10 best new android games and apps of 2016 so far

Assassin’s Creed Identity (GAME)

Assassin’s Creed Identity is an action-RPG that’s set in the universe of the acclaimed franchise. You’ll be able to create your own character, customize them, and level them up as you see fit. It has excellent graphics and decent game play complete with various missions and quests, loot, gear, and various locations to explore. The game is pretty good, but it is new and has seen a few release day bugs that have kept people from enjoying it as much as they could be so beware of that

Price: Free




5217 (APP)

5217 is an app that aims to increase your productivity. The central premise is that you can use it to time intervals where you work for 52 minutes followed by a 17 minute break. This routine is supposed to help you work better and the app will log how many cycles you went through during your work day. It’s a simple app with a clean, colorful design and recent updates have added Android Wear support. It’s inexpensive, which is nice, and has no in-app purchases

Price: $0.99




Vector 2 (GAME)

Vector 2 is one of the more unique platformers available right now. Much like its predecessor, it’s a platformer with parkour elements where you must jump around on all sorts of obstacles to avoid being captured by the proverbial man. This iteration features gear that you can find and equip, stunts that you can perform, and more. It does run on a much more aggressive freemium system than the first game which has made some people understandably mad, but it’s worth a shot.

Beme is a social networking app that allows you to take video of what you’re doing and post it online. Unlike most other networks that do a similar function, this one doesn’t let you see or edit the video before you post it online so whatever your phone sees is what everyone else sees. It’s a fun concept, and refreshing since there are no filters or editing. It’s worth a shot if you’re looking for something unique.

Price: Free





Crashing Season (GAME)

Crashing Season is kind of a hybrid between an infinite runner and a survival game. Your goal is to run around, survive wave after wave of bad guys, and defeat bosses to continue on to the next level. It has some charming graphics, easy mechanics, and plenty of content to unlock. You’ll be able to find various animals that you can play with and, as with most freemium games, it has boosts, power ups, and accessories that you can either find or buy. It’s a good little time waster, if nothing else.

Price: Free



Fallout 4 Live Wallpaper (APP)

Fallout 4 Live Wallpaper is, as you may have guessed, a live wallpaper app that is themed like Fallout 4. It’s a simple wallpaper and it will display five bobble-heads that move, wobble, and sway depending on how you move your device and your home screens. There is also a camera panning effect as you scroll. The bobble-heads you can pick are customizable but overall, you can’t change it all that much. It strikes a good balance between being fun, but not too flashy and it’s entirely free.

Price: Free






Taichi Panda: Heroes (GAME)

Taichi Panda: Heroes is the spiritual successor to Taichi Panda. Both of them are MMO-style action RPGs that allows you to gather whole parties of characters, explore various locations, and complete various missions. In classic MMO style, it also allows for co-op mode where you can battle raid bosses together with friends and you can join guilds so you can play with the same people. It’s a fun little adventure with some decent graphics. It has had a few release issues reported, so do beware of those.

Price: Free





Join (APP)

Join is a pretty nifty little app that can do some awesome stuff. It’s a service that connects your Android device to your web-enabled PC similar to how Pushbullet does it except this costs $4.99 once instead of a subscription. You can reply to messages from most services, check notifications, share your clipboard, and it even comes with Tasker integration, encryption, and file sharing. You can try it out for free with a 30-day trial before you buy it. There is a Chrome extension and a Windows 10 app.

Price: $4.99




Pokemon TCG Online (GAME)

After a long time and a ton of imitations, we finally have a Pokemon Trading Card game on mobile. The sad news is that it’s not altogether different from other trading games. You’ll build a deck, duel other people, and then you’ll be given more cards to expand your collection. You’ll be able to build your own decks and enter into tournaments. The whole game is played online against other players and, as you may have guessed, the in-app purchases allow you to purchase more cards.

Price: Free
