You know what collectible card battle games are missing? Math. Well, that's not strictly true: your standard Magic clone includes a lot of math, but it usually doesn't go much further than counting. The new Android game Calculords is a mixture of the standard card battle formula, lane-based strategy, and some grade school arithmetic. It made quite a splash on iOS a few months ago, and it looks like the Android translation is just about perfect.

The creators of Organ Trail: Director's Cut who brought us the wonder of "delicious Apple 2 pixel art" combined with the nostalgia of the Oregon Trail and zombies, have done it again, introducing Max Gentlemen to the Play Store.
Max Gentlemen is an "arcade style extreme manners simulator" in which you'll strive to prove your gentlemanliness by stacking hats. On your head. Also the hats can jump to avoid passing beer glasses, low-flying birds, or other such obstacles.
Everything stored on computers takes up data (this is going somewhere, I promise). We humans, being the social creatures that we are, feel compelled to share things with others. This biological inclination didn't go away with our relatively new obsession with digital things, so we now find ourselves regularly wrestling with the issue of getting data that's stored on one of our devices onto someone else's. WeTransfer and its new Android app can help with that.
Listen up if you're particularly fond of classic 2D platformers, old-school fighters, or general nostalgia. SNK Playmore is currently offering all of its paid games for just 99 cents apiece. For one title, The Rhythm of Fighters, this is the usual price. For the nine other releases available, this is a discount of roughly 75%, as they usually go for around $3.99. That means you could go through the list and get the full collection for the same amount three games would usually cost.
I'm going to say some things about Pac-Man Friends out of the gate that will make some of you want nothing to do with Pac-Man or his pals. This game is free-to-play, and it contains in-app purchases. Three cherries cost 99 cents, a bundle of hearts go for $4.99, so on and so forth. But if you're skilled enough to get by without these power-ups, you don't have to spend any money to get enjoyment out of this experience.
