Classic arcade game Q*bert now rebooted for Android

Arcade game nostalgia has been on an all-time high when a few months ago, some websites published beloved classic games that you could play on your desktop browser.

Need for Speed to charge users for gas, restricted playtime

Electronic Arts is set to roll out this week a new mobile version of the popular car racing franchise Need for Speed for Android users, but not surprisingly and quite like car racing in the real world, EA will start charging for gas.

Smash blocks with an armadillo in Blockadillo game for Android

Armadillos may look scary (or at least to those who are afraid of mammals with shells) but mostly they're innocuous and are often victims of road accidents because they're jittery and nervous when startled. So basically, they're pretty harmless. But the armadillos in this new Android game are anything but (actually, they hardly look like armadillos) and have one purpose only: to destroy the blocks around them and get you as many points as they can.
