5 of the Best Games For Your Android TV Box in 2016
Games on the Android operating system are a ton of fun, but there are a couple of titles that benefit from having a wider display. This is where Android TV boxes come into the picture – bringing all the extra space you need to better appreciate finer graphics while reducing the strain on your eyes that some games can induce on smaller screens.
Here are the 5 best games of 2016 that do just that:
Final Fantasy IX
JRPG fans rejoice! February saw the release of Final Fantasy IX (FFIX) on both iOS and Android; bringing one of the franchise’s beloved entries to the mobile sector. The 3D graphics translate very well to the larger screen of a TV, while the controls fit perfectly with a controller or an air mouse – whichever method you prefer to use. As for the game itself, FFIX puts players in control of a theater troupe aiming to kidnap a princess – except the princess is willing, and that the troupe is diving head-first into something much bigger than they anticipated. ($20.99 on the Google Play Store)
Miitomo is Nintendo’s first official foray into the mobile sector. It blends elements of messaging apps, social networks, and various mini-games into a surprisingly addictive game. The goal of Miitomo is to help you get to know you and your friends better; asking you to answer a series of questions as you dress up your “Mii” avatar. This weird hybrid of a game makes it a must-try for folks who love to socialize with their friends and want to strengthen their social bonds. (Free to download, with in-app purchases)
Real-time strategy fans will definitely want to pick up MechCom 2 for their Android TV box. In it, you take command of an army of mechanized robots to take down your opponents. You can customize the units you manufacture to best fit the situation you need – giving you much more control over how you shape your army. The sequel to the original MechCom introduces improved graphics while streamlining the user interface – leading to a more polished, high-octane RTS experience that’s perfect for a TV setup. ($1.00 on the Google Play Store)
This is a very pretty collectible card game with exquisite graphics with a cartoony aesthetic that makes it a must-install game on an Android TV box. Train a roster of heroes, fight single-player rounds to gain loot, build your deck of cards, and duke it out with other BattleHand players for superiority. Toss in a healthy mix of sword-and-sorcery fantasy, and you have a strong entry for new CCGs this 2016. (Free to download, with in-app purchases)
I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream
If you love narrative-driven stories and want something with more philosophical meat to chew on, then you will definitely want to pick up a copy of I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream. You take control of five people spared by a supercomputer that wiped out the rest of humanity; torturing them for more than a century before releasing them for one final game. The 1995 game is based on a 1967 short story by Harlan Ellison, but the sheer narrative weight of the story makes it a worthy ethics drama that is still compelling to this day. ($3.99 on the Google Play Store)
