Some games from the late 90s have not aged well, and that's completely irrespective of the dated visuals of the era. Sensibilities are different now, and we expect different things from a top tier game. Grim Fandango, on the other hand, is still widely regarded as a masterpiece. Now you can play the remastered version on Android courtesy of Double Fine Productions.
Earn to Die 2 is a game where you drive your car through hordes of undead. I don't need to tell you why that is fun. The first one saw over 5 million installs, so many of you already know what this is about.
The sequel still tasks you with driving your way out of a zombie apocalypse. You will speed through brain-eaters in sports cars and mow them down in trucks.
What if you could simply draw a shape in the air and your enemies would be incinerated by fireballs? That'd be quite a trick, but it isn't happening in real life. It totally happens in Spellcrafter, though. This strategic RPG has just launched on Android, and it's completely free of in-app purchases. Just buy it once, and it's yours forever.
A relatively small Google Maps update to v9.8 began rolling out last week, adding batch photo uploads and a way to restrict bookings from showing up in location screens. It turns out there was another secret feature waiting to be shown off. In the latest version, a search for one of four key phrases will pop up results related to your personal bookings. Just try asking for my events, my flights, my hotels, or my reservations to see a short list of personalized results.
There's a new version of Feedly out there, but it looks like a staged rollout (currently a beta channel release). Normally that wouldn't be a huge deal, because it's just a feed reader. However, there's some cool stuff in the v27 update. This one adds Google Now integration, and we've got the APK below.
The once and future king of stylized hyper-violent video games is back. The mobile version of Mortal Kombat X, published by Warner Brothers Interactive and developed by NetherRealm, is now ready to download in the Google Play Store after a lengthy geo-limited soft launch. It features high-end graphics and a 2D fighting system based mostly on taps, swipes, charges, and other gestures, very much like NetherRealm's previous mobile fighters Injustice: Gods Among Us and WWE Immortals.
If the response to the first Episode VII trailer was any indication, pop culture is going to be positively saturated with Star Wars between now and Christmas. If you're in the mood for a take on the original classic trilogy and the other, not-so-classic trilogy, LEGO is happy to oblige.
When you're hitting up the city and need to get from point A to point B, you turn to Uber. When you're looking to transport your kids, you turn to Shuddle. Fortunately, the service is now opening its doors to Android-using families.
Never heard of Shuddle? I understand. That's because it isn't available in your area (or mine either). In what should surprise no one, its drivers only navigate around the San Francisco Bay Area.
