Anachron’s Top 5 Casual Game Awards for Android

One of the virtues of being a game developer is that it gives you a lot of excuses to try new games. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad, but sometimes it’s really good! These are my top five casual games I have played so far on Android:

1. Paperama by FDG Entertainmentrainbow_medal_128

Could it be, an amazing game that is both entertaining as well as educational? It is. Paperama is one of those incredibly rare gems of games that feels like it is teaching you something clever while playing it. Impress your friends with your mad newly-found paper-folding skills. Do it now!!!

2. Smash Hit by Mediocre

Smash Hit indeed. Mediocre proves again the irony of their name, and that they are really masters of crafting compelling casual Android gaming experiences. A must play audio-visual extravaganza with the most satisfying flying metal ball/glass-shattering interface so far devised.

3. Bouncy Ball 2.5D by Raon Games

There are a lot of poor ball games on the market, but Bouncy Ball 2.5D flies miles above the rest with its clever and unique perspective-switching gameplay mechanism, a huge amount of levels, and extremely intuitive tap controls. Simple colourful graphics disguise a deep, rewarding, and completely free game that combines puzzle and actions elements in a fun formula for all ages.

4. Boson X by Ian Maclarty

Like an unofficial tribute to Terry Cavanagh’s super Hexagon, Boson X combines a simple and intuitive control mechansim with fast-paced running and jumping action on a quantum scale. Crisp fresh low-poly graphics and excellent music and sound effects complete the package. Highly recommended.

5. Color Zen by Large Animal Games

Bright, bold, and beautiful describes Color Zen, an artistic puzzler with a simple color-matching mechanic that tasks players with choosing different colored shapes in the correct order to eliminate all graphics in a level. Level packs with different themes, like Seasons and Serenity, are available at a small cost, but there are many levels that players can play free.

Honorouble Mentions:

Astra Slash by Medha Edutainment

Satisfyingly slashy, Astra Slash is an even lighter experience than similar games like Fruit Ninja yet somehow more compelling with just a single Heyzap leaderboard. Super simple yet fiendishly difficult gameplay and a unique narrative provide all the necessary ingredients for a quick engaging session.

Crazy Wizard by Opal Gameplay

Avoid the terrifying monsters, escape to the exit, and collect the bonus if you can in this action-evade thrill-ride. Although there is an annoying delay unless you make a small in-app purchase, and making the purchase can result in a game the constantly crashes, there are still many levels that players can enjoy risk-free. Undeniably great casual game, with an unfortunate hiccup in monetization.
