Roboto lands on iOS/Android for $2.99, is our new favorite Android platformer

On Thursday morning, Fenix Fire Entertainment released a game called Roboto for Android and iOS devices. We’ve been playing the game for the past few weeks and even through a few early builds. The idea is simple: you’re a robot fighting across 30 different levels on your rocket board in attempt to save ‘robogirl.’ The graphics are beautiful, the soundtrack is solid and the gameplay is addictive, if just a hair repetitive at times. There are dozens of exciting iOS platformer games but Roboto sticks out as one of the best currently available for Android gamers. The title is loaded with acrobatic puzzles, five different weapons, power ups and armor upgrades, and OpenFeint/Game Center support. Roboto currently priced at just $2.99 until August 8th, after which it will jump to $4.99, so be sure to download it from the Android Market or iTunes App Store now. Read on for a link to the game from both stores. More →

Angry Birds Rio for Android now available [video]

Angry Birds Rio, the latest free game in the Angry Birds franchise from Rovio, is now available from the Android Market. The game features two episodes — a total of 60 different levels – complete with some gameplay twists built around Rio the movie. Rovio has added new achievements, as well as “hidden fruits” that you’ll discover as you play.  Instead of attacking pigs, as usual, your goal is to liberate imprisoned birds by knocking them out of their respective cages. We played through the first few levels of episode 1 and are digging it so far; it has the same addictive gameplay we’ve come to expect from Angry Birds. The best part? Rovio will add episodic updates each month through November. Hit the jump for a gameplay trailer. More →
