Blast away futuristic cybercriminals as the JYDGE! [Game of the Week]
Update April 6, 2018: Check out JYDGE, the best game released for Android this week. Then, celebrate The Masters’ tournament with ShotOnline Golf!
In a futuristic world where violent cyberpunk gangs are a real problem (and the letter “U” has inexplicably been replaced with “Y”) only the JYDGE can save the world from chaos.
JYDGE is a top-down twin-stick shooter that is an absolute blast to play. You are the JYDGE, a cybernetic enforcement officer who uses his Gavel (see: big freaking gun) to dole out justice.
Each level features different challenges you’ll need to complete to progress through the game. In that way, this game has a bit of a rogue-like element to it where you may keep replaying levels with different upgrade combinations until you complete all the medals.
With a game that has you replay levels over and over again, it’s imperative that the game be fun to play with a great soundtrack that isn’t super repetitive and JYDGE absolutely delivers. Check out my full review if you need more convincing.

ShotOnline Golf: World Championship
With the Masters Tournament currently underway at Augusta National Golf Club it seemed only fitting to include a newer golfing game on this week’s recommendation.
ShotOnline is an interesting title in that the actual parts where you’re playing golf are fantastic — the graphics are beautiful, the controls are easy to use, and the game has good potential for fun. The only thing that holds it back, in my mind, is the lengthy tutorial section that just seems to go on and on.
Fortunately, if you’re planning to bunker down and watch golf on TV all afternoon, you can passively play this game at the same time. The key feature in this game seems to be the Betting Challenge which lets you challenge online opponents to 1-vs-1 challenges in real-time. Use your winnings to upgrade your equipment and attire to improve your stats.
If you’re a fan of golf games and have the patience to outlast the tutorial section, you should have some fun with this game!
