The Feeling of Falling by Niru Fekri- Arnold
The Feeling of Falling is an infinite faller controlled with touch and gyro controls for Android and supported for PC (with mouse and keyboard). The game takes place in a procedurally generated environment where the player is given limited mechanical interaction based on the colour of the background, forcing them to solve different kinds of challenges with different inputs and techniques.
Grav Man by David Cecil
Grav Man is a puzzle platform game where the player takes the role of the titular Grav Man, and must lead him through 3 distinct levels with fiendish puzzles within to get to the exit. In Grav Man though, the player must manipulate the environment using their device to get to the exit, either by dragging the level with one finger, rotating the level with 2 fingers, or using the gyroscope to change the direction that gravity is going.
Moving through the hustle and bustle of a vibrant city, the dangerous and workmanlike industrial area, and floating around in a space station miles above the planet, the player must navigate past environmental hazards, floating enemies, and gravity changing pads, and solve puzzles including switches and manipulating physics objects all to keep Grav Man safe.
With art from Evy Benita, music composed by Adam Price, and sound design by Jose Pablo Ramirez, Grav Man is a fun, fiendish and absolutely addictive mobile game that can’t be missed!

GetZ Away by Shane Hou
GetZ Away is a 3D top-down multiplayer zombie shooter. It supports up to 8 players in one round. The players need to cooperate with others, find the oil tank on the map and push it near the car to refuel it. After the car being refuelled, they can get into the car and run away. Also, the car only allows two passengers, so conflicts between players are inevitable.
Space Mayor by Joel Marshall
Space Mayor is a lighthearted sci-fi strategy game about running a space-station full of interesting and devious characters. You will make complex and far reaching decisions, but you’ll do so using only binary choices, swiping left, or right, to respond to the concerns of your citizens or the demands of your equals. The game features distinctive visual style which evokes Elite and Battle Zone, which, when combined with the games carefully chosen sound palette, creates a retro-sci-fi aesthetic.
Can you face the challenges of governing in deep space? Who can you trust and who is plotting against you? How long will you be able to stay in power, or even stay alive? When you die will they name an airlock after you? The only way to find out is to enter the world of Space Mayor!
