You can watch the videos on YouTube from previous months by clicking here! You can also check out our picks for the best new Android games for 2018 in the video above!
Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements is a builder simulation game with strategy elements. Instead of building a city or a kingdom as usual, you build a meth lab. You build your base you normally would in a game like this. It produces resources and you use them to defend yourself from rivals. You can expand your lab as you grow, upgrade various things, and all of that. It’s not too dissimilar from kingdom building mobile games and the freemium elements are a tad aggressive. Otherwise, it’s serviceable and fun for fans of the franchise.
Durango: Wild Lands is a new MMO with strategy elements, plenty of exploration, and other content. The game also includes a multiplayer with both cooperative and competitive play if you want to go either route. The game also features dinosaurs and people like dinosaurs. There are some undesirable freemium elements, but by and large people seem to enjoy this one. There is no way to play this one offline.
Farm Punks is the latest game from Noodlecake Studios, publishers of Alto’s Adventure and Alto’s Odyssey. This game is nothing like those games. It’s a runner where you roll fruit down a hill and try to earn as much money as you can for it. You earn money the further you roll before the time limit runs out. It’s a simple arcade game with simple mechanics. It’s also family friendly and easy to play.
Harry Potter: Wizard’s Unite is the latest AR game from Niantic, makers of Ingress and Pokemon Go. This game takes place in the same game world as the others. That means it takes place in the real world. Players move between stops to reveal Traces of magic and help alleviate the woes of the game world. Those who played Pokemon Go and Ingress kind of already know what the basics of this game feel like. However, it’s an entirely different adventure with some unique mechanics.
Nonstop Knight 2 is the next game in the somewhat popular franchise. The game has runner, beat ’em up, and RPG elements much like its predecessors. You run through levels until you lose. You then level up, equip all the new gear you received, and go at it again. Players usually get a little further each time. The game also includes weekly tournaments, a variety of gear and skills to unlock, and more. It’s a good, quick arcade game.
Planet Sling is another new arcade runner style game. You slingshot your way around planets to make it to the next planet. The game continues until you miss a planet. The game features a couple of game modes, simple one touch controls, and a variety of ships to unlock. It doesn’t have a lot to it and the game play mechanics are quite simple. However, the game is free with no ads and the content is family friendly.
Shop Titans is a builder simulation game about a character who runs a shop. You build your shop, craft various items, sell those items to heroes, and fill orders for the townsfolk. The game also features social elements, the ability to recruit your own heroes for various adventures, and you can trade with other players. This game has a subscription that adds a bunch of extras and you can pay a bunch of money for an engineer to make things go even faster. However, we don’t recommend those, we didn’t use them when we played the game, and it’s not necessary to have a good time.
Talion is a new game from GamEvil. It’s an MMORPG with a surprisingly decent amount of content. There is the usual quest line stuff along with cooperative content such as raid bosses. However, this game also includes a 20 versus 20 PvP mode and we thought that was kind of cool. The graphics, controls, and mechanics are pretty standard fair for the genre and the level of customization for your character is pretty good. The online PvP matchmaking could use some work and freemium MMORPGs are always a step below, but there are good things about this game too.
Toy Story Drop is a new match-three game set in the Toy Story universe. It’s a promotional game for the new Toy Story movie. You play through the game and complete levels like normal. Each completion unlocks a new story scene from one of the four movies. The game isn’t too different from your usual match-three fair, but it has been a while since a big game launched in this genre. It’s family friendly, it gets progressively harder, and it has Toy Story in it.
Warriors of Waterdeep is a new mobile Dungeons and Dragons RPG. It plays like most mobile RPGs, though. You can assemble a team of heroes to do battle against the villains. There is a campaign to play through, plenty of gear to collect, characters to upgrade, and more. It features the usual array of mechanics like daily rewards for logging in as well. It’s really not bad as far as mobile RPGs go. However, it does carry the Dungeons and Dragons name and doesn’t have a lot of Dungeons and Dragons character customization so, you know, it could’ve been better.
