Android Games Roundup [8/30/20]

roundup-20200830-intro

So I would love to blame the gap between roundups on this nasty little pandemic that’s been circling the globe (if you’re reading this after the fact, assuming there is an after the fact, Google the time frame to see what I’m talking about), but thankfully it hasn’t impacted me for the most part. I just don’t seem to get around to spending much time on my phone these days. In fact, I’m pretty sure I started this one pretty much right after I finished the last one, because it has been months since I played the first game on the list. Oh, and there’s also the fact that I spent some time transitioning between phones, which meant either starting games over completely or figuring out how to get the save games to transfer between devices.

I was amazed at how many games still don’t provide a decent way to start a game on one device and continue it on another. I don’t even care if it’s cross-OS, but it should at least be easily doable for the end user between devices on the same app store. There’s my quick soapbox for the day.
