The Dark Knight Rises game glides onto Google Play Store

If you're one of the many who can't seem to get enough Batman, then you'll be pleased to know that Gameloft's The Dark Knight Rises tie-in game is available now on the Google Play Store. As we told you a few days back, the game looks pretty great, and actually seems to be one of the few movie tie-in games that's worth your time. It may be worth a purchase for that reason alone, but we imagine the solid graphics and familiar gameplay will help to further sway you.

MOGA combines universal Bluetooth game pad and dev tools

I'll just come out and say it: touchscreen controls suck for action-packed, complex games like, say, N.O.V.A. 3. That's what makes the Xperia PLAY popular despite mid-range hardware, and why so much energy is expended on getting existing controllers to work with Android. MOGA isn't the first controller we've seen specifically for Android, but it does appear to be one of the best thought-out around, and it already works with games from Gameloft, Sega and others.

Carmageddon revs up for Android

Twisted Metal? Tame. Crazy Taxi? Kid's stuff. For the true connoisseur (or alternately Android bloggers looking to relive their ten-year-old gamer fantasies) Carmageddon is the cream of the crop. And thankfully, Stainless Games is bringing the much-loved and often-loathed game to Android smartphones and tablets later this year. We recommend a tailored selection of death metal to get you in the mood until then.

Mario clone The Other Brothers features actual plumbing

Nintendo's main man moonlights as a go-kart racer, pro golfer, baseball star, a  bare glove-knuckled brawler and even an unlicensed pharmacist, but the world's most famous Italian plumber is somewhat lacking in small home repair skills. An upcoming platformer dynamic duo may have Mario beat in that regard. The Other Brothers takes its inspiration from the gaming classic, but puts the gameplay against a decidedly grungy backdrop inspired by classic adventure games.

Because We May game sale brings great indie deals

Game developers are an opinionated bunch, they're thrilled that modern distribution platforms like Steam and the Google Play Store allow them to cut out the publisher middleman. To celebrate this, an impressive conglomeration of developers has banded together to create the Because We May promotion, running from today until June 1st. Almost sixty Google Play Store games have been put on sale, all of them at least half off and some of them even more.

The birds are back in town: Angry Birds Heikki landing in June

The Angry Birds are back (from outer Space) or at least they will be come June 18th. That's the day Rovio has pegged for "Angry Birds Heikki", another themed version of the ever-popular mobile game. The birds are once again dipping into the sponsorship pool, as the title references Formula 1 race car driver Heikki Kovalainen from Finland. Rovio is based in Finland, so naturally they're expressing some national pride.

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.
