If you've not heard of Abalone, it's one of the most amazing - yet simple - board games in decades. It won "Game of the Decade" at the Cannes Games Festival 15 years ago, and has been a massive hit since its debut in 1990. The objective of Abalone is simple: push six of your opponent's marbles off of the board.

The rules of the game are very simple, and take only a few minutes to learn.

Yesterday, Google added support for audio playlists and media controls to Google Currents. We thought this sounded like a pretty neat feature, and, hey! We're on Google Currents! So why not put two and two together? Today we updated our Currents edition to include a feed of our audio podcast and it's actually kind of beautiful. Take a look:

2013-03-21 13.56.32 2013-03-21 13.56.44 2013-03-21 13.56.57

It was possible to add audio before, but it wasn't quite this nice.

The highly popular VNC tool TeamViewer has updated its Android viewer client with a slew of new features, including one users have likely been clamoring for from day one: native touch control.

The latest version of TeamViewer for Android now supports a brand-new input method for tablets - direct touch gestures. No more moving the cursor around to get the job done, just tap and drag to your heart's content, pointer-free.

How does driving a stick-figure car through a soft jelly world in a platformer-meets-racer adventure sound? I was intrigued, as well. Disney's Jelly Car 3 is the third installment in the malleable mashup, and seems to be the most polished yet. There's a brand-new car customization system (note: the customizations don't do anything), a 'ghost racing' mode to compete against the world's best times (or just your friends), and 50 levels to squish your way through.

Do you like sword fighting giant spiders, expansive worlds to explore, pickpocketing items from strangers, avoiding jail time, riding horses, sneaking around, gathering loot, switching from first- to -third-person at the tap of a button, choice-based questing systems, ragdoll physics, and ancient lore? Then I can think of two games you might be really interested in! One of them is Ravensword: Shadowlands!

The game is set in a fantasy landscape and sends the player on a mission to "solve the mysteries of the Kingdom of Tyreas." Presumably, these are different mysteries from the ones in the Kingdom of Aralon, which were addressed in Aralon: Sword and Shadow, a previous game from the same developer.

The Nintendo Wii suffered throughout its life from a lack of good games. The Conduit aimed to bring a solid first-person shooter experience to that console a few years back, and now the game has been ported to Android as a Tegra exclusive. Can a Wii game from 2008 offer the kind of experience we've come to expect on Android? Let's find out.

Gameplay And Controls

In this game you play as Secret Service agent Michael Ford, who is recruited by a shadowy government agency to take out a supposed terrorist group.

If you've still not tried one of the best ambient "chill-out" games out there, Osmos HD, and you don't use the Amazon App Store, now's your chance. The game's developers at Hemisphere Games have put Osmos HD on sale for just $0.99 (that's two dollars less than its normal $2.99 price) in celebration of the vernal equinox today. The sale will last for an un-quantified "few days."

For those who haven't heard of Osmos, it's an ambient game that could almost be considered a classic for the Android platform.

The creators of Sporos (which found a place in our top seven games list from February) today released their latest creation – Alien Hive. The game is based on the familiar "match three" dynamic, but don't be fooled – Alien Hive isn't just another Bejeweled clone. Hive adds several interesting gameplay elements that put a new twist on the genre, keeping it challenging and entertaining. Best of all, the game can be played at your own pace – there's no pressure to be super speedy about swapping tiles.

The Google Play redesign is very real.

We've managed to secure a copy and we're going to extract every possible ounce of info out of it.

Sadly, we aren't allowed to distribute it - we have to honor the request of the person who scored us a copy. Sorry! We will tell you everything we can about it, though.

The main screen is, well, broken. That makes navigating the app a little difficult.
