Looking for some neat new games to play on your Android smartphone? If that’s the case, you might be pleased to hear that several titles that are usually paid are now available for free on Google Play.
This collection features several different genres, so we’ve made sure to include a video (where available) or gameplay image and a description below each title in order to aid you in the selection process.
Also, make sure to check out the end of sale times for each game below the respective download link. At the time of writing (December 6th), some of these titles only have a few hours left in their “freebie” period, so it’s advisable to download anything that you like fast. Without further ado, let’s see what’s on the list!
klocki is a really neat puzzle game from the developer of the popular title Hook. The player is tasked with connecting all the lines on various geometric shapes. The graphics are clean, minimalistic, and visually pleasing, while the calming music adds to the overall “feel good” atmosphere of the title.
If you’re a fan of arcade games, Diamo XL will not disappoint. You have to move a rotating square along the lines of four triangles which form a diamond. “Completing” the diamond gives you points. Moving circles also spawn at random locations and you can try to reach them for extra points, but the game also likes to hurl various projectiles at you to make things difficult. If you crash into one of these it’s game over.
Once you start moving to one of the five zones (the white squares where the triangles connect), you can’t go back, so your only option is to try and calculate if you’re going to crash into a projectile. You can also tap on a direction key twice to move faster. This is an interesting risk / reward mechanic as maintaining mobility and a good speed increases your score but also the likelihood of you crashing into something.
Dream City Living is a life simulation role-playing game. The main character of this title is a girl called Priscilla Hudson. She just moved to a new city with some cash but doesn’t have a job and isn’t particularly skilled at anything. As the player, you have to do your best to survive in this new environment by getting a job and a place to stay.
There are multiple career paths to available(including some hidden ones like paranormal investigator or vigilante), more than 30 interior locations to explore, and a total of 51 quests to complete. The game even features dynamic systems for the economy, crime rates, and the weather. There’s a lot to explore in Dream City Living, which will certainly keep fans of this genre playing for a long time.
Got a VR headset laying around? If so, you might want to give City Defender VR a try. The game is rather straightforward – you play this robot who has to protect a city from a barrage of missiles with the help of his special shields. Missiles have different colors, and each type is blocked by a shield that matches its hue. The game is compatible with Google Cardboard and a lot of other headsets, but if you want to move your hands around, you’ll need a motion controller.
Survival Online GO is a game that resembles Minecraft a lot but is played from a third-person perspective. You gather resources, craft items, hunt wild animals, construct buildings, and explore the island. There are also other players around with which you can team up with or try to kill.
