Hitman: Sniper ($4.99)
Hitman: Sniper is the newest sequel for Android users of the popular shooting game developed by Square Enix. Hitman Go was another game that we enjoyed playing in 2014 but in this year, as well. Just as the name suggests, Hitman: Sniper is a fixed position shooting game where you once again play as Agent 47. You will need to make use of skill, subtlety, subterfuge and the environment to complete your contracts. The game comes with over 150 missions and 13 epic sniper rifles. You can also play along with your friends to make the game even more entertaining.

PES Club Manager (Free)
I’ve always been a big fan of the Pro Evolution Soccer franchise of games from Konami, playing its early versions as a kid.

The app is actually a web-based portal that provides a suite of interactive visualization, analysis tools, and data products which bring access to mapped lunar data products from past and current lunar missions. This app will appeal with lunar scientists, engineers, mission planners, but also with anybody who was a passion for astronomy.
