PES2017: Pro Evolution Soccer

Most people know FIFA as the king of video game soccer, but in the mobile space, Konami's version of the beautiful game has just made a huge splash.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 (also known as Winning Eleven in Japan) has landed on Android and offers the purest soccer experience you'll find on Mobile. Unlike FIFA Mobile Soccer, which offers really limited gameplay that's hamstrung by EA's "Ultimate Team" mechanic and "VS Attack" multiplayer, PES2017 offers a much more open gameplay experience with the option of building out your own team and playing a full campaign against the best teams in Europe, South America, and Asia. You're also able to play live PvP matches against online opponents or challenge your friends to a local match.

PES2017 really shines on the pitch, with traditional touch button controls or Konami's new swipe controls to choose from. The animations are great as players realistically battle for the ball, and you're able to trigger a goal celebration every time you score. There's plenty of fun to be had here, which is only limited by your "energy level", which you spend to play matches, and it refills over time.

There's also a slew of events to play to earn in-game currency — yes, there's a freemium model at play here to keep the game free, but it's much less restrictive here than with FIFA.

Zombie Gunship Survival

Zombie Gunship Survival is the long-awaited sequel to the first game that let you destroy wave after wave of the living undead from the relative safety of a high-powered gunship.

This game plays out after a zombie apocalypse has taken over the world as you help to secure an airfield shelter with your small team of survivors. You must provide support for your ground troops as they embark on missions to find news supplies, unleashing a hellfire of bullets and rockets at zombies.

The same stylized visuals are here from the original, with the shelter-building mechanic adding to its replayability. As you play, you'll unlock a fearsome collection of weapons to aid you in your survival. Do you have what it takes to survive the zombie apocalypse?

Shadow Warrior Classic Redux

If you're old enough to remember the days of gaming on MS-DOS, you might remember Shadow Warrior. First released 20 years ago by 3D Realms, the game follows the exploits of modern ninja warrior Lo Wang as he fights against hordes of demonic enemies in search of a mythical sword.

The game plays similar to Duke Nukem 3D — complete with a quick-witted protagonist and plenty of gratuitous violence. With Shadow Warrior Classic Redux, you get a remastered version of the classic game that features two episodes from the original game along with two expansion packs: Wanton Destruction and Twin Dragon. The game features customizable touch controls along with game controller support and is a nice blast from the past for old-school gamers.

You can snag this classic FPS for the sale price of just $0.99 in celebration of its launch on Android.
