Unlock interlocking puzzles in new game called … Interlock

When it comes to puzzle games on mobile devices, usually it's either you match things of the same color or kind, or you put things together, or you try to find your way out of mazes and such. But this new game, available now for Android smartphones and tablets, lets you deconstruct the complicated wooden puzzles that are too interlocked with each other that they just need to be pulled apart. And of course, the game's name is Interlock, which is the opposite of what you should be doing.

Bring out your inner vigilante in Hotline Miami now on Android

"Do you like hurting other people?" That's the question that will be posed to you once you start playing this new Android game called Hotline Miami. And no, this is not an S&M sort of game, although it sounds like it.

Pirates may not be the most in thing right now, as compared to zombies and such, but we will never run out of people who are still fascinated with these kings of the high seas.

Doodle Draw is first Facebook game on Messenger

Since Facebook announced last April that they were opening up the Messenger API to app developers, we knew it was only a matter of time until games finally come on board. But while there were a lot of GIFs, video, and even talking pet apps, we had yet to see one that you could really call a game on this message platform. But now, the first "official" game has arrived, and Doodle Draw may be something familiar to those who played a similar game a few years back.
