This week was huge in Android games, with GameStop’s release of its Kongregate Arccade app, then its abrupt prohibition from the Market. The move shook the mobile game industry, making us wonder about the direction of extended game platforms (and especially Google’s long-term intentions). Fortunately, there’s plenty of other new games to play this week, with some big name updates to check out as well.

HollyWood Empire turns you into a movie producer, signing four actors and actresses to a single film. The goal is to make a blockbuster, but just as in real life, the wrong celebrity combo could also make for a bust. But the show must go on!
