Vector‘s appearance as one of two new games in this week’s Android chart has got me thinking about switching things up. There’s just not enough variety in the traditional week-to-week top games rankings, so starting next week I’ll be tracking top new games instead.

It’ll be a little more work — I’ll have to reference my phone instead of the Google Play website — but I think the “top new” charts in the mobile version are more in the spirit of the original idea of these weekly posts — to help readers discover new games they might have otherwise missed.

Games like Vector, through I’ve posted about the playable action movie parkour sequence several times now. That even a small portion of the game is available for free seems extravagant on the developer’s part. You should have it on your phone.

Tune in next week for the freshness.
