When you're a space marine, getting captured by aliens is a real drag. You don't get to shoot stuff and you have to slave away in the anathema mines! In Dynamite Jack, you get to bust out of the mines with just a flashlight and an ample supply of bombs. This is a top-down 2D action game, but there's a prominent stealth component that looks very cool.
There are 28 official levels to complete in Dynamite Jack filled with guards, robots, and other hazards.
The Google Keep Android app is out, and it is way more functional than the sparse web site. Allow me to show you around.
There are two different views to Keep, a multi-column view and a single-column view. Multi-column is "pretty typography mode" and single column is all business. You can switch views with the menu button.
There's about a million different ways to take notes: plain text, a checklist, a voice note (which transcribes and saves the audio), or you can take a picture with the camera.
"Shoot the robots, kill them all, in the park, at your house, or even at the mall.
Shoot them high, and shoot them low, shoot them stop, and shoot them go. Shoot them here and shoot them there, you can shoot them anywhere!"-Nurse Seuss (Dr. Seuss' lesser-known cousin, for obvious reasons)
If you remember that childhood story and developed a deep-seated hatred for robots as a result, the time has come to Shoot Many Robots.
Google released an update to the news reader it hasn't abandoned today, adding a bunch of support for audio-centric features. Playlists are now available for editions that contain audio content, and users will be able to play, pause, and jump forward or backward in the playlist. There are even status bar controls added for when audio is playing, so you don't have to sit staring at a blank playback page while listening.
Gamers, players, and couch potatoes of the Android Entertainment Force. You are about to embark upon a great download, toward which the developers have striven these many months. The eyes of the Play Store are upon you. The hopes and prayers of war shooter-loving players everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers in arms on the IAP fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the microtransaction war machine, the elimination of nickel-and-diming tyranny over the oppressed peoples of the Android ecosystem, and security for ourselves in a free-to-play world.
There's nothing better than finding one of those rare apps that seems to do the impossible. Every time I try a piece of software, I have a tiny hope that it will be so good that I'll want to describe it as magic. As a photo editor, Handy Photo is definitely invoking some kind of witchcraft. This impressive app comes from ADVA Soft, the brilliant team responsible for TouchRetouch.
Since the dawn of mobile gaming, a handful of genres have struggled with the transition to tiny screens, while still keeping usable controls. Oil Rush is Unigine's attempt at one of the most daunting categories, real-time strategy. The game doesn't come with just another slightly different control scheme, it's equipped with a full storyline, high end graphics, and voice actors! Oh yeah, and a pretty high price tag...
Set during a post-apocalyptic war in which a nuclear weapon has melted the ice caps and flooded Earth, the remaining inhabitants fight to control any last remaining oil reserves.
Did you enter 2013 with visions of eating healthily, becoming more active, and staying fit? Not so easy a few months down the line, is it? The good news is that Jawbone may have just provided you with that extra boost that you needed, as the UP app is finally available for Android.
On the surface, the Jawbone UP wristband is comparable to the Nike+ Fuelband, although with the app in tow it allows you to take a more holistic view, tracking your sleep patterns, looking at how you eat every day, and how much exercise you do.
Facebook may have circumvented the Play Store for one recent update, but it looks like the company decided it would take a more official route for a small bump that just hit. In this version of everyone's "favorite" social network, you'll be able to change your profile pic, hide stories and report spam in the News Feed, and get to group messages in fewer taps. Exciting.
