OUYA is publishing games now: here's what's out there so far

After its assets were saved by Razer, OUYA is still hanging on in the Android gaming space. Instead of making games and gaming hardware, it's publishing Android TV titles now.

Published onSeptember 14, 2016

Mercenary Kings

OUYA unfortunately couldn’t translate its early hype into hardware sales of its Android-based console, but the game maker is now using its second lease on life, courtesy of Razer, to publish games for Android TV.

The latest game pushed out by publisher OUYA Global is Mercenary Kings, a 2D action game that might remind you a bit of BroForce or a Contra game. Originally release on Steam, and eventually on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, Mercenary Kings brought it’s over-the-top tale of an island assault and playful take on action movie tropes to Android TV last week.

Beyond its run and gun core, Mercenary Kings stuffs looting and crafting elements inside and in between its more than 100 missions. There’s a progression system in place and support for up to four players in co-op — of course, you can lone wolf it if you want.

OUYA Global has published three games to the Play Store so far
Back in July, OUYA Global released a moody 2D take on the battle arena genre. Originally released on Steam, ChargeShot pits up to four players against one another in galactic areas the quake with each blast and blow delivered inside of it. ChargeShot combatants are armed with deadly pulse cannon, shields for deflecting shots and jetpacks for rapid traversal of the grim arenas in which they fight to the death for a prize purse filled with credits. Because the battles are televised over galactic networks, there’s an announcer calling the play-by-plays as players blast each other’s blood and brains across the arena.

And the first title OUYA Global published to Google Play arrive back in June, bringing its retro-style ghosting and arcade gameplay to Android TV. Like its stablemates, Mimic Arena is meant for local multiplayer play and pits couch-side combatants against one another. Mimic Arena players are armed with a vast arsenal of weapons, but it’s the game’s mimic mechanic that makes it unique. Each action a player makes will be mimicked by a clone, which can make for some interesting strategies.

We’re sure OUYA isn’t done publishing new titles to the Play Store anytime soon, so head to the link attached below to access the OUYA Global developer page.
