Be the best Snake Eyes in G.I. Joe: Strike, now on Android devices

The G.I Joe movies may have been less than satisfactory, both with critics and the box office, but those who are still hard-core fans of the franchise will always have video games to go back to. The latest mobile game from developers Backflip Studios Inc now bring you G.I Joe: Strike, bringing back the "iconic commando" Snake Eyes as he undergoes another covert (although it looks more overt than covert) mission against perennial enemy Storm Shadow.

Sword of Xolan oozes with old-school, pixel art style

There won't be an end to game developers releasing pixel-art platformer games simply because old geeks love them. They bring a sense of nostalgia to anyone who started with games on Atari, Game & Watch, or the Nintendo Entertainment System. There's something special about games like 'Sword of Xolan' that gamers my age love. It must be the old-school simplicity that brings us back to childhood.

Dolphin Emulator for Android to take advantage of 64-bit ARM technology

If you haven’t heard of Dolphin Emulator or are not sure of what it is really, we actually wouldn’t be surprised.

But there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Crush all those caravans in this new Top Gear action game

Here’s another action game that will give you that adrenaline rush--Top Gear: Caravan Crush. The fact that it’s an official BBC Top Gear game makes it worthy of our attention.

Changes coming to Clash of Clans, level 5 dragons, anyone?

Supercell’s latest update to its genre-breaking massively multiplayer online (MMO) real time strategy game (RTS) “Clash of Clans” is a little bit bigger than what regular players are used to, so it would be wise to expect a good number of changes within the game with this update.

Brain It On to challenge your thinking and mobile drawing style

Sometimes, you want to play brainless games where you just match 3 or you slice some fruits. There are times when you want to let out your inner brute in violent, combat games.

A new game called Brain It On will do the third thing we mentioned, and if you're in the mood for that type of mobile game, then you'd probably enjoy this one.
