Shadow Zone by NewGround is a turn based strategy game set in 1986 when Chernobyl’s 4th block has an accidental nuclear explosion and the area is sealed off. This game boasts 40+ hours of game play so it’s definitely not a short game you’ll be done with in a couple of hours. I actually stumbled onto this game looking for something completely different but I’ve been pleasantly surprised.
I’ve seen this game on the Android market since it’s release and have wanted to try it out since the screen shots looked pretty interesting. T.T.D. by Infolife lets you control a spaceship within a set area while enemies spawn all around you making you move to dodge getting shot while shooting them in your little space.
Ready to improve your twitch gaming style to it’s fullest? Well this game doesn’t really help with that. However, if you want a pretty decent gallery shooting style game using characters from CS then you’ll probably enjoy CounterStrike Training by Calford. It’s a pretty simple but enjoyable tap game where you tap the screen to shoot people.
Slime by InfoLife is a typical block breaking game with a slight twist which is you are able to rotate the screen and have the blocks fall into different positions to help you out and make bigger combos. The free version of this game lasts for 30 days so it’ll give you plenty of time to try it out before deciding whether or not to buy the paid version.
Flight Director meets rush hour traffic in this new game called Traffic Control by Rosewood Aquarium Studios. In Traffic Control you tap cars as they head into an intersection to accelerate them and avoid accidents with other cars.
SCVNGR is a geo-gaming platform that enables anyone to quickly and easily build location-based mobile games, tours, and interactive experiences that can be enjoyed from any mobile device or at least that’s what the website says. Either way it sounds and looks like a really cool concept.
It seems today is filled with all sorts of retro goodness for some reason. Kamyran’s Eye by PHK is a very retro looking “rogue-like” RPG (think even before the original Final Fantasy). One cool feature is that every time you play the game, the world changes a little bit so it’s never quite the same each time.
In the spirit of all things ’80s, Grave Digger by FightingFish Games (you got to love some of the developer names) comes to Android. Grave Digger was a really cool game back in the ’80s that was pretty popular so when I saw this game on the market I had to grab it and try it out.
Mini Droid Defense II by BlueCap Studio is another tower defense game but with more 3D style graphics in an isometric view. The creatures you kill also don’t follow an exact path making this particular tower defense game a bit harder then the rest of them that are out right now.
Herocraft, the developers of many popular Android games including Farm Frenzy, M.U.M.U., Zum-Zum and more just dropped a bunch of updates to a lot of their games on the Android market.
