18 temporarily free and 23 on-sale apps and games for Wednesday

Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. Today is a slower day for sales, though I still have a few standouts to share. Most notably, the action RPG Titan Quest is on sale for $5 off, which is a steal. Of course, if you prefer something a little more relaxing, the premium match-3 puzzler Kenshō is a worthwhile pickup, as well as the current sale for Black Paradox, a roguelite shoot 'em up that offers an exceptional synth-wave soundtrack. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 18 temporarily free and 23 on-sale apps and games for the middle of the week.

Doom and Doom II updated with better touch controls, adjustable FPS limits, expanded controller support, and more

Bethesda recently updated the Android versions of Doom and Doom II to bring a bunch of new features to the titles, such as tweaked touch controls, support for adjustable frame rate limits, not to mention physical controller support along with mouse and keyboard support. Heck, Bethesda even added a toggle for Vsync (a rarity for a mobile game), for those of you that would like to reduce either title's input latency. So no matter how you slice it, it would appear that Bethesda has actually improved both games, though it could be argued that all of these features should have been available in both titles from the jump.

Eve Echoes delayed due to coronavirus, now coming this August

It would appear that many people are greatly anticipating the release of Eve Echoes, and even though we still haven't heard word-one about an official release date for the sandbox MMO, development is now delayed thanks to the coronavirus. As of this morning, the official Eve Echoes account on Twitter has stipulated that the COVID-19 epidemic has "hindered the developer's schedule," and while an official release date has yet to be decided, the game is expected to be launched at the end of 2020.

15 new Android games from the week of May 11, 2020

Welcome to the roundup of the new Android games that went live in the Play Store or were spotted by us in the previous week or so. Today I have a kart racer from Nexon that's actually pretty good. I also have a quality puzzle-based platformer where you'll play the part of a battery tasked with escaping a factory, not to mention the release of SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off, a children's game where you'll assemble food for all of the residents in Bikini Bottom. So without further ado, here are the new and notable Android games released during the week of May 11th, 2020.

24 temporarily free and 26 on-sale apps and games for Friday

Welcome to Friday, everyone. Today's sales roundup is on the shorter side, but I luckily still have more than a few standouts to share today. Most notably, Hitman Sniper is currently free. Of course, if you'd prefer a solid puzzler, then LASERBREAK 2 is an easy pick up since it's free today as well. But if you're a sports fan, then it may surprise you to learn that R.B.I. Baseball 20 is currently available for $2 off, and this is a brand-new game, so don't miss out. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier.

Zynga's upcoming Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells match-3 game now has a trailer

Zynga has officially announced that it's working on a Harry Potter match-3 game for mobile. This game is called Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells, and of course, Zynga has yet to share a single screenshot or video of the title. Paradoxically Zynga has noted that the game is already available as a soft-launch release in the Philippines, which means the studio is already publicly testing the title, which begs the question as to why there are zero screenshots or videos shared with today's announcement. Could it be that Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells is such a shallow cash grab that it's in the developer's best interest to hide what the game looks like before an official worldwide release?

Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. It's a slow day for sales, though I still have a few standouts to share with everyone.

But if sims don't float your boat, then maybe the educational game Mathematiqa is more your speed. Of course, if you're looking for something more relaxing, then Railways is a new puzzler that people should definitely check out. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier.

DOOM 64 lands on Stadia, bringing classic pixelated carnage to the platform

Admit it, your soul demands a meal made of crazy guns, demons from Hell, and a side of exploding barrels. If you were a gamer back in the late 90s, your first taste of this exquisite dish may have been served up by DOOM 64, a sequel to DOOM II launched exclusively on the Nintendo 64. It's back after 25 years, but this time on Stadia; and now everybody can be nostalgically engulfed in the low resolution chaos.

KartRider Rush+ is here to give Mario Kart Tour a run for its money

You may have never heard of it, but the Crazyracing KartRider series is a popular franchise in South Korea, and so Nexon has finally brought the racer to the West with the release for KartRider Rush+. This is a free-to-play kart racer, much like Mario Kart Tour, and so drifting around corners while dodging obstacles is the game's bread and butter, though much like its competition from Nintendo, this is a game filled with in-app purchases, so expect a plethora of customization options that are available for purchase should you want to deck out your racer and kart.
