Future Fight, A Free To Play Marvel Universe Beat-Em-Up, Gets An International Release In The Play Store

There's a new Marvel movie coming out tomorrow in the US. You may have heard about it - it's kind of a big deal. So what better time for a developer to release a new game featuring as many Marvel (comics, not movies) characters as possible. You've got to have something to do while you ignore the repeating video ad for Dave's Discount Family Insurance that plays before the trailers start up, right?

Namco Continues To Not Give A Crap About Tekken, Releases Galaga: Tekken Edition To Prove It

Namco is known for a lot of properties, but many of them have ties back to the 80s and a time period when graphics were measured by the number of colors displayed on-screen at once. Tekken is an edgier, younger franchise in its early 20s that you'd think the company would be proud of. But with the release of Galaga: Tekken Edition, Namco has brought three Tekken-related titles into the Play Store, and none of them actually let you beat people up.

TinyKeep Spruces Up The Tired Dungeon Crawler Genre With Impressive Graphics And Physical Controls

There are a lot of solid dungeon crawlers available in the Play Store - my personal favorite is probably Mage Gauntlet. But whether it's because of the general trend towards the retro visual style or simply because it's easier to implement on mobile, most of them use a top-down 2D pixelated visual style. Not so for TinyKeep. The premiere Android game from developer Digital Tribe bucks those trends for a high-end take on the genre.

DotEmu Brings Ys Chronicles 1, An Update To A Classic 80s Action-RPG, To Android And Android TV

Normally an Android re-release of a decades-old RPG means we're talking about another Squaresoft or Enix port, but this one is digging deep into the annals of Japanese role-playing game history. The Ys series (pronounced... okay, I honestly have no idea how it's pronounced) is a collection of action-RPGs that stretches across four decades and dozens of platforms all the way back to 1987. Ys Chronicles 1, an updated port of the game that began the franchise, is now available on Android from DotEmu.

OUYA Reportedly Puts Itself Up For Sale After Failing To Meet Debt Obligations

A memo from OUYA CEO Julie Uhrman leaked to Fortune says the company has run out of cash and is now frantically seeking a buyer. The memo sent to investors and advisers earlier this month asks for potential buyers to express interest before the end of April, which is a tight timetable insisted upon by OUYA's creditors. This may be the end of the line for one of Kickstarter's early success stories.

Double Fine Brings Crowdfunding Blockbuster 'Broken Age' To Android Ten Months Late

Point-and-click adventure games are experiencing a renaissance at the moment, spurred on in no small part by the ride of touch-based mobile platforms that make a natural fit with the games' simple interfaces. Surely no single adventure game has created more buzz in the last few years than Broken Age, the crowdfunded return to form for Tim Schafer and his team at Double Fine Productions. Today Act 1 of Broken Age is available on the Play Store for ten bucks.

Disney's Infinity Digital Toys Finally Come To Android With The Toy Box 2.0 App

If you're not familiar with Disney Infinity, it's basically the media giant's answer to digital toys like Skylanders, Angry Birds Telepods, and Nintendo Amiibo. The gist is that you buy your kids RFID-enabled collectible statues, they stick 'em on a base station, and then they can use digital versions of those characters inside the Disney Infinity game. Is there a technical reason that a completely digital character needs a $15 hunk of physical plastic to unlock? Why certainly, so long as "technical reason" includes "making Disney a boatload of money."

The Infinity games are available on all major consoles and the PC.

In Wrath Of Obama, The US President Teams Up With Putin To Destroy Lenin's Zombie Army

Over the last couple of years, both Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin have attracted worldwide criticism for the actions of their respective administrations - Obama for unwavering support of sweeping and unconstitutional surveillance of US citizens and allies, and Putin for "secretly" invading a neighboring country and killing a whole bunch of people. But you can say at least one thing in favor of them both: they haven't tapped into dimensions of eldritch power to raise a monstrous army of undead Soviet soldiers.

Not yet, anyway. I honestly wouldn't put it past Putin.

In Wrath of Obama, the latest magnum opus from developer Ankaar (of Fuhrer in LA fame), the leaders of the United States and Russia join forces to oppose Vladimir Lenin.

SNK Playmore has released no shortage of ports into the Play Store, and now it's putting all of them on sale for 99 cents. Well, just the paid ones. Some were already available for free.
