Love You to Bits

Android Police coverage: The critically acclaimed point and click adventure 'Love You to Bits' just landed on Android

Love You to Bits is an awesome point and click adventure game that just made its way to Android after an 8-month wait. And lo and behold, the wait was well worth it. Not only are the graphics exceptional, but the heartwarming story of collecting your loved one's missing body parts is most definitely one of a kind.

PUSH

Android Police coverage: [Hands-on] PUSH, a minimal puzzle game that offers a beautiful and relaxing experience

PUSH is a fun minimal puzzle game where your single objective is to push different buttons in the correct order. What is great about this setup is the fact that there are no timers, no tutorials, heck, there aren't even any boss stages. What you see is what you get, and that is a competent puzzle game that offers a stress free experience.

Game of Thrones: Conquest™

Android Police coverage: Warner Bros. has released 'Game of Thrones: Conquest' worldwide and fans aren't happy

Game of Thrones: Conquest is a clone of the popular Game of War strategy game, and it's not even a good one. Talk about a wasted opportunity on Warner Bros. part. They could have made something exciting and new with the GoT property. Instead, they created this. What can I say, even if you are a die-hard fan of the books and TV show, this release isn't really worth your time.

Westeros is at war. Great houses clash, dragons rule the sky, and the army of the dead threatens the realm.  Live out your fantasy and join the war.  Build your house and raise your army as you navigate a dangerous political landscape.  Based on the award winning HBO series, Game of Thrones: Conquest allows players to become a Lord in Westeros and define a strategy for conquering the Seven Kingdoms. Winter is here and your enemy’s army will not wait to clash swords.

Save the Dodos

Save the Dodos is a simple arcade game that plays a lot like Lemmings or the popular Mario vs Donkey Kong clones. Basically, it is your job to ensure that all of the Dodos get to each stage's goal. By moving around the platforms and obstacles found in each level you can guide the Dodos to safety and avoid their mass extinction.

We’re all familiar with the sad tale of the charming, yet unintelligent Dodo. But now you can prevent their heart-breaking tale of extinction. Guide the dodos through 100 challenging levels and save this avian dullard from extinction. Since Dodos are not all too clever, you won’t be able to directly command them. Our feathery friends would just get confused and they have enough on their plate as is.

ICEY

ICEY is something of an odd game. At first glance, it may look like a classic 2D sidescroller, but once you dig in you will realize that it closely resembles The Stanley Parable. You see, an omnipresent narrator is guiding your every move. The thing is, this narrator may not be truthful with you. So it is up to you to figure out what's really going on.

ICEY is a 2D side-scrolling action game. As you follow the narrator's omnipresent voice, you will see through ICEY's eyes and learn the truth about her world. “Alright, you caught me. This ISN'T really just a simple 2D action game, and you WON'T be seeing through ICEY's eyes... NOR will you learn the truth about her world." says the narrator. “ICEY is a Meta game in disguise.

Wizrogue - Labyrinth of Wizardry

Wizrogue - Labyrinth of Wizardry is a reimagining of the classic RPG series Wizardry as a roguelike. For the most part, it is a tile-based affair that is filled with terrifying monsters and an endless amount of traps. It is your job to make it as far as you can without dying, which truth be told can be pretty tricky. Luckily you can train your characters to ensure that you will make it just a bit further in each playthrough.

Beartopia

Beartopia is strictly a Daydream VR game, but it is an interesting one for sure. Basically, it is a casual village builder that closely resembles Nintendo's Animal Crossing series. You befriend the animals living in a small village in order to help them and the town prosper. All in all, a quality offering for the Daydream platform for an often underrepresented genre.

Pocket Pool

Pocket Pool is just that, a simple game of pool that exists in your pocket. What sets it apart from the majority of pool games on the Play Store is its minimal graphics and level-based gameplay. Instead of playing a whole round of pool, you will make particular shots in pre-defined stages. The more you advance, the harder these shots become.

Short Fused

Short Fused is a simple level-based puzzle game where you must guide your character through each level to collect quite a few different puzzle pieces before your time runs out.

The goal, of course, is to unlock new playable characters, which should provide plenty of replay value.

Swish Ball

Swish Ball is a slick looking pixel-based arcade game that combines basketball with pinball. The way it works is that there are two flippers at the bottom of the screen, and it is your job to hit the falling basketball into the net as many times as possible. There is a 24-second shot clock that counts down during each session, so you better make each shot count.

Darts of Fury

Darts of Fury is a highly polished free-to-play multiplayer darts game. You can compete against live opponents while earning XP that helps you to climb the leaderboards for the possibility to unlock new equipment. This is where the free-to-play aspects come in, as you can easily purchase this equipment outright. Sadly this makes the multiplayer gameplay imbalanced thanks to being able to buy your way into the top ranks through a roundabout method that always involves your money.

Team Z - League of Heroes

Team Z - League of Heroes is your basic hero collection game where you battle against other heroes in a clash to control the world. Just like most hero collection games, you will be able to evolve and fuse your heroes into even more powerful players. If this is your thing, then I say give Team Z - League of Heroes a look, but if you are opposed to free-to-play games that contain a plethora of in-app purchases, I would say this release is just more of the same we have all seen before.

Lunar Battle

Lunar Battle is the latest release from Atari Inc. Sadly it is yet another free-to-play grind fest that interestingly fuses city building with space battles. An odd mix for sure, but the outcome is the same. If you don't enjoy a grind or feel like dumping endless amounts of money into your games, there is nothing new to see here.

Draconius GO: Catch a Dragon!

Draconius GO: Catch a Dragon! is a clear Pokémon GO clone, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad game. For those that live in rural areas, it may actually be a better one, as the monsters are a lot easier to find in unpopulated locales. Really what shapes my opinion on this release is the fact that it has quite a few in-app purchases that range all the way up to $119.99 per item. So it is clear what the developers have focused on. A kids game designed to take advantage of their poorly developed impulse control.

Build your very own collection of winged horses, vampires, unicorns and other magical creatures.

FunFair Coin Pusher

FunFair Coin Pusher is an interesting take on the many arcade games that push coins into a collection tray. The mechanics are quite simple, but the way the game has been monetized is pretty disappointing. As you would expect, this is a free-to-play release rife with in-app purchases. This severely deteriorates the fun you can have with the game, though if you can ignore them, there may be some casual fun to still be had.

You're one well-placed coin away from the mega jackpot, finger twitching nervously as you refine your aim. And BOOM., she's away. Down through the maze of pegs, down past the drop-zone feature and onto the coin bed, nudging the prize toy ever closer. The pusher moves. Nearly. Nearly... There. Over she comes with a whole slew of other coins, prizes and tokens.

Knowledge is Power

Knowledge is Power isn't quite a game, as it is more a tie-in application for Sony's newly published quiz game that goes by the same name. The way it works is you will use your phone or tablet to connect to the PS4 game in order to answer questions in a rapid-fire manner. So unless you own or plan on purchasing the PS4 title, this app will be of no use.

Hidden Agenda is another PS4 tie-in title for their Hidden Agenda console title. This time around you will be connecting your phone or tablet to your PS4 to uncover clues and make decisions that affect the game's overall story.
