Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got a pair of retro-style Noodlecake games, a unique take on pinball, and a desperately-needed Google TV game.

Wallet-Thumb

Samsung has dropped Samsung Wallet into the Play Store, an app previously only available through Samsung Apps on devices such as the Galaxy S4, Note 2, and Galaxy S3. We first heard about the offering back at this year's Mobile World Congress, and its functionality hasn't changed from what was promised. This remains Samsung's answer to Apple's Passbook, just easier to find than before.

The app functions like a digital wallet, holding coupons, tickets, and gift cards from select partners.

Weekly-Thumb

There is only one Android game available in this week's Humble Weekly Sale, but it's still a bargain to pick up that game at such a discounted price. Uplink normally costs $4.99 in the Play Store, but for the next seven days you can pay whatever price your heart desires. The game pits players in the role of a hacker-for-hire who breaks into various systems and makes off with whatever's valuable.

Nun-Thumb

There isn't much depth to Nun Attack: Run & Gun, but it has crisp visuals, memorable nuns that are armed to the teeth, pick-up-and-play controls, and lots of gore. The game is righteous, dirty, casual fun, and it's now available for everyone in the Play Store. The original Nun Attack attracted millions of downloads, and we expect the sequel will do the same.

The action in Nun Attack: Run & Gun is pretty straightforward, as it's essentially summed up in the game's title.

You can't be expected to carry around a phone with lame apps, right? I mean, what is this? Soviet Russia? Stand up for freedom and capitalism by taking advantage of these sales. After all, selling things at a discount is what keeps us free. 'Murica!

Do you live your life to the fullest? Do you wish you could remember every day of it? Are you doing the opposite, wasting your life away and wishing you could turn things around? Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, you can do all of these things! 1 Second Everyday is a video-recording app that asks users to record just one second of their life everyday, and at the end of the year they will have a six-minute video of how they lived their life that year.

Tracks-Thumb

My Tracks is not one of Google's more well-known offerings, but it's been around for nearly as long as Android has, lurking in the Play Store as a handy resource for Android users who enjoy moving around. Today My Tracks received an update expanding on the usefulness of this location-monitoring service bold enough to tell you exactly what it does in its name. Now when the app shows where you've been, it will provide a more exact and attractive picture.

Android emulator fans, meet you new best friend. Yesterday the DraStic Nintendo DS emulator was published to the Play Store, for the admittedly high price of $7.99. It's not the first DS emulator for Android, but it's far and away the best - the combination of smooth performance (on sufficient hardware) and a stupefying amount of options to adapt the DS ergonomics makes it an easy recommendation.

Most of the existing DS emulators are based on code for Windows programs, making them unbearably slow on Android.

Last week, we heard from Dan Morrill (via Reddit) that "top men" were working on the "sleep of death" issue that caused 4.3 devices to become unresponsive if they fell asleep while streaming from Netflix through the Chromecast.

Tonight, though, it looks like the issue is already fixed with Netflix's update to version 2.4.1. We've been testing the update since it popped up earlier this evening, and haven't experienced a lockup yet.

Remember the "Zap" feature that Motorola and Verizon hyped up during their latest press conference? You could be forgiven if you don't - the local sharing app is a solution looking for a problem, and it's only for the new DROID phones. Like the previous Moto-exclusive apps, Droid Zap has popped into the Play Store long before the launch of the DROID Ultra, DROID MAXX, or DROID Mini.
