Star Nomad 2 and Nomads of the Fallen Star

Price: $7.99 each
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Nomads of the Fallen Star and Star Nomad 2 are new releases from Halfgeek. They are both strategy games with survival, sandbox, and RPG elements. Players scavenge for supplies, gear, and other items and there is a trading system to get those things as well. The combat is turn-by-turn strategy style without a ton of surprises. You can also level up your characters and make them more powerful. The games are a bit expensive, but strategy sandbox fans may enjoy them quite a bit.

Splash and Bubbles

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Splash and Bubbles is a companion app by PBS Kids. The app has a bunch of videos and songs directly from the show. In addition, the app syncs with episodes of the show for a more immersive experience for parents. Underneath that is a swath of various factoids about the ocean, including plant and animal life. It works okay as a standalone app, but you don't get the full experience unless you watch the show as well. The app is entirely free with no in-app purchases.

Reality Clash

Price: Freemium
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Reality Clash is an augmented reality arcade combat game. The unique premise has you hunting down and dueling other real life players in the real world. You find such players, challenge them to a duel, and then engage in combat. You can do this in the comfort of your own home with friends or at the park with strangers. Players can also fight bots in case you can't find anyone around you. We're not sure if it has everything it needs to make it big, but it's definitely an interesting concept.

Pixtica

Price: Free / Up to $3.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Pixtica is a camera app with a bunch of nifty features. Some of the features include live filters, an above average manual mode, exposure control, a slew of photo options like a panorama mode, and even stuff like slow motion (if your phone supports it). You can even record GIFs with this one. The HDR mode is acceptable and the image quality is decent. It probably won't replace your stock camera app in most scenarios but it's not a bad third party option.

SpellForce

Price: $7.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
SpellForce is a made-for-mobile version of the critically acclaimed PC game. It's a strategy game with RPG elements, above average graphics, and tons of content to play through. Players explore the game's world, create an empire, and do battle with the forces of evil like most high fantasy style games. It's also a premium game with no freemium elements whatsoever. It has a few bugs here and there and players complained about the lack of variance in different campaigns. Otherwise, people seem to like it.
