Knock-Knock, the paranormal horror survival game from Ice-pick Lodge gives you the chance to take on the dare. You must spend one night in a lonesome inn in the woods where things come a-knocking at your door. You must go from one room to another avoiding the spooks and fixing their entry points before the night is through.


If you are a big fan of JRPG’s, you’ll be happy to learn that Square Enix has landed the incredibly popular PS2 title Dragon Quest VIII on Android. You go on a grand adventure when a magician revives an ancient scepter that contains a fearsome power and puts the entire kingdom into a cursed slumber. The game comes with a heavy price tag, but if you’re a faithful fan of exploration and monster slaying – JRPG style, you should go for this one.

3. Stickman Soccer 2014

Football fever is spreading around the world and a good game to get you into the spirit of the occasion is Stickman Soccer 2014.

The game comes with plenty of new game modes and game mechanics and with 4 difficulty settings to choose from, so you’ll have plenty of ways to keep yourself entertained.

2. Timberman

This is a straightforward game that’s easy to play but impossibly hard to master. You are a timber-man who must chop down trees without bringing down any branches. The faster you chop the more points you score, but a ticking timer and progressively faster speeds will keep you on the edge. This one’s a great game to play in short bursts so take it for a spin if you’re looking for a casual time killer.

1. Worms 3

It is incredibly hard to create a popular Android game let alone a winning sequel. Team 17 Digital Limited have managed to create not one but two great installments of the Worms series. Worms 3 comes with a new gaming element: cards that can turn a losing streak into a winning one. The game’s rich 2D backgrounds, smashing visual effects, new class system, and asynchronous multiplayer system makes it one of the most entertaining games of the month. You just gotta play this one!
