What's that? Minecraft? Oh goodness, no. That's iLands, which is totally different. It's insanely popular on Facebook with over one million active players and over 100k Likes. Yeah, I'm as shocked as you, but now it's on Android too.
Throwing fish doesn't usually come up much as a game mechanic, but that's essentially the entire premise in Fish Out Of Water from Halfbrick Studios. You might remember Halfbrick as the developer behind Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride, but now it has moved on to fish. All you have to do is throw fish across the screen, but it's strangely addictive.
It wasn't supposed to drop until tomorrow, but Leo's Fortune has just gone live in the Play Store. In case you missed the review today, this is a fantastic action platformer with some clever puzzles and amazing graphics. Oh, and no in-app purchases.
You probably know Team17 as the game developer behind the massively popular Worms franchise. That's not all Team17 has ever done, though. Back in 1993 it produced a much lauded platformer in the vein of Sonic or Mario Bros. called Superfrog. It was overshadowed by Worms, which came out in 1995, but fans of the miraculous amphibian will be happy to know the game is back.
Superfrog includes 24 levels (plus boss battles) across six different worlds as you try to save the princess from the (allegedly) evil witch.
Button-mashing beat 'em up games aren't super-common on mobile devices because there aren't really buttons to mash. Fightback makes it work by translating a flurry of taps and swipes into punches and kicks. Are there bad guys on the screen? Yes? Just tap all the things. It seemed to work pretty well on iOS, where Fightback was rather popular.
Puzzles? Check. Cool graphics? Check. Ambient piano background music? Double check. I'm not sure what else you could want out of Lost Toys to have a good time with it. This title invites you to fix some old, broken toys by spinning and flipping the pieces on your screen. It looks amazing, but it's currently showing up as tablet-only.
SoulCraft 2, as the name implies, is the sequel to the popular original SoulCraft. These are pretty standard action RPGs, but instead of wizards and orcs, there are angels and demons. Well, there are also in-app purchases, which are the real demons.
The zombie apocalypse isn't over yet, and the way it unfolds is entirely up to you in season two of The Walking Dead from Telltale Games. This sequel was launched on Amazon's Appstore a few weeks ago, but now it's in the Play Store, which most of you probably prefer. Hey, it's better than last time when it took three months to make the trip over to Google land.
