5 Android Games You Shouldn’t Miss This December


Throw.io is an MMO action game with plenty of arcade fun. You and a bunch of random players drop into a battlefield and start throwing stuff at one another. You can throw axes, knives, daggers, and about three dozen other implements of destruction. The controls are uninspiring, but competent. You shouldn't have much trouble throwing stuff at other players. Some other game features include multiple playable characters, weapon buffs, a ranking system, and colorful graphics. It won't blow your mind, but it's definitely fun to play. 


2-Xbox Game Pass Beta

Microsoft launched Xbox Game Pass on Google Play a couple of months ago. This is the beta version of the app. It has most of the same features as the stable version. However, users can test out new features before the regular folks do. At the moment, there isn't really much to experience in the beta version over the stable version. This is the platform that new features get tested on, though. Huge fans of the service may find some good stuff here over time. Of course, those who don't use Game Pass should probably just skip this one. It's only really useful for subscribers or people who might subscribe eventually.

3-This Is The Police

This Is The Police is a strategy-adventure game about a corrupt cop. Jack Boyd is six months away from retirement and wants a nice nest egg to retire with. Players help him reach his lofty $500,000 goal by doing a bunch of random stuff. You manage emergency responses, individual cops, and other aspects of the job. You can do some not so great things as well if you want to. The game leans heavily on its strategy and simulation elements and that's how players engage the most with the game. It's surprisingly good, though. The game goes for $7.99 with no in-app purchases or advertisements. That's cheaper than its PC or console versions.

4-Fluid Navigation Gestures

Fluid Navigation Gestures actually came out a couple of months ago. We missed it and that's our bad so let's cover it this week. This is a gesture control app and it adds gesture controls to almost any smartphone. You can set almost any type of snap, tap, or hold to one of over a dozen different actions. Some examples include the standard back, home, and recent apps options along with opening the notifications or power menu and several others. It competes very favorably with XDA's Navigation Gestures app. You can even hide the navigation bar on the bottom if you don't mind using a PC with ADB. It's an excellent customization app on Android.

5-Brawl Stars

Brawl Stars is the latest game from Supercell, developers of Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, and Boom Beach. It was out in beta in several countries before this week. However, this week marked its official release. It's a PvP brawler with a variety of game types. That includes several three vs three game types along with a one vs one and two vs two game type. Players can collect gems, play a ball game, steal the other team's loot, and more. The one vs one and two vs two mode is a classic battle royale style where players go at each other until only one player is left standing. It's new and it still needs some optimization. However, Supercell did an excellent job with this one. It fits in with a lot of game types.
