Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got another one of Tin Man Games' unique RPG/book hybrids, a game where you beat cancer (literally), and a refreshing 2.5D endless platformer. Without further ado:
Tin Man is back with another one of its signature games, mixing tabletop RPG and Choose Your Own Adventure elements. Never let it be said that this developer lacks variety: the story in Hex Boyfriends is a sort of mix between Twilight and Sabrina the Teenage Witch. It's definitely a niche product, but those who love Tin Man's unique style will be happy for the new title. This is a sequel to the original game, Vampire Boyfriends, which is now just $.99 in the Play Store.
Strange Loves 2: Hex Boyfriends is a funny, romantic, supernatural interactive novel full of spells, grellings, warlocks, demons, graveyards, magical hipsters, tortured artists, a dangerous reverend, and one pretty amazing book that may or may not destroy the world. Return to Mountain State College in an all new supernatural adventure. This time you’ve got magical fingers, and you know how to use them. Learn spells, use magic, fight demons or become one, summon spirit animals, and fall in love all in one gamebook.
Re-Mission2: Nanobot's Revenge
There are some video game enemies chosen because they're universally and undeniably evil: Nazis, zombies, demons. You can add cancer to that list thanks to Re-Mission2. You play as a tiny nanobot fighting cancer mano-a-monocellular. The game itself is sort of like a reversed version of Missile Command, tasking the player with wiping out a tumor with various molecular weapons and super-moves.
You are a super-powerful microscopic robot battling evil cancer cells inside the human body. Your mission: destroy a growing tumor before the cancer baddies escape into the blood stream. Fight cancer and win in Re-Mission 2: Nanobot's Revenge. How can you defeat cancer? Select from your devastating arsenal of chemo, radiation, and targeted cancer-drug attacks to crush an army of malignant forces. Burn, slash, vaporize, and destroy cancer to save the day.
Dragon & Shoemaker
Psst. Hey, indie developers. Just because you're strapped for cash and manpower doesn't mean you need to resort to the played out "8-bit" visual style. Take Dragon & Shoemaker for example: this game mixes endless running and platforming (not unlike Wind-Up Knight) and manages to do so with polygonal character and environment design. Sure, the graphics aren't going to blow anyone away, but at least they're trying.
Dragon & Shoemaker is a challenging and extremely addictive 3D side-scrolling platform game, based on one of the most popular Polish legends about Shoemaker and the evil Dragon. The game will take you on a journey across an early medieval world of Cracow and its surroundings. Your goal is to guide Shoemaker through five different and exciting locations and to become Cracow’s legendary Hero – the Dragon Slayer.
