If you’re tired of replaying those old games you’ve already played thousands of times (like Angry Birds and all its versions), you’ll be glad to find out that every day Google’s Play Store published hundreds of new apps, including games for Android tablets and mobile phones. Of course, not all those games are good enough, but there are certainly several worth playing. And below come the best 5 of recently released Android games that we’ve tested. They’re nice, interesting and additive, so they’re definitely worth trying!
1) Lego: Build your Brain
One for the kids (and the adults that love their Lego), Lego: Build your Brain has been launched on Android as a game to accompany the recent Life of George set. Mixing smartphone gaming with physical play, this game requires players to build bricks using the real-life set and then take photos of them using the phone’s camera with the aim of building your brain bigger and stronger. And it will look great on both tablets and smaller phablets like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or the original Note.
2) Venture Towns
If you are looking for a game that makes you wonder where the last few months of your life have disappeared to, Venture Towns is it. Kairosoft’s incredibly addictive Sim-style game puts you in charge of building a town full of stores, towers, mansions – anything you want really. The game is simple and looks great on both smartphones and tablet pc’s.
3) My Dragon
First there was Tamagotchi, then came Nintendogs, now we have the latest in virtual pet nurturing – dragons. Everyone at some point or other has wished they could have a dragon as a pet and My Dragon makes dreams come true. The premise is the same as ever: keep your dragon happy and healthy. You complete this in the usual way of feeding, playing with, and dressing your dragon. You can also complete various tasks along the way to help you adopt even more dragons.
4) Bombshells: Hell’s Belles
Advances in Android hardware have meant that we can enjoy high-octane fast-paced console-style games like Bombshells: Hell’s Belles. If you are a fan of Crimson Skies, the cartoonish dogfight style of this game is tailor made for your enjoyment. There are over 200 different planes, an incredible array of weapons, stylish environments and badass enemies. What makes this game even better is the female pilots.
5) Galaxy Empire
Gamevil’s latest Android game is a brilliant mix of resource management, diplomacy and strategic warfare, based on the classic game Starcraft. The science fiction world is very much what you would expect and there is a space-themed soundtrack to play along to, ensuring that you know exactly what setting you are playing in. Galaxy Empire’s most appealing feature is the community aspect which makes it a great game for the long-term.
