Fans of games such as Super Mario Bros and other arcade platformers have a relatively new one to sink their teeth into on their Android device called Oliver World Adventures. In this particular game players will be assuming control of Oliver, who happens to be a monkey, and will help him get through each level on his quest to safely check out the rest of the world he lives in, with the end goal being to get to the castle and stop the evil that resides in there.

We haven’t done a Hidden Gem type of article in quite some time, but that’s not to say we haven’t found any Hidden Gems to write on. It’s quite the opposite really but getting time to write about all of them is hard to do at times. However we find ourselves having some time to write about one called The WUUUUUUUUUUUU.
Super Ping-Pong by Urara Works is one of those games that ends up flying under everyone’s radar until someone comes up to you and tells you to check out this cool little game. Well that is basically what has happened here, where Super Ping-Pong slipped by most people until someone posted about it on our forums and we checked it out.
Welcome to the tenth installment of our Under The Radar column where we showcase a few noteworthy games that we were not able to publish as full articles on the site. Ultimately, with this, smaller developers get vital exposure for their games and you get to have more games to play on your plate. If you know of more quality games released recently that have not got the attention they deserve, let us know by leaving a comment!
We haven’t done a Hidden Gem article in a little while but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been games that land on our desk that were not worthy of such a label. In fact there have been a lot of them so we have decided to inject some caffeine into our veins and get the series back up and running. You can now meet the newest addition to the Hidden Gem games, City of Secrets by Aidem Media.
We have another Hidden Gem for you today in the form of a nice little time killer of a game called Astro Dodger by Astro Adventures. We actually found out about this game thanks to the developer posting about it in our forums. For killing time whether it is five minutes or thirty, Astro Dodger is a good way to go about it.
It’s been awhile since we dropped a Hidden Gem article in your laps. It isn’t that there hasn’t been any games suitable for a Hidden Gem article, it is just that there are so many great games to play we get all caught up in playing them. We were told to check out iDaTank by Ubinuri and so far it is a great game.
While there are ports of some of the old school FPS games that have graced our PC or consoles in the past available on Android, these are at their core, just ports. There is nothing wrong with a port of one of these old games but if you are looking for something a little more original, there isn’t a whole lot to choose from.
We got a nice email telling us about a game called Dangerous from Binary Helix that happens to be on the Android Market. This is an open world space sandbox combat RPG title which, from the moment you download and start the game, will actually impress you quite a bit.
It has been a couple of weeks since we posted our last hidden gem and today we have a great little asteroid shooter called Alpha Wave by Hardline Studios. This game is a solid, fun shooter where you are in control of a little defense ship/turret with the job of protecting your planet.
