1. Implosion – Never Lose Hope
You’ll find out how awesome this game is once you sit through the opening moments of the prologue cinematic. You’ll take control of your powerful warrior while packed inside a mobile robotic battle suit. The alien species that look to rip you to shreds will probably never get a chance since your character is a hack and slashing machine. The God of War and Devil May Cry inspired gameplay present within this release will endear it to fans of both franchises. You’ll have a grand old time as you mow down everything in your way with flashy combos and evade their advances.
2. Tomb Raider 1
The 1st Tomb Raider released on a bevy of consoles back in 1996 and changed the landscape of action/adventure games. Now that we have arrived in 2015, Android mobile devices are powerful enough to run past games that were available on early to late 90’s consoles. Lara Croft’s 1st adventure has been ported to Android devices and it looks and feels pretty great. The epic stages, tough puzzles and intense standoffs with intimidating beasts are all present here. You can enjoy this port even more with the use of mobile game controllers, too.
