The new Star Wars movie may still be a couple of years away, but as early as now, they have been drumming up attention for the much beloved franchise, especially for this new generation. Disney has been airing several TV specials featuring Jedi Master Yoda and even Phineas and Ferb have gotten in on the action. And now LEGO has released a new Star Wars game for Android devices with The New Yoda Chronicles.
While most of the games that you play on your mobile devices allow you to become a hero, there are times when the latent criminal element in you just wants to play a bad guy. A new Android game lets you become a robber trying to escape from the police (and the traffic as well) and it's a great bit of make-believe criminal fun.
When you were younger, you probably dreamed of going on a super secret special mission for the CIA or a black ops team for the government.

Air Hockey is probably one of those games that would always bring about an air of nostalgia for those who’ve lived in dorms or attended a frat party at least once in their life.

If you’re a fan of that crazy monkey from SEGA, then the newest edition of the Super Monkey Ball game would make you bounce all around the room. Yes, you guessed it right, it’s called Super Monkey Ball Bounce and it is now available for your Android device in all its bouncy and colorful glory.
Since throwbacks and nostalgia seem to be the in things nowadays, are we really surprised that things from our childhood are coming back to give us that “has it really been ____ years since I watched/listened to/did this” feeling?

And while the actual toy is indeed making a comeback, there’s also a new way of playing with your virtual pet and that is through an Android app.
If you have dreams of becoming the next Lionel Messi, well at least digitally, then you better start practicing those football skills on your smartwatch now. Super Party Sports (SPS) has released the wearable edition of their Football game, exclusive for those that are running on Android Wear. The game is simple enough to run on a smartwatch but it claims that “boredom will have no chance” against the game, as long as your wrist doesn’t get tired from all that action.
As if Candy Crush did not destroy so many digital lives already, the creators are now trying to drive us crazy (in a good way) again with a brand new game where you turn into a cute treasure hunter.

If it’s your dream to travel through space and fly endlessly across the different galaxies, you are one step closer to checking that off your bucket list. Well, virtually at least if you have an Android gadget that is.

If you’ve always had a childhood trauma regarding bears and animatronic toys, you better not download this newest indie horror game.
