Not that many years ago, cell phones didn't have fancy color touchscreens, fast processors, or ample storage. In those days, we were thankful we had Snake to pass the time (snow, barefoot, uphill both ways, etc.). While the technology has improved, there is still something alluring about that classic game, and Nimble Quest looks to capitalize on it. In this game, you lead a column of heroes against endless swarms of enemies.
Like all red-blooded American males, I spend my days sitting around thinking, "Man, I sure wish I could play a button-masher fighting game on my phone staring the one and only Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson." Today my prayers were answered in a totally extreme way. WWE has released Rockpocalypse, with The Rock himself punching and kicking his way through 18 levels of pain. Did I mention it's extreme? EXTREME!
This isn't a wrestling game, despite being published by WWE.
We all have a deep-seated desire to smash things – a love of destruction, if you will. Don't bother denying it. Well, there are plenty of things to destroy in Catapult King, a game that made quite an impact on iOS. This is a physics game that invites you to knock down all manner of structures with a magical catapult.
You can think of Catapult King as a more advanced version of Crush the Castle.
Order & Chaos is Gameloft's fantasy-themed MMORPG franchise, but the French developer's newest title in the series is a bit of a departure. Order & Chaos Duels is a card game in the spirit of Magic, but with simplified rules. It has an offline campaign mode, as well as online PvP play.
Order & Chaos Duels has over 250 cards to collect. Some of them are common, and you might come across them as random drops.
When you're a space marine, getting captured by aliens is a real drag. You don't get to shoot stuff and you have to slave away in the anathema mines! In Dynamite Jack, you get to bust out of the mines with just a flashlight and an ample supply of bombs. This is a top-down 2D action game, but there's a prominent stealth component that looks very cool.
There are 28 official levels to complete in Dynamite Jack filled with guards, robots, and other hazards.
That's not just any rabbit with a samurai sword on your Android device. That's Usagi Yojimbo from the classic comic book series created by Stan Sakai and currently published by Dark Horse Comics. Now you can finally step into Usagi Yojimbo's sandals and fight your way through 13 levels of comic book-style action.
Way of the Ronin is a 2D side-scrolling beat-'em-up infused with the unique style of the Usagi Yojimbo comics.
Imagine combining Angry Birds, Final Fantasy Tactics, SpongeBob SquarePants, westerns, and so much more in a single game. I'm not sure if there is a better way to describe Squids Wild West by The Game Bakers, but it's pretty darn fun.
Squids Wild West picks up where the original SQUIDS left off. The sea is being corrupted by a black ooze that threatens to destroy the lives of our quirky underwater heroes.
Wild West stories are alright, but you can only rob so many stagecoaches before things become boring. Developer Kerosene Games is refreshing this classic trope by adding a little horror and steampunk to the mix in Bladeslinger. This game is finally available on Android, but most devices aren't supported yet.
Bladeslinger is the masterfully-told story of general-purpose badass William Glaston. After returning to his home town of Hammer's Peak, he finds the place overrun with demons and monsters.
What happens in the unlikely event that a shark falls in love with a space dog? Clearly, the shark will follow the dog into space, because blast your logic! If Astro Shark is going to be reunited with Laika the space dog, he's going to have to dodge some missiles and travel the stars. Romantic, no?
Astro Shark is a physics-fueled adventure game that involves hopping from one planet to the next to gain speed and evade missiles.
Everyone's favorite game studio, Electronic Arts, has released the third incarnation of its "hyper-realistic" racing series. Real Racing 3 is in the Play Store, but appears to be available only in certain countries right now. The North American listing isn't working for us, but the international version appears to be functional for at least some folks. Although, considering the bizarre new in-app purchase upsell, maybe you're not missing much.
The Real Racing series makes its name by licensing dozens of authentic cars.
