Rising Empires, available for Android through the Google Play Store and the Amazon Appstore, is an incredibly in-depth turn based strategy title that feels like it was born on a SNES, which is very much a compliment.

It always amazes me, how developers are constantly pushing the envelope in regards to what the iPad can do.

Well, […]

Imagine Space Invaders but high-tech and this is what this game is like. The gameplay is so simple; all you have to do is tilt your device left and right to shoot the enemies with the Aquator. The Aquator shoots on its own so you don’t have to worry about tapping the screen. There is […]

MonsterUp Adventures is the latest in a long line of Doodle Jump clones to hit Android, which would usually be a bad thing; after all, how many clones do we really need? However, MonsterUp Adventures manages to add enough style and substance to make this a compelling alternative to the many other games like this […]

Guess The Words for Android, available on the Google Play store, is a decent free game that provides something to really test the old grey matter. The game is one of the best presented of its kind I have yet played on Android, and the brilliant method of using the online leaderboards is to be […]

Bubble Pop Android

Bubble Pop Arena for Android, available via Google Play, is a bubble popping game that is similar in some ways to Nnooo’s game Pop! which was popular on both WiiWare and iOS.

Layerizer is probably the easiest to use photo editing app that we have ever had here at The Smartphone App Review, but don’t let that fact fool you into thinking that it is short on features. Quite the opposite, actually, as Layerizer is pretty powerful and has a multitude of effects and features that the […]
