If you’re planning to lock yourself up indoors this weekend, probably to gather up energy for the upcoming holiday (and sale) madness, now might be your chance to catch up on some Android gaming. And you might just be in luck! Aside from the plethora of games we’ve brought to your attention the past days, there are two notable ones that might deserve your glance (and maybe your money) as well.
Kingdom Rush Origins brings back the popular tower defense game and, in its wake, it turns back the clock full throttle. Origins, as the name so obviously implies, takes you back to the time before all the rushing madness started. But worry not, as even back then you are already empowered with weapons of mass destruction. New old towers and troops make their way into your hands, including Elf Archers, Mystic Mages, Stone Druids, and more. Of course, you have new enemies to face as well, including new epic bosses.
Kingdom Rush Origins goes for $3.39 on Google Play Store and still offers in-app purchases to further relieve you of your holiday savings.
Soulcalibur, or SOULCALIBUR, isn’t exactly new, but that might very well be the appeal of the game. It is one of the more popular fighting game titles that have managed to amass a faithful following despite being pitted against giants like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. BANDAI NAMCO brought the first installment of the series to Android, though of course that is a mixed bag. Twitch-based fighting games just don’t really feel all that right on a touchscreen because of the lack of that button mashing feeling. But with the proper gamepad accessory and more recently support for the Nexus Player, that might be a moot point.
For a limited time until December 4, Soulcalibur will be available at 65 percent off, meaning it now only costs $4.43. After the promo period, it goes back to its rather high price tag of $13.99.
