Defense Zone 2 HD - exhilarating Tower Defense game with excellent graphics, sound & strategy!
Defense Zone 2 HD is a blisteringly rendered and action-stuffed tower defense game for Android. While the game system essentially consists of a solid tower-defense model; strategically place towers, with loads of maps, increasingly- tough enemies, three levels of difficulty, tower upgrades and even air strikes, for me it was all about playing such a game with startlingly detailed graphics.

Snapseed is the popular new photo editing app from Nik Software Inc. The application is quite fashionable at the moment for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it was hugely popular on iOS and, if the initial popularity of Instagram and Temple Run are anything to go by, Android users like to snap up apps that have also been popular on Apple’s ecosystem. Secondly, Snapseed was recently purchased by Google and this app was soon released. However, one area where the Google Play Store is heaving with options is photo editing, so how good is Snapseed?

On the other you have Star Wars; the Force, light-sabers, Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker- a guy who nearly went to a very bad place with his own sister. Despite being a little disillusioned with the ongoing Angry Birds series in general, I downloaded it immediately. It must have been the Force…
Devil’s Attorney is a turn-based strategy battle game with a difference. Instead of the setting being some futuristic Japanese metropolis, or some fantasy land of wizards and heroes, Devil’s Attorney is rooted in a courtroom… in the 1980′s.

Help your outrageously guilty innocent clients get off in a game chock-full of humour and addictive gameplay.

Granny Smith loves her apples, after being swiped off the tree by a rascal on skates, she must dust off her blades and race through zany worlds; speeding down hills, somersaulting over obstacles, earning & unlocking powers & characters, throwing baseballs, and even zip-lining cables with her cane to collect her precious fruit and coins to beat the bandit.

Atom Launcher is a homescreen replacement app for your Android. Now, we’ve seen lots of launcher in the past, from excellent ones like ADW Launcher Ex, GO Launcher Ex and Apex Launcher, to expensive eye-candy like SPB Shell 3D and TSF Shell Pro. While we all have a much-loved favourite, now perhaps Atom Launcher should be vying for your attention. Available for devices running Android 4.0 and above, I personally think it would be how GO Launcher Ex would be if the GO Dev Team started again from scratch…

Fotor for Android
Fotor is an all-in-one photographic experience that includes camera, HDR camera, editing and collage functionality.

Read on and I’ll explain why I’m so excited about it.
