The leading question in Android gaming seems to be when the heck Super Mario Run is landing on Android.
Well, according to a tweet Android Central deciphered, we should get the full Nintendo treatment on the Play Store in March.
Finally… it’s about time the popular game shed its “iOS-exclusive” tag.
Can the game maintain its must-have status on Android? The freemium nature (and relative high-dollar full game unlock cost) did give some folks pause, so we are interested in seeing how it does on Android.
In any case, we admit to being eager to try this one out. Pre-registration is still available HERE.
Get ready for a soon-to-be-launched game from Bit Craft Studios: Arrows & Sparrows.
This one is a cute, colorful slingshot shooter, filled with hungry birds intent on dive-hunting cute fish. The fish do have a few defensive tricks up their collective sleeve (like bombs and arrows), and this is what presents the challenge to the player.
Per the press release, here are some features to look forward to:
* Save the fish from hungry birds. Shoot 3 birds with as few arrows as you can!
* Turn the enemy’s attacks against them.
* Create explosive chain reactions — and blast all the birds in one shot!
* Choose from a large offering of power-ups.
* Put your skills to the test and teach those “meanie” birds a lesson!
The due date is January 25th.
The game will be free to download, with in-app purchases also being an option; check out the trailer:
What’s on your list of New Year’s Resolutions? A pledge to find a more fulfilling job? The usual promise to eat healthier and get into shape? That’s all good stuff, if a little pedestrian. Why not aim to explore the uncharted corners of an alien galaxy, explore endless planets, and name the plants and animals you find in your personal Garden of Eden?
It’s an achievable goal if you pick up No Man’s Sky for NVIDIA SHIELD. Hello Games’ utterly massive space exploration game is available through NVIDIA’s cloud-based game streaming service GeForce NOW for $59.99. It’s just what you need if the hectic holiday season has left you aching for a quiet and serene gaming experience.
No Man’s Sky drops you in a game world teeming with billions of undiscovered planets. While your mission is ultimately to find the center of the digital universe, you should definitely take time to smell the space-roses (just be careful; some species give off poisonous spores).
No Man’s Sky is mainly a game about seeing what you can see: Its procedurally-generated planets range from lush jungle worlds to barren irradiated hellscapes, and there’s an endless supply of flora and fauna waiting to be discovered and named.
As you planet-hop, you’ll also need to harvest resources, survive attacks from hostile creatures, and learn how to communicate with alien traders.
If you own an NVIDIA SHIELD, No Man’s Sky can be purchased for unlimited streaming via GeForce NOW. If you buy the game on GeForce NOW you will also get a free code to download and enjoy the game on PC, too. A GeForce NOW membership is free to try out for one month and just $7.99 a month after that.

Some games are about skill, some will challenge your mental capabilities and others have a story to tell. There are also some games that are just exercises in repetition that require little thought and minimal technique. These games can be awesome and Burrito Bison – Launcha Libre is evidence of that.
The set-up is as follows – you’re a lucha libre trapped in a candy kingdom. The only way to escape is to launch yourself from the ropes and fly through the air to freedom. How this plays out is really simple. Drag your wrestler back and launch them, much like Angry Birds, and once you’re airborne you have nothing to do but tap the screen to perform a special ability.
With a choice of three wrestlers, you special ability will differ depending on who you’re playing as. One will slam into the ground at great force, one will launch a grappling hook to pull themselves onto an enemy and another can glide upward before falling back down.
So where’s the game? Well, this being an evil candy kingdom there’s gummy bears everywhere and you need to try and land on them to earn cash. There are different types of gummy bears, some that will slow you down and others that will launch you into the air, speed you up or give you a ball of honey that devours all the bears in your wake.
It’s really basic but it’s compelling because there’s a good variety of sugary enemies to bump into, each with their own unique affect on your character, and there’s loads of upgrades to unlock. You’ll need these upgrades if you want to get your wrestler to the end of each area. Getting to the end of each area is a feat but it’s blasting through the walls will let you move onto the next area of the candy kingdom. So all you need to do is make sure you keep your speed up, keep on upgrading and before you know it each run you make will consist of you breaching multiple cookie walls and destroying tons of gummy bears. Simple.
As you may be aware of, Burrito Bison – Launcha Libre is incredibly simple but it’s incredibly slick and well presented that it’s a real joy to play. Each of the enemies are well designed and fun to crash into, the 3 different wrestlers play only slightly differently but these slight differences make big differences to how you play and the audio gives every collision a real sense of power.
In the end, Burrito Bison – Launcha Libre is a very simple game but it’s made so well, has a lot of variety based around its simple premise and is incredibly generous with its advertising and IAPs. I can’t recommend Burrito Bison – Launcha Libre enough. It’s simple but it’s polished and it’s free but it doesn’t demand you watch a ton of adverts. Great stuff.
