Zen Studios' CastleStorm captured fans when it hit consoles last year, and now it's ready to try its hand with mobile gamers.

Rovio LVL11's Upcoming Game RETRY May Just Put Flappy Bird To Shame With Even More Infuriating Gameplay

Flappy Bird is a game with only a single button. Players tap their fingers against the screen repetitively to get this plump little bird to flap its wings fast enough to resist the gravity of whatever massive planet it must live on, but not so fast quickly that it flies up into pipes hanging from the ceiling for who knows why.

We all remember Tiny Thief, but let's set those memories aside for a moment. Rovio Stars is back with another Android title.

The game itself is an adorable take on word search. Look for words on-screen and swipe them to get points. Doing so will cause them to disappear, sometimes removing letters needed for future words and adding some degree of strategy to the experience.

Huawei Announces Its Flagship Ascend P7, Still Looks Like An iPhone, Still Probably Never Coming To America

While Huawei's presence here in the United States has remained limited, the company's handset shipments in Asia and other parts of the world make it a serious mobile contender in the grand scheme.
