In 'Sacred Guns', You're An Afro-Sporting Angel Defending Noah The Pirate's Ark From Teletubbies Because AWESOME

Artem gives me all the weird stuff. I love it, really. In the last week or so alone, I've covered Shaq fighting mutant zombies, Santa Claus as a rock star, sentient pudding, and a walk in the park. I thought I couldn't be happier. Then he brings me 'Sacred Guns'. This game stars Archangel Mark Leung (which appears to be the same name of one of the primary devs on this project), wielding his dual golden pistols and rainbow sword against an army of "God's unwanted creation." Apparently, when the Lord Almighty wanted to flood the Earth to cleanse it of sin, "sin" was code for "evil Teletubbies." Which makes perfect sense.

'Autumn Walk', Sequel To 'Winter Walk', Wants To Take You For—Can You Guess?—A Walk

I say, fancy a jaunt in the park, ol' chap? Whilst other games may be of a less than savory nature, sometimes all a proper bloke wishes is to go for a stroll with his dog on a windy afternoon. Autumn Walk affords you just such an occasion, providing an ace simulation of the experience, in case you can't be buggered to leave your flat.

The gameplay consists mainly of following a fancy fellow as he saunters about with his bulldog in a pixelated environment.

SEGA Releases Sonic Jump For Android, A Retro-Style Vertical Platformer

In its continuing effort to revitalize the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, SEGA has released yet another made-for-mobile title starring our favorite member of the family Erinaceidae. Sonic Jump is a vertical platformer, with retro 2D visuals. The goal? Jump. In a generally upwards direction. And, of course, collect rings.

If a Sonic game needs a whole lot more explaining than that, it's probably cause for skepticism (the Sonic Adventure series excluded, perhaps).

Activision's 30th-Anniversary PITFALL! Rework Hits The Play Store As An Endless Runner With A Little More To Offer

Bringing its already-popular (on iOS) reimagining of the Atari classic to Android, Activision released Pitfall! to the Play Store today. For those who haven't seen or played the newly conceptualized Pitfall, it shares very little with the original – you'll still be dodging snakes, swinging on ropes, and jump over impossible pitfalls, but this time you'll be playing an "endless-runner" a la Temple Run. Unlike Temple Run, however, Pitfall's protagonist (Pitfall Harry) uses a whip to defeat whatever wild foes happen to be in his way.

[New App] Amazon Finally Releases Instant Video App... For Google TV

Update: Turns out the app is only compatible with LG Google TV's for the time being (meaning no Google TV set top boxes are compatible at this time). That's lame.

Remember Google TV? You know, the Google-developed set top box running an Android variant that never managed to catch on? Well, if you're one of the small but dedicated users of the most neglected streaming device around, there's reason to celebrate: Amazon's Instant Video app, previously "exclusive" to the Kindle Fire, iPad, Roku, TiVo, Blu-ray players, various connected TVs, and just about everything except standard Android devices, is available on Google Play from your Google TV.

Springpad Update Brings 'Board' Support For Tablets, Several Tweaks And Bug Fixes

I have a confession to make. I don't care for Evernote. 'Hang him from a gibbet!' I know, but I just prefer Springpad. Which is why I was excited today to see that the newest update brings tablet support for one of the coolest features: Springpad Board. This view allows users to look at all the elements of their notebook—be they text, photos, maps, to-do lists or whatever—as though they are sitting on a table.
