10 More Addictive Android Games

A little more than two weeks ago I posted my list of 20 Android Apps & Games You'll Love, but there is just so much more fun available for your Android phone. So I made another list of more games I've enjoyed in the meantime for your recommendation.

Enjoy!


Inotia III: Children of Carnia

Developer: Com2uS
Price: free

Only starting to play this one, but look at it! Inotia III instantly reminds you of your favorite Super Nintendo RPGs and looks more than charming with it's fine presentation and visuals. The gameplay consists of pretty straight-forward monster slashing, plus the usual role-playing stuff like upgrading your characters and equipment. Inotia III comes with a touching story, interesting characters and a vast world to explore. You won't regret delving into the adventures of the Carnia children, and I thoroughly recommend it!

ShakyTower

Developer: HyperBees Ltd.
Price: free

"ShakyTower starts out simple but can often offer a fiendish challenge," PocketGamer.co.uk says, and they're so right. I don't know how often I cursed throughout whole levels in this game, but it's still too much fun and too addictive to let it rest. For a game focusing on gravity puzzles, it offers an unusually wide range and variety of different styles of puzzles. And often it doesn't matter if you're stacking things or bumping them around or steering them to some destination or whatnot – you will always feel challenged and surprised as you advance.

Super Dynamite Fishing

Developer: HandyGames
Price: free; $1.49 (Full Version)

This fun game blends happy dynamite action with basic role-playing elements. You're out in a boat on the water, killing a lot of fish, sharks, birds and the like with your dynamite sticks or guns and collect the loot from treasures to earn enough money to fulfill your daily goal. With your spare money you can buy bigger and better ships and heavier ammunition – or presents for your beloved lady. More places to hunt and visit are unlocked after a while and keep you busy bombing fish.

Stupid Zombies

Developer: GameResort
Price: free

Stupid Zombies is a variation of the Angry Birds gameplay, where you have to shoot zombies with as few shots as possible. Your bullets bounce off the walls a few times (that's where strategy comes in), but not forever, so you should take advantage of explosive barrels and other stuff lying around to reach your goal. Headshots and stylish kills give more points, but can be tricky to execute. The later levels have enough variation to keep you on the trigger and the game's free, so shoot them zombies!

Cyberlords – Arcology

Developer: HandyGames
Price: free; $1.49 (Full Version)

Cyberlords is a great cyberpunk RPG with all the good stuff: Four guys take on dangerous missions and upgrade themselves with biomechanic augmentation and a whole variety of weapons. The clean yet stylish looking Cyberlords will surprise you – with its shortness as well as with the fun you'll have with it. You can fight in real-time or pause the action to consider your commands. The easy handling as well as the stylish design will keep you returning back to the year 2173, believe me.

Blow Up

Developer: Camel Games
Price: free; $1.99 (Full Version)

Blow Up is an exciting twist on the bridge-building gameplay – it's just the other way round. You have to demolish structures with a certain goal, and you have a variety of different bombs and timed explosives at your disposal to finish the levels in many different ways. The physics engine works well and the levels are many, so it's yet another worthy addition to your valuable mobile phone disc space.

Slice It!

Developer: Com2uS
Price: free

This one is not the most recent game on this list, but it's still hardcore addictive. Your objective here is to slice geometrical shapes into even parts, which can be pretty tricky if you have to use a given number of strokes to create the given number of sliced shapes. Like almost any game from the mobile game pros at Com2uS, Slice It! comes with a charming visual design throughout the game and many nifty puzzles ready for you to solve. The only little downer is that it can be difficult to be exact with your strokes on small displays.

Caligo Chaser

Developer: Com2uS
Price: free; $2.99 (Full Version)

Another RPG in the style of reknowned 16-bit RPGs, but also a very pretty and entertaining one. As the developer says, it's a "style slash and dash action RPG" with more than 135 different skill upgrade combinations, unique attack skills and even more passive skills. So I guess this is your choice for a game you can spend a while with, and I certainly will. Can't have enough of those fine handheld RPGs, since my good old console times are long over. And I missed them.

Shoot U!

Developer: Camel Games
Price: free; $1.99 (Full Version)

Shoot U! is like Angry Birds, only with a cannon, a dummy that gets shot out of the cannon, stars to reach instead of pigs to hit and lovely hand-drawn, Crayon Physics-style visuals. The puzzles have their unique style and difficulties, but in the end you'll feel quite at home, if you've swung birds before. You can also stitch a picture of yourself, your friends or your foes onto the dummies and get a good laugh, if you miscalculate your shot and the dude just flies against the wall once more.

Cyber Knights

Developer: Cory Trese
Price: free; $1.99 (Elite Version)

This one marks a special spot here, since it's the only independent game. Created by Cory Trese, Cyber Knights is still in beta mode, but awesome nevertheless! Are you a fan of cyberpunk adventures? Shadowrun? Well, what are you waiting for? Cyber Knights isn't all too beautiful, but surprises with a thrilling story and many, many options to customize your protagonist and his party: 8 unique skills, 5 character classes, 65 different cybernetic improvements, 400 different items, weapons and armor. A personal recommendation, but remember that it hasn't reached its final version yet and some things might strike you as odd, missing or incomplete. By the way, if you buy the so-called Elite Version now, you get it for one dollar less than the final version will cost.


Bonus Ragdoll Recommendation

Stair Dismount

Developer: Secret Exit Ltd.
Price: free

Some people call it sick, some call it hilarious: Stair Dismount is a ragdoll simulator, where you can kick a dummy from stairs, towers, ski jumps and whatnot. The heavier your dummy strikes the various objects on its inevitable way down, the more points you collect. While the free game comes with a handful of stages and two dummies, you can also invest a few dollars into more spectacular surroundings and more dummies in different shapes to raise your scores. You have to be a little sadistic to enjoy this app, but it's well worth the free download.
