You can also check out our picks for the best new Android games released in all of 2021.

The best new Android games from December 2021

Alien: Isolation

Price: $14.99

Alien: Isolation is a new horror-survival game. It’s a mobile port of an existing console and PC game. Luckily, it’s an excellent port. The game features excellent graphics, very good controls, and more. The story follows Amanda Ripley as she tracks down what happened to her mother. There, she encounters trouble. Players run and hide from the Alien as it tries to hunt you down. It’s the best horror game to come out on mobile in the last couple of years.

Cut the Rope: Blast

Price: Free to play

Cut the Rope: Blast is a match-three game featuring the adorable Om Nom. It plays like most match-three games. You match up cubes, they pop, and you continue until you clear the level. There are power-ups to help you get through it, daily rewards, and a ton of levels. There is also a co-op mode if you want to play with friends. It’s nothing terribly special in the genre, but it’s kid-friendly, easy to play, and there is a lot to do.

Downhill Smash

Price: Free to play

Downhill Smash is the latest game from ZeptoLab, publishers of the original Cut the Rope games. This one is decidedly more graphic than most games by ZeptoLab. You roll a boulder down a hill and crush all the monsters in your way. It boasts various weapons to make zombie killing faster and more efficient along with bosses, plenty of levels, and more. It’s not a bad game, although the in-game upgrades are rather expensive if you decide to spend real money on them.

Dynasty Origins: Conquest

Price: Free to play

Dynasty Origins: Conquest is the second game in the Dynasty Origins series. It’s a card strategy game with some other game elements. Players collect cards and then use them to create formations to do battle with opponents. The various units you get can be upgraded over time to make them more powerful. It focuses quite a bit on its online PvP matchups, but there are other things to do as well. It’s decent for what it is, even if the microtransaction count is a little high.

Fantasy Life Online

Price: Free to play

Fantasy Life Online is the sequel to the original Fantasy Life. It has quite a few gameplay elements. You can play the role of a fighter, a gatherer, or a manufacturer and there are various abilities and tasks to complete as each one. Players can also switch jobs in case they don’t like the one they chose initially. The game also boasts cooperative play with up to four players, a village building mechanic, RPG elements, a story, and more. It’s a rather large game and it should keep you busy for a while. The only thing we didn’t like were the overly expensive microtransactions.

Hatsune Miku: Colorful Stage

Price: Free to play

Hatsune Miku: Colorful Stage is yet another music game featuring the popular Japanese Vocaloid. This one is a rhythm game with pretty standard rhythm mechanics. A song plays and you tap, hold, and swipe to hit all the notes. The game also includes a story to play through, five difficulty levels, a bunch of characters to collect, and various customizations to unlock. The song selection is exclusively Vocaloid, at least for now, but the songs are pretty catchy.

Kingdom Two Crowns

Price: $6.99

Kingdom Two Crowns calls itself a 2D micro-strategy game. Players play the role of a monarch as they build their kingdom up from basically scratch. There is a campaign mode to play through along with a co-op mode so you can play with friends. Finally, the game also includes three total settings. The first is medieval, the second is a place called the Dead Lands, and the third is feudal Japan. It’s a premium game so there are no worries about in-app purchases gumming up the works.

Nobodies: After Death

Price: Free / Up to $9.99

Nobodies: After Death is a puzzle-adventure game about a cleaner for a secret government intelligence agency. Your role in every mission is to clean up the evidence of the activities of your agency. There are many murders to cover up, various challenges to overcome, and the game boasts multiple solutions to each puzzle so players can play how they want. The first game, Nobodies: Murder Cleaner, is also pretty good.

Postknight 2

Price: Free to play

Postknight 2 is yet another sequel released in December 2021. This one is for Postknight, a popular adventure RPG from years ago. You play the role of a delivery person from your trainee stage up through S-Rank. The game has you delivering and protecting packages for folks. The combat is a bit basic but still fun. There are also various combo skills and strategies to learn as you play. There are some bugs along with long load times so we’re hoping the developers tune this one up in future updates.

Rocket League Sideswipe

Price: Free to play

Rocket League Sideswipe is a 2D mobile version of the popular soccer game. The mechanics are mostly the same for fans of the series. You drive your car into a soccer ball to score or into your opponents so they can’t score. You also play soccer with cars. It’s kind of a neat idea. In any case, the game features 1v1 and 2v2 PvP along with a basketball (Hoops) mode for a bit of variety. There are also things to earn, customizations to unlock, and offline matches are available as well. It’s surprisingly good if you like clean arcade fun.
