February is now officially in the books which means it’s time for a look back at the best Android releases of the month. Prepare to game out and get down with our picks for the Top New Android Games of February 2014…
1. Out There
Looking for a space-based game that will keep you busy for hours on end? Meet Out There, a trippy sci-fi adventure that puts you in the role of a lonely little astronaut far away from home. Check out our full review or if you’re ready to get your game on, head on over to Google Play and pick this bad boy up for $3.99.
2. The Room 2
Fireproof games brought the sequel to their smash hit The Room to Android this month, and if you’re in the mood for a mysterious adventure, it’s just the thing for you. If you played the first one, you already know what to expect and the sequel is just as good as the original which is a rarity these days. The Room Two can be yours for the low price of $2.99.
There are a slew of surgery games on Google Play, but lets be honest… most of them suck. That changed when Adult Swim brought Amateur Surgeon 3 to Android earlier this month as it’s a great surgery game full of crazy characters and jacked up patients. You generally don’t use chainsaws or car batteries in surgery, and that’s about all you need to know about this nutty game. It’s quite a bit of fun and it’s free to download on Google Play.
4. Mikey Shorts
Noodlecake never fails to impress us whenever they drop a new game, and last week they finally brought the iOS hit Mikey Shorts to Android. It’s a fast-paced old-school platformer that puts you to work sliding and jumping through 84 levels as you shoot for 3-stars and attempt to collect all the golden shorts. There’s plenty to love about Mikey Shorts, and it’ll only set you back a buck.
CCG’s come in many different shapes and forms, and while we’ve seen plenty of them over the past year, we haven’t seen many like Deadman’s Cross from Square Enix. Squeenix dug up some zombies for their next entry into the CCG genre and the game has a little something for everyone between the Deadman Duels, jobs, events and hunts. Yup, you can even do a bit of sniping in Deadman’s Cross. As with most CCG’s, this one’s free and you’ll have a hefty dose of IAP’s at your disposal if you want to get ahead.
Miss that old Flappy Bird? There’s been hundreds of copycat’s to choose from, but Fall Out Bird from Mass Threat is one of our favorites. As the name implies, it’s Flappy Bird with a Fall Out Boy twist. Not much else to say about this one, it’s free and lots of fun if you dig Flappy Bird.
7. Shadow Blade
Crescent Moon Studios released several new games this month, and Shadow Blade was our personal favorite. It’s the story of Kuro, a boy on a quest to become the “Shadow Blade” and the fast-paced nature of the game keeps you coming back for one more go. It looks great, is an absolute blast, and it involves ninjas which is never a bad thing. Shadow Blade is free to download if you want to give it a go.
