Welcome to the roundup of the best new Android games that went live in the Appvn or were spotted by us in the previous week or so.
My Friend Pedro
My Friend Pedro is a popular indie bullet-time shooter on PC and consoles, and Devolver Digital has brought the game to mobile, but it’s an all-new experience that utilizes slingshot controls, not a port. Luckily the slingshot-based touch controls work well, though you’ll first have to get used to them. Luckily there is an option to reverse the controls if you find them tricky. Best of all, you can play the entire game for free.
UnderKnight: One Thumb Warrior
UnderKnight: One Thumb Warrior is exactly that, a game you can control with one thumb. This, of course, dumbs things down dramatically since you’ll move and attack with a single button. The graphics are simple, though they get the job done, and the roguelike mechanics means you’ll be doing the same thing over and over again, and since that consists of a single button you continually tap with your thumb, things grow stale quickly. The game is in early access, which means it isn’t monetized just yet, so if you feel UnderKnight looks interesting, now is the best time to jump in before things get much more greedy.
Legends of the Dark
Legends of the Dark isn’t a standalone digital adaptation of the board game of the same name. Oh no, it’s a tie-in product that you have to use with the physical tabletop title. A companion app, if you will. So think of this release as the DM for the game, where it fills in the story while tracking all players and their equipment for easy number crunching. So while there is some gameplay within this release, you will have to own the physical game to make use of it.
Flip Rider – BMX Tricks
Flip Rider – BMX Tricks is indeed a game where you’ll pull off dope BMX tricks on a halfpipe. You’ll hold your thumb on the screen to flip, and then you’ll tap buttons to pull off tricks. You’ll do this to earn in-game currency, which will be used to purchase new riders, bike upgrades, and tricks.
Empire Defender TD: Tower Defense The Kingdom Rush
You’re a skillful master in strategy game? Thrive on your wise tactics and fight formidable opponents. Lead your mighty heroes and defend the frontiers of your realm from the darkness!
Enter the game with millions of players in an endless battle around the world to win victory and fame. If you are a true Fantasy Tower Defense fan, this TD game can’t be missed! You will be surprised by the wonderful graphics and impressive gameplay.
Shot Online: Golf Battle
As a big fan of golf games, I just had to check out Shot Online: Golf Battle. As you would suspect, this is a competitive golf game with a focus on real-time battles.
Meet our unique match mode, Survival mode where you can play with 7 other players around the world. Each round will be held with different rules, but you are always welcome to use club skills. Since all the rounds will be elimination rounds, the last survivor gets the biggest and best prizes. With 8 players, the game gets more and more intense, and the different rules for each match will bring excitement to the competition.
Candy, Inc.: Build, Bake & Decorate
Candy, Inc.: Build, Bake & Decorate is basically a casual idle game where you sit and wait for things to complete so you can tap a button and then wait some more. Add new rooms and wacky facilities, take care of helpers and follow an interesting story!
