Mr Flap is a Flappy Bird homage that’s… quite good

We spent a few happy minutes blissfully playing Mr Flap last night, a game that takes the Flappy Bird mechanic and flips it… folds it… bends it… into a circle. It’s circular Flappy Bird, with players flapping at moving gates that expand to change position as your tiny bird “laps” the course. That’s all you [...]

Another classic from yesteryear has popped up on Google Play, with our favourite retro porters DotEmu sticking up R-Type II yesterday.

Ridge Racer Slipstream coming to Android this month

Publisher Namco Bandai has sent us the below image, which comes from new mobile racing title Ridge Racer: Slipstream. Despite never being as good as Daytona USA or Sega Rally, Ridge Racer’s a huge “proper console” franchise, so its appearance on Android and iOS is a pretty big deal.

Rovio gets in on the Candy Crush cloning with Juice Cubes

Angry Birds developer Rovio and its Rovio Stars offshoot has released a new free game on Google Play, which it calls Juice Cubes.
