3 Android Games Worth Owning: Alto’s Adventure, Lost in Harmony, and One More Dash

It’s only early April, but already, plenty of new games have been hitting Google Play, swooping mobile gamers up out of their daily lives, placing them in fantastical realms of imagination, wonder, and excitement. Being quite the fan of mobile gaming, as well as console gaming, it has been a real joy watching many premium titles be made available for mobile devices, lifting up the entire Android platform as a whole. Whether you are an intense player with a game controller accessory, or maybe just a porcelain throne warrior looking for 10 minutes of enjoyment, there is something for everyone on Google Play.

The latest three games I have compiled land right in the middle for everyone. As a fan of more intense titles, Alto’s Adventure has been a real treat or me, as it’s the perfect mix of challenge and relaxation. Nothing beats carving down a mountainside. In addition, One More Dash will give the compulsive crowd something to cheer about, while Lost in Harmony is made for those who might want to escape for 30 minutes to an hour. Regardless of your play style, one of these three titles should suit you.

Here are 3 Android games worth owning.  (more…)

Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings Now Available for SHIELD Android TV, Priced at $20

With MLB’s spring training in full swing, Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings could not have picked a better time to launch onto Google Play. Made for use on the SHIELD boxes from NVIDIA, Super Mega Baseball brings a comprehensive, yet easy-to-learn baseball game system. If you care about things such as complete pitching and batting stats, while also getting the sense that you are playing a game made for the Nintendo Wii, this is the game for you.  (more…)

Saiyan Battle is the Straightforward Dragon Ball Z Fighter You Need

If we have any Dragon Ball Z fans here, check out Super Battle for Goku Devil on Google Play. This game is as straightforward as can be, having you play as a Super Saiyan warrior. Like you would see in earlier Mortal Kombat games, you play one boss at a time, moving your way up the ladder to more difficult opponents.

The first few rounds are easy, with plenty of energy to spare on all of your favorite moves, such as the Ki Blast, Kamehameha, Dragon Recall, and Big Bang Attack. However, as you progress, encountering boss characters you should recall from the franchise, their attacks become very powerful, and eventually, you may fall victim to their strength.  (more…)

A new Humble Bundle is live for all to see, and this time around, is offering quite a few premium titles at a pay what you want price. The way it works is simple.

Right now, Humble Bundle is offering Lara Croft GO, Prune, Framed, Grim Fandango, Sorcery! 3, and others in this bundle. For the $6 set price, this is a very good deal.  (more…)

You Will Soon Test Drive Games Straight From Google Search

Buried inside of a list of changes for app developers on Android, Google has announced that users will soon see an option to test drive applications, games in particular, directly from Google Search results. This is essentially an expansion of Google’s previous “Stream” option for mobile apps that was announced back in November. When enabled on Google’s servers and by developers from their development console, if a user Google’s “Panda Pop,” for example, a button for “Try Now” will appear. When hit, folks can play a bit of the game, then choose to install the title right from Google Play.  (more…)

Fallout Shelter Update to Bring Item Crafting, Dweller Customization, and More

An upcoming update for Fallout Shelter is bringing a lot of new features, a few of which should add plenty of exciting gameplay opportunities. The big change – item crafting. Junk, exactly like the kind you would find in Fallout 4, can be used to craft new armor and weapons. Dwellers exploring the Wasteland with a high level of Luck can find junk, and you will be able to receive junk from Lunchboxes. To craft items from the junk, two rooms have been added into the game; Weapon and Armor crafting rooms.  (more…)

Wake Up to the Radio or YouTube Videos With PocketBell Alarm Clock

PocketBell, a radio alarm clock, may be my new favorite thing. For years it seems, I used Timely, then after that team “joined” Google, I used the stock Android alarm app. It works fine, but if you might be looking for something a bit more fancy, PocketBell is for you.

When setting an alarm, you can choose what type of audio you want to be awoken to. You can set it as a standard alarm ringer that is already installed on your phone, a music file you have, radio station, or even a YouTube video. If you look at the header image above, you can see I set a Droid Life Show episode as an example of this feature. If the buzzers and ringers that come with your phone suck, this app is your answer.  (more…)
