PhantomRift

Phantom Rift is the latest game from Foursaken Media, and once again the developer has shown that it knows how to deliver attractive mobile experiences. Following the likes of Monster Adventures, Heroes and Castles, and Bug Heroes 2, Phantom Rift serves as another example of attractive 3D fun. This time around we're looking at a role-playing game inspired by the Mega Man Battle Network series of games that originally appeared on the Game Boy Advance.

The American football season is just getting underway, and that means it's time for game tie-ins. Full Fat has long made games based on the flick-kick model, and now you can complete passes and score field goals with NFL Kicker and NFL Quarterback 2015.

In NFL Kicker, you have to complete field goals from different places on the field with varying wind. You've probably seen this gameplay skinned several different ways.

Back at the Google I/O keynote this summer, we saw a very interesting demonstration - as Sundar Pichai explained, Google wants to make the experience between Android devices and Chromebooks seamless by allowing Android apps to run natively on Chrome (using App Runtime for Chrome, currently in beta). Evernote, Vine, and Flipboard were demonstrated on stage, and today Google has announced the first batch of Android apps that will run on Chrome right now.

What activities would you entrust to people jacked up on several cans of Red Bull? Flying an airplane probably doesn't rank high on the list, but for over a decade now, Red Bull has sponsored precisely that (okay, it probably doesn't actually encourage pilots to drink energy drinks beforehand). Established in the early 2000s, the Red Bull Air Race has taken place most years since (it took a hiatus from 2011 - 2013), pitting around ten or so planes against each other in a high-speed aerial obstacle course.

All the Voice Over IP talk in the last day or two has focused on a certain Google property, but Hangouts isn't the first one available on Android, and certainly not the most full-featured. Seven months after being acquired by Japanese retailing giant Rakuten, mobile call and text app Viber is getting a major refresh. Version 5.0 has a new look for both phones and tablets, but the big news is that the app now supports video calling.

HTC has gotten quite into the habit of updating its built-in apps through the Play Store, and that's a good thing. It means you don't have to wait on full system updates to get new features. Now that extends to the stock HTC lock screen, which has just been added to the Play Store.

I hear you already. This is a Gameloft game. Stop giving them press. Stop talking about them. Ignore them, and maybe, just maybe, they'll go away. Well, that's simply not the case. The company's games attract downloads like photos with inaccurate quotes.

But somewhere along the way, Gameloft learned how to make really pretty games. Its latest title, Spider-Man Unlimited, really is a visual treat. The company's previous Spider-Man efforts took the realistic approach, but this time around, it's going out on a limb with a cel-shaded superhero instead.

Android is becoming a veritable haven of classic RPGs, and Square Enix's mobile ports and re-releases are a big part of that. In addition to no less than six of the original Final Fantasy games, Chrono Trigger, The World Ends With You, and the fourth and eighth entries in Enix's Dragon Quest series, the company published the original Dragon Quest to the Play Store last night. You can get the 1986 NES title for a reasonable $2.99.

That big Hangouts update wasn't just about making it prettier and finally rolling in Google Voice. Google also continued its efforts to make Hangouts independent of Google+, as it previously announced. You can now make multi-way video calls without a Google+ profile on Android.
