    This is my kind of sports game. Completely unrealistic and over the top with fast paced gameplay and a a great sense of humor. Also, Fire. A lot of fire. I am of course referring to NBA Jam by EA Sports, the revival of the 1993 Midway arcade title of the same name. This release does a great job of preserving the spirit of the original, and it’s great fun. It’s probably one of the greatest basketball games of all time to be honest, as long as you don’t care about realism and all that. more »

    Cytus is a new music and rhythm game from Rayark. It’s well done, with fun mechanics, good songs (although that’s quite subjective), and nice visuals. This Android version of the game is far less stable than the iOS version and it froze on me quite a few times, but all in all it’s the same great game and a worthy addition to the collection of any music game fan. more »

    Gene Effect is an outstanding new action adventure title from Lightstorm3D. It takes many of the same themes and ideas of a game like Waking Mars, with a similar sense of discovery and wonderment, but executes on them in a different way. Things get pretty hectic as you pilot a simple mining vessel, called the Triton, through a cavernous alien world, collecting resources and relics while also uncovering a mystery or two. It's not a perfect game, with some pacing issues down the line, but it does so much right that you'll probably overlook the flaws. more »

    Terry Cavanagh is one of those rare designers who makes all of his own games by himself, aside from the music. As such, they are usually smaller titles with more simplistic art, though that simple pixel art often fits a cohesive style that makes it stand out anyway. While he usually makes platformers, like VVVVVV or Don't Look Back, another game of his on Android, his latest foray into game development is this super challenging super unique game called Super Hexagon. more »

    It's not often at all that a game like Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery comes along. Not only did it manage to innovate while being retro, but it also gained a massive following of people despite all its experimental game design and visual style. SS&SEP was a game changer when it released for iOS in early 2011, and we finally have it on Android. As if to tempt fate or spit in the face of it, it was actually released by developers Capybara Games to Google Play on December 21st, 2012! Fun facts for you. more »

    At first glance, especially looking at still image screenshots of the game, Blood Run from NobStudio looks like another uncreative by-the-book endless runner, but seeing the thing in motion and actually playing it shatters that preconception. From the brutal, combat based gameplay to the stylized animation, this game surprises you at every turn. It definitely has its shortcomings, and is pretty limited in its scope, but it’s definitely worth a look from runner fans. more »

    Shark Dash is a new title from Gameloft, and it’s not based on some kind of console franchise? It’s actually an original concept, and not an emulation of some kind? Huh. Well, the originality of the title can be debated, as it definitely has inspirations in other physics based puzzlers, using the same kind of arcing and flinging catapult gameplay of Angry Birds and the rest. Still, it’s a very creative title with amusing, colorful visuals and top notch production values. more »

    Gravity Project is a new auto runner from Alper Sarikaya. For a frame of reference, it's a lot like Temple Run, with the same third person perspective, jumping, and sliding. However, instead of being endless, it presents specifically designed levels, and instead of turning left and right, you actually get to rotate the gravity of the tunnel that you're running through. Some aspects of the app seem rather amateurish, but the creative mechanics and sci-fi aesthetics definitely make it worth a download. more »
