The weekend is upon us again, and that means it's time to unwind and forget your troubles. You can pick up some apps and games to help with that process if you like, and we even have some deals for you.
The new re-reboot of the Superman franchise is getting a lot of buzz, and now you can get in on the fun with the official Man of Steel game. It's arriving right on time, in fact. Can you save the world in this new game, or will you lose interest and go on Reddit or something while General Zod conquers Earth? Stop being so lazy, Superman.
From all appearances, this title seems like yet another Infinity Blade clone with swiping combat and pretty graphics.

Fans of Gru and his yellow henchmen have had to wait three years for a sequel to the 2010 animated blockbuster, and while Despicable Me 2 is expected to hit theaters early next month, we all know the last month of anticipation is the hardest. Lucky for fans, Gameloft has dropped Despicable Me: Minion Rush into the Play Store to help that last month go by just a tad easier. While this licensed title may not feature the most original gameplay out there, it does give players a chance to see those adorable minions in all their charming glory.
Rage of the Gladiator was a big hit on that other platform, and it arrived on Android back in March. However, it was only available to European residents at the time, with a global release "coming soon." The game is now universally available, so prepare for battle.

While the game itself doesn't look like much, it does get one thing right: the main characters (Colonel O'Neill, Colonel Carter, Teal'c, and Dr.
Remember that children's book, Harold and the Purple Crayon? This is essentially that book made into a game, minus the toddler, and plus a lot of physics elements. Crayon Physics Deluxe has been making fans on the PC and iOS for years, and yesterday it finally hit the Play Store (after slumming it on the Galaxy Note 10.1 for a few months). The objective is to roll a 2D ball over a star, but that's like saying the point of baseball is to hit a ball with a stick: There's a lot more to it.
The E3 gaming show is usually about showing off the latest and greatest in gaming, but Hyperkin is sticking to the classics. This company has been working on the mother of all classic consoles, and a playable prototype version is on the floor at E3.
