Thimbleweed Park is out on Android, and it’s MUCH cheaper than PC or console

thumbnail

Last week we announced that Thimbleweed Park, the highly anticipated mobile port of Ron Gilbert’s acclaimed LucasArts-esque retro point-and-click adventure game, would be arriving one week late, on October 10th. Well guess what. It’s October 10th. We’ve waited a whole week, and is Thimbleweed Park anywhere to be seen? Yes, it’s right here. While the Android version of Thimbleweed Park might seem a bit steep at £8.99, it’s worth bearing in mind that the PC version is currently £14.99. And PC gamers can’t even play the game on ...

Dark and twitchy casual game The Firm is FREE on Android

thumbnail

The Firm should NEVER be free. A simulation of life behind the desk of a Wall Street trading firm, it’s a game about cold hard cash. Buy low. Sell high. Give away for free? Screw you, inchworms! Okay, so The Firm’s financial services theme has no relation to its probability of being given away on Google Play, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t leap on this opportunity to acquire it gratis. In case you’ve never heard of it before, The Firm is a sort of twitchy pixelart satire ...

Android Wear Will Receive Incremental Updates via Google Play Between OTA Updates

thumbnail

Announced via Google+ this week, the only place Android Wear news seems to be alive and well, the wearable platform from Google will receive incremental updates via official Android Wear app updates on Google Play, instead of all things being pushed through in an OTA. Think of this like your Android phone. Not too long ago, Google broke down the OS and pushed apps (launchers, dialer, messages, etc.) to Google Play, allowing for more timely updates to take place. Now, folks can have updated features via ...

New Android Wear 2.0 features can now be delivered through the Play Store, no OTA required

thumbnail

Android Wear is entering a potentially critical time. Wear 2.0 hasn't been received nearly as well as might have been expected, with many observers understandably worrying for its future. Watches were conspicuously absent from Google's big hardware event last week, and the Google Store site refresh has removed all non-Google products, including LG's recently released Android Wear watches. Wear fans could use some more good news to add to the recent announcement of the Oreo beta program for the LG Watch Sport, and it looks as ...

DEAL: Google Home is $20 Off Everywhere

thumbnail

Google Home is currently discounted almost everywhere by $20. This isn’t the ultimate Google Home deal by any means, but it’s still a good one. If you are all of a sudden in the market for a Google Home, now is a good time to jump on it. We’re seeing the deal at Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and the Google Store. I’d assume you can find it everywhere else this device is sold, though. I probably don’t need to remind you, but Google Home Mini is ...

DEAL: Save $30 on an Amazon Echo Show, Down to $199

thumbnail

For anyone who has been patiently waiting on Amazon to discount the Echo Show, now is your time. Usually listed at $229.99, you can find a Black or White model for just $199.99 with Amazon Prime. The Amazon Echo Show is the same Echo experience you’d expect, with its learnable skills for doing all sorts of things, but the Show comes with a 7″ touchscreen that allows you to really interact with the information Alexa provides to you. You can view weather forecasts, play videos, use ...

Anticipated strategy-RPG Lionheart: Dark Moon is out now

thumbnail

2014’s Lionheart Tactics was a real treat – a free-to-play strategy RPG on mobile that could hold its own against console genre giants like Final Fantasy and Disgaea. And now we’ve got follow-up. Lionheart: Dark Moon is a story-driven strategy RPG in which you have to drive away the Darkness by destroying the Shards of Whisper. The Darkness sounds pretty menacing, but we’re pretty sure most people could handle a shard of whisper. In any case, along the way you’ll build and level up an army of heroes ...
