Top3 Android App released last week
With the nights getting longer, and the temperatures dropping, it can only mean that Fall is finally here. October has seen the launch of hundreds of new apps to download on Android. Here are the Top3 Android App released last week.
Star Command, By Star Command, LLC, $2.99
Over two years in the making, Star Command has been one of the most eagerly-anticipated games for Android devices. Released on iOS over five months ago, the wait for Star Command on Android has frustrated many users, with the game’s lengthy long development cycle. Players start off as a eager new captain in the game, wandering down the empty corridors of the Star Command. The aim is to construct the infrastructure for the shop, hire staff, and decorate rooms, bearing similarities to both the Sims and Star Wars. Even though the game is short, it does offer a lot to those who are interested in science and engineering. Players are given a short training session at the beginning of the game before being assigned tasks such as building rooms, or fixing the mechanics of the large ship. The micromanagement style of Star Command resembled Game Dev Story, developed by Kairosoft, where players have to build and maintain urban spaces. At only $2.99, the game has no advertisements or additional in-app purchases and is a vibrant and exciting new game for all ages.
