Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney − Spirit of Justice was recently released on Android by Capcom. It is the latest entry in the Ace Attorney courtroom visual novel series of games, and a port of the original 3DS version. Luckily the controls work well, thanks to most of them being designed for play on a touchscreen. You can expect at least 35 hours of gameplay and reviews have been overly positive.

Another Lost Phone: Laura's Story

Android Police coverage: Accidental Queens' 'A Normal Lost Phone' was an awesome game, and now there's a sequel

Another Lost Phone is the sequel to Accidental Queens' first Lost Phone title. It is a more polished release than the original, but it still contains all of the phone searching mechanics that made the first so memorable. Mainly you dig through a virtual representation of someone's lost phone, and it is your job to try and identify them in order to return the device. While many developers have followed this unique design, Accidental Queens has been one of the few to make the experience memorable.

Monetization: $3.49 / no ads / no IAPs

Another Lost Phone is a game about exploring the social life of a young woman whose phone you have just found. This game is shaped as a narrative investigation: you have to link elements from the different applications, messages and pictures to progress. Scrolling through the phone’s content, you will find out about Laura’s life: her friendships, her professional life and the events that led to her mysterious disappearance and the loss of this phone.

Pokémon Playhouse

Android Police coverage: Pokémon Playhouse is an all-new Pokémon game for young children, and it's completely free to play

Pokémon Playhouse is the latest game from The Pokémon Company. While it is not a mainline Pokémon release, it is an exploration game designed for children between the ages of 3-5. Considering that a friendly human character narrates the entirety of this title, there is absolutely no requirement for your child to have any reading or math skills. This makes it a great starting point in the franchise for the impatient fans who are just not quite ready to take on the enormous amount of text found in the main Pokémon games.

Monetization: free / no ads / no IAPs

In Pokémon Playhouse, your child can interact with all kinds of cute Pokémon as they explore various locations, including a tower, lounge, and outdoor playground. Every location within Pokémon Playhouse features activities created just for younger Pokémon fans, such as taking care of Pokémon in the Pokémon Grooming activity, or identifying Pokémon in the night sky in the Search the Stars activity.

Terra Battle 2

Android Police coverage: Final Fantasy creator Sakaguchi has released his newest game 'Terra Battle2,' but you can't play it until 11:00 PM PST

Terra Battle 2 is the long-awaited sequel to Hironobu Sakaguchi's popular tile-based RPG Terra Battle. Sadly it does not appear that the wait was worth it. Not only are the controls absolutely atrocious in the outer world map, but the long loading times in between rounds make the game almost unbearable to play. If those problems were not enough of a sign that this release was a rushed effort, the convoluted menu system that is never once explained to the player makes for a game whose basic mechanics are an incredible chore to figure out.

Monetization: free / no ads / IAPs from $0.99 - $79.99

Terra Battle 2 brings a completely different game-play experience, while preserving the highly-praised core battle mechanics in a fantastic epic RPG. The new world map lets players travel alongside their companions and allows for more strategic gameplay as you set up your formation before entering a battle. The countless encounters and farewells throughout the course of your heroes’ journey promise to be even more emotional and intense than ever before.

Teon - No pay-to-win ARPG

Teon - No pay-to-win ARPG bills itself as just that, an action RPG that does not contain any pay-to-win mechanics. Considering that the only in-app purchase is a $9.99 recurring monthly fee, it aligns itself with the monetization used by many traditional MMOs. While you can play for free, the areas you can play in will be limited, but at least this gives you a way to try the game out in order to see if you enjoy it.

Monetization: free / no ads / IAPs $9.99 a piece

Teon, God of Creation, created Edin and all beings. The powerful Giants enslaved the other races, but Humans fought back. King Arthur, leader of knights, finally became the master of Edin.

Toca Life: Office

Toca Boca has consistently released quality games for children, and their latest release of Toca Life: Office is no different. Not only is it a premium release, but the imaginative gameplay where your child can play out their fantasies of working like an adult is spot-on. You can expect 6 different locations to explore as well as 35 unique characters to interact with. This means you can expect plenty of content for the low asking price.

Splash and Bubbles Ocean Adventure

Toca Boca isn't the only quality kid's game developer as PBS KIDS has also published a ton of entertaining children's game in their own right. That is why I was happy to see Splash and Bubbles Ocean Adventure, a game designed around the license of Jim Henson's animated TV series Splash and Bubbles. The gameplay is a mix of collection aspects and base decorating, all with a plethora of marine life facts sprinkled throughout.

Tribal Raft: A Far Ride is a completely free to play endless runner with some great graphics. The controls are easy to grasp, and the gameplay is fun and light. While your only objective is to gain the highest score, that doesn't mean there isn't plenty of fun to be had with this generous release.

Wrecker's Revenge - Gumball

Wrecker's Revenge - Gumball is an enjoyable platformer that reminds me a lot of the PS Vita game Gravity Rush. You fly from platform to platform trying to traverse the anti-gravity landscape in order to complete certain objectives. While the gameplay is nowhere as deep as its inspiration, it does prove to be a fun experience all the same.

If you enjoy arcade racing games created in the style of Out Run or Daytona USA, then you should be pleased with the recent release of Raceway Heat.

Flat Pack is a charming platformer that has you traversing 2D environments stretched out over 3D blocks. Not only does this add a very original look and mechanic to the game, but it works a lot better than you would expect. While the controls can be a bit unwieldy at times, for the most part, they work about as well as you can expect of a touchscreen platformer.

Mayhem - PvP Multiplayer Arena Shooter

Mayhem - PvP Multiplayer Arena Shooter is a 2D team-based multiplayer shooter that delivers some fun gameplay. Sadly the ever-present in-app purchases and the perks they gain you are an easy way for many players to get a leg up. If you plan on playing for free, then you may want to settle in for a long grind until you can compete adequately.

Monetization: free / no ads / IAPs from $0.99 - $99.99

Mayhem is a furiously fun, crushingly competitive team multiplayer action game that combines the visceral thrill of twitch-based action with cutting edge real-time PvP multiplayer. Assemble your squad of deadly mercs, master an arsenal of lethal weapons, and climb the ranks through action packed battles against players from around the world. NOTE - A network connection is required to play the game.

ExoGears2

Fans of Sega's Virtual On series will want to take a close look at ExoGears2: Robots Combat Arena. Everything about the game exudes a style that is clear in its inspiration. Sure, the game has a ton of in-app purchases, and it is clearly a free-to-play title, but the nostalgia is hard to ignore. Sadly the matchmaking is pretty dumb, which makes a lot of multiplayer battles early on pretty difficult.

World of Prandis

World of Prandis is your typical Asian MMORPG. That means there are plenty of in-app purchases and a plethora of mistranslations. The art style is somewhat pleasing, though a little bland. Sadly the story is uninspired, and the controls are a bit cumbersome when things get a bit hectic.
