5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week! – Android Apps Weekly

A screenshot of a breaking bad game for the 270th Android Apps Weekly
Welcome to the 270th edition of Android Apps Weekly! Here are the big headlines from the last week:

  • Huawei is preparing an app store in case the U.S. ban never lifts. The company sent a bunch of emails out to developers to encourage them to publish their apps in Huawei’s store. It’s not an unusual practice. Plenty of third party app stores email developers for the same reason. It’s a pragmatic move from Huawei and a half decent contingency plan.
  • Google quietly changed the wording of the Play Store’s refund policy this week. It now says that decisions for a refund can take up to four days. This is much longer than the previous 15 minute window. Google didn’t announce anything so the move just kind of happened. It doesn’t affect the time it takes to process an approved refund or the refund window itself.
  • There were a bunch of mobile game announcements at E3 2019. We’ll briefly go over all of them. Microsoft put Gears POP! up on the Play Store for pre-registration this week. It should launch in the next month or two.
  • Bethesda announced a Commander Keen mobile game to mixed reactions. Some people are excited for a nostalgia trip while others don’t like that it’s a mobile game The game should launch on June 27th of this year.
  • Ubisoft announced Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad for mobile. It’ll feature a third person shooter perspective and it should launch sometime in 2019. You can pre-register for it here.
  • Square Enix announced two mobile games. The first is a remastered edition of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles. The classic GameCube game should launch in winter of 2019. Additionally, Square Enix announce a port of Romancing SaGa 3.
  • A Netflix executive talked about a Stranger Things mobile RPG during E3 along with a potential Fortnite crossover. We don’t know a lot about this one. It should have a 1980’s newspaper comic animation style and its set to launch in 2020 at some point. That’s all we know for now.

Planet Sling

Price: Free / Up to $11.99

Planet Sling is an arcade runner with some unique mechanics. You spin around planets and launch at the right angle to hit the next planet. You earn points for each planet you hit. The game features a couple of game modes, some unlockable content, and simple controls. There are also in-app purchases. However, it’s for unlocking ships and has no bearing no game play. Thus, it’s not free to win. It’s a neat little free gem.
