3 Cool New Android Games

I guess you’ve already played the most famous Android games like Angry Birds or Fruit Ninja… If you really have, you’d probably want to learn about some new games you can play on your Android device. They’re not as popular as those mentioned above, but they’re very interesting and addictive.
Say hello to these new games that were released not long ago!
1. World of Goo
World of Goo is a rather famous PC game, and not so long ago its first chapter has come to Android, too. Your mission in this game is to create structures with the help of balls of goo. Sounds easy and silly, but… for some strange reason, when you start playing this game, you can’t stop until your battery dies.
The game is not only challenging and addictive, it has rather good graphics, too, and will look really good on phones with big high-resolution screens (like the new iPhone 4S or the latest Samsung mobile phones). The game has both paid ($4.99) and free versions, so hurry to get one of them if you like it.
2. Where’s My Water?
Swampy the alligator is a nice and funny creature that loves cleanness and wants to take a bath, but he has a little problem – there is no water… Your goal in this really addictive physics-based puzzle game is to guide water to Swampy’s bathroom. Seems to be an easy task at the first sight, but the game is actually rather challenging, since there are also acidic fluid and wine that will spread if water touches them, and I guess acidic bath isn’t what Swampy’s dreaming about.
“Where’s My Water?” designed by Disney costs $0.99 at Android Market, but there is a free trial version, too. By the way, the game is also available for Apple devices.
MineCraft has been one of the most famous PC games for a long time, and now it is available on Android phones, too. In this game you can build anything you want using cubes designed in 8-bit style.
In my opinion, the graphics of the game aren’t that beautiful (maybe because I’m used to those beautiful 3D games), but that’s what we should have expected from an 8-bit styled games. Anyway, the graphics don’t change anything – the game is still very interesting and very addictive. The game will run on any Android phone, but it’s optimized especially for Sony Ericsson mobile phones, namely the Xperia Play, so if you’re an owner of this device, consider yourself a lucky one!
You can download the free trial version of the game from Android Market (it has some restrictions compared to the original version, however), and the paid version is also sold there for $6.56 – a bit expensive, but after playing the trial version you’ll see it’s worth it.
