Auralux: Constellations, the Sequel, Now Available on Google Play

A week or so ago, I mentioned that Auralux: Constellations would soon launch on Google Play. As a big fan of the first Auralux, I was happy about this. The game is now available on Google Play, free to download, and it’s way better than I initially anticipated.

While the overall gameplay is still the same real-time strategy concept as the first title, there have been major improvements made to the graphics and feel of the game. Everything seems much smoother, especially when commanding larger forces. To go along with those updated graphics, you can even change the color of your forces, choosing primary and secondary colors. You can even change the colors of your enemies.  (more…)

Google Search Now Lets You Play Solitaire or Tic-Tac-Toe

From within the Google app (or on the desktop), you can now play solitaire or tic-tac-toe without ever installing either game. Thanks to the power of Google, each game is essentially embedded within search results, giving you quick access to two of the all-time classics.

In solitaire, Google is giving you easy or hard options, which means single card or triple card dealing. The works as you would expect, with tapping and dragging of cards until you can stack them all.  (more…)

Guess Who’s Back, Back Again, Q*Bert’s Back, for NVIDIA SHIELD

My hope is that the above headline was read to the melody of Eminem’s hit song “Without Me.” What a classic. You know what else is classic? Q*Bert is classic. To be completely honest, which is something we always strive for, I did not play Q*Bert as a child. I was born later in the 20th century, meaning by the time I was playing video games, I was on the SEGA Genesis. From what I know, there was no Q*Bert, or at least not any popular title utilizing the character of Q*Bert.

Moving right along, a new Q*Bert game called Q*Bert Rebooted is available on Google Play this morning for $6, made specifically for owners of the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV box and SHIELD Tablets. For fans of the original Q*Bert titles, I think you will be quite happy with this release. The game features classic arcade action, in addition to 30+ 3D rebooted levels to play through.  (more…)
