So apparently, it’s the hit fighting game Tekken’s 20th Anniversary. Doesn’t really seem that long, does it? I still remember when I first saw it in arcades, and thought it was just a fancier, prettier Virtua Fighter. Anyway, so how do you suppose Bandai Namco Games is celebrating this momentous event? Are they going to release a new Tekken game, or maybe a collection of old classic ones? Nope, they’re just combining Tekken characters with…Galaga?!? Galaga: Tekken 20th Anniversary Edition is a downloadable game for iOS, Android, and Google Play, and best of all, it’s free! So how exactly does this game work? Oh, you’ll definitely want to read on to find out!
Tony Stark has just created a super powerful robot computer named Ultron, but it goes haywire and turns evil so now it’s up to Iron Man and the rest of the Avengers to stop him!

A medieval kingdom is having a festival with a great big cake. But when the greedy Krinkles catch a whiff of the cake, they want it all for themselves.

With tablets serving up books of all sorts, it was only a matter of time before choose-your-own adventures started popping up. The field has now become quite crowded and fans can purchase titles that span the gamut of “pure” classic written fiction up to titles that are half reading and half strategic combat. Narborion Saga falls squarely in the latter camp. A rich backstory with plenty of narrative to go around, paired with a bit of role-play stats and turn-based tactical grid combat encounters.
Choo Parr is a free-to-play mobile game for iOS and Android devices (reviewed on iPad here). In the game you play as a flying dragon, hovering above the skies of random locations like a castle, Wild West town, arctic iceberg, beach, and more. Your job is to collect equally random objects falling from the sky for points. But watch out for dangerous items cascading to the ground like bombs, grenades, and swords. Get hit twice by one of those and it’s Game Over!
