Baghdad was just the beginning. The machines have once again invaded Korea in 11 bit studios’ Anomaly Korea game. This is just like any defense game, but you are placed on the attacking force. You must strategically plan your route and fight against the machines, waiting along your course. Your troops alone cannot fight against the heavy fire of the alien force.

What’s even best is that the game is on sale. You can get the Anomaly Korea game for only US$2.83.

Oh no! The puddings are being eaten. It’s time for the little puddings to combine and create monsters with ZeptoLab’s Pudding Monsters HD game. Your primary goal in this game is to combine all puddings on the table. You can do that by sliding one pudding into another. But, you have to be careful because you might slide off the table. You can use objects on the tablet to help you reach the other puddings. For more fun, try obtaining all stars in each round. Slide and form pudding monsters with Pudding Monsters HD for US$1.00.

WISTONE Entertainment puts you at the head of a war in War 2 Victory. Just like any war, before you can go out to the front lines, you’ll need to prepare your resources. Start by building houses to attract people into moving into your city, and then start building factories to produce your resources. Once you have enough people, turn them into factory workers and soldiers. Finish missions to earn yourself more resources that you can use to build your army, strengthen it, and gain an advantage over your enemy.

Halloween may have come and gone but no one likes pests in the garden. Stop those pesky ducks from stealing your pumpkins in Duck vs Pumpkin by Amazing Games. You need to protect three of your precious pumpkins from waves of ducks. Show them who’s boss by shooting them with your shotgun. Be careful, because you might run out of bullets. Reload quickly or else the ducks will carry your prized pumpkins away. Ducks vs Pumpkin is free to download from the Google Play Store but you will see ads in the lower left corner of the screen.
