[New Game] Curiosity Is The Most Absurd, Ambiguous, And Tedious Game Of All Time

[New Game] Curiosity Is The Most Absurd, Ambiguous, And Tedious Game Of All Time

Have you ever felt the need to endlessly tap on your screen for no real reason? Do like watching things turn from one color to another? Then we have the game for you! It's called Curiosity, and it's mind bogglingly boring. And pointless.

Here's the gist: there's a giant cube. Like, huge. And the entire world "chips away" at it little by little in real time. Why? To satisfy their own curiosity (hence the name of the "game").

Need For Speed Most Wanted Review: A Cool New Car With No Stick Shift

Need For Speed Most Wanted Review: A Cool New Car With No Stick Shift

I'm a big fan of EA's Need For Speed series - according to Steam, I played Hot Pursuit for over 50 hours on my PC. Their latest addition to the cops 'n' racers stable is Most Wanted, hotly anticipated on consoles because it's from the racing pros at Criterion. But for those without an Xbox or PC and an abundance of mobile horsepower, EA offers the Android version, for a reasonable $7.

Final Angry Birds Star Wars Trailer Is Released, Shows Off More Lasers, Wookiees, And No, Nothing About Episode VII

Final Angry Birds Star Wars Trailer Is Released, Shows Off More Lasers, Wookiees, And No, Nothing About Episode VII

Yes, we know, Disney bought Lucasfilm. No, there aren't going to be any spoilers about the plot, director, amount of direct involvement from George Lucas, or any other details about the upcoming Episode VII movie, no matter how much you (meaning me) want there to be so you (again, me) can stop worrying. What we do have is birds with force powers, giant flying fuzzballs, and, allegedly, the droids you're looking for.

[New Game] Super Falling Fred Brings More Speed, Traps, And Blood Than The Original Game

[New Game] Super Falling Fred Brings More Speed, Traps, And Blood Than The Original Game

Man, this guy just can't catch a break, can he? As if there wasn't enough blood shed from our favorite death-defying ginger in the original Falling Fred and Running Fred after that, he's back for a third round in Super Falling Fred. Like the first, your goal is to make it from the top of a rather large shaft to the bottom without getting sliced by lasers, smashed by chomping doors, or impaled by giant spikey rollers.

Zombie Driver THD Review: You Got Your Shooter In My Racing Game

Zombie Driver THD Review: You Got Your Shooter In My Racing Game

A review of Exor Studio's Zombie Driver is somewhat redundant, since it's been available on PCs via Steam for almost three years. But as any dedicated mobile gamer knows, translating a console or PC gaming experience to a handheld is rarely as straightforward as developers or publishers think, and the $7 asking price is a respectable chunk of change, even for a proven game. So, does the NVIDIA-published THD version of Zombie Driver live up to its undead-slaying progenitor?

[Updated] Official Android 4.2 Clock App And Keyboard With Gesture Typing Leaked

Earlier this week, we posted the slightly unfinished Android 4.2 keyboard with Swype-like gesture typing and pretty blue glow (which we since took down at Google's request). Thanks to the recent Android 4.2 system dump from the Nexus 4, some new goodies are now available for pre-4.2 versions of Android. Namely the release version of the keyboard and the new Clock app that Ron is already in love with.

[New Game] League Of Heroes Is Kid-Friendly Adventure Game With Quests, Baddies, And Weather Effects

From the gameplay trailer, League of Heroes might almost look like Baby's First Diablo. In the village of Frognest, you star as a hero of the story, hacking and slashing through a variety of magical bad guys to save your town. The graphics are beautifully stylized in a 2D cartoon aesthetic. The game is free to play and includes over 60 quests.

If you've ever played an adventure game á la Legend of Zelda, you should feel right at home.
