Space Grunts 2 is an enjoyable card-based roguelike from OrangePixel, now available for $3.99

OrangePixel is a game developer that has been releasing awesome Android games for almost as long as the OS has been around. This is why I'm excited to announce the official arrival of OrangePixel's latest game, Space Grunts 2. It serves as a sequel to the original procedurally-generated roguelike dungeon crawler Space Grunts, but this time around, the turn-based action has been refreshed with a new card-battle mechanic, competently mixing top-down roguelike gameplay with intuitive card-based battles. Best of all, Space Grunts 2 is a premium release, which means you can pick it up today for $3.99.

The Last Remnant Remastered is the latest RPG from Square Enix to arrive on Android, available today for $20

Square Enix has just surprised RPG fans by releasing The Last Remnant Remastered on Android and iOS for $19.99, hot off the heels of the releases for Romancing SaGa 3, and SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions. What strikes me as odd about today's lowkey launch is that Square Enix didn't announce the title in any shape or form for mobile (though a Nintendo Switch version was released this summer), and after the lukewarm reception for the two SaGa games mentioned above, I have to wonder if Square Enix's pricing for its mobile titles is starting to wear thin on fans and consumers alike.

SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions is Square Enix's latest JRPG to land on the Play Store

In September, we learned that SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions (the twelfth entry in the SaGa series) would arrive on Android on December 3rd. Lo and behold, the game is now officially available on the Play Store for $23.99, a lofty price that almost matches last month's launch of Romancing SaGa 3. As expected, this is a premium release, so there are no in-app purchases or advertisements to worry about. What you see is what you get, and what you get is an enhanced Square Enix JRPG suitable for play on mobile devices.

Battle Breakers is the first title to join Fortnite on the Epic Games launcher

Battle Breakers has been in testing on the Play Store since 2017, but Epic has unceremoniously turned the servers off for the Play Store version, most likely because the game has been officially launched through the Epic Games launcher, a third-party app that was previously known as the Fortnite Installer. If you're unfamiliar with Battle Breakers, it's a free-to-play RPG that contains hero collection mechanics. The story revolves around menacing monsters from space that have trapped the world's heroes inside of magical crystals, and of course, it will be your job to free these heroes by fighting these monsters in an RPG setting.

Classic Square Enix RPG 'Romancing SaGa 3' comes to the West for the first time

During E3 2019, Square Enix announced that Romancing SaGa 3, a classic RPG that was originally released on the Super Famicom system exclusively in Japan in 1995, would finally come to the West before the year was out. This announcement was shortly followed by the news that November 11th would be the official release day, and lo and behold Square Enix has kept its promise. Romancing SaGa 3 is indeed available on the Play Store as a premium release starting today, though you will have to cough up $25.99 if you'd like to jump in.

Zombieland: Double Tapper is a F2P idle game that serves double-duty as an advertisement

Zombieland: Double Tapper is a new release that comes from Sony Pictures, and it's a tie-in product for the Zombieland: Double Tap movie coming to theatres on the 18th. Like most branded titles, this is a free-to-play game, and it's essentially an idle tapper that contains gacha mechanics. So you better believe you can expect heavy monetization that's tied to the game's many loot boxes and currencies, all wrapped up in a title that serves as an advertisement for a movie. That's right. Sony would like everyone to sink money into an advertisement disguised as a game, which just about sums up the current state of F2P mobile gaming.

Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don't Dry is a return to form for the series, and it's finally available on Android

Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don't Dry is a point and click adventure game that's the newest title in the franchise. The game has been available on PC and consoles for some time now, but as of today, it has been officially released on Android. Much like the previous titles in the series, this is an adventure game for adults, and since I grew up playing these classics, I'm happy to report that you can still expect the same potty humor as the originals. This means Wet Dreams Don't Dry isn't a game for children, though if you have a penchant for sexually-themed puns, it would appear today's release is a return to form.

Lock's Quest is the latest tower defense game on the Play Store, and it's a premium release

Lock's Quest was originally a Nintendo DS tower defense game released in 2008, and it eventually made its way to consoles and PC in 2017. This means the game was originally a premium release with an upfront price, and a mobile port just arrived on the Play Store for $7.99 without any in-app purchases or advertisements in tow, retaining the title's fair monetization. While reviews are currently mixed on the Steam listing, it's still nice to see a new premium port arrive on Android.

Stranger Things 3: The Game has finally arrived on Android

For those that haven't been following closely, Stranger Things 3 The Game was released on consoles and PC back in July. The title serves duty as a sequel for Stranger Things: The Game, a mobile release that was offered for free and played a heck of a lot like a classic action-RPG. It was one of our favorite releases in 2017, and now that the sequel has made its way to Android, it's time to revisit Hawkins and save the world one more time.

Men in Black: Global Invasion is the latest Pokémon GO clone on the Play Store

Men in Black: Global Invasion is an augmented reality location-based game where you're tasked with collecting characters that can be used to build a superteam to take on the game's turn-based battles. Much like Ghostbusters World, Jurassic World Alive, The Walking Dead: Our World, and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, Men in Black: Global Invasion exists as a Pokémon GO clone that does little to separate itself from the crowd, and apparently it's available in the US and UK starting today. I suppose the aspect of collecting aliens may appeal to the most die-hard of MIB fans, but for the rest of us, this game is simply more of the same with a different skin slapped on top, and yes, it's monetized to the hilt.
