Lemmings is the latest victim of mobile gaming, goes free-to-play on Android

Sony Interactive Entertainment and Sad Puppy Limited have decided to cash in on everyone’s favorite puzzle-platformer Lemmings by dumbing down the familiar gameplay and stuffing in as many in-app purchases as possible. So if you think you’d enjoy paying $7 every two hours to turn off an ever-present energy system, you’ll definitely love the new free-to-play Lemmings out now on the Play Store.

If you watch the above trailer, you’ll see an adorable mobile reimagining of the Lemmings franchise, which I have to admit looks somewhat appealing. Read MoreLemmings is the latest victim of mobile gaming, goes free-to-play on Android was written by the awesome team at Android Police.

Show off your Chrome dino-game skills with the arrival of cross-device high score sync

Since 2014, Chrome has featured a delightful little time waster that kicks in when your device doesn’t have internet access. It’s a game featuring a dinosaur that hops over cacti (and, eventually, other dinosaurs), in which your score increases as you progress through a pixelated desert. Until recently, that score was lost when you stopped playing, but as of Chrome version 72, it’s finally saved — and it even syncs between your devices.
