Fresh Android Games for Apr. 27: History Great Battles Medieval, Pocket Dinosaurs

by Ian Black

Try “the most advanced game” on Android (History Great Battles Medieval) or help save the dinosaurs (Pocket Dinosaurs).

History Great Battles Medieval ($6.99)

I’m gonna get medieval on this app.

Optimized for Android tablets powered by TEGRA 2 chips, this war game bills itself as “the most advanced game” on the Android Market. The free form landscape lets you decide when and where to do battle – within the historical framework of The Hundred Years War.

You’ll find over 100 different military units – all based in the facts of the war. You can specialize the skills of the men under your command, manage equipment, and strategize your maneuvers.

Pocket Dinosaurs (Free)

Carry your dinosaurs with you wherever you go.

In this game, the dinosaurs have had it with earth and are trying to leave. Without opposable thumbs, the best exit strategy they come up with is to build a dinosaur pyramid high into the sky by climbing on each other’s backs. Unfortunately, aliens don’t want them to leave and begin dropping meteorites, poison fruit, and a 500-ton weight, to bust up the pyramid and stop them.

Tilt your phone left and right to avoid the dropping items and help the dinosaurs survive. When the dinosaurs fall, you must catch them with a tap.
