Google has started rolling out its latest update for its Google Play Games, and with it comes Game Profile improvements and design changes.
Last week we told you that Humble Mobile Bundle returned with its second edition. Now the team over at Humble Bumble has updated their “premium” priced games with three additional titles. Just as it was before, you can pay any amount you’d like to gain access to four of them while at the time of this writing, but a donation of $4.56 will garner you three additional games: Karateka Classic, QWOP, and God of Blades. The charities being helped this time around are Child’s Play Charity and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Hit the break for the full list of games.
If you love mobile gaming and giving back, then we have good news for you. Humble Mobile Bundle is back with a fresh set of games, all for the price of your choosing. Four of the games are available at the bare minimum of one penny; however, if you pay more than the average donation ($4.52 at the time of this writing), you’ll be able to pick up an additional two games.
While you can pay as little as a penny for the games, you should know that the money can be split between developers, charity, or Humble Bundle themselves. Also, you can use a slider to disperse the money in the direction you choose. If you want to give it all to charity, you can do so. If you want to support indie developers, there’s an option for that too. The charities partnering for Humble Mobile Bundle 2 include Child’s Play Charity and Electronic Frontier Foundation.
The Humble Mobile Bundle is back again and six Android games are up for grabs. As with any Humble Bundle, you get to name your own price and decide exactly how your money is divided among charities, developers, or Humble Bundle itself. The games available this time around are Contre Jour, Anomaly Korea, Plants vs. Zombies, Bladeslinger, The Room, and Metal Slug 3. In order to receive The Room and Metal Slug 3 as well, you’ll have to pay more than $5.56, the average. At the time of writing this, over 27,000 Humble Mobile Bundles have been sold generating over $150,000. You can watch the video after the break to learn more about the games.

Can you say Epic?! Well, last week Gameloft posted some artwork to tease a new addition to their family and yesterday they released a trailer for this new game called “Wild Blood.” Powered by the Unreal engine, the game looks to be incredibly smooth and makes me want to jump right in, and yield my sword to fend off enemies! I know, I get a little intense when it comes to games like this. Hit the break to check out the beautiful scenery and graphics in the Wild Blood trailer.
We just showed you a hands on demo of Frontline Commando on the Nexus 7 but figured we wouldn’t stop there. Many of you have questions about gaming on Google’s new 7-inch tablet and we have another demo video to show you how great the experience really is. Gameloft’s The Amazing Spiderman game just launched in the Play Store for $6.99 and looks awesome on the 7-inch form factor. Jump past the break to check it out and be sure to let us know what you think! Are you surprised to see such high quality games for the Nexus 7 already?
As if there wasn’t enough racing games in the Play Store to keep your need for speed at bay for at least a year, Gameloft is gearing up to add yet another one to the mix. Asphalt 7: Heat will be available for download on June 25th and should provide you race fans another outlet to get your fix. This 7th installment in the Asphalt series will have 15 licensed tracks, 60 cars, and looks to have some improved graphics as well. Unfortunately, you will have to wait until next week to get in on the action but in the meantime you can check out the official trailer below to see what’s to come. Anyone interested?
Ever noticed how Android games are becoming more and more refined yet the ability to control them hasn’t? We are starting to see console quality games on phones and tablets and even more so on Tegra 3 devices. The only problem with having these awesome games is that the on screen touch controls never really seem to improve. I’ve found that the best way to play a game on my tablet is with a Bluetooth controller but when I want to use my phone I find that propping up the device when I am out and about can be quite annoying. Enter PowerA’s Moga bluetooth game controller for Android devices, a sure fire end to annoying game play on Android smartphones.
Up until today, the only way you could get Popcap’s smash hit, Plants vs. Zombies, on your Android device was through the Amazon Appstore. It seems that Amazon had exclusive Android rights to the game before the Android Market could get a hold of it, but today that is old news as Popcap announces the availability of Plants vs Zombies and Peggle in the Android Market.
Both games are available now and can be downloaded for $2.99 through one of the download links below. If you are new to either of these games, let us know what you think.
Plants vs. Zombies – North America / Rest of World
Peggle – North America / Rest of World
