A title that offers a fair price, enjoyable gameplay, a stylish interface, or interesting
My time in Portia
Android Police Scope: My Time at Portia is basically 3D Stardew Valley and the Android port is solid.
My Time at Portia is an indie farming simulation finally released to mobile. The ports are solid, but the frame rate is limited to 30 FPS and the controller support seems to succeed and fail, at least on Android 11 devices. Still, the frame rate is very stable and the touch controls work well. And if you’re looking to complete the campaign, you’ll get at least 65 hours of gameplay, making for a premium release that will keep you entertained for hours and hours. Best of all, you can buy a copy today at a discounted price.
monetization: $7.99 / No Ads / No IAP
my friend pedro
Android Police Scope: The indie hit My Friend Pedro is pre-registering on the Play Store.
My Friend Pedro is a popular indie bullet time shooter on PC and consoles, and Devolver Digital brings the game to mobile but a whole new experience with slingshot controls rather than ports. Luckily, the slingshot-based touch controls work well, but you need to get used to them first. Luckily, if the controls are tricky, you have the option to revert them. Best of all, the entire game is free to play, and you can unlock this feature by paying $2.99 to redeem checkpoints, making it easy to get a premium experience for the price.
monetization: Free / No Ads / $2.99 per IAP
Neighbors from Hell
Neighbors back From Hell is essentially a remaster of Neighbors From Hell 1 & 2 in a single package. Unlike the season-based port still available on the Play Store, the graphics in this release have been updated for HD screens, and the developers have doubled the frame rates of both games to allow for a smoother experience. So, if you’re a fan of the original or are looking for a point-and-click adventure game that offers a sense of humor, you can now enjoy Neighbors back From Hell as you can get the entire collection at an affordable price.
monetization: $4.99 / No Ads / No IAP
A title that’s not the best of the best, but still offers a fun and interesting mechanic
DC: Batman Battech Edition
DC: Batman Bat-Tech Edition is an augmented reality app and game. This release is thanks to the fact that it features 10 different mini-games, along with stickers, cartoons, and a variety of junk that American companies think will appeal to kids. Luckily there’s no price tag, so you’re free to jump in and check out the games and manga. But everything quickly becomes cliche and AR features require bright lighting, so, like most AR releases, it’s often missed indoors. . Your kids will love DC: Batman Bat-Tech Edition because something like this app exists for brand awareness because it’s free. Keep in mind that the content is very shallow. That said, hardcore DC fans will probably want to leave this out.
monetization: Free / No Ads / No IAP
UnderKnight: One Thumb Warrior
UnderKnight: One Thumb Warrior is a game you can control with just one thumb. Of course, this dramatically reduces the situation as you will move and attack with one button. The graphics are simple, but you’ll get the job done, and the rogue-like mechanism will keep you doing the same thing over and over again, and things quickly wear out because it consists of a single button that you keep tapping with your thumb. The game is in Early Access, which means it hasn’t been monetized yet. So, if UnderKnight looks like fun, now is the best time to dive in before things get even more greedy.
monetization: Free / No Ads / No IAP
Legends of the Dark is not a standalone digitization of the board game of the same name. No, it’s a tie-in product that should be used with real tabletop titles. If you want, the companion app. So, think of this release as a DM for the game. From here you can fill in the story and keep track of all players and gear to easily count the numbers. So this release has some gameplay, but you need to own the actual game to use it.
monetization: Free / No Ads / No IAP
Titles that are buggy, unpolished, or offer aggressive monetization
Flip Rider – BMX Tricks
Flip Rider – BMX Tricks is a game where you actually do some dope BMX tricks in a halfpipe. Hold the screen with your thumb, flip it over and press the button to do the trick. You do this to earn in-game currency that can be used to buy new riders, bike upgrades and tricks. So, although the monetization is not very high, all the pitfalls of free game grindy games are here. For easy-to-play titles, you might be wondering why they monetize so aggressively. It’s free to play, of course, but obviously this game is built around pushing IAP.
monetization: Free / With Ads / IAPs from $1.99 – $14.99
Empire Defender TD: Tower Defense The Kingdom Rush
Empire Defender TD is a tower defense game that seems to take advantage of its name by inserting the popular Kingdon Rush series into the title of this release. Now that it’s clear that this developer is following some unscrupulous practice for awareness, I don’t think the buggy UI and gameplay are all that surprising. But if you can release a game that’s in bad shape while filling it with in-app purchases, why should you properly balance your game and test for bugs? So while the 2D graphics look good, it’s a title that needs more work before it’s released in prime time.
monetization: Free / Ads included / IAP $0.99 – $49.99
Shot Online: Golf Battle
As a huge fan of golf games, I had to check out Shot Online: Golf Battle. As you may have guessed, this is a competitive golf game that focuses on real-time combat. This makes for a game that offers quick fights that are good for on-the-go play, but sadly the title is full of scammers, not to mention horrendous monetization, and all the bots in the match don’t help either. Perhaps instead of building games around greedy monetization, developers should focus on important things like enjoyable and fair gameplay.
monetization: Free / With Ads / IAPs from $0.99 – $99.99
War of Survivors is the latest generic zombie survival game on the Play Store, featuring pre-rendered backgrounds and everything. Fight zombies, build and defend your base, find more survivors and increase your numbers. It’s the exact same setup we’ve seen a hundred times before, all wrapped in plain buggy and ugly graphics packages. Among other things, the developers have added a lot of in-app purchases. Because that’s the point of this release. More money than fun. In other words, War of Survivors is a blatant cash grab.
monetization: Free / No Ads / IAP $0.99 – $99.99
Candy, Inc.: Build, Baking and Decorating
Candy, Inc.: Build, Bake & Decorate is basically a casual idle game where you sit and wait for tasks to be completed, so you can tap a button and then wait more. Of course things look good enough, but there is basically no gameplay here and the monetization is absolutely terrible. More or less, this is a cash grab designed for those unfamiliar with it.
monetization: Free / Ad Included / IAP from $3.49 – $119.99
