Today we've got a fantastic strategic tower defense game, an enjoyable educational puzzler that revolves around construction and safety, an pleasant casual arcade game ArmNomads, the latest drag racing game in the Nitro Nation series, a top-down shooter that contains a boatload of tongue in cheek humor, and a new hack and slash game from 111%. Without further ado:

Dungeon Warfare 2

Dungeon Warfare 2 is the follow up to Valsar's well-received tower defense game Dungeon Warfare.

There are 33 unique traps in the game, with over 30 enemy types to take down. There are also 60 hand-crafted levels to explore along with an unlimited amount of procedurally generated dungeons.

Ground Up Construction

Ground Up Construction is an educational game about career awareness, and it's completely free to play. It's a puzzle game themed around building commercial property, and it will be up to you to plan these buildings correctly by solving 100 challenging puzzles. Mainly you'll drag and drop blocks to form specific shapes. The game serves as a bit of an advertisement, and even though no ads are listed on the Play Store description, you will happen across pop-ups that will inquire about your knowledge on subjects like trade apprenticeships.

Spin Up!

Spin Up! is a new casual release from ArmNomads. You start out on a single line moving from one end to the other. You can change directions by spinning, and your job is to spin out of the way of the game's many obstacles, and if you can do so as a counter times down without dying, you'll get flung to the next line to repeat the process.

John on Fire A Mans Cat Taken (Top Down Shooter)

John on Fire A Mans Cat Taken is a tongue-in-cheek top-down shooter that embraces the many tropes found in the action films that star dudes named John. It plays like a twin-stick shooter, though the sticks are virtually represented on the touchscreen. There are plenty of unique weapons to collect, and there's also a bunch of extra content to work through once you finish the campaign.

You'll also come across a few boss fights that will put your hacking and slashing skills to the test.

Monetization: free / contains ads / IAPs from $1.99 - $49.99
