Da ist es Top Apps im Oktober: Die besten Apps und Spiele für iOS und Android. Das neue kostenlose Spiel "Pokémon Duel" für Ihr Android-Gerät lässt Sie mit den kleinen Taschenmonstern taktisch anspruchsvolle Duelle austragen. Derzeit .
The first two Riptide games had you zoom along undulating watery circuits surrounded by gleaming metal towers. Renegade offers another slice of splashy futuristic racing, but this time finds you immersed in the seedy underbelly of the sport.
Sensible racers get nothing. The career mode finds you earning cash, upgrading your ride, and probably ignoring the slightly tiresome story bits. The racing, though, is superb — an exhilarating mix of old-school arcade thrills and modern mobile touchscreen smarts.
Samorost 3 is a love letter to classic point-and-click adventure games. You explore your surroundings, unearth objects, and then figure out where best to use them.
The storyline is bonkers, involving a mad monk who used a massive mechanical hydra to smash up a load of planetoids.
You, as an ambitious space-obsessed gnome, must figure out how to set things right. Just two magical moments among many in one of the finest examples of adventuring on Android.
Mushroom 11 finds you exploring the decaying ruins of a devastated world. And you do so as a blob of green goo. Over time, you learn how this can urge the blob to move in certain ways, or how you can split it in two, so half can flick a switch, while the other half moves onward.
This probably sounds a bit weird — and it is. But Mushroom 11 is perfectly suited to the touchscreen. There are moments of frustration — the odd difficulty wall.
But with regular restart points, and countless ingenious obstacles and puzzles, Mushroom 11 is a strange creature you should immediately squeeze into whatever space exists on your Android device.
In the late s, Space Invaders invited you to blast rows of invaders. In the mids, Arkanoid revamped Breakout, having you use a bat-like spaceship to belt a ball at space bricks.
Now, Arkanoid vs Space Invaders mashes the two titles together — and, surprisingly, it works very nicely. Now and again, Arkanoid is recalled more directly in a special attack that has you belt a ball around the place after firing it into action using a massive space bow.
Increasingly, though, the game is laced with strategy, since your real enemy is time. In platform adventure The Big Journey , fat cat Mr.
Whiskers is on a mission. The chef behind his favorite dumplings has disappeared, and so the brave feline sets out to find him.
The journey finds the chubby kitty rolling and leaping across — and through — all kinds of vibrant landscapes, packed with hills, tunnels, and enemies.
But The Big Journey very much has its own character, not least in the knowing humor peppered throughout what might otherwise have been a saccharine child-like storyline about a gluttonous cartoon cat.
You play as Ruth, a young woman living on a remote farm in a s Norwegian fjord. She makes dairy products, sold to a town several hours away. Then, without warning, a massive gold spaceship descends, stealing her cows.
To say much more would spoil things, but we can say that this old-school adventure is a very pleasant way to spend a few hours.
The puzzles are logical yet satisfying; the visuals are gorgeous; and the game amusingly provides all of its narrative in rhyme, which is pleasingly quaint and nicely different.
Hero of the hour Dennis finds himself unicycling naked in this gorgeous platform game best described as flat-out nuts. In iCycle , you dodder left or right, leap over obstacles, and break your fall with a handy umbrella, all the while attempting to grab ice as surreal landscapes collapse and morph around you.
The puzzling is more variable. The quest to locate your kidnapped grandfather requires defeating numerous logic puzzles.
Anyone who thought Nintendo would convert a standard handheld take on Mario to Android was always on a hiding to nothing. Still, really smart level design wins the day, and completists will have fun replaying the world tour mode time and again to collect the many hard-to-reach coins.
But somehow Card Thief cleverly mashes up cards and sneaking about. The game takes place on a three-by-three grid of cards.
For each move, you plan a route to avoid getting duffed up by guards although pickpocketing them on the way past is fair game, obviously , loot a chest, and make for an exit.
Card Thief is not the easiest game to get into, with its lengthy tutorial and weird spin on cards. But this is a game with plenty of nuance and depth that becomes increasingly rewarding the more you play, gradually unlocking its secrets.
There are so many questions there not least: That game where you cast a shadow on the wall and attempt to make a vaguely recognizable rabbit?
The game looks gorgeous, with stunning lighting effects and objects that look genuinely real as they dangle in the air. Mostly though, this is a game about tactility and contemplation — it begs to be explored, and to make use of your digits in a way virtual D-pads could never hope to compete with.
You might have played enough automatic runners to last several lifetimes, but Chameleon Run nonetheless deserves to be on your Android device.
Each level has been meticulously designed, which elevates Chameleon Run beyond its algorithmically generated contemporaries.
Like the best platform games, you must commit every platform and gap to memory to succeed. With the latter, you can smash your head into a platform above to give you one more chance to leap forward and not tumble into the void.
Bereft of a story, the game simply tasks you with guiding a trundling cube to the end of each blocky level.
Along the way, you grab tiny glowing cubes. On reaching the goal, you get graded on your abilities. The isometric visuals are sharp, and the head-bobbing soundtrack urges you onwards.
The level design is the real star, though, with surprisingly imaginative objectives and hazards hewn from the isometric landscape.
Try out the level demo. Grab Edge Extended , which is every bit as good as the original. Harking back to classic side-on platformers, Traps n' Gemstones dumps an Indiana Jones wannabe into a massive pyramid, filled with mummies, spiders and traps; from here he must figure out how to steal all the bling, uncover all the secrets, and then finally escape.
Beyond having you leap about, grab diamonds, and keep indigenous explorer-killing critters at bay, Traps n' Gemstones is keen to have you explore.
Get killed and you can carry on from where you left off. More of a hardcore player? You awake to find a letter from your father, who it turns out has gone from your life.
You get a chapter for free, to test how the game works on your device its visual clout means fairly powerful Android devices are recommended ; a single IAP unlocks the rest.
In this compelling and unique puzzle game, you control the actions of a worker drone by way of programming-like sequences. These are arranged via drag and drop on a board at the right-hand side of the screen.
Much like Boulder Dash, Captain Cowboy is mostly about not being crushed by massive rocks — you dig paths through dirt, aiming to strategically use boulders to take out threats rather than your own head.
But everything here is played out without stress due to endless continues and sometimes in slow motion when floating through zero-gravity sections of space.
Tension is replaced by exploration, and single-screen arcade thrills are sacrificed for a longer game. In the fantasy world of Solitairica , battles are fought to the death by way of cards.
Then there are spells you cast by way of collected energies. Meanwhile, the creatures strike back with their own unique attacks, from strange worm-like beings nibbling your head, to grumpy forest dwellers making your cards grow beards.
In short, then, a modicum of fantasy role-playing wrapped around an entertaining and approachable card game. And on Android, you have the advantage of the game being free — a one-off IAP only figures if you want to avoid watching adverts, and have access to alternate decks to try your luck as a different character.
For a game that eventually pushes your observation skills, precision and nerve to breaking point, Linia is almost absurdly easy at first.
The aim is to spear them in order, by slicing through shapes below. This is simple enough when the shapes are static. The end result is kind of a minimal, artistic, exactness-obsessed take on Fruit Ninja.
Anyone expecting the kind of free-roaming racing from the console versions of this title are going to be miffed, but Need for Speed: Most Wanted is nonetheless one of the finest games of its kind on Android.
Yes, the tracks are linear, with only the odd shortcut, but the actual racing bit is superb. You belt along the seedy streets of a drab, gray city, trying to win events that will boost your ego and reputation alike.
Wins swell your coffers, enabling you to buy new vehicles for entering special events. The game looks gorgeous on Android and has a high-octane soundtrack to urge you onwards.
It reimagines the console stealth shooter as a dinky clockwork boardgame. Agent 47 scoots about, aiming to literally knock enemies off the board, and then reach and bump off his primary target.
And the puzzles are well designed, too, with distinct objectives that often require multiple solutions to be found. You have to feel for the little beastie in Badland 2.
Having somehow survived all manner of horrors last time round, the winged critter is now hurled into an even deadlier circle of hell.
As before, the aim is to reach an exit, avoiding traps such as massive saw-blades, bubbling magma, and flamethrowers belching toasty death in all directions.
Your means of survival is mostly to flap a bit. This time, though, rather than prod the screen to flap rightwards, you can flap left or right, which comes in handy for navigating deranged levels that now scroll in all directions.
There's perhaps a lack of freshness in this sequel, despite such new tricks and a smattering of unfamiliar traps, but Badland 2 remains a visually stunning and relentlessly cruel arcade experience among the very best on Android.
Do, though, buy the IAP — the atmosphere and momentum is obliterated when ads appear. One of the most exhilarating games on mobile, Impossible Road finds a featureless white ball barreling along a ribbon-like track that twists and turns into the distance.
The aim is survival — and the more gates you pass through, the higher your score. The snag is that Impossible Road is fast , and the track bucks and turns like the unholy marriage of a furious unbroken stallion and a vicious roller-coaster.
You sit before a blank underground map of a major metropolis, and drag out lines between stations that periodically appear.
Little trains then cart passengers about, automatically routing them to their stop, their very movements building a pleasing plinky plonky generative soundtrack.
As your underground grows, though, so does the tension. Should a station become overcrowded, your entire network is closed.
Do well enough and you unlock new cities, with unique challenges. At that point, the row vanishes, and more building space scrolls into view. Much of the strategy lies in clever use of cards, which affect nearby squares — a factory reduces the value of nearby land, for example, but an observatory boosts the local area.
You quickly learn plonking down units without much thought messes up your future prospects. Instead, you must plan in a chess-like manner — even more so when facing off against the computer opponent in brutally difficult head-to-head modes.
There are varied mobile takes on limbless wonder Rayman's platform gaming exploits. The original exists on Android in largely faithful form, but feels ill-suited to touchscreens; and Rayman Adventures dabbles in freemium to the point it leaves a bad taste.
They rethink console-oriented platformers as auto-runners — which might sound reductive. However, this is more about distillation and focus than outright simplification.
Tight level design and an emphasis on timing regarding when to jump, rebound and attack forces you to learn layouts and the perfect moment to trigger actions, in order to get the in-game bling you need to progress.
Both titles are sublime, but Fiesta Run is marginally the better of the two - a clever take on platforming that fizzes with energy, looks fantastic, and feels like it was made for Android rather than a year-old console.
A decidedly dizzying take on platform games, Circa Infinity exists in a sparse world of concentric circles. Your little stick man scoots around the edge of the largest, and a prod of the action button when he's atop a pizza-slice cut-out flips him inside the disc.
Only the next disc may be patrolled by any number of critters intent on ejecting the stick man from their particular circle. The net result is an odd-looking, disorienting arcade title that proves fresh and exhilarating.
With 50 levels and five boss fights, making it to the end of Circa Infinity is a stern challenge; getting there quickly should test even the most hardened mobile gamer.
The Room is a series about mysteries within mysteries. It begins with a box. Fiddling with dials and switches causes things to spring to life elsewhere, and you soon find boxes within the boxes, layers unravelling before you; it's the videogame equivalent of Russian dolls meets carpentry, as breathed into life by a crazed inventor.
Movement remains restricted and on rails, but you're afforded a touch more freedom as you navigate your way through a strange clockwork world.
The Room Three is the most expansive of them all, featuring intricate, clever puzzles, as you attempt to free yourself from The Craftsman and his island of deranged traps and trials.
Get all three games, and play them through in order, preferably in a dark room when rain's pouring down outside for best effect. It's a terrifying and - ultimately - infuriating experience that will have you toying with the idea of having to go online for walkthroughs until you finally crack the mystery.
In Her Story , you find yourself facing a creaky computer terminal with software designed by a sadist. It soon becomes clear the so-called L.
But the tape's been hacked to bits and is accessible only by keywords; 'helpfully', the system only displays five search results at once.
Naturally, these contrivances exist to force you to play detective, eking out clues from video snippets to work out what to search for next, slowly piecing together the mystery in your brain.
A unique and captivating experience, Her Story will keep even the most remotely curious Android gamer gripped until the enigma is solved. You probably need to be a bit of a masochist to get the most out of Snakebird , which is one of the most brain-smashingly devious puzzlers we've ever set eyes on.
It doesn't really look or sound the part, frankly - all vibrant colors and strange cartoon 'snakebirds' that make odd noises.
But the claustrophobic floating islands the birds must crawl through, supporting each other often literally in their quest for fruit, are designed very precisely to make you think you've got a way forward, only to thwart you time and time again.
The result is a surprisingly arduous game, but one that's hugely rewarding when you crack a particularly tough level, at which point you'll probably rightly consider yourself some kind of gaming genius.
The difference is FOTONICA has you move through a surreal and delicate Rez-like 3D vector landscape, holding the screen to gain speed, and only soaring into the air when you lift a finger.
Smartly, FOTONICA offers eight very different and finite challenges, enabling you to learn their various multi-level pathways and seek out bonuses to ramp up your high scores.
Get to grips with this dreamlike runner and you can then pit your wits and thumbs against three slowly mutating endless zones. You might narrow your eyes at so-called 'realism' in mobile sports titles, given that this usually means 'a game that looks a bit like when you watch telly'.
But Touchgrind Skate 2 somehow manages to evoke the feel of skateboarding, your fingers becoming tiny legs that urge the board about the screen.
There's a lot going on in Touchgrind Skate 2, and the control system is responsive and intricate, enabling you to perform all manner of tricks. It's not the most immediate of titles - you really need to not only run through the tutorial but fully master and memorize each step before moving on.
Get to grips with your miniature skateboard and you'll find one of the most fluid and rewarding experiences on mobile. Note that for free you get one park to scoot about in, but others are available via IAP.
The bar's set so low in modern mobile gaming that the word 'premium' has become almost meaningless. But Leo's Fortune bucks the trend, and truly deserves the term.
It's a somewhat old-school side-on platform game, featuring a gruff furball hunting down the thief who stole his gold and then, as is always the way, dropped coins at precise, regular intervals along a lengthy, perilous pathway.
The game is visually stunning, from the protagonist's animation through to the lush, varied backdrops. The game also frequently shakes things up, varying its pace from Sonic-style loops to precise pixel-perfect leaps.
It at times perhaps pushes you a bit too far — late on, we found some sections a bit too finicky and demanding.
But you can have as many cracks at a section as you please, and if you master the entire thing, there's a hardcore speedrun mode that challenges you to complete the entire journey without dying.
You scoot about algorithmically generated single-screen mazes, gobbling down flowers, grabbing a key, and then making a break for the exit.
But what makes Forget-Me-Not essential is how alive its tiny dungeons feel. Your enemies don't just gun for you, but are also out to obliterate each other and, frequently, the walls of the dungeon, reshaping it as you play.
We're not sure why so many developers like platformers with a cat theme, but it seems to work so we won't judge. This one contains 84 unique levels, easy tap controls, leaderboards, and complete offline support.
You basically slingshot a cat from point to point while avoiding obstacles and death floors. You win a level when you reach the end. The game is free to play with some very cheap in-app purchases.
It's a decent arcade platformer and it's family friendly. There is enough content to last you a little while as well.
Marenian Tavern Story Price: Players open a tavern after Patty's family goes into massive debt. You train characters, dive into dungeons, and find new recipes for your business.
This is a freemium game. Frankly, you don't really need them and we recommend the free version of the game first.
Monster Hunter Stories Price: Monster Hunter Stories is one of the most unique mobile game releases we've seen. There is a bit of a prologue with MHST: The Adventure Begins linked at the button.
We really like that setup and we hope other developers copy it someday. In any case, this is a Monster Hunter game. You can fight monsters against other players online and play the story at your own pace.
This might be a candidate for game of the year. We do hope that Capcom improves their backup and restore function, though.
It's a simplified version of the console variant, but there are still some good things going on with this one. You can play actual basketball and the graphics are pretty decent.
You can play Story Mode and a My Career mode. It also has a modern and fun soundtrack. The game launched without in-game sounds and we thought that was funny.
Additionally, the controls can be a little clunky and it's weird seeing a sports game without an online component. Still, because developers don't take sports games seriously, this is probably going to be the best basketball game on mobile this year.
Game of Thrones Price: As far as games go, The Room series is as laid back as you can get, solving puzzles to get from one room to the next.
If even that is still too tense, then maybe the incomprehensible mutterings of Sims will be more to your taste.
This latest installment is as close to the full The Sims experience as you can get. Just littered with micro-transactions, of course.
If managing humans is not your thing, how about managing human-like animals? Pocket Camp is just as addictive as any other.
Especially for those with a fondness for cute anthropomorphic creatures and decorating rooms. Down in the dumps and desperately need a laugh?
