Set to be released by Headup Games, and developed by Incodra, Dub Dash is a new rhythm game that’s coming soon to Android, which we originally reported on back in September 2015. It was originally slated for release in Q4 2015, but as you can tell, it is a bit late on hitting Google Play. Today, however, we have a more specific release time for Dub Dash.
Released by Bandai Namco, Digimon Heroes! is their latest release on Android. Set in the Digimon universe, this game is a cross between card battles, and match three. In Digimon Heroes!, the story is simple: File Island has been suffering under constant struggle, and is in desperate need for someone to restore peace.
Nexon and Envision Entertainment (formerly known as EA Phenomic) have globally released their new strategy game today called Path of War. This particular MMORTS-esque type of game features a futuristic theme to it instead of a more modern war theme. While the meat of this game will fall under the multiplayer aspects, there is a storyline available as well.
Ketchapp releases games pretty much every week for Android/iOS. The amount of games they produce is staggering, considering how quickly they do it. Sure, most of them are quick and fun to play arcade games, but they seem to fit this niche perfectly. The latest release from Ketchapp and AppLava is called Adventure Cube, and much like Ketchapp’s other releases, it is fun, colorful, creative and challenging to play.
Ubisoft Entertainment is the creator/publisher of some really good games. They could be console games or mobile games. I came across Sandstorm: Pirate Wars several months ago. I wasn’t quite sure what to make of it back then, and I am still not sure what to make of it now that it has been released. The game is visually impressive, the gameplay is interesting and the production quality is high. It even has a bit of a story. If you are looking for Pirates on the high seas, this is not that type of game. Everything takes place in the sun-scorching desert.
Noodlecake has revealed some of their plans for Android game releases for the immediate future today. The first game mentioned is their upcoming Clocks title which will actually be landing onto Google Play tomorrow. The other game mentioned is the much anticipated Alto’s Adventure game, which plenty of us have been waiting for.
I came across a game not long ago that grabbed my attention. The game had interesting looking youthful characters, and bright colors dipped in varying hues. It looked like a runner of sorts, but there was something about it that seemed like it would be fun to play. I reached out to Lightbound Studios and made contact with Artak Avakyan, the founder of Lightbound Studios. I was impressed to find out that this game has been created solely by Mr. Avakyan. After interviewing him, I find Mr. Avakyan to be a brilliant and humble game designer, with big dreams for Lightbound Studios.
Back in the Summer of last year we reported on tinyBuild and their upcoming game Punch Club that would be heading to Android in the Fall of 2015. Obviously the game’s release is running a bit late but the good news is that the wait is finally coming to an end. Today tinyBuild has announced an official release date for Android and it will be arriving later this month.
