Optimized for the NVIDIA SHIELD, Ultimate Chicken Horse is a great party game. You and your friends build the level as you play, placing deadly traps before trying to reach the end of the level. Earn a point by completing the level before your friends.


This is another game that looks a lot like Monument Valley, but it has a unique twist. In order to win each level, you just need to ring the bells in the correct order. It’s not as easy as simply finding the end point.

Assassin’s Creed Identity


This is the first action RPG game in the Assassin’s Creed series. Explore the Italian renaissance through the eyes of your own assassin, complete dozens of missions and unravel the epic mystery of The Crows.


Prune is best described as a “love letter to trees.” With a swipe of a finger, grow and shape your tree into the sunlight while avoiding the dangers of a hostile world. While you’re growing trees you’ll uncover a deeper story.

Crashing Season

Crashing Season is an action-packed runner game with a physics-based 3D world. Your mission is to survive and beat waves of enemies, fight mean bosses, and complete goals.

Vector 2


Vector 2 features intense gameplay in a dystopian world. Your job is to work your way through a huge and complex research facility and try to get out alive. When you’re done you have to do it again.



Gangfort is an action team-based shooter and 2D platformer game. It features the cool retro 8-bit pixel art style that we love.  Run, jump, shoot and do whatever it takes to help your team win a round.

Steve the jumping dinosaur

Steve is the tiny jumping dinosaur who you might recognize from Chrome. This game allows you to play with Steve, jumping over cacti, anywhere on your phone in a floating widget.


Mekorama is easiest described as a mix between Monument Valley and Minecraft. It has the 3D puzzles of Monument Valley, but with the design and creation tools of Minecraft.


Like Sudoku, Nadoku has a grid and numbers, but that is where the similarities end. The idea of the game is to match the number of dots in a column to the number at the top.

A Skyrocket Story is a game that features hand-drawn artwork, and it happens to be a lot of fun, too. The game revolves around a skyrocket. The goal is to land the rocket safely at the end of every level.

Tiny Tower
