The latest game to receive a companion app for a console game is Evolve: Hunters Quest. Evolve is a 4 versus 1 multiplayer FPS/Third Person Shooter hybrid, that is now available for XBox One, PS4 and on Steam. The game is designed by Turtle Rock Studios, the creators of Left for Dead, and published by 2K Games. The 4 versus 1 multiplayer aspect is unique in that you can choose to be one of four hunters, or the beast in the game that is being hunted. The companion app Evolve: Hunters Quest, is a collaboration between 2K Games and Cat Daddy Studios. What is the companion app game play comprised of? Believe it or not, it is a match-3 type puzzle game, but it is one of the best I have encountered.
Originally created by Rob Dougherty (Co-founder of Ascension) and Darwin Kastle, Star Realms is a card game that has been digitally converted to Android. Star realms is a fairly simple card game with a SciFi setting. This was the first time I've played a digital card game. Having enjoyed CCGs/LCGs/TCGs for years (I love even the smell of new cards... you die-hards will know what I mean), I was curious as to how the experience would translate to a touch screen. For the uninitiated, the idea is that you and your opponent(s) have a deck of cards that are custom to the game being played, with a framework of rules that cards can expand upon, as well as the cards taking the place of pieces, counters, and often times a board (such is the case here).
Are you a fan of puzzle games? If you are, maybe you should take a look at a unique game called Hook. It is an engaging minimalist puzzle game from game developer Maciej Targoni (Rainbow Train), who lives in Miedzylesie, Poland. The game first appeared on Kongregate, which is an online games hosting website, that is owned by Gamestop Corporation. Maciej created a five minute sample of Hook on Kongregate. Because of its popularity (The game received 200k downloads.) and requests for more, Maciej created Hook which is now available on Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and has been Greenlit on Steam.

For the hockey inclined there’s some fun options available to Android gamers. If you’re looking for the console experience (and hopefully have a game pad) NHL 2K from Sega is a great port of a fully fleshed out title. Or if you’re looking for an arcade style one on one game there’s always Ice Rage: Hockey Free.
Released by Aspyr Media, Inc for Android (and originally developed by BioWare and released by LucasArts), Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) is a role playing game that's been around for over a decade. Back around Christmas, when I saw it was released on Android, I was pretty stoked to grab it up and jump in. Let's see how things went for me.
On paper there’s a lot to like about Immersive Douro’s new action game Johnny Scraps: Clash of Dimensions. It looks like a wild beat ‘em up set in different timelines throughout history. On paper it sounds like the perfect way to waste a few minutes on the bus. On paper.
Wadget Eye Games specializes in point-and-click mystery games that are designed with a retro look that's heavily pixelated, great (albeit short) story telling, and live voice acting. I've played a few of their games, like the Blackwell legacy and The Shivah, so I was familiar with their style of gameplay. Happily, I found Gemini Rue to be the best one of theirs yet, that I've played.
Exiles: Far Colony is the latest game from Crescent Moon games, also made games that you might have played like Neon Shadow, Mines of Mars, and the Ravensword. Like Ravensword before it, Exiles is an open world Action/RPG, only its the SciFi counterpart to Ravensword's fantasy theme. While the undertaking is ambitious and full of potential, the game falls short of what appears to be Crescent Moon's intent.
Thanks to games like Flappy Birds there has been quite the movement of games that are simple to play but extremely challenging to survive for long periods of time in. Whether it be you trying to keep a bird flying through obstacles for as long as possible or some other method of movement through hazards and dying relentlessly whenever you touch one, these games do make for great time killers and are usually pretty enjoyable to play.
