[New Game] Scotchy Scotch Toss Stars Anchorman Ron Burgundy Blabbering As You Fling Ice Cubes Into His Glass Of Scotch

There's a sequel to 2004's Anchorman about to hit theaters in a matter of weeks, and on the off chance you have yet to see a commercial for it, Paramount Digital Entertainment has dropped a movie-themed game into the Play Store to get you pumped. As anchorman Ron Burgundy puts it, Scotchy Scotch Toss "combines the skill of tossing ice cubes into a glass with the art of not moving." If that sounds exciting, then you fit precisely into the demographic Paramount is trying to target.

The gameplay is as simple as it sounds. Players fling an ice cube in hopes of landing it into Ron's glass of scotch.

Sony SmartWatch 2 App Updated With Fast Scrolling Notifications, Auto-Brightness, Stopwatch, And More Watch Faces

Sony has been surprisingly quiet on the smartwatch front since launching its SmartWatch 2. But now that the Galaxy Gear is gaining steam (or at the very least, getting a hell of a lot of advertising airtime) they've set out to put a little extra oomph in their Xperia-styled digital watch. A quick update to the Android app on the Google Play Store has given the device a few expanded capabilities.

First of all, yes, you get some new watch faces for your watch. Sadly Sony declined to actually show any of the new watchfaces in the screenshots, and we don't have a hardware unit to test, so we'll have to take their word for it.

Fleksy Invisible Keyboard Leaves Beta, Available To All Interested Parties In Play Store

If you've ever looked at your Android keyboard and thought, "Man, that thing is just too opaque," then this is a big day for you. Fleksy keyboard has left beta and is available for download in Google Play. This alternative input method uses aggressive autocorrect and gestures to do away with much of the keyboard UI – even making it completely transparent.

Fleksy seems to be one of those things that either works for you or doesn't – Not a lot of middle ground. You just start typing, and even if you completely miss some letters, Fleksy is often able to figure it out.

[New App] Quip, A Mobile Word Processor That Puts People First, Launches For Android

Traditionally word processors have tasked themselves with producing nice, printable documents. Mobile versions have followed up with the unenviable task of replicating this functionality on much smaller screens. Quip throws this entire concept out of the window, instead creating a writing experience built for the ground up for mobile devices. The team released an alpha version over the summer, but it was little more than a demo of the iOS version of the app. Now the full version is available, and it looks right at home on Android devices.

[New Game] Dokuro Is A Platformer About An Animated Skeleton, A Princess, And Charcoal

The PlayStation Network has become a surprisingly rich source of ports for the Google Play Store. Take Dokuro: it's a beautiful 2D platformer that turned more than a few heads when it premiered as a downloadable title for the PS Vita last year. Now it's available on Android for a single buck, and if you're a fan of platformers with both creative gameplay and gorgeous visuals, you should definitely check it out.

The basic gist is that you're guiding a princess through a forbidding castle, kind of like a dimensionally challenged version of ICO. You are a skeletal minion of the dark lord who's kidnapped her, but you're helping her escape because of the power of love, devotion, and possibly ponies.

[New Game] Hack, Jump, Slash, And Repeat In The Latest Release From Crescent Moon Games 'Clash Of Puppets'

Clash of Puppets may sound like it has a lot in common with Clash of Clans, but that's not the case at all. In fact, this game comes from a completely different developer. Clash of Puppets isn't a strategy game, nor does it have multiplayer options. Instead, Crescent Moon Games' latest title is a 3D platformer filled with plenty of hacking, loads of slashing, and even some blasting.

This isn't a 2D platformer with 3D visuals, but a top-down brawler with perhaps more combat than jumping. Enemy puppets throw themselves upon you, only to die in light-hearted puffs of smoke. The game contains three worlds filled with action-packed levels and dangerous weapons, but if that isn't enough, there's also an infinite survival mode that challenges you to fight for as long as you can.
