Top 10 Android game releases this week: Into the Dead, Epoch, Rockpocalypse, Ice Rage


Welcome back to Android Gaming Weekly, our weekly recap to focus on new releases. We still plan to cover upcoming releases and games we’re playing, but this column is dedicated to new games you can install and start playing right now. Check out our top picks and let us know if you have any suggestions for next week in the comments below.

Into the Dead

Description: In a world overrun with the Dead, you have survived… but for how long? Into the Dead throws you into the gruesome world of the zombie apocalypse where there are no second chances. Do what you have to in order to stay alive, keep moving as fast as you can, and protect yourself by any means necessary. When the Dead are rising, run!



Description: Follow the echoes of a lost civilization in a visually-stunning post-apocalyptic world where only robots survive to fight a never-ending war. Control your character with intuitive finger swipes. Make split-second tactical decisions, take cover, select targets, dodge incoming fire, utilize special abilities, and launch countermeasures! Battle escalating waves of robots in arena-style combat, and upgrade yourself with pieces torn from your fallen enemies! Configure your robot with dozens of weapons, armors, boosters and counters.


Badayer Racing

Description: Play the toughest off-road racing game on your device, where boost is your only friend. Bring your mad skills to the game and get beaten before you learn how to beat the game. The name of the game is Boost Boost Boost! Work your way on a career mode against tough opponents to become a pro. Win championship, unlock cars, while acting as an undercover agent and helping a champion racer in a story. Play against your real friends online and show them who is the boss. Challenge them to fast and furious driving events.


Recess Riot

Description: From the creators of the cult hit game Super Mega Worm, comes a new and fresh arcade game. Recess Riot is an unique and challenging Action/Arcade game comprised of multiple game modes. Jump mode is a timing based jump rope game with a twist. Ropers will change rope speed and patterns. Ropers will also shift left and right to keep the players on their toes. Advance stages will require players to jump rope and dodge incoming objects simultaneously.


Frederic Resurrection of Music


Step into Frederic Chopin’s shoes, and go on a magical journey. Accompany Chopin in his amazing journey full of humorous events. Battle your opponents in musical duels. Laugh till your stomach hurts with an hour of animated comic. Play through nine catchy arrangements of Chopin’s greatest classics. Practice your skills until perfection.


Ice Rage

Description: Ice Rage brings ice hockey into the 21st century, whilst paying tribute to 1984’s Hat Trick. Players face off across a ice rink, in a hockey duel — one player and one keeper one each side. Play is rapid and rough, with players spending as much time eating the ice as on their feet. There are three different single player modes (Tournament, Quick Match and Deathmatch) and a single-device multiplayer.


Nimble Quest

Description: From the creators of Tiny Tower, Sky Burger and Pocket Planes comes Nimble Quest! Lead a conga line of heroes to glory against hordes of enemies across an endless number of stages. How many enemies can you defeat? Swipe to steer your unstoppable (seriously, you can’t stop) party as they cut a path of destruction through levels filled with different enemies and power-ups. Unlock and level up heroes to increase the size of your party and make them more powerful. Can your party make it from the tranquility of the Forest to the fire and brimstone of the Depths?


Mega Run

Description: From the creators of the #1 hit Mega Jump! Redford’s brother and sister have been kidnapped by a mysterious monster and taken far away! Join Redford on an amazing adventure across multiple worlds and dozens of challenging stages. Find Redford’s lost family and discover new worlds to explore by following the trail of stolen coins and Forest Gems!


After Burner Climax

Description: Take to the skies and experience blazing speeds in the World’s fastest fighter jets! After Burner Climax is fast and frantic arcade-style action, putting you in the cockpit of the world’s fastest fighter plane. Dodge planes, rockets and bullets while trying to target multiple on-screen enemy aircraft. Built for all skill levels, everyone will be able to take to the air and blaze through a branching storyline of over 20 stages.




Description: Studio 51, Hollywood, CA. The Rock is on set filming his latest movie when suddenly everything goes terribly, horribly wrong. People on the lot are changing – becoming infected with a mysterious pathogen that turns them into violent, angry beasts. The Rock knows he is the only one who can end it and end it now – but to do so he must battle his way though the different sound stages to get to the source of the problem and save us all.

    I love Ice Rage. If you never played it, trust me, download it. You will love it. Gonna download it on my Nexus 7 now! Had Epoch on my iPad, it got rave reviews. Never had the chance to play it because I had so many FPS.

    Taylor, do you know why games and apps on iOS always have free app promotions but you rarely see that on Android? I purchased many apps but also got a ton of them free on my iOS devices.

      That’s because in play store, if you make an app free, you can’t add a price to it anymore. iOS app store doesn’t have this restriction. That’s why iOS apps can have a “Free for today” sale while android apps can’t.

        The Play store has sales on a regular basis, I recall back in December where many apps were 10c for a day (in the US, don’t know how other markets got priced) and the prices went up the next day.

    Into the Dead was one of those games that was great on iOS, and sorely missing on Android. The touch controls seem a little wonky on the Nexus 4, but otherwise it’s awesome.

  • Preston Jenkins
