New Game: Monster Dash Finally Comes to Android, Available on iOS for Years

Halfbrick Studios has finally released their popular title, Monster Dash, onto the Android platform.  Why am I not more excited about a new, interesting, game for Android?  Because Monster Dash has been available to iPhone and iPad users for quite a while now.  This, unfortunately, is a common occurrence with Google’s mobile platform, one that is probably not going to change anytime soon.

New Game: Grand Theft Auto- Chinatown Wars Comes to Android Platform

Grand Theft Auto, the franchise that almost did not get off the ground, has had more than its share of ports, re-releases and updates over the years.  Chinatown Wars marks a return to the old days, way back in the 90’s, when Grand Theft Auto games were viewed from the sky, looking down on the action taking place.  This is because of the Nintendo DS’ lack of horsepower to run a full on 3D GTA title.

Review- Angry Birds Transformers for Android

Anyone that grew up in the 80’s probably has a fond memory of the toys that we played with back then.  Action figures such as He-Man and Transformers were the stuff dreams are, now, made of.  In recent years we have seen a resurgence of Transformers fanfare with the Michael Bay movies but to true “kid at heart” fans those movies don’t represent the true Transformers.  The true Transformers are the classic red and blue Optimus Prime, Megatron that transformed into a handgun and Soundwave who was an evil boom box (with transforming cassette tapes- who can name them all?).  Rovio has stepped in with their take on the Transformers and thrown their hat into the ring of many licensed games that have been appearing over the last several years.  It looks like Rovio has gotten the closest to that dream Transformers game.

Noah Ark Builder Mobile Game Review

Noah Ark Builder is a match 3 game similar to others such as Candy Crush Saga, Bejeweled and Puzzle Quest.  Since this is a movie tie-in game, there are clips from the movie interspersed throughout the game as you complete levels.  As far as selling you on watching the movie, Noah Ark Builder fails miserably.

New Game: Gunbrick Looks to Square Away Action Games

What do you get when you take a cube and make it the star of your new action/puzzle game?  No, we are not talking about a brand new Atari 2600 game here.  We are talking about Gunbrick by Nitrome, a new title that is looking to do away with the lead character having ripped abs, muscular arms or good looks.  Gunbrick, emphasis on brick, is a square- literally.

New Hardware: Rose Colored Gaming Developing Their Own Hand Held Gaming Device, Heavy Game Boy Influence

New hand held hardware is not something we see every day, especially when you discount the Android based stuff that we see come out of China.  That makes this announcement by Rose Colored Gaming just that much more interesting, and important.  Currently not a lot is known about this mysterious hand held, the case is just a place holder mockup that came off the Internet (in other words, don’t hold your breath on this looking like the original Game Boy).

Bandit Gaming: Fruit Ninja Ported to Texas Instruments TI-83 Graphing Calculator

Fruit Ninja, the popular slashing game for Android and iOS devices, is now available for popular graphing calculators- math teachers prepare your faces of disdain.  Before you call foul on this thinking it is just a bunch of calculations that do some animation, be warned, this is an actual game and it works.

Monkey Racing Crescent Moon Games Android Mario Kart 2

New Game: Monkey Racing Brings back Crash Team Racing and Mario Kart Style Antics to Android

Anyone that has played on a home console any real amount of time has probably run across a combat racing game.  Some popular ones in this genre include Crash Team Racing, Crash Tag Team Racing, the Mario Kart series and a few other mainstays.  Well, over on Android there are not exactly lot of options in this area if you are wanting to blast your opponent off the track.  Monkey Racing by Crescent Moon Games looks to fix that with a pretty decent looking battle racer that has over 80 tracks to race around.

Civilization Revolution 2 Android iPhone Turn Based Strategy

New Game: Civilization Revolution 2 Now Available for Android

How many 4X strategy games can you name on the Android platform (or iOS)?  Not a lot, I am sure.  This is a genre that is sorely lacking in my opinion (almost as bad as old school, first person dungeon crawlers).  2K Games have now added one more 4X strategy title to the extremely short list in Civilization Revolution 2.  Those of your reading this that are Civilization fans will already by looking for the Google Play link to purchase this game, for everyone else, read on and find out what is so interesting about this release.

New Game- Zombie Gunship Arcade Brings the Apocalypse to Flappy Bird

Okay, who is sick of Flappy Bird?  This little game has reached gamer saturation in record time (dare I say faster than Angry Birds?).  With that saturation of the market comes clones and rip off “me too” games.  Some of these clones hit systems the original game never intended to reach such as retro consoles (as covered by our sister site, Retro Gaming Magazine).  Sometimes other developers take on the call of the fans for “more” and offer unique twists on the original formula, such as what Zombie Gunship Arcade is gunning for (sorry for the pun).
