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.
Spike Chunsoft announced that it would be bringing its Danganronpa visual novel series to Android back in April as part of a 10-year anniversary event. Today, the developer has released the first of three games slated for a mobile release. So, of course, the dev has started with the first title in the series, and it's an Anniversary Edition, which means it brings with it improved gameplay systems and a new gallery feature, as well as optimized touchscreen controls.
Last month we learned that the construction management sim Tropico was finally coming to Android, and today I'm here to let everyone know that the title is officially available on the Google Play Store. Despite its name, this is actually a mobile port of Tropico 3 that has been available on iOS since 2018, and today Android users can finally get in on the fun, all thanks to Feral Interactive.

11 bit studios released the side-scrolling survival strategy game This War of Mine on Android back in 2015. What people may not know is that the game had been available on PC since 2014.

Father's Promise is the first of three planned DLC stories for the PC release, and this expansion has finally made its way to the Google Play Store as a stand-alone release.
Drool's action rhythm game Thumper was initially released on PC and consoles back in 2016. At the start of 2018, a mobile port was released on iOS under the new moniker Thumper: Pocket Edition.

G30 - A Memory Maze was released on iOS back in May of 2018, and today the award-winning minimal puzzler is finally available on Android.

You don't need an introduction to Fruit Ninja. You're probably playing it right now. It has attracted millions of players over the years, partly because swiping to cut things on a touchscreen is as intuitive as pressing A to jump.
So developer Halfbrick Studios has taken the same concept and adapted it for small people who are learning math for the first time. You don't just cut bananas, you cut the right amount of them. It's not enough to split a watermelon in half. You want to slice the one showing the correct answer.
Math problems at the top of the screen will inform you which way to swing your finger sword.
I'd by lying if I said I missed the days when blasting invading space craft with 8-bit energy beams cost a pocket full of quarters. The gameplay itself, however, remains a treasure of nostalgia. One that Syder Arcade HD is blatantly exploiting to get $1 from me and I will happily pay it. Why? Because blowing crap up is awesome.
The game is a top-down free-scroller, which means you actually have a level of control over your movement. You'll also get a number of weapons for killing aliens, shields to defend yourself, and multiple ships to choose from. Oh, and best of all?
