How about a little boost on this Monday morning? Picking up some new apps and games at drastically reduced prices might provide just the kick you need to attack the day like an unstoppable nuclear-powered robot tiger that shoots lightning from its eyes. Or something less outlandish... but these apps are still on sale either way.
Robot Unicorn Attack's original web iteration was a moderately funny joke that morphed into an amazingly addictive game, and then morphed into a similarly insanity-fueling mobile game.
Building on the success of the original, Adult Swim Games has made Robot Unicorn Attack 2, which just recently made its Android debut and, happily, seems much more stable and playable than the buggy original.
Rather than trying to explain the sheer madness of RUA 2, we'll defer to Adult Swim's promotional trailer.
It is once again time to discuss our favorite games from the past month. As usual, plenty of great games popped up in the Play Store last month, but we'll just be taking a look at five, with a list of honorable mentions to follow.

This edition focuses only on new games. The app roundup is coming up soon.

Pacific Rim comes to theaters tomorrow, and I'm already planning my route. Giant robots, Godzilla-style monsters, and a complete absence of Shia LaBeouf - what more could you want from a summer blockbuster? How about an official Android game... or two? The "full" Pacific Rim game comes from Reliance Games, a developer that tends to specialize in licensed titles. It's not to be confused with the other official game, which is more of an AR gimmick.
Birds crap on things. It's an unavoidable fact of life. A driver who hasn't walked out to a vehicle coated in bird feces is a driver who hasn't had their license for very long. But those birds can't be allowed to get the only enjoyment out of this experience. 2K Games' Turd Birds gives us a chance to experience what it's like to be on the feathered end of a frosty white bombing run.
Rovio Stars' Tiny Thief is the story of an adorable bite-sized Robin Hood. The entire world is corrupt, with palace guards, rogue pirates, and shameless cooks hoarding their wealth to themselves. They even trap innocent little forest creatures for no reason other than to harass them. The only way to stand up for the little guys, gals, and vermin of the kingdom is to steal from the rich what, presumably, isn't theirs.
Sprinkle attracted quite the following when it debuted in 2011, using its realistic water physics to show people what Tegra 2-equipped tablets were capable of. Players controlled a wooden water cannon mounted on a crane and fought fires across a diverse assortment of stages, with water pushing rocks and giant blocks of ice around in order to save houses in hard to reach places. The fire itself was as pretty to watch as it was a pain in the rear, spreading from house to house as gamers discovered that maybe, just maybe, they weren't cut out to be firemen.
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 an incredibly faithful flight simulator, graphics-heavy additions to the dungeon crawler and twin-stick shooter genres, a game that in no way is inspired by Nyan Cat, and a stylishly simple puzzler.
