AntiSquad Tactics: unleash your inner spy/mercenary/assassin

When you were younger, you probably dreamed of going on a super secret special mission for the CIA or a black ops team for the government.

AntiSquad Tactics is one of the newest games on Android that sends you on a mission to become the spy or mercenary or assassin that you always knew you could be.

Futu Hoki is Air Hockey on steroids

Air Hockey is probably one of those games that would always bring about an air of nostalgia for those who’ve lived in dorms or attended a frat party at least once in their life.

Well it could be, if your table was on steroids and your dorm had psychedelic decoration and if your opponents were wielding laser guns.

Foursaken’s Phantom Rift is another turn-based RPG for Android

Foursaken Media, an all-sibling outfit which brought you the mildly addictive Block Fortress on iOS, now tries its hand at Android RPG gaming with Phantom Rift, a turn-based grid-driven RPG that would be as at home on your Gameboy Advance as on your Android device. The game is loosely based on the Mega Man Battle Net, a grid-based action game on the aforementioned legacy console.

Not a lot of us will have memories of Sega’s Dreamcast, because it was never as big as Sony’s Playstation.

Sega is now releasing the newest incarnation of the classic with Crazy Taxi: City Rush, a free-to-download game for your Android devices.

Red Bull Air Race app now on Android

What do you get when you pump a person full with Red Bull (it’s an energy drink, if you’ve lived out in the boonies until today) and then let them race airplanes that fly ridiculously close to the ground? Nothing good in real life, but these are the images that flood the head when you understand that Red Bull has been sponsoring an air race since the early 2000s. In the interest of safety (we kid, of course), it has transferred that experience on to your Android devices.

Spider-Man Unlimited game crawls onto Android

Fans of Spider-Man have a new game to check out on compatible Android devices. The game is called Spider-Man Unlimited and it comes from Gameloft. This isn't your typical looking video game, it is designed to look like a hand-drawn comic book, and it looks very cool.
