I am a gamer, simply put. And finding games on my phone that I enjoy playing are few and far between. I need more than a little repetition and a whole lot of ads when it comes to playing, well, anything. But this week, I’ve managed to find 3 fun games that you can download from Google Play.
Who’s heard of this game? If you haven’t, you need to download it immediately. This cute little game offers satisfying gameplay, beautiful visuals, and just the right amount of puzzle-solving to add some difficulty without making you throw your phone across the room in frustration. This simple point-and-click adventure delivers a nice variety in the levels, never giving players a chance to get bored with whatever setting the Tiny Thief finds himself in.
One of the great things I will mention about this particular game is the lack of ads. You may come across one every now and then, but they never get in your way. Nothing will make me uninstall a program faster than repeated, full-length ads. The only downside to this game is that you will have to pay a couple dollars if you want to access half the levels. But honestly, Tiny Thief is so much fun, you may just think it’s worth it.
If fun can be addicting, then fun is the word to describe the next game: Swordigo. Touch Foo decided to take this side-scrolling adventure game to the next level. Fight your way through forests, caves, and other areas to collect magical items, and eventually, the Mageblade. A much-appreciated feature is the overall complexity. The simple ability to earn new powers and to level up your abilities is a breath of fresh air in the world of cellphone-gaming. (Thank you, Touch Foo!) By adding these features, players receive a more enjoyable experience.
One of my favorite aspects so far has been the length of the game. Unlike so many of the other free games on the market, Swordigo boasts a large amount of gameplay. After a couple hours of playing, I’ve only managed to get about half way through, and haven’t been asked for any money. So far, this has easily been the most extensive and well-developed game I have played on Android.
Although it does contain more ads than the previously mentioned title, it doesn’t really take away from the game. Advertisements will generally pop up for about 5 seconds, and it’s usually only after your character has died (game over).
Possibly one of the most unique games I found on Google Play was Ignatius. Think Tim Burton and that pretty well sums up the animation style of this particular game. A little dark, yet cartoonish; it really pulls everything together and gives the game a fun and interesting feel.
Trapped in a film-reel world, players must make their way through various levels avoiding enemies and collecting bits of the film reel in order to progress, in the hopes of eventually escaping this surreal world. The gameplay offers a decent level of diversity and manages to keep things interesting throughout the game.
The controls are well-done and allows the player to move freely and quickly. With just a few simple buttons, you are able to make the character move, jump, and fall (move down). If you’re looking for something a little different, definitely check out Ignatius.
So here they are. Three fun (and free!) games you can download from the Google Play store. Hope you enjoy them like I did. If you need me, I’ll be playing Swordigo.
