What are the latest games worth checking out in the Google Play Store?

Update August 18, 2017: Rearrange comic panels to solve a noir mystery in Framed 2, and then try to colonize Mars in Space Frontier — two games you absolutely need to check out this week!

There are thousands and thousands of games available in the Google Play Store, with more being added every month. With so much content hitting the app store, it can be damn near impossible to keep up with all the latest releases and determine which games are worth your time.

Here at Android Central, we want to help. We'll be using this space to let you know about the latest gaming releases for Android that we think deserve your attention. We'll be checking in and updating this page weekly as new games are released, so refresh often!

Framed 2

Get ready for more comic book stylized fun in Framed 2! This is a standalone prequel to groundbreaking mobile game Framed developed by Hideo Kojima back in 2014.

As the story unfolds, you control the action by rearranging the comic book panels to help your character make his way through each section. It's a totally unique way to play a game and is unlike anything else you've likely played on Android. It's got a cool noir look and feel to it, with an engaging story to keep you hooked.

The game is available at a 60% discounted price for launch and you can also pick up the first Framed game for next to nothing, too. Really worth your time if you're into unique puzzle games.

Space Frontier

Space Frontier is one of the latest games published by the prolific Ketchapp Games, and it could not be more timely with SpaceX testing rockets in preparation to start colonizing Mars.

In the game, you're tasked with developing a space program using multi-stage rockets with the goal of colonizing Mars. You start off just test launching rockets to get the hand of the mechanics involved — here, you tap to release each section of the rocket when it's in the green area. If your timing is off, you risk the entire rocket exploding! Each launch earns you coins which you can spend to upgrade your rocket, and once you've developed one big enough to reach Mars, its time to start sending citizens along to start a Mars colony — but that only raised the stakes even higher.

I know this is just a silly mobile game, but I honestly couldn't help but feel a little bad when my mistake ended up exploding a whole rocket full of people, as mournful music plays. On the flip-side, a successful launch feels really good, too. Once you've established a Mars colony, they start generating you money so you can continue to upgrade the rocket and landing capsule.

It doesn't take being a rocket scientist to enjoy this game, but it might make you feel like one after a little while.
