The former iOS exclusive puzzler Warp Shift has finally landed on Android, and it's absolutely free.
Warp Shift sees you play as the young girl Pi, who's found herself stranded in an ancient chamber. To escape, she has to solve a bunch of challenging puzzles with the assistance of her mysterious magical companion.
Real care and attention has been put into the visuals and audio here, so it might be worth playing on your tablet with headphones to get the full experience.
And there's a lot to experience, with five worlds to explore and 15 levels in each of them.
If it sounds like fun to you, go and grab Warp Shift from right now.
It's almost like clockwork, isn't it? There's a new animated Smurfs movie on the way and, as you can predict, a mobile game tie in has launched alongside it. This time, it's a bubble shooter - who'd have guessed?!
Okay, we'll try not to be too mean - people like this stuff.
So you'll pop your way through a bunch of levels, collecting your favourite Smurfs. Each Smurf you collect unlocks a new power-up which you can use in future levels. Multiple power-ups can be used in the same level as well, so if you're really struggling you can get a helping hand.
There's some semblance of a plot, and a variety of game modes to spice things up. It's the usual boss battles - stuff like that.
If you're sold, you can grab Smurfs Bubble Story from right now.
At first glance, Tempest seems like an impossible proposition on mobile. A full blown, gorgeously 3D open world pirate adventure? On mobile? With multiplayer?! Count us in!
This is no April fools either. It's developed by the excellent Herocraft, and you can actually play it right now. It's in open beta on Android only, so those iOS suckers will have to wait.
Tempest originally launched on Steam, which explains why it's so flipping gorgeous, and has been ported directly on mobile. Get a ship, hire crew, install weapons, and become a terror on the open seas - both for other pirates and the legendary monsters lurking beneath the waves.
We'll certainly be checking this out. If you'd like to do so yourself, head on over to to grab it right now. Bear in mind that it's in open beta though, so it's likely not quite in ship shape.
Nexon's gearing up to launch Total Clash, a mobile strategy game in a similar vein to Clash of Clans. You know the drill, build a fortress, gather resources, upgrade everything, and battle other players. We've seen it all before.
We haven't had a chance to check this one out yet, but there are some pretty cool perks for signing up to the beta. If you pre-register right now, you could win a Google Play voucher to buy something you might actually play. They're giving 50 away just for signing up.
But if you do so happen to like it, you'll grab a reward each day you sign in during the beta. There are a total of seven rewards being given away, which will give you a sizeable advantage over any players that pick it up on day one.
On top of that, you'll also get a random gift in your mail every day you play as well. Say what you like about Total Clash, but Nexon really knows how to run a pre-registration event!
We'd say it's worth a punt for the chance to win a Google Play voucher alone, but if you're a fan of the genre you really should give this a try. The rewards sure are worth it.
You can pre-register for the beta right now by visiting the .
The family friendly mobile tower defence franchise is all set to get another sequel, as Bloons TD 6 has just been announced for a 2017 release on Android.
And that's... all Ninja Kiwi has to say on the matter right now, with no mention of new modes, towers, or abilities aside from, well, heavily hinting that there will be all of the above.
Judging from the press release, Bloons TD 6 is likely to be the most ambitious entry in the franchise so far. Ninja Kiwi hinted as much when it said: "The team has not announced a launch date, as the immense scale and strategic depth of the game require an extensive balance and test period, but their goal is to release the game in 2017."
Immense scale and strategic depth, eh? Is that PR talk or a genuine sign that something special's on the horizon? Only time will tell. Shouldn't be too long a wait though, as Bloons TD 6 will launch this year.
Android users the world over may have been left heartbroken when Tin Man Games's The Warlock of Firetop Mountain launched only on iOS. It might still arrive on this platform, but given the lack of a confirmed release date it looks like it's going to be a while.
Don't despair though, as we have good news! Nomad Games of Talisman fame is shortly bringing three Fighting Fantasy gamebooks to Android in one package titled Fighting Fantasy Legends.
It won't play exactly as you remember though. Fighting Fantasy Legends is more of a card battler than a gamebook, with you selecting cards from a deck to perform actions.
Across the course of your journey, you'll increase in power by levelling up your dice and collecting more cards, which should give a nice sense of progression.
Also, much like The Warlock of Firetop Mountain before it, Fighting Fantasy Legends displays your character and the world around them from a top down perspective. It offers a nice visual flair.
Fighting Fantasy Legends hasn't got a firm release date just yet, but will launch in summer this year on Google Play.
Another busy week for Android - much like every week! As a result, it's pretty challenging trying to cram every single news story onto the site, though we do try.
But that's what this round up's for. Each week, we scour the internet for the best news bits we missed, and put them all in one place so you don't have to do it yourself. We even do the same for the best stories on DroidGamers each week.
So get comfy, and relax into Sunday with DroidGamers.
Another busy week for Android - so much so that we struggled to narrow it down to just five top stories. We had Clash Royale-likes coming out of the woodwork, an Android exclusive, and pre-registrations for a ton of upcoming exciting games.
If you're anything like us though, you probably had a busy week and couldn't find the time to keep on top of all of the happenings. No worries! That's what we're here for.
So ease into the weekend with this round-up of the top five stories on DroidGamers this week.
NOVA is Gameloft's long-running shooter franchise that tries to emulate Halo on mobile. We'll leave it up to you to decide how successful it's been at that. Last week, Gameloft launched the original a remaster of the original NOVA with fancy new visuals, a reworked UI, and a tidied up plot. If that wasn't good enough, it's also an Android exclusive - for now.
Okay, before you you head over to the comments in a fit of rage, I'd like to point out that the headline is a joke. However, Royal Dungeon is a fun little dungeon crawling puzzler that emulates the early Zeldas in its appearance and sound. 8bit and chiptune music, anyone? It doesn't play like Zelda though. It's a puzzler that challenges you to help a king and queen escape from a dungeon by swiping - with them both moving in opposite directions with each swipe. Challenging stuff. Crescent Moon's No Man's Sky and Metroid Prime-like shooter, Morphite, was announced for a spring release. Given that the sun's just started peaking out, we'd guess that we don't have much longer to wait.
Shooting aliens, exploring procedurally generated worlds, and gathering resources - Morphite's got the lot.
It seems like everyone's trying to dethrone Clash Royale in the multiplayer kingdom right now, doesn't it? Ubisoft is the latest with a novel idea based on the Tom Clancy series.
You play as a sniper, providing overwatch to your squad. It plays like Clash Royale, except you can blow the head off enemy units that really annoy you.
Wrapping this up is the awesome news that Black Isle's classic RPG Planescape Torment is getting a Beamdog enhancement - and it's coming to Android.
And the best part is that you don't even have to wait very long - it's launching on April 11th.
Did you catch any big Android news we missed this week? Hurl abuse at us in the comments and we'll try and add it in tomorrow's round-up.
You know how Gameloft likes to, erm, copy popular games? Well, Clash Royale is the next one to get the treatment with Blitz Brigade: Rival Tactics.
It's almost identical to Supercell's innovative multiplayer battler, except the viewpoint is isometric and the visuals are gorgeous 3D.
Savvy mobile gamers will recognise the name - that's because there's another Blitz Brigade, also developed by Gameloft, which was a 3D team shooter.
We're not sure when Blitz Brigade: Rival Tactics will launch, but there's a happening right now which will reward everyone who does so with in-game goodies when it launches.
The rewards will depend on how many pre-register though, so tell all your friends if you want a shot at the best rewards.
Ferdinand is an upcoming animated movie by the same studio that brought you Rio and Ice Age, and a mobile game tie in is launching alongside it.
Brought to you by Crashing Season's Koukoi Games in collaboration with FoxNext Games, Ferdinand the mobile game is an idle puzzler featuring the cast of characters from the movie.
And that's literally all we know about it right now.
Ferdinand will likely launch on Android alongside the movie, which hits theatres in December 2017. We'll keep you posted.
Robot Wars may make for entertaining viewing, but it lacks one essential ingredient: cats.
That's an ingredient that CATS has in abundance - an upcoming war machine battler coming soon to Android.
In CATS, you'll build your very own war machine from scratch - seriously, allow your imagination to go crazy. Once you're happy, you can enter automated PvP battles to see who's assembled the best.
Your pet cat will even ride it into battle, which is adorable, and given that it was built by the developers behind Cut the Rope, you can bet it's a bit of a looker.
CATS will launch in April, though we don't have an exact date for you right now. Pre-registration's open on though, so go ahead and do that to grab it when it launches.
Shadowverse has just received a brand new expansion called Tempest of the Gods, which introduces a whopping 104 new cards to the battler. Included in this are two new legendary cards for each class.
As the title suggests, the expansion is themed around gods. So if you ever wished you could add Zeus, the god of thunder himself, to your deck, you'll be in your element.
To celebrate the expansion, a promotion is running in Shadowverse right now which rewards 10 Tempest of the Gods card packs to every player who completes the tutorial between now and June 28th.
That's a pretty sweet deal! If you were looking for a replacement for Hearthstone, Shadowverse may well be worth a look.
Noodlecake has announced that it's porting a bunch of iOS classics to Android over the next few months as free to play versions.
Proceedings were kicked off this week with Dig Deep!, a space exploration adventure in which you play as the moustachioed miner Roger who's tasked with excavating a bunch of planets in the search for gold. Earth's kind of run out of it, you see.
Each planet you visit is procedurally generated, so it's never the same adventure. Each will be filled with aliens, power-ups, and lots of gold.
You can also bring different companions along for the ride, each of which have their own perk to help you tackle that particular planet's challenges.
Dig Deep! is out right now on - a true bargain when you consider that the iOS version was premium. Huzzah for Android!
It's amazing how time flies, but Clash Royale is already a year old. To celebrate, Supercell is rolling things back to launch with the in-game event, Retro Royale.
Retro Royale forces you to win six games using only the cards that were available during launch. In return, you'll earn rewards for each individual win.
You'll get 10 gems for the first, a silver and gold chest for the next two, a magical chest at your fifth, and a whopping 3000 coins for your sixth.
If that wasn't reward enough, you can also bulk purchase classic cards cheap by spending your gems. Sweet!
Retro Royale is running right now, and will end on April 3rd. Get involved while it lasts!
In a move that surprised literally no one, Disney has just announced a mobile game tie in to Force Awakens - and it's a match three puzzler.
Stay with us here though, as Puzzle Droids does have a unique spin to it. You get to experience the plot and witness key events from BB-8's perspective, which is a nice addition to the movie. You'll also get to spend a bit more time with your favourite characters.
That's Star Wars die-hards sold already, and match three puzzle fans will enjoy digging their teeth into the 50 challenging levels which feature popular mechanics like combos, power-ups, and boss fights.
And if you like both of those things, this will give you a solid indication of what heaven's like.
Star Wars: Puzzle Droids hasn't got a confirmed release date just yet, but you can to grab it as soon as it arrives.
Dead Men Tell No Tales - the latest entry in the hit Pirates of the Caribbean film series - is all set to sail into cinemas next month and, as you can expect, a mobile game tie-in has already been announced.
It's called Tides of War, and is a strategy MMO that sees you don the captain's hat and become a pirate in the great open seas. You'll build your own ship, fill it with scurvy dogs, and then set sail for battle against enemy players and monsters.
Memorable characters, ships, and locations will feature - so expect to see Captain Jack Sparrow swaggering around like a drunken lunatic. It's also canon, so you might even find yourself participating in certain movie segments.
No formal release date has been announced just yet, but it will likely launch around the same time the movie hits theatres. You can to get it as soon as it lands, along with special in-game gifts.
Dynasty Warriors just launched on Android! I know, you're probably thinking this is another match three puzzler or card battler loosely based on the franchise. But, it turns out that Unleashed is a bona fide entry that's faithful to the franchise's roots.
Naturally, there have been a few alterations to ensure it all fits on the smaller screen. You'll be fighting isometrically, rather than in third person, and I'm willing to bet that battles are no longer 40 minute affairs.
We won't lie, a few typical mobile mechanics have been incorporated. You'll be collecting characters from throughout the franchise's history, and building a team of them to take into battle with you.
Yes, they each have star ratings out of five, can be equipped with skills and abilities, and can be chopped and changed between battles.
Then there are the typical mobile PvP modes like skirmishes, raids, and boss fights - which actually sound kind of fun with a Dynasty Warriors skin.
Conquest is still there though, and it seems it can be played in single or multiplayer, and a new War Supply mode sounds quite fun. Occupy mines on the map and gather resources to help fuel your war efforts.
If you're a fan of Dynasty Warriors, Unleashed is a no-brainer. But those who are into mobile MMOs, RPGs, or hack and slashers will likely also get a kick out of this. Go and grab it from right now.
Dogbyte Games has a pretty decent pedigree when it comes to mobile racing games. This is the studio that brought you Blocky Roads and Highway, as well as last year's Dead Venture - themed around butchering zombies in a variety of different vehicles.
Beamdog has just announced that the classic 90s RPG Planescape: Torment is coming to Android on April 11th in an all new enhanced edition. This is the developer behind the recent Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale enhanced editions that really whet our whistles.
Ever since Clash Royale introduced an entirely new genre to mobile last year, developers have strived to iterate on it. The recent Star Wars: Force Arena came closest to success, giving you a role to play rather than just dropping units and watching the combat unfold.
