No Gravity Lite - Space Combat Adventure

No Gravity Lite - Space Combat Adventure is a new free release for an older paid version that has been on the Play Store since 2011. I am assuming that this free version has been created to allow people an easy way to experience the gameplay without needing to purchase anything. Luckily there is a full game unlock included with this release, so you will not need to bother with the older version if you do decide you want to purchase the entire experience.

Monetization: free / no ads / IAPs $2.49 a piece

Are you brave enough to play No Gravity? You’ll need steady nerves and a strong heart to fly around dangerous obstacles, face hostile environments and use deadly weapons to accomplish your missions and protect your people. In a distant future, spread across thousands of colonies, the empire is under attack from a mysterious, unknown sickness that is affecting people’s minds. So far, you’ve been able to remain healthy but you don’t know for how much longer.

Food Conga

Food Conga is a casual arcade game where you collect food items in a conga line in order to deliver them to customers. When you complete an order you move on to the next stage, where you will inevitably create yet another conga line of food. Of course you will need to avoid enemies while collecting your food, because if you get hit you will die. This gives Food Conga a good bit of challenge to the gameplay, which should keep players coming back for more.

Fist of Fury

Now I could have sworn I had seen this game before. Maybe it is being re-released, or maybe my memory is worse than I thought. From what I do recall, Fist of Fury has you attacking enemies coming at you from four separate directions. It is your job to tap on the screen when they get close, all in order to defeat them one after another. If even one gets through your defenses, then it's game over.

Color Merge

Imagine playing with a flat version of a Rubik's Cube, and you should get an idea of what to expect out of Color Merge. The idea is that you want each board to contain dots of the exact same color. You do this by combining dots of particular colors in order to change the coloring of all adjacent dots. Of course, this is something that is always more difficult than it sounds, which is why Color Merge makes such a great puzzle game.

Color Merge is a simple yet deceptively challenging color based combination puzzle.

iHUGU

iHUGU is a game about hugging. As odd as that sounds, the game mechanic of memorizing whom you have hugged in order to skip them works quite well. So sure, this is a casual game at best, but what better way to deliver a game with a positive message than through casual gameplay?

Monstergotchi

Monstergotchi is a monster filled RPG where you want to level up your monster through numerous quests to then wreak havoc on other real world players through PvP battling. Basically, you grind and grind to then see if you have what it takes to combat other people. If not, then it's back to grinding. While I have to admit that Monstergotchi has a pleasant presentation, the monster leveling mechanic sounds pretty hum drum for the most part.

Gummy Heroes

Gummy Heroes reminds me a lot of Badland, what with the monotone foreground and constant barrage of obstacles thrown in your way. Gummy Heroes even plays quite a lot like Badland, but with a simple twist. You need to collect as many gummy heroes as you can while platforming. Of course, the downside of having a bunch of gummy heroes following behind you is the fact that they can run into the many obstacles scattered throughout each level, thus lowering the number of heroes you have collected.

War Wings

War Wings is a pretty great looking WWII dogfighting game where you pilot a plethora of craft from that era. What is great about this setup, is that the dogfighting takes place online against other players. What is worrying is that this is a free-to-play release, so that does mean plenty of in-app purchases. Sadly these IAPs allow anyone who wants to pay for an advantage an easy avenue of obtaining one.

The Tiger

It always surprises me how well Swift Apps LTD's games perform on the Play Store. For what are essentially simple animal themed RPGs, it would appear that it's the multiplayer aspects that really draw people in. Not only does The Tiger give you a path to level up your tiger, but you can take them out into an arena to fight it out PvP style once you feel their level is sufficient. If that does not float your boat, then the included co-op mode should suit you just fine.

Tap Knight - RPG Clicker Hero Game

Tap Knight - RPG Clicker Hero Game is a new idle tapper on the Play Store. It is obviously RPG themed, and if you have played one tapper, yeah, you have played them all. While I am sure Tap Knight - RPG Clicker Hero Game offers an enjoyable experience for most of its players, I have to wonder if the large amount of in-app purchases affect the gameplay negatively. If history is any judge, I am sure they will.

Hunters League : Weapon Masters' Art of Battle War

Hunters League : Weapon Masters' Art of Battle War is an action RPG with some PvP aspects. That means there is an arena mode where you can have at it against real players. This combat is performed by controlling three different characters, sometimes at the same time even. In order to level those heroes up to the point that you can take on other real players, you will have to grind it out in the single player gameplay. A familiar mechanic for sure.

Become the Hunter Master and lead the Hunter Team to be the best. Depending on which Hunter is equipped with which weapon, the Hunter changes the role and characteristics in the team of three hunters as a real-time battle goes on. Using a couple of simple finger gestures of the master(you), the fun of actively controlling three hunters' actions at once or separately is right in front of you. The fun of intuitive action that dodges before hit and hurts when hit, begins directly at your fingertips.

Chaos Battle League

Chaos Battle League plays similar in style to Clash Royale. Essentially it is a real-time strategy game where you play against live opponents in a battle to capture the other players base. Think of it as a simplified MOBA with some tower defense aspects and you will get the picture. Though, what I find most telling is the fact that Chaos Battle League contains in-app purchases that range all the way up to $104.99 per item. For a competitive game, the developers seem all to eager to sell advantage to anyone who wants it.
