Best new Android and iPhone games (October 18th - October 24th)


If you are wondering about the best new Android and iPhone games, and you don't want to go through hundreds of new games in the app stores, we have picked the very best new releases from the past week right here.

The games included in this round-up are selected only by their quality and with no regards to genre: you will find casual games, puzzlers, racing games, strategy and everything in-between. The paramount criterion is quality and an engaging gameplay. With no further ado, here are the best new games right now in the second half of October 2016.


#1: The Bug Butcher


Price: $3
Genre: Arcade shooter
Download on Android | iOS

The Bug Butcher is a game that bears resemblance to one classic title from the earliest days of console gaming: Super Pang. The arcade shooter seems to have influenced the gameplay a lot, but The Bug Butcher adds distinct 2D art and a sprinkle of humor to its reflex based gameplay dynamic. The huge arsenal of guns adds diversity and there's even a story to explore: you are Harry, a brash and tenacious exterminator who has a knack for decimating bugs, and you have an assignment in an infested futuristic research facility on planet Zoit. Your mission is to survive until the decontamination of the building is complete, hoard coins like his life depended on it, and protect the scientists at all costs.



#2: Break Liner


Price: Free
Genre: Casual
Download on Android | iOS

A meditative experience, Break Liner is a beautiful and immersive casual reflex-based game, where you navigate your ship to break brittle bits of yellow glass. Break one to get one point and extra speed, bump off the black ones, but avoid the red pieces as touching them results in instant death. This unforgiving game requires maximum concentration, and with a rewarding soundtrack and an addictive gameplay, it's definitely worth a look.



#3: Critical Ops


Price: Free
Genre: First-person Shooter
Download on Android | iOS

Critical Ops is an interesting new game that is currently in alpha testing, but it already shows promise: it's a fast-paced FPS that will test your reflexes and tactical skill. Experience the thrill of modern terrorist warfare as you fight a critical strike operation as a counter-terrorist or aim to cause destruction as a terrorist.



#4: Rusty Lake Roots


Price: $3
Genre: Adventure
Download on Android | iOS

Rusty Lake: Roots is a point-and-click adventure that tells the story of James Vanderboom, whose life drastically changes when he plants a special seed in the garden of the house he has inherited. Expand your bloodline by unlocking portraits in the tree of life.



#5: Spingun


Price: Free
Genre: Arcade shooter
Download on Android | iOS

Spingun is a 'manic two-button arcade shooter', where you have two buttons and one spaceship. Goliath is attacking your planet, but you've heroically stayed behind with your ship so your family can evacuate. Spin and gun to survive, and here's how you do it: fly and steer with either single button, or press both buttons at once to fire your ship’s powerful blaster gun. Grab powerups to launch missiles, plasma balls, and flames at your foes. Blast them to bits quick to repair your ship.



#6: Plants vs Zombies Heroes


Price: Free

In this latest installment to the popular series, you get to collect heroes with outrageous and incredible super powers and build your ultimate battle team.

Eating them will literally make him vomit like a fountain. He escapes from his mean aunt Doris in order to get to a birthday party, and needs to use his vomiting superpower to survive a world of angry cyborg chickens... of course."


#9: 1-Bit Rogue


Price: Free
Genre: Roguelike
Download on Android | iOS

1-Bit Rogue is a simple roguelike game that features monochrome graphics with retro pixelart and a chiptune soundtrack for a truly nostalgic PSG feel. The game takes you through a 50-floor randomized dungeon, where you get to defeat dragons and collect artifacts, but be careful because your weapons decay with use. In the game, you get to choose from five classes (including a ninja) and it all ends with a final boss fight.

Price: $5
Genre: Action-adventure
Download on Android | iOS, *new for Android only

This is also a new best games. The Sandbox: Strategy & Tactics is a sequel to the WW2 for Android mobile.
