Root is the latest board game adaptation from Dire Wolf Digital, now available on the Play Store

Root is a popular adventure board game that has won its fair share of awards and has already amassed three expansions. This is more than likely why Dire Wolf Digital has chosen to digitally adapt the game for the Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile. So now that the game is available on the Play Store, it's clear this adaptation offers an enjoyable digital tabletop experience, which can be yours for $9.99.

Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells is the latest cash-grab from Zynga, now available on the Play Store

Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells is the latest cash-grab from Zynga, now available on the Play Store

Zynga has officially announced that it's working on a Harry Potter match-3 game for mobile. This game is called Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells, and of course, Zynga has yet to share a single screenshot or video of the title. Paradoxically Zynga has noted that the game is already available as a soft-launch release in the Philippines, which means the studio is already publicly testing the title, which begs the question as to why there are zero screenshots or videos shared with today's announcement. Could it be that Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells is such a shallow cash grab that it's in the developer's best interest to hide what the game looks like before an official worldwide release?

11 temporarily free and 49 on-sale apps and games for Friday

Welcome to Friday, everyone. Now that the weekend is almost here, it's time once again to check out all of the app and game sales currently available on the Google Play Store. It looks like discounted icons are the name of the game today, thanks to a plethora of releases from coccco28.

Scythe: Digital Edition is an asymmetric competitive board game from Asmodee Digital

Scythe: Digital Edition is an asymmetric competitive board game from Asmodee Digital

Asmodee Digital is best known for bringing many board games to Android thanks to its penchant for creating worthwhile digital ports of physical games. Despite the fact that board games are now more popular than ever, it would seem Asmodee has already worked through its catalog of easily-recognizable titles, such as Ticket to Ride and Carcassonne. This means Scythe: Digital Edition might not have the same name recognition as its forebearers, but it's still a quality release that captures the physical version's asymmetric competitive play.

Nintendo 3DS emulator Citra now supports save states on Android (APK download)

Nintendo 3DS emulator Citra now supports save states on Android (APK download)

Citra first added save state support to its desktop build back in April this year, just a month before bringing over the emulator to Android. Since save states are very intense on storage and prone to breakage, it took the team a while to port over experimental save state support to Android, but the wait is over. Citra has announced that save states are now available on the latest Android build just as the app reached the milestone of half a million downloads.
