- 7 Know A Worthy New App? Let Us Know!
Welcome to the weekly roundup of the best new Android applications, games, and live wallpapers that went live in the Market or were spotted by us in the previous week
2 weeks or so. Due to CTIA last week, we decided to postpone last week's roundup and roll all the apps into one big 2-week post.
Get ready - the list is quite massive and may freeze up your browser while loading - I suggest you open up links in new tabs to avoid page reloads.
Looking for the previous week's roundup? Find it here: 37 Best (And 3 WTF) New Android Apps, Games, And Live Wallpapers From Last Week (3/9/11 – 3/15/11)
Today's roundup is sponsored by XIMAD and their bubble shooter game Bubble Birds. Bubble Birds is one of the top games on Windows Phone 7 Marketplace and occupies a 2nd place on the Blackberry App World. The premise should be familiar - you pop batches of funny-looking birds by tossing other birds at them and matching sets of three or more birds of the same color.

Angry Birds Rio (Amazon Exclusive)
An Amazon exclusive without any pigs - the gameplay in AB Rio is a bit different. Instead of exploding pigs, you have to explode cages and free other birds. This was the Amazon Appstore exclusive launch app that made so many of us install the Appstore app.

The sequel to PewPew.
PewPew 2? A shooter with perfect gameplay, sweet retro graphics, and high fps. In 11 words, PewPew 2 is the best multidirectional shoot them up on Android. Expect retro graphics, megatons of enemies, and a frame rate achieved by no other game (except PewPew).

In an intense battle for survival, you have to fight your way through an endless horde of creatures intent on killing you. Fight them with various weapons like pistols, rifles, shotguns, grenades, Molotov cocktails and many others. Aim well, shoot straight, conserve your ammo and never ever let yourself be boxed in.
Tower Raiders 2 GOLD
The sequel to Tower Raiders, one of the best tower defense games on Android (and my personal favorite).
Last Stand Lite
The free version of a popular Last Stand zombie game that came out a few weeks ago.
Test your reaction time and keep your wits about you! It's not easy keeping calm with a horde of MonstRs rushing for your ice creams! You'll think it's easy at first, but then feel the addictive rush as you start to defend your ice cream cart.
2 game modes available in each level:

This game is not new per se, but it looks great, and we've never heard of it before.
Castle Warriors is a tensely fought, tightly paced RTS game set in a landscape that gently tweaks all those fantasy tropes from the games of yore. Lead your armies against hordes of evil. You must take and defend castles, use superior strategy and tactical timing to gain advantage before claiming victory.
Godville is a zero-player game (ZPG), parodying everything from "typical" MMO games with their tedious level ups, to internet memes and ordinary day to day things. The game might look strange at first sight, but don't hurry to neglect it right away. Take a look on your hero for a couple days, look around and you won't regret!
In this game you are god, and all you need to do is to create your own hero so he will do all these boring things you had to do in the other games. He will fight monsters, collect loot, earn gold, etc, leaving you to enjoy the only thing that matters in any game - lean back and have fun.

Pokemon Tower Defense
I would never-ever-ever recommend a Pokemon game myself, but 1700 reviews and a stunning average 4.8-star rating are kind of forcing me. Apparently, the gameplay is second to none.
When a pack of wild Rattata attack Professor Oak's lab, it is up to you to stop them. Set out on your own Pokemon journey, to catch and train all pokemon and try to solve the mystery behind these attacks. Featuring the original 151 pokemon!
The fact that this game is cross-platform between Mac, iOS, Android, and PC alone is enough to buy this game.

Return Zero (BETA)
Looks like a decently made Speedx 3D type game. The most awesome part here is the developer name - "We came from Mars." Love it!
Return Zero is a beautiful psychedelic ultrafast 3D tunnel racer. If racing past mad-fast, frenctic mazes set out in virtual, TRON like worlds is your thing, then Return Zero is definitely the game for you.

WTF App(s) Of The Week
Can I Bang Her?
I never knew there was a "half plus seven" rule, so in case you want to bag a 0-year-old, as the app's screenshot suggests, you'll have to wait 34 years. If this is not a WTF app, I don't know what is. I wonder who that guy is who gave it a 5-star review.
Ever been in doubt whether banging a chick is age appropriate?
This app decides using the 'Half plus seven' rule.
