Initially released on iOS quite some time back, Tomb of the Mask has finally been ported over to Android. The back story for this game is quite simple, in that players assume the role of an adventurer who stumbles upon a golden mask that enables the ability to climb walls. From there, players will guide the adventurer through a series of vertical tombs, that have a labyrinthine layout and are replete with traps and hazards.

You were sick and you were tired, you said to yourself one lonely afternoon, of having to slog through masses of filler mobs on your phone just to get to the real fight. You just wanted to face off against the end-level bosses, you remarked in a low voice as you sat alone on your couch. Little did you know that you weren’t actually alone. Nexon Corporation was there, sci-fi villain-style, listening to you unleash your woes through your smartphone’s mic, but unlike a sci-fi villain, it was scrambling all of its manpower and resources to come up with a solution to help you. That solution turned out to be Evil Factory, which ensures that you skip the filler and get to the killer (bosses).
Jack the miner is a 2D mining game that’s recently been released on to Android.
