So many games, so little time. This week’s edition of the Top New Android Games of the Week is full of great games and it was quite the task to trim it down to only 10. There’s definitely a little something for everyone this week with games including dog loving sharks, pixely warriors, and two buff brothers with a love of guns. Without further ado, we proudly present our picks for the best of the bunch from last week…
1. Solar 2
The Humble Bundle dropped last week and Solar 2 is one of three new Android games to come our way. Solar 2 lets you play in space as you’ll take control of an asteroid and use it to form a planet. From there you can zip around the universe stealing planets from other solar systems, attack other planets or just drift around do what planets do. It’s a great looking game and it’s well worth the $4.00 price tag. If you’re looking for something different check out the demo of Solar 2.
God of Blades lets you step into the role of an undead warrior king that’s out to defend his world against an evil cult of doom. You can read a bit more about White Whale Games God of Blades here or you can head on over to Google Play and pick it up for a buck.
If you like 8-bit games Pixel Kingdom is a game you’ll want to look into as it puts your defensive skills to the test against hordes of 8-bit enemies.
