You may have never heard of it, but the Crazyracing KartRider series is a popular franchise in South Korea, and so Nexon has finally brought the racer to the West with the release for KartRider Rush+. This is a free-to-play kart racer, much like Mario Kart Tour, and so drifting around corners while dodging obstacles is the game's bread and butter, though much like its competition from Nintendo, this is a game filled with in-app purchases, so expect a plethora of customization options that are available for purchase should you want to deck out your racer and kart.

Samsung held its annual Unpacked event yesterday, revealing a plethora of products, such as the new S20 line of phones. In an effort to make these phones look appealing to gamers, Samsung also announced that Microsoft's racer Forza Street will come to the Galaxy Store this spring as a free-to-play release. Of course, the game is already available for pre-registration on the Google Play Store, and seeing that I'm an extremely impatient person, I've sideloaded the APK (V29.0.9) to take the title for a spin to see exactly what it has to offer.
The Five Nights at Freddy's survival horror franchise is a popular one, which means there are more than a few titles out there already. Ultimate Custom Night is a game that takes all of the best bits from the other titles in the series, which is why the developer labels Ultimate Custom Night as an FNaF mashup. This means you can expect 50 selectable animatronic characters where you can mix and match them to your heart's content, all while selecting your playthrough difficulty to ensure a worthwhile session no matter your skill level.
Heal: Pocket Edition is a brand new point and click adventure game from the creator behind the successful Distraint puzzle-horror series, Jesse Makkonen. Unlike the Distraint series, where psychological horror takes a front seat, Heal: Pocket Edition delves into the realities of dementia. This means it will be your job to guide an old man through the game's gloomy puzzle-filled world as you piece together a tale that's primarily told through atmosphere instead of text. This means Heal is something of an experimental release that offers a heartwarming story that's primarily revealed through gameplay, and you can pick up the Android version today for $4.99.
We're Five Games and tinyBuild have released Totally Reliable Delivery Service on the Google Play Store, a sandbox game that offers ragdoll physics and online co-op multiplayer gameplay. This means you can choose to deliver packages alone, or team up with a friend (up to 4 players), and the ragdoll physics will ensure an even distribution of noodly chaos as everyone comes to grips with the controls. If you dig games like Human: Fall Flat, then you're going to love Totally Reliable Delivery Service.
Atari just released Missile Command: Recharged on the Google Play Store, and it's a reimagining of the classic arcade game, though shooting down an endless barrage of missiles is still the primary goal. The title is free-to-play and includes advertisements, but you can remove those ads through a single $2.99 in-app purchase, which means this is a fairly priced game, so it's definitely worth checking out.
DevilishGames' indie puzzler Path to Mnemosyne was just published on the Play Store by Crescent Moon Games. The title has been available on consoles and PC since 2018, and today marks the official release on mobile. Most notably, Path to Mnemosyne offers a unique black and white design where the game's hand-drawn path continually zooms out, making for a surreal experience that's almost hypnotic. Of course, puzzles will play a significant role in your progression to ultimately restore a young girl's lost memories.
Talk about a welcome surprise. Konami has silently released Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on the Google Play Store, and you can grab it today for $2.99. More importantly, this is a quality release that brings controller support, a new continue feature, content from the Sega Saturn version, and is displayed in the original 4:3 aspect ratio, so it's most likely a port of the PSP version. Really, the only thing that is missing from today's release is Nvidia Shield support.
Nippon Ichi Software has released its classic strategy RPG Disgaea 1 on the Google Play Store, seemingly out of nowhere. This new release goes by the name Disgaea 1 Complete, which means the title is indeed a remaster of the original Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. Better yet, Disgaea 1 Complete is a premium release, which means there are no in-app purchases or advertisements included. Of course, since this is a premium remaster of a classic SRPG that contains hundreds of hours of gameplay, a premium price is also attached.
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.
