Quality Index: The week's best Android games - Drag Racing: Bike Edition, Battleloot Adventure

Critically acclaimed
Product: Quality Index | Publisher: Steel Media
 
Quality Index Android, thumbnail 1
Every week, Pocket Gamer sister site Android Quality Index (Android Qi) highlights the newest games to make a critical splash in the cool, seductive waters of the Google Play pool.

Grabbing scores and opinions from all corners of the web, including from Gamezebo, Know Your Mobile, and Life of Android, Qi answers all your Android-related questions before you've even asked them.

Today, we're going to focus on two new contenders vying to be crowned king of your Android device. Both are worthy, but do they have what it takes to win your head, your heart, and your wallet.

Gun it

Cutting through a cloud of burnt rubber and onto the Android Qi chart this week comes Drag Racing: Bike Edition.

This mobile interpretation of the acceleration-centric motorsport doesn't concern itself with steering, focusing instead on rewarding well-timed gear changes.

You can pit your throttle control skills against a large online community of fellow petrolheads, and get to grips with 17 customisable sports bikes over eight high-speed stages.

The folks over at AndroidTapp can attest to Drag Racing: Bike Edition's addictive qualities, with the reviewer warning that "once you get started, it's hard to put down."

Your money and your life

Amassing an impressive trove of treasure further down the Top 10, meanwhile, is coin-obsessed RPG Battleloot Adventure.

If you're sick to death of melodramatic JRPGs, then this light-hearted, no-nonsense turn-based title might be just the diversion you're looking for.

You'll spend the majority of the game crossing swords with enemies (stop sniggering at the back). Luckily, combat is well implemented, offering you quick bursts of virtual violence, which are both entertaining and satisfying.

Pocket Gamer's critic concurs with this positive appraisal, saying that Battleloot Adventure offers a "thoroughly compulsive battle setup" which helps keep "each bite-sized skirmish engaging".

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to polish my broadsword (stop sniggering at the back... again).

You can get the up-to-date information about which games are reviewing best over at the Android Quality Index.
