This week’s list of the Top New Android Games offers up a new game from Disney, battles on rafts, and new games that are slick enough to impress even the most hardcore console gamer. There were some great releases last week, and we picked out 8 that we though were the best of the bunch…
1. Raft Pirates
6waves released an interesting MMO or sorts last week called Raft Pirates. It’s a pirate game that allows you to put together your own fleet built from rafts and armed by robots. Be warned… it’s highly addictive and watch out for The Jolly Molly because I’ll blow you out of the water. You can check out Raft Pirates for free on Google Play.
If you like your fighting games with a bit of humor thrown in then Brotherhood of Violence should be right up your alley. It’s an old-school fighter full of quirky characters, big bosses, and terrible dialogue. Terribly terrific that is if you like a little cheesiness thrown into your games. It’s not going to be for everyone, but it’s quickly become one of our favorites. You can pick up Realtech VR’s Brotherhood of Violence for $3.89 on Google Play.
The name says it all. Shoot Many Robots is a game all about killing robots, and you’ll do that as hillbilly extraordinaire, P. Walter Tugnut. The game has silly hats, robots with chainsaws, and chaos by the truckload. Interested? Shoot Many Robots is free, but ad supported and you can pick it up on Google Play.
If they ever made the underrated classic Waterworld into a game it would no doubt resemble Oil Rush in some way. Oil Rush is a real-time strategy game set in an apocalyptic world where the land’s been covered by the seas and oil is a precious commodity. It’s one of the best looking RTS’s you’ll see on a mobile and it’s quite a bit of fun to boot. There’s a demo of the game you can check out, and if you like what you see the full version can be yours for $7.99.
Looking for a new space shooter with insanely cool graphics and a slew of levels? Let me introduce you to Plasma Sky from Spikepit Games. Plasma Sky is an intense Android game that puts your skills to the test as you battle big bosses, evil enemies, and snakes. Yup, there are snakes, and lasers… lots and lots of lasers. It’s one of the coolest space shooters we’ve seen this year and it’s well for the $0.99 price tag.
Abalone is a classic game beloved around the world, and now you can put your marble pushing skills to the test with the Android version thanks to the folks at AMA. Abalone for Android comes with 60 levels, a rules editor, and a free game mode with around 30 official variations. The free version of Abalone gives you 10 levels to try, while the full version gives you all 60 for $3.49.
Looking for a gorgeous RPG with a deep storyline and engaging gameplay? If so, look no further than Ravensword Shadowlands from Crescent Moon Games. The game really has it all from flying mounts to prehistoric creatures and magical runes. It even uses a reputation and jail system, and there’s mention of pick pocketing and stealth. Count me in. It’s pricy, but it’s a very cool game and you can pick it up for $6.99.
8. JellyCar 3
Disney has been on a roll lately and their latest Android game is called JellyCar 3. It’s a driving/physics game that’s all about squishy little cars trying to get through tricky levels full of squishy obstacles. You’ll get 50 levels of squishy physics fun and it’ll only set you back a buck.
