Atari has published RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 to Google Play for Android devices, allowing players the opportunity to become the world’s best roller coaster creator. In the game, you play as an amusement park owner who must build the greatest park the world has ever known, and the game gives you plenty of coasters and attractions to do so. (more…)
A new feature has been introduced to developers by Google, which will allow you and your friends to compete side-by-side in select games in the upcoming future.
The introduction is of Nearby Multiplayer in Google Play Games, which will allow developers to create challenges and cooperative experiences based on the locations of you and your friends. (more…)
The folks over at Humble Bundle have added two new titles today, called So Long, Oregon and Mountain, to Humble Mobile Bundle 9 for all users.
Neither are standouts, exactly – Mountain is less a game than an ambient wallpaper, and So Long, Oregon, is side-scroller with middling reviews, but who can complain about added value without a hike in price? (more…)

A game called Daddy Long Legs hit Google Play recently, escaping my attention thanks to all of the craziness which has taken place thanks to Google and new Nexus devices. Regardless, we can talk about it now, and the game is very cool.
In the game, which is one of the more straightforward titles you will ever play in your life, you are a spider who is simply trying to walk as far as he can without toppling over. Of course, your legs are super long, so moving them perfectly in sync for perfect forward steps is somewhat of a chore. However, a chore does not properly describe the difficulty of Daddy Long Legs.

Google’s Androidify app received an update today, likely because Android L (“Lollipop“) will be unveiled later on along with a new campaign surrounding the customizable Android character app. The app has been redesigned, is much more share-friendly, and has new options to make the perfect version of you…as Bugdroid.
One of the new accessories – because we are buying into the hypebeast today – looks a lot like the soon-to-be-announced Nexus 6. You can see it on the character I created in the image above. It resembles a Moto X, the phone the Nexus 6 is designed around, with that back dimple and camera placement. Yep, I would say that that is it. (more…)
