Pivot allows one touch arcade gaming, challenges you to get high scores

The trend in mobile game development is to make the challenges out of this world, characters (both heroes and villains) look awesome and more powerful, all while still making gameplay and control more intuitive and the app a possible moneymaker with in-app purchases or banner ads.

NVIDIA is once again shuffling names, this time maybe for the last time.

Mortal Kombat coming to Android in April

Some of the newer generation gamers do not understand what the big deal was with Mortal Kombat.

But whatever it was, it made Mortal Kombat a gaming staple for generations (until Street Fighter took over its mantle). So, more nostalgia to come as Warner Bros. Interactive is set to bring Mortal Kombat to Android this April.

Madfinger announces zombie shooter called “Unkilled”
