Shooter classic Max Payne coming to Android

There's a million stories in the naked city, but former NYPD cop Max Payne has one that could be thrown in the lockup for public indecency.

Brick Force combines Android and PC platforms for Minecraft-inspired FPS

Indie smash hit Minecraft taps into that part of your brain that loves playing with Lego: simple tools, endless possibilities. Of course, one of the most fun parts of building blocks is completing your edifice, waiting about three seconds... then blowing it to smithereens. For that essential experience, look to Brick Force, a new game combining the building elements of Minecraft with the fast-paced shooter action of games like Team Fortress and Counter-Strike.

Xappr brings light-gun style gaming to your Android smartphone

As much fun as some of the latest generation Android games are, touchscreen controls leave something to be desired in the alien/zombie/robot shooting aesthetic. If startup company MetalCompass has their way, you can recreate duck hunts and zombie shoots of yesteryear with the Xappr, a light-gun style accessory for Android and iOS. Instead of sending out an infrared beam, it communicates with compatible games on your phone, allowing you to move your character or cursor with the gun and fire with the trigger. A standard headphone attachment registers clicks while a flexible clamp holds your phone in place.

Counter-Strike Portable strafes onto Android

A lot of you reading this have spent entirely too much time playing Counter-Strike, in its various computer and console iterations. That's not OK. When you're online, you should be spending your time reading the stories on your favorite Android blog (this one) and keeping hard-working bloggers under a roof. But if you wish to extend your infamy by wasting time in entirely the wrong digital avenue, you can now do it in the total absence of roofs, thanks to some even harder-working developers over at XDA. They've released an Android version of the perennial tactical shooter, and it's already surprisingly complete. If you are somehow ignorant of Counter-Strike, it's one of the most popular first-person shooter games in the world. Based on the engine in the original Half-Life PC game, it first appeared as a free download way back in 1999. The game is deceptively simple: join either the counter-terrorist or terrorist squad, equip your soldier, then fight it out in deathmatch or other modes. Players that perform well and/or survive to the next round keep their equipment and get more cash for upgrades. Players that die... don't. Thanks to its accurate weapon portrayals, speed and immense player community, Counter-Strike has remained incredibly popular even as more modern games have outpaced it in graphics. [youtube _JOwY5hT5ko] The Android version is a modification based on Counter-Strike 1.6 and running on the Unity 3D game engine. Two download versions exist at present: version 5o for Android 2.0+ ARM 6 devices, and 6i for phones and tablets with ARM 7 processors running Android 2.3 or above. According to the developers, there are more than 600 players online at the moment. Naturally the game is still in the beta phase, but the developers are welcoming bug reports and other feedback.
