This Week’s New Android Games: The Weekly Roundup – Sep 07, 2018

New Android games: the weekly roundup

This week’s new Android games include a new game from the developer behind Knife Hit, toast catching, cute bears, The Doctor, and some downhill mountain biking action.

As always, while the new free Android games on this list might get the most attention, don’t overlook new paid and free to try titles. Paid games can often provide a better value as they’re not trying to push you towards in app purchases or wasting your time with advertisements.

New Android Games Released This Week

Alphabear 2: Return of the BLANK

The bears are back for more word game adventures in the first of this week’s new Android games. The sequel to Spry Fox’s 2016 hit word game offers players more than 100 cute bears to collect, different costumes, and of course lots of words to spell. This is a great game for anyone who’s looking for a word game with more to offer than just a virtually endless amount of levels. Alphabear 2 is free and contains ads and in app purchases.

Viva La Toast

Viva La Revolution Toast! The new game from Koshioshi has players try and catch as many falling pieces of toast as they can. The game’s great visuals are combined with simple one tap controls to make an approachable experience. As with many simple arcade titles, Viva La Toast isn’t exactly the deepest experience but it still offers enough fun to warrant a download. Viva La Toast is free and contains ads and in app purchases.

Doctor Who Infinity

This follow up to Doctor Who: Legacy brings players a story driven experience with a more complex puzzle foundation. The game is divided into multiple stories, each written for the game and backed up by comic book style art. It’s a fun experience for Doctor Who fans but is unlikely to appeal to those just looking for a puzzle game to pass the time. Doctor Who Infinity is free to try and players can unlock more content using in app purchases.

Bike Unchained 2

Red Bull’s mountain biking game is back, this time around offering gamers the chance to play in portrait mode. Gamers can compete in the trick focused slopestyle mode or race in downhill races against the ghosts of other players. Bike Unchained 2 is free and contains ads and in app purchases.

Tales of Erin

The lone RPG among this week’s new Android games, Tales of Erin is the English language version of Sapphire Sphere, a hero collection RPG previously only available in parts of Asia. The game gives players a wide range of characters to collect but doesn’t offer much in terms of gameplay. The more story focused game has players build teams and activate skills when in battle, but is otherwise a largely automated experience. Tales of Erin is free and contains in app purchases.
