Noodlecake Trolls Game Pirates By Uploading An Impossible Version Of Shooting Stars To Popular Torrent Sites

Hey, game pirates: screw you. Seriously, you're part of the reason it's so hard to find a decent game that isn't packed with $100 in-app purchases. Of course, good old-fashioned greed on the part of game developers is a big part of that, but a demonstrable loss of revenue from relatively easy piracy (a problem on other platforms like Windows) is giving developers little incentive to release conventional premium games for a simple price.

Classic Educational Puzzle Game Zoombinis Comes To Android After A Successful Kickstarter Campaign

Ah, the 90s, when computers were only good for Word Perfect, Minesweeper, and whatever "edutainment" software the school had budgeted for this year. One of the standouts among some pretty decent educational games was Logical Journey of the Zoombinis, a series of puzzles centering around the titular tiny Smurf-like critters. If you have fond memories of that game, or later entries in the series, mosey on over to the Play Store. A new and updated version is now available for download.

This remake of the original game, now simply titled "Zoombinis," follows a successful revival of the series on Kickstarter.

GLTCH Is A Modern Take On Pac-Man That Constantly Tries To Screw With You While You Play It

Remember that one bit in Metal Gear Solid where the boss starts to mess with you, the player, and for a few minutes you wonder if A) the game is broken or B) you've actually gone insane trying to follow a Hideo Kojima plotline? GLTCH is that experience, boiled down to its essentials and turned into a mobile game.

The mechanics of the title are laughably simple: you travel around a TRON-inspired 2D grid grabbing points like a postmodern Pac-Man. Grab the blue stuff, avoid the red stuff - pretty basic. Powerups will let you clear the field, increase your speed, or go invincible.

Farming Simulator 2016 Plows Into The Play Store With Better Graphics, Different Crops, More Vehicles, And New Ways To Navigate The Rural Job Market

I'm from a part of Virginia where you learn different crops not because you're a farmer, but because there isn't much else to look at during the bus ride to school. Similarly, you start to recognize different types of tractors not because you aspire to drive one someday, but because you've spent untold hours stuck behind them on a one lane road.

I moved away as soon as I got the chance, and while I don't yearn to return to such a place, I imagine there are rural expatriates who long to return to the smell of dirt and cow manure.
