Looking for new apps for your Android phone or tablet? Check out our weekly round-up for the latest apps and click on the links to download them for free.
1. Thor: TDW – The Official Game (Get it for your android) Free
The Thor sequel is pretty great by Marvel film standards: even as it incorporates familiar characters and settings, it’s surprisingly original. I wish I could say the same about Gameloft’s mobile tie-in, which is undeniably a re-skinned version of the company’s Dungeon Hunter game. At least comics fans will recognize a few of the top-down environments while they’re hammering endless waves of bad guys, and the game includes various costumes including Odin and Beta Ray Bill.

6. Tank Battles (Get it for your android) Free
Just about every Gameloft title is an excuse to make fun of the company’s lack of originality yet Tank Battles is actually pretty unique. It’s a four-player battle game that’s sort of like a top-down version of Battlezone, only with modern upgradeable weapons, armor, and vehicles. 80 single-player levels and a handful of multiplayer arenas are available, but watch out for the typical Gameloft in-app purchases. (PS The song in the trailer is a rip-off of Jet’s “Are You Gonna Be My Girl” Yes we concentrate on the music that much).
