[New Game] Kongregate's Endless Boss Fight Brings The Pain To Google Play, IAPs Along For The Ride

Nothing like a little robot-on-robot violence, right? Kongregate's newest game on Android had a good run over on iOS and the name tells you pretty much everything you need to know about it – Endless Boss Fight. You fight bosses, endlessly.

Your main character is a little punching robot that has to do battle with big, heavily armed robot boss machines. You duck, weave, and punch your way through one after another until you lose.

The Web Version Of The Google Play Store Now Shows An Indicator For Apps With In-App Purchases

If you're a dedicated gamer who's wary of the ever-present freemium model (or an Android blogger who's tired of reaching for his phone for every app in the roundup), there's good news tonight. A recent adjustment of the Google Play Store website will let you know whether an app features in-app purchases or not.

[New Game] Disney Interactive Tests Star Wars: Assault Team Card Game In Australia

Despite the excitement of the newly-announced sequels, Star Wars remains one of the most stale and stubbornly unchanging franchises in science fiction. So clearly what Star Wars needs to get people excited again is... a mobile trading card game.

The new game comes from LucasArts and... hey, wait a minute, don't we already have a Star Wars card game on Android? Indeed, Konami released Star Wars Force Collection, a shameless rip-off of other free-to-play card games, back in September.

Nerd3 Goes On An Epic Rant About Dungeon Keeper And Its £70 In-App Purchases [Video]

An Android version of Dungeon Keeper became available worldwide two days ago, and some of you took to the comments to express how you would never, ever, consider downloading another free-to-play game from EA. Imagine if all of your complaints were combined into a single YouTube video and bottled up into eight hilarious, rage-filled minutes. That's what Nerd3 has done for us.

[New Game] Marvel Run Jump Smash Is The Best Superhero Bobblehead Game You'll See Today

Marvel continues its onslaught of games in the Play Store, and this time they've decided to take the well-trodden road marked "endless runner." Marvel Run Jump Smash is pretty typical of the genre, and at first it looks like a carbon copy of Jetpack Joyride. But there's a surprising amount of depth beneath that cutesy exterior, and the 2D art might be enough for the one dollar entry fee alone.

Whether Google has purchased the company outright or merely hired its Zurich-based development team isn't clear, but in either case, the big G will be benefitting from their impressive user interface experience soon. Google has not commented on the situation, and there is no dollar amount posted on the Bitspin website.

[New Game] Sonic Racing Transformed Lands In The Play Store, Broken Down And Low On Content

It was only three months ago that Android got SEGA's latest entry in the obligatory kart racing genre, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing. Now the sequel, which came out a year later on the consoles, has graced our platform only a day behind iOS.

Dropbox gives every user 2GB of free space, but with all of us able to get up to 16GB through referrals and additional space just by activating certain devices, enticing users to go pro can be easier said than done. So the company has been adding in improvements to make the process largely painless.

[New Game] Activision Brings Skylanders Cloud Patrol To Android, Complete With NFC Figure Integration

If you've never heard of Skylanders, you either don't have children aged 6-10 or you haven't walked down the video game aisle of a supermarket in the last two years. Today Activision has released the first Android entry in the series, Skylanders Cloud Patrol, which integrates with the eponymous toy line. It's available 18 months after the iOS version - try not to act surprised.

The game is a pretty basic tap-and-drag shooter, tasking the player with shooting down trolls from a mounted turret on an airship.
