Rymdkapsel by Grapefrukt ended up becoming quite the popular RTS game on multiple platforms. Now the developers have revealed their next game and it is a fancy little puzzler called Twofold Inc. This looks like it will be one of those games that is easy to learn but difficult to master.
A rather beautiful, minimalistic game called Prune will finally be making its way to Android next week. This game won Best Upcoming Games at the 11th IMGA (International Mobile Gaming Awards) and was also runner-up at the IndiePlus 2015. Awards aside, Prune is a really unique looking game with a pretty interesting concept.
Orlyapps has released their first Android game onto Google Play called Commander Cool 2, which is a retro-inspired arcade platformer.

It’s Tuesday which means there are new games available for people to play on Nvidia’s gaming-on-demand service called GRID. Last week saw the arrival of Bionic Commando and this week we have a new game called La-Mulana available for Shield owners to play.
In this game, players assume the role of Fracy, pursuing his love interest Mery. During his trip, a tornado arrives and causes all sorts of damage at a nearby chemical factory that experiments on animals. In doing so, all sorts of unnatural creatures are released, and impede Fracy from his goal. All of Fracy’s clothing were sucked away in the tornado, as well as one of the creatures abducting Mery.
Enjoy reading comics in the Sunday paper, maybe as a kid? I sure did. Well, in Brutus & Futée, the eponymous protagonists are a pair of comic strip characters that entered retirement after their creator mysteriously disappeared. Bored in retirement and longing for the more adventurous days of starring in a strip, they end up experiencing the type of prank that a creator might perform on them, in a strip.
Bacteris, a game about bacteria, is now available for Android devices. Within this game, players will assume the role of a single bacterial organism, and attempt to win the other bacteria over to your side. A level is completed once that is done. Here’s the catch though: the other organisms are attempting to “infect” you, the player, to their side.
Limbo is a 2D side-scrolling game released by Playdead. The premise of the game is simple, bordering on basic: players assume the role of an unnamed boy searching for his sister who’s apparently lost in Limbo. While this is fine enough of a reason (excuse?) to go off on a grand adventure, it isn’t mentioned in the game at ALL, but rather pulled from the game’s Google Play page. And to clarify this point, there was no prologue, cut scenes, epilogue, narration, subtitles, or any thing else that would advance a narrative. No story, but for the byline found on Google Play. The thing is though, this game is so good that I didn’t care. Also, not only is this the closest thing I have to a complaint, it’s my sole one at that.
Created by Ariano Games, Dot Heroes: Woop Woop Ninja is a Floppy Birds clone, with an RPG twist. There isn’t much of a story to speak of, so I’ll describe the gameplay. Players control a little black dot that wears a red headband. At the start of the game, and each subsequent level (so far as I played), the dot flies/falls through the air, inky contrail and all, only moving upward when the screen is tapped.
