Welcome back to 'and the rest...', a regular(ish) round-up of the news stories that didn't quite qualify as front-page news.

Either that, or we've been too busy chipping chunks off Curiosity's cube…

Big updates

Shellrazer - the barmy strategy game starring a giant turtle covered in guns - has received a hefty new update. It now supports iPhone 5, for one thing. Plus, it's got a new world (with 25 levels), two new weapons, and more enemies.

Scribblenauts Remix - the game where you can magically conjure up objects by writing their names - now has a Thanksgiving playground. Plus, support for iPhone 5.

New releases

Ty the Tasmanian Tiger

Who remembers Ty the Tasmanian Tiger? Hands up. Well, you can both relive those happy moments with Boomerang Blast - a new iOS game featuring the world's least memorable mascot. You flick 'rangs at targets, and complete objectives. It's free on iOS.

Bronze Award-winning corpse killer Zombie Highway is now out on Android. It costs 59p / 99c, and involves you mowing down the undead over eight levels.

Another iOS port now. Tiny Troopers - which we said "just doesn't make war fun enough for a whole-hearted recommendation" - is now available on Android. It's free, if you still want to give it a go.

On the horizon

Shadowgun: DeadZone, the online-only multiplayer game from Madfinger Games, is currently in beta. It will be available to all - on iOS and Android - on November 15th.

Star Command

Sadly, we might have to wait until January to play much-anticipated space sim Star Command. In an update on the game's Kickstarter page, the game's dev team says it doesn't want to compete with the December sales. See you in 2013, then, cadets.

The Kickstarter campaign for Hitcents's Draw a Stickman: Epic may have failed to drum up a lot of funding-shaped interest from the gaming community, but that didn't stop the team. It came out on iOS, and is heading to Android soon. Hitcents's Craig Dehut says his team "plans to release that in the next two weeks".

The rest of the rest

Too bad, fans of indie studio Vlambeer: gangster rap-inspired shooter Gun Godz is never heading to iOS. "Its way too fast to even get close to making a good iOS version of that," the studio tweeted. We'll have to make do with Super Crate Box.

Wow. That's disappointing for us that we won't be playing Star Command for Christmas... Just think of all those people getting shiny devices and wanting a sweet Space Sim with humor.

It just seems like they'd only get MORE downloads if they put it out by Christmas. I kind of think this game will blow up on the app store, so I don't know what they're worried about.
