We’ve seen games for Android Wear before, with the most recent being a Flappy Bird clone. However, SWIP3 is a game which has been designed specifically for the miniature display of Android Wear smartwatches. It’s a classic puzzle solving game which is based on aligning three blocks of the same color. At first glance, it’s reminiscent of the classic Tetris, but the gameplay is slightly different here as it involves a lot of swiping. It’s not surprising that game developers have begun leveraging the relatively smaller...

Disruptor Beam & Kongregate have launched Game of Thrones Ascent on the Google Play Store. This GoT game has been around for quite some time and only recently made its way to mobile with iOS getting it in March followed by Android now. It has a large following on Facebook as well with close to 2.5 million players, so the chances are that you’ve already heard about this game before. The game mostly follows the story line of the TV series and is updated periodically with necessary plot changes. But with the fourth season concluded,...

A whole lot can change in the shifty tech décor in the space of nine months. Heck, even one month sometimes makes a world of difference. Take last month. Lenovo rolled out a slew of A-series budget-conscious slates, HP and Toshiba one-upped each other with the dirt-cheap 7 Plus and Excite Go, and Asus refreshed the increasingly successful MeMo Pad family. Just like that, we got half a dozen of brand new contenders at the low-cost, lightweight crown, and in case our little listicle from back October 2013 wasn’t dated enough, all these...

The Deer Hunter app is quite popular with gaming enthusiasts of the current generation. The game also made its way to Android three years ago, bringing the classic hunting action to casual gamers as well. And the makers of the app have also launched Dino Hunter: Deadly Shores not too long ago based on the same premise, but with the subjects being dinosaurs instead of deer. It’s a freemium app, which means users can download it for free but will have the option of in-app purchases to increase the pace of continuity. It’s a...

The NVIDIA Shield 2 is nearing launch as we all know. And a new report from BBC has confirmed today that the device will indeed be featuring the Tegra K1 chipset which was announced earlier this year. The report simply mentions this device as an upcoming gaming console from NVIDIA, but it doesn’t take much effort to connect the dots from there. Needless to say, the device will be running Android out of the box and will be able to access the vast library of titles from the Play Store. It is believed that the device will also be...

Sega has just introduced Sonic Jump Fever on the Google Play Store today, much to the delight of retro gaming fans. This comes two years after the developer launched Sonic Jump on Android, so this is an improved version of the first gen title with better graphics and overall gameplay. Perhaps the most important change here is that Sonic Jump Fever is a free app with reliance on in-app purchases, unlike the predecessor which asked users to pay upfront with in-app purchases merely adding to the overall gameplay. With Sonic Jump Fever,...

Bigger is arguably always better, but small doesn’t need to be poor. It’s what many an Android top dog have comprehended of late, selling bundles of compact, reasonably priced, reasonably specced flagship clones. It’s easy to explain the appeal of a well-thought “Mini” device, and it’s no surprise the battle for supremacy in the mid-range arena is about to reach the level of intensity and competitiveness of the high-end war. Maybe we’re not there yet, particularly as OEMs like LG continue to deliver ill-advised mini efforts...

The series is quite popular with fans for being one of the best first person shooter games available for mobile devices, which isn’t a surprise coming from a top billing developer like Gameloft. The game will be priced at $6.99, which is expected for a game of this caliber. And also new is the addition of a combined single-player and multiplayer experience,...
