Space Frontier 2

While we talked about idle clickers for passing the time last summer, this time, we’re talking about the most classic of all classic genres. Luckily, arcade games are as simple as they are varied, and that’s why you can find all sorts of themes and ideas. We fell in love with Space Frontier 2 right from the start, with it being an excellent sequel to one of the best games of 2017. Flying a rocket as high into outer space as possible isn’t easy, but it sure is fun. [Download]

Diggerman

While it may sound like a joke, we’ve found a ton of quality games with digging as their main and primary concept. Spelunky has many offspring, and we have a special soft spot for Diggerman, a fast-paced title where quick reflexes are essential in order to advance. Not to mention its lovely retro look. [Download]

Hole.io

There’s no doubt that Hole.io is going to be one of the most played titles of the summer. Well, we could really say that it already is, but there’s still time left on the clock. This curious mix between the ball-eating action from “.io” games and the greatness of Katamari Damacy works well. The rounds are short and you’ll find yourself playing over and over again until you manage to come out victorious. [Download]

Knife Hit

You can’t talk about arcade games for mobiles devices without talking about Ketchapp. The French company has been delighting us with these types of games for years now and it seems like there’s no end in site. In Knife Hit, you have to do something as simple as hit the objects in the center of the screen with your knives. This concept gets more and more complicated as you advance until it becomes a real nightmare. Without a doubt, it’s one of our favorite Ketchapp games. [Download]

PAKO 2

While we’ve talked at length about the Pako saga, it’s always worth remembering that you can enjoy a gem like PAKO 2. It’s a great title that fully immerses you in thrilling car chases with outstanding audio/visuals. Fleeing from the police becomes an art form here. [Download]

Fluffy Fall

Dodging obstacles tends to be the maxim of any self-respecting endless runner and Fluffy Fall is one of the top in its category. You control the movements of a sort of adorable stuffed animal on a free fall through an intricate world of evil traps. We don’t know why this squishy little thing is treated so poorly, but it’s up to you to help it get as far as possible. [Download]

ChickenPOP!

We all know chickens can’t fly (not very far, anyways), but it seems like that’s not going to stop our clucking character from trying. Your mission is to make sure your fowl friend bounces off of strategically-placed bubbles and climbs higher and higher in the sky. Eventually, the game is taken one step further and you’ll find yourself smiling while experiencing its wacky concept. ChickenPOP! is an outrageous and twisted game that you’re sure to love. [Download]

Clumsy Climber

Climbing so that the water doesn’t swallow you up doesn’t sound like a good time, but Clumsy Climber knows how to use the model of the classic QWOP and make it its own so that we can’t put it down. It’s a game that’s as addictive as it is exasperating. It all revolves around tapping the screen at the exact right moment to continue climbing. [Download]

Fastlane: Road to Revenge

Any true gamer is going to enjoy Fastlane: Road to Revenge, a dizzying arcade game that turns a car game into a bona fide shoot ’em up. It’s soundtrack is outstanding, along with its tone in general that bring it closer to the silliest installments of Need for Speed. [Download]

Drop Wizard Tower

There’s nothing like the vintage feel of those games that emulate classics from the old school arcades. Drop Wizard Tower is a clear homage to an entire generation of games that many of us grew up playing, and that aimed to provide plenty of fun while gobbling up all our quarters. It’s a super fun title with tons of possibilities. And listening to its chiptune melodies will have you shedding a nostalgic tear or two. [Download]

Amazing Katamari Damacy

One of the most original concepts from the successful generation of the PlayStation 2, has adapted well to the mobile world with Amazing Katamari Damacy. An endless runner that that has you turn all sorts of objects into a ball (dung beetle-style), in order to get more and more points. The weird humor and great soundtrack of the saga also accompany you on this adventure. [Download]

Cavefall

Descending full-speed down a cave is back in style thanks to the masterpiece called Downwell. While Cavefall may offer a slightly more humble concept, without a doubt, it’s a fun title that’s packed with charisma. You’ll move from right to left between the walls of the cave to dodge enemies and traps trying to trip you up and put and end to your descent. [Download]

Retro Highway

We’re back to our passion for all things retro, although this time we’re fully immersed in pixelated motorcycle races under the blue sky. No, we’re not talking about Hang-On, but actually Retro Highway. This game is clearly aware of those that came before it, but it sets itself apart thanks to its extremely polished graphics and gameplay that’s as current as it gets. [Download]
