Review – Angry Birds Blast on Android

Rovio are certainly keeping the Angry Birds license alive and active in the gaming world. We saw quite a bit of saturation with the original, physics based, model and we are seeing more branching out now. The Angry Birds group has gotten around alright, from downhill racing to Bust-A-Move style puzzlers to Clickomania style ones, […]

War Commander Rogue Assault Attacks Android, Developed by Member of Command & Conquer Creators Team

When you think of real time strategy games today, you probably think of mobile games like Clash of Clans. For retrogaming fans, though, real time strategy games probably started and ended with one franchise: Command & Conquer. One of the creators of that seminal game is back with a new game called War Commander: Rogue […]

Clip Layer Improves Copy and Paste on Android

Microsoft is probably not the first name you think of when you think Android. That has not stopped them from working really hard to become synonymous with the platform. For the most part, Microsoft’s offerings have been more business oriented and squarely aimed at the corporate or self-employed professional. How many people in everyday life […]

Review – Fairway Solitaire on Android

Solitaire games are a dime a dozen on the various app stores. We have covered one or two here and there such as Microsoft Solitaire (review here). While the Microsoft release featured many variations of Solitaire, Fairway Solitaire features one: golf. You may be thinking this is going to suck, only having one variation available […]

Review – Kill Shot Bravo on Android

We don’t cover a lot of war related games here on Gravis Ludus. Mainly because there are simply so many of them that it is often hard to keep track of what is what. One that stood out to me was Kill Shot Bravo by Hothead Games. While I try a lot of these style […]

Vudu Adds Fan Focused Support Options for Android Users

Fans of movies and television shows probably already know about Vudu, the digital distribution service owned by Walmart. Available via platforms such as Android, Roku, and computers, Vudu is an entertainment lover’s dream. Boasting over 100,000 movies and television shows Vudu is definitely a leader in the field of digital distribution of this content. With […]

Review – PinOut on Android

I am a closet pinball fan.  I suck at the real thing, but digitally, I have been addicted since Midnight Magic on the Atari 2600.  That is why I found it interesting that there is basically an endless pinball game called PinOut for Android.  I knew I had to play it.  Much like other addictive […]

Review – Knight’s Tour on Android

Puzzle games are a dime a dozen on mobile platforms.  This is apparent by simply opening your favorite mobile game store – go ahead, try it.  While there is a deluge of match 3 games that hope to capture 1/1,000th of the success of Bejeweled or Candy Crush Saga, there are a few unique puzzle […]

Open World Role Playing Game The Quest Released for Android

Okay, with the advent of mobile devices and their respective stores it is obvious some genres are simply lacking.  While there are countless puzzle games, match 3 affairs and “can we stop with it already” endless runners populating iTunes and Google Play traditional games are harder to find.  Some of us honestly prefer to play […]

Review – Evil Dead – Endless Nightmare on Android

If you are a fan of classic horror movies, at least the cult ones, then you are probably aware of Evil Dead.  Recently there was a remake released in the cinema world and with that, and modern marketing techniques, there is now a game to compliment the movie.  If you are not a fan of […]

Review – Tap ‘n’ Slash Android Role Playing Game

Usually, I start reviews with a bit of the back story of the game but Tap ‘n’ Slash has no backstory.  Take this in a good way- who remembers the backstory of, say, Doom?  Who cared?  Tap ‘n’ Slash is one of those types of games that doesn’t really need a backstory as everything is […]

Review – Fit in the Hole Android Game

I have to wonder if at least some inspiration for Fit in the Hole by Ketchapp was drawn from Fox’s short lived television show, Hole in the Wall.  First, those who know me know I am not a fan of endless running games and that is essentially what Fit in the Hole is.  What is unique […]

Review – 2048 Knight Android Game

The land is over run with creatures and you must take up arms and defeat them before life as you know it is eradicated.  That is pretty much the backstory for 2048 Knight.  As you can tell from the name, this one is based on 2048, the popular number swiping game.  The difference here is […]

Stormblades Review- Android Quick Time Event Action Adventure

Remember those Quick Time Events from the God of War series?  Stormblades is basically a whole game of them.  This works quite well on mobile, touch screen, devices- much better than expected actually.  While this is not the first time we have seen this type of game, Stormblades does it with a little more interesting […]

Six! Review, Physics Puzzle Tower Destruction Game on Android

Hmm, what is this?  A puzzle game where you simply click the pieces below and they disappear causing things to fall.  I think I could get into this, that is what I thought the first few minutes I played of Six! by Gram Games.  After about half an hour of playing I was getting into […]

Alkonah Review Using GPD XD Android Device

3D adventure games on Google Play, which are not point and click affairs, are rare.  Alkonah is one such 3D adventure that gives you a world to explore to your heart’s content.  The biggest change that you will realize when playing Alkonah is there is no combat to speak of, at least none I discovered […]
