If you're like us, you have an obsession with new apps. When you try every new app you come across though, you're bound for disappointment. After all, not every app can be a paragon of functionality, style, and convenience. With that in mind, we go through the long list of new apps submitted to the Play Store every couple of weeks and bring you the best. Even that, though, can be a little too much to digest for some users. For that reason, we've got monthly roundups featuring just a handful of the very very best apps and games from the previous month.
After taking a closer look at our top five favorite apps from June, it only seemed right to follow up with another roundup of our top favorites in the game category. Unable to settle on just five games for this roundup, we decided to include six of June's best entries into the Play Store. Of course, there were a ton of worthy competitors for the top six spots, so choosing wasn't easy, but here are our favorites:
First up is Project 83113, a cute sidescrolling platformer from NCsoft. The game challenges players to "bring an end to the reign of the machine" by jumping, bouncing, and shooting through four unique worlds.
With the arrival of a new monthly roundup of apps comes a roundup of our six favorite games. May 2012 saw the addition of a slew of worthy games to the Play Store, but naturally a few stood out above the rest. In this roundup, we'll briefly discuss what we consider to be the top six games released in May of 2012.
Machinarium, which we both announced and reviewed last month, was a no-brainer for inclusion in the monthly game roundup. Though it's only (really) compatible with tablets, this game is positively brilliant for a number of reasons. The game follows the story of Josef, a robot who must venture past the scrap heap to save his robot girlfriend in the city.
Gameloft - the makers of Asphalt, BackStab, and a boatload of other popular Android games - rode into the Google Play Store today with Six-Guns, bringing a Red Dead Redemption-esque shooter to players everywhere.
Following the story of Buck Crosshaw, an outlaw who is presumed dead, Six-Guns allows players to ride through an "open world" set in Arizona and Oregon, fighting off other outlaws as well as vampires and "many other unnatural foes," stirred by a mysterious ancient force.
Six-Guns offers 40 missions, each with a unique set of challenges, taking players across thoughtfully crafted environments and introducing numerous waves of enemies to fight through.
