Absolute Drift

Absolute Drift was initially released on PC, Mac, and Linux back in 2015. It was recently ported to Android and published by Noodlecake Studios. If you couldn't tell by the title, it's a racing game that's all about skillfully drifting around corners. There are five different customizable cars, three game modes, five free-roaming areas, and a kicking drum and bass soundtrack. The touchscreen controls work well, and there is even bluetooth controller support, should you prefer a physical controller.

Twinfold

Kenny Sun is a developer with a consistent track record of releasing solid games on the Play Store. Twinfold is the newest release from the dev, and it's a mind-bending strategic puzzler with a roguelike bend. The primary goal is to merge tiles with one another, kind of like the puzzle game Threes, but with the added twist of enemies and unique power-ups that can be used to your advantage. Everything is procedurally generated, which means you'll have infinite replayability.
