Catan Stories: Legend of the Sea Robbers

Spinning off from the legendary board game Settlers of Catan, this new game from Asmodee Digital takes on a curious RPG-like gameplay, away from the pure strategy and trading elements of the original game. Catan Stories: Legend of the Sea Robbers takes place around 70 years after the settlers first arrived on the island. The storyline follows three characters, and you get to write their stories by making choices for them. If you’re a fan of the original game, maybe this will strike a chord. The game is available for download for USD$2.00.

If you’re looking for a Mario Kart clone that you can play on your Android device, then SuperTuxKart might be what you’re looking for.

Merge Farm!

Here’s a different take on your regular farming game, from Gram Games, makers of the Merge! Line of games. This outfit started with “Merge Dragons!” and then “Merge Town!” – both verifiable hits on mobile. The concept of Merge Farm! is of course, to plant and harvest different crops to make your farm profitable. Players can then merge crops of the same variety to make them grow and the bigger your crops become, the more fruit they will produce. The game revolves around developing your farm until it makes lots of profit. If this is your type of game, the game is free to download.

The objective is to avoid getting destroyed. Pretty simple, eh? Try it out so you can see just how challenging the game is.

Fallout Shelter Online

So we’re putting this one here because there are a lot of people who do live in China, and that’s probably where this game is going to launch. Fallout Shelter is one of Bethesda’s hits on Android, and an online version where you can interact with other players seems to be a great idea. But this game – made by Shanda – is being developed for the Chinese gaming market, and we don’t know if a global release is planned.

The Alchemist Code

This new game is a strategy RPG mashup, and you can already pre-register for it. Think of your regular Japanese RPG (JRPG) with heavy strategy game elements. Players can customize their own team composition with different characters with different job, skills, and equipment. The game features tactical elements, tasks to complete and gorgeous animated 3D battles.
