#TBT: The First Five Apps We Installed on Android

Whenever I setup a new Android phone, I typically dive through the super long list of apps I have previously downloaded under the “All” section of Google Play. Since I never take the time to delete the apps I’ll never use again from that list, I get a very detailed timeline of myself as an Android user, remembering times when all of these apps were brand new titles on the Android Market back in the day.

For today’s #TBT, I’d like to share the first five apps I ever installed on my “OG” DROID all those years ago. Kellen will be sharing his, too.  (more…)

Mini Metro, Build Subway Systems in Real-World Locations

In all my years playing video games, I didn’t think a title about building a subway system could be any fun. Well, publisher Playdigious found a way, thanks to a new game on Google Play called Mini Metro.

In Mini Metro, you are tasked with building subway systems in real locations around the world. Unlike a Bridge Constructor game, Mini Metro is extremely minimalistic. Essentially, your construction will look like an actual subway map you would see at a station, with the different colored lines and stations(more…)

The Uncertain is a 3D Adventure Game in a Post-Apocalyptic Setting

The Uncertain, published for SHIELD Android TV owners, is available on Google Play priced at $14.99. In this game, which has quite the story to it, you play as an Engineering Robot who seems quite curious about the human race that has been extinct for quite some time.

On Earth now, a race of robots live in complete harmony, not ruled by war, and remain completely logical in all aspects of robotic life. Better said by the game’s description, “Imagine that you have to make a moral choice in a world with no such term as morality. Every decision made here is a set of zeros and ones, and sometimes it has nothing to do with common sense.” (more…)
