Rovio's newest game is about what the Finnish developer knows best – birds. Though, they seem decidedly less angry this time in their little downhill race carts. Like it or not, this game is going to be huge.

Angry Birds Go is Rovio's first major free-to-play game on Android, so expect to be hit up for cash on occasion (maybe a lot of it). This is a casual racing game built around a variety of quirky downhill tracks.

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.

The basic gameplay is a bit like Bejeweled with a turn-based strategy component. You play through various episodes and take on bad guys from the show – it almost goes without saying, but don't blink.

The Anomaly games are a really good time – even the preview build of Anomaly 2 we got to take a look at a few weeks ago was already excellent. Now the game has been fully optimized for Android and it's in the Play Store for your alien-blasting pleasure.

Anomaly 2 has the same reverse tower defense gameplay as the first two games, but now you've got some cool new vehicles that can transform.

This game invites you to design and control your own custom war machine and fight your way through 80 top-down missions of increasing difficulty. Fighting computers not doing it for you? There's multiplayer too.

Tank Battles doesn't take a photo-realistic approach to the whole military warfare thing – it's a bit wacky and over-the-top.
