For Pocket Gamer, Jon Mundy provides a list of worthy titles for the player looking for Metal Gear Solid-style gameplay on the go, if the recent Metal Gear Survive isn’t sating that niche. The long range assassinations of Hitman: Sniper, the camera-hacking sleuthing of Republique, and several others make an appearance.

Tre Lawrence on Android Rundown lists several of the most interesting Android releases available at the moment, touching a wide assortment of genres from Mad Skills BMX 2’s tricks and tracks to Hostage Negotiator‘s unique premise of a board game.

And finally on 148Apps, Nicholas Tylwalk put together a breakdown of Vainglory’s hectic new 5 vs 5 mode. The larger conflicts of this mode means three lanes to control instead of just one, new items like teleport boots, and a Vain crystal that is both has better defenses and more shields.
