It’s still Sunday. In the world of Droid Gamers, this can only mean one thing: a summary of the most interesting titles and updates of the week.
Everything is happening in Pokemon City this week, with announcements on Pokemon GO Fest, new upcoming additions to Pokemon GO, gameplay adjustments compatible with Covid, and a new Pokemon puzzle.
Some other games and franchises were also reviewed, and overall, it was a solid week of news on Android games.
For the latest news and sales, see the companion piece to this article.
Since Covid-19 chased us all inside, Niantic has made changes to Pokemon GO to allow players to get the most out of the game without having to go out. The last of these measures, coming soon, are free boxes and daily meetings.
Death Come True comes from the same twisted mind that brought us Danganronpa murder in high school, and it’s just as dark. An FMV game, it sees you waking up without memories, but with convincing evidence that you are a serial killer. It will be out next week, but you can pre-order now.
Among a wave of Pokemon-related announcements this week, the news that Pokemon Cafe Mix will be available in the next seven days. It’s a matching puzzle, but with a refreshing free-form approach that makes you swirl small icons to put them together.
It is a good thing that happened. That doesn’t happen anymore, but we thought you might like to know that if you had paid attention earlier this week, you could have recovered Sentinels from the Multiverse for free. It normally costs $ 6.99, which means how much it currently costs. More luck next time.
Pokemon GO Fest is going to be different this year, for obvious reasons. Previous events have taken place in Chicago, Dortmund and Yokohama. This year it takes place in your home, with all kinds of quests and activities planned for the weekend of July 25 and 26.
NetEase and Warner Bros., who have previously collaborated on the Harry Potter franchise and are working together on a new Lord of the Rings mobile game. Its name is The Lord of the Rings: Go to war, and it takes place during the Third Age of Middle-earth. This is the one with Gandalf et al, so you will be on familiar territory.
Moonlighter is often favorably compared to Stardew Valley, the universally acclaimed city-building RPG. He sees you playing as a trader who serves heroes by day and goes on an adventure at night, collects loot to advance your business interests and increase your adventure powers in no time.
Kingdom Hearts Dark Road, which will be a standalone game accessible via Kingdom Hearts Union Cross, arrives tomorrow. To whet your appetite while waiting, Square Enix has released a new trailer.
Trivia Royale, developer of the famous QuizUp quiz app, arrived on iOS this week. He sees 1000 players compete in trivial 1v1 matches until there is only one left. Unfortunately, it didn’t come to Android, but the good news is that it’s definitely in the works.
The latest edition of Pokemon Presents contained several juicy nuggets, including the news that Galarian Farfetch’d is now available in the game. In addition, although this has not been fully confirmed, it seems very likely that victory Pokemon Victini is also coming.
SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off is one of the most satisfying game ideas of recent months. He sees you playing like SpongeBob, serving fast food in a variety of places around Bikini Bottom. This week saw the release of the game’s first major update, adding a new juice bar.
