by Caitlin M. Foyt

In today's batch of Fresh Android games, play a classic platform game with a twist, take flight as a ninja-like panda, or command robots to build new civilizations.

Droid Odyssey BETA (Android) FREE

Droid Odyssey BETA is a platform jumper for your Android phone. This game is a world of bright colors and tricky puzzles. Playing as a tiny robot, you will navigate your way through a series of increasingly difficult levels where you must overcome a series of obstacles. In each level, you also must do your best to collect as many items as you can, which you then use to throw in various directions. This game doesn’t last long, but by the time you have finished, you just might want to play it all over again.

Flying Panda (Android) $3.99

The panda in this game doesn’t have a pair of wings, he just happens to be incredibly docile. In Flying Panda, you must navigate your way through a tiny village by running and jumping to avoid falling down a pit to your death. The object of the game is to run as far as you can while picking up as many colorful jewels as possible. Tap the right side of your screen to jump and double tap it twice (quickly, or it won’t fire) to release your grapple hook. Your grapple hook will help you swing across gaps in the pathway, just like a ninja.

Astral Commander Lite (Android) FREE

In the game of Astral Commander Lite, you are the Astral Commander. To play this simple, and very addicting game, you must direct high-tech robots to collect all of the materials that are necessary for constructing a base on alien planets. When things get dangerous, open fire on your enemies. The developers have noted that this game is very easy to play and it includes five different levels. There are also different gameplay modes to choose from. Aim for a high score and see how you measure up on the global leader board.
