Do you take your retro gaming seriously? Like, 1990 isn't actually retro seriously? Then you're in for a welcome bit of news: the 1983 classic Lode Runner has been ported to Android (yes, it's legit / authorized).

The classic puzzle platformer has been on iOS for some time, but is just now landing on our OS of choice. Unfortunately, I can't vouch for just how committed the port is - the developer couldn't even be bothered to generate Android-specific screenshots, and that's rarely a good omen.

If there's one thing to say about the team behind Dolphin browser, it's that they can't be discouraged. Despite the availability of Chrome and Chrome Beta for Android, Dolphin is still going strong – and things like today's update are likely the reason.

The update, which bumps Dolphin up to 9.2.0, brings three fairly major features: one-tap sharing, cross-devices sync (called Dolphin Connect), and built-in Evernote support. But what does that actually mean?

The original Temple Run was a huge hit on Android when it came out, following an already successful splash on iOS. Now, Imangi Studios is hoping it can pull the same feat off again with Temple Run 2. The title just launched on Apple's App Store today. Don't adjust your television sets, folks. Partly because you're probably not reading this on a TV so adjusting it would be silly and partly because, yes, this is still an Android blog.

Wind-Up Knight was one of the first truly great platformers on Android, and now developer Robot Invader is taking on puzzles with a new game called Rise of the Blobs. It's a little bit like a fusion of Tetris and Collapse, but with food. It is up to you to hold off the ever expanding army of blobs as they seek to (presumably) consume your marshmallow hero. I mean, you almost can't blame them – he looks so tasty.

If you're a fan of action games and nostalgic 8-bit throwbacks, then OrangePixel's new title Gunslugs should be right up your alley. Featuring the NES-style graphics that OP is known for, alongside non-stop bullet-blazing action, Gunslugs in an adrenaline-fueled homage to the 80s action heroes of old.

Gunslugs also throws a unique spin on the traditional platformer: it generates the levels randomly. Basically, that means levels will appear in a different order every time you play.

Google unleashed a handful of updates to various apps this afternoon on the Play Store, though don't get too excited - none are particularly groundbreaking.

YouTube for Google TV

Most significant was an update to Google TV, which brings the app to version 1.6, adding a 'simplified player screen,' and the ability to send YouTube videos from your phone or tablet directly to your TV.

Play Movies & TV

Next up was the Play Movies & TV app, but we're not even sure what's changed, because there's no changelog yet (the current one about availability in 11 countries is old).

Do you use AirDroid? You should. It's a fantastic piece of software. While Google tends to prefer using cloud services to manage your data, there is no central app that can access and change anything on your device. This app fills that need and does so amazingly. It's so great that we gave away 20 invites to the v2 beta recently. Now, the invite-only requirement is gone and it's available to anyone who can download it.

You may have gathered from one or two of our previous posts that there are some Starcraft fanatics lurking around the offices of Android Police (and shouting things like "power overwhelming!" from the editor's desk). So when we saw what's basically a Metroid-style side-scroller apparently starring everyone's favorite autonomous crystal harvester, we had to jump on it. Gene Effect doesn't star an actual Probe, but there's plenty of potential in the game even so, especially if you're a fan of exploration and eye candy.

dscloud

Last week, Synology released a couple of new beta apps – DS Download and DS Video – for owners of its NAS boxes. Now it's added a third app, called DS Cloud, that allows Synology NAS owners to sync files to their Android device for offline viewing.

DS Cloud seems quite useful, as it lets you select certain files and folders you want to sync, as well as per-folder behavior, which basically ensures you always have the most recent version on your device (I wish Dropbox could do this!).

MediaFire is definitely one of the more popular cloud-based file sharing services out there, and until now, there wasn't exactly a clean way to access it via Android. Today MediaFire put an end to that problem, and released its official Android app for all of your gee-bee-devouring needs.

The app is fairly simple (and not exactly pretty), but works just like you'd expect - you can browse your MediaFire files in the cloud, upload new ones, and view docs, spreadsheets, presentations, video, and listen to audio.
