The middle of each week seems to be a rather busy time for indie developers and their game releases for Android. While the much bigger game development companies out there tend to release their games on Thursdays and Fridays, mid-week is a good time for the smaller companies and teams to get their goods out onto Google Play.
This also leads to another problem though and that is a plethora of indie games coming out and fighting for everyone’s attention, that is if they get any attention at all. A lot of the little guys end up getting passed over and it is unfortunate because a lot of them have some really great games. With that said, we try to bring even the smallest team and their games to the limelight as much as we can.
So without further delay on our part, here are some of the cool games we’ve come across over the past week or so that you may or may not have even seen on Google Play. We also get plenty of developers showing off their games over on our forums so be sure to check those out as well.
Dodge Balls by Apptention
Dodge Balls is a little retro style arcade game with simple controls but a challenging goal, get your little orb to the other side safely. This is done by moving your orb right or left, dodging everything else that is moving and blocking your path. You’ll have to be quick though as the longer you take, the darker the colors get in each stage, making it become harder to see what you’re doing.
