Affordable Huawei Y6 2017 goes official, still uses Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Huawei has already introduced two new Y series smartphones this month, so it’s no surprise the Chinese company silently launched a third one, the Y6 2017.

As the name suggests, the Y6 2017 is the sequel to the Huawei Y6, which was released on the market two years ago. Obviously, the new device comes with many improvements over the predecessor, so it’s definitely worth upgrading if that’s what you want to know.

However, since the Huawei Y6 2017 remains an affordable smartphone, its specs aren’t impressive at all. On top of that, the Chinese handset maker decided …

Cult Sega Genesis arcade fighter Comix Zone gets dusted off for the iPhone

Comix Zone is a cult classic game for the SEGA Genesis console. It pushed the late 80s-era 16-bit hardware to its limits, delivering an incredibly lifelike (at the time) comics brawler experience on top of an epic soundtrack! It’s fondly remembered both for its outstanding presentation and notorious difficulty. Simply put, you get beat up and die a lot, no matter how skilled you are with the Genesis’ awfully fragile joypad.

In Comix Zone, you get to play as Sketch Turner, a comic book artist trapped inside his own nightmarish world by Mortus, the evil guy from his stories who’s brought to …
