Top 10 Android Games of the Week – December 4th, 2011
1. World of Goo
World of Goo is an award winning game from 2D Boy that puts you to work building towers of Goo with lots of hapless little Goo Balls. All Goo Balls are not created equal as you’ll soon find out when dealing with different types of Goo. At its core World of Goo may be a physics-building game, but once you get sucked in you’ll find out it’s much more than that. This quirky little game has a unique style, an engaging storyline, great atmosphere, and more globs of Goo than you can shake a stick at. I highly recommend people check this one out, it’s one of the best games you can get for your Android. There is a demo version available to see how it runs on your device or you can go ahead and grab the full version of World of Goo for $2.99.
Frisbee® Forever is a Frisbee themed game by developers Kiloo Games. You’ll get to toss around the classic disk, but the twist comes in the form of tracks as you’ll fly your Frisbee through 100 awesome tracks that take you from the Ocean to the Mountains, and everywhere in between. There are also tons of different Frisbees to unlock which adds a little depth to this fast-paced game. Frisbee Forever is free to download in the Android Market.
Fling A Thing is a funky new flinging game from Big Blue Bubble makers of the uber-popular game Burn the Rope. The game lets you fling 7 different “things” across 3 worlds, and your things will stick to objects with some help of their suction cup mouths. I haven’t gotten a change to play this yet, but from what I’ve seen with the screens and trailers this game will be very popular, very soon. You can get Fling a Thing in the Android market for free.
Fling! is an addictive puzzle game from Candycane Apps with the simple, but unique theme of flinging little furry creatures off the screen. There are over 100,000 unique puzzle that are broken down into 35 levels of gradually increasing difficulty. Once you take into account 4 games modes, Fling! is a game that’s going to keep you busy for quite some time. Very cool game, and you can get it for free in the market.
