It's a known fact that people of all ages love to blow things up with undersized tanks. It's satisfying, destructive, and cute all at the same time - three things that the human heart needs to survive. As such, there are a few games in the Play Store that satisfy this basic human need with tiny-tank gameplay; one such game being Tank Hero: Laser Wars.
TH:LW is the sequel to the popular blow-em-up title Tank Hero,but this go around it incorporates an all new graphics engines that looks absolutely beastly compared to its predecessor:
The game also features two new worlds filled with interactive environments, power-ups, and speed boosts; boss battles, a new achievement system, and four difficulty levels.
After a bunch of clever Russian programmers started creating their own Portal for Android last month using the Unity 3D engine and Valve's assets, the news got picked up and spread through the Internet like wildfire. It all seemed too good to be true, but the initial demo was playable, and as I was monitoring the development thread, I saw how quickly progress was being made. The developers were literally recreating the Portal world at a phenomenal pace, and things were looking up.
If you developed a game using the Unity 3D engine and have been looking to port the title to Android or iOS, we have good news. The basic mobile add-ons for the Unity3D, normally $400 each, are now free until April 8th.
This will allow users of the Unity 3D engine to easily port their game to Android and/or iOS with little effort, as opposed to spending months writing all new code.
Temple Run could possibly be the most anticipated game to come to Android since... well, ever. We've seen fake after fake after fake hit the Android Market in an attempt to garner downloads from unsuspecting folks looking to grab this iOS hit, and the Temple Run team took to its Facebook page to warn users of these fakes and announce that a real version is on its way. Now, we finally have a release date for the real deal, and it's coming on March 27th.
Before you ask, yes, this is another tower defense game, but this one is actually unique enough to merit a mention. Where most tower defense games opt for a linear upgrade path for a set of towers, all purchased from money accumulated by killing enemies, Epic Defense uses a less linear and more experimental approach.
Instead of having an array of towers you can purchase for various prices, you're given a set of blank, featureless towers.
Dane Cook said that there are certain things every man wants, one of which is to be part of a heist. I can't say that I personally disagree with Mr. Cook, except I'm not sure that I'd fare very well in prison if my team of bank-robbing rebels was caught. That's where HEIST: The Score comes in handy.
HEIST is a rail shooter that puts you in the middle of a bank robbery back in the golden age of gangsters: the 1920s.
If you've ever taken a look at the top Android games (or if you just follow Android news closely), you've almost certainly heard of Kairosoft before. They're the developer behind major hits like Game Dev Story and Grand Prix story. Now the company is back with a new title: Dungeon Village.
The game looks quite similar to the other titles, but they seem to think it has a bit of an RPG flair to it (though we can't figure out how):
Build a heroic hamlet that warriors and merchants can call home!
If you're a fan of old school turn-based RPGs, then you're going to love the game Konami just dropped into the Android Market: a throwback to the days of 16-bit console gaming called Ash.
The game puts you in the crumbling Empire of Aghaus, and follows the story of a pair of mercenaries after a "routine contract takes an unexpected turn" and throws them into the middle of a war that "consumes the entire continent." Sounds pretty intense.
This is quite possibly one of my favorite games from the entire month, and even beats out many of the titles from the January installment of the Best Of series. In Zombie Wonderland 2, you play the role of Chuck, who just so happens to be Niceville's only Zombie Cleaner. That's an odd job title, is it not?
As Chuck, you'll play through 31 missions in 12 different places, and the goal is to protect your current location from hoards of oncoming zombies.
