Like we mentioned in our previous article, Square Enix has announced a few games today that are coming to mobile devices in the near future. Another one of those game is Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin, which is the prequel to their other game called Valkyrie Profile. Like Project: Rising's news, there is very little in the way of details right now regarding Valkyrie Anatomia outside of a teaser trailer.
Developed by Team Meat, the award-winning indie platformer Super Meat Boy is now available to download on Nvidia Shield Android TV. Inspired by classic games like Ghost ‘n Goblins and Super Mario Bros., Super Meat Boy is a precision-based puzzle platformer that puts your reflexes and quick thinking to the test. Super Meat Boy’s levels become increasingly challenging the further you progress in the game, too.
Crescent Moon Games has been quite busy lately with a stream of releases for iOS and Android. Android gamers will be treated to a new match 3 puzzle game this week called Jewel Road. The art work in the game is pixel-based, but it is lavishly rendered. The game is a collaboration between Crescent Moon Games and Loony Rocket Studio, a micro studio based in Vienna, Austria.
Square Enix decided that today was a good day to begin announcing a bunch of games heading to mobile, and one of them is a title called Project: Rising. Unfortunately there isn't a whole lot details about this game, mainly because Square Enix is just teasing this game's official revealing which will be happening next week.
Released by NTT Resonant Inc, Neo Monsters is a game where players capture, evolve, and build a team of monsters. Set in a distant land, under the rule of the Verosian Empire, which depends on monsters for everything from companionship to assistance with labor. Above all else, the monsters that battle provide entertainment.
Released by ForthWardStudios, Aurora: Quarantine is a new entrant into the balance ball genre. Set in the year 2098, the world has succumbed to pollution and the misuse of resources. In response to this, ecological sanctuary cities are created, but only the super wealthy can afford to live there and thus escape the hardship that everyone else is forced to endure.
Back at the end of March Snail Games announced the arrival of Taichi Panda Heroes which was heading into closed beta testing that day. Since then we have been playing in the closed beta, which is actually quite a lot of fun. Today, however, Taichi Panda Heroes has dropped the closed beta tags and instead soft launched in a few select regions.
If you're a fan of indie games, puzzle games, or both, then there is a new title heading to Android soon that you'll want to keep an eye out for called Zenge. Developed by Hamster On Coke Games, which is made up of acouple of indie developers, one being Michal 'Hamster' Pawlowski and the other being Korad Januszewski, who did all of the illustrations, Zenge is actually quite the good looking game both visually and in terms of how the gameplay checks out.
This may not be 100% Android game related but it is pretty damn cool nonetheless. Someone has decided to port the ridiculously difficult Flappy Birds game to be playable on the black and white digital screen used on their Vape box mod. The game is running, fully playable mind you, on the screen of a eVic-VTC Mini e-cigarette.
Rovio, makers of all things avian and angry, have released a new game into the Angry Birds franchise called Angry Birds Action! The game is currently being rolled out softly in a few select regions, so I haven't had the opportunity to try it out yet. That being said, the game fits the mold of prior releases, where players will pull back on Red, and then let him loose to bounce around a variety of outdoor structures (sound familiar yet?), to see what can be taken down.
