Here we are at the end of another week, which means it’s time to collect the best games that have hit the Play Store in the past seven days. There have been a few, but narrowing them down to five has proven to be quite easy.
We’ve got JRPG reboots, we’ve got more than the normal amount of platformer games, and we’ve got a game that mixes up shooting and running a cafe, because of course it does.
You can click on the name of the games below to go directly to the Google Play Store and download them. Unless otherwise stated, the games are premium.
A smart and fast-paced platformer game with deep customization options and a variety of different challenges to keep you on your toes. You can also play around with the difficulty settings. The demo version of the game is free and you can unlock the rest with an IAP.
The latest Final Fantasy game to get the re-boot-makeover treatment. This is where a lot of the ideas that brought the show to life really started to come to life, and it’s as close to playing the original as you’re likely to get without finding an SNES.
A mix of hellish shooter, relationship simulation, RPG and base builder. It’s weird, but it all manages to blend together to make something unique and entertaining. The shot, which is the bulk of the game, is rad. This is free with IAPs.
A robust platform game with a unique style that will challenge your fingers and brain. There’s puzzle solving, split second jumping, and more. It’s free to play with the ads.
A brightly colored bouncy shooter and platformer. If you like Downwell or its ilk, here you are going to find something that will put a smile on your arcade-hungry face. It’s a challenge in all good manners, and the perfect way to spend some time.
