If you’re looking for a casual game with a soccer theme, then you’ll definitely enjoy Soccer Stars!
Soccer Stars or Android Soccer Match is a compendium of three free mobile games for Android. The first game, called the Soccer Game, reminds me of the famous Angry Bird game, which was so popular not so long ago. The gameplay in the Soccer Game is similar to the gameplay in Angry Birds. However, as this is a soccer-themed game, instead of shooting angry-looking birds at piglets in their collapsible homes, you get to shoot soccer balls (mounted on a big catapult) at the goalkeepers and world cup.

One of the RPG’s we’ve been missing is anything remotely like Diablo. You know the type. The hack and slash adventure with the unapologetic hero, tearing through crowds of enemies across multiple beautiful environments. This is something that we hadn’t seen on any mobile devices, and hey, let’s face it, we all need a little bit of hack and slash in our lives, right? Enter Taichi Panda.

Ever since the Kansas City Royals nearly lost the World Series due to a serious Clash of Clans addiction, there has been a universal attempt by developers to duplicate the success of the popular mobile game, but just as with Kentucky Fried Chicken, no one has yet managed to clone the original recipe.

Badland may seem like your typical side-scroller Android app, but it most certainly can entertain various tastes.
Though Badland requires quite a bit of storage space and might not be suitable for all devices, the app definitely is worth checking out.
The winner of the Best Project Award at the Game Connection Europe and the largely voted Game of the Year for 2013 is visually and intellectually pleasing for players of all ages. It is, however, not recommended for strategy gamers and everyone who lacks the patience to reach the more thought-provoking upper levels.
