Android Games Roundup [2/20/18]

roundup-20180220-intro

Welcome to my first roundup of 2018! Sorry I’m a bit late to the party (does nearly two months count as fashionable?), but life has a funny way of not letting you do what you want to sometimes. Anyway, I’ve shifted gears a bit, because honestly I was getting tired of things just flat out not listing my iPad as a supported device or not NOT listing it but the game really not working on it anyway. Plus, I got a new-ish Android phone for Christmas, and it actually plays a lot of those games I just mentioned in the last sentence. So, my first collection of summaries is actually about Android games, though if there is an iOS version available I will provide a link for that as well. Just remember, I played all of these games on an Android phone, not on my iPad 2.

Also, I decided to do something else that I’ve not done with a roundup before, or at least not with roundups on this site. Instead of just listing games I liked (though that will still probably be the majority of what shows up), I’m actually going to mention games that I didn’t care for so much either. You should be able to tell the difference pretty readily, but just in case I’ll conclude each summary with a “Play” or “Pass” designation. And here’s a slight spoiler: Homescapes, Fastlane and Into The Dead 2 deserve a couple of extra “plays” added on to the end of my verdict. I play each of them almost every single day, which hasn’t happened for a long time even with the games that do still run on my iPad 2. So, without further ado, let’s actually get to the reviews…

To this day, Into The Dead is still one of the best zombie infinite runners on the App Store.  It had a “The Walking Dead” vibe to it, with plenty of atmosphere and visual panache to keep you perfectly on edge.  There were multiple game modes, lots of things to unlock and companions to ease some of your undead disposal burden.  While it’s just as entertaining now as when it was first released, PikPok has finally graced us with the one thing we’ve been missing – an actual sequel.  Later this week PikPok will be releasing Into The Dead 2, and the only thing stopping me from begging them for a pre-release copy is the fact that I don’t currently own a device capable of running the game.
