Today we’ve created a new article that contains some of the best Android video games that have been launched in the last week. Check the list and you might find your next favorite title.
All games are listed randomly, so you will be able to test them without thinking that ‘this game hast to be good because I saw it ranked #1 on a bogus website’ and instead you will read our reviews and then think which game you should play. Every game that is in this post is available from Google Play Store for free while some of them will require you to pay a small fee in order to install them.
Also, some of the games listed below are featuring in-app purchases that will allow you to progress quickly through levels and missions easier than you would normally do. The in-app purchasing system is not a favorite feature of mine, but that keeps the game developers engaged in creating new and better titles.

Warhammer 40,000 is a known title among PC gamers and now it has made it way to Google Play Store as Warhammer40k Storm of Vengeance.
