2K Games surpised us a couple of week ago when they decided to quietly release NBA 2K13 onto Android. Now they have gone a step further and have quietly released a companion application for NBA 2K13 called MyNBA2K. This companion app isn't really for the Android version of the game but instead extends your NBA 2K13 experience on Xbox 360, PS3 and the Wii U. In fact it can connect back to the game regardless of what console you're playing it on.

We get a lot of unique retro-style RPG titles on Android and mobile in general. While the storylines are all different, most of the gameplay mechanics are pretty similar regardless if the RPG you're playing is a turn-based one or an Action-RPG title. So when we first saw a new retro RPG on Google Play called Knights of Pen & Paper, we thought that this would be a cool game.
A rather big company named Marvel released a TCG title yesterday called Marvel War of Heroes, but if that isn't your type of thing then perhaps cats are instead. They are not normal cats though, they are Samurai Cats. Released onto the Mobage social gaming platform, Samurai Cats is as it sounds, a TCG title filled with cats wielding swords and attacking enemies, in TCG gaming format of course. However, you can for groups and formations with your cards, almost like a strategy board game.

This goes for both of the Dungeon Defenders games.
AMA Ltd has released a new game onto the Google Play store today sporting the 'Tycoon' name on it. While this may or may not have any affiliation with the plethora of Tycoon titles out there in the video gaming world, Animal Park Tycoon looks to be a bit more of a casual sim game where you will be building the best zoo you can possibly build.
