Explore trippy terrain while listening to Radiohead
This experimental collaboration between the band Radiohead and digital art/film studio Universal Everything was inspired by an interest in early computer life-experiments and ‘the imagined creatures of our subconscious’.
Born out of The King of Limbs sessions, it employs imagery and sounds from the song Bloom.
Best enjoyed with headphones to fully appreciate the ever-evolving ambient music, it sees you exploring a weird alien landscape with strangely hued plants, trees and mountains – all very trippy.

Can the Pebble Steel steal a march on the forthcoming Android Wear smartwatches? Find out in our full review
We loved the original Pebble smartwatch. While the device was pretty big and rather plasticky, the combination of great battery life, good performance and an excellent e-paper (monochrome LCD) screen convinced us that the Pebble, borne of out of a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, was the Smartwatch to buy.
Above all, the implementation was just what we felt a Smartwatch should be – it didn’t try to do too much, but what it did, it did well.
Fast forward to 2014 and here we have the second iteration of the Pebble. Since the release of the original a number of competitor devices have appeared offering more power, full colour screens and the ability to run more complex software on the device itself… how does Pebble respond?
Adventure puzzlers don’t come much better than this
The Broken Sword series of games has been ported on to many home consoles over the past few years, but it’s the Android exclusive titles that have really made the series come into its own.
The latest in the series, the Serpent’s Curse, is arguably the best yet. The game sees you tracking down the thief of a valuable painting, while also trying to get your head around a complex murder conspiracy at the same time.
From the get go you’re thrust into the action and with so many potential leads to follow, it can be a little daunting for new players to find their way.
Looking for an alternative to WhatsApp? We put Telegram to the test to see if it is a good alternative for Android users
Following the acquisition of WhatsApp by Facebook for a mind-boggling $19bn, a backlash has led to millions of the popular IM service’s users defecting to other clients, most notably Telegram.
This is mainly due to fears about personal privacy and the possibility of targeted adverts – even though Facebook has denied this and insists that WhatsApp will operate independently.
Either way, Telegram’s popularity has rocketed and it’s not hard to see why. For starters, this cloud-based IM service offers excellent data security through heavy encryption. In addition, its creators Paul and Nikolai Durov, co-founders of the Russian VK social network, have promised that it will remain ad- and subscription-free forever.
Gore, gore and even more gore
Playing as the aptly named John Gore, it’s your task to guide him through a whole horde of different enemies. There’s no complicated storyline, or even a thorough control system, instead the game relies solely on gameplay.
Each level puts you in a different location, where the enemies are all zombified. Using the dual touchscreen controls to shoot and slice your enemies, the action is fairly relentless. It takes a bit of coordination to get your thumbs working in tandem in the first instance, but it’s a fairly easy game to master.
The further you get into the game, the more enemies you’ll come across, as well as playable characters to tryout. Although enemies are varied and certainly look the part, there’s not a whole lot of difference between each playable character. This isn’t a massive issue when you consider up to 150 enemies can appear on your screen at any single time.
