Trend Micro retracts exaggerated Play Store malware claim

We are most likely used to how companies tend to bend the truth a bit to sell their products, but sometimes things can get quite out of hand. That might just be the case when Trend Micro published a blog post which painted a picture of Google Play Store that was too horrifying to be true, only to later "clarify" the exact point that the cyber security firm was trying to make.

Google Play now has ‘Offline Games’ section

If there’s one thing casual gamers hate (with the fire of a thousand suns), it’s those single player casual games that require you to have internet connection. It just defeats the purpose of casual gaming. You want to pass the time and chill out, play a couple of games. Adding the internet requirement just boosts the stress level up a couple of notches. So yes, this is a good move for Google Play – to promote games that don’t need a live internet connection.

SNK Playmore brings King of Fighters ’98 to Android

If you enjoyed the arcade beat-em-up era of the late 90s, then you might have played this fighting game favorite – King of Fighters. This particular arcade game has been ported to a number of consoles because of its huge nostalgia hit and immense replay value. And yes, game creators SNK Playmore are now bringing this to Android devices. Should be a blast.

Timberman is here to frustrate you, waste your time

Remember that time when all you could think about was get that bird flying (flapping? *wink*) through those darned pipes? We are not heralding the return of the app-which-shall-not-be-named, but as much as mindless casual gaming is concerned, Timberman is probably set to give you sleepless and frustrated nights again.

Europe fights against ‘free’ label for apps with IAP

By the end of September, the European Union has reached an agreement with Google that it will stop using the “free app” label for programs with “in-app purchases” (IAPs) in the Google Play Store. The EU has been concerned that the label “free” is misleading for those apps that push their sales within the app itself, and has asked Google to back them on this.

Dino Hunter now available at Google Play Store

If ever you get interested in a dinosaur shoot ‘em up game for your Android device, now is probably the best time as any to download “Dino Hunter: Deadly Shores” from the Google Play Store. From the same guys who want you to shoot up deer in Deer Hunter, this new game is a prehistoric hunting extravaganza for those who want to know what it felt like to hunt these huge lizards.

Theftie app gives device theft security for free

A lost smartphone – whether by theft or by a more benign misplacing – is always a problem for handheld device users. That is why there are a lot of security/locate-my-phone apps out there in the market. The issue is in finding one that is intuitive and smart as it is practical for the user. The “Theftie – Find My Phone” app is not the perfect handset security app, but it has potential, and it is free to download.

4096 Hexa game app is 2048 on steroids

Some people have called the impossibly addictive download hit game “2048” as “Flappy Bird for math geeks”. To a certain point, we would agree to that, given the number of people on our social network timelines posting their 2048 game progress. But because we live in a global society where it’s getting more difficult to lengthen attention span – and because four corners are not enough – we bring you 4096 Hexa, and be scared now, because it is exactly what you think it is.
