Personal Information

  1. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, and document my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Run, swipe, die. Rinse and repeat. Seriously, Glitch Dash looks gorgeous but might just be the most difficult arcade game I've played on mobile (well, apart from Flappy Bird). Avoiding the swinging hammers and laser beams is pure torture, but extremely satisfying when you finally complete each level. The game's currently in beta, but I decided to include it as I was having a lot of fun with it, and I figured some of you might want to signup for the beta. In terms of monetization, you start out with ten lives, which you'll quickly burn through, and get 10 new lives after 120 seconds, or immediately by watching an ad. Luckily, we can also remove the life system entirely through a $2 IAP.

  2. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, and document my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Move units and conquer strategic points on a board, and instantly switch into a FPS mode when the actual battles have to be fought. Yes, Noblemen 1896 is essentially Battlefield 1 with more strategic elements. Although there are several one-time use items acquired through premium currency, the game is very generous with handing out premium currency throughout the campaign, and the monetization never hindered my enjoyment of the game. If you like both strategy games and shooters, this one is a must try!

  3. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, and document my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. A decently difficult 20-level action platformer set in a steampunk universe with a nice story, plenty of weapons and equipment to acquire, and a simple $5 IAP to unlock all equipment immediately. Sounds great, and it is, BUT the game shows 15-seconds FORCED video ads every so often without any option to disable these through an IAP. For that reason, I'm not giving this game a glowing recommendation at this point, although I actually had fun playing it.

  4. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, and document my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. A fun action platformer roguelike with interesting upgrades (for weapon, health etc.), controller support, and, of course, permadeath (it is a roguelike, after all). Had a lot of fun with this one, and although the developers DO sell premium currency in-game, you don't need it at all unless you want to make the game easier for yourself, and ads can be skipped immediately or removed through a $3 IAP.

  5. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, and document my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. "Wrassling" indie developer Colin Lane's attempt at a 2D 8-bit ridiculous boxing game where your only way of moving back and forth is to punch and block! It's as ridiculous as it sounds, and although I do feel some character customization would do the game justice, it's a fun game (to rage at), and the only monetization is through incentivized video ads.

  6. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, and document my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Today, we take Rules of Survival, Survivor Royale, and Knives Out for a spin to answer the ultimate question; which one is the BEST Battle Royale game for Android & iOS?

  7. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, and document my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Take one of the worlds most played mobile games; Snake, and mix it with the 3D world and style of Super Mario N64 and you have Jewel Snake. Moving around in the 3D world feels great, and the game's challenging enough to be fun, with a pretty clever level design (lots of hidden gems - love it!). The game monetizes through a single $1 to unlock all levels and remove the banner ads.

  8. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, and document my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Knives out is the last of the three PUBG-like "Battle Royale" games that NetEase released recently. The game only has Asian servers at the moment, but I noticed very little latency, if any while playing from Europe. Of the three games, Knives Out seems to be the most fully developed, with promises of high frame rates, although its graphics aren't on par with Rules of Survival. There's no monetization yet, and even when implemented, it seems it'll focus on cosmetics only. So far, I've still had the best experience in Rules of Survival, although the differences are minimal.

  9. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, and document my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. A level-based side-scrolling "runner" where you control a girl riding on a dragon, wreaking havoc in zombie-infested cities to retrieve the pieces needed to create a time machine and go back in time to prevent the zombie apocalypse (yes, seriously). The game's fun and reminds me of "Death Worm", but getting enough gold to upgrade your dragon is a boring grind, which is slowed down so that the developer can sell gold through IAPs. Apart from that, there's a single $2 to remove all ads from the game, which is nice.

  10. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, and document my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Shadow Fight 3 is visually stunning, plays smoothly, and has an interesting gear system, but doesn't have real-time PVP, and progressing in the game takes forever due to a too difficult campaign and chests with long wait-times. The worst part, however, is that the game is pay 2 win. Even if you wanted, you'd have a hard time grinding your way to the best gear, with "booster packs" that include legendary equipment being sold for $35 PER PACK in-game! The game has lots of potential, but with the current monetization setup, it is close to unplayable, which is something I say VERY rarely My thoughts on Shadow Fight 3: Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nekki.shadowfight3&hl=en iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/shadow-fight-3/id964827011?mt=8 Subscribe on YouTube for more commentaries: https://goo.gl/xKhGjh Or join me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mobilegamefan/ Or Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nimblethoryt/ Or Twitter: https://twitter.com/nimblethor
  11. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, and document my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. A neat top-down offline (singleplayer) and online (4-player PVP) racer that is currently in alpha. The game monetizes through selling parts needed to unlock new cars, although these are also gained through simply playing. Additionally, opening PVP chests requires a key, of which we can store 5 at a time. When we're out of keys, we have to wait, watch an ad, or of course buy more keys. While the monetization sounds strict, it is nicely implemented and didn't feel obtrusive to the gameplay experience.

  12. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, and document my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. A real-time multiplayer "Worms"-like turn-based shooting game with a room-based matchmaking meaning you get to have a say in who you're matched against (finally!). The monetization seems on the heavy side, though, with most things acquirable through IAP, such as new vehicles etc. My thoughts on GunGun Online: Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vgames.gungunonline&hl=en iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gungun-online-shooting-game/id1073166827?mt=8 Subscribe on YouTube for more commentaries: https://goo.gl/xKhGjh Or join me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mobilegamefan/ Or Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nimblethoryt/ Or Twitter: https://twitter.com/nimblethor
  13. 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! Mighty Battles is a Clash Royale-like game in a military setting (that's literally it; nothing too new). The game's fun and runs smoothly, but the pay2win elements are evident right from the beginning, and I honestly feel they should be adjusted slightly. With all that said, though, I still recommend checking it out if you enjoy landscape-mode games and are looking for a Clash Royale alternative!

  14. 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! If Happy Wheels was a mobile game and had online multiplayer, you'd pretty much have Happy Racing. It's a fun singleplayer and online + local multiplayer gory ragdoll physics racer from the developers of Bowmasters. There are plenty of hilarious characters to unlock, and even without paying, you'll quickly unlock many of them, and a $4 IAP removes all ads, of which there otherwise are a few 5-second skippable ones.

  15. 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! Rules of Survival is the second Battle Royale game from NetEase, Survivor Royale being the first, and the two games are almost identical. The main differences are that Rules of Survival has EU servers (as well as US and Asian), and that the game has less of a "military" setting. With 120-player real-time battles on a huge map, there was a bit of lag when deploying from the plane, but other than that, the game played rather smoothly. There's no monetization yet, but I expect lootboxes will be sold for premium currency. So far, I'd recommend Rules of Survival over Survivor Royale!
