[Deal Alert] Thomas Was Alone Is Down To $0.20 In Many Countries ($0.99 Globally)

Thomas Was Alone isn't your typical platformer. The game immerses you in its world and forges an emotional bond between you and a rectangle. Yes, a rectangle. As you take charge of the different colorful geometric shapes inside the game, you embark on a journey through more than 100 levels (with 20 levels from the Benjamin's Flight expansion) that's beautifully narrated and deeply sentimental.

When Thomas Was Alone first launched on Android in 2014, it cost about $3.99, but the game has had its price dip on and off since then. Today sees one of its lowest discounts ever, with the price falling to $0.20 in the US.

Ubisoft's Limbless Wonder Returns In Rayman Adventures, With More Conventional Platformer Gameplay And A Ton Of IAP

The last two Rayman games to grace Android, Rayman Jungle Run and Rayman Fiesta Run, are some of the best examples of the genre on the Play Store. Now the developers are branching out by bringing Rayman back to his platforming roots. The third game in the series, Rayman Adventures, allows for more direct control of the 2D characters as they run around the screen. That makes stages bigger and less linear, encouraging players to explore every nook and cranny. You know, like an adventure.

At the moment pixelated faux-retro graphics are all the rage, partly because they're trendy, partly because they don't require lots of hardware resources to implement, and (let's be honest) partly because they're easier for developers to create than high-resolution 2D sprites. So occasionally it's nice to see a game like In Between, which bucks the trend with both characters and backgrounds that are completely unique and drawn by hand. Check out the trailer below to see what I mean:

Stylish Platform-Puzzle Game Contrast Arrives On The SHIELD Android TV For $15

These days it's rare to see a game praised for graphics alone - with incredibly powerful hardware available on consoles, PCs, and yes, mobile hardware, it's more about what you can do with what you have.
