Android Game Trailers: Western Story, Arc Squadron, Sonic Jump, Star Command


Every week we cover the latest Android game releases, but we thought it would be fun to have a separate column that focuses on upcoming titles. Today we’ll start a new experiment, Android Game Trailers, where we highlight the best video teasers for new games that are coming soon to Android. Check out the clips after the break and let us know if you spot any new trailers that we should feature next week.

    I’ve been keeping a close eye on Star Command and the game looks fantastic! I’m really liking the pixel art and the game play looks challenging yet fun. With the ability to make your own custom ships as well as level up your crew members and ship sectors, this game will definitely be a keeper!

    I only wish I was able to get in on their Kickstarter campaign when it was still open…

    • Anthony E

      I’ve been following them for a long time also. I’ve never been so excited for a mobile phone game. hehe.

      On a side note: I don’t think trailers like the battle friends one should be included in the list. That video was just a waste of bandwidth.

  • droilfade

    Wow! lots of nice games to look forward to. I hope arc squadron is as much fun to play as to look at. Good to know I won’t be bored sitting indoors this winter.

    • iamXiV92a

      All the videos are blocked here at the job… I’ll have to look up Arc Squadron later today!

      • iamXiV92a

        Yeah definitely going to have to purchase Arc Squadron… ::drool::

  • Ben

    Arc squadron looks like too much fun! I am a big fan of on rail shooters (and free movement shooters with interesting environments and missions) and this is a game I will instantly buy if the reviews are good and if it is not free to play. Thanks for this list..
