The Best New Android Games of the Week – June 1, 2013
The last week of May brought some great new Android Games to the table as we saw several new Indies, puzzlers, and a few more movie tie-in games. We narrowed this week’s list down to 8 Android games that are definitely worth a look if you’re in the mood for something new. Without further ado, we proudly present our picks for the Best New Android Games of the Week…
1. Little Luca
We’ve seen a lot of physics puzzlers over the past year, but none have the 8-bit vibe of Little Luca from Glowingpine Studios. You’ll have to help little Luca light up the sky across 90 pixely levels, and you’re going to have a lot of fun doing it. I only got to spend a brief time with the game this week, but it was enough to put it in the top spot on our list of the Best New Android Games. You can pick up Little Luca for only $0.99 on Google Play.
Indiana Stone is an awesome endless runner where you play a boulder that’s after a treasure hunting adventurer. Hilarity ensues, and treasure hunters get crushed if you’re good with the granite. It’s one of the coolest runner games you’ll play, and it’ll only set you back $2.99. You can pick up TwinSky Games Indiana Stone on Google Play.
3. World War Z
World War Z is game based off the upcoming Brad Pitt movie by the same name. You’ll take control of a man in search of his family as you fight of the undead across 28 apocalyptic levels. It’s not a true shooter (rails), but it is a good looking game fans of the book/movie may want to check out. You can pick up World War Z for $4.99 on Google Play.
If you’re into zombies, there’s a new game called Shelter you’re going to want to check out. It’s a CCG game involving the undead, and it’s got a great storyline that compliments the graphic novel inspired visuals. This one’s currently only on the Amazon Appstore, but should be back on Google Play shortly. You can check out Survivalist Games Shelter for $1.99.
Forest of Doom was one of the first fighting fantasy games a lot of us played, and now you can relieve the adventures in Darkwood Forest on your favorite android device. If you’ve played any of Tin Man Games other gamebook titles, you already know what to expect and just how good Forest of Doom will be. It’s pricy at $5.99, but well worth it if you dig these types of games. You can pick up Forest of Doom on Google Play.
If you’re looking for an adventure game with a unique sense of style, look no further than Ku: Shroud of the Morrigan. You’ll go an epic touch-based adventure where you’ll have to find treasure, battle monsters, and solve tricky puzzles. It’s also a steampunk style game based on ancient Celtic mythology, so it’s got a pretty interesting storyline to boot. Bitsmith Games Ku: Shroud of the Morrigan is available to download for $2.57 on Google Play.
Every red blooded male with cable has seen at least one episode of Ninja Warrior. Thanks to the folks at Marvelous AQL, you can now get some Ninja Warrior action on your favorite Android device. You’ll take on obstacles galore with 30 various courses to go along with a half dozen Midoriyama bonus levels. We haven’t tried this one out, but it certainly looks interesting. No free version is available, but Ninja Warrior can be yours for $1.99.
Gluddles are bouncy globular creatures that just want a little privacy. You’ll help them out with that by bouncing them towards The Supervisors, aka the Eye in the Sky. It’s a bit of an oddball, but a whole lot of fun, and you can read a little more about it here. If you’re ready to bounce some eyeballs, you can get the first 20 levels of Gluddle free and unlock the rest for a price via the in-app purchasing system.
