Need for Speed, quite possibly the most popular game in its genre is making its way yet again to the Android platform in the form of Most Wanted. If you’re not familiar with this franchise, Need for Speed offers realistic dynamic physics-based collisions, cop takedowns, and realistic visual damage. Need for Speed: Most Wanted will also feature plenty of real world cars to drive, but let’s face it, we all know we end up crashing these cars just for fun either way.
This franchise has always been one of my favorites ever since I was young, so I’ll definitely give this a shot on my Android device. Electronic Arts has released a short teaser video of the game in action that you can check out after the break!
The most recent Angry Birds update brings a connection to their recent spinoff, Bad Piggies. What better way to promote the new game than by incorporating it into the game that started it all. This update gives you 15 pig themed levels and 15 Surf ‘n Turf levels. There are also some new power-ups such as Super Seeds, the Almighty Sling King and Birdquake. These are in-app purchases so be prepared to pay before dropping a Birdquake. It will interesting to see if Rovio will also incorporate some Star Wars themed levels in future Angry Birds updates before the release of that game. Use the Play Store link or QR code to download the update.
Another action thriller is about to make its way to Android gamers’ hearts. Gameloft has released a trailer for its upcoming Zombiewood game. Unlike other action games, Zombiewood takes place with players taking control of a stuntman who you guessed it— specializes in kicking some serious zombie keister. You’ll have a full arsenal of weapons available at your disposal and you’ll use that to kill anything and everything that tries to eat you. As you can see in the trailer below, the game features some awesome graphics and what appears to be almost non-stop action. Considering there’s a ton of zombies that seemingly is relentless with trying to destroy you, this should make for what could potentially be limitless gameplay.
The trailer also indicates the game will arrive by Halloween, so it’s only going to be a few weeks’ time from now. We know most of you zombie haters are itching to get a tease of the action, so be sure to get your fix and check out the trailer once you hit past the break.
Spacetime Studios’ highly anticipated mobile MMORPG, Arcane Legends, has finally been revealed in the form of a short cinematic trailer. The title features the same gameplay that players have grown accustomed to in the studio’s previous games. Although, rather than attempt to harness the latest graphics, Arcane Legends offers a retro vibe, opting for cartoon-esque graphics, similar to those seen in Pocket Legends.
Players will be able to choose from three classes including Warrior, Rogue or Sorcerer. Additionally, the combat system has been retrofitted, offering a more robust experience in terms of battling enemies. For example, ranged enemies will attempt to space themselves from your character if you are attacking with melee. Jump past the break to see the game in action.
Last month we covered a new entrant to the gaming controller market, the SteelSeries Free. The device is a bluetooth-based controller that is multi-platform compatible, including Android devices. The SteelSeries Free includes two joysticks, a D-pad, and numerous buttons similar to many game controllers on the market. It does contain a rechargeable battery that is supposed to be good for up to 10 hours of continuous gameplay.
Those interested in placing a pre-order can now do so at the SteelSeries web site. Pricing is $79.99, though it is unclear whether that is a pre-order special. SteelSeries indicates the devices will start shipping this Friday, October 12th. If you are interested in grabbing one of these controllers, hit the source link to place your pre-order.
Can’t get enough of your Angry Birds fix, young Jedi? Well you’re in luck because Rovio has announced its Angry Birds Star Wars game that is due to arrive in November. The game will feature the standard Star Wars locales from the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Death Star, giving players many chances to channel their inner Luke Skywalker. This game is set to take the Angry Birds franchise to new heights as Peter Vesterbacka, CMO of Rovio claims it will be “the best Angry Birds game we’ve ever done“.
The game will hit the Play Store and Amazon Appstore on November 8th— but in the meantime, Rovio promises to tease us by releasing various screenshots and trailers highlighting the games well, awesomeness. You’ll find additional information once you hit the source link below. And remember friends, may the force be with you.
Whether you enjoy Rovio’s game titles or not, it’s clear that they sure know how to make money. Angry Birds has been such a huge cash cow for the company, and to bring it even further, Rovio has teased a picture of a Darth Vader looking costume that’s most likely fitted on one of their “Angry Birds.” While there’s not much information on this, Rovio is promising more details this Monday on October 8th.
What do you guys think about this? Any Star Wars and Angry Birds fans out there? If so, I’m sure this will be right up your alley.
We recently featured Four in a Row HD +Riddles by Alberto Hernandez, and he just came out with another one called Lines and Puzzles. It’s a similar game but it’s based on Gomoku. In case you’re wondering what Gomoku is, it’s similar to Connect Four, but you need to get five in a row and pieces can be placed anywhere you want (non gravitational) as long as it’s on an intersecting line (like the picture above). Lines and Puzzles offers some variations like 3-in-line (tic-tac-toe), 4-in-line, or 5-in-line Freestyle Gomoku. You have your choice of themes which include wood, chalk, printed paper, Go-like (traditional Gomoku), or neon for boards up to 15 x 15.
Plague Inc. has made it’s way the the Google Play Store, and it’s likely to be a hit. It’s a mix of “high strategy” and “terrifyingly realistic simulation” from developer Ndemic Creations, and thanks to Miniclip, it’s now available for the Android faithful. It’s actually a chance for you to play “Dr. Evil” in a sense because it’s up to you to bring about the end of human history by spreading pathogens. It starts with a a simple cough, but through mutations, it will eventually take on many forms which can be deadly. You job won’t be easy because the human’s will defend themselves with everything they’ve got.

Glu Mobile has another game on the way, and it’s called Death Dome. From the name you should be able to tell it’s a fighting game. Here’s the premise from the horse’s mouth:
No one really remembers where it all started…but before long…it was everywhere. The “M” virus… Most people who showed symptoms were dead within days…but others weren’t so lucky. Mutations were showing up all over the city. The infected were quarantined in a bio-dome force field that encased the city of Palamira. Some called it a “safe zone”, but most know it as the Death Dome. The M virus grew stronger inside the Death Dome and eventually became strong enough to live on its own without a host. Strong enough to become…The Behemoths!
The only name I know is Phoenix, I have no recollection of who I was before…The one thing I do know is that they will never dismantle the dome while the behemoths are still alive so I must take them all down….myself!
