[New Game] RE-VOLT 2: Multiplayer Takes The Pint-Sized Racer Online And Into Free-To-Play Territory

Many fans of the original PS1-era RE-VOLT were thrilled when a port was released on Android last year. The portable version included all of the goofy kart-style racing that made the original a sleeper hit... with one exception. Both the remastered version and the free-to-play edition lacked online multiplayer, which was a crucial part of the old game. Well, except for the online part. That's been addressed in RE-VOLT 2: Multiplayer, available now as a free download.

[Update: It's Back As Super Crossfighter] Super Crossfire Is Like Space Invaders Meets Tron, But Faster And With More Shooting

Update: Trademark issues with the name caused the game to be pulled a while back, but now it's available again as "Super Crossfighter." Same game, new name and listing. Radiangames is also discounting its catalog to celebrate, so check that out. The original post below should still be accurate other than the name.

Video games make a lot of assumptions about aliens, mainly that they're going to be two-dimensional and prone to shooting at stuff.

[New Game] PC Favorite Blood Bowl Brings New Meaning To The Term 'Fantasy Football'

I'm so glad the fervor surrounding the World Cup has died down, and now we can get ready for some real football. And by "real football," I mean American Football played by orcs, dwarves, elves, and other things that are probably more comfortable in a Tolkien tome. Blood Bowl is an Android port of a PC game based on a series of pen-and-paper RPGs, themselves based on the Warhammer universe. The computer game presents itself as a sports title, but its mechanics are more like a turn-based strategy RPG.

[New Game] Microsoft Releases Snap Attack Word-Building Puzzle Game Into The Play Store

Now the company is sharing more of its light-hearted side with Android users. Its latest release is a port of a Windows word-building game that goes by the name of Snap Attack.

CyanDelta Updater Adds Support For Paranoid Android To Spare More People From Large Nightly Updates

The CyanDelta Updater app now has support for Paranoid Android, so users of that ROM can join the likes of their CyanogenMod or OmniROM running peers in avoiding that beefy ROM update each night. Keeping up with the nightly Joneses typically requires downloading a sizable update daily, but CyanDelta addresses this situation by only pulling down delta files, which contain just the part of each update that has actually changed. The premise is simple: why download an entire ROM each day if you can simply get what's new?

Pushbullet's Chrome Extension Can Now Push To All Devices At Once, Firefox Support Coming Once Mozilla Speeds Things Along

The Pushbullet folks have pushed out an update not to the Android app, but to the Chrome extension, that expedites the whole file pushing process. Now when the need arrives to push a file to all of the devices under your account, instead of sending them off one at a time, the extension will let you target all the things. This is functionality that the Android app and the Pushbullet website already have, so consider this more of a step towards feature parity across the board.

Samsung's Milk Music Update Adds $3.99 Premium Subscription Option

Samsung pitched Milk Music this spring as a totally free music service exclusive to its devices, but slipped in at the end that it might not be free forever. You can still stream tunes for free without ads (or so the description says), but the new update to Milk adds the expected $3.99 monthly subscription for additional features.
