Compared to recent weeks, this was a bit of a quiet one for Android. That’s not to say there’s nothing new to play though – far from it in fact, as this list will attest.
So no matter what you’re doing this weekend, stick a few of these on your phone right now. After all, you can take it with you. That’s the beauty of mobile gaming, isn’t it?
Journey Below has been out on iOS for some time, but this week made its Android debut. It’s a roguelike platformer that challenges you to fight your way to the depths of a dungeon.
On the way you’ll collect treasure, upgrade your abilities, and perform a bunch of platforming feats. Grab it on Google Play.
Art of Conquest
Art of Conquest challenges you to create a band of heroes and set out on an adventure full of dragon-slaying and kingdom conquest. The goal is to build a powerful empire of your own, at the expense of enemy players.
Multiplayer plays a big part in Art of Conquest, so if you like playing with your friends, grab it right now on Google Play.
Mushroom Heroes is very reminiscent of Trine or The Last Vikings. You play as three mushroom dudes, each with a unique ability, and have to get them working together to solve a bunch of platforming puzzles.
It’s inspired by retro platformers of yore. If that sounds like your bag, grab it on Google Play right now.
Simple Knights is a combination of clicker, hero collector, and RPG. You’ll build a team of adventurers and send them on a quest to complete a bunch of dungeons.
Along the way, you can unlock new costumes for your knights. If you’re a sucker for cosmetics, this is one for you. Grab it on Google Play now.
Dead Plague is a story-driven twin stick shooter in which you play as a mercenary sent to prevent a deadly zombie outbreak. So you’ll equip yourself with a massive arsenal of weaponry and take the fight directly to the undead.
If you like nice visuals, zombies, and lots of bullets, this one’s right up your street. Grab it on Google Play.
Pocket Claw is a simple concept. It’s one of those claw scams you find in arcades, except it’s digital and you actually have a chance of winning.
There are over 150 toys to gather, each of which is based on a Magic Cube character. You can even customise your claws and create dioramas with your favourite toys. If you like weird games and customising, this one’s for you. Grab it on Google Play.
Farming Simulator 18
Come on, you know the drill by now. Farming Simulator is a sedate franchise that lets you live the life of a farmer, only in your phone. This is the 2018’s iteration of that.
If you love farming, definitely grab this. You might even get a kick out of it if you like Harvest Moon. Maybe. Grab it on Google Play and find out.
Fancy Cats Solitaire
Don’t judge a game on its title alone – Fancy Cats Solitaire has all the markings of a mobile mainstay. After all, who doesn’t love Solitaire and cats? Well, this combines the two!
Try not to rush on your way to Google Play to grab it.
Super Sticky Bros
Super Sticky Bros is a bit like Super Smash Bros but a little more crazy. It’s a multiplayer battler in which you have to challenge your friends to reach the top of a tower first.
There are a bunch of different characters to unlock and play as, so if you like that sort of thing you should definitely grab it on Google Play now.
