DJ space (Free)

What’s it about? DJ space is a bit of a weird take on your common music mixing app – it actually enables the creation of solar systems and places planets in orbits to create sounds.

What’s cool? There are a few apps in the Google Play store that help musicians make and mix music, but with DJ space, presentation is everything. Instead of adding and adjusting samples on a grid or a mixing board, the game presents you with a view of space filled with stars. Samples are represented by planets, and you can place those planets around stars to create mixes. Adding more planets adds to a section of the track, and adding more solar systems adds to the overall track to create a galaxy that represents the whole song. When you're done, you can export what you've made as a .wav file.

Who’s it for? Fans of making their own electronic music, with an astronomical theme, should check out DJ space.

What’s it like? DJ Control and Mixify are two more mixing apps that are worth your attention.

House of the Dead Overkill: LR (Free)

What’s it about? Blast hordes of zombies in House of the Dead Overkill: LR, a mobile version of the Sega classic series that has graced many arcades.

What’s cool? House of the Dead was originally born as an arcade game in 1997. In the game, players use light guns, those gun controllers you can actually aim at the screen, to take down zombies. The mobile version takes the same approach – you play in a first-person view with zombies staggering toward you. House of the Dead embraces a sort of B-movie style with plenty of goofy zombies (including zombie strippers, yikes), and has three different play modes of zombie-shooting mayhem.

Who’s it for? Fans of zombies and shooters should try House of the Dead Overkill: LR, but it's not an appropriate selection for kids, as it’s gratuitously violent and gory.

What’s it like? Check out Dead Trigger and Into the Dead for some great first-person zombie action.
