This weeks list offers up a few cool indie titles, along with the release of a highly anticipated FPS game. There’s a little something for everyone, so sit back, relax, and enjoy our picks for the Top 10 Android Games of the week…
1. Eufloria HD
Eufloria has been out for a while now, and it’s available on damn near every platform you can imagine. It made its way to Android about a month ago with the Humble Bundle, and now it’s live on Google Play. It’s one of the best artistic games I’ve ever played, and it’s well worth a look if you haven’t played it yet. You can pick up Eufloria HD for $4.99 on Google Play.
Orcs are a staple of any good fantasy game, and Epix – Epic Pixel Heroes has them in droves. We’re not talking about a few hundred Orcs either as Epix lets you duke it out against thousands of the vile creatures in over 500 levels. It’s a fast-paced quick play game that’s a lot of fun and you can pick it up for free on Google Play.
3. Contre Jour
Contre Jour is a quirky little puzzler that’s been getting a lot of attention lately. This physics-based puzzler takes you on a trippy journey as you try to make it through a world made of light and darkness. If you like you’re puzzlers with an artistic flair you’ll definitely want to give this one a look. Contre Jour can be yours for $1.99.
If you’re into FPS games you’re probably already playing Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour. The game was released earlier in the week, and then re-released, and now some users are getting downloading errors. I’m not a huge fan of mobile FPS games, but I did play this one briefly on a friend’s device and must admit it’s a sexy looking game. If you want to give it a go you can pick up Gameloft’s Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour for $6.99 on Google Play.
HeroCraft dropped an interesting new hex puzzle game this week with Rocket Island. It’s a tale of rockets, sinking islands, and strategery. You’ll have to send rockets full of people to the moon in order to save them from a sinking island as you battle cosmic, tidal, and seismic disasters. It’s a slick looking strategy game and it’s free to download on Google Play.
The Gentleman is an interesting new game that revolves around a missing monocle. The Gentleman must get it back as a Gentleman isn’t really a Gentleman unless he has a proper monocle, and not just any monocle will do. If you’re curious about The Gentleman and his missing monocle you can help him find it for only $0.99.
Looking for an adventure full of mystery, intrigue, and electricity? If so you may want to take a look at Tesla’s Electric Mist from iCOOLgeeks. It’s a point-and-click adventure game that takes you back in time to solve a mystery and it involves Nikola Tesla… can you say kick ass? You can pick up Tesla’s Electric Mist for $1.99 on Google Play.
Astronaut Catcher is a new puzzle game from the minds at RV Appstudios that lets you play catch with an Astronaut… sort of. You’ll have to create whirpools to catch astronauts, but you’ll want to match like colored ones which tends to make things tricky. It has a few different modes of play, colorful graphics, and best of all it’s free!
9. The PyraPlex
Kairosoft goes Egyptian in their latest game as you’ll get to build a shopping center in an ancient pyramid. Thing Mega-Mall story in ancient Egypt and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what you’re in for. No demo version of The PyraPlex is available at this time, but the full version will only set you back $4.99.
They came…they saw… they ate a lot of Condos. The monsters are back and they’re hungrier than ever in Super Monsters Ate My Condo! The gameplay stays the same, but there are a few new condos and you’ll get some hats…yup hats. If you enjoyed the first game you’ll definitely dig this one, and it’s free to download on Google Play.
