Air Attack 2 Mixes Retro  Shoot-Em-Up Gameplay With Fantastic 3D Graphics And A Great Free-To-Play Model

It might be tempting to think that there's nothing new under the sun for top-down airplane shoot-em-ups. After all, the genre has been kicking around since the 1970s. But you'd be wrong - in fact, the vertical layout and touch controls on smartphones make them ideal for this sort of title, as exemplified by Air Attack way back in 2011. The original game was one of our favorites during the initial Android boom, and now the sequel has arrived. Air Attack 2 is free to download on the Play Store today.

Crimsonland Is Basically Starcraft As A Top-Down Shooter, Complete With Four Player Local Co-Op

Crimsonland Is Basically Starcraft As A Top-Down Shooter, Complete With Four Player Local Co-Op

Remember those Terran levels in the original Starcraft, where your entire planet was being overrun with H.R. Geiger knock-offs and all hope seemed lost? Remember how you wished you could jump down into your screen, strap on a suit of power armor, and serve up hot lead to all comers instead of directing troops like an omnipotent general? Well since Blizzard is never (never) going to give us Starcraft Ghost and Microsoft won't let Halo out of the Xbox playpen, Crimsonland might just be the closest you can get to that experience.

Devolver Digital Brings Hyper-Violent Brawler Hotline Miami 2 To SHIELD Hardware For $5

Devolver Digital Brings Hyper-Violent Brawler Hotline Miami 2 To SHIELD Hardware For $5

The original Hotline Miami is a love letter to top-down action game excess, marrying tight and lightning-fast controls to neon-soaked, pixelated 80s aesthetics. (Oh, and that movie Drive.)

On Android Hotline Miami is exclusive to the SHIELD, SHIELD Tablet, and SHIELD TV, and so it is with the sequel, Wrong Number.
