Languinis: Match and Spell is a hybrid puzzle game

We started out with Tic Tac Toe, and probably thought we hit the apex of the “match 3” gameplay of the puzzle game when we encountered games such as Zuma and Bejeweled. But lo and behold, them puzzle games are still here – and they have mutated. “Languinis: Match and Spell” is a puzzle game, but it is also a word game.

OPPO offers preview to ColorOS 2.1.0i, based on Android 5.0

OPPO users are relatively happy with the hardware they get on the Chinese company’s phones. The OPPO Find 7 and Find 7a are decidedly popular because they feature robust specs at a relatively low price point. It is usually the software that drives the users nuts, with OPPO seemingly very slow to update its proprietary ColorOS up to Android Lollipop standards.

Raccoon APK downloader gets a new release, UI tweaks

The Google Play Store, as much as some will hate to admit it, makes it easier for Android users to search for apps and install them – because that’s what it’s for.

If you know how much raw processing power you have in your hands in a mid-range smartphone, you would probably be surprised at what those level meant a few decades back.

Jurassic World: The Game out now for Android

Well, it didn’t take that long. We were thinking we would have to wait until the movie was released before Jurassic World: The Game was released for Android (it was released on iOS initially).

From time to time, the AT&T website throws up a surprise or two, giving us handsets and devices that were previously unannounced, not even anticipated.

Amazon shows NVIDIA SHIELD, SHIELD Pro, items down for now

We actually now have a glimpse of what NVIDIA is planning with the new NVIDIA SHIELD console, last seen and drooled at by many at the GDC 2015. Online store Amazon put up standard items for the NVIDIA SHIELD and the NVIDIA SHIELD Pro seemingly by mistake, as the items have been taken off their listings again as of writing. But not before some people noticed and took pictures and details. Good job, internet.
