Find A Crew, Find A Job, And Keep Flying In Space Trade-Em-Up Cosmonautica, Now Out Of Early Access

When you stare into the infinite void of space, salted with stars so vast and distant that they defy the human mind to imagine them, you can't help but wonder at the scope and majesty of the universe. Then you start to wonder how to make some money out of it.

Cosmonautica is the latest in a long line of space trading sims, the stellar ancestors of the old "pirate math" games from the 80s. And yes, buying and selling goods across star systems serves as the core of the game, with profits enabling you to upgrade and arm your ship, hire new crew, and expand your business.

Kappsule's Latest Game 'Battle Golf' Is A Free Way To Defeat Menacing Creatures With A Solid Stroke

Golf balls have much in common with projectile weapons. They're small. They're shaped like musket balls. Sometimes they cut through the air too quickly for the eye to follow. You could do a lot of damage with one, if you think about it.

Developer Kappsule, creator of Wrassling, apparently has. Battle Golf is the result. In this not-quite-a-sports-game, you swing a club at a ball just like you would in a virtual golf course. But when you land that hole-in-one, you're not just showing off your skills—you're doing battle.

See that blowhole at the top of the angry whale? If you drop enough golf balls in there, you can get it to leave you alone.

Snowball 2.0 is out now, and the app has apparently gotten a full overhaul - it's essentially a completely different thing now. Instead of being a messaging client, Snowball is now a full-featured (and damn good-looking) notification center. Check it out:

If I said this didn't look pretty useful, I'd be lying. Don't get me wrong - Android's notification panel has come a long way and is already pretty great, but there's always room for improvement, right?
