Sonic's back! Again! You knew Sega would never let him die. He can't, he's too fast. Plus, a new game from Halfbrick is on the way, and an awesome puzzle game wiggles its way to Android.
Colossatron's arrival is imminent - Colossatron: Massive World Threat is on its way. The upcoming game from Jetpack Joyride developer Halfbrick tells the tale of a powerful creature that arrives from space with one goal in mind: destroy all the stuff! Control this massive snake as you shape it to overcome every obstacle thrown in its path. Guaranteed to be more fun than it sounds, and since it sounds like a bunch of drunken monkeys in a barrel, it'll be awesome. Look for Colossatron this Thursday on iOS and Android.
Jelly no Puzzle on Android - Qrostar's unique and extremely challenging puzzle game Jelly no Puzzle has made its way to Android devices, courtesy of Jelly Crew! The goal is simply to combine all the jelly blocks on each level by sliding jellys back and forth. They can't jump, but they'll fall off ledges and can stand on top of one another. Once a jelly touches another of the same color, they merge into a larger one and can't be separated, which means that they may not fit into places they previously did... or block the way for others. All the awesomeness of the original downloadable game, packed into your pocket.
Sonic 2 on iOS - Remastered and re-tooled for the touch screen, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was recently released for iOS devices. Kind of a strange concept, but you'll be amazed at how good this looks. And controls, for that matter, although it's never ideal missing out on physical buttons for a speed-based platformer. The game includes a few extras, like a boss attack mode and support for two players, but the real kicker is the inclusion of the Hidden Palace Zone, an area that was scrapped from the original release!
