In this daily blog (and video)-series I take a first impressions look at the best mobile games that I come by. Be sure to share your favorite mobile game with the rest of us in the comments below!

Notice; I nearly uninstalled this game after 30 seconds, dismissing it because of its "childish" look, but this game has me hooked now! 

Merge 3 "things" together to gain a new "thing", with the ultimate goal being to build out your home base (no pvp, don't worry, it's not a base-building game) by continually merging new things together to reveal more of your base and get more dragons.That's the core gameplay in this puzzle game.

You gain exp and "things" for your base by playing through puzzle-based levels where you have to merge three statues, which are locked down in areas of the level only accessible through - you guessed it - merging the right things together. 

There are no obtrusive ads and while in-app purchases go all the way up to $100, the game never forces you to spend any money. An easy recommendation, if you're looking for an alternative puzzle game. 

My thoughts on Merge Dragons:

      Hello everybody! I'm developing my first big game and almost done with finishing all the mechanics, the only few things that left is some balancing and some enemies behavior corrections. But scince I'm developing it on my own and it's 3rd person shooter the game needs a lot of content such as animation characters environment meshes and so on. And there is a problem: I don't know what to do next. So let me explain situation a little bit better. I was doing very simple games for 3 years when I started game developing and a year ago I decided to create a really big and serios project. So for these year I've managed to create all mechanics balance them and now I got a game that can be played and people (who tested it) enjoy it. The only thing is left is to bring "beaty" to the project. I can model all static meshes for the levels, create some FX, textures and I've even managed to create all enemy characters. So I'm more a programmer than an artist and I simply don't know how to create all other stuff such as animations, player characters and so on. It's realy bad, because for now I can't even show my work to the people, because it's very ugly and poor. And I don't have money to pay artists. So please can you give some advices on what to do in this situation.

      I'm developing an engine for a 2D game in C ++ and for some days I've been looking for a way to protect the images and audio of my future game. I know there is no 100% protection and that someone would be able to open these files, but I mean the regular user who just installed the game, prevent it from modifying the sprites, change the sound, overwrite the xml files with game map data.
      I downloaded some games made in Unity and noticed that a .assets extension is used, in Diablo 2 it is used .ma0, .mpq, .data, in FEZ .pak, in Super Meat Boy only a .tp file. In other words, you can not open and edit any of these files in a text editor or unzip with winrar, they offer a minimum level of protection. How is this done? Do I have to create my own binary file format or is there any program that makes it easier to work?

      Hi there,
      We are small indie team developing a casual mobile game. We are trying to implement the following two effects in our game.
      1. Ice to Normal Blocks:  https://youtu.be/q71RaKHn-iw?t=1227
      Here a nice particle effect happens when all the ice blocks are turned to normal blocks. We want to do this.
       // Aiming Dots:  https://youtu.be/q71RaKHn-iw?t=127
      We want to implement this aiming dots for a ball in our game.
      Does anyone know –
      1. How to implement these two effects? We have a good programmer. Any link to an online reference will be enough.
      2. Is there a asset at Unity asset store that could help us?
      Thanks. Any suggestions appreciated.
