Lots of games roll out every month in our Android catalogue and we’ve spend a big chunk of this sweltering month picking out the best of the best. If you don’t know what to play, no better way to remedy that than taking a gander at the works included on this list of our top Android video games released on Uptodown during the month of August. Remember: they’re all free and lots of them can only be downloaded from our site.

Light x Shadow

MOBAs appear to have piqued the interest of Android gamers and we’ve found a good number of titles that embrace this genre. Breaking free of the army of MOBA clones, Light x Shadow differentiates itself from the rest with an anime aesthetic that’s quite uncommon among games like this. Multiplayer fun sweetened with the most attractive visual style. [Download]

Dragon Project

The landing of a fleet of games that have already made the rounds in Asian territory is doing great things for the Android catalogue, what with all the high-quality projects that really raise the bar. Dragon Project is one of them.

This MMORPG takes you on a hunt for all kinds of Monster Hunter-style creatures, and the oddest thing is that the game is played with the screen in vertical mode. Check out the number of weapons and armor you can kit your hero out with. [Download]

Fortress of Champions

We’re looking at a brilliant mishmash of popular concepts presented here as a defense and attack game. The strategic component is more notable than ever, given that the layout of your buildings is key to defending your own fortress. A terrifically fun game with seductively bright graphics. [Download]

Final Fantasy Awakening

This Final Fantasy may not have been developed by Square Enix, but that doesn’t make it an ounce less alluring than all the rest. This frenetic MMO will hardly give you a minute to breathe. In a good way, obviously.

The game, also called Final Fantasy Type-0 Online, focuses more on the action than on the RPG elements, but even still has all the typical traits of this endless franchise: an alluring story, nice character designs, and the classic invocations like Ifrit, Shiva, and Bahamut.

God of Highschool

Manganime fisticuffs for everybody in this fantastic game based on a Korean manwa and anime that offers a nice cocktail of school adventure, Asian folklore fantasy, and a dash of fanservice. All delivered in an outstanding package, with a potent visual style and a frenetic gameplay.

Combos to the end, tons of characters to unlock, and kinetics that immerse you in the work by Park Yong-Je. [Download]

Demise of Nations

The purest strategy is noteworthy for its absence on Android given how complex it tends to be to deliver. This doesn’t mean there aren’t brilliantly elaborated attempts to adapt this classic genre, among them Demise of Nations.

The great challenge for the developers in terms of bring the experience of this kind of game to Android involves making the interface and browsing through the menus as smooth as possible. And this game manages to do it with flying colors. [Download] [Our blog review]

Monster Metropolis

Bored of construction and city management simulators? No worries, just put a giant monster in your life and come to blows in turns against other enormous beasts of a markedly odd design.

Now that films like Colossal and Shin Godzilla have brought Kaiju back into the limelight, no better way to participate in the trend than with a game that brilliantly combines management strategy with monster fights. [Download] [Our blog review]

Road Warriors

The speed at which everything happens in this arcade racing game sometimes makes you lose a bit of control, but that’s what this chaotic and fun game is all about. In it you have to survive attacks from other vehicles while destroying them so you can beat them all to the finish line.

A game with the simplest controls you can think of, normally just a tap to the screen, with which you can do pirouettes and destroy your rivals. Plus it’s all wrapped up in some marvelous pixel art. [Download] [Our blog review]

Flippy Knife

Fling a knife and hit the bullseye in the four mini-games included in simulator for throwing sharp objects, complete with a physics engine that will stun you with its realism.

This title involves a proper challenge, as getting the hang of handling each of the different knives and sharp items is rather harder than it would first appear. But once you get into the groove, you won’t stop, as the game serves up a whopping helping of addiction. [Download] [Our blog review]

Miracle Merchant

It might seem like mixing potions is not that entertaining of a job, but this card game confirms the opposite thanks to its delightful visual style and how fun its premise is.

You manage a potion shop and have to create different four-card combos from five decks while following each customer’s indications to deliver the potions they need. And all with complexity of having a ton of different mixes that give a range of results. Don’t miss this experience of alchemy that evokes all the childhood nostalgia your favorite Christmas science kits. [Download] [Our blog review]
