It’s here. After months of waiting, we can finally download and play the hugely ambitious Breath of the Wild-alike Genshin Impact. But that’s not all the Google Play Store has to offer this week, with the slightly eccentric Monopoly Sudoku and the solid-looking Creatures of Aether also making an appearance.
There are bargains to be had, too, and all three of the games we’ve chosen to highlight this week are absolutely bangers. Read on to find out more.
Monopoly Sudoku is the latest game to roll off the Marmalade Games production line. While the premise sounds intriguing, if only because it’s difficult to see how Monopoly and Sudoku could be fused together, in truth it’s mostly Sudoku with a dash of Monopoly stringing the puzzles together.
Creatures of Aether is a free-to-play, PvP card-battler set in the Rivals of Aether universe. It sees you playing with cards based on the characters from the popular PC and console fighting game, and so far it’s going down quite well on the Google Play Store.
Well, it’s here. Genshin Impact, which takes pretty much every leaf out of Breath of the Wild’s book and then adds several extra chapters of its own, is one of the most highly anticipated games of the year. This huge, sprawling, gorgeous action-RPG is free-to-play, so you have absolutely no excuse for not downloading it to see what the fuss is about.
Juicy Realm, from X. D. Network, is currently a third off on Android. This hugely likeable cross-platform co-op twin-stick shooter sees you taking on carnivorous fruit in a dystopian evolutionary future in which everybody’s favorite healthy snack has become the global apex predator.
80 Days is Inkle’s inventive love letter to Jules Verne’s influential tale about a rich man circumnavigating the globe just to show everyone how great he is. The result is an addictive, charming, and endlessly replayable adventure game in which you play as Passepartout helping his employer to achieve his globetrotting dreams.
Space Grunts is a highly original action strategy game which combines straight up shooty arcade action with an innovative turn-based mechanic. It sees you romping around on a space ship, levelling up your weapons, killing everything, and you can pick it up right now for the low low price of $2.49.
