New Games on Android TV – Week of May 28

There’s a lot of games being launched on Android TV, and we may not have time to cover them individually. These weekly posts give brief summaries of many new games that are being published that have TV support in the Play Store. If you know of a new game, or find one we missed, let us know in the comments below. If you’d like to join the team to play and review games, let us know.

Putty Squad

This new game, seemingly based on the toy Silly Putty, features a blob as the protagonist. This blob can stretch its body, absorb things, and even attack enemies in a platformer environment. It’s a bit pricey compared to many other games on Google Play, but it should maintain its high fidelity graphics on TVs as well as phones.

Beholder

This game seems to be available on some, but not all, of my Android TVs. In this game, you try to exist in a totalitarian society by acting as a spy. While your neighbors are away, you are supposed to bug and report them to the authorities. However, the game does allow you to choose whether to do this, affecting the gameplay.

    “Putty Squad” isn’t a new game per sc. It’s actually based upon/the sequel to the popular (Amiga) game, “Silly Putty”.

    Also, “Putty Squad” is NOT on sale in Japan. It’s still a whopping 1,800 Yen!

    Can you actually play these games on Android TV, though? Are they controller compatible? Has anyone tested? It’s risky to buy games that show up as compatible but don’t show up in the TV’s own play store.
