The top 10 Android games of the month [July 2017]

You might think that the month of July, being smack in the middle of vacation season, would be a bit slow compared to the rest of the year in terms of big releases. But you’d be wrong. We’ve picked 10 of the best Android releases from all the games to come out in the Uptodown catalogue throughout this month. And what a lush summer harvest it is!

Torchlight Mobile

The “diablo-like” from Runic Games was a pleasant surprise in 2009 that, besides being inspired by the Blizzard saga, came from a studio made up of ex-Blizzard developers. Years later we’ve got this adaptation of the Torchlight universe for Android devices that retains much of its charms and adds gameplays and tweaks to be found on smartphone MMOs.

A Planet of Mine

It’s hard to translate the elaborate subgenre of 4X strategy to a small screen given the enormous management options that games like this require. A Planet of Mine is a rarity in this regard that manages to bring the gameplays of planetary conquest, city growth, and interaction with other civilizations through space travel. And best of all, it does it with clarity and ease in the controls that make it completely appropriate for running on mobile devices. [Download APK] [Our blog review]

Grand Prix Story 2

Kairosoft games are a proper institution on mobile platforms, with their trademarks being their cutesy pixellated graphics in isometric settings and gameplays based on micromanagement, whether of a video game developer or university system. In this latest title you’re in charge of a Formula 1 team, and have to handle all its internal issues, from the maintenance of the cars to the hiring of drivers to actually managing the race itself. [Download] [Our blog review]

Mafia Revenge

Any deviation from the standard meat and two veg of the Android gaming market is a welcome relief. Mafia Revenge focuses on offering roving battles between rival factions of the mob, controlling your character in real time as he shoots at the enemy’s car. What’s truly interesting about this is that the fights are against other human players – not to mention that you can make all kinds of upgrades to your car, weapons, and special skills. [Download] [Our blog review]

Drop Wizard Tower

Nostalgia is a highly powerful weapon, and the people at Nitrome know it. With Drop Wizard Tower they make a sure bet with gameplays drawn from arcade classics like Bubble Bobble and Snow Brows – big names already that are dressed up even further with Nitrome’s trademark pixel art that brings the sweet feeling of the old days right to your Android device.

World of Warships Blitz

Wargaming already hit the jackpot a few years ago with World of Tanks, so it was just a matter of time till they tried to tried to exploit the brand with a rainbow of different subproducts. One of them was World of Warships, another freemium game for PC that dropped you into faceoffs between warships, and has now come out in a spot-on adaptation for Android devices. As the original formula was completely arcade-style, fitting the controls onto a touchscreen was a piece of cake. [Download]

Kraken Land

It’s hard to find good 3D platformers that bring back the magic of some of the classic console titles (here’s looking at you, Nintendo), but surprising as it seems, Kraken Land – which still presents itself as a humble and unambitious title, has become a welcome surprise in offering a game that attempts to measure up to legends like the latest Mario games on consoles. For obviously reasons it doesn’t get quite that far, but it certainly does deliver the feeling we’re looking for in a game with these features. [Download] [Our blog review]

SIEGE: Titan Wars

How would you explain to a hard-core Clash Royale enthusiast that there’s life beyond their current obsession? SIEGE: Titan Wars has only been out for a short time but it’s managed to carve out its own niche thanks to a system that, despite being based on the blockbuster from Supercell, differentiates itself enough to have its own identity. More elaborate graphics and battles with more troops on the field make it a standout offering. [Download] [Our blog review]

SIEGE: Titan Wars

DreamWorks Universe of Legends

Movie licenses are rich sauce for video game recipes, although in some cases their fame isn’t exactly a good thing. DreamWorks has a few names that have some life left in them, but to sweeten the packaging they’ve opted to bring them all together into one title: DreamWorks Universe of Legends is an action game starring characters from Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar, Shrek, and How to Train Your Dragon.

Tales of the Rays

Tales Of is an acclaimed JRPG saga for consoles that’s now made the jump to Android devices with a game with high production values. This spinoff retains the free-movement combat system that’s the trademark of all Tales Of games. [Download] [Our blog review]
