You’ll get 50 story puzzles and each one will allow you to manipulate the level to your advantage. There is a story line for those who like that sort of thing. You can buy the game for $4.99 and you can buy hints with in-app purchases.

You’ll be able to customize your character, including which weapon they use, and your goal will be to become the Olympic champion. A PvP mode is present where you can duel your friends if you want to. It’s a freemium game, but it’s not half bad.

It’s A Space Thing is a completely free arcade shooter with a little bit of retro charm. In this one, you’ll be playing as a character on the ground and shooting at an opponent floating above you. Shields and weapons will be your tools of destruction and you’ll need some reflexes to make it through. It’s a surprisingly challenging game. It also features boss battles, a local multiplayer mode, and power ups to make things easier. It may not seem like much, but it also has literally no price tag so you can’t ask for much more than this.

It’s a puzzle-shooter through and through and you’ll be doing ground fights as well as aerial flights in space. It’s an episodic adventure so you’ll have to purchase each chapter as an in-app purchase, but you get the first one for free.

the manga works best new android gamesThe Manga Works

[Price: $4.99]
The Manga Works is the latest strategy-simulation game out of Kairosoft, developers of games like Game Dev Story and Ninja Village. In this game, you’ll be tasked with managing a manga studio. You’ll have to find new and exciting ideas, meet publishing deadlines, and win various awards to become the biggest, most profitable manga studio ever. It plays a lot like Game Dev Studio so fans of that game know what they’re getting into with this one. It’s a lot of fun and has no in-app purchases, but do keep in mind that it also doesn’t support cloud saving. You can also only play the game in portrait mode so it isn’t great for tablets.

maiden legacy of the beast best new android gamesMaiden: Legacy of the Beast

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Maiden: Legacy of the Beast is the latest game to feature a celebrity and it’s actually not half bad. This one focuses around the music of Iron Maiden and a lot of the game’s characters and elements come from lyrics in some of their popular songs. In terms of game play, it’s essentially a hack-and-slash fighter where you’ll collect various artifacts and items to level up your characters. It’s a freemium game through-and-through so if you don’t like those, then you probably won’t like this one either.

mobius final fantasy best new android gamesMobius Final Fantasy

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Mobius Final Fantasy is the latest freemium Final Fantasy game in the franchise. You’ll start the game as a character who is among a group that have washed up on shore without a memory. One of you is supposed to become the Hero of Light to save the world from its woes. It features decent graphics and game play, a job system so you can change up your specializations, and an actual story line which is rare for a freemium game. It’s played entirely in portrait mode, although we wish there were a landscape mode as well. It’s freemium so you can pick it up for free if you want to. Many Final Fantasy fans consider this one of the better freemium games of the franchise.

reign best new android gamesReigns

[Price: $2.99]
Reigns is a unique little card game where you get to rule a kingdom. Each scenario is played out on a card and, similar to Tinder, you can swipe one way or the other to determine which moves you make. Every year brings a new set of decisions that you’ll have to make and each one has the potential to keep you on the throne or cause you to be overthrown. If you get overthrown, you’ll have to start over because you’ve lost the game. It’s $2.99 with no in-app purchases and it’s a fun little time killer. It also plays pretty well on older or lower end devices.
