September has come and gone this year, but to recap the month, there are a few great games that were published during those 30 days. Gameloft continued its streak of pumping out well-developed driving games, while indie developers gave us an indie smash hit focused on goats.
In the list, which is not in any order of importance or awesomeness, we highlight five games that had the most impact on ourselves as Android gamers. We try not too give to much love to any one genre of game, so there is a racing game, two platformer games, an open world game, and a survival game. In this list, there is at least one title you should enjoy.
Below is our list of the Top 5 Android Games for the month of September.
1. Asphalt Overdrive (Play Link: Free)
Gameloft is back at it with the release of Asphalt Overdrive onto Android. In the game, which is set in a modern adaptation of the 80s, you race sexy import cars that were the cream of the crop back in the day, including the Lamborghini Countach and Ferrari Testarossa. Much like Gameloft’s other racing titles, it won’t be the most realistic game you have ever played, but at the speed you travel in the environments they set you in, you will come to find out that it is better off being a bit more cartoonish.
The game is free to download through Google Play, but does feature IAPs for more cars to purchase in-game.
2. Hellraid: The Escape (Play Link: $2.99)
For lovers of games where you must work your way through countless challenges in order to escape an evil place, Hellraid: The Escape is the ultimate game for you. Set in an evil sorcerer’s dungeon, you must fight your way through Hell, defeating demons, figuring out difficult puzzles, and trying not to lose your lunch over the horrible acts of torture you witness. The game is sort of dark, but for a few of you, that’s probably a bonus.
The app costs $2.99 in Google Play and features no in-app purchases or pay-to-win elements.
3. Oscura: Second Shadow (Play Link: $3.51 )
A sequel to the original Oscura which launched for Android years ago, the developers show their visionary growth in Oscura: Second Shadow. The game is a platformer, based on a rodent hero who must overcome the darkness in his land. While there are plenty of evil-looking baddies, you must make sure not to fight them, as any encounter will leave you dead. Instead, use your time-warping skills to out maneuver them, reaching the end of levels with as many light crystals as you can gather.
The game costs $3.51 in Google Play, a good price for this well developed title.
As a viral smash hit title, Goat Simulator puts you in the hooves of a crazy goat, bent on destroying the world. However, we aren’t talking world domination here. Instead, we are talking about causing car accidents, blowing up houses and gas stations, while causing as much mayhem as possible with our eerily stretchable tongue. The game is a serious trip for animal lovers.
Priced at $4.99, the game promises you hours of crazy antics while playing as an adorable goat.
5. Unmechanical (Play Link: $2.99)
Another platformer to launch onto Google Play this past month is Unmechanical. In this title, you play as a little helicopter robot who must solve puzzles made from various machinery inside of a living world. You must collect certain pieces such as fuses, light sources, and gears to overcome the obstacles that await you. Set in a well-designed world coupled with cool music, Unmechanical is a great game for kids and adults.
Priced at $2.99, you can’t go wrong here.
