Welcome to the Android Apps and Games Roundup for the month of May, 2014.
I am not going to make bore you with details, so here we go straight to the list.
Bright Weather is a new weather widget from LevelUp Studio, the developers of Beautiful Widgets. The app is free, ad supported, and comes with a nice widget. You can also set up the app to display a persistent notification icon, which displays the weather on the status bar.

Nova Launcher recently added support for the “OK Google” hotword.
Battle Gems (AdventureQuest) is a match-3 RPG where you match stuff to battle the baddies, and yes there are Dragons in it.

Dark Lands is an odd mix of RPG and Endless Runners. But you shouldn’t let that fool you, the gameplay is quite entertaining. The game also has an adventure mode with 40 missions.
Monument Valley. I was a bit hesitant to include the game in this roundup, because it is a bit on the short side, and when you pay for a game you expect to play it for a while. The graphics and the sound track are top notch, but the puzzles could have been harder.

METAL SLUG DEFENSE. While not the greatest of defense games, I am simply including this for fans of Metal Slug, and the game’s free price tag.Watch out for the IAPs.

Push Panic is another iOS hit ported to Android. Tap blocks of the same color, build up a chain, and tap on one of them again to go boom. Watch out for the panic bar, if a block falls out, its all over.

Scurvy Scallywags is another match3-RPG. This one has Pirates. AARRR! What makes it unique, is the board shifts in the direction you make a match. Oh, this one was popular on iOS too.
