On Friday, we had our lengthiest Android Rundown Live stream yet on Twitch, playing 5 different Android games both new and of recent vintage. Missed the show? Click here to watch the whole thing live.
As well, here are the individual games played on the show:
TowerMadness 2: Limbic surprisingly unleashed a followup to their tower defense game, which saw release very recently on Android. I go through the early stages of the game, discussing how games with in-app currencies can be defined by how much the game is willing to give them out.
Deus Ex: The Fall: After a failure to launch on Thursday’s stream (click here to watch Thursday’s stream), a switch from ART to Dalvik runtimes allowed the game to actually run. The setup to the story and how to play the game are shown and discussed. We’ll likely return to this one this week on the streams…
Bit Dungeon: This roguelike plays like a cross between The Legend of Zelda and The Binding of Isaac, but with touch controls. After a run on Thursday, Friday I take another go at it – and learn how the touch controls actually work.
Delver: The roguelike fun continues with this first-person dungeon crawler, where I go from being a fumbling mess to a reasonably-competent crawler of dungeons…but a stunning twist may ruin the fun.
Super Crossfire HD: We close things out with a run through the extra-difficult Dark Mode in this side-swapping shoot ’em up.
