Fight for the forest in Animals vs Mutants

2

Netmarble is South Korea's largest mobile game publisher, but they've never had much of a US presence – until now. The newly-formed Netmarble US has just released its first game: Animals vs. Mutants. It's available for free on both Android and iOS.

Sure, Animals vs. Mutants is a different name for a game. But not that long ago, you'd have said the same about Plants vs. Zombies. The concept is sound – an evil scientist has started experimenting on woodland critters, turning them into malicious mutants. Only the player can rescue the remaining animals, by fighting it out on foot and summoning animal helpers to aid in the battle.

Whatcha doing tonight? Give our app a go!

67

Kick your feet up. Take a load off. Pour a glass of something, preferably cool and refreshing. Or maybe just a tad warm, seeing as how for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere it's the first day of fall.

And then while you're at it, take a minute and give the official Android Central app a try!

Inside the new Moto app, home to most of the cool Moto X features

28
Moto app on the Moto X 2014

All of your favorite features are back on the Moto X, this time housed in a single app

On one level, not too much has changed in the 2014, insofar as the software is concerned. You still have the hotword voice actions, you still have the peeking notifications, and Motorola Assist is still on board, with its bevy of cool features.

New with the 2014 Moto X is that they've all been moved under a single umbrella app, simply called "Moto."

Let's take a quick walk around the new space to get our bearings.
