Crescent Moon's gorgeous mobile answer to Metroid Prime, Morphite, has been officially confirmed for a spring release on Android.
It's 3D, features stylised cartoon visuals, and borrows heavily from Nintendo's intensely popular space adventure franchise. You'll explore seven different planets, gathering new abilities to unlock more paths.
You can choose which planet to explore at any given moment though, and they're procedurally generated, so aside from the visuals they'll be different each time.
And you'll be encouraged to go back, as the new abilities you unlock will allow you to access more areas than before.
You'll see plenty of combat, gather resources, and collect oddball creatures you discover. Between all that, this should keep you busy for a fair while.
There's still a few months at the very latest to go though, as Crescent Moon Games has announced a late spring release for this one. We'll keep you posted.
Card Thief, the recent sequel to the critically acclaimed Solitaire-style RPG, recently launched on iOS - with seemingly no Android release date in site.
Redditor WizardTimeGames took it upon himself to ask in Reddit for an update, and the developer itself, Tinytouchtales, responded directly:
"We're going to release in about a month. So expect it out by May 1st for sure."
That's from the horse's mouth itself, and we can cut the guy some slack as he openly admits that he's the sole developer working on this - along with providing support for both versions.
For the uninitiated, Card Thief is essentially a stealth version of Card Crawl. You have to move through a deck of cards, stealing items, snuffing out lights, and pickpocketing.
There are four different heists to complete, which each offer different challenges, and you'll earn equippable equipment upgrade cards for doing so. So you'll actually increase in power after completing each one, and can then try it again for a higher score.
And that's all wrapped up in gorgeous artwork as we can expect from Tinytouchtales.
No firm release date for this one just yet, but it'll launch on Android by May 1st for free. There'll be a single IAP to unlock the premium version.
Match three puzzlers and turn-based RPG battles are a match made in heaven, but they don’t always look that exciting.
Forge of Glory is different. With its 13 beautifully rendered 3D environments and brilliant character art it looks every bit the high budget action-RPG, and its gameplay covers a diverse array of single-player and multiplayer bases.
Firstly, there’s the PVE. This element of the game involves setting out across 13 different environments, ranging from desert to tundra, and getting into furious match-three scraps with enemies along the way.
The ultimate aim is to find the lair of the Bone Dragon and kill the beast that waits within.
Then there’s the PVP. This part of the game involves attacking other players’ towns for loot and other rewards. You can do this alone or with a co-op crew, with a chat function allowing you to direct the battle in real-time.
Of course, this means you have your own stronghold to defend. To this end, you can upgrade your buildings and level-up the terrible monsters that guard your city to help ensure that your enemies don’t find it too easy to rob you blind.
The match-three battles themselves draw on the distinctive skills of your party members (rogue, archer, mage, warrior), and see you attempting to both crush your opponent and break down their defences.
If you find the battles too difficult, you can engage auto mode to let the computer do the heavy lifting for you. If, however, you’re finding it all a bit easy, you can play in hardcore mode for bonus rewards.
Forge of Glory has been in soft launch for just under a year, and since then its developers have been tweaking and perfecting its formula.
You can download the highly polished result from Google Play right now.

Just what is going on over at the official Modern Combat Versus site? First the image of a drab, grayscale cityscape was teased, at the centre of which is a skyscraper with the logo Korp slammed front and centre.
Above, a caption read: "Trust your leaders", perhaps hinting at a post-apocalyptic dictatorship setting?
But today, a new series of images have been presented which appear to showcase the variety of maps on offer in Gameloft's answer to Call of Duty on mobile.
