Dead Cells is an extremely popular roguelike that was ported to Android back in June (2020), though the mobile version is on a different upgrade path compared to the console or PC versions. This is why the Legacy Update landed on PC back in 2019 and is only now arriving on mobile. Luckily it would appear the wait was worth it since today's update brings with it a plethora of new features and content to the Android version that's all available for free if you already own the game.
There's no denying that ChillyRoom's roguelike twin-stick shooter Soul Knight has found tons of success, what with its 10-million installs currently listed on the Play Store. But now there's a new contender in the mix, and it's called Otherworld Legends. This is a game that plays much like Soul Knight but offers flashier graphics, improved controls, not to mention a bunch of new enemies to fight and plenty of new items to collect.
In October of last year, I broke the news that Dead Cells had popped up on the Play Store as a pre-registration listing, but the title was soon delisted. Sadly there was no way to know if that listing was a mistake, or if someone had simply pulled the trigger a little early. Well, there is no more need to guess. Motion Twin has announced a partnership with Playdigious to bring Dead Cells to mobile. The title is scheduled to be released on iOS sometime this summer, and an Android version "will come later."
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 Swords of Ditto is an adorable cartoon Zelda-like from Onebitbeyond that was initially published on PCs and consoles by Devolver Digital in 2018, and we just learned that the game is coming to Android and that you can pre-register on the Play Store right now.

How you approach the game is entirely up to you, which means you're free to dive into the title's many dungeons in whatever order you wish.
