5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week! – Android Apps Weekly

AAW Sky Children of the Light
Welcome to the 313th edition of Android Apps Weekly! Here are the big headlines from the last week:


Disorder

Price: Free to play

Disorder is a free to play third person shooter from NetEase, developers of LifeAfter and Onmyoji. The game features excellent graphics, fun game play, and some decent customization options. Players are dropped into a dystopian future where everybody fights everybody with some sort of cool special abilities. It seems predominately online multiplayer so those who like solo games may want to skip this one. Otherwise, the game has a lot of potential is NetEase can keep it up, fix the issues, and continue to add more content.


Energy Ring (two apps)

Price: Free / $2.49 each

IJP is a developer on Google Play best known for its Energy Ring apps for the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 series of devices. The developers recently released two more apps. The first is for the S20 family of devices (link at the button below) while the second is for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, A51, and A71 devices. Both of these apps do exactly the same thing as the old ones. It lets you turn the punch hole camera cut out into a battery monitor. Each one has a variety of customizations including color, thickness, and more. We liked the idea last year and we still like the idea this year, although it’s weird to download and pay for a new app each time a new Galaxy phone comes out. Regardless, they all go for the same price for the premium version and they both work rather well.

Rocky Rampage: Wreck ’em Up

Price: Free to play

Rocky Rampage: Wreck ’em Up is an action-platformer with a fun, arcade style. You launch Mr. Boulder and try to hit as many things as you possibly can. It’s a simple premise not too different from titles like Angry Birds, except you destroy a lot more stuff. The hero has a variety of pants and upgrades to collect and there are even things like boss fights. There are some small issues with the game, notably some frame rate issues on some devices as well as some UI pain points. However, once fixed, this should be a good game to kill some time with.


Snap Search

Price: Free / $2.99 per month / $19.99 per year

Snap Search is a lightweight incognito browser and search app with some neat tricks up its sleeve. The app comes with a native ad blocker as well as a native VPN service. You can search for whatever you want and the app automatically deletes all of your cookies and history when you leave. Most of the app is entirely free with the only price coming for the VPN service. It’s a bit odd using such a lightweight tool for web browsing, but it worked as advertised.

Sky: Children of the Light

Price: Free to play

Sky: Children of Light finally launched on Android this week after a lengthy period in pre-registration. It’s a puzzle-adventure game at its heart but with elements of open world and MMO. Players explore seven distinctive worlds to return the constellations to the sky where they belong. There is also a social element to the game and you can send gifts to the other players. However, this game is all about its indie-style graphics that give everything big bursts of color and its laid back game play style. This is one of the good ones of 2020, no doubt about it.
