August has been a fantastic month to be a gamer on Android, with a few big-time titles seeing their release onto Google Play. PC gamers were treated to a couple of Steam titles making their way to Android, which allows them to get out from behind the desk and play those games wherever they see fit.
For those who might be curious, you don’t have to worry about seeing Swing Copters on this list, as that game might get my vote for worst game of the century.
Below are the Top 5 Android Games for August of 2014.
1. Five Nights at Freddy’s (Play Link: $2.99)
This official port of a horror survival game was recently pushed to Google Play, making sure you can pee your pants whenever you have your phone near you. In the game, you play as a night time watch guard in a children’s pizza party shack, but watch out for robots dressed as lovable stuffed animals. If they see you at night, you’re dead.
The game has garnered a huge following of YouTubers who post their reactions while playing the game. And for only $2.99, if you enjoy horror titles, you can’t go wrong with this pickup.
2. ALONE… (Play Link: $2.49)
ALONE… puts you in the cockpit of a rocket ship, blasting its way through space debris. The main goal of the game is make it as far as you can without crashing into rocks, and let me tell you, it is not an easy task. However, the further you go, the more cool stuff you get to unlock through the game.
The title features a well-developed aesthetic, as well as an excellent soundtrack for speeding through space. While the controls may take a couple of deaths to get used to, the $2.49 price tag is well justified.
3. Unpossible (Play Link: $1.99)
Unpossible reminds me a lot of Impossible Road, but with less impossible. In the game, you zoom down a dark track, filled with changing obstacles. As you progress down the track, things start going faster, making it much harder to react to what is coming next.
The game has a real TRON look to it, with a dark landscape coupled with neon-bright lights coming from all angles. It’s quite pretty, actually. For only $1.99, this game can easily eat up your free time as you try to get further and further down the track.
4. Surgeon Simulator (Play Link: $5.99)
In Surgeon Simulator, one of my all-time favorite comedic games, you play as a surgeon who must perform some of the most intense operations right out of med school. What adds to its comedic value are the controls, which are nearly impossible to figure out.
Using a mixture of swipes, tapes, and pinches, you control tools that will bash your patient’s organs, crack their bones, and potentially save their life at the same time. While it does have a steep price of $5.99, this highly-developed title demands every penny of that $6.
5. Kapsula (Play Link: $1.99)
Possibly the most frustrating of the five titles listed this month, Kapsula is quite the challenge. In the game, you play as a small capsule that zooms down a road.
While driving, you connect to other capsules, but must find a way to disconnect yourself from the other capsules you pick up before crashing into obstacles. You can smash them into the same-colored capsules, or bash them into a same-colored wall. However, if it’s not the same color, you blow up and have to start all over.
The game costs only $1.99, so I highly recommend it as a time waster.
