The best new Android games from November 2021


Blue Archive

Price: Free to play

Blue Archive is a new gacha RPG from Nexon. It focuses primarily on cute characters, easy combat, and there are some social simulator elements. You obtain various characters, form bonds with them, and use them to defeat bad guys. The combat is a little basic. You definitely don’t play a game like this if you favor having full control of your characters. However, the execution, music, and story are pretty decent if you’re into this kind of stuff and the game doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s free to play, but otherwise it’s a solid play.


Eternal Saga

Price: Free to play

Eternal Saga is a strategy game with RPG elements. Players create armies of mercenaries and do battle against bad guys. There are a few different races to choose from and tons of unit combinations so players have decent control over the makeup of their armies. Combat is a bit easier where you can choose basic commands but otherwise, your armies kind of do what they want. There is a story to play through and it’s all decently executed. There are free-to-play elements, though, so prepare to see deals pop up when you log into the game.


FarmVille 3

Price: Free to play

FarmVille 3 is the latest farming sim in the popular series. The new one has its pros and cons. It’s easy to play with bright graphics and goofy, fun music. You still do the usual stuff like plant crops, breed animals, create items, and stuff like that. There are also interesting mechanics like breeding new types of animals and retiring the old animals so you free up space. The game is cutesy and you don’t need money to play as long as you’re patient. That said, the energy system can be quite confining and will stop you in your tracks, especially early on. The game also asks you to pay with gems a lot but doesn’t give you a lot of opportunities to earn them. It’s decent overall as long as you’re patient.


Football Manager 2022 Mobile

Price: $9.99 with in-app purchases

Football Manager 2022 Mobile is the latest in the Football Manager franchise. It’s a football (soccer) simulator where you take over a team and try to make it a winner. The game boasts more than 60 leagues from 25 different countries. The game also includes various tools for players to make the best possible decisions. It’s not terribly different from Football Manager 2021 so players of that game can probably skip this year if you really want to. Additionally, the game seems to suffer from optimization issues that we hope the developer fixes sooner rather than later.


The Fox in the Forest

Price: $4.99

The Fox in the Forest is a mobile port of the board game of the same name. It’s a card-based adventure game where players duel with opponents. The mechanics are similar to War, but with a lot more strategy. Each player is dealt 13 cards and the goal is to win the most tricks. There are some mechanics like a trump suit to make things interesting. It’s a reasonably good implementation and it’s also cheaper than the physical card game.


Kathy Rain: Director’s Cut

Price: $4.99

Kathy Rain: Director’s Cut is a re-release of the 2016 point-and-click mystery game. Kathy is a journalist who begins investigating the death of her grandfather. She then uncovers all kinds of crazy stuff over the course of the investigation. The game is set in the 1990s, includes 40 hand-drawn environments, and over 4,000 lines of spoken dialog. The Director’s Cut adds 700 new lines of dialog, streamlined controls, controller support, more animations, and more stuff to unlock. It’s a good mystery game overall.


Pokemon Cafe ReMix

Price: Free to play

Pokemon Cafe ReMix is a re-release of the Pokemon Cafe  Mix. The game underwent a massive overhaul, cleaned up some stuff, and added some content and features. At its core, it’s a puzzle game mixed with a restaurant sim. It uses match-three mechanics to produce food every time you match up Pokemon’s faces. The longer you play, the more Pokemon you unlock to help you. It’s technically not a new game, but the revamp was so major that it might as well be a re-release.


PUBG: New State

Price: Free to play

PUBG: New State is the biggest release in a month with several big mobile game releases. At its core, this is PUGB. You drop into a map with 99 other combatants and duke it out until only one person remains. New State adds improved graphics along with new mechanics such as dodging, drones, new vehicles, and more. The game is an actual sequel and takes place 10 years after the events of the original PUBG. Most of the in-app purchases revolve around cosmetics and the game is a bit stingy with it. Plus, the game doesn’t run very well on mid-range and low-end Android phones. Otherwise, this is easily going to be a top two or three release in 2021.


Revived Witch

Price: Free to play

Revived Witch is a fairly typical gacha-style mobile RPG. What makes it special is the excellent execution. The game is developed by Yostar, developers of Arknights and Azur Lane. The 2D graphics with 3D lighting looks quite good and the game is augmented by its strong soundtrack. The story is also pretty decent and the gacha pull rates are fairly reasonable. Players make their way through dungeons, fight bad guys, and progress through the story. Of course, you upgrade your characters as you go. It’s not the most unique gacha, but the execution is much better than most in the genre.


Tales of Luminaria

Price: Free to play

Tales of Luminaria is the latest mobile Tales game. The game boasts a lineup of 21 protagonists along with engaging combat gameplay, good music, and above-average voice acting. It is technically a gacha although the game does a decent job of not feeling like one. The only gripe we have are the camera controls in that they are virtually non-existent and can hinder things a little bit. It definitely has its ups and downs, but it’s good overall.
