Micro Battles lets you play games with your friends on one device

Do you remember the days when you used to play against your friends in game consoles while you were in the same space and using the same device? No? Well, if you're of the generation that just plays on your own respective devices, here's something new to try. And if you're part of the generation that longs for the days when playing games used to be social, then here's some throwback fun for you. Micro Battles is a new game on Android that lets you play with actual people while you're holding a single device!

République: a stealth-action game to feed surveillance paranoia

Thanks to WikiLeaks, Edward Snowden and all the hacking and leaks from our favorite apps, we've become quite paranoid and suspicious when it comes to our privacy and what the government and corporations are doing to invade it. A brand new game on Android will feed on this a bit with its storyline, but serious mobile gamers will still play it since it has been developed by people who have brought such popular games as Metal Gear Solid, Halo and FEAR. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the République.

Rovio’s Retry game to challenge and frustrate you

It was a wise man (or jedi) who once said, " Do or do not. There is no try." No, we're not talking about a new Star Wars game, but rather, a game that from the name itself already tells you that they do not agree with this philosophy. Retry is in the vein of games that will highly frustrate you (think Flappy Birds) but will hook you into trying to win again and again and again (hence, the name).

Galaxy on Fire – Alliances now ready for Android gamers

We haven’t featured any games from Hamburg-based game studio Deep Silver yet but the Android version of the Galaxy on Fire – Alliances deserves our attention. Why, this new strategy game has recently taken New Zealand, Australia, and Canada by storm. It quickly became a popular app in the said countries where it was released prior to the major launch this week.

Sim City ventures into city building with Build It app

Who among us have never enjoyed a SIMs game (and maybe you still are addicted to it!) or an entertaining-at-the-start-but-might-get-repetitive-eventually city building game? A new game from EA combines the best of both worlds as they soft launch SIM City Build It, which is what its name says it is. You get to build a whole city from the ground up, but without the complication of having your (sometimes annoying) sims around and you do it from the convenience of your mobile device.

Epic Dragons turns the table, makes players defend dragons

Crescent Moon Games, who has given Android titles such as Ravensword Shadowlands and Aralon Sword and Shadow, are back with another game called Epic Dragons. Mighty and epic as that may sound, this game is anything but. The dragons are not ferocious beasts but cute cel-shaded ones. And the gameplay isn't entirely epic but a tower defense with a slight twist. In this game, you get to be the one that plans out how these dragons will defend themselves against pitiful humans that want to hunt them down.

Pixel People lets you build a community in Utopia

Ah Utopia. We would like to live in such a society, but some say it is impossible to ever achieve something like it. But a new Android game will allow you to build a society in it, albeit only digitally and pixel-wise. The city building game is called Pixel People and if you liked Tiny Tower and all its iterations, then you'll enjoy this game which lets you simply build a community in a place called, you guessed it, Utopia. Oh, and you need to be okay with the idea of cloning.

Escape from Montegrande tests your skiing skills, speed

Montegrande is the highest prison in the world. Anyone trapped inside the horrible place would want to escape for good. If you’re a prisoner, go on and try to escape from Montegrande and outsmart the policemen who will go on their way to hunt you down.

Outcast Odyssey brings card-battling to another level

For serious gamers, a game that will combine dungeon crawling, card collecting/battling and RPG in one package is probably a dream come true. One new title available on Android devices called Outcast Odyssey does just that. It is based on the real-life card-battling game, but now adapted in mobile gaming format. It lets those who've played the game before experience it on a whole new level and can also bring in new fans who've never tried this kind of game before.
