Now Playing History is an App Every Pixel 2 Owner Needs

thumbnail

Now Playing is a feature exclusive to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. With it, your phone can recognize music that is playing in the background, saving you from downloading Shazam or embarrassingly asking the barista at your local Starbucks whose smooth jazz rendition of Ode to Billie Joe you’re listening to. Until now, there has never been a place to showcase all of the music that has been recognized by Now Playing. Thanks to the release Now Playing History, available right now on Google ...

Evade ghosts and evil pumpkins in Hallows’ Eve, a retro endless runner set in Brookyn

thumbnail

Ghosts, vampires, and werewolves are all scary in their own way, but if you want a real scare just try walking around old school New York. That’s what you have to do in Hallows’ Eve, a new mobile endless-runner that transports you to a terrifying pre-gentrification Brooklyn and tasks you with surviving a night of trick or treating while avoiding ghosts and evil pumpkins.

Realist adventure game Night in the Woods is coming to mobile

thumbnail

Okay, so It’s a bit of a stretch to call Night in the Woods a ‘realist’ adventure game. Yes, it follows the travails of a college drop-out returning to her economically depressed home town and navigating the hazardous psychosocial currents she finds there, but it’s also populated entirely by animals. It’s like a cross between Animal Crossing and Ghost World. Or just Bojack Horseman. Night in the Woods is highly acclaimed, thanks to its excellent visual design, storytelling, and puzzles. And it’s coming to mobile. ANNOUNCING:Night In The WoodsMobile2018 pic.twitter.com/6hTjGLVTWD — Night In ...
