Near the end of November, Dreamotion Inc. soft-launched the stylish arcade shooter Gun Strider, and it has become one of my daily addictions. There is something extremely satisfying watching Ivan, the gun strider, bend, twist, and spin around to shoot enemies in this kill-or-be-killed game.
Post Brutal, an ultra-violent game from new developers, Helltap entertainment, is a 3rd person zombie Action-RPG with a combat system that is similar to some of the bigger MOBA titles that have flooded the Google Play store in recent times; featuring a leveling system complete with rewards, and upgrading/branching skills.

For those not familiar, trials riding is an artful expression of man and motorcycle. I went into this review with high hopes and here’s what I found. The design of the game is to guide your rider through the obstacles in any given level.
LucasArts is one of those studios that I really appreciate. Twenty some years ago, they released a string of excellent adventure games that went WAY outside of the bread and butter of Star Wars. Day of the Tentacle was one such game. Set up as the sequel to Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle carries over many (though not all) of its characters, and takes place five years later. I really enjoyed this game when I was in High School, and was thrilled to be able to play it again over the last few weeks, via GeForce Now.
Infinite_Apps is known for their Android apps like Buzz Sound, Coin Flip, Dice Roll and more. The closest they have come to releasing an actual game was Tap n' Tap, where players try to tap as many times as possible in a given time limit. Now, Infinite_Apps has released Counter Game, so here we are.
I had the unique pleasure of checking out The Revenge of Johnny Bonasera game which is based on a kid who is bullied and picked on by some larger, unscrupulous neighborhood punks. These punks abuse both Johnny and his sandwich which causes Johnny to take the law into his own hands to serve a bit of justice. There is actually a map of the neighborhood in which the main character, Johnny travels.
Borderlands is a well established gaming franchise, focusing on first person shooting with some RPG elements. It uses the cell shading that it's well known for, along with quirky humor. When it was announced several months ago that it was being ported over to Android, on Nvidia hardware to be specific, I was thrilled, having enjoyed both the original as well as the sequel. This game is easily as good as the others, though my experience playing it wasn't.
Miniclip is known for making games that are fun, quick to play and easily to play too. That trend continues, as they team up with Motionvolt Games to bring Flip Diving to the Google Play Store. There is a lot to like about this simple and somewhat repetitive free to play game. The good part is there is quite a bit to unlock. The challenge of the game though, will be trying to land those perfect dives in small landing area.
Hello There AB continues to publish high-quality and enjoyable games for mobile devices. The latest game to arrive in the Play Store is a platforming game called Ants. It has some tough levels, top-notch graphics and really enjoyable electronic dance music, supplied by musicians that fall under the banner of UnitedAnts. House and Techno music reign supreme, but that is part of the reason you should check out this game.
Trials racing games were all the rage a few years ago. They are still somewhat popular, but their arrival in the Play Store has diminished a bit. If you enjoy those types of games, then you should check out Big Bang Racing from TrapLight. The game is fun, has plenty of content, challenges and cute and engaging graphics. The controls are spot on too, which helps with these types of games. Though the game has been out for a few weeks, that doesn't mean it isn't worthy of your attention.
