This week, the long awaited sequel to Tank Hero seems to have come out of nowhere to the delight of many Android users. A free expansion to the explosive puzzle game Demolition Master 3D was also released, featuring a colorful and fun holiday theme. An old iOS series got its first Android port (3D Rollercoaster Rush New York), and the latest game from a specialized iOS cloner was also released, though I’m not sure if Skater Boy is even really a clone! All of this and more can be found in this week’s top Android games.
Demyansk Pocket (Conflicts) ($2.99)
This is definitely a very interesting game. It’s a hexagonal-tiled turn-based strategy game based on a specific 1942 conflict during World War II. Your goal is to re-establish a connection between two cities, Staraya Russa and Demyansk, and then maintain that connection for seven straight turns. This is the latest in a whole series of WWII based “Conflicts” games from the developer, and while the games aren’t very popular and they are definitely in need of some polish, it might be an interesting series to look into if you’re a strategy games fan or a history buff.
