It’s the last weekend of the month, and May is over, which means it’s time to take a look at the past four weeks or so and consider what games were released during that time that were the best. Because knowing something is the best is very important for a reason.
It’s been a good month for Android gaming, especially if you love shooting, punching and then more shooting. However, there are a number of great puzzle games on the list as well, and a classic style tap and click adventure.
You can click on the game names below to download them from the Play Store, unless otherwise noted they are premium games. If you’ve got your own favorite from May and it’s not mentioned, let us know in the comments section.
A great port of one of the best Battle Royale games ever. It works surprisingly well on mobile, and can capture all the excitement and spills without sacrificing much. They look great, they are full of fun and there is always something to do. It’s free with in-app purchase.
Another shooter this time from the developer behind Vainglory. It’s a reasonably meaty experience, and while the scraps might not last long, you’ll probably jump on another ride right away. It looks good, there’s depth to it and shooting things is always fun, right? It’s free with in-app purchase.
A great mix of Minecraft style smashing and building style and Dragon Quest monster mashing. It is a huge game and you can team up with your friends to explore more. It’s clickable, mobile-configured and works brilliantly on the touchscreen.
It took a while to get here, but Sokobond has finally landed on Android. It’s a puzzle from the developer behind A Good Snowman is Hard to Build, and it’s all about mixing particles together. There is strong logic that pushes the puzzle forward and you will feel like a genius when you solve some of the more complex challenges.
The third shooter on this month’s list is a roguelite FPS with a co-op game all about making your way through hordes of enemies. Each time you play it will be different, with many new gear and weapons to equip. There are different characters to play our part, they look great, and the action is breathtaking at times.
Crawler burrow hack and slash dungeon with some roguelite tendencies. You play as a skeleton who can detach his head and throw it at enemies to cause massive damage. It’s got some neat violence, and there’s hours upon hours of replay as well.
A great puzzle game from Zach Gage and Jack Schlesinger. It mixes ideas from a bunch of newspaper games and creates a special kind of crossword puzzle that you will fall in love with. There are daily puzzles and a lot of challenges waiting for you. There is a lot of free stuff, but there is a subscription plan or one-time in-app purchase to get more.
Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes in the drugstores you enter in fantasy RPGs? Well, this game answers that question. You run a potion shop and brew a variety of tinctures and poisons to sell them. It’s a neat mix of management and RPG and once you start it’s hard to get rid of.
A welcome return to the classic Beat-’em-up series The kick-punching is smooth and polished, the game looks beautiful and there are plenty of different modes in which you can violently get your way. Multiplayer is on its way to you, but even without it this player is pretty cool.
Kind of a love letter to the legendary age of point-and-click adventures. If you love the likes of Monkey Island, you are sure to love this island. You investigate strange happenings in the island community, explore cool hand-drawn backgrounds and meet interesting characters.
