Here at android headlines, we love games. We love games so much we feel the need to talk about them weekly with you guys. With all the game news that pops up we feel we need to keep you guys in the loop, because we know you love games too.
Snoop Dogg Comes To Android In “Way Of The Dogg”
I know we never got the T-Pain app. Not the worst thing to happen to the android ecosystem, although it’s hard to not want something that makes you sound like a harmonious robot. Instead we have something better, or should I say weirder perhaps. A Snoop Dogg game. “Way of The Dogg” is more than likely just a way for Snoop to get some more publicity, but who knows, maybe he just really likes games and wanted to be featured in one. Way of The Dogg will be a rhythm based action game where you will have to input strings of combos to make snoop fight against his opponents. Did I mention Bruce Lee style? Yeah, makes me think of Adult Swim Cartoon Black Dynamite too.
Disney And Imangi Studios Team Up For Temple Run OZ
With the Success of their previous franchise mashup, Temple Run Brave and Imangi’s newest, Temple Run 2, who didn’t see something like this coming? When you think about it, OZ is actually kind of a perfect set up for this type of game. Hes in a balloon that’s flying uncontrollably on his way to the land of OZ. On the way there he’ll cross all kinds of gold coins and power ups and inevitably run through an endless loop of grabbing all this loot till the end of time. Maybe this should have been the plot of the movie. I kid I kid. The based off Disney’s “Oz The Great and Powerful” will have you playing as the wizard himself, (naturally) and all the same elements are here accept for one new addition. Brief moments of bliss will befall upon you while you float in the Wizards balloon tilting and picking up coins before the mayhem continues. We all know it’ll be a hit. Who can admit they’ll try it out?
God Of Blades Brings Epic Sword Swinging Action To Android
If you said you wanted a mix of an endless runner, Mortal Kombat style graphics and sidescrolling visuals, and epic sword fighting, well then you’d have God Of Blades. More sword fighting, club swinging, gesture based combat then any mere mortal can handle in anything longer than a one hour session is here to make remember just how much you missed pulp fantasy. Riddled with lore, action and plenty of well… swords, God Of Blades is an endless sidescrolling runner with gesture combat. You play an undead king who runs across the land to save the world from great evil. The game actually looks kind of bad ass and for $0.99 White Whale Games did a solid here. Would you guys try this out?
Cow Crusher For Android Aims To Make Us Remember That Beef Is King
One can’t help but notice that Cow Crusher is taking a simple stab at the slew of Horse meat debacles running rampant in the UK over the last few weeks. In Cow Crusher you basically have to make sure that your giant burger making machine stamps down on cows but dodges Horses or any other animal of any kind. The game is simple enough, and might serve the purpose of time waster for a brief 30 minute wait at the DMV. If you were asking yourself what do I do in Cow Crusher? You crush cows into beef based foods. Burgers, steaks, meatloaf, you name it. Just make sure your food only contains beef. Can anyone see themselves playing this?
Asphalt 7 Heat Gets Update And Brings New Supercars And Tracks
Asphalt fans out there are revving up their engines as they prepare for the newest update from Gameloft that came to Asphalt 7 Heat. Bringing with it new supercars and new racetracks, the update weighs in at an obscenely large 1.5gb so make sure you clear some space or even have the proper amount available, and if at all possible do this on a wifi connection. Although some people will be able to pull this off over 4g or LTE. I have downloaded larger games on more than one occasion at my work downtown. The update includes 2 new lottery’s , two new events ( Lamborghini and Tuatara) and limited time cups and events. If you already own this game than rush over to the play store under your apps list and hit the update button, if you’re on 4.1 + and have had bugs or issues, the update should fix that too. Happy racing!

Nvidia Shows Off Riptide GP 2 In The Newest Android Thursday Video
If you have been following Nvidia’s Project Shield at all you may already know that they do a couple sets of weekly videos to show off some cool stuff about their new game gadget hitting market this year. During their newest “Android Thursdays” video Nvidia shows off the awesomeness of Riptide GP 2 and how well it plays on Project Shield. Riptide GP 2 will of course come with Tegra 4 specific enhancements and rightfully so if, since the last game from vector unit was a tegra game to start. The Tegra 4 enhancements will include HDR lighting and boosted reflection shaders, and it wouldn’t be as awesome if didn’t also come with enhanced water and particle effects, so it does. Riptide GP 2 will also boast an all new spectator mode and a very welcomed controller support feature ( who saw this coming… hmmmm) which should surprise no one since its basically being demoed on a giant controller with a screen. As excited as we are here for Project Shield, this just brings the excitement to a whole new level.
Bladeslinger Finally Hits Android; Shoot, Slash, And Combo Punch The Corrupted
The Long, long, long awaited title from Luma Arcade and Publisher Kerosene Games “Bladeslinger” has finally landed on the google play store. Dropping on iOS earlier this year, Bladeslinger has gathered a massive following. We first heard about this game well over a year ago and I was lucky enough to meet these guys at I/O2012 to play a brief preview of what was to come. Here it is almost a year later and I finally have the game on my own Nexus 7 tablet. Intuitive gesture based controls, mixed with a killer story and bad ass combat system make Bladeslinger just the game many people have been waiting for. You play as William Gaston, who has returned home to Hammer’s Peak to find that not all is right. The game has unparalleled graphics and some sweet effects like depth of field. While the game is not Tegra 3 exclusive like it was originally thought to be, the graphics settings should only be ramped up if you run a high end device as it may slow the gameplay , and you wouldn’t want to ruin such an awesome experience. Use bad ass combat power cards to give you an edge, and upgrade your gunblade attacks and bullets to pack a major punch against the corrupted. The game is $2.99 and comes with IPA’s but they are not mandatory. Bladeslinger comes with two modes so far, Story and Arena. Once you complete the second chapter in story mode, Arena should unlock and this will allow you to gain some gold and spirit gems to aid you in your upgrade pursuits. Overall, the game is a flurry of action and the best game on Android to date.
