Android game developers: innovate, don’t emulate

I have a confession to make: I almost never use any of my Android devices for gaming. If I want to play video games, I either find a truck to jump-start my ancient desktop computer or turn on my even more ancient Dreamcast. The fact that I'm terrible at touchscreen controls (and I am) is only part of the problem: there just isn't enough innovation on the mobile platform for me to choose it over more traditional forms of gaming.

Doro PhoneEasy 740 is Android meets Jitterbug

As someone who has personally tried to teach basic operation of a DROID 3 to a septuagenarian, let me tell you, it's not an experience to be relished. Despite manufacturer's claims to "Simplify" the admittedly complex Android user interface with a new skin, it's just as hard if not harder for the non-technically inclined to learn basic smartphone operation these days. Enter Doro and their PhoneEasy 740, an Android slider handset that's designed with an eye towards people who are, uh, rich in years.

Nvidia hints at Angry Birds sequel with richer graphics

Angry Birds has become the breakout star of the mobile gaming world, thanks mostly to its simple premise and addictive gameplay (though some rather shameless marketing hasn't hurt). But next to the likes of Shadowgun, it can't help but look a little... flat. In a recent press event Nvidia's mobile content vice president Neil Trevett spent some time speculating on Rovio's cash cow, and how the developer might be leveraging more recent mobile gaming technology for better graphics and physics.

Snake ’97 emulates your old Nokia brick, buttons and all

ShadowGun. Temple Run. Sonic 4. Do all of these dazzling 3D masterpieces leave you longing for a simpler era in mobile gaming? Do you get a warm, fuzzy feeling every time you see a movie where the hero's "top of the line" cell phone uses a black and white screen? Then you're the perfect audience for Snake '97. Forget all these fancy sprites and polygons, toss the touchscreen controls, and bask in the timeless story of dots and a line that loves to eat them. It's a free download in the Android Market.

The 10 highest-rated Android apps of 2011

As the end of the year draws nigh, just about everyone is putting together their wrap-up stories that are, let's be honest, pretty predictable if you've been following tech news for 2011. But at least one story caught our eye this morning: Mobilewalla's app scores. Mobilewalla is one of many app aggregation services, though unlike a lot of Android specific sites, it doesn't distribute its own apps. Instead it keeps a close eye on the various app platforms and offers up an updated database of apps that anyone can use. This year, the top ten list is dominated by games.
