by Marty Gabel

Start the week off right with dreams of travel! GuidePal City Guides offers travel info on numerous world cities and it’s updated regularly to keep things fresh. Final Fantasy, the classic Square Enix RPG, which was originally released all the way back in 1987, has made its way onto Android. Also, we’ve also got the lowdown on Bourne Legacy: Operation Intel, a game tie-in to the upcoming Hollywood action/thriller flick.

GuidePal City Guides (Free)

This free Android app provides travel information and recommendations for 60 cities throughout the Americas, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, Asia and Australasia (with more to come). Conveniently enough, you only need to download the cities you want.

GuidePal uses a combination of locals and professional writers to update these city guides every 12 weeks so the information offered remains relevant and fresh. The app features high-definition maps which are available to view offline. Get info that will make you feel like a local next time you visit a new city.

Final Fantasy ($6.99)

Despite emerging on Google Play a month after its second sequel, Final Fantasy III, first appeared, news of the Android availability of the original Final Fantasy will no doubt be greeted with joy by fans of the Square Enix RPG series.

Final Fantasy is actually the Android version of the game that was first released on Sony’s handheld PSP, which, in turn, was a remake of the original NES version. Confused yet? Well, it’s still a touchscreen-optimized experience, full of the fun RPG action and epic storytelling you remember (or have come to expect) from Square Enix.

Bourne Legacy: Operation Intel (Free)

Though this movie isn’t out for a couple of weeks, the hype is probably building up somewhere. Why not get a headstart on your peers with this new game tie-in to the action/adventure spin-off starring Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton.

Use the app to embark on 10 real-world missions complete with global leaderboards. Success will unlock exclusive audio clips from The Bourne Legacy and reveal more about the mysterious Intel program. The game taps into your Android’s location-aware capabilities and missions can be played anywhere with Google Maps coverage.
