Exodus (Free on iOS, Android) – This endless survival game from Ketchapp and Tooflya challenges players to tap when a flying rocket is on top of a green dot. The game will end if players tap too early or too late, or if they tap when the rocket is over a red dot. Gamers can also tap when the rocket is on top of a coin to collect it. Coins can be used to unlock new characters. Gamers can also complete missions to earn extra coins, and they can unlock new gameplay environments as they complete missions in bulk. Missions may ask players to earn a specific number of points, play a required number of games, and so on.

The puzzle game challenges players to fold, expand and rotate colored blocks until only one block of each color is left. The game reportedly offers twice as many puzzles as the original Fold, as well as “new gameplay mechanics.”

Heavy Rockets ($1.99 on iOS) – This shooter from Majasalmi includes two gameplay modes: race and battle. In the race mode, players are challenged to fly their spaceship around tracks as quickly as they can. Users can race against their own ghost on a track, or a friend’s ghost. Users can also complete quick races, and they will unlock new tracks as they beat specific lap times on previous tracks. Meanwhile, in the battle mode, players fly their spaceship around environments and tap a button to fire their weapon at enemies. Gamers have a limited supply of fuel and ammunition, and they can recharge both by landing on platforms in the environment. Gamers can battle against other players in real-time on the same Wi-Fi network, or battle against computer-controlled enemies in single-player games.

Jumping Kitty

Jumping Kitty (Free on iOS) – From ZPlay, this endless survival game challenges players to tap at the right time to send a cat between platforms at the top and bottom of the screen. The platforms move left and right automatically, so players must tap when the cat is above or below another platform to land safely and not leave the screen. If players wait too long to tap, the cat hits the side of the screen and the game will end. Gamers can collect coins as they play, and spend these on new playable characters. Users will also receive free coins as prizes over time, and they can earn additional coins by watching video ads.

While playing, gamers can shoot crates to receive bonuses which may heal Dan’s health, slow down time and more.

Soda World (Free on iOS) – From SoulGame Entertainment, Soda World allows players to create their own soda company and earn money by selling soda to customers. Players can fill soda bottles by tapping and holding on a button in the corner of the screen, and these bottles are automatically delivered to soda machines once per in-game day. As players earn coins from selling soda, they can upgrade their business, increasing the number of soda bottles their machines can hold or the number of bottles they produce with each press of the button. Gamers can also fulfill their customers’ wishes by constructing buildings in town or purchasing new soda flavors. Players can unlock additional markets over time, with each market having new buildings to construct and wishes to fulfill.

In addition to these new games, Natsume has released Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories on Android for $9.99. The game was previously released on iOS.
