8 Indie Android Games You Should Be Playing In 2015
Perhaps it’s the rhyme of “Ape” and “Eight,” or the symmetry of the numerical value 8, but whatever it is, we at App Apes have an affinity for 8, so here are eight great apps submitted to us in the new year of 2015 (a few in late December 2014) that you should be playing. Click on the name of the app to read our review, or on the app store link to get directly into downloading. Let’s support our fellow developers, if for no other reason than that someday they might be in a position to help us in a comparable situation. Or, you know, just to have a little fun.
1. Sol Invictus
YOU control the story as the grand saga of Cromulus and his war continues. For three years the soldiers of the Black Lance Legion have watched as the Invaders turned their solar system into a hellish, desolate wasteland. Humanity’s most advanced fighting force lurked in the shadows, doing little while their species was forced to choose between eternal enslavement… or extinction. The wait ends when Admiral Franks, the legendary Storm Lord at the head of the Legion, announces a system-wide uprising against humanity’s oppressors. Cromulus and his team of human fanatics find themselves on the front lines, doing whatever it takes to crush the will of the Invaders. In Sol Invictus, Cromulus finds out that not all humans are willing to take the kinds of risks that he takes. And while he has less than zero tolerance for pacifism, what the Legion does with its softer recruits may be too much even for him… The second part of Kyle B. Stiff’s legendary adventure gamebook series has been brought to life as never before in this official Sol Invictus game. Get ready for the ride of your life as you become the hero of your very own story.

Rock, Paper, Wizards! puts the magic back in the classic game of rock, paper, scissors, and provides an endless adventure. In Rock, Paper, Wizards! players follow Oscar Burlin, a loving father and magician who lives modestly and literally pulls rabbits out of a hat to make ends meet. At his daughter’s birthday party he provides the entertainment to save a buck, rather than hiring another entertainer. Unfortunately, he is shamed and humiliated when his daughter and her friends claim he is not magician at all and is rather a hack who relies on cheap parlor tricks and a beautiful mustache to “entertain.” Echoing in his head are his daughter’s words, “Mom, can we get a real magician?” Oscar is truly haunted by his spoiled daughter’s words, but rather than turn to bad habits, he decides to cope another way–by proving himself. In an effort to regain his daughter’s esteem, and prove to himself he’s a true wielder of magic, Oscar enters a contest of magic, the main event for the annual magical carnival: Magicians, the Gathering. Using his power of split second foresight, Oscar plans to win the Rock, Paper, Scissor’s magic contest. With his trusty magician’s wand, lucky leprechaun shoes, and cape of compromise, Oscar joins the ranks of wizards, witches, and magical creatures all struggling for the title of best magic wielder in the world. How far up the ranks can he climb? The number of contestants seems endless, and seeing as it’s a magical contest, it could truly be never-ending, but Oscar will stop at nothing to be the best and make his embarrassing failure at his daughter’s birthday party all but disappear.
