World of Goo is the multi-award winning, beautifully designed, physics-based puzzler that has recently found its way to the Android Market after massive success on just about every other platform.

I became aware of this launch when nearly all the Android news sources began screaming about it from the rooftops. Intrigued, I was keen to see if the hype was entirely justified. So, is it worth all that saturation? Read on…

Great Little War Game is well, just that. A relatively new title for Android, it blends the immersive strategic gameplay of Command & Conquer with the abject humour and silliness of Worms. It contains beautifully rich 3D graphics, superb sound, at least 30 different missions and three gameplay modes. What more could you want? If you like games slick with humour and explosions, you will want to read on!

Mook The Comic (in 3D) is a quirky comic strip featuring an oddball alien named Mook, and his friends CLiK and Blog. The most noticeable boast from this app is that it features the ability to view the stories in either 2D or 3D, (the latter by the use of 3D glasses). The idea behind the app is that the developer/writer will produce three new strips every three weeks, each available via updates. But is Mook any good? And are Android devices the best platforms for reading comics? Read on to find out more… (more…)

Flick Golf is an entertaining bonanza of golf that places more emphasis on fun and playability than it does on being an authentic simulation. This is certainly no comprehensively accurate Tiger Woods title, and you won’t be staring at your device trying to determine whether the rugged St Andrews par three requires a 4-iron or a sand wedge.

No, Flick Golf is all about hitting a hole-in-one, first time. In the Caribbean. From a yacht. If that sounds like your cup of tea… read on. (more…)

We’ve all seen the futuristic sci-fic films that feature cool headsets or bionic eyes that enable someone to see live information around them. Perhaps the best known examples include Terminator, Robocop and Iron Man, who each have the ability to identify and analyse the environment around them, like the Terminator’s ability to identify that one particular punk’s garments would fit him perfectly – “Your clothes… give them to me, now”.

Augmented Reality apps have been available on the Android Market for some time, and I believe they represent one of the best things about smart phones; the ability to overlay the view through your camera with useful and fun information was one of the things that initially wowed me enough to buy my first Android. Now, there are some pitfalls in trying out AR apps. Some – let me tell you – are pretty awful. I’ve weeded these out, and below are what I consider the best currently available on the Android Market.

So, read on for a round-up of great AR apps and let your Android show you what it can do! It’s like the future… only ‘now’.

Ah, the ripple of the net, muddy knees, brutal tackles, managers who only wore tracksuits, positions like ‘inside-left’ and ‘wing-half’, the League Cup was called the ‘Milk Cup’ and Match of the Day highlights were carefully recreated down the park the day after. We’re talking deep-rooted 70s and 80s British nostalgia in rolled down socks and a fistful of Panini stickers. If all this means anything to you, Flick Kick Football is like a delicious shot of yesterday’s best-bits. If however, you’re feeling suddenly alienated and scratching your head at these obscure and nonsensical British idioms, you must allow me to explain. Either way, you really should read on…
