Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got a neon-themed arcade game, a delightful indie RPG, a highly-polished educational game that teaches players how to tell time, a procedurally generated platformer, a logic puzzler, and a minimal word game. Without further ado:

Ding Dong XL

Super Fowlst

Super Fowlst is a procedurally generated action game with simple controls and unlimited replayability. It plays somewhat like a platformer, though you'll spend the majority of your time bouncing on enemies. Despite the procedural generation, your character gets to keep its loot, which can be traded in for powerful upgrades. The more you upgrade, the longer you will be able to survive, which means you'll be able to collect even more loot.

Hexanome

Hexanome is a minimal logic puzzler that requires plenty of patience to solve its 76 hand-crafted levels. Your goal is to collect all of the squares on the grid while an AI tries its darndest to stop you dead in your tracks. Luckily there is no timer, so you are free to think out your moves in advance to ensure that pesky AI doesn't one-up you.
