Rayark International is a developer that's best known for its rhythm games, such as Cytus, though the DEEMO series is also pretty popular. While we've known that the sequel DEEMO II would be coming to Android since May (2020), it would appear the Rayark has also remastered the original title to create DEEMO Reborn, which has been available on Steam since September (2020). This remaster replaces the original's 2D graphics with new 3D designs in order to create a much more immersive title, and as of today, this remaster has landed on the Play Store for pre-registration.
After the success of Bridge Constructor Portal, it would appear Headup Games has been working on a new branded release for the franchise that's themed around The Walking Dead TV show. Well, the studio recently teamed up with the YouTuber Drae to show off the game in action, and while the commentary is often cringeworthy, the 20-minute video still offers a solid look at how Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead plays. So if you'd like to take an early look, Drae's video is available below the break.
Amanita Design is probably best known for its point and click adventure game Machinarium, though Botanicula and CHUCHEL are also highly-regarded titles that offer similar gameplay. Of course, the studio started with a game called Samorost, and it has received two sequels since its 2003 browser-based release. Sadly only the third title in this quirky series has been available on Android. That is, until today. Amanita Design has just released Samorost 2 on the Play Store, and it sports improved graphics, a new save system, as well as fullscreen support, all to celebrate the game's fifteenth anniversary.
If you've never heard of it, Space Marshals is an enjoyable top-down tactical shooter series that's already seen twoAndroid releases. Seeing that the series is so popular, it makes sense that the developer would want to follow up with a third release, and the first chapter in this title is now available on Android a day early. You see, Pixelbite announced that Space Marshals 3 would arrive on November 5th, with a $4.99 in-app purchase to unlock the entirety of the first chapter. Well, the game is here a day early, and if you'd like to give it a try, you can grab the free install from the Play Store right now.
Many developers have been trying to copy the success of Niantic's Pokémon GO with clones that offer similar gameplay, and so it's easy to jump to conclusions when new map-based mobile titles are revealed. Surprisingly Bandai Namco has actually come up with a unique way to utilize the map, and so Pac-Man Geo is a game where players will create new mazes out of the streets in their cities. While there's still a collection aspect in the title, seeing that high-scores will unlock collectible landmarks, at least the core Pac-Man gameplay has been retained.
Asmodee Digital is best known for bringing many board games to Android thanks to its penchant for creating worthwhile digital ports of physical games. Despite the fact that board games are now more popular than ever, it would seem Asmodee has already worked through its catalog of easily-recognizable titles, such as Ticket to Ride and Carcassonne. This means Scythe: Digital Edition might not have the same name recognition as its forebearers, but it's still a quality release that captures the physical version's asymmetric competitive play.
There's no denying that ChillyRoom's roguelike twin-stick shooter Soul Knight has found tons of success, what with its 10-million installs currently listed on the Play Store. But now there's a new contender in the mix, and it's called Otherworld Legends. This is a game that plays much like Soul Knight but offers flashier graphics, improved controls, not to mention a bunch of new enemies to fight and plenty of new items to collect.
Atari just announced the arrival of Beat Legend: AVICII, and it's described as a rhythm-action experience, so it's essentially a rhythm game. As you would expect, this release contains many of the top tracks from world-renowned DJ and producer Avicii (Tim Bergling), such as Without You, Wake Me Up, and Levels. Better yet, this is a premium release, which means you can purchase Beat Legend: AVICII from the Play Store for $2.99.
Yesterday (July 15th), many of those who pre-registered for the release of Tales of Crestoria received a notification the gacha RPG was available on Android. Of course, Bandai Namco decided that Google's pre-reg system exists to be abused, so the game wasn't actually available, but was instead released while the servers were still in maintenance. This resulted in the Play Store listing being flooded with 5-star reviews before the game was playable since the "release" was tentatively called a pre-load by eager fans sticking it to anyone that left a 1-star review after receiving a release announcement for an unreleased game.
The Pokémon Company has had a busy day thanks to a recent live stream, and so a bevy of announcements are currently floating around. First and foremost, the company announced a new match-3 game that will arrive on the Play Store on June 23. It's called Pokémon Café Mix, and you'll get to prepare drinks and dishes for your customers, all by matching Pokémon icons in a simple match-3 game, and it's currently available for pre-registration. Second up is an educational game for children called Pokémon Smile, and it's designed to teach kids how to properly brush their teeth, as well as keep up the habit by collecting Pokémon.
