Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got a calming puzzle game, a survival horror game that places heavy emphasis on sound, a delightful 2D platformer, the sequel to the quality mini-golf title Nano Golf, a free-to-play JRPG from notable developers, and a car tycoon game from Gameloft.
Two weeks ago we learned that Alien: Blackout would be a brand-new chapter in the Alien franchise and that it would also be coming to Android sometime soon. Usually, these types of mobile announcements are made close to release, which definitely holds true in this case as Alien: Blackout is now officially available on the Play Store for $4.99.
Atypical Games is probably best known for its Sky Gamblers air combat series, though it looks like its open-world first-person survival games are starting to get some attention on Android. Escape from Chernobyl picks up the story after the events in Radiation City, and it's your job to unravel the mystery previously left unsolved. So get ready to explore an accurately recreated Chernobyl power plant that's filled to the brim with zombies in this hauntingly gorgeous open-world survival game.
You will notice right away that White Night uses a black and white color palette that clearly offers a very stylized look. While we have all seen this style used many times before, what can't be gleaned from a quick glance is the fact that this game uses its minimal color choice to its advantage by implementing plenty of mechanics that are dependent on the way light is shone in your immediate environment. So instead of jumping on the bandwagon and using a black and white theme for what is now considered an easily created look that covers up imperfections, OSome Studio has chosen to build their game around this color choice and in doing so has the clear advantage of being able to use it in a unique way that presents some very clever puzzles to the player.
Listen people, shit just goat serious. Your life was great, you rampaged through the city, flew a jetpack, shot humans with baseballs, went to outer space,..., basically you've had some goat old fun. But something has gone awry and your billy is now a threatened zombie goat that needs to eat in order to survive. Such is the tragic story follow-up to the original Goat Simulator, GoatZ.
Taking a few too many jabs at DayZ in its title, artwork, and description ("Completely realistic survival mode where you have to eat every damn five minutes to survive because Dean Hall & Garry Newman said so"), GoatZ is a survival horror game where your goat is facing chainsaw-yielding masked men, flipping in the air and kicking attackers, driving a car worse than in an Asphalt 8: Airborne scene, flinging green goo all over its enemies, and crafting items out of thin air.
Five Nights at Freddy's might just be the most nerve-wracking week you will ever experience. In this point-and-click survival horror game, players are responsible for watching over Freddy Fazbear's Pizza between the hours of midnight and 6AM. As it turns out, these just so happen to be the hours that the animatronic robots at this place of amusement and fun happen to wander the halls. They're made of metal and wires, not flesh and blood, yet for some reason they still have the tendency to stick night watch workers in their mouths. As you would imagine, it tends not to end well.
You’re a cute, gun-toting, mildly suicidal blob huddled in the only light amidst the darkness. You’ve got an endless stream of huge, hairy monsters barreling in, intent on abducting you and your kind. Your fate is sealed, it’s hopeless...
That’s the setting of Hopeless: The Dark Cave, a new survival-horror by Upopa Games. Your sole task is to help these innocent looking critters stay alive by shooting down their aggressors before they can get their claws into those little marshmallow-like bodies.
The game is played by tapping on the screen to deliver a killshot to the villainous beasts. Quick reflexes are required as both friend and foe will come rushing out of the darkness towards your group.
Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got an impressively atmospheric survival horror game, a game that mixes Peggle and Angry Birds, and a game that's way too indie for you, man. Without further ado:
Survival horror games are a bit under-represented on Android, but Dark Project seems to hit all the high points of the genre.
