Hungry for some more Android games? We've got you covered with puzzle, action, and role playing genres represented with mobile games you're guaranteed to love! And if you don't love them, then you're not guaranteed to love them!
Deadly Dungeons RPG - Role playing games on mobile platforms have traditionally been hit and miss. Deadly Dungeons is a hit, and it accomplishes that by sticking to the genre's retro roots, focusing on still screen first person gameplay, and layering old school charm on top of every pixel. Exploration and item management take center stage in this grim fantasy world, and even though you won't find anything groundbreaking in Deadly Dungeons, you'll be marvelously happy it doesn't try to break the mold. Intuitive interface, lots of items to fuss around with, simple combat and an all-around great mobile RPG experience. The free Deadly Dungeons RPG Demo is also available.
X-Men - If you were of video gaming age in the early 1990s, you probably spent as much time as you could lining your coins up at the local arcade. And if you visited an arcade after 1992, you probably saw this gorgeous X-Men beat-em-up game that had you and your friends transfixed for ages. Konami has made this classic sidescrolling fighting game available for Android phones, and even though it doesn't hold the same "wow" factor as it did almost two decades ago, the gameplay is still solid, the characters still recognizable, and the action as tense as ever.
Alberi - When picross meets sudoku, it's this bare-bones but fantastic puzzle game. The goal is to find the location of the trees on the grid. Each colored zone, each row, and each column contains only one tree (or more, in later levels). Trees also cannot touch other trees on any side or diagonal. Place trees by double tapping a square, and mark a box as empty by tapping it once. Use logic to solve each level, and progress through the dozens upon dozens of levels at your puzzling leisure!
