Snake ’97: Retro Phone Classic
It doesn’t get more old school than this. Remember sitting in the back of the classroom, sneakily playing Snake on your brick-sized – and indestructible – Nokia 3210, believing Snake is the best thing since sliced bread? Well, Snake ’97: Retro Phone Classic is the best thing since the original Snake, bringing the same vintage dot-matrix graphics, adorably simplistic and monotone sound effects, and old school controls to your Android phone that made you get hooked on the biggest mobile game hit of the late 90s. Snake ’97: Retro Phone Classic allows you to play both Snake 1 and Snake 2, contains 5 game modes from 5 different Nokia models (5110, 3210, 8210, 8850, 3310, has 9 original and 3 brand new difficulty levels in both games, and 5 original and 2 additional labyrinths in Snake 2.
Sonic The Hedgehog 2
SEGA’s high-speed classic starring the fastest and bluest hedgehog in the universe – and for the first time in the Sonic-series, also featuring his high-flying sidekick, Miles “Tails” Prower. Having been reimagined for Android devices, Sonic The Hedgehog 2’s modern version carries an old school vibe with its authentically remastered graphics and sound effects, but is equipped with loads of new content, including new levels, new enemies, and a “Boss Attack Mode” in which you have to kick the butts of all of the game’s cunning bosses during a single run. As for the story mode, you have to, at warp speed, race through multifarious environments with Sonic and Miles, and zoom your way through obstacles and enemies to the imminent showdown with the ultimate wrongdoer, Dr. Eggman.
Doom & Destiny Free
Doom & Destiny is not a retro game in the truest sense of the genre – meaning it is not the Android device-optimized remake of an old school classic -, but it has all the makings of a vintage RPG game, and thus the potential to breathe new life into the long-gone vibe of the 8bit and 16bit turn-based RPGs of the late 80s–early 90s. In Doom & Destiny, you control four nerds who are drawn into an enchanted fantasy world where they are mistaken for heroes, and are forced to step on a treacherous road leading to a showdown with an absolutely ridiculous uber-villain. Doom & Destiny does not take itself seriously at all, and comes at you with classic nerd comedy – and plenty of pizza. The game contains over 40 hours of gameplay – half of which is made up of exciting extras -, 100 levels of experience to boost your characters to the max, around 200 special powers and spells, 300 enemies – including the Flying Spaghetti Monster -, 500 items, 700 locations, and 10,000 lines of witty and funny dialog.
