This week was incredibly short on new releases over on Android, which is likely down to Chinese New Year. That also explains the number of huge updates though, which all draw on the holiday season.
Below, you’ll find the few new releases we uncovered and the wealth of updates for your favourite games. If we missed anything, please let us, and your fellow readers, know in the comments below.
Best New Android Games
Tetris made a big comeback on Android this week, with a brand new entry by N3twork Inc., who seems to have won the licence off EA. It’s a barebones experience, so don’t expect anything overly exciting, but it’s solid and does the job.
Brawl Quest: Alice Brigade is a gorgeous new brawler with some lovely anime visuals out now on Android. You have to save the city of Metro from a bunch of nasty bosses that have taken it over.
Best New Android Games Updates
Out There: Omega Edition got a massive expansion this week called The Alliance, and it introduces a bunch of new ships, story content, technology, achievements, and more. The best part? It’s all free for those that own the game already.
Marvel Contest of Champions received a brand new playable character this week, Nova. If you don’t know who that is, it’s high scool student-turned superhero Richard Rider.
Lineage 2 Revolution had another bizarre collaboration event this week. This time it borrowed characters and environments from Ni no Kuni 2, of all games.
Mario Kart Tour is currently hosting a multiplayer beta for all players, so if you’ve been waiting to check it out, now’s your chance. It also received the second part of the Ice Tour, so you can participate in the new challenges if you want to.
