Developer Headup Games welcomes players to journey through the peculiar world of Asposia in its newly released point-and-click adventure game, The Inner World. With hand-drawn graphics (presented in non-stereoscopic 2D), humorous voice-overs, and an over-abundance of charm, this game looks posed to deliver all the warm fuzzies a mobile gamer can handle (maybe even a little more). After winning high praises over on Apple's mobile platform, it's time for Android fans to get to experience this amusement firsthand.

Four months ago, part one of the Kickstarter-funded fifth installment of the Broken Sword series hit the Play Store costing $6.99. It has since dropped to $4.99, and today part two of the saga is available for one dollar more, a reasonable $5.99. Okay, now that the math is out of the way, let's recap. Broken Sword is a long-running adventure series (the 5 in the name may have given that away) that has been picking up fans since 1996, and given the success the franchise found on Kickstarter, clearly many of them have stuck around.

Nancy-Thumb

Developer Her Interactive and Nancy Drew have a long relationship that will, by the end of this month, span thirty PC games (and some Mac) over the course of roughly fifteen years. These point-and-click adventure titles are standard fare for fans of the genre, containing puzzles, mysteries, and an engaging plot. Now one has made its way to Android, Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton." This isn't the first game in the main series (yes, the company has more than one Nancy Drew series), nor the second, nor the third.

DotEmu has made a habit out of bringing beloved retro games to the Play Store in adaptations that are both faithful and technically excellent. The latest game to get their treatment is Gobliiins, a series of point-and-click adventure games that graced various platforms in the early 1990s. As they did before with the Double Dragon series, DotEmu has packaged three games together for $2.99.

Gobliiins is half story, half puzzle, tasking the player with controlling multiple goblin characters who have different skills and abilities.

If you've ever donated to a Kickstarter campaign, you might have noticed that they tend to have a few delays. And by that I mean assume that there will be delays - just ask anyone who waited for Star Command. Detective Grimoire is in a similar position, coming to Android almost a year and a half after its "estimated delivery," but it looks like the wait has been worth it.

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.

I don't think much of silent films, but I tend to melt when I come across a game that successfully conveys a plot without the use of speech. Each stage in Tiny Thief feels like a short skit, much like a single clip of Looney Tunes or Tom and Jerry, only with a feeling of continuity as you progress from one to the next. It has the look and feel of a mobile game, and it's immensely easy to pick up and play, but there's a surprising degree of depth here and an undeniable degree of love and care holding it all together.
