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.
This one looks to be a tongue-in-cheek take on living life in these interesting economic times; in fact, the game wants to be “only game to actually deal with underemployment and the need for financial literacy.”
Per the presser, the game look is distinctly cubist, and the core concept is for the player to find work. There are a few occupations to choose from in the quest to make more than one has to pay out. The jobs are time-limited mini-games like doing dishes or separating cans.
The game incorporates a karma system that rewards positive deeds, which is good, because eviction and/or starvation is a real threat if one’s bills aren’t paid on time, and good karma increases the chances of random good things occurring. Debts that aren’t squared away within a period of time have dire consequences.
Money can be used to acquire perks and the like.
It sounds like an interesting diversion, and we are looking forward to checking it out. In the mean time, we can tell you the game is scheduled for an October 11th release, and will cost $1.99 (with no other IAP); enjoy the trailer below.

Yodo1 has new game that is due out soon called Rodeo Stampede.
Some pertinent game details from the press release are below:
In most endless runners players switch from lane to lane, avoiding obstacles. In Rodeo Stampede players mount and steer cute beasts in fully 3D canyons which are not separated into lanes, providing more freedom and greater control.
Each play-through of Rodeo Stampede begins with the player riding an animal in the middle of a stampede. The player’s goal is to ride their two and four-legged friends for as long as possible by leaping from one mount to another, before one of their wildlife-rides becomes angry and throws them off. Tame and befriend new animals by riding them for a certain period of time.
Tamed animals are taken to the Sky Zoo, where players can show their collection of whimsical creatures to the public. Coins earned by completing missions and selling admission tickets can be used to expand the Sky Zoo and upgrade the animal enclosures. Remember, happy animals earn even more money!

Next week, we should see the arrival of a new game from Digidiced; this one is a mobile adaptation of Uwe Rosenberg’s popular board game Patchwork.
CORE GAMEPLAY & GAME MODES
In Patchwork, youâ€™ll go head-to-head against quilters all over the world by laying down tiles of different shapes and creating a patchwork of sorts. Youâ€™ll have to be strategic, though! With each piece of fabric placed, you move closer to the end of the time-tracking board. Go ahead and be the first one to move over a valuable single-square patch (thus stealing from the competition), but be careful: Racing to the end of the board will give you less time to build your quilt! Carefully plan each stitch and avoid creating holes — because each gap will cost you two points :)
Patchwork for mobile offers three different game modes:
— Local: Play against the A.I. in three varying difficulties (Lula/Easy, Hoo/Medium, and Ute/Hard), or share your device with another local player using the Guest option.
— Casual: Join unranked online matches — a step up from local play but not as competitive.
— Ranked: Challenge players from all over the globe in ranked matches.
— Faithful digital conversion of the award-winning board game by Uwe Rosenberg.
— Cross-platform worldwide multiplayer gameplay.
— Effective interactive tutorial.
— Analyze your best games (or learn tricks from the pros!) with the Playback function.
— Customize the interface with an ever-increasing number of backgrounds and colorful patterns.
— Challenge the A.I. in easy, medium, or hard mode.
— Consider every stitch you make in this deceivingly simple game.
February 24th is the day! The game is slated to cost $2.99 (with additional in-app purchasing opportunities), and will be cross-platform.
Battleplans sets itself apart from other RTS titles by using simple, intuitive controls that allow players to focus on making quick decisions in the heat of battle instead of navigating endless menus. The game also separates battle decisions from planning decisions, so players donâ€™t have to master both aspects at the same time while also dealing with the pressures of PvP combat.
Key features for Battleplans include:
Real-Time Tactics â€” Make decisions quickly that turn the tide of battle. Competitive Play â€” Dominate the map. Plan, attack, and defend on your schedule. Intuitive Controls â€” Easy to learn and fun to master. Quick-thinking beats quick fingers. Cross-Platform Fun â€” Attack on your tablet. Defend on your phone. Plan on your PC. Itâ€™s your choice. Plan Your Battles â€” Choose from a mix of unique heroes and units for both attack and defense.
For those interested in the PC beta, signups are underway. We’ll keep y’all posted with updates regarding the Android port. For the curious, the developer is looking to a Spring release.
As we wait on upcoming game Heroes of Skyrealm, we are happy to say we have a new trailer.
About the game:
Heroes of Skyrealm is a 3D, character-focused mobile action RPG. As the leader of a rebellious band of heroes, players take command of a city in the sky, a vast and upgradeable airship that also serves as the main interface between battles.
But the real key to Heroes of Skyrealm is combat â€“ and with responsive controls and smart companion AI, leading a 3-hero team into battle is easy and compelling. A meaty single-player campaign leads into massive, real-time 3-player co-op challenges and a wide range of PvP modes â€“ including several that put user-generated content front and center.
With a strong cast of over 30 playable characters drawn from ten distinct nations, every hero illuminates a different corner of Skyrealm. While combat and idle animations illuminate their personalities, unlockable comic vignettes delve deeper into this bright and vibrant world. Though gameplay is the core of Heroes of Skyrealm, characters are at its heart.
For players that like to tinker with builds and tactics, taking new heroes into battle and discovering new synergies is half the fun. But even if players focus on their favorite trio, characters can be garrisoned in airship structures to grant bonuses, making roster expansion critical for every playstyle./
Noodlecake is set to publish a new game on Google Play this week; this one is a solitaire title named Sage Solitaire.
Sage Solitaire is free and comes with Single Deck and Vegas Modes. One iap will remove ads, unlock the other modes (Double Deck, Grit and Fifteens) as well as more wallpapers, themes and decks that pair with any situation.
The core behind the game is as follows. Players are tasked with clearing all the cards from each stack. To do so, you must select poker hands from the available cards and you must use cards from at least 2 different rows in the process. You are awarded points for how rare the hands are you can make, clearing stacks as well using the special Suit card to add bonus points to you hand. Players can also trash a card if they want to remove one from the pile. Completing a hand will add a trash slot back for players to use.
Single and Double deck are just that. Players are required to clear one or two decks worth of cards. In Fifteens mode, players can make poker hands but also can cash in hands that total 15 no matter what the numbers or suit are. As long as the cards total 15.
In Vegas and Grit mode things get a little more intense. Players place a bet on their game before it starts. Then as they clear stacks, they earn a score multiplier instead of points. This multiplier needs to get above 1, else you might lose your money! Players also earn money for completing the various poker hands. Grit mode is the mecca of this mode. In Grit, you are given a stack of money and if you lose it, thatâ€™s it. No more. You never get to play Grit mode again. Do you have the guts to gamble in Grit?
Can’t wait to see this one; the actual due date is February 4th. Check out the trailer below:
