that interprets written symbols in Google Translate, the game attempts to guess what you are drawing. When you start, you are prompted to draw a specific thing, and the game continues making guesses until it wins or time runs out. Read More
Remember that scene from every action movie ever, where the headstrong but academically challenged hero has to be walked through an on-the-job lesson in bomb defusal by the specialist on the other end of the radio/phone/hyperspace ansible connection? Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is basically that experience, set up for two players (the on-the-job hero and remote specialist), and designed to create the maximum amount of tension possible. It debuted on Steam last year, but now it's available on the Play Store for early Daydream VR users. Read More
