EA really enjoys the free-to-play model for games (the download is free, but a ton of the content is made available through in-app purchases) and they’re keeping up that trend with the release of the Android version of FIFA 2014. The massive 1.35 GB game is incredibly detailed and realistic, and contains 33 leagues, over 600 licensed teams, and more than 16,000 players. That’s an impressive statistic for a mobile game.
The game itself has been completely optimized for touch-screen controls and tablets, so it won’t be a clunky shadow of the bigger versions of FIFA 2014. It also comes with many of the modes from the bigger games that make FIFA so popular, including EA’s Ultimate Team in which you buy and trade player cards to build your ultimate team. Three of the modes in the game (Tournament, Manager, and Kick Off!) require an in-app purchase to be unlocked.

Asphalt is an extremely popular racing franchise for mobile devices that’s really come close to blurring the lines between console gaming and mobile gaming in its last few iterations. Now that we’ve gotten a look at the trailer for Asphalt 8: Airborne, it’s safe to say that trend is going to continue.
The trailer shows off the stunning graphics that the series is known for, as well as a few new gameplay tricks, including launching your car off of objects on a track and pulling off stunts in the air. Realistic? Probably not. Awesome? Definitely. It’s also coming with a brand new physics engine, 180 events, and 47 cars to test drive. Pretty impressive for a mobile game, right? Also, if you’ve managed to pick up a new Nexus 7, Asphalt 8 is optimized to run on its uber-high-resolution screen. Excited yet? Check out the video below to really get a feel for what they’re adding.
When Google announced their Play Games service at Google I/O, it was a really cool concept that was only missing one piece; a central app to look at your games and really cement the social aspect of it. Well, they’ve finally released that final piece of the puzzle as Google Play Games on the Play Store, available to any device running Android 2.2 and up.
The app allows you to see all of your games and achievements as well as view what your friends have been playing. It also tracks every game that you’ve bought or installed tied to your account, so you can browse it and see what you’re in the mood to play. It’s a small app, and if you play many games on your device, it’s definitely worth picking up. Hit the links below to check it out.
Like all Marvel superhero movies, we can expect to get some kind of tie-in game, and as usual, it’s from Gameloft. Thor: The Dark World is no exception, as Gameloft has released a teaser trailer for their upcoming Thor game that’s slated for release to the Play Store sometime in the fall.
The game itself looks like a traditional top-down dungeon crawler, Diablo style, but that’s not a bad thing. Everything in the trailer looks like it’ll make a fun time-waster, and Gameloft hinted at having a few other playable characters alongside Thor. There will also supposedly be over 100 missions and will include enemies from the movie, so this might even be a game some of us are still playing even after Thor’s made his exit from the theater spotlight. I guess we’ll find out later this year. Hit the break below for the trailer (it’s really short, only about 40 seconds) and the press release from Gamestop.

Following up on that announcement, a teaser video was released today that gives us a look at some of the gameplay we can expect. The game’s developer, 5Ants, has brought a Rovio look and feel to the title, though it does not appear to involve any flicking or flinging of objects on screen. Instead, users will have to use their brains to solve puzzles and find hidden objects as they work their way through thirty different stages. Hit the break to view the video.
