Little Briar Rose offers a Grimm adventure with gorgeous stained glass visuals

On paper, Little Briar Rose isn't anything particularly exciting. It's a competent side-scrolling adventure title, a rookie effort from developer Elf Games, that retells the Grimm fairy tale of the same name. But the game's visuals, painstakingly crafted to look like an animated stained glass window on every frame, are downright breathtaking. In a sea of pixelated graphics and safe me-too styles, Little Briar Rose is a breath of fresh air.

[Super Deal Alert] Dreamy puzzler Lost Journey is heavily discounted worldwide to 10 cents and less (Bonus: Noisly app discount)

10 cents can go a long way these days on the Play Store. In recent times, you've been able to grab some cool games and apps for this sum — maybe a bit more or a bit less depending on your country — but the discounts have been heavily skewing toward select regions: UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia, Russia, and sometimes the US and Canada and a few other countries joined in on the fun.

This deal though seems to be better in every way. One, it appears to be worldwide: I've checked dozens of countries around the world and they're all showing the game as discounted.

There is quite the selection available in the Play Store, and now you can add one more to that list. Peter Moorhead's Murder has made its way to our mobile platform of choice.

Hand-Drawn Adventure Game 'Whispering Willows' Comes To Android With A 50% Off Launch Price Until September 9th

Whispering Willows is the kind of game we'd like to see more of on any platform. The art style alone shows how much care and attention the designers approached the game with. That it happens to be fun is almost a perk.

The hand-drawn experience centers on Elena, a girl who can project her spirit outside of her body. Controlling her astral projection to solve puzzles forms the crux of the gameplay.

Foursaken Media's 'Phantom Rift' Is A Mega Man Battle Network-Inspired Adventure With Hundreds Of Spells And Loot Galore

Phantom Rift is the latest game from Foursaken Media, and once again the developer has shown that it knows how to deliver attractive mobile experiences. Following the likes of Monster Adventures, Heroes and Castles, and Bug Heroes 2, Phantom Rift serves as another example of attractive 3D fun. This time around we're looking at a role-playing game inspired by the Mega Man Battle Network series of games that originally appeared on the Game Boy Advance.

In Phantom Rift (and MMBN before it), battles take place on a 6 x 3 grid. The system mixes in elements from card battle games, and in this case, players build a deck of spells that determines which actions they may take in battle.

[New Game] Headup Games' Hand-Drawn Adventure 'The Inner World' Provides All The Warm Fuzzies You Can Fit Inside $4.99

Developer Headup Games welcomes players to journey through the peculiar world of Asposia in its newly released point-and-click adventure game, The Inner World. With hand-drawn graphics (presented in non-stereoscopic 2D), humorous voice-overs, and an over-abundance of charm, this game looks posed to deliver all the warm fuzzies a mobile gamer can handle (maybe even a little more). After winning high praises over on Apple's mobile platform, it's time for Android fans to get to experience this amusement firsthand.

The world of Asposia is a massive hollow space surrounded, deliberately unbelivably, by an infinite expanse of earth. People are able to breathe thanks to the air that comes from three wind fountains, but as these start failing one after another, we suddenly have cause for adventure and enough justification to sustain a game.

[New Game] Broken Sword 5: Episode 2 Continues The Story Of The Serpent's Curse

Four months ago, part one of the Kickstarter-funded fifth installment of the Broken Sword series hit the Play Store costing $6.99. It has since dropped to $4.99, and today part two of the saga is available for one dollar more, a reasonable $5.99. Okay, now that the math is out of the way, let's recap. Broken Sword is a long-running adventure series (the 5 in the name may have given that away) that has been picking up fans since 1996, and given the success the franchise found on Kickstarter, clearly many of them have stuck around.

These most recent installments bring many improvements, including visuals that really are a treat.

[New Game] Unearthed: Trail Of Ibn Battuta Is An Action Game That Wants To Be Uncharted When It Grows Up

Gamers who've been living under a priceless hand-carved ancient monolith might not know about Uncharted, a series of PlayStation-exclusive action adventure games that have sold tens of millions of copies across three titles. The odds of us getting an Android port of Uncharted are somewhere between slim and none. But you can get a shameless copy of Uncharted-style gaming with Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta, available now on the Play Store.

If Unearthed is a copy, it comes by it honestly, since both it and its source material are treading in familiar fedora and whip territory. (The trailer above even includes an ancient temple with giant rolling stone balls.
