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 fun top-down arcade racer, a unique sci-fi strategy digging game, a deeply detailed horror puzzler, a competent clone of Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer, a dynamic martial art themed MMO, and a minimal number-based puzzle game. Without further ado:

Stunt Wheels Party!

First things first, Stunt Wheels Party is only for the NVidia Shield TV currently. While that may change in the future, the release is pretty limited for now. Those of you that do own a Shield, well you are in luck. This is actually a pretty solid top-down racer reminiscent of titles such as Micro Machines, where you race your car through obstacle-laden tracks. There is also a weapon component to the game, where you pick up different weapons on the track in order to shoot your fellow racers. The game itself only costs $3.99 and there are no in-app purchases or advertisements to be found. To me this all adds up to a great pickup for those that own a Shield TV device.

Yes. The Magnificent Stunts are back and this time they're racing around the backlots and studios of Stuntwood. Battle to destroy your dastardly stunt rivals; Stunt Guy, Stunt Gail, Mucus, Danger-Susan and Nurse Long... and watch out for oil slicks, TNT and squirrels as you race masses of different cars through beached pirate ships, backflip over huge canyons, barrel-roll through rings of fire and smash your way through the competition with the crazy power ups including: - purple-hot Laser Wang, crushing Monsta Mode, tommy-gun wielding Mob Mode and the almost useless Mole Mode… then do it all again to your friends in split screen multiplayer Party Play.

 

Deep Town: Mining Factory

Deep Town is an interesting title that mixes a few different genres together into one. There are elements of idle tapping games as well as a good bit of strategy factory building. What is unique is how these genres are mixed together. Your goal is to dig as deep as you can, mining minerals that can then be used to upgrade your mining equipment. This needs to be carried out with careful planning, as some equipment is more helpful than others. The game does contain advertisements as well as in-app purchases that range up to $99.99. So this is more something that you would play passively but works well as a time waster that requires a bit of thinking and strategy.
