Android gaming is getting bigger and better with time and it seems there is always a slew of new titles coming to Google Play. Whether you’re a casual gamer or you want something with a beat more meat on its bones, there’s usually a game coming out to suit everyone’s taste. Let’s have a look at the best new Android games from the last month.
Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location is the latest game in one of the most popular horror franchises in gaming. You play as a security guard who must keep watch over some possessed animatronics. There are also some new mechanics to give the game a fresher feel. Along with the five nights of standing guard, there is also a mini-game, multiple endings, and a custom night.
Geometry Dash World is a simple little platformer game. You’ll play as a little square and your goal will be to jump around, avoid obstacles, and make it to the end. It has a pretty decent soundtrack, some fun mechanics, and a practice mode if you need help. You can also play user-generated levels, play daily quests, and a lot more. This is also one of a few decent games that are free to download and also has no in-app purchases.
Grumpy Cat’s Worst Game Ever is a clear attempt to cash in on an Internet meme. Thankfully the game is actually pretty fun to play. It features a variety of mini-games that you can play to pass the time. There’s a fishing game, a board chopping game, a whack-a-mole game, and others. It also has some delightful chiptune music along with leaderboard support.
# 4 The Little Fox
The Little Fox is an infinite runner with a unique premise. The developers boast that it’s the first infinite runner to use a hexagonal playing field. That means you’ll have more than just a couple of directions that you can go. It features simple controls, colorful graphics, and an adorable little fox as the main character. It runs pretty well and it’s fun to play. However, some have complained about the advertising and there are a few bugs here and there.
# 5 Mega Man 1-6
Capcom released the first six Mega Man games on Android. These are ports of their originals and they are the original games with touch screen controls laid over top. All six games cost the same and none of them have in-app purchases. Unfortunately, all six games do have some frame rate issues that Capcom claims to be looking into. Assuming they get these games fixed, they are all excellent platformers for mobile. If not, then it was wrong to put these games here and we apologize.
# 6 Ookujira
Ookujira is a platformer where you play as a whale. This game is based on the theme that aliens have invaded earth and human technology can’t stop them. Your job is to smash buildings as a giant whale for some reason. Weird logic aside, the game is actually pretty fun. It features colorful graphics, easy controls, a couple of different play modes, and more. It’s a freemium game. It’s good for killing some time.
