Welcome to the roundup of the best new Android games that went live in the Play Store or were spotted by us in the previous week or so. Today's list is broken up into several segments, ranging from best, average, to mediocre. So whether you're looking for the best games of quality or are simply looking for the latest free-to-play gacha titles, you're covered. This week I have the arrival of SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom, the sequel to last year's breakout platformer Dadish, and an average Wallace & Gromit idle game. So without further ado, here are the new and notable Android games released during the last week.
Welcome to the roundup of the best new Android applications and live wallpapers that went live in the Play Store or were spotted by us in the previous two weeks or so. Today I have a fabulous winter sports tracker that's finally made its way from iOS to Android, the rebranding of DC Comic's streaming app into a competent comic subscription service, and a new Japanese Twitter app that's been gaining popularity as it receives English-language updates. So without further ado, here are all of the new and notable Android apps released on the Play Store in the last two weeks.
Welcome to Friday, everyone. It would appear that a plethora of developers have placed their catalogs of games on sale today, including titles from Plug in Digital, Team 17, HandyGames, and Dotemu (a word of warning, many Dotemu titles won't work on Android 11). This is why the games section of the sales list is so plump today. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold green text in order to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 19 temporarily free and 61 on-sale apps and games for the end of the week.
Many Android fans believe in a sort of holy grail: That iMessage can somehow be brought to Android. Almost everything else when moving from iOS to Android has a workaround, an app, or some way to accommodate it, though iMessage remains an Apple-controlled platform exclusive with a dominating presence in the US market. But a new app formally launching today called Beeper aims to change that, delivering not just iMessage for Android, but a single unified messaging app for all your other services, too, like Telegram, Slack, Signal, Twitter DMs, Discord, Hangouts, and even IRC.
Long gone are the days when smartphones were tiny and cramped, and multitasking on them was a distant dream. With the adoption of larger displays and more flexible software, smartphones make it easier than ever before to do more at once. Split-screen, a native Android feature, already lets you work with two apps at the same time. Now Google is reportedly working on a way to make it even easier to multitask, with a new App Pairs feature for launching two apps simultaneously.
Asking for the Wi-Fi password always feels a little awkward, but Google has been working on ways to make the process easier. Android 10 allowed users to share network details via QR codes, and now it looks like Nearby Share could simplify things even further in an upcoming version of Android — possibly even this year's Android 12 release.
Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. The start of the year is often slow when it comes to sales, but I still have a few standouts to share with everyone today. First up is Space Hobo, an enjoyable strategy game that sports pleasant graphics. Next up is Relic Seeker: Hypogeum, a puzzler in the same vein as The Room. Last but not least is Binary Fun, a number game for all of you logic-based puzzle fans out there. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold green text in order to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 30 temporarily free and 25 on-sale apps and games for the middle of the week.
Touchscreens are great for many things, but gaming is not one of them. A better way to play games on smartphones is with the help of controllers and gamepads, and with the dawn of cloud gaming, they've sort of become essential for a console-like gaming experience on the go. Unfortunately, for some users, Android 11 is acting funny with controllers, and in certain cases refuses to recognize them or let them be remapped.
Welcome to Monday, everyone. Sales are picking up once again, and so I have more than a handful of noteworthy titles to share, and I'd like to mention the standouts for today. First up is 9th Dawn III, a fantastic indie RPG well worth the current asking price. Next, I have 7Days, an enjoyable adventure game where your choices matter. Lastly, there's Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition, one of the best CRPGs out there despite the fact it's on sale just about every week. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold green text in order to make discovery easier.
