[Deal Alert] The Excellent 'This War Of Mine' Game Comes To Phones, Celebrates With A 50% Discount To $6.99 In Many Countries

Do you want to bust through doors, fire dozens of machine guns, and kill all the baddies? Then This War of Mine isn't what you're looking for. War heroes aren't just the fighters, they're also the survivors who find themselves thrown into a bleak world and have to scrape for meat, find a shelter, protect each other, and just try to get through each day unharmed and alive. That's the aspect of war that This War of Mine taps into, and it does so with surprising depth and sensibility for a "game". Our own Michael was very impressed when he reviewed it.

Google Has Released Test DPC To Help Developers Try Out Apps With Android For Work

Android isn't all about fun and games. Sometimes you have to use that phone or tablet (but probably phone) for work. Before that, someone has to develop apps for use in a corporate environment. Google launched Android for Work earlier this year, and it's up to other folks to make the apps.

Well, Google has recently released an app to make that whole ordeal go by more smoothly. It's known simply as Test DPC.

Crimsonland Is Basically Starcraft As A Top-Down Shooter, Complete With Four Player Local Co-Op

Remember those Terran levels in the original Starcraft, where your entire planet was being overrun with H.R. Geiger knock-offs and all hope seemed lost? Remember how you wished you could jump down into your screen, strap on a suit of power armor, and serve up hot lead to all comers instead of directing troops like an omnipotent general? Well since Blizzard is never (never) going to give us Starcraft Ghost and Microsoft won't let Halo out of the Xbox playpen, Crimsonland might just be the closest you can get to that experience.

Adventure Game 'Lost Echo' Gives You A Girlfriend To Find And A Gorgeous Sci-Fi World To Explore For $2.99 With No In-App Purchases

At first glance, Lost Echo is the story of a guy looking for a woman. But there's something else that stands out during that glance. The game is beautiful. Despite originally launching on iDevices two years ago, these are still some of the best visuals you can find in the Play Store.

Soda Dungeon Comes To The Play Store Hoping To Lure Brave Heroes With A Bubbly Drink

 

Most RPGs would have you believe that the key to success is bravery and enough dedication to hone your skills. The real secret, it turns out, is soda. That's right. Consuming the right beverage provides all the liquid courage necessary to journey into the nearest dungeon and grab all the loot.

That's what Soda Dungeon tells me anyway. The well-received title from developer Armor Games has made its way into the Play Store.

LinkedIn Finally Gets A Material Design Makeover In Its 4.0 Update

LinkedIn's main app rarely gets significantly updated. It has added a few new features here and there over the past years, but it has looked the same since time immemorial. Very Holo, very grey, very Ice Cream Sandwich. You can finally bid adieu to that old design though, since version 4.0 is ready to coat your smartphone's screen with fresh animations, a cleaner design, more white, better use of space, and some nicer transitions and animations.

LinkedIn's design reshuffled and reorganized the app too. Gone is the side drawer, replaced by a blue bar at the top with icons for each tab. Swipe left and right to switch between your feed, profile, messages, connections, and search.

[Deal Alert] Deep Dungeons Of Doom Is Only $0.10 On The Play Store, And Heavily Discounted In Many Countries

Deep Dungeon of Doom usually costs $3.99. That's not a bad price to pay for a fun side-scrolling dungeon crawler with different protagonists — crusader, witch, and mercenary — and plenty of levels that throw you back to the good'ol times of gaming with 8-bit graphics and nostalgic sound effects. It's even much more acceptable after the game was updated to remove all in-app purchases. Now all gold has to be earned in order to buy upgrades and all revive tokens have to be won fair and square.

[Update: Multiple Grade Prices Are Live] Maps v9.17: Prices For Diesel, Midgrade, And Premium Are Coming For Gas Stations, Hotels Will Gain List Of Amenities [APK Teardown]

Offline navigation and search (and a few other things) are now legitimate features in Google Maps, even if most of us can't use them until our individual accounts are blessed by Mountain View. I get it, I'm in the same boat. Even though there are quite a few additions in this update, it seems that a couple of things didn't quite make the cut; but there are bits and pieces that show they're in the works. A teardown shows that we're probably going to see prices for different types of fuel, rather than just regular.

Digitally Imported Radio takes music and digitally imports it into your mobile device of choice. It's more practical than toting around analog media. Take your phone for example. You don't want to try sticking non-digital stuff in that.

Apple Music Takes A Cross-Platform Trip To The Play Store

Today is the day: after publishing a cheeky "switch to iOS" app and a Beats speaker management app, Apple Music is now on the Play Store.
