When Flappy Bird left the Play Store and Apple's App Store, it left a vacuum. And since it was pulled, that vacuum has been pulling in all kinds of lint, in the form of knockoffs, clones, or games that simply want to use Flappy Bird's success as promotion for their own games.

It would seem, though, that Google (along with Apple) has begun taking steps to prevent the store from becoming overrun with such entries.

It's Valentine's Day, which is a day you and your significant other are supposed to be doing something romantic. Of course, it might also be a day that's reminiscent of past rejections and being the only kid in class who didn't get any valentines. Those jerks. Don't worry, we at Android Police choo-choo-choose you. To prove it, here is our gift of Valentine's Day sales.

If you're a dedicated gamer who's wary of the ever-present freemium model (or an Android blogger who's tired of reaching for his phone for every app in the roundup), there's good news tonight. A recent adjustment of the Google Play Store website will let you know whether an app features in-app purchases or not. It appears just below the Install button, right next to the drop-down list of compatible devices.

This change mirrors the one made to the on-device Play Store back in December.

There's a holiday of sorts coming up tomorrow, but there's still time to get something special for your significant other. There happen to be some apps and games on sale. That'll do it, right? Actually, that's terrible advice – don't do that. You can still check out these sales for completely unrelated reasons, though.

The Ouya's Tegra 3-based innards are getting a little old, but the console is finally starting to get a respectable game library and the controller has been tweaked since launch. Okay, maybe you don't want to spend $99 on it, but how about $85 with some free games?

HitmanGo-Thumb

Square Enix's Deus Ex: The Fall was a major entry in the Deus Ex franchise tailored for touchscreen devices. It may not have the complexity of its console brethren, but it made a very valiant effort. Now the company has announced Hitman Go, but this time, the mobile version of the game is going to be quite a bit different from the AAA one being developed for televisions. You see, Hitman Go is going to be a turn-based strategy game.

Who's ready for a new Angry Birds game? If you're not, you might just want to ignore the gaming news for the next month or so. After a tepid critical response from kart racer Angry Birds Go, the next entry in the series was revealed as a short social post leading to a small sub-site of AngryBirds.com. The title will be Angry Birds Stella.

According to the Angry Birds Wiki (of course there's an Angry Birds Wiki), 'Stella' is the name of the Pink Bird whose only real job before now was playing Princess Leia in Angry Birds Star Wars.
