Square Enix Launches The Original Dragon Quest Onto AndroidDragon-Quest

For anyone who might have missed the news about this game this week, Square Enix has launched the third Dragon Quest game onto Android with the first installment in the series, the original Dragon Quest. This title unlike the others is a far cry from being pricey as it sits at a mere $2.99. For a great, classic title that probably has tons of hours of gameplay content we’d say $3 is a fantastic price. The game features a similar set of easy to use intuitive controls, and it’s viewed in the same vertical portrait mode as the other two games. This epic RPG classic was originally released back in the 80’s, and if you want a fun filled trip down memory lane the game looks to have some pretty rave reviews. As the legendary hero Erdrick, you’ll embark on a epic quest to vanquish the Dragon Lord. You can pick up Dragon Quest for $2.99 from the Play Store.

EA To Bring Sim City Build It To Android SoonSim City Build It

If you’re into the Sims games or any of the associated Sim City titles, EA is releasing a new game to Android in the future called Sim City Build It that will let gamers on the go create, build and change their cities how they please. EA says that you’ll be able to evolve your city in a variety of ways, and that you can “meet the citizens needs” to keep them happy or feel their wrath by making “questionable” decisions that will affect the city in a negative way. There’s full 360 degree rotation and you can pinch to zoom, pan, and analyze any section of your city. The game looks to have some pretty vivid high quality graphics in 3D, and although there is no price listing or date for launch that has been announced, we’d guess that the game will end up being a free-to-play title with an arrival date of sometime this Fall or Winter.
