    They must be aimed more at adolescent girls and those types who cover themselves head to toe in that gawd awful colour?

    Super Meat Boy to Android?
    Yes. If it comes out, it'll come out for everything at the same time. I like Android more than I like iOS. - Tommy Refenes (Team Meat)

    In a recent interview on Formspring, Tommy Refenes (co-CEO of Team Meat) hinted at a port of the super hard Super Meat Boy to Android. The XBLA hardcore platformer has a cult following around the world and would be a welcome addition to Android.

    As a fan of the hunk on XBLA and now on PC, I would certainly play on my mobile. As a furiously difficult game, it works as a quick hit gaming experience but I would worry about swearing on the bus as I die over and over again.

    Reckless Racing 2 - Review
    Polarbit officially released Reckless Racing 2 yesterday on the Android Market (2nd February), and I have been lucky enough to have the demo version for a week now.

    Unfortunately I review games on Sony Ericsson's Xperia PLAY, and whilst the game promised to be Xperia PLAY optimised, the controls bugged out completely and the game was a total malfunctioning mess. Emails were exchanged, and finally, last night I was told the control issues had been addressed and I could finally get to grips with the most anticipated sequel in mobile gaming history.

    I have to admit that I did prefer Reckless Getaway to the original Reckless Racing. I adored the absolute arcade feel to the game, the flawless controls, stunning graphics and vehicle physics with super slick race tracks. All the aforementioned have been transferred, and-then-some to Reckless Racing 2 with superb results.

    From the offset with the familiar loading screen, graphics are crisp and bright through to the UI which is easy navigated. The options available here are race choice, car upgrades / purchases and gameplay options. I would recommend turning off the default race guide and changing the camera to ‘Use Chase Camera’ to make life a little easier.

    There are 12 different cups within the ‘Career Mode’, each consisting of at least 5 races within, ‘Arcade’ has 40 races and then there are the ‘single race’ and ‘multiplayer’, making longevity as long as you like, or at least until you get bored.

    When your thumbs get stiff from all the acceleration you can always spend some time to ‘rude boy’ up your ride. Paint jobs, artwork, or a new spoiler can be bought with your winnings which not only look boss but can actually improve the specs of your car.

    So let’s get down to the actual racing shall we?

    I started off having a few of the single races to get used to the racing controls but up, down, left and right doesn’t take long to get used to. I soon turned to Career Mode and that is where the fun really starts. Race types are varied and exciting, with brilliant backgrounds to distract and flummox the brain and I soon had worked through 3 cups (coming 1st btw :-P).

    The only slight bug issue is within multiplayer mode. Whenever another player came near my car within a race it started lagging which was absolutely distracting to a point of crashing. (This was within my own game room so if you have found anything different, please let me know).

    It is fantastic having the ability to play my friends and work colleagues at MoDaCo within multiplayer at Reckless Racing 2 but this isn’t what makes this game grand. The variety of races, the easy controls, the exceptional game physics, excellent graphics, suitable soundtrack and permanence on my home screen says it all.

    The ONLY thing missing with this game is the ability to play it on Xbox LIVE arcade. A next step for Polarbit?

    Reckless Racing 2 is available now on the Android Market for £3.15.

    I did hear back from Polarbit yesterday evening, and I was told that control isses for the Xperia PLAY were to be fixed the next morning, i.e today.

    Please do not panic if you downloaded for the Xperia PLAY. The issue is being addressed and all will be playable from today.

    Reckless Racing 2
    Polarbit have today released Reckless Racing 2 onto the Android Market.


    We did receive a demo copy early to review, but unfortunately the controls on the Xperia PLAY had issues and made it unplayable for me. Not to say that it is unplayable on ALL Xperia PLAYs (I did email and they are working on a solution). We will have a review online in due course!

    The game is available to buy NOW from the Android Market priced at £3.17.

    Super Bit Dash
    Super Bit Dash, by FakePup Games is now available on Android and it's entirely free on the Market. Sweet!

    There seems to be a never ending conveyor belt of retro games being ported to Android devices. Let's hope it continues!

    Super Bit Dash is fast, fun, intuitive and addictive. Its two difficulty settings make sure even casual players can swipe away from start to finish before tackling the more challenging game modes.

    One of it's main features are the randomly assembled levels. Every time you play the game it stitches small rooms/levels together, combining the pleasure of carefully conceived level design with the surprise of randomly generated content.
    Here are the game’s highlights:

    *8-bit inspired art
    *Openfeint Achievements
    *Intuitive Touch controls
    *Randomly assembled levels
    *Easy to pick up and play, challenging to master
    *Old School platforming action using swipes and taps - no clunky virtual d-pads.
    *Two difficulty settings
    *8-bit inspired soundtrack
    *Store to buy powerups and characters using in-game coins

    This indie game hopes to capture the imagination of gamers of old with its 8-bit graphics and chip-tune soundtrack, while still catering to the tastes of the new generation of mobile gamers.
