Turd-Thumb

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.

An arcade and console classic, Crazy Taxi is a game that needs little introduction. After spending quite some time on iOS, you can finally live out the glory days of Dreamcast chauffeuring shenanigans on Android.

$5 appears to net you the full Crazy Taxi experience, conveniently placed ramps and all. I'm almost at a loss for words writing about this game, because I am struggling not to just start playing right now.

You've played Angry Birds. Regardless of how you feel about that insanely popular title, there's no denying that Rovio is one of the largest names in mobile gaming. That's why it was a big deal when they announced their Rovio Stars initiative to publish titles produced by third-party developers. Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage was the first game to come from this program, but it is currently only available for iOS.

Retroid

Retroid is Arkanoid-gaming done right. Never heard of arkanoid? Think Breakout, but made in Japan. Retroid takes Arkanoid and smothers it in a coat of gorgeous retro graphics. No, I don't mean pixelated - well done or otherwise. These are bright modern visuals dishing out shapes and colors in a manner that is as trippy today as it has ever been.

This game is about as pick up and play as it gets.

Today we've got a big-budget (but free-to-play) zombie FPS, a game in which Snoop Dogg teaches you the ways of kung-fu fighting, a new version of a game that really didn't need a new version, and an infamous Flash game/exercise in frustration.

The Lone Ranger has been a real flop for Disney thus far, and I'm sure I know why. The company was late to debut an Android game to coincide with the release. Many of this summer's other successful blockbusters - Man of Steel, Monsters University, and Despicable Me 2 - all had games that predated or matched their theater debuts. While this form of marketing has never had any effect on me, it's apparently what the masses want, and Disney has since resolved the issue.
