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 โ€” I'll have to reference my phone instead of the Google Play website โ€” but I think the "top new" charts in the mobile version are more in the spirit of the original idea of these weekly posts โ€” 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
