You may not have heard of it, but Huntdown is an excellent retro-futuristic run-and-gun title that's found tons of success on consoles and PC. It offers a slick '80s theme where you'll blast your way through hordes of enemies, and as of today, it's available on the Google Play Store. Huntdown is free to try, and if you like what you see, then you can unlock the rest of the title through a single in-app purchase.
Wallace & Gromit: The Big Fix Up is an upcoming augmented reality game for mobile, and it's slated for release in the UK in the fall of 2020 and will be released worldwide at a later date. Since this is a fresh announcement, only a few details have been shared, and so far, we know the game will be animated through CG, and that fans will get to join the duo in their latest business venture as an employee of the Spick & Spanners. Ideally, the game will provide a home-based experience (as in this AR game can easily be played at home), and will support the majority of modern smartphones.
Early last year, we saw Thomas Young's radish-based platformer Dadish hit it big on the Play Store, and it's easy to see why. The game is simply adorable thanks to its charming 2D graphics, and better yet, it's a quality platformer that offers the fun and simplicity of the classics. This is most likely why the game was a breakout success, so it's hardly a surprise to see that the follow-up has been released in quick succession. That's right, Dadish 2 is here, and much like the original title, it's a free ad-supported game where you can remove its advertisements through a single in-app purchase, making for a premium release.
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.
The Drawn to Life platforming series started out on the Nintendo DS back in 2007, and in the following years saw the release of a spin-off and a sequel. The property was eventually sold to 505 Games, the same company that just announced that it's bringing a new title in the Drawn to Life series to Android, iOS, Steam, and the Nintendo Switch on December 7th. This long-awaited follow-up is called Drawn to Life: Two Realms, and it's a direct sequel that picks up where the last title left off.
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.
