There might be a few among you who care to know which games I instantly download, no matter what device I’m rocking. Okay, so maybe there are only two of you that actually wonder about this, but regardless, here’s my typical Android gaming routine.
Usually, when a new game comes out and I have to write about it, I will install the apk, then give it a whirl for a bit. If I don’t really like it, I will uninstall the game at the end of the day. For games that I do like, I find myself playing them nonstop throughout the day, and then when I get a new device (which is sometimes quite often), the games I enjoy will be one of the first things I download from Google Play.
So, the question is, which games do I find myself installing on different devices repeatedly? Unsurprisingly for myself, this list is hard to keep down to just five, as I usually have about 7 or 8 games that I like to have with me at all times, depending on my gaming mood.
For the sake of keeping this semi-short, here are the five games I can’t live without, complete with honorable mentions below. (more…)
While you wait for Flappy Bird to make a return, it may be worth looking elsewhere for an addictive substitute. Threes! is the latest contender for your gaming hours. It seems the winning formula for making a game these days is a simple goal, but difficult gameplay. No, there aren’t any levels here or graphics that will blow you away, but that’s the beauty of it.

Cards Against Humanity (CAH) is one of the brilliant card games of our time. Sure, groups of nerds, Google+ users, and whackjobs probably obsess over it too much, but with a couple of adult beverages and a group of friends that have darker sides you want to get to know better (or at least laugh at), it can be a ton of fun. Casts Against Civility is a Chromecast clone of the game that aims to get you and your friends using your Chromecast for something other than YouTube and a pirated collection of…stuff. (more…)
As expected, the folks behind the Humble Bundle 4 added three new titles to their pay-what-you-want package of games that already included Badland, Breach & Clear, Catan, Riptide GP2, Vector, and Zombie Gunship. As long as you pay over the average price, which at the time of this posting sits at $3.75, you get all of the previously mentioned games plus OLO, Color Sheep, and Gunslugs. (more…)
A little more than a month ago, the world weeped as Flappy Bird made an exit for both Android and iOS devices. Spawning countless clones, it almost feels as if the game never left, but none of the copies could ever match the world’s most
beloved hated game. (more…)
Dubstep fans who enjoy having their faces melted by insane bass drops, you should know that Skrillex has a new full-length album coming. If you need yourself early access to the album, titled Recess, you can stream it via a new game for Android, Alien Ride. (more…)
While downloading PuzzleBits, a new game on Google Play, I’ll admit I was expecting a somewhat childish puzzle game from the look of the screenshots. Once I got to the Octopus round (the second round), however, I could feel the frustration building up inside of me. Why I couldn’t easily figure out this silly animal puzzle, I will never know.
Regardless of my inabilities, PuzzleBits is a light-hearted, yet challenging game from Noodlecake Studios, the same developers that gave us Mikey Shorts, Punch Quest, and League of Evil. (more…)
A new game hit Google Play this afternoon, titled Mount & Blade. If you are into epic desktop RPG titles, then you might have heard of this game, as it is actually quite popular among those who wish they lived in medieval times. This is a full desktop port, and is currently exclusive to just Tegra 4-powered devices, such as the NVIDIA SHIELD. (more…)
