Pixel Starships Is Finally Available For Android

Pixel Starships

Folks, I’m here today to tell you a heartbreaking story that finally got a happy ending just a few days ago. You see, about a year ago when I had an iPhone, I found this game called Pixel Starships. It was a true scifi MMORPG with charming graphics and riveting battles, and it made many days at work that much more bearable. After having a ball with this game for a few weeks, my iPhone tragically broke, and I replaced it with an Android phone (since I’d been meaning to…

Grab Them By The Eyes: Burger Stand Simulator

Grab Them By The Eyes

Just yesterday, we were telling you about Terry Cavanagh’s great little roguelike game, Tiny Heist. Cavanagh’s games are all so great, though, that they deserve much more than one article about them. Even the games he considers to be throwaways can be entertaining for an entire afternoon, if not more. That’s why I’m here to tell you about his burger stand simulation, Grab Them By The Eyes. Grab Them By The Eyes is a beautifully simple game. You play a burger stand owner who has presumably held a monopoly over…

Tiny Heist: Bite-Sized Roguelike Action

Tiny Heist

If you’ve been reading My Dpad for a while (or if you follow our Steam Curation page at Great Medium-Spec Games), you know that we love Terry Cavanagh games more than anything. Most people know about Super Hexagon and VVVVVV, but Terry Cavanagh has also made all sorts of other games that are available for free at his website. I’m here today to tell you about one of my favorite games of his, Tiny Heist. Tiny Heist is a very small roguelike game with retro graphics that absolutely any computer…

West of Loathing Update: Second Impressions

West of Loathing

Well, it’s been less than a week since Asymmetric Publications absolutely knocked it out of the park with West of Loathing, but I’m already coming at you for my second impressions. I’m doing this for a reason, though, and that reason is that they’ve already released their first patch for the game. This is a great sign on its own, as it shows that West of Loathing is far from a cash grab and it’s developers actually want to provide the best possible experience to West of Loathing players. Scanning…

Trivia Crack Kingdoms and Trivia Crack Heroes

Trivia Crack Heroes Logo

If you love (or have ever loved) Trivia Crack, you know how hard it can be to find another mobile game that’s as fun and addicting. Maybe you’ve tried other trivia games and apps like Jeopardy and QuizUp, but you still haven’t been able to recapture that Trivia Crack magic. Well, lucky for you, Trivia Crack is just the first game in the franchise released by Etermax, and there are already two spinoffs in the series: Trivia Crack Kingdoms and Trivia Crack Heroes. If you loved Trivia Crack, you have…

West of Loathing: The Western RPG Of The Year

Folks, I’m here today to give you a quick review of West of Loathing (WoL), the brand-spanking-new single-player Western RPG from Asymmetric Publications. This is the company that is, of course, best known for the epic stick-figure browser MMO Kingdom of Loathing (KoL). Unlike KoL, WoL is single-player, and not an MMO. It is also a game you have to download rather than play in your browser. It’s set in the Wild West around 1890, as opposed to a more traditional fantasy setting. While the game looks the same as…

Hitman Sniper: Heart-Pounding Mobile Action

Hitman Sniper

If you’re even vaguely aware of stealth games, shooters, or even video games in general, you probably know of the Hitman series. For almost 20 years, Hitman has borderline dominated the stealth (some would say stealth-lite) genre, with only a few real competitors. Hitman introduced itself to smartphones not by shrinking one of their games down to mobile size, but by reimagining the series as a board game in the form of Hitman GO. Hitman’s second mobile offering, Hitman Sniper, also succeeds by acknowledging its limitations. Sure, it came out…

Adventure Xpress: A Fun Match-3 RPG

Adventure Xpress

If you like Adult Swim shows, you probably also like Adult Swim games. From Robot Unicorn Attack and Five Minutes to Kill Yourself to Amateur Surgeon and Pocket Mortys, Adult Swim has been bringing the world great, quirky games for years. For people who like their games with a certain sense of humor without sacrificing quality gameplay, it really can’t get much better than Adult Swim games, especially when it comes to smartphone and mobile gaming. Adventure Xpress is no exception to this. At its core, Adventure Xpress is a…

N.O.V.A. Legacy: FPS Action In A Small Download

N.O.V.A. Legacy

A few years back, when smartphone gaming was still a fairly fledgling field, I had to move from one house to another. Moving is a tough time for gaming, since you usually don’t have your TV and your console and all your games and accessories in one place, and if you do, you probably don’t have it all set up. Lucky for me, I found a Halo ripoff for smartphones called N.O.V.A.: Near Vanguard Orbit Alliance, which I could play on the couch during any downtime I could find. As…

Trailer Park Boys: Greasy Money

Trailer Park Boys

If you love Trailer Park Boys, I got just the game for you. Trailer Park Boys: Greasy Money is an excellent example of a great licensed game, and is definitely one of the best licensed mobile games I’ve run across. All of your favorite characters, schemes, and storylines are in this game, making it feel like you’re rewatching the whole series yet again. But what do you do? At its core, Trailer Park Boys: Greasy Money is another clicker game. Think about this, though: Trailer Park Boys, as a show,…
