With Christmas and the end of the year coming to a close, December has had some great new releases as well as some great games just coming to Android. This ranges from chart topping triple A titles like Grand Theft Auto to more indie titles like Badland and AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA. December was certainly a month full of big and bold titles from the best of the best developers. What to see exactly what made our top of December? Read on.
Angry Birds Go! may be full of sponsored ads and IAPs but at its core it is an extremely well done kart racer. - Robert Clark
The month of December brought to us Rovio's latest venture with the Angry Birds franchise. The highly anticipated game is called Angry Birds Go! and instead of a launcher destruction game it ventured into Mario Karts territory and made a downhill kart racing game. Angry Birds Go! gameplay wise is amazing with super cartoony and colorful graphics and great controls. However, it is full of IAPs and other forced ads with kind of tarnish the whole experience.
Holiday Gift brings the familiar charm of Cut the Rope with a holiday skin. - Michael Ian
Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift is perhaps the only game on this list that was made exclusively for the month of December. As you can probably guess, gameplay of this Zeptolab game is similar to all the other Cut the Rope games but with that Christmas/Holiday theme. So you'll be cutting rope and gathering candy with landscapes ranging from Christmas trees in the background to snow. While it is essentially the same game as all the others, you can't complain too much as that gameplay is super addicting.
Like the name suggests, in Savant - Ascent you are ascended a tower and shooting all the robots that get in your way. If you're savvy in the ways of EDM music you may recognize that Savant - Ascent is a commissioned game by the artist Savant. But don't let that fool you as Savant - Ascent is a fun shooter game that any fan will love. In addition to the gameplay, the music is top notch (obviously) and a joy to play.
Don't let the name of AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA turn you off of the actual content as it is actually a really fun game. The name comes from the typical scream response of someone jumping off buildings and that is what the gameplay is about. Jump off skyscrapers and dodge obstacles along the way down. Originally a PC title, it is now on Android and fits snugly with the motion controls.
Destroying the world has never been as much fun as when you've guided a giant robot snake. - David Oxford
If you're in the mood for some pure destruction, you may want to give Colassatron a try. It plays like any Snake type game but with a surprising amount of unique features. Your chain of destruction is comprised of many different colored parts which can combine to give super bonuses and the levels are full of military units trying to take you down. All in all, Colossatron is full of pure chaotic action and is super fun.
While Grand Theft Auto V recently came out, for Android fans there was another title to be excited about. That is right, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas finally made its way to Android. Rockstar redesigned Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for mobile devices by revamping graphics and customizing the controls. If you want a great game full of nostalgia or just a great game in general for your Android device, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is it.
