Physics puzzler Donut County now available for Android

Two years ago Annapurna Interactive released Donut County, a physics-based puzzler, on iOS devices alongside the console and PC versions, and now it’s just hit Android.

Clusterduck, a duck collection game, is out now for mobile

PikPok has released Clusterduck for iOS and Android devices. It’s a rather cute game where you breed and collect a variety of bizarre and quirky ducks.

Over the course of the game you breed some seriously strange types of duck, and the more you hatch the more likely they mutate into a nightmarish version of a duck. You might be familiar with PikPok from its previous mobile game, Flick Kick Football, which was released on iOS and Android. The concept for Clusterduck is rather wacky, but it began as a small project c…
