One of the most iconic games of the late 90s has finally come to Android. Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition re-launched on iOS a few months ago, but it was a rocky ride as licensing issues nearly killed the game. Now Android users get the chance to spend $9.99 to relive the glory days of Dungeons & Dragons-style computer RPGs.
Baldur's Gate is an epic RPG set in the Forgotten Realms.
Wind-up Knight 2 first appeared in the Play Store last month, but it was geo-restricted to Canada to get the kinks worked out. Now it's ready for everyone else to take a look at. Just like the previous title, Wind-up Knight 2 is an action-platformer with style to spare. It offers in-app purchases, but does so in a pretty reasonable way.
Have you ever played The Simpsons: Tapped Out? Imagine that concept, but with Family Guy in place of The Simpsons. If that interests you, the new Family Guy The Quest for Stuff game is a thing you should download and play.
It's time to bust stuff up in a cross-platform manner. Aerena - Clash of Champions has arrived in the Play Store after debuting on Steam (coming to iOS later). This is a turn-based combat game that promises quick, high-energy matches with squads of cool heroes squaring off. It's free-to-play, but the model doesn't sound bad. Note: it's tablet-only.
If humanity dies out in the future, what are all the robots going to do? Fight, according to EPOCH 2. The first title was one of the prettiest games on Android when it launched a few years back, and the sequel promises to up the ante with more effects, more guns, and many more angry robots.
EPOCH 2 is a cover-based shooter set in a world populated by robots with nothing better to do than shoot at you.
Wonder Momo is one of those things that's popular in Japan, but less so elsewhere. There was an arcade game in the late 80s, an ongoing web comic, and a few game ports on other devices (also for Japan). Now we can all get a look at the weirdness that is Wonder Momo: Typhoon Booster. All you need is an Nvidia Shield and 15 bucks.
You could almost guess Castle Doombad is an Adult Swim title without being told. Adult Swim has a very distinct, delightfully diabolical style to its mobile games, and this one is no exception. Castle Doombad contains devious traps, a kidnapped princess, and an evil super villain. However, you are the super villain who kidnapped the princess and stuck her in the dungeon guarded by traps. How's that for a twist?
That new smartwatch may not be the first platform that comes to mind when the urge comes to kill time gaming, but Pebble wants to change that. Today at the Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco, the company announced three games that it's immediately making available for its smartwatch. The three titles - Mr. Runner, Icon Pop Quiz, and Hatchi - all come from different developers, and as you can see below, they're now just a tap away in the Pebble appstore.
There's a mystery afoot and only your most skillful tapping and dragging can solve it in Broken Sword: Serpent's Curse. This is the fifth title in the Broken Sword franchise, and it returns to the series' 2D roots with clean pre-rendered graphics. This game tore it up on Kickstarter back in 2012, eventually raising $771,000. If you didn't back the project, you can now get your hands on the Android version for $6.99.
The original Wind-Up Knight was an endearing little platfomer, and it's looking like the sequel is just as cute and includes some new gameplay mechanics. This game has launched in Canada first, with access expanding to other countries soon. Most of you will have to make do with the trailer for now.
