Angry Birds Go (karting) - Team Rovio announced recently the Angry Birds will be making an arcade racing debut in the form of Angry Birds Go on December 11th. Think Mario Kart with a little more dynamism, featuring the birds and the piggies and a whole lot of action. We have a couple of concerns about the title, however. Namely the fact that Angry Birds Go was, according to Rovio, "...built from the ground up as a free-to-play title". There's also a focus on real-world toy integration via Telepods, allowing you to purchase toys and "scan" them into the game to unlock additional content. Translation: spend money. Hopefully the team won't botch the IAPs and the birds will make a gentle transition to the world of racing.
Trouserheart on Android - Weeks after its iOS launch, 10tons has pushed the action RPG game Trouserheart onto Android devices via the Amazon Appstore! Waking up from a peaceful nap, King Trouserheart finds his trousers have been stolen. Where can they be? Venture out across the kingdoms, fighting blockolds, tentacles, derp kinghts, jelly cubes and other peculiar adversaries to find and reclaim the kidnapped pants. As you defeat foes, collect money and use it to upgrade your weapon, armor, shield and wallet in this hack'n'slash RPG adventure geared toward the casual player as well as the seasoned gamer.
Indie iPhone bundle - Mobile gamers want bundles, too! Following the indie bundling craze, Thumb Arcade has launched a bundle containing ten iPhone/iPad games for $5. Among the titles available are Forever Lost: Episode 1 and IncrediBlox, two games that are worth the asking price alone, which is the equivalent of an 80% discount, in case you were wondering. That's pretty hard to argue with if you like games and fun and stuff. A portion of the proceeds even goes to charity! Grab it before October 31st.
