Zenonia 4 £Free

Get your RPG on with the fourth Zenonia installment – Gamevil has ramped up the graphics and there's online player vs player battles. It's a free download but watch out for in-app purchases as gold will cost you real life monies.

Chrome Beta £Free

Chrome hit Android this week and fans of Google's browser will no doubt love features like the tabs stack, bookmarks and one-click sync with the desktop version. It's not all good news though as Chrome Beta is Ice Cream Sandwich only to start. Meanies.

Fragger £Free

Grenade launch to your heart's content in Fragger, a fun little game from Miniclip that rocks over 300 levels to keep you in a suitably aggressive mood on the morning commute. Worlds include snowy scenes and a pirate ship but the premise remains simple – blow stuff up.
