Secret of Mana

Secret of Mana Android

There’s nothing that brings back feelings of nostalgia like firing up a good old-fashioned Super Nintendo game. After launching for iOS back in 2010, Square Enix was kind enough to finally bring the 1993 classic Secret of Mana to Android devices. Featuring a Zelda-like top-down view and real-time battle system, Secret of Mana was a breath of fresh air from Square Enix’s typical turn-based RPGs.

  4. “The world-famous Football Management game just received a major upgrade” – as the capitalisation suggests, you’re thinking of Football Manager. This was called Championship Manager but about 10 years ago legal issues meant that they lost the name and Championship Manager has been little more than a cash-in since then.

  5. SimCity BuildIt should be on this list.

  6. We have a new reaction puzzle game out at Google Play. It’s influenced by the Material Design and we think you would really enjoy playing it :) Please leave feedback! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=quick.quickestto25
