Google's Latest Market Updates Nerf AppBrain’s Fast Web Installer

The recent update to the Android Market had plenty of people excited about new features to be available in Gingerbread, but it seems like the update may have had some unpleasant side effects. The Appbrain Fast Web Installer feature, which allowed users to push application downloads to their phones straight from Appbrain.com, is now broken due to new security measures. Some naysayers may think that Google is going directly after Appbrain, but in reality, the reasons are much less nefarious.

iControlPad Bluetooth Gamepad Design Finalized, Units To Be Available By The End Of November

If you excuse the name (it started as an iPhone-only device), the iControlPad appears to be a pretty nice solution for "real" gaming on a touchscreen phone. Culled from left-over Open Pandora gaming console parts, the iControlPad includes dual analog sticks along with rear trigger buttons. The device pairs with your phone over Bluetooth, so it should be supported by your favorite emulators. Craig Rothwell of the iCP/OPP team has just posted a video updating folks on the status of the project, finishing by saying that we should see the iControlPad shipping out by the end of the month.

Angry Birds Updated: 45 New Levels, New Storyline And A New Bird!

Just when you thought your torment was over, Rovio have struck back with a glut of new levels. Some pigs just never learn, do they? Also included in the update is proper QVGA support, a dour-looking boulder bird, as well as fixes for some graphical issues. Best part about it? Rovio haven't removed the bug found on reddit that allows you to skip locked worlds, so you can go straight to these new levels even if you haven't passed the worlds before it.

[Update: Root No Longer Needed] Angry Aviary Lets You Share Multiple Angry Birds Profiles On The Same Device

Update: root is no longer required to use this app.

As an Angry Birds lover, I have always been slightly disappointed by the fact that when both me and my wife share the same phone to play the game, we never know who set the highest score in every level. Short of splurging the green for a new phone (she is still under contract with her crappy Pre), we now have another option - a small utility wittily called Angry Aviary.

EVAC From Hexage Arrives - You Want This Game. Now [First Look]

It's not every day that I shoot videos of Android games (in fact, this is my first one ever) but when I saw EVAC HD hit the Market yesterday, I felt the need to do it. It wasn't even the graphics, which, by the way, are awesome, it wasn't the gameplay, which is also good - it was the music and the sounds that captivated me. I have only one way to describe them - "magical".

id Software's Rage Mobile To Receive An Android Port: Droids VS Zombies At 60 FPS?

If there's one thing about Android that's really been coming along lately, it's gaming. We've already seen great games like MiniSquadron!, Angry Birds, and Reckless Racing make good impressions, and now we have another cause to celebrate. Following on from the news of an imminent Cut The Rope release for Android, we have this illuminating tweet from id Software co-founder John Carmack, confirming what has been the wish of many since way back in August:

Just in case you don't know who this John Carmack fella is, his Wikipedia entry states:

Carmack was the lead programmer of the id computer games Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Quake, their sequels and the Commander Keen series of games.
