The latest Final Fantasy port to hit the Play Store is a fan favorite

The latest Final Fantasy port to hit the Play Store is a fan favorite

In 2016 Square Enix released Final Fantasy VII and IX on Android, but VIII was still missing from the collection, a point of contention with fans over the last few years. Well, out of nowhere, Square has just released Final Fantasy VIII Remastered on the Play Store, and it's on sale for $16.99 until April 4th, which is when the price of the JRPG will jump up to $20.99.

Dungeon of the Endless has made its way to mobile, but it's a sloppy port

Dungeon of the Endless has made its way to mobile, but it's a sloppy port

Dungeon of the Endless is a positively reviewed indie roguelike tower defense game that's popular on Steam, and it just landed on Android as Dungeon of the Endless: Apogee. You can pick up this new mobile version today for $5, which is currently 30% off the future retail price. This purchase includes all of the title's DLC, so it's a complete package that offers a revamped interface for mobile. Sadly this port still feels pretty rough. Not only is the game too dark to see anything, but the text is too small, the tutorial is painful, and there's no controller support.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night lands on Android for $10, but it's a sloppy port

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night lands on Android for $10, but it's a sloppy port

Back in October (2020), NetEase caught everyone by surprise by announcing that it would bring ArtPlay's indie Metroidvania title Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night to Android and iOS. In the following week, the game landed on the Play Store for pre-registration, with an iOS listing hinting at a December 4th release. Well, it would appear the game has arrived a little early, which means you can already grab Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night from the Play Store for $9.99. Of course, I've taken the game for a spin to offer my thoughts, which you can read in full after the break.

FAR: Lone Sails is a gorgeous atmospheric adventure game, now available on Android

FAR: Lone Sails is a gorgeous atmospheric adventure game, now available on Android

If you've never heard of it, FAR: Lone Sails is a stylish adventure game that's existed on PC since 2018, and it's a well-reviewed title that offers a story-rich experience without displaying a word on the screen. Primarily I would describe the release as a relaxing game that offers gameplay similar to indies like Inside, where the goal is to always move to the right to advance the story, and there's a unique Howl's Moving Castle mechanic in this release that will see you control a massive vehicle as it sails across a dried-out seabed. Of course, roadblocks are expected as you explore this desert, and so you'll solve puzzles to continue your journey forward.

9th Dawn III, a deep and engaging action-RPG worth the asking price

9th Dawn III, a deep and engaging action-RPG worth the asking price

The 9th Dawn action-RPG series started eight years ago (2012) with Valorware's release of 9th Dawn on Android and iOS, and it's an enjoyable RPG that sports aging pixel-based graphics. The sequel, 9th Dawn II, made its way to mobile and PC four years later (2016), and is a much more polished affair, though a jump mechanic and missing controller support held the game back on mobile. Now that 9th Dawn III is finally here, it's clear the wait was well worth it. So if you're looking for a deep and highly-polished action RPG absolutely filled with loot, starting today, 9th Dawn III should be at the top of your list.

Scythe: Digital Edition is an asymmetric competitive board game from Asmodee Digital

Scythe: Digital Edition is an asymmetric competitive board game from Asmodee Digital

Asmodee Digital is best known for bringing many board games to Android thanks to its penchant for creating worthwhile digital ports of physical games. Despite the fact that board games are now more popular than ever, it would seem Asmodee has already worked through its catalog of easily-recognizable titles, such as Ticket to Ride and Carcassonne. This means Scythe: Digital Edition might not have the same name recognition as its forebearers, but it's still a quality release that captures the physical version's asymmetric competitive play.

Humble Bundle brings sci-fi roguelite Crying Suns to the Play Store

Crying Suns is an indie sci-fi roguelite often compared to FTL: Faster Than Light, but that's only half the picture since the game also offers a deep story-rich experience. Well, it would appear that Humble Bundle has just brought the game to Android, and you can pick it up today for $8.99. Clearly, Humble Bundle is expanding its publishing arm, and so Crying Suns is the first game from the publisher to appear on the Google Play Store.
