We all do appreciate how developers have been working hard to come up with new games inspired with several aspects of latest technologies.
As a result, Android owners are today having a plenty to choose from, ranging from platformers and puzzle games to shoot ‘em ups and even hardcore MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) titles.
In that vein, here is our latest roundup of some of the best new Android games that went live in the Play Store that you should be able to play comfortably without engaging in too many in-app purchases.
If you do love incremental games on the Android gaming platform, Spaceplan is one game that is going to meet all your gaming demands.
The game’s abstract objective is to accumulate potato power, which players then use to generate additional starch-based generators and initiate upgrades for available space spuds.
Although it was popular as a web-based idle cracker prototype, its refined version on the mobile gaming platforms is something worth experiencing.
As described by PCGamer:
“Spaceplan is the newest in the lineage of clicker games featuring food. Like a grade-school science project gone very wrong, Spaceplan finds you stuck in orbit around an unknown planet on a ship whose only power source is potatoes. You’re accompanied through the game by the ship’s Word Outputter, which, in current AI companion fashion, is full of snark while being more or less ambivalent to your survival.”
2. Battle Bay
Rovio’s Battle Bay is real-time multiplayer battle arena in your pocket. Players work together with a crew of four other ships to destroy their enemies in short multiplayer battle set amongst rolling waves and tropical locales.
The game comes with different types of ships, each with their unique specialty that fits a specific game style. For instance, the Defender is a good indestructible floating tank, whereas the.Enforcer is a good damage dealer
Although it may not be seen as the next big idea in gaming, but it’s one of the most strategic multiplayer experience on mobile gadgets.
As explained by Pocket Gamer:
“Battle Bay is a real-time multiplayer team battler where you drive your chosen ship around, hopefully take the tactical approach to the oncoming mayhem, and waste the other team in five-versus-five PvP.
Obviously it wouldn’t be much fun if you didn’t have a say in your arsenal, so there’s a few things to choose from. Aside from the five ships on offer, each with their own speciality, you’ve also got a variety of weapons, armour, items, abilities, and upgrades to keep you busy.”
3. Blitz Brigade: Rival Tactics
Blitz Brigade: Rival Tactics is the newest game in Gameloft’s Blitz Brigade series. This new title marks the entry of a high intensity shooter Blitz Brigade, but with things getting more tactical.
In Blitz Brigade: Rival Tactics, players are needed to deploy different units with unique strengths and weaknesses as they attempt to compete other players. There are lots of units to choose from so the tactics are endless.
So, how will you take down your opponents?
As explained by Android Police:
“The new Blitz Brigade: Rival Tactics from Gameloft has all the makings of a modern mobile game from the in-app purchases to the screaming guy app icon. This is, of course, a followup to the original Blitz Brigade, but it’s a very different kind of game.
Blitz Brigade: Rival Tactics shares very little with the last Blitz Brigade title. That was a shooter, and this is a simplified military strategy game. You square off with an opponent in a real-time battle. You place units on the battlefield, and they go about their business attacking whatever’s in range. So, it’s like Clash of Clans (and similar clones) in that you can’t directly control your troops.”
