Aliens, knights, zombies, celestial bodies, animals, jelly, goo — name it, there’s most likely an Android game either about it or involving it.  Android game app developers don’t have a Pause button, you know, and they’re working hard to bring you the best and the most engaging games for your Android device.

Here are some of the really cool and awesome ones that we discovered during the first half of October.  We thought you’d like them as much as we did.  Some of them are free, others cost a small fee, but all worth the time you waste in playing them.

Go ahead, explore never-heard-of lands, and conquer obstacles in some of the best new Android games in the past two weeks.

Wild Blood

After Lancelot and Guinevere’s love affair was revealed, King Arthur went mad. The King asked the witch Morgana to open the gates of the dark side to destroy Albion and kidnap Guinevere. You must now set foot as the brave Lancelot, rescue your love, and restore Albion in the fun and action filled game of Gameloft’s Wild Blood. Powered by Unreal technology, the game lets you immerse in high definition scenes of the once peaceful Albion, perform stunning skills, and enjoy enhanced character animations. You will be also able to use three weapons in the game: a sword, twin axes, and a bow, and customize your hero’s build. If you’re tired of fighting the dark forces, you can also battle your fellow humans in the game’s multiplayer mode. Restore Albion and rescue Guinevere from the grasp of King Arthur and Morgana in the Wild Blood game, available for US$7.00 at the Google Play Store.

Rayman Jungle Run

When I was young, I was able to play the classic Rayman game on the Play Station 1. Ubisoft Entertainment was kind enough to bring Rayman to Android devices. Rayman Jungle Run is a fun running game where you control Rayman and help him reach the finish point. You will have to jump, glide, cling to walls, bounce, and punch enemies until you make it to the finish line. For extra points, collect all the flying bugs to earn a devil’s tooth which will unlock a difficult level. You can get this fun, addicting, and ads-free running adventure game for the about US$3.00 from the Google Play Store.

Our alien friends aren’t as friendly as we hoped. They have taken over Earth, killing any humanoid form in their path. Thankfully, Blowfish Studios Ltd sent a dropship named “Salvation” to rescue all remaining survivors. Razor Salvation THD lets you become the captain of the Salvation to rescue human survivors and, at the same time, kill incoming invaders. Aside from facing your foreign foes, you will also meet zombies and mutated humans, hungry for some human flesh. Use 8 different types of weapons to welcome your foreign invaders.

Helidroid 3D : Full Edition

You can find a lot of mini remote-controlled helicopter toys in toy shops. Fortunately, you don’t need to buy one to enjoy flying a mini helicopter since you can have a virtual helicopter in Go-ox Game’s Helidroid 3D : Full Edition. This game lets you control a virtual RC helicopter and perform a variety of missions. You will need to navigate your helicopter on the desk, drive through holes, land on top of a moving train, and shoot soda cans with your rockets. You can control the helicopter by tilting your device or by using the virtual buttons. The ad-supported Helidroid 3D : Full Edition can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store.
