Square Enix has released their classic RPG, Final Fantasy VI, onto the Play Store. It’ll cost you $15.99 which is definitely more than the latest version of Angry Birds, but it’s packed with a lot more content, too.
Square has reworked the graphics to give them a more modern feel, and the controls have been altered to work on touchscreen devices. Overall, if you’re a fan of Final Fantasy games, this one’s definitely worth the price of admission. Hit the link below for the download. Read more
Sega is continuing their tradition of releasing Sonic the Hedgehog games on mobile devices, with the latest being Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed. It’s a little pricey at $4.99, but there’s a laundry list of features to make it a compelling purchase.
There are 10 available characters to choose from, each with their own unique transforming vehicle, with more scheduled to be released at some point in the future. The tracks are dynamically generated and there are multiple routes, power ups, and road hazards to deal with, which adds some replayability to the same courses. The control scheme has also been tailored for mobile devices, and Sega has built in full controller support if you use a mobile gamepad. Read more

If you had a PlayStation 2 back in 2004, you probably owned a copy of Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Now, with mobile gaming becoming very popular, one of the best-selling games of all-time is now available in the Play Store for Android devices. Even if you have never played a GTA game, you know what they are about. In this one, you play as CJ Johnson travelling across the California-like state of San Andreas in the early 1990s. All of the usual features of the series are present and Rockstar Games has remastered the graphics to suit the power of today’s smartphones.

If you ever thought you might be able to design a better game than what what you can find in Google Play or maybe you just want to implement your own spin on a game genre, a new app slated for release in the first quarter of 2014 may just be the ticket you were looking for. Createrria is an app coming to the Android platform, and later in the year to iOS, that will let users create and share games for Android. In an interesting twist, you will not need a computer to put all the code together and generate an app as everything will be handled within the Createrria app on an Android device. Read more
Dead Trigger 2 has received an update today that includes a few new features, tweaks, and gameplay balancing. The new gameplay is focused on giving players more environments to grind through, since many of the upgrades and equipment are still fairly tedious to get in the game.
There are also a handful of issues that have been balanced, including some zombie difficulty. Hit the break below for the full changelog and download link. Read more
Those free apps always get you. To keep playing, or at least at a reasonable pace, you have to throw money at the game. One dollar for extra “game bucks,” or three dollars to skip the level… Whatever it is, they’re almost always annoying and continuously get in the way of actually enjoying a game.
Today, Google is working with some top game developers to bring a series of sales on in-app content for top games in the Play Store. Hit the break for a list of games and the offers.
Major League Baseball has released a new app into the Play Store that puts you behind the plate to become the best player in the league. MLB Franchise MVP allows you to choose from more than 120 teams from Class A, Double-A, Triple A, and Major League baseball. Every position on the field is yours to take, ranking up along the way to enhance your skills. This is a free-to-play game; therefore, you don’t have to spend anything, but you’ll move along quicker once you spend a few bucks.

If you love RPGs, then you probably enjoy the Final Fantasy series. The original Final Fantasy IV was released twenty-two years ago, and After Years arrived for Japanese phones in 2008. Now the sequel is available on Android for just $15.99 in the Play Store. Of course the majority of mobile gamers won’t be seeking to purchase this game as it’s really meant for loyal Final Fantasy and RPG fans. There’s a big difference between dropping a dollar for something like Angry Birds and sixteen for a Final Fantasy port.

If you’re into Nimblebit’s “Tiny Towers” game, then you’ll certainly love it with a taste of everyone’s favorite sci-fi franchise.
The “Tiny Death Star” game, made by the folks over at Nimblebit in the same vein as their hit, “Tiny Towers,” challenges players to build a Death Star (which surprisingly has convenience stores and restaurants built in) in order to raise enough revenue to complete the Death Star and take over the galaxy. It’s a bit of a stretch, but it’s a comical spin-off of the Star Wars series, and promises to be highly addictive. NPCs will come in and out of the Death Star even while you’re not playing (real time component built in) and purchase merchandise from your virtual shops, and buy apartments, etc.
The game also builds in random mini-games in which you’ll have to search for spies or tend to bounty hunters, adding to the Star Wars theme of the game. Hit the break for a video, screens, and a link to the app in the Play Store.
