id Software's Rage Mobile To Receive An Android Port: Droids VS Zombies At 60 FPS?

If there's one thing about Android that's really been coming along lately, it's gaming. We've already seen great games like MiniSquadron!, Angry Birds, and Reckless Racing make good impressions, and now we have another cause to celebrate. Following on from the news of an imminent Cut The Rope release for Android, we have this illuminating tweet from id Software co-founder John Carmack, confirming what has been the wish of many since way back in August:

Carmack was the lead programmer of the id computer games Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Quake, their sequels and the Commander Keen series of games.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare - Force Recon Now Available For Select Android Devices - And It's Free!

Thanks to @maxisma, AndroidSpin found that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - Force Recon is now available for download via GetJar. The good news: it looks pretty damn fun - it's reminiscent of PaperBoy, but with a lot more shooting and blood. But there's bad news, as well: before you get too excited, you should know that there's a decent chance your device may not be supported. I haven't looked at the supported devices list thoroughly (it's long, I'm lazy), but it looks like you need a trackball to play.

4 Free StarCraft II Android Apps That Will Help You Achieve A GG

I have loved StarCraft ever since the first version came out back in 1999. I've played it for 10 years, and this year excitedly watched, with all of you, the unveiling of both the beta and final versions (hey, we even got our cool Twitter background thanks to Starcraft II).

REVIEW: Reckless Racing Brings Yeehaw Dorifto To Android

Note: Testing for this review was done on a Nexus One

I love drifting. As I tuck myself into bed, I can be heard to whisper "Good night, Dorikin". So when I read that Reckless Racing, so long anticipated on the Droid Forums gaming section, had finally been released, I immediately bought it from the market.

My first impressions weren't particularly positive. The country hick theme (RR was formerly known as Deliverace) did not appeal to me, and the single-thumb control scheme was terrible.

EA Acquires Chillingo For $20 Million - Chillingo To Give A Damn About Android Again?

It was rumored earlier this morning that Chillingo, publishers of the massively popular games Angry Birds by Rovio and Cut The Rope by Zeptolab, would be acquired by a major company. It has been confirmed that a deal has been struck and Chillingo has been acquired by EA for $20 million in cash and possibly more.

While full details of the transaction haven't been released yet, there were probably some other bonuses involved as $20 million is far below Chillingo's estimated worth of $80 to $200 million.

Bug In Angry Birds Lets You Unlock All Locked Worlds

Have you ever wanted to peek ahead to those locked worlds in Angry Birds that are unavailable before fully completing the previous ones? A bug (or an Easter egg) in the Android version of the game lets you do just that, a reddit user braaaiins found. I tried it just a few minutes ago with 100% success.

Of course, many would argue that you should be going in order and playing the way Rovio meant for you to play, and I'd agree with them.

ZeptoLab, The Maker Of The Top iOS Game Cut The Rope, Promises An Android Version

Merely four days ago, @AndroidPolice (that's our Twitter account) tweeted out the following message:

"Cut The Rope" for iPhone is dubbed the next Angry Birds. Can we have that on Android please, @ZeptoLab? http://youtu.be/-1gf5UdYHwg

I don't know if ZeptoLab, the developer of this top paid iPhone game, was really listening or the timing was just right, but it seems to have answered our prayers with the following statement:

We plan to develop an Android version too, but it's still hard to give a release date.
