You can watch the videos on YouTube from previous months by clicking here! You can also check out our picks for the best new Android games for 2019 in the video above! 

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Price: $2.99

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is a mobile port of the PlayStation classic. It features the same retro graphics and platforming charm that makes the series so popular among platformer fans. However, this one comes with on-screen controls. It’s the full game so there are no issues there. Additionally, this version comes with full controller support, a new continue feature, achievements, and it’s available in six languages. The touch controls are occasionally shaky, but it’s otherwise an excellent port of a classic game.

Dragon Quest of the Stars

Price: Free to play / $9 per month

Dragon Quest of the Stars is a new free to play game set in the Dragon Quest universe. The game features turn-by-turn combat in a near first person view. You can summon a bunch of characters, level them up, and use their various skills in battle. Additionally, there is a four person online multiplayer and other features. It’s a Square Enix gacha game so of course it’s better than most others. There is also a premium subscription service that grants faster and more granular auto battling, a once-per-day refill on energy, and some other perks.

Dragon Raja

Price: Free to play

Dragon Raja is an open world sandbox game with some MMORPG mechanics. However, it’s not actually an MMORPG. Players explore a world with day and night cycles along with active weather. They also complete quests, explore some more, and do combat with opponents. The combat system in particular is quite good andt he online PvP is interesting, at least for a while. There are some other game modes to explore as well. It’s hard to cleanly define this game, but the mechanics and player customization is actually not bad.

Love Live! All Stars

Price: Free to play

Love Live! All Stars is an idol game based on the anime of the same name. It defines itself as a rhythm-action RPG and it has elements of all of those genres. Players engage in light rhythm mechanics to put on a good show and level up their characters. The learning curve is a bit steep at first, but it’s not bad once you really get into it. We recommend making sure your team continues to grow, otherwise the game is way harder than it needs to be.

Om Nom: Run

Price: Free to play

Om Nom: Run is the latest game from ZeptoLab, developers of the popular Cut the Rope series. This time, they put their cute little green monster in an endless runner. It feels like most other endless runners in terms of pure mechanics. You get boosts and power-ups and complete as many missions as you can. There are some Cut the Rope inspired elements there to help separate it from the pack. It’s a family friendly game even if the ads can be annoying sometimes. We recommend password protecting purchases on the Play Store to avoid any unintentional purchases if you let your toddler play the game.


Price: Free to play

RaceCraft actually isn’t a racing game. Instead, it’s a track builder sim of sorts with some racing elements. Players build their own tracks and share them with the community. You can also share your tracks with friends. The track building is the main element, though, and there are a ton of customization options on that front. Some other features include a single or two-player race mode, very simple racing mechanics, and various car upgrades for even more speed. There are some small omissions in the multiplayer setup, but otherwise the game runs pretty well.

The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross

Price: Free to play

The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross is a gacha mobile RPG from the popular anime series on Netflix. It’s not all that unique in terms of mechanics. You get characters, level them up, and use their abilities in combat. However, the game does have smooth combat mechanics and excellent cut scenes. Both of those elements help drive the game forward. Players also get online PvP, an online co-op mode, and character customization on a per-character basis. There is even a simple AR mode to play with the characters a bit.

Scrabble GO

Price: Free to play / $5 per month

Scrabble GO is the new official Scrabble game for mobile. It uses the official board, tiles, rules, and dictionary. There are also a variety of game modes that make decent use of the official game. There is the classic duel as two players go head to head. There is also a word drop game, a tumbler game for anagram fans, and a rush mode where you basically try to beat your best score. You also get a practic emode, various boosts and hints, and a stat tracker. There is honestly a lot here even if the presentation leaves a little bit to be desired. There is a subscription service to turn off ads and give you some extra stuff for about $5 per month, but whether it’s worth it or not is up to you.

Snoopy Puzzle Journey

Price: Free to play

Snoopy Puzzle Journey is a match-three style game with a Peanuts theme. It plays like most other match-three games. You move pieces around the game board until three or more tiles match up. They disappear and new tiles drop in to fill the blank space. The game also features a story mode, various ways to customize Snoopy, and an extra game mode with more unlockable content. It’s good for both kids and adults as well despite its free to play price tag.

Teamfight Tactics

Price: Free to play

Teamfight Tactics is a new auto-battle (auto-chess) game from Riot Games. It features a roster of League of Legends champions that you summon in massive battle royales with other players. You need a decent amount of strategy along with a little bit of luck, but the game is fun to play. Additionally, it features cross-platform support with the PC version and it boasts a non pay-to-win game play style. There are some bugs here and there but we believe they will be ironed out in future updates.
