Welcome back to Android Gaming Weekly, our weekly recap of new game releases. We still plan to cover upcoming releases and games we’re playing, but this column is dedicated to new games that you can start playing right now. Check out our top picks and let us know in the comments section if you have any suggestions for next week’s post.
The Walking Dead: Season One
Description: The Walking Dead is a five-part game series (Episode 2-5 can be purchased in-app) set in the same universe as Robert Kirkman’s award-winning series. Play as Lee Everett, a convicted criminal, who has been given a second chance at life in a world devastated by the undead. With corpses returning to life and survivors stopping at nothing to maintain their own safety, protecting an orphaned girl named Clementine may offer him redemption in a world gone to hell. Experience events, meet people and visit locations that foreshadow the story of Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes. A tailored game experience – actions, choices and decisions you make will affect how your story plays out across the entire series.
Description: Groundskeeper2 throws you in the middle of a war–one with supernatural robots from outer space. Yeah. We went there! Every time you play this game you will get further and have a better chance at surviving. You’ll unlock new weapons like the machine-gun, laser-gun and rocket-launcher; and tools like all-destroying lightbeams, shields, time-slowdowns and more! What’s more important, you’ll unlock new worlds and hopefully become a true hero for the resistance. Or die a quick death and try again.
Description: 15 Coins is a deceptively difficult minimalistic arcade game with one goal: collect 15 Coins before you are killed by your clones. Your ship is always moving forward and all you have to do is tilt or tap to turn left and right to collect 15 Coins. The only things standing between you and victory are endless clones that follow the path you’ve traveled. Crash into a clone and it’s game over. You’re not alone, though; you can collect a power-up to temporarily freeze the clones and smash into them to destroy them! Can you avoid your clones long enough to collect 15 Coins?
Description: A joyful, casual puzzle game that will tease both your wits and your memory! You’ve always dreamt of flying. Roaming high in the clouds, free from all worries. Just gliding through the air like a bird. Unfortunately, you were born as a millipede, and your best chance of launching to the sky is probably in some crows mouth… or is it? Rumor has it that the local Aviation School is accepting new recruits for a pilot course. Seeing an opportunity to make your dreams come true, you seize the moment and embark on the journey of your life. Your path is full of dangers, mazes and obstructions, but the end goal is more than worth it! So rise on your feet, all 100 of them, and get going! Control a millipede, roaming through over 90 diverse levels. Solve the elaborate mazes laying on your way. Gather and use a multitude of power-ups that will help you with your struggles. Enjoy three types of immersing mini games. Grow bigger and bigger and remember: try not to eat your tail.
Description: Guide THE VESSEL down the roller coaster-like track at speed, scoring for each gate you make it through. Navigate hair-pin bends, jumps, banked curves and adverse camber in the quest for the perfect line. And when you learn how to cheat the game, and you discover that it is rewarded not punished, the leaderboards will belong to you. [sic]
Description: A war between two nations is imminent. There is opportunity to make profit out of the incoming war. War Agent is a high score, fast paced resource management game that puts the player in the place of a war profiteer. The game explores the world of war profiteering and how greed can lead to unforeseen consequences on a global scale.
Description: Bounce around and eat as many brains as you can in this fun and addicting arcade Zombie game. Dangerous Obstacles and Rotten Brains (red) will try to stop your way to the Tops of the Leaderboard. Can you beat the Highscore?
Description: Fling! is an addictive puzzle-game based on a simple, unique concept, which is at the same time infinitely challenging. Ideal for all ages. Featuring over 100,000 unique puzzles, no two puzzles you encounter are ever the same. Split into 35 levels of gradually increasing difficulty, Fling guarantees you many long hours of puzzling fun! Each puzzle has a single, unique solution and is solved by simply flinging (pushing) the furballs and watching them bump each other off the edge of the screen until only one is left.
Description: A nuclear armageddon is no one’s dream scenario. So choose your steps carefully. It’s a small path between war and peace. FIRST STRIKE is a great strategy simulation featuring snappy gameplay and an intuitive interface that makes dropping the big one as easy as ABC. But be sure to take the right measures to guarantee your people’s safety.
