10 best NEW Android games from October 2020

Android gaming is getting bigger and better every month it seems and there is always a slew of new titles coming to Google Play. Most of them are free and some cost a few bucks, but all of them will keep you entertained at home or when you’re out and about.

Whether you’re a casual gamer or you want something with a bit more meat on its bones, there’s usually a game coming out to suit everyone’s taste. Some months are better than others, but there is usually at least one great new game on mobile every month. Let’s take a look at the best new Android games that are currently available.

The Game of Life 2

( Android, iPhone, iPad )

The Game of Life 2 is a mobile game sequel to the classic board game. This version of the game features upgraded and modernized options from the original along with some extra game play elements. The various permutations result in thousands of potential outcomes. Some of the game’s other features include online multiplayer, a single player mode, and a pass-and-play local multiplayer mode. The game runs for $3.99 with no advertising. You can sign up for the optional season pass, but it’s entirely optional. Once you buy the game, you have the game.


One-Punch Man:Road to Hero 2.0

( Android, iPhone, iPad )

One-Punch Man: Road to Hero 2.0 is an idle style card collecting game with some mobile RPG elements. The game features a variety of game modes, including a story mode, online PvP, an Extreme Trial mode, and a few neat extra mini-games. However, the basic premise is classic gacha. You collect heroes via cards and upgrade them to be more powerful. Admittedly, this one is a bit slower than most for free players and the energy system is a little bit restrictive. Still, the game is otherwise quite fun and we hope the developers balance out those other elements in future updates. 



Tales of Crestoria

( Android, iPhone, iPad )

Tales of Crestoria is another new gacha, but this one with a Tales theme. It features a new story about two friends who embark on an adventure in a world that doesn’t want them around. The story and its characters are unique, but like all gachas, there are cameos from existing Tales characters. The game is also free player friendly (relatively, anyway) and has the classic Tales game story of morality along with the familiar animations and music. The game received some flack due to it launching in Google Play before the game actually launched on the servers, but those problems are gone now.



Trivia Royale™

( Android, iPhone, iPad )

Trivia Royale is a mix between a trivia game and a battle royale. You and a bunch of other players square off to see who can last the longest in a round of trivia. The game honestly plays a little bit like HQ Trivia minus the live performances and real cash winnings. You and about 1,000 other players line up and answer questions to see who makes it to the end. The game has some bugs and most of them are network issues. That’s kind of to be expected with a 1,000 players all in the same spot. Hopefully those subside in future updates because this is a fun little idea for trivial fans.


Pokemon Cafe Mix

( Android, iPhone, iPad )

What’s cuter than a Pokemon? A cafe that exclusively serves Pokemon, that’s what. Pokemon Cafe Mix is a fun little puzzle game that tasks you with preparing dishes and drinks for a variety of Pokemon customers. Create good enough treats and you’ll win yourself new friends and be able to expand your business to allow in even more Pokemon. It’s free to start but has in-app purchases available.


Penguin Isle

( Android, iPhone, iPad )

Idle games are a great way to keep your fingers busy while you watch TV, and penguins are great in any setting. Combine the two and you get Penguin Isle, an idle game where you create a habitat for a variety of different penguins. The aim of the game is to relax, so crank up the volume and listen to the soothing music, watch the cute animations, and enjoy the relaxing scenery. While not one for someone seeking action, Penguin Isle is a great game for relaxation.


Tiny Room Stories

( Android )

There’s nothing like a good mystery to really snag your attention and keep you buried, and Tiny Room Stories: Town Mystery certainly qualifies as a good mystery. You play as a detective who returns to his father’s town, only to find it completely deserted. It’s your job to find out what happened, using all your detective skills to explore fully interactive 3D levels crammed with fun puzzles and clues. Essentially a mix of escape rooms and quests, this is the game to scratch any mysterious itch.


Game Dev Tycoon

( Android, iPhone, iPad )

A game where you create games sounds very meta, but don’t let that put you off. Game Dev Tycoon, as you might expect, puts you in the shoes of a lowly ’80s game developer, coding in their garage. Make a hit game, and you’ll be able to move into an office, hire artists and developers to help out, and make bigger and better games as the industry matures. It’s a simple idea, but an engaging one, and you’ll quickly be enraptured by reports on how well your last games did, and how your next hit can appeal to even more people. While $5 seems like a lot, this is a game that you can sink a lot of hours into.
