Here we are with another week underway and another duo of an app and a game being discounted on the Play Store. This week's titles are Aqualert Premium and Whispering Willows.
The most interesting of the two is the game, Whispering Willows. It's a hand-drawn 2D adventure game originally funded on Kickstarter. You play as Elena who's on a journey in the Willows Mansion to find her missing father and who does so by solving puzzles using her astral projection.
As for Aqualert, it is a water drinking tracker and reminder app that makes it easy to enter how much water you drank and see how many more cups you need to reach your daily goal. Read More
The Humble Mobile Bundle RPGs came out last week, packing 7 great games that total almost $50 on the Play Store. The Bundle has now had 2 new games added to it, and even better, we have 10 free codes to give away.
The new games are in the second tier - the 'pay more than average' one - which currently stands at a price of $5.75. Mage Gauntlet comes from RocketCat games and publisher Noodlecake. It was inspired by classic RPGs games from the 80s and 90s on the Super Nintendo, such as Legend of Zelda: LTTP and Secret of Mana. Read More
We cover a lot of app and game sales here on Android Police. We actually have a really complex system we use to find new sales and check the previous prices before presenting them to you (it's called "checking Appbrain"). But soon you might not need to take our word for it: one of our readers spotted a new visual element on the mobile version of the Play Store highlighting apps on sale directly to users. A similar feature has been in place for movies, TV shows, and books for some time. Read More
I have a weakness for adorable puzzlers. Mix some colorful environments, smart gameplay mechanics, and a cute creature that makes hilarious sounds, and I'm smitten for hours. That said, it's a miracle that I was even able to put my phone down to write this post. Splitter Critters is just kryptonite for me. As Alex and Penny would say, "OMG cute, so cute, supa cute(...) Suh cyuht!"
You're in charge of those small adorable blue critters in Splitter Critters and you need to guide them back to their spaceship. They're alien critters and they seem to be lost, it's just your duty as a human to help them. Read More
Zen Studios is well-known for its pinball games of popular franchises, such as Portal, Marvel, The Walking Dead, and Star Wars. The company is back with another one entry to the series now, themed by game developer Bethesda titles.
The three franchises used here are The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Fallout, and DOOM. I would compare the gameplay on these three pinball tables; however, because of the game's in-app purchases, I have only managed to play the Skyrim one. Which was fun - it reminded me of wasting away hours on the Windows XP pinball game. To play the Fallout or DOOM tables, you either have to pay real money for in-game coins, or earn money on the Skyrim table. Read More
Love is in the air, love is all around me... sorry, that's Love Actually. Either way, it's Valentine's Day soon, and Niantic is getting into the spirit of things, with Pokémon GO having its first in-game event of 2017.
From February 8 to February 15, players will be able to gain double the amount of Candy while catching, hatching, or Read More
dispatching transferring Pokémon, while Buddy Pokémon will be able to find Candy twice as fast as normal for their Trainers. Furthermore, a host of adorable, lovable pink Pokémon, including Chansey, Clefable, and Porygon will have increased spawn rates (everyone say 'aww').

Fire Emblem Heroes
Android Police coverage: Nintendo's first full Android game, Fire Emblem Heroes, is now rolling out to some countries in the Play Store
Here we are: Nintendo's very first full game released on Android. Read More
Fire Emblem and I go way back. I have played many of them, but the one I most fondly remember is Path of Radiance on the Gamecube (the one that introduced Ike). The series is known for its turn-based tactical gameplay with anime-styled characters and common JRPG story elements. Nintendo has done a good job at promoting the series throughout its lifetime, especially when it comes to the 3DS releases, and inspiring loyal fans to pick up the latest title. I am not ashamed to note that I am in that demographic. So when Fire Emblem Heroes was announced, you can bet that I got damn excited. Read More
What would another week be without two price drops on a game and an app in the Play Store? And this week's selection is interesting, if maybe not as popular among the geek crowd as last week's Twilight Pro.
The app is Weather 14 Days Pro and guess what it does... Weather, yeah, I know, mind-blowing. It's the official app for theweather.com's website and has detailed hourly forecasts for 14 days in over 250000 locations in the world. The app has widgets, notifications, maps, radars, satellites, and a nice Material Design aesthetic. Read More
We've not had a Humble Mobile Bundle since November, so it looks like it's time for another one. In this bundle are RPGs, including a Star Wars title and two Shadowrun games.
Paying more than $1 will net you three games; Symphony of Eternity, Doom of Destiny, and Evoland. The first, Symphony of Eternity, is an anime fantasy role-playing adventure, which has the classic top-down, pixel art approach. It's $3.99 on the Play Store, so... yeah. Doom of Destiny (these titles are like some awful self-published fantasy series) is described as the 'nerdiest adventure of your life' on the Play Store. Read More
