Golf on Mars is really good and relaxing. Really simple and well made.

Aaaaand this is from the New Star folks. They make quality mobile titles.

How does it play if you don't know anything about hockey?

Retro Bowl has destroyed my thumb.

I really like it.

For my money, Crashlands is the best actual game on Android.

Anyone else tried Evil Hunter Tycoon? You essentially run a town that the adventurers use as their base. I'm liking it.

Sounds interesting. How bad are the micro transactions?

So far it hasn't been an issue, but I'm only a few days in. It's got the multiple monies problem, so I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being an issue.

The gameplay is pretty straightforward and simplified. The front office stuff is a little complicated for someone who knows nothing about football (me), but I am getting the hang of it. I think. It's pretty.

Not sure if this is old news, but Google Play Pass just launched in Australia and I thought I'd take advantage of the free month.

It's...Not amazing. There's a lot of chaff to sort through. In contrast to Apple Arcade's curated selection, it looks like almost anything is able to make its way onto this service. I've downloaded a small handful of games to try out, but nothing amazing.

Though I am enjoying Holedown, which is very similar to BALLS

I love Terraria, but the controls on a mobile device are frustrating.

I've been playing Crying Suns a bit. for $9 US it's a pretty good deal. i actually like it more then i liked FTL. the world is kinda neat, Dune meets Foundation and the art is nice. gamepaly is pretty solid, combat is mostly RPS style real time with pause but it's got some neat options and the story it's revealing slowly is cool. don't know if it's got "play for monthes" level legs but i certainly am enjoying my time with it.

Yeah I had it on Steam list for a while but saw the mobile release last month and tempting to get it there for a lot cheaper. Looks to be the same full game.

it is, same game, touch controls are solid.

Oh wow, Crying Sun's had a mobile release?

I discussed it in the Steam summer sale thread, or maybe in the space games thread during the Steam sale. Because the mobile was still half the price of the Steam version on sale. But couldn't find anyone that had tried mobile yet.

The Putty author also has a pretty good single player puzzle game collection, already ported to smart phones.

I did have a small fanboy moment when I discovered Simon worked in the same office as me. I was using putty as a 16 year old to connect to Muds, happy to report he’s a nice guy in person. Asks good questions in all-hands.
