Harvest Moon: Mad Dash turns the farming sim into a casual puzzler, now available on the Play Store

Out of nowhere, Natsume just released Harvest Moon: Mad Dash on the Google Play Store. Unlike the titles in the core Harvest Moon series, this release is not a farming simulator, at least not in the traditional sense. Harvest Moon: Mad Dash is actually a casual puzzle game that was released on consoles and PC at the tail end of 2019. While I had no doubt the title would eventually make its way to mobile, the fact that it was unceremoniously published on the Play Store this morning still came as a surprise.

Metroidvania Dandara gets Trials of Fear update, brings significant enhancements

Raw Fury has announced that its Metroidvania title Dandara has received a large content update today, and it's live on the Play Store. This update comes to the game free of charge, so if you already own the title, all you have to do is update it through the Play Store to see what's new. We already know that today's update brings with it new content to explore that's part of The Hidden Realms (which consists of three new areas), as well as a new boss fight, new powers, mechanics, and a new secret ending. New in-game descriptions, dialogues, and cutscenes have also been added to flesh out the game's story.

Google is launching its own game studio to create Stadia-exclusive games (Update: Second studio opens)

Google just unveiled Stadia, the game streaming service we all helped test as Project Stream a few months ago. The full service, which launches later this year, will support plenty of titles you can get on other platforms with cross-play. However, Google is taking things a step further with Stadia Games and Entertainment, a game studio that will produce titles exclusively for Stadia.

Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. After starting the week off strong on Monday, I'm glad to report that there are more than a few quality sales on offer today as well. Most notably, all of Raw Fury's titles are on sale today, including Bad North.

So without further ado, here are 36 temporarily free and 42 on-sale apps and games for the middle of the week.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is one of the best Metroidvania games ever made, now available on Android

Talk about a welcome surprise. Konami has silently released Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on the Google Play Store, and you can grab it today for $2.99. More importantly, this is a quality release that brings controller support, a new continue feature, content from the Sega Saturn version, and is displayed in the original 4:3 aspect ratio, so it's most likely a port of the PSP version. Really, the only thing that is missing from today's release is Nvidia Shield support.

The Serious Sam Collection is available on Google Stadia today for $29.99

A lot of games take themselves pretty seriously. Serious Sam, despite the name, is not one of them. This over-the-top shooter franchise features big guns and even bigger monsters, and now you can play it on Google Stadia. You get three games in the bundle, allowing for hours of mindless blasting.

PUBG Mobile 0.17.0 update adds Royale Pass Season 12, an Amusement Park Mode, plus the Hardcore Mode returns

We last talked about PUBG Mobile when the 0.16.5 patch landed in January, and so it would appear that the month of February was completely skipped now that patch 0.17.0 is here at the beginning of March. As expected, this is an unorganized update, even worse than previous months, since the majority of content advertised in this patch won't actually go live today. Season 12 does not start until March 9th, and the Amusement Park Mode in Classic Erangel won't arrive until March 12th. There's also some type of Artic Mode coming too, but a date hasn't even been provided for that.

20 temporarily free and 43 on-sale apps and games for Monday

Welcome to Monday, everyone. For the last couple of weeks, each Monday has started off with some strong sales, and this Monday is no different. Final Fantasy III is easily the most notable sale today, but I would be remiss if I did not mention that Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition and Heroes of Loot are two quality games that are also worth picking up. I'm also excited to announce that we have a sponsor for our sales roundup today, so please give a warm welcome to the edufitness app SOTKA for supporting our work to consistently report the best sales available on the Play Store.

Netmarble reveals the sequel to Marvel Future Fight, and it's an open-world RPG

Marvel recently revealed at PAX East 2020 that its next game is coming to mobile as an open-world RPG called Marvel Future Revolution. This title will serve as a sequel to Netmarble's Marvel: Future Fight (not to be confused with the upcoming sequel for Contest of Champions), but instead of the linear design of the original title, Future Revolution will offer the same action combat wrapped up in an open-world design.

Just last week, Google announced that several games in the SteamWorld series were making their way to Stadia — with Dig 2 and Quest being Pro freebies upon launch. Turns out that's happening sooner than expected: SteamWorld Dig 2 and SteamWorld Quest will be Stadia Pro's free games in March, along with racing sim Grid.
