[New Game] Mosaique Is A Minimalist Puzzle Game With Simple Strategic Play

Mosaique fits the bill with its unique take on mobile gaming. Rather than pile on endless levels, this title only has seven of them. Each time you play, the challenge is to make it through all seven as efficiently as possible.

Wind-Up Knight was one of the first truly great platformers on Android, and now developer Robot Invader is taking on puzzles with a new game called Rise of the Blobs. It's a little bit like a fusion of Tetris and Collapse, but with food. It is up to you to hold off the ever expanding army of blobs as they seek to (presumably) consume your marshmallow hero. I mean, you almost can't blame them – he looks so tasty.

I'm not usually in favor of leveraging the name of a long-dead and respected scientist to sell an app, but for Namco I can make an exception. Isaac Newton’s Gravity 2 is the newest physics-based puzzle game on Android, and you can try it out for free.

[New Game] Quantro Is Like Playing Two Games Of Interlocking Tetris At Once, Turns Your Brain To Mush

If you've ever felt like puzzle games are just too easy, have I ever got the game for you. Quantro follows a familiar gaming trope pioneered by Tetris decades ago. Blocks fall from the top of the screen and you line them up into rows to clear them. Easy, right? Quantro makes it interesting by confronting you with two overlapping games simultaneously.

The two games are color-coded, with the red blocks in front and the blue ones behind.

[Review] Wiz Kid Jr. Brings Some Magic Gameplay To An Otherwise Tired Genre

I'm going to make this clear from the get-go: I'm a big fan of puzzle games. However, I'm not a fan of when developers think that throwing a new coat of paint onto an old concept constitutes something praise-worthy.

[Review] Naval Clash Blows The Original 'Battleship' Out Of The Water, Brings Smooth Multiplayer Gameplay to Android

 In my youth, one of the games I hated most was Battleship - it was simply too slow for my liking. Spending what seemed like ages trying to seek out hits in a sea of misses only served to bore me out of my mind.

However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Naval Clash eliminated most of my hate towards the game. At its core, it's a rendition of Battleship that allows you to play against a CPU, friends over Bluetooth, or other players over Naval Battle's multiplayer service.
