It's always nice to see a well-reviewed console-quality game make its way to Android. This time around, Door Kickers: Action Squad is coming to the Play Store, and you can pre-register for the retro side-scroller right now to be notified when it's available for download.
Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. Things appear to be returning to normal, and so I have a smaller sales roundup to share today, though there are still more than a few standouts in today's list. Most notably, Root Explorer is on sale today for half off. Of course, if you're looking for games, then Spitkiss and Tokaido are two titles that shouldn't be missed. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 20 temporarily free and 33 on-sale apps and games for the middle of the week.

Samsung held its annual Unpacked event yesterday, revealing a plethora of products, such as the new S20 line of phones. In an effort to make these phones look appealing to gamers, Samsung also announced that Microsoft's racer Forza Street will come to the Galaxy Store this spring as a free-to-play release. Of course, the game is already available for pre-registration on the Google Play Store, and seeing that I'm an extremely impatient person, I've sideloaded the APK (V29.0.9) to take the title for a spin to see exactly what it has to offer.
In October of last year, I broke the news that Dead Cells had popped up on the Play Store as a pre-registration listing, but the title was soon delisted. Sadly there was no way to know if that listing was a mistake, or if someone had simply pulled the trigger a little early. Well, there is no more need to guess. Motion Twin has announced a partnership with Playdigious to bring Dead Cells to mobile. The title is scheduled to be released on iOS sometime this summer, and an Android version "will come later."
Feral Interactive has announced that it will bring the World War II real-time strategy game Company of Heroes to Android this year. The game was recently ported by Feral to the iPad, and so it makes sense that this mobile port will be tweaked to support phones, and luckily Android phones are part of this equation. So while we don't yet know when to expect the arrival of Company of Heroes on Android, at the very least, we now know the strategy game is coming sometime this year.
Sky: Children of the Light comes from Thatgamecompany, the same developer behind the critically-acclaimed titles Journey, Flower, and Flow. Sky offers an experience closest to that of Journey, where the player gets to explore a beautiful world in an effort to discover an evolving story that's told through meditative puzzle-based gameplay. Unlike Journey, Sky is a title that was built to focus more on a multiplayer aesthetic where players can easily team up with friends and strangers to journey through the world together while solving the game's many puzzles. Sky: Children landed on iOS at the tail end of last week, but it is also coming to Android sometime in the future, and you can pre-register on the Play Store right now.
Google hasn't announced Stadia in a vacuum; game streaming services have been in the works for years, with varying degrees of success. The technology to provide virtually lag-free, high-end graphics over miles of cables and Wi-Fi networks has only recently become robust enough. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Microsoft on Tuesday announced the public preview of its own remote gaming service xCloud, available starting next month.
Welcome to Monday, everyone. Last week it started to look like sales were starting to slow down, but looking at today's list, it would appear that many developers are still putting up quality sales to help everyone alleviate their boredom as they self-quarantine. This is why I'm excited to announce that Beamdog's Baldur's Gate sequel Siege of Dragonspear is available today for half-off. On top of this, you can pick up Bridge Constructor and Heroes of Loot 2 while they're on sale, two quality games that can easily eat up many hours of the day. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier.
