Alright, yes. The tower defense genre is flooded. Radiant Defense still deserves an honorable mention in the crowded field. The game, from the creators of Radiant HD, continues the neon-colored universe's traditions of quirky humor and colorful enemies. Curiously, though, it does not follow the previous game's 8-bit homage tradition. Still, we think it adds enough to the genre to be worth your time.
iOS got a head start in the mobile gaming arena, but as Android has skyrocketed to the world's most popular mobile OS, game developers have been migrating their hits to Google's platform. Now Death Rally is throwing its top-tier, top-down racer into the Android ring.
Back in the day, Android games sucked. There were so few of them and the quality of most games was so awful that it was hardly worth playing. In those days, Radiant was a beacon of light in a cold, dark Market. It may be too soon for nostalgia, but color us excited when we saw Radiant Defense on the Play Store.
Yes, it's a tower defense game. Yes, you're probably sick of the genre.
Dropbox has been the reigning king of cloud storage and syncing for a few years now, but the competition is getting intense. LogMeIn, which is best known for its remote access apps, has just launched a cloud storage solution of its own called Cubby.

After wrecking Earth on the PC last year and teasing us back in February, Demolition Inc. has arrived on Android by way of Nvidia's Tegra Zone. That means you're going to need a Tegra 2 or 3 device to enjoy the detailed graphics and realistic physics in this action/strategy title, at least for now.
The game is essentially a well-implemented physics simulator that has you taking a city apart piece by piece so its raw materials can be harvested.

In my opinion, having remote access to your desktop or laptop computers from your Android tablet is a must-have feature for all tablet owners. While there are several ways to do this, Splashtop is among the best. The thing is, the tablet optimized version (as well as the Tegra 3 version) is a bit on the pricey side. For a limited time, however, the Splashtop team has slashed the prices of their remote desktop apps in the Play Store.
