Build your own fantasy kingdom and, instead of just growing it with cutesy in-app items and fighting off even cuter monsters, defend it against seriously badass angles, demons, and mages. Or maybe you're more into cats. Lots and lots of cats. Which ever way you swing, we've got you covered in this week's edition of Level Up! But first, a few words from everyone's favorite, or previous favorite, champion of Android console gaming.
"Minimalist yet complex" is something that we often find in the description of a lot of games now (thanks a lot Flappy Bird and its ilk). One of the latest games to sport this tagline is Ultraflow, and if you're up to the challenge of trying to put a small ball in a hole (we're looking at you, golfers, or virtual golfers at the least), then you might want to check out Ultraflow, a new game now available on Android devices.
The steampunk "movement" is a reimagining of 19th century Western civilization, specifically the Industrial Revolution or the Victorian Era in Britain, in science fiction and fantasy literature, which has crossed over to movies, TV shows, and even cosplay. The theme and look has also sometimes been adapted by game developers, but none more so than Steampunker (the name is a dead giveaway), an award-winning game that has now launched its Android tablet edition.
Cats are cute but kittens are (errr...) the cutest. Sometimes I believe the cats own the Internet what with the thousands of cat memes and videos going viral these past few years. They are adorable so anything they do will sell. I’m not sure if these Naughty Kittens will make you feel all warm and fuzzy though but they have one good aim and that is to save Cat’s Planet from the attack of the aliens.
If you're a fan of arcade racing games like Mario Kart, then this new game available on Android devices will appeal to your love of virtually racing through not just the ground but even in the skies. Tail Drift is a 360 degree arcade racer that will see you through loops, tubes, and various fantastic environments as you try to win the race and get as many points as you can.
Arcade game nostalgia has been on an all-time high when a few months ago, some websites published beloved classic games that you could play on your desktop browser. Then some developers updated several retro games for mobile use as well. Another one of those best-selling and popular game from the 80s is making its way to your Android devices, and while it's the game that you're familiar with, it also comes with a reboot.
No, Skyward is not your favorite ship on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, but rather a new Android arcade game that seems simple at first glance, and maybe a few levels in, but gets pretty difficult as it progresses (as all games should right?). It's one of the more interesting one-tap games around, drawing similarities to Monument Valley, but with a charm all its own.
What do you get when you put together a rebellious, bad-ass goat, an oversized rooster with questionable fashion sense and a dream to become a famous rockstar? You get Rockin' Goat a crazy 2D platform adventure game that is complicated yet fun, as you try to help these crazy kids get to the top of the charts, all while overcoming the usual obstacles to that dream, like angry plants, insane traps, and even an apocalyptic meteor.
Beware of aliens that are having a bad hair day! It seems that the bald creatures from the other world have discovered the secret to earth's great-looking locks, and apparently, it's all about the fruits (and follicle-challenged people suddenly rush to the fruit market). But for some reason, they choose to attack the "peaceful Zoozoo Village" and take not just the fruits but also some of the animals. Now it's up to you to rescue them in Joy Flight.
Armadillos may look scary (or at least to those who are afraid of mammals with shells) but mostly they're innocuous and are often victims of road accidents because they're jittery and nervous when startled. So basically, they're pretty harmless. But the armadillos in this new Android game are anything but (actually, they hardly look like armadillos) and have one purpose only: to destroy the blocks around them and get you as many points as they can.
