Inertia: Escape Velocity is a new game from Red Fly Studio, that's due to hit the Android Market on 1st December 2011. It's a physics based platformer, that (as you can see from the screenshots) looks stunning.
Set in space, players have to manipulate gravity in order to achieve your objective, namely salvaging space debris. The idea is to jump, glide, fly, and float your way around levels, collecting the junk in the quickest time possible.
The game features:
Physics-based platformer: employ a unique anti-gravity element to float, glide, and bounce around deep space environments to collect space junk for ship repair and to unlock new planets.
Console gameplay on mobile devices: with high-quality graphics, intense and challenging levels, and a unique gameplay mechanic, core gamers will appreciate a console gaming experience on a portable platform.
Control settings: the game uses on-screen controls for movement, jumping, and gravity control, but players can also opt to use challenging “tilt” controls that turn the entire device into the controller.
Inferno levels: for even more of a challenge, players can try their hand at these high-difficulty versions of each level.
It looks as though there will be two versions of the game available: a standard version for $1.99, and an HD version for $2.99. We'll be sure to keep a close eye on this title, so keep checking back for further details of the game's release. If you can't wait that long, check out the game's website.

Demolicious is a physics-based puzzle game, that reminds me a little bit of Boom Blox. I like the cell-shaded graphics, and it looks full of character (as well as a lot of fun!).
Featuring intuitive touch-screen controls, Demolicious challenges you to carefully aim and fire powerful cannons to destroy cargo crates while solving challenging physics puzzles. Test your skills in over 60 unique destruction arenas and mini-games. Destroy all crates in the arena in any way imaginable in order to win. Use the full 3D environment to solve puzzles and destroy explosive crates to do heavy damage. Switch between cannons and viewpoints at any time in order to destroy with tactical precision from multiple firing angles. Create havoc with ricochets, explosions, and domino effects! Enjoy the spectacular fireworks as a barrage of instant replays celebrates your success or failure in all its’ destructive glory!
You can't go far wrong with blowing stuff up, and setting off huge chain reactions, so this game should be one to look out for. The game is set to be released soon, but if you want to find out more in the mean time, be sure to visit the official site.

It's FPS season for consoles, and Gameloft isn't going to let the big boys have all the fun. They have released a new trailer for Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation, which is due to be released in the very near future. Anyone interested in getting this?

We were made aware of a game called The Silent Age today. It's a point and click adventure, but it's the look of the game that's grabbed our attention. It's very stylish, and you can see from the developers blog that they're trying to create a unique feel to the game.
The plot of the game is also fairly intriguing:
The game is set to be released on Android early next year, and we're certainly going to be looking out for it.
The adventure takes you back and forth between present day 1971 and an unsettling future in 2011. In the game you dive into the role of an average Joe who fittingly goes by the name of “Joe Average”. One day while he’s doing his job cleaning an office building he finds a mysterious dying man who seemed to come out of no-where. This person explains Joe that something is about to go wrong which will have catastrophic influences in the future. Before he dies he hands Joe a portable time travel device and tells Joe that the fate of humanity lies in his hands!

Gameloft have released some details about an upcoming game for Android, called "Gangstar Rio: City of Saints".
It's the next game in a series I've never heard of, but that probably doesn't mean much. I'm not exactly up to scratch with what all the youths are playing these days.
It looks impressive, however, if a little GTA-like. Here's a video of the game in action:

Last week we told you about a new game from Game Insight called Crime Story, which will soon be released onto the Android Market. We’ve had a chance to play on a preview version of the game, and we thought we’d share our thoughts.
The first thing that strikes you about the game is its graphics; for a mobile game they are mightily impressive, and the detailed game environment is a pleasure to explore. The game is comprised of different areas, including docks, residential, and urban. Each has various buildings to enter and explore, and game’s attention to detail is exceptional. Being able to zoom in and out of the action is welcome, and also helps reiterate the scale of the game.
The controls of Crime Story are fairly straightforward, and well-suited to a touchscreen device. The game is easily likened to the point-and-click genre, and movement around the game’s environment and interaction with other characters, is done by tapping the area of object with your finger. This will sometimes bring up an onscreen menu, giving you a choice of actions.
As the title of the game suggests, Crime Story’s tale revolves around the criminal underworld. Your character has come to America in search of their lost brother. In order to find him, you must join a variety of gangs, and work you way to the top by performing tasks, such as racketeering and vandalism. Your influence is determined by your gang affiliation, and getting a gang insignia tattooed on your arm increases your intimidation.
There is a large social element to Crime Story, and you can share your progress through the game via Twitter and Facebook. The game’s currency is gold coins, which are used to buy energy, and can be exchanged for cash. Cash can then be used to buy new weapons and customise your character. It’s anticipated that there will probably be a form of in-app purchasing to make assist in collecting the coins, but this will be confirmed at a later date.
Although the preview version was limited to the early missions, we’ve enjoyed our time with Crime Story so far. There are a few wrinkles to be ironed out, but it’s done enough to grab our attention. So far, the game is only recommended to be played on a handful of devices, which is a bit of a shame, but this may be widened by the time of full release. If you’re interested in knowing more about the game, Overjoid will be sure to keep you updated.
