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!
Alchemica is all about exploring randomly-generated areas to find crafting materials, craft items using said materials, and then sell them in your store. The crafting process includes a "match-3"-like mini-game, and during the exploration process, you'll encounter and fight monsters in a very classic RPG-style combat (with a lovely art-style, I might add!).
I enjoyed playing Alchemica, but it has a lot of story and NPC conversations, especially in the beginning, so if you're not into that, you might not enjoy this game. The controls can also be a little finicky, although that is something the indie team behind Alchemica are said to be working on a fix for.
My thoughts on Alchemica:
