Papercraft games anyone? Lately, there have been more games using this art style and I love it. They generally produce unique characters, as well as rare game play mechanics. The latest title to use this style of artwork, is coming from game design studio Arkadium Games. Arkadium Games has been in business since 2001. The company was started by Jessica Rovello and Kenny Rosenblatt. The company now has multiple offices from New York to Crimea. They have created, what appears to be, a gem of a game, called Twisty Hollow. It will be arriving for Android devices soon.
Back in November 2012 Valorware released an open-world RPG called 9th Dawn that has done pretty well for itself. Apparently it did well enough to warrant a sequel and that is exact what is heading our way soon. Officially it will be called 9th Dawn II and it will incorporate the same the original one had in regards to a more modern design for combat combined with classic RPG style of gameplay.
One game that has always been fun to play is the endless runner called Canabalt where you run across roofs of buildings for as long as possible without dying. Djinnworks has released their own idea of a rooftop running game called Stickman Roof Runner.
Every now and then we hear about a game coming out for mobile devices that we truly can get excited about. It feels like it could be a game changer. We see the graphics, get a brief synopsis of the storyline and we immediately get hooked in anticipation. Such is the case with Vivid Games new project Godfire: Rise of Prometheus.
The number of really good titles continues to increase in the Play Store. The latest to arrive is a 2D Point and Click adventure title from developer Studio Fizbin out of Germany, entitled The Inner World. Headup Games their publisher let us know that the award winning game is now available for Android. It was released earlier this year on IOS. It is also available for PC and Mac. The game won the Game of the Year award at the German Computer Games Award 2014 and The Best Family Game award at the German’s Developers Association in 2013. The game environment is extremely colorful and completely hand drawn, with heavy doses of humor and good puzzles to solve.
Today is turning out to be one of those days where there is just so many good games to play that it is almost hard to keep track of. SNK Playmore has also released a new game today and it is another King of Fighters title. This particular one is King of Fighters 2012(F). So what does the (F) stand for? Our guess is 'Free' because that's how much the game costs.
Square Enix is getting in on the action today in regards to the ridiculous amount of great games being released onto Android. Is it a new Final Fantasy game? No. But it is a new Dragon Quest game. Actually it is Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation to be exact which is apparently one of the most popular installments in the series from back in the day according to Square Enix.
Harebrained Schemes has announced that they will be releasing a sequel to their Shadowrun Returns game next week called Shadowrun Dragonfall.

Way back in March of 2013 Wargaming.net announced that they would be bringing their tank combat franchise to Android. It seemed as though development was doing good because almost a year later in March 2014, World of Tanks Blitz went into a closed beta testing phase. After that though things went a bit quiet about the release of this game... a little too quiet.
Rovio has announced today that the company will only be laying off 110 employees instead of the 130 tht they had originally announced. While some may find this a bit surprising, considering how successful Rovio has been for their first 5-6 years. Some would say the company is still pretty successful and in a lot of ways it is.
