SNK Playmore brings King of Fighters ’98 to Android

If you enjoyed the arcade beat-em-up era of the late 90s, then you might have played this fighting game favorite – King of Fighters.

Timberman is here to frustrate you, waste your time

Remember that time when all you could think about was get that bird flying (flapping? *wink*) through those darned pipes?

Europe fights against ‘free’ label for apps with IAP

By the end of September, the European Union has reached an agreement with Google that it will stop using the “free app” label for programs with “in-app purchases” (IAPs) in the Google Play Store.

That is why there are a lot of security/locate-my-phone apps out there in the market. The issue is in finding one that is intuitive and smart as it is practical for the user. The “Theftie – Find My Phone” app is not the perfect handset security app, but it has potential, and it is free to download.

4096 Hexa game app is 2048 on steroids

Some people have called the impossibly addictive download hit game “2048” as “Flappy Bird for math geeks”. To a certain point, we would agree to that, given the number of people on our social network timelines posting their 2048 game progress. But because we live in a global society where it’s getting more difficult to lengthen attention span – and because four corners are not enough – we bring you 4096 Hexa, and be scared now, because it is exactly what you think it is.

SoulCraft 2: League of Angels now out for Android

It would be an understatement for us to say that MobileBits’ first SoulCraft game was a success in terms of showing mobile platform gamers what was actually possible in terms of graphics and gameplay for Android and casual games. But don’t look now, MobileBits is out with its second RPG/Action game in SoulCraft 2: League of Angels, which serves as the logical sequel to the impressive first SoulCraft game.

5 free HD video players for Android you should try

With the proliferation of high definition video – whether streaming or in file form – available for Android devices, and with the ever-improving video performance and higher video resolutions being shipped with handsets and tablets, one would now start to understand the need of a great media player application that will be able to handle such content. Given that the stock Android players that come together with your new devices would probably be able to handle most of the file types out there, it would be unbecoming of any user to not look around the Google Play Store and see the multitude of options – free options at that! – available. So we took it upon ourselves to give you our top 5 free HD video apps.
