The summer may be getting hotter, but the Android games are getting better. We’re back again, with this week’s edition of the Top 10 New Android Games of the Week and there was a lot to like this week if you’re a gamer. From Spider-Man to Puddles and Future prediction… there are a lot of great choices if you like to game. Without further ado, we proudly present our picks for the Top 10 New Android Games of the past Week…
If you like old-school RPG’s we got a great (and funny) one this week with Cthulhu Saves the World. You’ll have to put together a crack(ed) team of heroes to try and get Cthulhu’s powers back by making him a hero which breaks a terrible curse. Why do you do this? So Cthulhu can do what Cthulhu does… end the world. It’s an awesome game, especially if ya’ dig 16-bit Rpg’s. You can get TinkerHouse Games Cthulhu Saves the World for $1.99 on Google Play.
Hothead games got our attention a few months back with its “Big Win” Sports games, and they’ve just released another one with Big Win Baseball for Android. If you like building a mega-team to stomp your competition then you should head on over to Google Play and pick this one up for free.
Everyone’s favorite web-slinger made an appearance this week as Gameloft released it’s highly anticipated the Amazing Spider-Man game. The game follows the events of the movie, and it’s another top notch movie tie-in game from Gameloft. It’s a great looking game, and you can pick it up for $6.99 on Google Play.
One-Button puzzle games are very popular, and Ichi from Stolen Couch Games is an awesome new example of the quick-play puzzle genre. You’ll have to collect golden rings by using teleporters, breaking blocks, and rotating objects; there’s also a level editor which further extends the gameplay. If you enjoy a good puzzler Ichi is a game you won’t want to miss. There’s a free version to try while the full version of Ichi will only set you back $0.99.
5. Fire Jumpers
Jumping into fire’s usually wouldn’t be considered fun unless you’re playing Fire Jumpers that is. The new game from Redblox games lets you take on wildfires by commanding a crack team of fire fighting units on the ground and in the air. There’s a free version of the game you can try to get a feel for things, and the full version is well worth the $1.93 price tag.
6. Puddle THD
Puddle THD was released this week, and it’s the most fun I’ve had with liquid on my phone since Sprinkle was released last year. Instead of squirting liquid, you’ll have to guide the puddle of fluid through all sorts of environments by tilting your phone left and right. It’s a very cool game and there’s a lite version you can try before paying $4.99 for the whole shebang.
7. Epic Raiders
Gamevil dropped an interesting game this week with Epic Raiders which is a free to play Party style RPG. You and your party get to battle monsters and warlords as you customize your team and battle to save the princess. I haven’t gotten to play this one yet, but it looks like winner. You can check out Epic Raiders for free on Google Play.
8. I, Oracle
Big Blue Bubble released a very interesting title earlier this week called I, Oracle. As the name implies you are an Oracle of sorts who tries to predict the future, and you’ll gain followers for every answer you get correct. Its half trivia game, half future prediction and after playing it on and off for a week I’m still unsure what to think of it. You can check out I, Oracle for yourself on Google Play for the low price of free.
Want to catch them all? That’s what you’ll be asking yourself when you fire up Monster Galaxy from Gaia Interactive. This monster catching game is definitely reminiscent of Pokémon, and it’s quite a bit of fun if you’re into Monster catching & battling. You can try to catch them all on Google Play for free.
Square Enix has a surprise up its sleeve this week when they released the revamped version of Final Fantasy III for Android. It has everything you know and remember from the original, but has been optimized and upgraded for Android devices. The game also has a hefty price tag at a whopping $15.99 so it will be interested to see how it does at this high of a price point. If you can run it and afford it, you can pick up Final Fantasy III on Google Play.
