Fresh Android Apps for May 29: LUMIX remote, Castle Master 3D, Joj The Alien LITE

by Ian Black

Hope your Memorial Day Weekend was great! Now, it’s back to the grind of checking out fresh Android Apps.

For an electronics “love match” download LUMIX remote, and for fun, try Castle Master 3D or Joj The Alien Lite.

LUMIX remote (Free)

Now your Android converses with your digital camera. We’ve seen similar apps from other camera makers but this fresh app comes from Panasonic and supports their popular LUMIX DMC-FX90 compact camera.

The app shows the live screen through the camera’s viewfinder, lets you adjust the zoom and snap a still photo, and sports a “self shot” feature perfect for capturing a self portrait. The app requires you to download a firmware upgrade to your Panasonic camera before this Android app will work. Expect the app to support other LUMIX models in the future.

Castle Master 3D (Free)

The demons of Hades have overrun the humans and taken over 45 castles, but now the humans fight back!

Try your hand at this 3-D role-playing game (RPG) that’s already a huge hit in Asia. Fight with 300 other warriors to conquer the castle held by 300 demons. Build and adapt your character to become a one-handed, two-handed, or battle-ax wielding soldier then take to the battlefield and storm the castle walls.

Here’s a hint for everyone: woo the beautiful daughter of Zeus and she might just gift you the indestructible Zeus Blade!

Joj The Alien Lite (Free)

This alien’s spacecraft got knocked out of space by a meteor storm. His ship ended up in pieces scattered across the planet. Now, it is up to you to help Joj find all the pieces and put it back together.

Like Where’s My Water?, getting Joj through each puzzle level by guiding him from the start to the end where the spaceship piece lies will both confound and thrill. Adjust levers, springs, and other items to help Joj, who can only roll, to navigate each course.

Play over three worlds to win, each with 18 levels. The game includes a great soundtrack, and OpenFeint integration.
