2-Bit Cowboy2-Bit Cowboy

If you loved Game Boy and you have a thing for western themed video games, 2-Bit Cowboy is one action platformer you won’t want to miss. It’ll cost you $0.99, and for that you’ll be able to tackle challenges and track down enemies, earn rewards and find hidden loot, and play as a cowboy or cowgirl as you explore huge levels and gamble all your money away at casinos, or drink it down at saloons. In the midst of all the fun don’t forget your main goal though, to stop the Bitty Gang.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1

Crossy RoadAH Crossy Road-1

Nothing spells addiction like Crossy Road. This nostalgia-filled wonder will make you fondly remember the days of Frogger, but Crossy Road amplifies everything by adding in new elements, like different things besides cars to dodge as you attempt to cross the road, raging rivers to cross, and coins to collect which you can use to buy rewards, and tons of different characters to unlock.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1

Stunt Rush – 3DStunt Rush 3D

Test your skills in this 3D arcade racer filled with vivid neon colors and loads of lovable polygonal graphics. You’ll drive powerful racing buggy cars as you attempt to make through intense levels with jumps and loops, and you can rewind time backwards to re-do jumps just in case you didn’t have enough fun the first time. In the realm of games that provide mindless fun with not a lot of requirements to pay attention to stories or character development, Stunt Rush – 3D is one of the better titles. It’s definitely worth checking out.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1

Nubs’ Adventure – Early AccessNubs' Adventure

Honestly, early access or not, Nubs’ Adventure is just too awesome not to put on this list. The developer refers to the game as an exploratory platformer, which we’d say is hitting the nail right on the head. The goal is to help Nub rebuild his home, which was destroyed by “evil reds”, the enemies that happen to games antagonists. During Nubs’ journey he’ll encounter both friends and foes which want to help and hurt him. There’s even a giant worm. Everyone loves giant worms. Since this is early access, we have to stress that there may be some bugs and the game is absolutely, 100% not complete. This is clearly stated. The game is also free in the early access state, with no ads and it’s actually pretty cool. Seriously, give it a go.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1


Those who loved the titles in the Worms series should definitely take a peek at Flockers, a puzzle game from the creators of Worms, Team 17 Digital. Help the sheep escape from the tyrannical grasp of the worms who are only content with using the sheep as weapons. Traverse through traps and avoid dastardly pits and other manners of malefic mayhem. There are 60 different levels to play through and 18 unlockable sheep to collect, and Flockers supports Google Play Games with leaderboards and achievements.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1

Gunslugs 2Gunslugs 2

Gunslugs 2 is the sequel to the popular retro action title Gunslugs, released by Orangepixel a few years ago. It adds in all kinds of new enemies while still paying homage to the classic 80’s and 90’s action flicks and taking inspiration from films like the expendables, giving you a cast of characters to play that consists of aging heroes that are forced back into action. There’s tons of awesome retro music and sounds, the cornerstone of any good game, and of course there’s plenty of weapons to shoot and lots of explosions. There’s 7 worlds to blast your way through as you kick ass and take names, and there’s 8 levels per world. The game will set you back a few bucks, but it looks pretty fun so that seems worth it.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1

Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiderssky gamblers

Sky Gamblers is all about dog fights and WWII era plane battles. The graphics quality is actually pretty good, which is a pleasant surprise for a game that focuses on high-octane multiplayer action. There’s a huge historic fleet of planes to collect and fly, and there’s plenty of real life locations which gives Sky Gamblers a little more of an immserive feel.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1

SOL InvictusSOL Invictus

SOL Invictus is a popular Gamebook sequel to Heavy Metal Thunder from Cubus Games. It focuses on a Sci-Fi based theme with diverse characters, and a vast narrative with a robust storyline for a great RPG experience. This is a gamebook so there is plenty of reading involved too, but there is a good mix of awesome artwork and some cool combat elements, it also features multiple save slots so you can play in up to three stories at once.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1
