The Best New Android Games and Sales: Gun Rounds, This War of Mine, Planescape Torment, and More

As we ease into August we’re forced to accept that summer is slipping away. What better way to soften the blow than with new games and bargains? This week brings a couple of interesting new titles, as well as a whole bucketful of bargains.

As ever, This War of Mine is worth grabbing cheap. Teslagrad is a must, too, and if you haven’t already got Kingdom: New Lands this is a good moment to rectify your error.

New Games

Gun Rounds

Gun Rounds is a quasi turn-based strategy shooter inspired by Downwell. It’s been out on PC for a while, with generally rave reviews, and it’s currently sitting on 4.9 stars on the Google Play Store. Pull the trigger.

Marvel Duel

Marvel Duel is part-battler and part-autochess, starring characters from the infinitely large and expanding Marvel universe. Unfortunately it’s not out everywhere – only Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines. and Malaysia so far, but a global release seems likely.

The Everlasting Regret

The Everlasting Regret is a slightly surprising addition to the Android library of Tencent, publisher of PUBG Mobile. Based on a classical Chinese poem, it’s a gorgeous, painterly puzzler with “oriental” puzzle-solving gameplay.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Neuron

Yu-Gi-Oh! Neuron isn’t a game. It’s a companion app, designed to make your life easier while playing the Android Yu-Gi-Oh! CCG. It helps you with deck management, as well as simulating coin tosses and that sort of thing.


911 Operator

911 Operator is an award-winning time-management game in which you play as an emergency dispatcher – a brilliant premise that we can’t believe isn’t more common. You can pick it up right now for a song.

One Deck Dungeon

Based on a real life tabletop game, One Deck Dungeon fuses dungeon crawler with dice game, card game, action, strategy, and more. It’s a deep, well-regarded title and it’s almost half-off right now.

This War of Mine

This War of Mine, from 11 bit Studios, is a bonafide modern classic. It takes deep, well-balanced resource-management gameplay and locates it in an unbearably bleak wartorn-setting in which you play as the civilians instead of the soldiers.

Evoland 2

Evoland 2 is an ingenious RPG that sees you working your way forwards through time, from the 8-bit era to the more recent past. It’s a great premise, pulled off with class.


Teslagrad, from highly discriminating publisher Playdigious, is an acclaimed puzzle-platformer boasting hand-drawn art and inventive gameplay. It’s an absolute steal at 99c.

Planescape Torment: Enhanced Edition

Planescape Torment is universally recognised as one of the best games ever made. It’s a classic western RPG built on the classic D&D mythology, and you can pick it up for just $4.99 right now.

Kingdom: New Lands

Kingdom: New Lands, from publisher Raw Fury, is just $2.99 right now. The immediate forerunner to the recently released Kingdom: Two Crowns, it sees you laying down roots in a new territory in glorious 2D pixel-art style.
