Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles for Android

Lego Star Wars is getting a free-to-play mobile spin-off, called "Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles." It's due on iOS on May 4, also known in nerd circles as "Star Wars Day," and will follow on Android sometime this summer. It lets players align with the Light or Dark Side of the Force, take part in lightsaber duels, and explore dungeons for studs. Those parts can then be used to build soldiers and vehicles.

Polygon reports that the game will be playable on the official site, and will use the Lego ID system to let you switch between the mobile and browser versions.

The mobile version will launch with eight main missions and three bonus stages, with another seven missions and two bonus stages to be released later this summer. Each content drop will include 20 achievements, and the bonus missions will include a quick-play mode that pits you against a horde of enemies.

Download Dark Avenger APK

Gamevil and Boolean Games’s highly anticipated RPG Dark Avenger has been officially released and is now available for Android. This Diablo-esque dungeon crawler cast players as one of three legendary hero types who must defeat a host of demons and undead who have descended upon the lands of the living. Bashing skeletons, looting treasure chests, and slaying giant monsters are all just another day in Dark Avenger.

Its not all the same with Dark Avenger though, as the hack ‘n slash title has a few tricks up its sleeve. In a mobile twist on a classic rpg staple, dungeons are now completely endless in addition to being procedurally generated, which is sure to delight elite dungeon masters. An included multiplayer mode allows players to take their heroes online in PvP competition for treasure and coin.

Download Carmageddon APK

That blood-spattered recurring nightmare you had as a kid may have been formed by playing too much Carmageddon. The 1997 game has been resurrected for mobile devices after earning over $400,000 on Kickstarter from the company’s founding studio, Stainless Games.

All the carnage, swearing and pedestrian-maiming mayhem is intact here, though the on-screen controls are a bit too finicky for my liking. The game doesn’t stray too hard from the original premise, but there are new goals and plenty of updated HD graphics including “buckets o’ gibs” that shine on HD screens.

I noticed a bit of frame dropping on the HTC One, but for the most part performance stayed solid; the little human sprites are not detailed, but things can get hectic onscreen when there are multiple cars vying for a piece of you.

The game’s economy revolves around Profit, a generic currency that can be used to repair your car and buy new items or unlock vehicles. Repairing your car, which you will inevitably repeat throughout the match, is easy — one tap on the top right corner — but in later levels it costs more and Profit is less freely available.

Carmageddon is free for a day to promote its launch, but is (and will continue to be) available for $1.99 on Android and $3.99 on iOS.
