Whenever you level up, you can place attribute points that improve your statistics. You can also visit the academy and upgrade your skills in a variety of different areas. It feels like a box-ticking exercise, but we like that small drip-feed of progression in MMORPGs.

FIST OF THE NORTH STAR

Glen FoxSep 08, 2019
Overall, Fist of the North Star: Legends ReVIVE is well worth checking out for series fans, and it offers enough for fans of gacha games to check it out. You might even enjoy it if you’ve never played or dislike gacha games, as the combat system is very fun indeed.

Men in Black: Global Invasion

Glen FoxSep 04, 2019
Our only criticisms at this point are that it’s a bit barebones and could really use a few more game modes to feel more fully fleshed out. We’re also mildly concerned at the potential level of pay to win required for the later, more challenging campaign battles. But, if you like Pokémon GO and gacha RPGs, this is an awesome blend of the two. We’d thoroughly recommend at least checking it out.

Dead Cells

Glen FoxSep 02, 2019
If you don’t have a controller though, your mileage with it may vary. It’s a very challenging and complex game from the get-go, and the virtual controls don’t really do it any favours. It needs a total rework in the control department if it’s going to function as comfortably with just a touchscreen as it does on controller.

Dead Zed

Glen FoxAug 31, 2019
Overall, we’ve had an awful lot of fun with Dead Zed and aren’t finished with it just yet. It’s not going to win any mobile game awards but it does offer a bunch of solid and satisfying zombie-slaying fun each time you’ve got a few minutes to spare.

Pokémon Masters

Glen FoxAug 29, 2019
So is Pokémon Masters worth playing? We have mixed feelings. If you’re a fan of the franchise, you’ll get a kick out of seeing your favourite Pokémon and trainers in such stunning detail. The writing is also a joy, providing a genuinely engaging story that we didn’t feel the need to skip. Core Pokémon RPG fans will find the battle system too easy, with little challenge. Heck, even gacha RPG fans might find the poor AI baffling, as their Pokémon don’t use the elemental strengths to their advantage often.

Farm Punks

If we have anything positive to say about Farm Punks, it’s that the general aesthetic is quite lovely. We like the cartoon, cel-shaded visuals and the wide variety of fruit characters to collect. It breathes a little extra life into this bafflingly bizarre game.

Perfect World Mobile

Glen FoxAug 23, 2019
While we appreciate the effort to move away from autoplay thanks to the toggle button and fun movement abilities, it doesn’t really make much of a difference. Quests are still kill an arbitrary number of monsters or collect a certain number of things followed by a far too lengthy chat with a dull NPC.

Gears POP!

iOS

Glen FoxAug 22, 2019
Gears POP! is a mixed bag. We appreciate the attempt to change up the Clash Royale formula, but we won’t personally make the transition. Gears POP! is a busier, less balanced, and uglier game with an unsatisfying cover system that doesn’t do enough to change up the formula.

If you’re suitably impressed by GameHouse’s storytelling and game design efforts you can sign up for Original Stories at a cost of £7.49 a month. This gives you unfettered access to 32 games, but there’s no getting around the fact that Welcome to Primrose Lake is more expensive than your typical casual timewaster.

Dungeon Tales : RPG Card Game

Sam SimmonsAug 16, 2019
I am sure if I went looking for problems and played a lot of similar mobile games then I would have more criticisms to lay on Dungeon Tales, but I don’t want to. As far as a free game goes, I think Dungeon Tales delivers on almost every level. We can unlock everything through gameplay, there are no random packs that give you duplicates upon duplicates. Dungeon Tales is a CCG RPG with roguelike elements to keep gameplay fresh and enjoyable.

Yokai Dungeon

iOS

Sam SimmonsAug 13, 2019
I can see Yokai Dungeon being a superb game after an update or two, but unfortunately, that’s not how reviews work. As of right now, the game needs to change its controls, perhaps to a one-touch method mentioned earlier. Also, the game needs to reduce how many adverts it shows and make sure gameplay stops if it runs an advert mid-way through a go (which no game should do).

Rogue Legacy

Sam SimmonsAug 12, 2019
If you are a casual gamer who doesn’t want a genuinely challenging mobile game, then please don’t download Rogue Legacy and leave a bad review. Accept that they design it to be hard and that it requires a lot of practice before you will get near completing it.

Gigantic X

Glen FoxAug 02, 2019
Overall, it doesn’t do much to harm Gigantic X, as the game surrounding it is absolutely solid and well worth checking out for the sort of player that likes to grind out loot.

DOOM II

Simon ReedAug 01, 2019
Ultimately then, Doom 2 is not the perfect mobile port of id Software’s superlative shooter – but you have to ask if such a thing is even possible. Considering the circumstances, this is a perfectly acceptable port – just don’t go expecting it to be an entirely smooth ride.

Elune

Glen FoxJul 25, 2019
If none of that bothers you in the slightest and you like these sort of games then Elune does offer a higher level of polish than many of its competitors. It’s good looking with excellent animations and the unique formation and summoning systems might just be enough to get you to invest in it.

Hyper Light Drifter

Glen FoxJul 25, 2019
It might not be perfect, but it is perfectly playable. Overall, we found our time with Hyper Light Drifter on mobile to be a positive experience. The touch controls work and don’t cause any huge issues aside from when you need to heal on iPad and the general performance is decent, even if it doesn’t quite feel as silky smooth as the promised 120 fps on iPad Pro.

Pokémon Rumble Rush

Glen FoxJul 24, 2019
Not only is it dull, repetitive, and mind-numbingly easy but it’s clearly not even finished. Everything about it just screams “placeholder”. The low-res forest background, the not at all cute Pokémon design, and the awful PS1 era 3D visuals. It looks like a developer made a proof of concept for a Pokémon game.

Sky: Children of the Light

iOS
10.0
Glen FoxJul 18, 2019
We could gush forever about how much we absolutely love Sky, but we’re going to bring our review to a close here. Ultimately, it’s a game best experienced for yourself, and we recommend it to literally every single person who owns an iOS device. Sky is a breathtaking, heartwarming, and incredibly rewarding experience.

Evil Lands: Online Action RPG

iOSAndroid
7.00
Glen FoxJul 14, 2019
For Evil Lands to have any sort of longevity, the developers need to put our more PvE content at a pretty rapid pace, because what’s there right now simply isn’t enough. PvP players will have plenty to keep them busy, but pay to win will reign supreme in that format, putting off those of us that don’t want to drop the cash.

Mighty Quest For Epic Loot

AndroidiOS
7.00
Glen FoxJul 11, 2019
Ultimately, Mighty Quest For Epic Loot’s longevity for you depends on how much time or cash you’re willing to drop into it, and how seriously you take PvP. If you just want a game that will provide you with a steady stream of loot per day for minimal effort, this is solid.

Dr. Mario World

Glen FoxJul 11, 2019
And this is Nintendo we’re talking about. We’d expect this sort of morally bankrupt behaviour from the vast majority of mobile developers and publishers that are out to make a quick buck, but not from Nintendo. But as bad as that is alone, our biggest disappointment is down to the gameplay itself, which is so bog standard and dull that we already feel like we’ve seen enough on day one. That’s the most damning indictment of all.

Heroic - Magic Duel

Android
6.00
Glen FoxJul 07, 2019
One positive of Heroic is its visual style though. The dark fantasy aesthetics do separate it from Clash Royale's cartoony visuals, so if you're not a fan of them then Heroic at least offers an alternative.

TEPPEN

AndroidiOS

Glen FoxJul 05, 2019
Overall, we’re pretty impressed so far with Teppen. It’s going to take some getting used to as it does offer a style of gameplay we’re not familiar with, but it feels fresh and exciting in a way that card battlers have struggled to ever since Hearthstone made it big. We’re also huge fans of the presentation, which is pretty stellar, and the inclusion of genuine Capcom properties is very welcome indeed. A good start for this new card battler.

FIRST HERO

Glenn WilsonJul 05, 2019
If you’re on the lookout for a new strategy MMO – and, in particular, if you’re new to the genre and find the games you’ve tried confusing or overwhelming – First Hero is worth a try for the combat alone.
