Long Hat House's metroidvania 'Dandara' is officially out on Android

The beauty of Long Hat House's Dandara lies in its controls. Since it exists as a metroidvania title that includes plenty of platforming gameplay, the use of a unique shooting mechanic for its movement makes it that much more palatable on touchscreen devices. It's refreshing how well this mechanic lends itself to mobile-centric gaming thanks to how precise your movements can be. And honestly, it allows Dandara's level design and gameplay to shine just as much as they would on any other platform.

Sega has been releasing new Android games for their SEGA Forever program on a bi-weekly basis for quite a while now. Sonic CD Classic is the latest to hit the Play Store. It is, of course, an HD port of the classic Sega CD platformer. Just like every other SEGA Forever release, Sonic CD Classic is a free-to-play title with a single $1.99 in-app purchase to remove the game's plentiful advertisements.

Capcom brings Ghouls'n Ghosts MOBILE to the Play Store

Capcom has been steadily porting many of its classic games onto Android for the last 6 months. The newest title to come to the Play Store is Ghouls'n Ghosts MOBILE, the sequel to Ghosts 'N Goblins and a brutally difficult side-scrolling platformer in its own right. The game has been optimized for mobile and it includes new content, but is that enough of a draw to get past the difficulty expected of a touchscreen controlled platformer?
