July 2018 has been an amazing month for gamers. The much-anticipated Asphalt 9: Legends made its debut along with a bunch of cool Android games like Alto's Odyssey, Life is Strange and the exciting Pokemon Quest. However, these were not the only games that released last month on the Play Store.
In this post, we have curated a list of all the fresh and new Android games that you'll surely get you hooked.
1. Asphalt 9: Legends
Of course, the first game has to be Asphalt 9: Legends. Just a week old and yet the app has already garnered more than a hundred thousand reviews on the Play Store.
Similar to Alto's Adventure, Odyssey is an absolutely gorgeous game with stunning landscapes and a cool gameplay. If you ask me, there are very few games that can match up to the surreal satisfaction that Alto brings. And yeah, I am not exaggerating.
The gameplay remains the same. You have Alto cruising down slopes collecting coins and stars. Only this time the icy slopes have been replaced by sand dunes and desert. And yeah, the llamas are also missing.
Alto's Odyssey has a bunch of landscapes to choose from like shipwrecks, castles, and huge hot air balloons.
Pro Tip: Let Alto do a couple of back-flips to cruise through the desert faster.
Last month also marked the debut of Life is Strange, the popular iOS game, on Android. For those who are unaware, this is a narrative-based interactive adventure game where the gameplay depends on the choices you make, much like Mass Effect.
Needless to say, the graphics are exceptional and unlike the usual lot, you won't be given a set of ugly cards to select your choice. The game follows the life of Max who has a unique superpower of rewinding time (remember The Butterfly Effect?).
You'd have to interact with the other characters to build the storyline and push it forward. Though it requires a lot of patience to play this cult-hit game, I bet you'd love it in the long run.
Fatal Flap is a super challenging endless arcade game with a simple objective. Make the ball pass through different hurdles. Easier said than done. The ball is heavy and before you know it, it escalates quickly from easy to hard before you can move a couple of inches!
It took me around 10-12 different attempts to at least get me across the first hurdle. My advice is to start with Classic to get a hold of the game.
The Fish Master — the name pretty much spells out what this game is about. What it doesn't indicate is how addictive and fun this game can be. You will be given a default fish line of 40 meters which can catch around 3 fishes.
Your job is to catch fishes, increase your earnings and improve your fishing business (the length of the line and the number of fishes it can catch). A decent time killer and a perfect game to play when you have nothing else to do.
The only downside of this game is the sheer number of ads. Thankfully, you can easily bypass ads if you switch to the airplane mode i.e. if you can afford to stay off the grid for some time.
We all space games, don't we? The amazing graphics and special shooting effects and the swarm of tiny alien ships somehow end up giving me a mindless satisfaction. Corennity was one such beautiful example and a new game to join this league is Space Shooter.
Your goal, as the last survivor, is to prevent the take-over of your galaxy by aliens.
It's a fast-paced game where you have to aim your shots precisely at the enemy swarms. The effects are beautiful, however, I'd advise handling the boss with care.
