King of Thieves, ZeptoLab’s unique platforming / PvP game, is available on Android via Google Play. You control your very own adorable thief and strike out to steal gold and gems from other players in hopes of making a name for yourself on the game’s leaderboards. Since most players have the good sense to protect their lairs with traps galore, getting away with thievery takes some fancy footwork.
King of Thieves is free, and you can download it for Android here.

We pride ourselves on doing the hard things – the things that do not seem possible. And like many of our games – Clumsy Ninja, CSR Racing – Dawn of Titans began with us asking what was possible to deliver on a mobile device.
Fans of Pixelbite’s tactical shooter, Space Marshals, should take note. Chapter 2 is finally available as a free download.The first chapter garnered a 4.5 out of 5 from Touch Arcade.

AppSpy goes hands-on with Totter, a strange-looking game that has you endlessly balancing on a single point. The idea is to stay upright for as long as possible – not bad advice when you’re seemingly miles above the ground. However, a lot of hazards want to bring you down, including wind and, bizarrely, beach balls. Totter hits iOS on March 19.
Does Not Commute was easily one of the games I was most looking forward to seeing at GDC, and it did not disappoint. This new game from the fine folks at Mediocre Games was easily one of the highlights.
