Rock and sock some robots in Ironkill

3

The movie Real Steel might have been fairly forgettable, but the two mobile games based on it have enjoyed a fair little following. The team leads from the mobile Reel Steel and Total Recall titles have left Reliance Entertainment in order to form their own studio, Play Motion. And Play Motion's first game sticks with what they know: robots punching other robots.

Ironkill has just launched on Android and iOS as a free to play title. Players can collect and upgrade a wide assortment of stylized robots, and then journey across a post-apocalyptic map to battle it out against other robot trainers. With solid graphics and simple controls, Ironkill promises plenty of fun robot-on-robot violence.

Google will give you $5 for inviting a friend to use Wallet

41

While this seems like something right out of those chain forward emails where Bill Gates was tracking the email and would give you a share of his fortune, it's not — Google wants you to use Google Wallet more to send cash to your friends, and they're willing to put their money where their mouth (and your wallet) is. So from now until either 20,000 referrals are sent or November 30th his, Google will give you $5 in credit for each time you send money with Google Wallet along with an invitation to a new user (up to 20 times, and "even a penny works").

Motorola's latest Spotlight story is a beautiful tale

15
Duet Spotlight Story

If you've got a Moto X or second-generation Moto G, take a few minutes this morning and enjoy the latest Spotlight Story. Dubbed "Duet," and from Disney animator Glen Keane, it's a fun little take that starts out with a couple bare baby butts and follows the crazy kids through adolescence and into adulthood in just a couple minutes, all in that interactive style we've come to enjoy.

And it basically hits this father of two right where it was intended. If you've got kids, make 'em try to enjoy it with you.

Just grab your phone today and look for it to fire on up. And if you've never seen the other two — Buggy Night and Windy Day — definitely check them out in the Spotlight app.
