A rather interesting game has been released onto Google Play today from MMz Tech called Pixel Quest RPG. What makes this game fairly unique and interesting is the concept for it which is essentially a combination of old school RPGs (think Final Fantasy) with TCG style mechanics and the sandbox style of games like Minecraft where you can craft and build items.

A new match-3 RPG has landed on Android called Djorick’s Curse from Keener Apps. As you may be expecting, this is a full match-3 RPG title where matching three or more of the same symbol allows you to attack, heal, repair or collect gold when you are taking on various enemies.
A new rogue-like dungeon crawler has arrived for Android called Dungelot. Developed by Red Winter Software, this rather unique style of dungeon crawler has players flipping over tiles as they search for the key which will allow them to escape the level they are currently on safely. As you flip tiles, you’ll also reveal either loot or monsters you will need to fight.
The rather popular pixel-art laden PC horror game called Home is currently under development to receive the porting treatment to other platform. Right now iOS is confirmed as to being one of the new platforms Home will be arriving on but Mac and Android are also in the running as well.
Naught, a nifty looking side-scroller by Blue Shadow Games will have you twisting your way through many different levels in the hopes of grabbing diamonds and seeds. The controls are relatively fun. You can choose to use the accelerometer or buttons on the screen to tilt the landscape, forcing your little black and white dude to move one way or the other. At first the controls feel clunky or poorly tuned. It took me a while to try out all three control styles — my favorite eventually becoming the on-screen pair of buttons — before I felt comfortable. It’s a neat mechanic but it’s essentially the same game we’ve seen before.You’ll recognize the gimmick pretty quickly, but not until after you’ve had some fun working through some different levels.
While OUYA happens to be the first Android-based gaming console to really see success so far even if it is just a successful Kickstarter campaign and developer support right now, there is a new kid on the block aiming to compete with OUYA called GameStick.
There is no guarantee that this will arrive on Android or anything like that but the developers of the popular Xbox Live indie game called Fez have revealed that the game will be making its way to multiple other platforms this year. A post by Polytron, the developers of Fez, they announce that they are working on bringing the game to multiple new platforms and that it was rather dumb of them to only release on Xbox Live.
