Video games make a lot of assumptions about aliens, mainly that they're going to be two-dimensional and prone to shooting at stuff. It's an unfair stereotype, if you ask me, but also makes for a better game. That's very much the case in Super Crossfire which packs a ton of alien-blasting action. Yay for stereotypes.

This game includes 150 waves of glowing alien craft with another 150 that can be unlocked later.

Kingdom Rush made a splash when it arrived on Android a few months ago, but there was still a sequel waiting in the wings. At long last, Kingdom Rush Frontiers has set up shop in Google Play. This game has more towers, monsters, and heroes than the original, along with hours of gameplay.

The world of Shadowrun was created 25 years ago as a tabletop RPG setting, and it certainly had its fans. When Jordan Weisman, one of the original creators of Shadowrun wanted to make it into a proper video game, the internet was more than happy to get involved. The Kickstarter campaign pulled in $1.8 million and now the end result is finally available on an Android tablet near you.

Shadowrun Returns is a traditional turn-based RPG with touch-optimized controls.

It's very hard for a game developer to strike the right balance between rewardingly difficult and so frustrating as to be unplayable. Pivvot walks a fine line, but manages to be mind-bendingly difficult and still somehow incredibly fun. All you have to do is guide an orb along the track and avoid obstacles by pivoting clockwise and counter-clockwise. Yeah, that doesn't sound challenging, but it really is.

The orb hangs out at the end of a fixed tether, which you can swing in either direction.

Yes, Angry Birds is back again. This time the sequel to the surprisingly fun Angry Birds Star Wars has dropped out of Hyperspace right in the middle of the Play Store. Angry Birds Star Wars II is based on the prequel films – you know, the ones that your inner child refuses to acknowledge.

There are over 30 playable characters in Angry Birds Star Wars II. Everyone from Mace Windu to Queen Amidala (for some reason) is included in the game this time.

Oh, not another physics puzzler. What is it this time? Bridge building? Water? Birds?! It's more upset birds, isn't it? No, this is something... different. Incredipede is a game with a simple premise – get the fruit and get to the exit. The way you get there is bizarre and interesting, and sometimes strangely beautiful. In each stage, the Incredipede transforms itself into a new organism to cope with the challenges presented by the level.

That beloved sandbox indie hit Terraria has reached Android, and it won't cost you a cent to try it out. Terraria is a game in the same vein as Minecraft – you dig, explore, fight, and build. Each world in Terraria is unique, and now you can build one on most any Android device.

Bravoman is a side-scrolling action platformer based on the original Japanese arcade game from the late 80's. The thing about this game you need to know is that you can totally tell it is based on an 80's Japanese arcade game, but not in a bad way. It's just really weird.

The only real power you have as Bravoman is to stretch your arms out and punch things, which is pretty cool, I guess.

The year was 1993. A young President Clinton was embarking on what was sure to be a scandal-free presidency, Whitney Houston was topping the charts with nothing but fame and fortune in front of her, and Simon the Sorcerer was released on Amiga and MS-DOS. You could say this game has had more lingering appeal than a lot of things from 1993, and now it's available on Android in celebration of its 20th anniversary.
