Android gaming is getting bigger and better every month and there are always new titles coming to Google Play. Whether you’re a casual gamer or you want something more action-packed, there’s usually a game coming out to suit everyone’s taste. Let’s take a look at the best new Android games of the month!
Super Mario Run
The famed Super Mario Run is now out on Android. It only took about three months to get here. You’ll play as Mario as you run through levels. You’ll need to avoid some obstacles, collect coins and more. It also features an online multiplayer mode as well as a bit of a builder mode as you rebuild the Mushroom Kingdom. The mechanics have been a bit polarizing but the game works pretty well. It’s free to demo or you can spend $9.99 for the full version.
The classic board game Clue has made its official appearance on mobile. The game is a faithful recreation of the original. You’ll be going through the game trying to figure who did what, where and with what. It comes with a Clue Sheet that will fill itself out based on your guesses. Like the original, it’s a fun little mystery game. It’s $3.99 with no in-app purchases or ads to get in your way. It’s a must-have for board game fans.
Ghosts’n Goblins is one of several Capcom remakes that have hit mobile. This one is a remake of the classic 1980’s arcade game. You’ll play as a faithful knight who must overcome obstacles and bad guys to reach the end. It’s challenging, quick to learn and surprisingly well done. You’ll also be able to choose between four button layouts. In any case, it’s $1.99 with no in-app purchases.
Island Delta is the latest game from Noodlecake Studios. This one is an action-adventure game. You’ll be running through levels, blasting bad guys and overcoming obstacles in order to reach the end of any given level. The game contains 30 levels stretched across three chapters. You’ll also have hidden areas to find, a story line to play through and more. It’s a little buggy game at the moment. It’s $2.99 and has no in-app purchases.
Link Twin is an interesting new puzzle game. You’ll play as two people as you overcome obstacles. The two move in tandem and you use obstacles in the level to change their location relative to one another. There are over 100 levels to complete, ten different types of objects to interact with and a lot more. Plus, it has that minimal graphical style that is all the rage right now. It’s relatively cheap at $1.99. It’s fun and worth a shot.
Mushroom 11 is a post-apocalyptic puzzle game. You’ll play as a giant pile of fungus. When you destroy part of the blob, it regenerates on the opposite side of the blob that you destroyed. You use this mechanic to move it around levels until you reach the end. There are seven different worlds to play through, dozens of achievements and mechanics built-in to let you track things like speed runs and scoring challenges.
Octave is a point-and-click horror game. You’ll play the role of a dude who gets dragged into a dark forest somewhere where a bunch of creepy stuff happens. You’ll have to find things, solve puzzles and proceed through the plot to make it out alive. It’s not the most graphically appealing game ever, but the mechanics are great. The only issue is that you can only save the game after you complete a chapter. That means you’re locked in for a while. Otherwise, it’s $1.99 with no in-app purchases.
Shadowmatic is a unique puzzle game with some fun mechanics. The game works by dangling random objects in front of a light. Your job is to move, twist and turn the objects until the shadow it projects is a coherent image. It contains over 100 levels with many having secondary objectives as well. The free demo will give you the first 14 levels for free. You’ll have to unlock the rest with a single $2.99 in-app purchase. It’s a fun and family friendly puzzle game.
Splitter Critters is a platform-puzzle game. The mechanics in this one are fairly unique. You literally have to slice levels in order to proceed. Obstacles that get in the way have to be moved by cutting the level apart and removing them yourself. The game has some colorful graphics and cute characters. It costs $2.99 and there are no in-app purchases.
The Frostrune is a point-and-click adventure game with a deeper story line than most. You’ll find your character shipwrecked during the summer time. The idea is to find stuff and overcome obstacles in order to find out what’s going on where you landed. It’s filled with stuff like Norse mythology, Viking myth and other similar concepts. It’s a decent game that shouldn’t take long to play. You can download the demo for free or pick up the full version for $2.99.
