Halfbrick Studios turns Fruit Ninja into a competitive multiplayer game with the beta release of 'Fruit Ninja Fight'

Halfbrick Studios aren't having a good year. They recently laid off half of their workforce and with that sudden change have also decided to start concentrating all of their efforts on their two most successful licenses, Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride. Their latest release on the Play Store is an open beta product still under development. It is called Fruit Ninja Fight, and as the name would suggest, it's a multiplayer-focused Fruit Ninja game.

The card-based dungeon crawling adventure game 'Card Quest' has been ported to Android

The single-player card-based strategy roguelite Card Quest has been ported to Android, and amazingly it has landed on the Play Store before Apple users have even received a release date for their upcoming iOS port. So for once Android is first, and considering that this doesn't happen often, let's try to enjoy it.

CMGE Group Limited's puzzle-platformer 'Candleman' is a great game no one has heard of

CMGE Group Limited's Candleman just arrived on the Google Play Store, and while it is an unknown game, it really shouldn't be. It's a 3D puzzle-platformer with an infectious story and design. You play the part of an anthropomorphic candle that is reaching the end of its wick. But instead of choosing to burn out, this candle starts on a journey to light the way to a better existence.

SMG Studio's co-op puzzle game 'Death Squared' is out

SMG Studio's Death Squared made the rounds for consoles and PC back in the beginning of 2017, and it was well received. Today it has released on the Play Store, which means Android users can finally see what all the fuss was about. There is no doubt that this is a well thought-out puzzle game that includes both a single-player and co-op experience for its main campaign, but the question remains, is it a good port?

Stampede Games' minimal puzzler '.projekt' just landed on the Play Store

Stampede Games may sound familiar thanks to their previous release Evo Explores, which happens to look and play a lot like Monument Valley. Well, it would appear that the developer has released an all-new puzzle game for Android called .projekt, and I have to say it's quite striking. But even if you ignore the well-thought-out art direction, the puzzle-based gameplay holds its own while offering up a solid challenge worth the asking price.

Google Contributor is being discontinued in favor of a newer iteration due in early 2017

Google Contributor was a very interesting proposition for those of us in the web publishing industry. It allowed sites like Android Police to offer readers an option to pay a little bit of money per month to remove some ads and thus have a better experience reading us while also helping us stay in business. It was launched in August of 2015 and has thus far stayed limited to users in the US. Today though, Contributor is being discontinued.

Users are receiving an email that explains that there's a new and improved version of Contributor that will launch "early next year" and that, in the meantime, the current Contributor will be discontinued.

WhatsApp Goes Officially Free On All Platforms, Promises No Ads And Better Business Communication To Stay Profitable

Ever since its launch, WhatsApp has had two business models on paper: you pay for the app on iOS or Blackberry (that has changed a long time ago when the app went free) or you get the first year free and you have to pay $0.99/yr afterward. However, that latter model was never put into action consistently. Despite having used the messenger for more than 6 or 7 years, I was never charged once and neither have any of my friends and relatives. Whenever the expiration date approaches, we get a small pop-up telling us that our service has been extended for another year and that'd be it.

YouTube's Completely Ad-Free Subscription Likely To Launch October 22nd With The Name YouTube Red

We all know YouTube has been planning to launch a completely ad-free subscription, but the details have been sorely lacking on things like how much it will cost, what will be included, and when it will launch. There may finally be some answers in a report by Recode that points to October 22nd as a probable launch date. The subscription is expected to run for $10 / month and would completely remove all paid advertising from YouTube and include the current benefits of Google Play Music Unlimited.

Rumors about a premium service option have circulated for years, particularly after the first report of a music-focused streaming subscription surfaced, which ultimately became YouTube Music Key.
