We see a lot of the same tropes repeated over and over in mobile games, but Sword & Sworcery is something fresh and new – at least to Android. After showing up in the Humble Bundle a few weeks back, this innovative title has made it to the Play Store.

Sword & Sworcery is an adventure game that prides itself on its unique style. The music and retro art have been expertly designed to flow together. It's playful and really fun to experience with the social media integration and environmental variables. This isn't a throwaway game – it's engrossing.

You can pick up Sword & Sworcery for the one-time price of $1.99. Getting the game from Google Play instead of the Humble Bundle does make it easier to update and manage the app. It's a little hefty at 191MB, so make sure you've got WiFi available.

    They've really got to work on their marketing for this game. Maybe it's not the marketing as much as a clear presentation of how it plays. After watching 2 videos on YouTube, I've still only got the vaguest idea of what the game is like. Videos and descriptions make it look like a completely guided storyline with 80's throwback graphics.

    I don't really get the hype with this game. Played it on iOS. It's got some humor and cool music, but that's about it. You don't really do all that much in it.

      +1. Yup. Did not care at all for this game. And I usually love adventure games.

    Anybody have an idea how to sideload this onto a Kindle Fire Hd? I already purchased this through the google play store for my android phone, but would really like to play it on a tablet.
