Everyone who knows me is aware of my absolute love for zombies. If there's anything that I love more than zombies - it's fragging the ever-living hell out of them with an array of weapons that would impress even the most violent-minded among us. It's not very often that I get the opportunity to do such a thing, but Biofrenzy: Frag The Zombies brings that exact experience to my handheld.
Biofrenzy is a 2D sidescroller where you fight for your life against a seemingly endless hoard of flesh devouring bio-infected freaks - but not without a massive arsenal at your disposal.
Gamevil, the mastermind behind the Zenonia series, released the sequel to its super-popular baseball game Baseball Superstars into the Android Market today. Baseball Superstars II brings all of the fun of the original, as well as some new features, like enhanced control and graphics, an improved baseball experience, and user-created super skills - including pitch and batting effects.
The game itself offers seven different modes of play: Exhibition, My League, Season, Homerun Race, Tournament, Mission, and Match Mode.
Since I upgraded my antiquated HTC Magic to the shiny (and slim) Samsung Galaxy S2 I have spent most of my time downloading new games, a significant fraction of which are the so-called "casual games". These games usually cost between $0.99 and $2.99 and are of the Farm Frenzy, Angry Birds and Plants vs. Zombies variety. I tend to download a few, play them non-stop for about a week and then let them languish inside an aptly named "Old Games" folder.
Remember F-Zero from back in the Super NES days? Or perhaps the more modern WipEout for PS3? Those are both great hovercraft racing games. Do you know what would make them better, though? Guns. And bombs. And all other sorts of artillery that can be used to blow folks up. That's where Protoxide: Death Race comes in, because it has just that. Have a look at the gameplay teaser:
Wordsmiths who like to take their vocabulary games with them no longer have to rely on Zynga's popular but super-buggy Words with Friends, as Electronic Arts has made good on its promise to release an official Scrabble app today.
Coming in at the wonderful price of free, the app allows you to play Scrabble with your friends - be they iPhone or Android users - or with random online opponents.
Alright, I know what you might be thinking when you look at this game: "What's Matt thinking? Doesn't he know a hastily-churned out app when he sees one?"
That was the first impression I had when I was downloading this game, as well - Diversion's art style and woefully-specific name had me pessimistic. However, I was a bit surprised at how well this game actually plays; while it's not for everyone, it is actually kind of fun in small bursts.
