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 a space pirate math game, a randomized roguelike, and a rebooted Sega jumper. Without further ado:


Cosmonautica (EARLY ACCESS)

Cosmonautica is probably as close as we're ever going to get to a real Futurama game. In this science fiction romp you manage and expand your cosmic corporate empire, by which I mean one crappy ship. Buy low and sell high in an impressively cartoony 3D world, managing your crew and fighting off the various brigands that wait between stations. It's part Sims and part Space Trader, but it's all early access, so be prepared to encounter a few bugs in the EPS manifold.


Cosmonautica is a fresh genre mix in a quirky and humorous universe, paired with funky space tunes for your intergalactic enjoyment. You will be an aspiring captain on the hunt for fame and fortune. Are you ready for some hilarious adventures in outer space? Cosmonautica combines elements of space trading and life simulation to create an unique experience. Only if you take good care of your crew you will be able to succeed.

Rogue's Tale

If you don't know what roguelike is by now, you probably won't like them. If you do, you enjoy randomized levels and permanent death, not to mention an insane amount of "retro" pixelated graphics. So if dungeon-crawling one square at a time for equal amounts of randomized battles and epic loot is your bag of holding, pick this one up - it has no ads or in-app purchases.


Travel the world, searching for the biggest and baddest foes to beat, looting treasures and gaining strength. Become the best warrior of the land.

  • Large, procedurally generated dungeons full of riches
  • No In-App purchases or advertisement. Buy it and play it.
  • Over 120 enemies to defeat
  • Five playable classes
  • True 'rogue-like' experience made right for mobile gaming

Sonic Jump Fever

Do you think this game looks a lot like Sonic Jump? That's because it is. For some reason, Sega decided to redesign and re-release the original, now with 100% more FREE and probably somewhere in the vicinity of 40% more in-app purchases. So, yeah, this is the Amazing Spider-Man of Sega mobile games. It does have a few more fast-paced moves than the original, but it also seems noticeably easier, and the original wasn't that hard.


Catch the FEVER in an explosive race against the clock. Compete with Sonic and friends in high-speed bursts of vertical jumping mayhem. FREE and based on SEGA’s hit Sonic Jump. Prove you are the best. Rack up huge combos to blast past your friends’ high scores. Use boosters, upgrades, unique character abilities to maximize your score. Then kick into overdrive with Fever Mode and hit the top of the Leaderboard.

    Does Sonic have Michael William voice? I simply can't see Sonic without his voice anymore...

    Somic Jump Fever asks for Superuser permissions!

    Too bad it doesn't have the cloud save function like Sonic Dash.

    Cosmonautica (the Early Access version) first appreared in some countries' Play Store LAST MONTH!

    Rogue's Tale is actually a one-man project by Dutch developer Niels "Gorbear" Uiterwijk who is also the maker of Them Blockz and Promised Lands.
    In Sonic Jump Fever, Tails, not Sonic, is unlocked from the very beginning, and the game has an energy meter. Unlocking any other playable character, befriending a Chao immediately, or quickly refilling the energy meter costs tokens that can be purchased with with real money.

    I dislike most of these apps, I'd rather puzzles like 2048 goo.gl/wZ91Ik or puzzle chest
