Get ready for a party, as the official launch of Ultimate Chicken Horse has commenced on Google Play for the NVIDIA SHIELD. Designed as a party game, with the title supporting up to 4 players at once, the goal is to reach the end of a level without getting destroyed by various in-level obstacles. The twist is, you design the levels.
If a level is made too easy, points are not distributed. However, if your level features plenty of saws, arrows, and other deadly devices, you score many points. Be the first to cross the finish line without taking too much damage and you win. (more…)

Fallout 4. It’s super legit. For fans of the franchise, NVIDIA has teamed up with the creators, Bethesda, launching a live wallpaper app of all things to Google Play. The Fallout 4 Live Wallpaper features an assortment of bobbleheads from the Fallout game, allowing users to deck out their home screen with their favorites.
The overall animations you will see are very basic, with the bobbleheads sitting on top of a table. When you swipe through your screens, the lighting and positioning will change, but the bobbleheads don’t move.

According to the app’s description, there are 20 Fallout 4 bobbleheads to choose from, including Sneak, Melee, Luck, and Agility. (more…)
