Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead
Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead is the latest Bridge Constructor game on mobile. The game mixes the main mechanics of Bridge Constructor with some of the themes and story elements from The Walking Dead. Players construct bridges to get safely across the level an onto the next one. The game includes tons of zombies, cameos from popular characters from the series, and plenty of levels to play. It’s a lot like Bridge Constructor: Portal but with zombies instead of robots. It’s also relatively inexpensive and has no in-app purchases or ads.
Price: $1.99 with in-app purchases
Deemo Reborn is a re-release of Rayark’s popular rhythm game. It was one of the first games to mix a story with rhythm elements and it was one of the best. The remake includes new songs and story elements from the first game. It’s pretty good overall but it’s not without some issues. The game could’ve used a little extra polish and some things like the calibration is a bit off for some devices. Plus, you really do need a higher end device to enjoy this one. It’s really good, but we hope Rayark adds in some optimization in future updates.
Price: Free to play
Empires Mobile is a strategy game similar in scope to games like Clash of Clans. Players build their kingdom, train troops, and take down opponents. This one actually includes troop control, though, so it’s a step above in some cases. Some of the other game features are heroes, a choice of race (elf, dwarf, or human), and some social elements to play with people. This one launched with a few bugs but the developers are aware of them and plan to fix most of them. It’s a good strategy time killer for fans of the genre.
The First Tree
The First Tree is an adventure game with two stories. The first follows a fox trying to find her missing family while the second focuses on a son reconnecting with his father in Alaska. Players control the fox but uncover clues about the son as they progress. The graphics are pleasing to look at and the soundtrack is quite good as well. There are also platformer an puzzle elements. It’s a short game at roughly two hours according to the developer, but the chill experience makes up for it.
Forager is a 2D open world game with plenty of things to do. The game includes crafting, resource collecting, resource management, and you can build things like, well, buildings. There are even some enemies to defeat, puzzles to solve, and secrets to find. It’s a lot like a 2D Minecraft except with a larger emphasis on combat. It’s a bit expensive at $7.99, but there is enough to do to justify it for many players.
MARVEL Realm of Champions
Price: Free to play
MARVEL Realm of Champions is the latest free to play game in the MARVEL universe. This one is a MOBA style brawler. Players engage in three versus three combat with their favorite champions as the main game mode. There is also an arena deathmatch mode (two versus two), a Stronghold game mode, and an Onslaught game mode if you want to switch things up. Most MARVEL games are gachas where you collect tons of heroes. This one tries to give you the option to play as a single hero. The microtransactions are pretty bad with this one and players are complaining of bot issues. Hopefully the developers fix this one up sooner rather than later because it’s otherwise pretty good.
Oceans Board Game
Price: Free / $0.99
Oceans Board Game is a mobile recreation of the original board game. It stays mostly faithful to the physical board game. It starts with you laying down some ocean creatures. You can buff them in various ways , feed them, and use them on your opponents. It’s card based with over 100 cards to draw and play. The game also includes pass-and-play local multiplayer as well as offline play against an AI opponent. Apparently, the AI uses a neural network to get better and better. That’s kind of neat. In any case, it’s relatively inexpensive and a good overall board game.
Price: Free to play
Shining Beyond is a mobile RPG with gacha elements and some idle game elements. It plays like a standard mobile gacha for the most part. There is a story, you summon characters, and level up those characters. However, you can also take part in various activities that take place in the background while you’re not there. Thus, the player earns resources even when they’re not active. There are some bugs and flaws here and there. The difficulty scaling is also off putting for newer players. It’s a good game as long as you don’t mind the longer than usual grind.
Star Wars KOTOR II
Star Wars KOTOR II is a mobile remake of the popular PC and console game from years ago. It faithfully recreates the experience with the only major difference being the on-screen controls. You create a character, decide its fate by making choices in the game, and then eventually finish the game. Star Wars KOTOR II was originally heralded for its deep choice consequences and it holds up pretty well to this day. The original game was rushed with bugs and a lot of those bugs still exist. Plus, some devices, like the LG V60 in dual-screen mode, have some issues with crashing. Otherwise, it’s just as good as the original.
Tomb Toad is an adventure game with puzzle and dungeon crawling mechanics. It boasts over 100 levels to play through and each one has traps, treasure, puzzles, and monster to defeat. The mechanics are interesting with this one. You rotate the game map in order to move in specific directions. The unique movement is what creates the game’s challenge. Plus, to top things off, it includes a level editor so you can create your own stuff and share it with other players. The retro pixel art make it look old, but it feels like a modern mobile game.
