OUYA reaches 1,000 games milestone

It seemed almost like an impossible dream, but they've definitely done it. OUYA has just marked its 1,000th game, reaching that number that any non-mainstream gaming platform can only dream of. It was an achievement two years in the making, and one that perhaps almost never came to be. OUYA and its community definitely have one more thing to be thankful for this holiday.

Monument Valley adds more chapters in latest update

If you're a heavy mobile gamer, by this time after you've played countless match-3 puzzles, endless runners and RPG's, you've probably become a little jaded by all the usual games. But if you haven't heard of Monument Valley yet, then you're missing out on a lot, especially now that their latest update brings even more chapters in this puzzle game.

Blitz Racer: isometric, minimalist arcade racing game

When you think of racing games, immediately what comes to mind are simple, high-energy games with bombastic graphics and sounds. But a new game for Android devices may just be one of the most unique arcade racing games we've seen in a while. It is minimalist in design and graphics. It may be extremely difficult (unless you're one of those people who are really good at both geometry and physics). And it has shades of an endless runner game as well. Welcome to the world of Blitz Racer.

LINE releases new match 3 puzzle game Trio

Match 3 type of mobile games don't require you to think mostly, but are fun and can be great time passers (and wasters). LINE, which is mostly known for its free messaging service, has been releasing simple and fun games lately, to increase their user base and entertain the current one as well. Their newest game is called LINE Trio and it may not be something radically new, but if you're looking for the fun and the familiar, then this is a good game as any.

Weekend Game Getaway: Kingdom Rush Origins, Soulcalibur Sale

If you're planning to lock yourself up indoors this weekend, probably to gather up energy for the upcoming holiday (and sale) madness, now might be your chance to catch up on some Android gaming. And you might just be in luck! Aside from the plethora of games we've brought to your attention the past days, there are two notable ones that might deserve your glance (and maybe your money) as well.

Garfield Kart: Fast and Furry now available on Android

If you love to see the irascible feline Garfield battling it out on the race track while using different antics to distract his opponent, then you just had your Christmas wish granted a little bit earlier. Garfeld Kart: Fast and Furry is now available for Android devices, so you can enjoy racing around the track while at the same time, see characters from the comics strip that you've grown to love (or even hate).

Award-winning Banner Saga comes to Android

If you like role playing games and Norse mythology, you've probably heard of The Banner Saga, a hugely popular video game that rated 82 out of 100 on Metacritic when it first came out. It is now making its way to your smartphone or tablet with the launch of its Android version and from the looks of it, it will just be as excellent as the original PC version.

Football Manager Handheld 2015 now available on Android

You've been there, sometimes every week. You're watching your football club's weekend game when the manager makes a seemingly stupid decision that cost them the game. You scream at the TV (or in the stadium), you curse, you wail (yes, sports fans do that right?) and you say the words "If I were the manager..." Well, there's a game that has allowed frustrated football fans to take back the power, at least on their mobile devices.

Tapventures lets you defeat funny sky creatures in simple RPG

If you would like to experience role playing games that wouldn't really take that much brain cells, there are games out there that are intentionally simpler to appeal to that market. One of these games is Tapventure, which lets you defeat your (sometimes cute) enemies just by continually tapping on your screen and collecting coins along the way.

Dodo Master lets you digitally “rescue” an extinct bird

Dodos may already be (sadly) extinct, but at least it will live on through games like Dodo Master. And this is not just an Angry-Bird type of game but a well-crafted and well-tested puzzle-platformer game that lets you become a hero and save a bird and its future descendants as you try to escape from predators who would like to have scrambled Dodo eggs for breakfast.
