It took its time, but Albion Online is finally available on the Google Play Store

It took its time, but Albion Online is finally available on the Google Play Store

Albion Online comes from many of the people that worked on EVE Online, and so it too is a sandbox MMO, and as you can see in the picture above, it offers a fantasy theme. Back when the game was crowdfunded through founders packs, it was promised that an Android and iOS version would be made. An Android APK has been available since 2017, but the iOS version is still missing. Well, as of today, Sandbox Interactive has announced that the MMO will be officially released on Android and iOS this summer, with cross-play in tow for all platforms.

Slay the Spire brings its deck-building roguelike action to Android

Slay the Spire brings its deck-building roguelike action to Android

It's official. Humble Games will be bringing Slay the Spire to Android on February 3rd, which is only a few days away. The game was initially released in early access back in 2017 for PC, and then was officially launched on PC and consoles in 2019, and last year the game made its way to iOS, and now it's clear Android users will soon be able to get in on the fun. If you're unfamiliar with the title, it's a roguelike deck builder where you'll use your cards to battle enemies as you make your way up the spire in an effort to reach the top.

Pac-Man Geo brings the classic arcade game to your city streets, but it's in rough shape

Pac-Man Geo brings the classic arcade game to your city streets, but it's in rough shape

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.

Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells is the latest cash-grab from Zynga, now available on the Play Store

Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells is the latest cash-grab from Zynga, now available on the Play Store

Zynga has officially announced that it's working on a Harry Potter match-3 game for mobile. This game is called Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells, and of course, Zynga has yet to share a single screenshot or video of the title. Paradoxically Zynga has noted that the game is already available as a soft-launch release in the Philippines, which means the studio is already publicly testing the title, which begs the question as to why there are zero screenshots or videos shared with today's announcement. Could it be that Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells is such a shallow cash grab that it's in the developer's best interest to hide what the game looks like before an official worldwide release?

SINoALICE is the latest RPG from Yoko Taro, and it's available today for the first time in the West

SINoALICE is the latest RPG from Yoko Taro, and it's available today for the first time in the West

Yoko Taro's mobile RPG SINoALICE will finally see a worldwide release after an indefinite delay last year. The game was initially published in Japan back in 2017 by Nexon, and yet it would appear that the publisher wants nothing to do with the title anymore, and so Nexon is transferring the license to the original developer Pokelabo. Interestingly Pokelabo has just announced that it's cooperating with Square Enix to bring the game to the West on July 1st, though I have to wonder if this announcement is simply a last-ditch effort to make money with an aging mobile game that even Nexon couldn't bring to fruition as a global release.

League of Legends strategy spinoff Teamfight Tactics now available on Android (Updated)

League of Legends strategy spinoff Teamfight Tactics now available on Android (Updated)

Riot Games (the creators of League of Legends) recently announced three new games for mobile and consoles. I've already covered the announcement for the MOBA League of Legends: Wild Rift, and in this article I'll be talking about Teamfight Tactics: League of Legends Strategy Game, a PvP auto-battler where you'll you’ll draft, deploy, and upgrade from a revolving roster of League of Legends champions. Essentially, it's an auto-chess game. This standalone mobile title should mirror the auto-battle mode found in the PC version of LoL, and cross-platform play is expected between PC and mobile.

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.

ZeptoLab's newest game is Om Nom: Merge, an adorable take on 2048 (Update: Out now)

ZeptoLab's newest game is Om Nom: Merge, an adorable take on 2048 (Update: Out now)

ZeptoLab is a famous mobile game development studio thanks to its casual arcade series Cut the Rope and its many spinoffs. The last monumental release from the company was CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars, though it would appear that the developer is going back to its roots with a new testing release titled Om Nom: Merge, though we're not too sure exactly where it's being tested other than in Brazil. This means the majority of Android users will not be able to play just yet. The game appears to offer a twist on the classic 2048 formula, where you'll combine Om Noms to create new characters for the purpose of eating fruit so that you can earn in-game currency.

Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery brings jump scares to the real world with official Android release

Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery brings jump scares to the real world with official Android release

Last month we learned that the next Five Nights at Freddy's release would enter into early access in November, and thanks to a recent press announcement, it has been revealed that the official launch of Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery will take place today. It would seem early access was opened worldwide this past Friday, and today marks the official release. Much like the previous titles in the series, you'll have to confront malfunctioning animatronics in an attempt to survive their horrors, but this time around, you'll do so in a game made exclusively for mobile devices that uses augmented reality to bring its jump scares to the real world.

Raw Fury has just revealed that Plausible Concept's indie RTS roguelike Bad North is coming to Android on October 15th, and as of this morning, the title is already available on the Play Store for pre-registration.

It will be your job to defend an island kingdom against a horde of Viking invaders by taking command of the island's inhabitants in order to control the broad strokes of each procedurally generated battle, and so far PC and console reviews have remained positive since the initial release.
