Tower Fortress

Tower Fortress is an action platformer that tasks you with the simple goal of climbing a tower. The thing is, you will not reach the top in your first run, nor your 10th. It will take a lot of time to build up your character after each death in order to level up enough strength to take on the numerous enemies found within.

Rez Infinite

Rez Infinite is one of the games I have been waiting for ages to see released on Android. The thing is this on-rails shooter release is kind of bittersweet thanks to this version of Rez Infinite existing as a VR only title intended to be played on Daydream compatible devices. While it's still great to see that the game is available, I really wish we could get a regular version that doesn't require a VR headset.

Flight

Flight is a simple game where you want to throw a paper plane as far as you can. This is, of course, easier said than done, but that's what keeps the gameplay challenging. Basically, this used to be a web-based game that has only recently been ported to Android. So while the experience is a little thin, the gameplay can be great for a few rounds of play while waiting for something better to do.

SkidStorm

SkidStorm is a top-down racer that has you drifting around corners like a madman. There is a single player mode for those that do not enjoy multiplayer gameplay, though I think it is fair to say that the core focus of this title is the fact that you can race against other players online. Luckily the in-app purchases do not appear to be too egregious, so you may actually find a fair multiplayer experience within.

WTF Game Of The Week

Virtual Sister Family Simulator

Virtual Sister Family Simulator is such a ridiculous concept for a game I just had to include as this week's WTF listing. I mean sure, this is yet another release from some Russian or Chinese mobile game farm that only uses basic assets, but why in the world did they choose this particular theme? I suppose there are some keywords that are supposed to attract some type of customer, but for the life of me I can't figure out who that would be.
