[New Game] Warner Bros Releases Pacific Rim: Kaiju Battle, An Augmented Reality Beat 'Em Up And Photo App

Pacific Rim is going to be in theaters soon, and it's got giant robots and monsters fighting each other. You know what else has giant robots and monsters fighting each other? Pacific Rim:Kaiju Battle, which is now on Android. This is an augmented reality fighting game that lets you put a miniature cityscape with monsters on any flat surface. It actually works, too.

The game itself is a simple button masher. There are two attack buttons and two block buttons. All you really have to do is attack faster than the other monster. You can do battle as any of the three monsters or three robots.

Falcon Pro Updates To v2.0.4 Outside Of The Play Store, Now Supports A Way To Blatantly Skirt Twitter's Token Limit

Falcon Pro users have had a front-row seat to quite a bit of drama over the last few months. The events started when the app struck its 100,000 user token limit, which lead to the developer to reset user tokens in an effort to reallocate them to active users. Eventually, all of the tokens were consumed again, in part to the addition of multi-account support, and another "reset" was announced. It turns out that the plan was to quietly spread some people to a brand new API key. Unfortunately, Twitter blocked most users from signing in with the new key, and Joaquim Verge, the developer of Falcon Pro, pulled it from the Play Store until a better solution could be found.

Barnes & Noble Nook App Updated To Version 3.4: High-Resolution Magazines, Re-Sizeable Book Illustrations, And More

Barnes & Noble may be toning down its Android tablet business, but they'd still really appreciate it if you bought some books from them. To that end, they've updated the Nook Android app to version 3.4, with a focus on better magazine browsing and book images. Now Android tablets with a resolution of 1280x720 or higher (which should be pretty much everything made in the last year, barring some off-brand hardware) have access to bigger, sharper HD scans of magazines.

New magazines have been added to the library as well: WIRED, Vanity Fair, GQ, Glamour, and SELF. These "HD" magazines are apparently not available on smartphones - I couldn't see them in the store with my RAZR M, while some other magazines were available for purchase and subscription.

Redbox Instant Updated To v1.2, Finally Works On Rooted Devices

Back when Redbox Instant first hit Android, many users were a bit upset that Redbox and Verizon decided to shun rooted users by blocking the app's video playback on rooted devices. Updates came and went, but nothing was done to correct this [rather ridiculous] error. Until now.

The app was just updated to v1.2, which "changes the way [it] handles rooted devices." Considering the changelog wasn't very clear about what that means, we decided to jump in and check it out for ourselves. In a nutshell, the app now allows video playback on rooted devices, and just gives a warning during the signup process:

Bombcats Special Edition Review: More Fun Than A Mountain of Catnip

The backstory in Bombcats is bizarre. The felines in this particular title have found that their offspring are imprisoned in glowing blue bubbles. Now, the most rational course of action might be to calmly find a way to get the kittens safely out. But no... this is Bombcats, and these cats blow up to break their kittens out of their prisons. Of course, the kittens also blow up. I'm really not sure what you accomplish in Bombcats, but it's pretty fun.

Fuzzy Gameplay And Controls

Right from the start, I got a strong Angry Birds vibe from Bombcats. It's possible to make a reasonably okay game by aping a massive cultural sensation, but it's probably not going to be a good game.

Upcoming YouTube Update To Bring Multitasking Interface, Background Audio Is A Possibility Too

While Samsung has been dipping its toes into the single-screen multitasking world, Google has yet to do the same. According to noted Android and Google tipster ryan_socio (Ryan Matthews, not his real name), that's about to change. Ryan posted a message to The Verge's social user section, detailing an upcoming version of the YouTube Android app that will let users watch videos and interact with the rest of Android at the same time.

According to Ryan's description of the current test app, you'll start a video using the familiar interface, then send it to a smaller window via a swipe button in the corner.

[New Game] Pocket League Story 2 Adds Multiplayer To Kairosoft's Formula, Free With $4 IAP For Full Game

Kairosoft is one of the most dependably solid Android game developers out there. While their titles tend to have a lot in common, those who appreciate the city builder/RPG formula love it to death. The company's latest title is Pocket League Story 2, which builds on the eponymous original with a handful of new features, most notably the ability to play soccer games (well, sort of) against real-world opponents.

unnamed (24)

Here's the gist: you're the owner of a brand-new soccer team, represented by tiny pixelated players and managers. You'll have to recruit and train top-notch players to advance in the league. To do that, you also have to build up your facilities in a manner not dissimilar to old-school Sim City titles.
