ICE Features Real-time Strategy Gameplay With Ant-like Minions

We came across a game this afternoon on Google Play, filled with bright colors, sporting the name ICE. The game is a real-time strategy title, which resembles another popular game called Auralux.

Just Dance Now Lands on Google Play, Time to Get Your Groove On

Ubisoft Entertainment launched Just Dance Now, one of the more popular video game titles of the last few years, right onto Google Play for Android devices this week. In these games, which are much like an at-home Dance Dance Revolution, players must dance to the moves that are displayed on a TV, using a Kinect or Wii remote to track body movements.

Once downloaded onto your Android device, the game needs a display hooked up to the Internet to work, acting as your screen to show you which moves you need to pull off. Your phone then acts as the motion tracker.  (more…)

Deal: NES30 Bluetooth Controller Will Take You Back to the 80s for $29

With a growing number of games supporting Bluetooth controllers on Google Play, it may be time to invest in a piece of hardware that will take your mobile game playing to the next level.

Gameloft Launches Asphalt Overdrive, Ryan Gosling’s Favorite Racing Game

Gameloft has a new title on Google Play this week, one which should have Ryan Gosling’s character from Drive quite excited. The game is called Asphalt Overdrive, set right on the streets of “modern 80s” Southern California.

While the gameplay looks like  your typical Gameloft action-packed racing variety, the soundtrack is what gained my attention. Infused with fast-paced techno and house beats, you will race down the streets in brightly colored Lamborghinis and Ferraris, hoping to avoid cops in their souped-up muscle cars.  (more…)

This week, they are handing out $135 worth of apps for completely free, and a few of the titles are absolutely worth the hassle of downloading their mobile marketplace.  (more…)
