The Rivers of Alice is mesmeric adventure through an alternate universe. Find out more in our review of this top Android game
The Rivers of Alice is without doubt one of the most beautiful and well designed games we’ve encountered on the Google Play store and if you mix that in with the superb puzzle gameplay, you’re on to one of the most rewarding game experiences for a while.
The game sees you play as Alice, a girl lost in an alternate world and you must guide her through it solving problems as you go.
There’s no controls as such and instead you guide Alice through taps on the screen to move from panel to panel, with certain objects on each panel are interactive. These objects often contain puzzles for you to solve and gradually get harder as you progress.
We review Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, the latest port of the popular RPG series to Android phones
Square Enix has been gradually porting over the popular Final Fantasy series over to Android devices with great success.
FF IV: The After Years follows on closely from the original FF IV, offering users some classic RPG moments with a great bit of storytelling thrown in for good measure.
Where The After Years stands out from the rest is that there are multiple storylines for players to get to grips with.
We review the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8, an Android tablet with innovative design and long battery life
Tablet makers don’t often try very hard to make their tablets look like something other than rectangular slabs. That’s odd, really, since doing so could give them the edge over the competition.
Sony has taken a stab at doing something a bit different with its wedge shaped Tablet S, and now Lenovo has also moved away from the norm with its Yoga tablet design. This comes in 8-inch and 10-inch versions and we took a look at the smaller size.
One of the long edges is a tube that’s grippable when you are working in portrait screen mode. It is weighted as it contains the battery. The power switch is at one end, headphones slot at the other.
We review Assassin’s Creed Pirates for Android. Does this mobile game live up to the standards set by its console counterparts?
It can be quite worrying when companies attempt to port big console brands on to Android devices, so we met Assassin’s Creed Pirates with some reservation at first.
The game is a spin-off on the recent console hit Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, seeing you play as Alonzo Batilla, a young pirate aiming to control the seven seas. To do so he must fight in various naval battles and take over opposition ships.
After the lengthy tutorial, you’re thrown in the deep end of the game and are required almost instantly to fight of an enemy pirate attack and it’s from there where you start to notice a few key issues.

We review the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO, the high end productivity tablet running Android 4.4 and packing a 12 inch display
Samsung is one of the keenest tablet makers around. It has a range of devices, at a variety of sizes, with and without 3G and 4G support. The pen friendly Galaxy Note range started off with a large phone-sized device and has since grown into the bigger screened tablet space too.
The new Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 takes the Note concept to its extreme putting it into a huge tablet with a 12.2 inch screen.
The net result is something quite amazing. The Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 is unquestionably huge. It is heavy too. At 750g you aren’t going to want to hold it in one hand for very long. But actually, this device is about a different type of tablet based computing.
