The selection of games on Android grows at a rapid pace just like it does with apps, and just so you don't miss out on any of the latest and greatest games, we've put together a new list of the top games on Android for October. No matter what your taste is in mobile games chances are there is something for you on this list, and if you enjoy pretty much everything then you have a ton of new stuff to check out over the weekend.
Ski Safari 2
Ski Safari 2 continues on the popularity of the first game, but adds tons of new improvements as well as new levels to love. The main goal is to race down the mountain and escape the dangers screaming towards you like avalanches, lava, and more. You can ride various vehicles and employ the help of some friendly animals in the process.
Puzzle & Glory
This is the latest title from SEGA and is a mix of match-3 puzzle and RPG games. There is some story-based content as well as multiple characters to play in a fantasy-based setting, but combat is all carried out like a match 3 puzzle title where you have to match like-colored gems to unleash attacks and special skills. You can even play with friends, create guilds, and compete in PvP combat against other players.
FIFA 16 Ultimate Team
If you're a soccer/football fan, then there is no greater game on mobile to sink your teeth into the action than EA's recently released FIFA 16 Ultimate Team. An all-new game engine introduces top-notch 3D visuals and as the name suggests you can built your ultimate team and lead them to victory. The game features a huge roster of teams and players from all over the world and if you end up with someone you don't like you can now exchange players.
If you're in the mood for some knightly adventures, SirVival looks to provide you with just that. The gameplay feels like a sidescrolling platformer laced with action, and you'll play as the brave knight Sir Vival as he races to rescue the princess Parsnip. Armed with your trusty horse you can jump to avoid traps and other dangers, punch enemies in the face with your lance and explore a handful of wondrous lands all animated to appear in a storybook sort of art style.
Eternity Warriors 4
If you favor hack and slash action RPG games with tons of monsters, loads of loot, and cool graphics, Eternity Warriors 4 is the latest title to try and give all those things to you. It offers up three different hero types to select then it's all about bringing down your enemies in an action RPG/dungeon crawler style of gameplay. Aside from the single player content, there's PvP combat and guild creation abilities to add a little bit of multiplayer action.
While games like Eternity Warriors 4 are more about the action, Exos Saga is an RPG that is more about the story. That doesn't mean it skimps on the action, or the pretty visuals though. This is a side-scrolling RPG with completely hand drawn art so both combat and the game overall look great, and it offers up both single player and multiplayer gameplay elements. You can collect tons of heroes to build up the perfect team and aside from normal quests you can engage in daily and raid dungeons, the arena to test your skills against other players, and the once-a-day treasure island to pick up daily rewards.
Freeze! 2, just like the original game is a puzzle arcade title where you'll be trying to help the game's characters escape from the alien prison by twisting and rotating the screen in just the right way to help them advance. With the same great gameplay of the original but even more levels to play through and updated graphics that make the game look better than the first, Freeze! 2 should captivate any lover of puzzles.
PewDiePie: Legend Of Brofist
Legend of Brofist is an action platformer title starring hit YouTube game streamer the Pewds (PewDiePie) that kind of feels like an homage to older games from the 80's and 90's. There's boss fights to engage in, you can play against your friends and like many old retro games there's a bunch of secrets to discover. One of the coolest things though is that the game has tons of voice acting from a handful of different YouTube stars which is kind of a nice touch.
HoPiKo is a game all about reflexes. You'll need to be fast and on point to make sure you advance through this gauntlet of nanobyte viruses that killed off video games. Each level is split up into five mini stages where you'll start off on a platform with a main goal of trying to destroy the nanobytes on that stage. Various obstacles stand in your way and you'll have to not only navigate around them but you'll have to do it quickly before time runs out and you have to start all over.
Need for Speed No Limits
This is EA's latest racer in the Need for Speed series built specifically for mobile devices. It's got lush graphics, tons of customizable cars, and loads of races as you try to climb the ranks of the underground racing scene. This is a free title so there are some IAPs involved, but they are completely optional and all you need to give the game is time to advance. You can build cars and tune them up into ultimate racing machines, compete in limited tournaments against other players, and also race in special event types geared towards a specific car. If you like racing titles, there's lots to love here.
