by Caitlin M. Foyt

In today's batch of Fresh Android games, put your diligent ninja training to the test and grab your tackle box for a tranquil fishing trip out at the lake.

NinJump (Android) FREE

Ninjas are known for being stealthy soldiers, spies and assassins. Folklore and pop culture depicts them as being practically invisible, moving and climbing swiftly though the shadows. In this fast-paced game, you must use your Spiderman-like ninja skills to climb up the sides of buildings and other city scapes, trying to get up as high as you can. But, keep on the look out as you have a lot of enemies out there. You must defend yourself against the killer squirrels, angry birds, enemy ninjas, throwing stars and exploding bombs that will meet you along the way. Make one little mistake and you’re a goner.

Big Sport Fishing 3D (Android) $3.99
