Minecraft is a game in particular that could be quite fun, if done properly mind you, in a Virtual Reality format. If you’re nodding your head in agreement while reading this, then you’ll be happy to know that this is actually becoming a reality. During GDC 2016 next week, Microsoft and Oculus will be unveiling Minecraft for the Gear VR.
Scopely and WWE have announced a new partnership between the two companies, and coming out of that partnership is a new wrestling themed game called WWE Champions.

FlipSide, developed by jcstranger, is a new indie arcade game with not only a unique visual look to it, but also a bit of a unique style of gameplay as well. In this game players will need to split their attention between two characters that you’ll be controlling at the same time.
Released by Pixel Mystique, Ninjet is a new vertical arcade shooter for Android.

In the time we have been doing DroidGamers we have run into many types of hybrid games, some of which make you sit back in your chair and think to yourself ‘huh, there is a neat idea right there’. Well this is one of those times where that happens with this new game called Bar Oasis 2 Aftertaste 1. This is a visual novel that meshes some time management gameplay into it.
Reactor – Energy Sector Tycoon is a new tycoon style of game but not in the traditional sense. With most tycoon games you are building something, whether it is an amusement park, a zoo, or an entire city. While this is sort of true for Reactor, this particular title takes that style of gameplay and combines it with idle genre mechanics.
It always seems like games in a particular genre seem to get released or talked about all within the same time frame. For example, one week a bunch of RPGs will get released or talked about, while another week would be strategy games. It’s never planned, it just works out that way. So far this week seems to have a lot of arcade shooters and the Kings of Steam is a new one for Android devices.
