Riptide GP: Renegade

Android Police coverage: Riptide GP: Renegade brings premium jet ski racing to the SHIELD TV, phone and tablet release coming later

Riptide is back for another round of water racing, and this time it's a full premium game. Players can go through career mode, online multiplayer, or local splitscreen with nary an IAP in sight, so long as they're up for a $10 purchase. The sci-fi single-player racing campaign is a little much for the game to carry, but the high-end racing is as entertaining as it ever was. At the moment Riptide GP Renegade is exclusive to the SHIELD TV, but it'll come to Android phones and tablets soon.

--

Experience the future of illicit hydrojet racing, where armored riders kick out death-defying stunts over massive waterfalls, dodge cops through public waterways, and boost at breakneck speeds across surging waves. You are a hydrojet rider, framed and cast out from the Riptide GP league, forced to race illegally through city waterways, flooded ruins, and churning factory machinery in an effort to reclaim your reputation and your title.

Reigns

Android Police coverage: Reigns from Devolver Digital takes the Tinder approach to medieval kingdom management

You wouldn't think that medieval kingdom management and casual online dating would be an effective peanut butter-and-chocolate combo, but then Reigns would prove you wrong. This game is nothing but a series of yes/no choices presented Tinder-style, with each choice bringing your kingly butt closer to a grisly death or forestalling it for another year. The game is amazingly engrossing for something so simple, and well worth the three dollars (and no IAP) to check it out.

--

Sit on the throne as a benevolent (or malevolent) medieval monarch of the modern age and swipe your royal fingers either left or right to impose your will upon the kingdom. Survive the seemingly never-ending gauntlet of requests from your advisors, peasants, allies, and enemies while maintaining balance between the influential factions of your kingdom. But beware; each decision you make might have implications and unfortunate consequences down the road that could put your reign and family’s dynasty at risk.

Dropsy

Android Police coverage: Dropsy from Devolver Digital is now live in the Play Store with hugs for all

Holy crap, this game is cute. It's like Barney and Thomas the Tank Engine gave birth to a pixelated Bichon Frise. But since you're playing as an It-style clown, complete with disturbing undertones of abuse, it's the kind of cloying, terrifying cuteness you get from shows on Adult Swim. In Dropsy your mission is to hug everyone in the world in a point-and-click adventure style while trying to stave off the conclusion of your acid trip. It's exactly as weird as it sounds.

--

After a deadly circus fire shatters his world and tarnishes his name, Dropsy the Clown finds himself on a journey of self-discovery through a story that harnesses powerful themes of love and kindness. With his father gravely ill and the world turning its back on a once happy-go-lucky clown, Dropsy will need to help those in need, hug total strangers, and unravel dark and shameful secrets from his past on the way to redemption. Oh, and Dropsy can also talk to animals.

Perchang

Android Police coverage: Perchang is a neat Rube Goldberg machine puzzler, now available free on Android

It's been a long time since I've seen a physics puzzle game that was so well-presented. Perchang (I have no idea how to pronounce it, ask the developer) is basically a 2.5D version of games like Mousetrap, where the entire point is to make a Goldberg machine to get balls from point A to point B. Timers keep things tense and an ever-expanding toolset keep things interesting. The game is free with ads, which can be permanently banished for under two bucks.

--

Welcome to Perchang. A test of skill and puzzle solving across 60 stunning levels. Exercise your brain and test your coordination to guide the tiny balls to their goal. Activate flippers, magnets, portals, fans, anti-gravity hoops and many more gizmos to complete each mind bending stage. Don't take too long though.... You're on the clock. Using our unique and easy to use control system, the power is in your hands to solve puzzles and test your skills.

Mars: Mars

Android Police coverage: Mars: Mars is a delightful low-poly platformer mixed with an endless runner

No, this game is not called "Mrs. Mars" as I initially thought, though an alien beauty competition might also be interesting. Instead Mars: Mars is a mixture of endless runner and platformer with quite a lot of charm to make up for its lack of innovation. The cartoony characters and low-poly graphics keep you invested, even if you're not a fan of the die, die again jetpack mechanics. And for a game ostensibly about the famously uniform red planet, there's a surprising amount of variety in the stages.

--

MarsCorp is ready to take the first group of volunteers on an exciting mission to Mars. Fly around Mars in one of our brand new jetpacks and discover what’s out there. As part of the “Put A Human On Mars No Matter What” program, we are proud to announce that MarsCorp is the first company cutting enough corners to make human flights to Mars finally viable. So-called “professional” astronauts will tell you things like “No sane person would travel across space on that thing” or “The fuel on that jetpack lasts about 30 seconds”, but you can prove them wrong. Here’s your chance to make history.

MOBIUS FINAL FANTASY

Android Police coverage: Mobius Final Fantasy gives the famous console series a freemium mobile makeover

It's been a few years since we've seen an original Final Fantasy game on Android, and even longer since we saw one that wasn't a sarcastic nostalgia cash-in. There are plenty of nods to previous Fantasies in Mobius, but they're the side dish to an original story and turn-based combat system. The game features full 3D graphics in the style of FFX onward, and oddly, it's vertical-only and meant to be played with one hand. It's also rather depressingly packed with in-app purchases.

--

Experience an exciting story penned by Kazushige Nojima of FINAL FANTASY VII and FINAL FANTASY X fame, visualized with 3-D graphics never before seen in an RPG for mobile phones. Each chapter release will be accompanied by grand in-game events adding new playable content and exciting customization items for your character. Experience a new battle system specifically designed for mobile devices, creating highly tactical battles where each action flows into the next, chaining attacks and abilities in a rhythmic flow that brings destruction to your foes.

Championship Manager 17

Android Police coverage: Championship Manager 17 returns for another free-to-play go around the soccer field

Square-Enix will continue to make Championship Manager games until the heat death of the universe or until people stop giving them money, whichever comes first. This year's roster update doesn't add any new teams or leagues, but it does allegedly have a new interface. If that single improvement has you reaching for your credit card to hand over $100 in in-app purchases, well more power to you, prospective soccer team manager.

--

The original and best football management game is back for the 16/17 season with new team data, a brand new look and all new features. Choose from more than 450 clubs to manage, across 15 countries and 25 leagues including the English Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga & Serie A.

Hyperburner

Remember the scene in Return of the Jedi where the Millennium Falcon has to squeeze its way through the Death Star's tiny maintenance passage? Hyperburner is that experience distilled into a mobile game. Gameplay is pretty simple - just don't run into anything - but the 3D graphics are so smooth and appealing that you won't care. Get a handle on the sharp controls and you can unlock new stages and ships. Hyperburner is $3 with no in-app purchases, and it works with Android TV as well.

--

Hyperburner is a high-speed space flier set in a distant colonial solar system. Take your ship through increasingly dangerous courses, unlocking endless-mode leaderboards as you go. Built for mobile with smooth and responsive free-steering, playable in portrait or landscape.

  • Fast-paced gameplay, instant respawns.

Steppy Pants

Steppy Pants has been something of a casual hit over on iOS. The setup is simple to the point of being sarcastic: tap to make the ragdoll player step forward, hold to time for a longer lunge. The only point is to avoid stepping on the cracks in the sidewalk. Progression and graphics (and almost everything else) are borrowed from Crossy Road. It's free with a dollar or two for cosmetic unlocks.

--

Steppy Pants, the most realistic walking simulator you'll play this year. Keep your cool when faced with insurmountable odds, like reckless drivers and an inexplicable inability to step on sidewalk cracks. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll remember just how much fun you can have walking down the street. We've been playing this game non-stop for months and it still makes us chortle.

Agricola All Creatures...

While most board games (and their mobile adaptations) have some form of combat or at least conflict, Agricola takes a much more civilized approach. You're a farmer managing a series of fields and the livestock grazing within. Whoever ends with the biggest farm wins, then gets to legislate their own monopoly by manipulating agribusiness laws with excessive lobbying. (That last part might not be true.) The two-player setup can be played against the computer or via online multiplayer.

--

Agricola: All Creatures Big & Small is a digital adaptation of Uwe Rosenberg's award-winning two-player board game featuring farming and livestock breeding. You’re in charge of growing a farm from its simple beginnings -- just a hut and some fields. Send your workers to the village market to barter for goods and livestock. Breed different animals. Eventually, with your ever-growing animal population and special buildings, you’ll compete against your neighbors to see who has the best farm.

The Manga Works

Kairosoft is back with their unique management sim/RPG formula, and this time they're tackling the intense world of manga production. Japanese comics and cartoons have a reputation of being a cutthroat, relentless industry, so the subject matter should make for some interesting play mechanics. If you manage to make a quality manga you'll gain riches, acclaim, and merchandising revenue. If not, it's back to the grind to try it again. The Manga Works is $5 with no in-app purchases.

Minesweeper Flags Challenge

You wouldn't think that there's much that can be done with a concept as old as minesweeper, but this little game manages to find new ground. It uses the old Windows standard as the basis for a multiplayer game, either online versus humans or against a computer opponent. The key is to try to clear the board while leaving your opponent no obvious moves on the handmade stages. Flags Challenge is free with ads, and IAP goes up to only $3.

--

Minesweeper Flags Challenge requires logical and tactical thinking in order to uncover mines before your opponent beats you to it. It's a modern take on the classic minesweeper flags game. Download it for free and see if you can beat the computer player on the classic map or try to progress through the 50 hand-made custom maps.

  • Classic grid : Use tactics to beat the computer as quickly as possible, beat your personal best and compare times on the leaderboard.
  • Campaign mode : 50 levels of custom maps, ranging from easy to super hard.
  • Online : Challenge your friends via Google Play Games.
  • Bombs. : Think strategically in order to deploy bombs capable of revealing large chunks of the map.

Pixelgrams: Pixel Puzzles

The blocky, simplistic shapes of pixel art are all the rage in indie game design, but this puzzle game uses them as stages instead. Players are given a limited space in which to drop tiles and a limited amount of time to place pieces in the correct spot and orientation. It's a bit like a mix between a jigsaw puzzle and the old board game Perfection. It's free with ads, but they can be banished for two bucks.

--

Pixelgrams: Pixel Puzzles is a free-to-play puzzle game, sort of like a pixel jigsaw. Players reassemble pixel pictures from pixel puzzle pieces (polyominoes for puzzle and mathematics fans), fixing Kitzel the Cat’s world and uncovering what happened to Star Town. Pixelgrams features:

  • 144 levels of puzzle-solving pixel-piece-placing fun.
  • Gorgeous pixel art that makes you feel like you’re actually making something, not just wasting time.
  • Super-cute soundtrack composer-in-chief, chiptune wonder woman Chipzel.
  • An adorable cat.
  • That’s basically it.

FIE Swordplay

Fans of classical fencing like to call it "physical chess," which doesn't sound like it would make for much of a video game. But at least one developer would beg to differ, and FIE Swordplay is the result: a one-on-one fighter that uses the highly technical standards of fencing for play mechanics. Graphics are good and so is the timing (Olympic fencing will begin in a few days). You can fight the computer as much as you like, but the multiplayer portion of the game is asynchronous. There are in-app purchases for currency, but they don't go above $5.

--

FIE Swordplay is the first mobile game with real athletic rules for fencing with foils, swords, and sabers that is officially supported by the FIE (http://fie.org). Learn real techniques — from simple thrusts to powerful lunges and devious feints. Play against an AI opponent or challenge a social network friend to a duel. Choose the country you want to represent, equip your fencer, and enter tournaments all over the world. Fight your way from ambitious novice to fencing master.

It's A Space Thing

It's a Space Thing is a fast-paced, old-school shooter in the vein of Galaga or Space Invaders. But in deference to modern mobile sensibilities, each stage is surprisingly small and everything happens quickly. The unique floor-ceiling setup is ideal for local multiplayer on a single device, and though the visual style isn't exactly original, it's fast enough to be interesting. The game is free with no in-app purchases.

• Challenging, high score chasing single player action against tough AI opponents.

Bad Banker

Bad Banker attempts to fuse the concepts of investment with a board game formula. Players have to move their investments around the board, selling and merging all the time to try and keep a positive balance. Imagine it as a combination of Monopoly and one of those sliding picture puzzles. It's an interesting mix of strategy and spatial awareness, though how much actual fiscal theory it includes I couldn't say. Bad Banker is free with IAP topping out at two dollars.

Logic Traces

Logic Dots landed on Android last year and was well-received by puzzle fans. The developers are back with Logic Traces, a similar idea with a new spin. Each dot on the rectangular grid has an assigned value, and it can fill that number of spaces in any direction (but only one direction at a time). Fill up the grid and clear the stage. The game is free to download, with extra stages and hints unlocked via in-app purchase.

If puzzles are your thing, then Logic Traces is your game. From the makers of Logic Dots, the #1 award winning puzzle-board game with almost a million players, Logic Traces has a brand new puzzle mechanic and hundreds of boards of to solve. Logic Traces is an addictive combination of Sudoku and Minesweeper. Trace lines from numbers placed on the board to cover all the squares. There may be one way to solve the puzzle or five.

Space Warrior: The Origin

Top-down space shooters are equal parts spectacle and challenge, at least when they're done right. And Space Warrior is indeed done right, recalling games like Ikaruga that assault your eyeballs and patience with similar abandon. The 2D gameplay and 3D graphics are paired with tight controls and an upgrade system that offers at least a little choice when taking down the latest screen-filling boss, even if the in-app purchases for currency are a bit steep for my taste.

--

Space Warrior is a thrilling shoot 'em up game with unbelievable visual effects. Experience the world of an alternative future of the Earth and get caught up in a plot of a full-on space saga. It would seem that there is nothing to discover in the Solar System. But in the most remote corners of the Universe mankind has come up against cruel resistance. You are the only one who can save the galaxy from an alien race of invaders.

RPG Antiquia Lost

Another week, another retro-style anime-inspired RPG from Kemco. The hook in this one (aside from old-fashioned graphics and turn-based combat, natch) is that the main character is made out of Dragon Warrior Brand slime, and that you upgrade skills by eating specific gems to gain status changes and power-ups. Like all of Kemco's later RPGs, this one comes in free or paid versions, but both of them have some pretty steep in-app purchases.

--

Bine is a young man who lives in a small rural village. One day, he is asked by Lunaria, a girl who lives near the village, to go with her to the royal capital. With more and more disappearances occurring, the rulers' reactions are mixed. And there is a forgotten existence, too... The heroine is... slime. By eating gems, her statuses are strengthened, and she can learn new skills. In battle, she has a powerful death-blow skill: she can mimic monsters. Special actions, such as smashing rocks or squeezing through narrow gaps, are possible, depending on the character at the head of the party.

Er, 2016. Man, Back to the Future is old. This one is three dollars with no in-app purchases, which is impressive given the art and music that have gone into it.

You can keep the Lovecraftian horrors at bay with lightning and thunder, but once you run out, you're either dead or crazy.

FLYT - A Dashing Adventure!

FLYT is basically Flappy Bird with a zen skin on top. Tap to flap up, release to float down, avoid all the obstacles as they fly by. The swipe-to-dash aspect is at least new, but it's cumbersome - a double-tap option might have been better. And the game isn't quite so punishing thanks to a slow-motion mechanic. If you'd like something more stylish and more forgiving than Flappy Bird, well here it is.

FLYT is an arcade style dash through a sky filled with floating obstacles and high-speed perils. How far can you fly? All you need is to tap & hold to fly. You can even use a quick swipe to dash out of the way. Not that great at these kinds of games? Don't worry, the challenge increases the farther you go. Get too close to an obstacle? FLYT slows down for just a split second so you can make those make or break maneuvers in order to extend your playtime.

BBC Colouring: Doctor Who

Adult coloring books are something that's passed me by, and doubly so for their electronic counterparts. Surely the cerebral appeal of filling in the lines perfectly is somewhat blunted by the fill tool, and I can't imagine that licensed likenesses of Doctor Who actors and sets would make it any better. But hey, if you're a coloring book and/or Doctor Who fan, feel free to disregard my admittedly jaded and joyless opinion.

The game is split up into two parts: one with Diablo-style top-down combat and the other with a base builder not unlike Dungeon Keeper. There is some novelty in the four-player co-op mode, but as with all of these games, whoever shells out the most money on IAP is generally the winner.

Then, take revenge on their fortresses with powerful weapons and smash it to smithereens. Combine forces with up to 3 friends and defeat foes in real-time. Intense multiplayer action and epic battles await when you play with friends. Take full control of your hero and hack all of your enemies to pieces.

Come on, Nerf, at least put lasers or skeletons or something in there - as it is, this is a terrible motivation for exercise compared to, say, Pokémon.

WTF Game(s) Of The Week

BATH WITH DAD simulator 2015

Bath With Dad Simulator 2015 (see developer, that's how capitalization works!) is a pretty shameless copy of Shower With Your Dad Simulator. And though the copy itself is shameless, the game is not, because it gets rid of the one point of novelty in the original: tiny pixelated genitals. Yup, all the dads and boys in Bath With Dad are wearing swimming trunks in the bath for some reason. But if you want to recreate the mildly creepy and super-simple matching gameplay of the Steam title, well here ya go.
