    I’m pretty sick of tower defense, but anthill looks moderately interesting as does They Need to Be Fed 2.

    Revolt is actually the game on this list that most excites me. I played the heck out of it with my roommates back in the day on PC. I hope multiplayer is planned. I also hope they plan to support controllers like the Moga stuff. Touch controls suck.

    • Thomas Biard

      I never played revolt but I did play Micro-Machines, and Revolt looks like the newer version of that. Micro-Machines was the best game I can remember playing growing up. We would spend hours just trying to knock each other out of each race. I need a phone that I can play it on now haha.

        I remember that game. One of my fav old-school racers – right up there with Rock n’ Roll Racing.

      Hog3d,is a good twist on the tower defence games.

      It was mention here a few days back.

    • CTown

      Are you sick of Tower Defense games or just protecting the castle? “Royale Revolt” is a reverse Tower defense game where you help the main protagonist take his father’s kingdom from the uncles who usurped it. It’s pretty fun. My BrotherAndMe (<- sorry for that) both love the game. Find it for free on Google Play.

  • nikhilverma

    The war machine is here.

  • yourissues

    I’m just going to play them all. I haven’t had a gaming session in a while and I think tomorrow I’m going to kick back, enjoy a drink or two and kill the battery in my phone and tablets by playing non stop.. Yeah that’s the plan

    • Josh Nolan

      House of the dead over kill ..should be on this list

  • Jorge Eslava

    My kid installed the new cut the rope on my phone and it’s not bad at all. Now I just have to find a way to save apps to the sd card in his nabi2 so he stops jacking my phone.

  • donger

    Iron Man.

  • Keys2bonez

    It’s interesting that Blitz Brigade is listed as a game that is coming soon. Not sure what the definition of soon is, but there has been nearly no information since a launch trailer. Last I heard it was released in France only and the company wasn’t in any type of hurry to get it released to any other country.

    Do you guys know something I don’t? :)

  • Nicholas Sandberg

    Wow, lots of games already out in Google Play.
    Btw, last nite my kid told me that there is Android version of Zuma published in Google Play and it was interesting!
