You just experienced a weekend of epic deals, and it's not even close to over yet. There are still all kinds of holiday app sales going on, and then it'll be on to the New Years sales, then the Presidents' Day sales, then the Valentine's Day sales, and so on in that fashion until all the apps are sold.
Gamers of a certain age probably spent at least a few hours (or years) of their lives submerged in the original Double Dragon games. These side-scrolling beat-em-ups have stood the test of time, but emulators are so messy, right? DotEmu, a developer with plenty of experience porting classic games to mobile, has followed through on its promise to bring the Double Dragon Trilogy to Android as a single download.
As the Android gaming landscape grows, there are more than enough role-playing games to keep the enthusiast happy, and lately we've been getting some pretty decent real-time strategy as well. But if you like to mix your genres Reese's style, Armor Games is happy to oblige with the redundantly-titled Warlords RTS: Strategy Game. It's a traditional RTS, like Warcraft, with added RPG elements. Like, uh, World of Warcraft.
If you're an old hat at strategy, you know how this goes: get through the fantasy-themed campaign by cunningly building camps, deploying units, and upgrading your army.
There are many ways to escape the hoards of undead during a zombie apocalypse. Some of the most popular film depictions include cars, planes, and boats. Rarely, if ever, is a motor scooter the chosen means of escape, but that's all you've got to work with in Dead Ahead. It's a quirky endless runner with zombies. What more do you want? Can't you ever just be happy?
The goal is to survive as long as possible while dodging obstacles and mowing down zombies.
Dead Trigger 2 is certainly one of the prettiest shooters on Android, and it also has one of the highest zombie densities of any game on Android. The developers have been pretty serious about adding new content and responding to player suggestions with past updates, and it's the same with today's. Version 0.2.5 has hit Google Play with some cool stuff and insights into the next update.
The land of Estellion is a bit of a mess, but perhaps you can bring it under control in Ravenmark: Mercenaries. It's going to take careful planning and tactical knowhow, but you didn't expect it to be easy, did you? Ravenmark: Mercenaries is a turn-based strategy game with some interesting surprises along the way. Think you have the keen tactical mind for it?
The turn-based element of Ravenmark: Mercenaries is based around two phases – command and battle.
Just in time to help you unwind after a few days with the family, Badland has arrived in Google Play with a ton of free content. This is an atmospheric side-scrolling game that has some action elements along with a little dash of platforming. It's also incredibly pretty.
In Badland you simply press on the screen to make your little fuzz-ball character flap its... wings? It's not entirely clear what this thing is, but it's definitely flying.
