Quick Look At Today’s Free Amazon App: Greedy Spiders

Watch out with Amazon’s free app today because this game is HIGHLY addictive and challenging. Greedy Spiders is a great looking little puzzle game where you’ll have to save bugs trapped on a web from hungry spiders. When you first start the game, the only action you will have is to cut the web and try and interrupt the spiders path or directly free the bugs from the web. While easy at first, as the game starts to add multiple spiders and more intricate webs, you my find yourself with some great challenges on hand. There are also some new tools added later where you can burn the web, trick a spider with a dummy bug, and use some magical powers to free a bug. A cool feature, if you choose to use it from frustration, is a hints section to help you out in some of the harder levels. The game runs great and looks great too. If you notice any performance issues, you can also lower the graphics level if need be within the game. With 128 challenging levels and great graphics, this is sure to keep you addicted for a while.

This game will normally cost you a buck, so grab it while it’s free from the Amazon App Store. If not using the App Store, you can grab the download here by entering your email address or phone number in the upper right hand corner for a download link.  Be sure to have the “unknown sources” box checked off under Settings—>Applications on your Android device.

Diversion, A 3D Platformer For Android

Here’s a game a little different to check out. Diversion is a 3D linear platformer in a hovering world. As the game moves your character forward, you’ll have to jump, swim, climb, and hang your way through the levels and all its obstacles.  The game’s controls only let you tap on the screen to perform an action, so it’s pretty straight forward. To interact and climb ledges for example, you simply need to jump up or down to them. For the most part you’ll need to grab stars, gems, and gem multipliers that you can use to get upgrades in the game. Starting out, you may find the game a little too simple, but give it time as the challenge level will increase as you go along. The graphics look great and I didn’t find any performance issues running this game on my Droid X.

There are 4 worlds, 100 levels, and over 200 characters to play through. As you progress through the levels you’ll find more obstacles and challenges await to be unlocked, so don’t be fooled by the first few easy levels that get you started. This is also an XPERIA PLAY optimized game and it recommended to play this on a newer device as it’s graphics intensive. Check out some of the gameplay below and grab it for free via the QR code our source link to the android market. Thanks Johnny L.

Push Mr. Dismount Down The Stairs For Maximum Damage With Stair Dismount

If you’re bored today and need a new game to suck up some time, here’s an interesting and fun one for you. Stair Dismount is a 3D ragdoll simulation game where you try and dismount your dummy in different settings to damage him as much as possible. You’ll be throwing him down ramps, off towers, and down stairs trying to hurt him as much as possible (sound effects included). You’ll be selecting the area to push your dummy from and then selecting how hard you want to shove him. How can that not be fun right? I’ve put a ton of hours into this game trying to score the most points and it never seems to get old. It’s also a great looking game with a full 360 degree camera in the 3D world to see everything that’s going on. The only complaint I have, which is a small one, is the game is a little finicky telling the difference between trying to move the camera and selecting the dismount point on the dummy (that might just be me not doing it right though).

The game is free in the Android Market and you’ll have plenty of free levels and dummies to choose from (with more to purchase if you’re having a good time). You’ll even be able to put a face on your dummy from your photo gallery and take in game snapshots of your dummy’s destruction. Check out the trailer below and grab it for free via QR code or the source market link below. Happy dummy smashing! Thanks Johnny L.

Droid Bionic Arena Scavenger Hunt Winners Page FINALLY Goes Live

While I was getting locked and loaded to rant about Verizon pulling down the Bionic Area page after the scavenger hunt AR game was over, I noticed Level 2 on the site is now open to see who has won (I was starting to think they were going to keep it a secret). They have listed the confirmed winners as well as the ones still pending approval.  There is also a stats page showing the total prizes that were found within the game, but more interesting, a link to download the game. There is a little note at the bottom that, though the game has concluded, to download it anyway to see what’s next. This hints they may do a scavenger hunt like this again in the future. Be sure to go check it out from the source link below.

Make Free WiFi Calls From Android Phone Or Tablet With Groove IP

The quest for making free calls over WiFi with an Android device is not a new topic, but if you’ve gone down this road you’re probably familiar with apps like sipdroid or csipsimple. If those two names are familiar then you also know you had to deal with Google Voice Callback, pbxes, or SIP accounts and possibly some other forwarding trickery to get the app to work. It’s possible that you’ve even tried to set these apps up and failed after not understanding exactly what needed to be done. Enter GrooVe IP, where all you need is a Google Voice account to get started. If you like simple and something that just “works” and works well, hit up the break for more.

Phone Story – The Production of Smartphones, Uncensored

Phone Story has become a hot topic at the moment following its recent removal from the Apple App Store. Apple contacted the developer of the game explaining that they violated four rules for iOS app creation; its depictions of child abuse (code 15.2), objectionable or crude content (16.1) and promises to turn over a portion of the money to charity (21.1 and 21.2). Not to mention the fact that they probably felt the “Story” hit too close to home.

The game depicts a dark look at smartphone production, starting in the Democratic Republic of the Congo where the mineral coltan is mined by children and prisoners of war. The app then follows the production process to a Chinese factory where workers are subjected to abuse, discrimination, inhumane conditions, and forced overtime, ultimately leading to suicides. Next the story presents us with the hordes of oblivious consumers bombarding what is no doubt meant to portray an Apple store. I’m sure they didn’t appreciate that. Finally the story ends up in Ghana, Japan, & China where obsolete “recycled” phones have ended up to be salvaged using methods harmful to people and our environment, and from there the cycle repeats itself.
