Android gaming is getting bigger and better every month it seems and there is always a slew of new titles coming to Google Play. Whether you’re a casual gamer or you want something with a beat more meat on its bones, there’s usually a game coming out to suit everyone’s taste. Let’s take a look at the best new Android games.
WarFriends[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
WarFriends is a fun little social shooter. You’ll play as some ridiculously cartoonish characters along with friends and against enemies. It features a one vs one PvP mode as well as a standard PvP mode with other players. You can also invite friends to play through the campaign mode in online co-op mode. It’s a whole lot bunch of fun. The only bad news is that the in-app purchases can wreck an otherwise engaging online PvP experience. Otherwise, it’s not half bad.
The Walking Dead: Season Three[Price: $4.99 with in-app purchases]
The Walking Dead: Season Three is the latest chapter in a long line of successful titles from Telltale Games. Like its predecessors, you’ll be playing through a section of The Walking Dead comic book. The graphics, animations, and voice acting are all on par with the prior titles. However, the game play seems to be a little buggy right now. We’re sure Telltale Games will fix this eventually. For those who are interested, the game is $4.99 for the first season and then you can buy additional seasons as in-app purchases.
Star Wars: Force Arena[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Star Wars: Force Arena is a card-collecting game featuring everyone’s favorite galaxy from far, far away. In this title, you’ll be tasked with collecting up to 80 characters which can then be used to do combat. It features a freemium-style combat system, support for co-op play through guilds, and a play system that rewards players for putting apropos characters together. It’s a freemium game through and through but it can be fun for some. At least for a little while.
RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic[Price: $5.99 with in-app purchases]
RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic is a port of the classic PC game of the same name. Your goal will be to jump into a scenario and build a park that meets the expectations. This version comes with both RollerCoaster Tycoon and RollerCoaster Tycoon 2. You can buy additional DLC through in-app purchases. It features pretty much everything that the original games did except this one is played with touch controls. It was a classic then and it’ll be a classic on Android soon enough.
Ookujira[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Ookujira is a platformer where you play as a whale. Apparently, aliens have invaded Earth and human technology can’t stop them. Thus, your job is to smash buildings as a giant whale for some reason. Weird logic aside, the game is actually pretty fun. It features colorful graphics, easy controls, a couple of different play modes, and more. It’s a freemium game, but it’s one of the lesser aggressive titles that we’ve seen. It’s good for killing some time.
Mega Man 1-6[Price: $1.99 each]
Capcom released the first six Mega Man games on Android. These are ports of their originals and they are the original games with touch screen controls laid over top. All six games cost the same and none of them have in-app purchases. Unfortunately, all six games do have some frame rate issues that Capcom claims to be looking into. Assuming they get these games fixed, they are all excellent platformers for mobile.
Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location[Price: $2.99]
Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location is the latest game in one of the most popular horror franchises in gaming. You’ll find yourself in a familiar position as a security guard who must keep watch over some possessed animatronics. There are also some new mechanics to give the game a fresher feel. Along with the five nights of standing guard, there is also a mini-game, multiple endings, and a custom night. It’s $2.99 with no in-app purchases.
