In terms of sheer numbers, Google’s Android has been bigger than Apple’s iOS for some time now – it reached 1 billion active users in mid-2014.
That has made Android a bigger priority than it used to be for many more app developers: in 2016, lots of prominent new apps debut simultaneously on Android and iOS, with some even appearing on Android first.
This game is beautifully designed and it has been developed by the same folks who bought you 1010. It is a block puzzle game and your aim is to merge blocks to get higher blocks on the board. It is a simple and intuitive game which is enjoyable to play. The best part about the game is that there is unlimited lives and there is no time limits either!
Alto’s Adventure (Free + IAP)
One of the most lovely looking mobile games in recent memory: this is a snowboarding game that deliberately zooms out its viewpoint for an emphasis on the background scenery. Not that it’s all looks: the touchscreen controls as you swoop and leap through the snowy mountains are perfect too.
The Walking Dead: Michonne (£4.27 + IAP)
This is the return of Telltale Games excellent episodic-adventure series based on The Walking Dead – the comic books, note. This focuses on the Michonne character’s absence from the main plotline, and what she was doing (non-spoiler: zombies are involved). It’s another highly playable adventure, with more episodes to come.
GTA: Liberty City Stories (£4.99)
Old Grand Theft Auto games are being ported to mobile at a steady rate of one a year, with the latest on Android being Liberty City Stories. The story of Toni Cipriani returning to his mob-scarred home city remains fresh after all these years, with the familiar mix of driving, fighting and enthusiastic swearing intact.
Final Fantasy IX (£15.99)
A big price (in mobile terms) for a big game – this weighs in at 3.2GB. If you love the Final Fantasy games, though, it’s well worth the cost and space. This is one of the best episodes of the classic RPG, faithfully translated to the touchscreen. Whether you’re replaying it from your youth or new to the game, it’s a joy.
