Niantic updates Pokémon GO to v0.43.3 with minor tweaks and teases Halloween event

I suspect many of you have stopped playing Pokémon GO. Not only is it getting chilly in many areas, but there just isn't a lot to do once you've caught all the common Pokémon. You might be tempted to fire up the game again soon. A new update is rolling out with some welcome improvements, and there's a special Halloween event coming up in a few days.

Solitaire: Decked Out is a delightfully designed, free, and ad-free take on the solitaire game

You would be hard-pressed to find a game as worn out as Solitaire. It's been the default time-waster of Windows users for decades and the topic of many an assistant and receptionist joke. But there's merit to be had in bringing a fresh coat of paint to a done, redone, and overdone concept. That's where Solitaire: Decked Out shines.

It's another take on Solitaire with the same Klondike rules you've grown to know, a 1 or 3-card draw, some achievements for a little bit of competition, pause and resume, unlimited hints and undos, an offline mode, and both landscape and portrait orientations.

Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.16 adds Wither boss, Add-Ons, commands, and more

While I personally don't play much Minecraft anymore, it remains one of the most popular games of all time. In fact, it's currently in second place for best-selling game of all time, only bowing to Tetris. Mojang has released yet another Minecraft: Pocket Edition update, titled "The Boss Update."

First up, this update brings official mod support to Pocket Edition in the form of 'Add-ons.' These Add-ons are essentially textures and JSON files, so developing them is extremely easy. You can even share the Add-ons you make with others.

The Elder Scrolls: Legends card battle game comes to Android in pre-release form

Finally, Bethesda's storied Elder Scrolls series is available on Android! Sort of. If you were hoping to romp through Skyrim or one of the older open world RPGs that PC and console players love, well, keep hoping. The Elder Scrolls: Legends is a card battle game, like Magic: The Gathering, Hearthstone, or any of the hundreds of similar titles in the Play Store. At the moment it's in pre-release (beta), but it's listed as compatible with both phones and tablets running Android 4.0 and higher.

Plants vs. Zombies Heroes brings multiplayer card battles to the casual franchise

Plants vs. Zombies started as a fairly simple lane-based tower defense game, much loved thanks to its tight gameplay and whimsical style. But like any casual game that gets a big following, it's now branching into other genres as well. The Garden Warfare spinoffs on consoles have done well as Team Fortress-style multiplayer shooters, and now PopCap is going after another multiplayer giant: Hearthstone. PvZ Heroes, now out of geo-limited beta, brings semi-random card decks into the eternal undead-rhododendron fight.

[Deal Alert] Perspective correction app SKRWT and Neo Monsters game down to $0.10 in a few countries

Neither of these deals is valid in the US, Canada, and many countries around the world. There. That should help you skip reading this post altogether. But if you're still around, then you probably live in one of the few countries where these $0.10 deals have been frequent in the past few months and you already know the drill. We're talking about 0.10 EUR in France, Italy, Spain, and Germany, GBP 0.10 in the UK, RUB 10 in Russia, and AUD 0.20 in Australia. Other countries are probably unaffected, but it won't hurt to check.

With that out of the way, the two pieces of software you can buy are SKRWT and Neo Monsters.

Four years later, Lara Croft: Guardian Of Light surfaces on the Play Store for everyone

We're not really sure what the story is here. Lara Croft: Guardian of Light has been out since 2010 on iOS, XBox 360, PS3, and PCs, and according to RedmondPie, it was even released on Android in July of 2012. But the Play Store listing that's mentioned in that article, which is this link, doesn't appear to be live anymore. RedmondPie noted back in 2012 that the game was a Sony Ericsson exclusive, but 4 years is a really long time for an exclusive on a game title. Maybe Square Enix forgot to release it for other devices, maybe Sony Ericsson really did have a long-term exclusive deal on it, or maybe the game was pulled from the Play Store a while ago and forgotten until today.

Kingdom: New Lands, a beautiful pixel-art kingdom-builder arrives on NVIDIA SHIELD

The NVIDIA SHIELD is the premier Android TV device currently on the market, but what really sets it apart is the games NVIDIA are able to secure as exclusives on Android (or sometimes just straight-up AAA titles). The next one of these games to come to the SHIELD is Kingdom: New Lands, a kingdom-building game in a cool, cute pixel-art graphical style.
