[New Game] Bug Heroes 2 Raids Android With A Blend Of Tower Defense And Third-Person Action

Bug Heroes 2 is the sequel to an iOS game that never made it over to Android, so bear with me as I get you up to speed. This series has garnered high reviews due to its compelling mix of tower defense and twin-stick shooting action.

As usual before a big summer movie, Marvel has released a new mobile game to get fans excited for the upcoming release.

The perennial trading card game from Wizards of the Coast made its Android debut last year, and it seems that the developers intend to give it regular updates, just like the PC version. Magic 2015 includes an expanded collection of cards that match the physical card game, though you'll have to shell out quite a lot of cash for the full set - not unlike the real-world counterpart. Magic 2015 is a free download, but you'll need at least 1.2GB of free space to hold it.
