Trials Frontier review: training wheels

Trials is a series that's built on completing short courses of about a minute each, so it makes sense that Ubisoft and RedLynx would bring their motorcycle-driven series to mobile devices. Trials Frontier makes a valiant effort to reach the heights of its console big brothers, even in the face of familiar (and unwelcome) free-to-play elements. Though Frontier may not quite have the same addictive pull as its predecessors, it's a very solid racing game on its own and one that transitions well to mobile platforms.

Frontier immediately stands out from previous Trials games by introducing a story. A western-themed town is being terrorized by a notorious biker and it's up to the player to track him down and beat him in a one-on-one race. This element allows the game to add in various characters to offer missions and goals for certain trial runs.

Sev Zero review: Amazon's first Fire TV exclusive tested

Amazon's first big exclusive game for Fire TV is Sev Zero, which combines tower defense strategy with a third-person shooter.

Players start with an overhead view of the map, where they decide which fixed locations to place towers onto. Once ready, aliens start invading and players are dropped into the battlefield, having to blast away any alien creatures before they can make their way through the maze to the power core. You'll get some down time to upgrade and place new towers in-between waves, and will earn a cash bonus if you start the new wave before a timer runs out.
