Can you believe the week is only half over? You probably need a break after battling through the first half, and we've got just the thing – reasonably priced apps and games. Is there anything sweeter?
Humanity came out on top in the previous Anomaly games, but apparently that was just the beginning – a test invasion, if you will. The alien towers have returned with a vengeance in Anomaly 2 and the world is a little worse for wear. In fact, we kind of lost the war. This is the backdrop for Anomaly 2, which employs the same reverse tower defense gameplay that made the original games so much fun.
Everybody loves proprietary gaming platforms that make you sign in to play Far Cry, right? Hello? Well they're here to stay, whether you like them or not (thanks EA, Microsoft, Valve, and the rest of 'em) and Ubisoft is trying to make its proprietary service a little less awful with the official Uplay app. It's available now to gamers on the Play Store.
Give Ubi some credit: at least the app looks good.
The Humble Bundle folks are at it again – offering up excellent games and supporting charity at the same time. This time it's the Humble Mobile Bundle 3, and that means six – yes six – Android games are on sale, and there are two big debuts. You get to name your own price with the Humble Bundle, but you have to pay above the average to unlock two of them.
It's finally here, folks: the most-anticipated agrarian simulation game of the year is now available on the Google Play Store. If you wile away the lonely Kansas nights with the latest Tractor Supply Company catalogs, if you've ever found yourself checking out a ball hitch on eBay, if the words "crop rotation" get you hot and bothered, then this is your game.
"Tired of farming alone?" asks the Farming Simulator 2014 trailer, as if it didn't already know.
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 Joe Dever game from the mind of Joe Dever (presented by Joe Dever), a puzzler with a Geometry Wars visual style, and a free-to-play strategy game.
Gameloft introduced us to GT Racing 2 two months ago with a strange focus on Mercedes-Benz cars, but now the full game is available with a full complement of manufacturers. GT Racing 2 is a free download in the Play Store for devices running Android 2.3 or higher. You'll need just under a gigabyte of free storage to download it (not to mention a decent connection).
GT Racing is Gameloft's take on a racing simulator, a la Gran Turismo or Forza, as opposed to the more cartoony style of Asphalt.
American football fans, sit this one out. Sega's latest game is geared towards the other kind of football, the one that, you know, people actually play with their feet. This popular series turns soccer fans into managers of their own professional club. From the confines of their Android device, players can manage most aspects of running a team for $9.99. Yeah, that's a bit pricey for a mobile title, but calling the shots doesn't come cheap, even virtually.
