Carmageddon was a game made in the late 90′s that saw it’s share of banning and censorship around the globe, and in case you were interested, it’s now available on your Android device thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign. This is the game’s first major release since an early 2000′s console port to the Nintendo 64, and for the first day, it’s going to be free. Unfortunately, Google doesn’t allow free apps to turn into paid apps in the Play Store, so after the 24 hours are up, the promo version will be pulled from the store and therefore won’t receive any updates. You can still opt for the paid version or use the demo version afterwards if you want to get updates to the app.
So if you want to test drive the game before you make a full purchase, hit the links after the break to check it out. Don’t wait too long, though.
Humble Mobile Bundle has done it again! Above and beyond the games we previously reported for the Humble Mobile Bundle with Android 5, they have gone and added another 3 games. As was the case last time, the additional games will not cost a penny if you have already purchased the bundle, and will cost a mere $5.57 (at the time of this post) for new purchases. This price will get you the original six bundle games, Contre Jour, Anomaly Korea, Plants vs. Zombies, Bladeslinger, The Rooma and Metal Slug 3, coupled with the additional 3 new games:
- Funky Smugglers
- Raiden Legacy

If you’ve been itching for a new game to play and happen to have a Tegra device, we’ve got a new game that’s going to consume hours of your free time for the next week or two. Ravensword: Shadowlands is a deep, engrossing RPG with a ton of features and polish. From an open 3D world to weapon and armor crafting to a lockpicking system, it’s a meticulously crafted game that is almost as if an Elder Scrolls game hit the mobile platform. And, if your phone or tablet sports a Tegra processor, you’re going to get even more graphical enhancements to make the game that much better.
The price tag is a little steep at $7, but with as many features as this game has, I’m sure your wallet can forgive you, just this once. And after spending over 300 hours in Skyrim, I think I’m definitely going to have to give this one a try. Who’s with me? Hit the break below to get your hands on the download.

Though the Humble Bundle 5 package has only been on the market for a few days now, they have already managed to raise over $1 Million in donations.

That’s right ladies and gents, the ever popular Angry Birds mobile game is hitting the big screen! For those of you that just can’t get enough of your favorite angry birds kicking pig butt, now you won’t have to. Plans are in works to release a 52-episode animated series of the angry fowls and their porky nemesis’ this month.
Back when Angry Birds first hit the scene their goal was to hit 100 Million downloads (lifetime). Well, they have far surpassed that number and are still going! Angry Birds has just broken the 1.7 Billion download mark, and there is no end in sight. They are like the Energizer bunny, they just keep going, and going, and going…. You get the point.
A simple game that features a cartoonish design, a cuddly monster as a main character and the simple premise of jumping over coins in order to get major air can’t be the blueprint for an addictive game… can it? Well friends— Mega Jump brings those three components and effectively combines each to be what has to be not only one of the most painfully underrated games available, but an addictive game as well to hit gamers’ hands. What’s an even bigger crime is the fact that while the game is incredibly challenging to say the least, the gameplay is simplistic enough to have casual to hardcore gamers picking up the game and playing immediately— and with a minimal learning curve too. Read on to see what the game is about and why it may be worth your time.
NVIDIA is back on their blog today about their new Tegra 4 chips, this time with information about games primed for Tegra powered devices. Games are a great way to show off the computing power of a new chip as NVIDIA demonstrates in a couple videos from Zombie Driver and RU Golf. With more computing power, graphics can display better textures and more polygons, making for smoother results. The new Tegra 4 chip will also let game developers take advantage of features like dynamic lighting to create accurate shadows.
Amazon has announced a new currency system, appropriately titled Amazon Coins, for its Kindle Fire lineup. The Coins can be used on the Kindle Fire (and presumably other Android devices as well) to buy apps, games, and most importantly, in-app content. And when it launches in May, Amazon’s going to be giving away “tens of millions of dollars” of Coins to users to kickstart the program. Afterwards, the coins will be available to purchase normall. All applications submitted to the App Store before April 25th will be able to exchange the Amazon Coins automatically.
This isn’t a new concept, as it’s similar to what Facebook does for their games and apps, but I think it’ll be interesting to see how Amazon puts its own spin on the idea. In their press release, they made a bold claim that they see higher revenue per user than any other Android platform. Although they didn’t give any specific numbers for us to dissect, if its true, this Coins idea is definitely going to help change the way we view application stores and markets, which is better for consumers and developers. We’ll be sure to let you know if any more details pop up between now and May.
Ingress, Google’s augmented reality capture-the-flag meets X-Files game, has begun its evolution. The app, updated to version 1.20, has improved rendering, fixed a few bugs and FINALLY allows players to enable/disable email notifications. It’s still in closed beta with a scarce number of access keys, but active players saw portals pop up at Zipcar and Jamba Juice locations this Tuesday.
Portals were originally located at museums, libraries, historic landmarks and other points of interest in Google’s massive database. Players have since been able to submit portal site submissions to NianticLabs@Google. Tuesday’s round of portal creation, however, marks the first time Google has attempted any form of monetizing the game.
Check out our initial Ingress announcement for a brief recap of the game. Those interested in joining the resistance can still request an invite from Ingress.com. Those leaning toward joining the enlightened should really reconsider.
