Oh look, it's Minecraft Pocket Edition at the top of the Android paid game charts, recovered from last week' brief bout of Ruzzle fever. There's not a single new game on the Android top paid charts, just the usual suspects shuffling about. Mosquitoes are starting to breed in it.
The free chart isn't much better. There are a few games on there that weren't around last week, but they're more older games experiencing a resurgence of popularity, instead of some hot new thing. It's depressing.
There are new games coming out for Android. I play them every week. It's just so hard to find them that the rush of new Android users grab for the games they know about — Angry Birds, Words with Friends, Temple Run — and the newer titles get a pass.
You know what would be nice? A new releases section on Google Play. I realise sorting games by release date is incredibly difficult, but I'm sure they've got someone at Google with the tech savvy to make it happen.
