Not bad for $4.99. There aren’t that many reviews yet, but they are mostly very positive with only a couple of negatives from people saying it wouldn’t play on their device. Too soon to tell if that’s a widespread problem or just isolated cases, but so far the game has a 3.2 out of 5 star rating, which is considered “above average”.

Owners of the HTC One X have been complaining about occasional lag during game play on a device that shouldn’t be lagging at all (despite previous issues with Sense lag). What’s causing it? XDA contributor hamdir has put together a tutorial to not only explain why this is happening, but also how to fix it.
First, the reason it lags. It has to do with the number of cores in use and how some apps don’t get access to all the cores. Additionally, the cores that are being accessed are not always running at the highest clock speed. hamdir puts it like this:
The stock CPU governor on the One X keeps ramping up and down the clocks during games which is the main cause of bad frame rate
The fix for this is simple, but requires a rooted phone. If you’re rooted and running stock, simply download an app called System Tuner from the Play Store and do the following:

The very popular Grand Theft Auto III is on sale this weekend in the Google Play Store. It’s normally priced at $4.99, which in my opinion is already a great price, but starting today through May 28th, you can grab it for .99 cents. That is an absolute steal and if you’ve ever had fun playing GTA in the past, you must go and grab it.
I admit the touch screen controls are a little difficult, but its compatible with game controllers so you can grab the OnLive controller or the Logitech F710. It just so happens we are giving away the Logitech controller as part of our ASUS Transfomer Pad Prize Pack giveaway. Hit the break for download links.
Hopefully you all haven’t forgotten the best way to kick off the holiday weekend— but in case you have, we’ll give you a quick reminder of what it is. You may recall we mentioned how Because We May would be celebrating the successes of games from various developers by creating a massive week-long sale of select titles starting today in the Play Store. Well, the sale is officially on and gamers are flocking to app stores to grab premium games as we speak. Originally there was 39 titles planned for the Google Play Store, but now there are 61 titles. Oh and the list of titles are a doozy too. Hit the break for the complete list.
Mobile gaming is a pretty big market these days. With the ever increasing hardware specs that mobile device makers are packing into their product, there seems to be no limit to what type of games we should be able to run on our Android phones and tablets. Well, GameFly has taken notice of this growing trend and has decided to get a piece of the pie. The largely known game rental service has announced that it will be jumping into mobile gaming, by releasing their own third-party “GameFly GameStore”. Not known for sure, but this could either be a stand-alone app, or could be incorporated in to the current GameFly app that’s found in the Play Store.
Also included in this move, GameFly will be creating a game development fund that will help support those independent game developers that could use the extra funding to get that latest game completed and published. This is a great move by GameFly, with its current following in the game rental arena, moving to publishing mobile gaming and giving dev support will without a doubt give the company a huge boost. Although, we like to gear the attention to the Android side of the article, GameFly will also be offering this new business venture to iOS and its developers.
Read on for the full press release and all the details from GameFly.
