  1. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, documenting my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far. A visually stunning auto-run side-scrolling platformer (just like Rayman: Jungle Run) with great humor, a high difficulty level, awesome slow-mo explosions, and insane weapons. There are no annoying forced ads (only incentivized ads to get double gold after each run), and the in-app purchases are never needed. Honestly, I feel like this has game-of-the-year potential - at least for its genre!

Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far. Using your thumbs, you move each side of a red line up and down, on which our slime-like character slides back and forth, as you attempt to avoid red rectangles and collect orange triangles. Simple, right? No! Just Slide is a super difficult arcade game with a great visual style, no monetization apart from incentivized video ads (used to unlock new character skins), and and normal mode, boss battles, as well as an endless mode. The game's fun and challenging and definitely worth a try.

  3. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, documenting my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far. A beautiful 8-bit point-and-click adventure indie game where we are tasked by a witch to explore the island we live on until we find her stolen urn, promising us death if we don't recover it before 4 a.m. With 7 different endings to the story, there's plenty of replayability, and a monetization that allows us to uncover a new clue by watching an ad. I never really enjoyed point-and-click adventure games, but this one had me hooked!

Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far. Remember how in the Warcraft 3 Tower Defense maps, you could place your towers and walls where ever you wanted instead of on fixed locations? That's what's unique about indie TD Geometry Defense: Infinite. Well, that, and of course the active abilities (skills) and permanent tower upgrades through the no-wait-time research lab (ahh, the beauty of indie games ❤️). Monetization happens through IAPs that allows us to buy either a permanent research-point doubler, or a premium currency, which can be exchanged for research points if you want to upgrade the towers faster.

  5. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, documenting my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far. A TEKKEN mobile game? Awesome! Wait... what are these chests, gacha elements, and asynchronous PVP doing in this game? Oh, I see how it is. TEKKEN is a huge disappointment. The game lags in certain menus (on a S8+, mind you!), is very P2W and nearly even pay2play with persistent HP losses across matches, meaning we have to use healing potions, which conveniently are sold for premium currency. The combat scenes are neat, though, and although the controls are simple, I found it fun to play, although rather repetitive. But until properly optimized, I'd stay with MARVEL Contest of Champions, as it's nearly the same game - just better optimized.

  6. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, documenting my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far. Super DD is a platformer with no chests, wait-times, or upgrades. Ahhh, how relaxing. It's just a plain good old puzzle platformer with simple and great controls that you can finish in a few hours. My only minor complaint is that there isn't a way to disable the occasional ads through single IAP. I found the game decently challenging and had a great time with it.

  7. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, documenting my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far. The mobile version beta of Maple Story ended Tuesday, but I had a chance to play it for a few days. And oh wow is there a lot to say about this game! The short version is that at a whopping 2GB size, it's a fully-fledged 60 frames per second 2D platformer MMORPG, with guilds, raids, auto systems (it's 2018 after all), and a huge map. The game looks stunning and runs smooth as butter. Being a Nexon game, it is sadly very monetized, with several unfair advantages available through IAPs, such as auto battle (you get 2 hours per day for free). Despite this, I could see this game being great fun to play with a couple of friends in a guild, as the raids and instances seem decently interesting.

  8. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, documenting my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far. An 8-player top-down PVP action game with a core gameplay that draws inspiration from ".IO" games; you join a server, run around with a small army that grows stronger and larger as you take over campsites, which in turn enables you to defeat other players. Whenever you get bored, you leave the server, upgrade your skills, and jump back in. The game's made by Snipers vs Thieves creator, PlayStack, so I had high hopes, but sadly there are LOTS of waiting and P2W elements, which ruin the game from a competitive angle. However, I could definitely see playing this game with up to 7 friends (you can create your own servers) being a ton of fun, which is why I decided to include it here!

Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far. Old can still be gold, right? Not Golf hasn't been updated since 2016, but I really love this golf game - so I had to include it this week. What makes "Not Golf" unique is the fact that you can shoot the ball again mid-air if you want to, and the many game modes included, which makes for a ton of content in such a small game! Lastly, with no forced ads, and a $2 IAP to unlock all game modes and "ball" (character) customizations, you can't really go wrong with this one My thoughts on Not Golf: Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ronancasey.notgolf&hl=en iOS: Not yet 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
  10. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, documenting my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far. Don't let the graphics fool ya', Wizard's Wheel: ReRolled is an indie idle RPG with more depth than most mobile games can only hope to achieve. There's buildings to buy, loot to find, weapons to upgrade, dragons to slay, heroes to hire, and of course time to warp (makes you restart from zero with some advantages), as you experience the game and world slowly expanding. The game monetizes through a few IAPs going up to $10, and incentivized ads, which aren't pushed heavily either. Although I was a bit intimidated by the sheer complexity of the game at first, I've only come to love it more and more the more I play - it's close to everything I'd expect from a great indie game!

  11. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, documenting my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far. Techno Strike is an Overwatch-like Mech shooter that runs really smoothly, has aim sensitivity options that are customizable on a per-hero level, and free hero rotations (like in MOBAs). HOWEVER, some weapons can be acquired only through premium currency, and you'll be fighting against bots in the non-league "quick matches", and there are only US and Asian servers, which leaves out EU players. Honestly, the game is good is good fun and I'm impressed by the graphics and gameplay, but the monetization ruins it for me.

  12. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, documenting my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far. Gacha RPG Final Heroes has some great app store reviews, but sadly enforces quite a few P2W elements, such as VIP and Energy systems, and has a - at best- stale PVP system. HOWEVER; playing the game, I found myself both excited and scared by how good the game is at triggering all the right areas in my brain, providing me with an instant-gratification overload of free gems, powerful items, skills and more. To be fair, the game is very generous with providing premium currency for free (at least $60+ worth of it), and at this rate, you'll definitely be getting 2 times 10 hero pulls for free. I think some can have fun with this game, but I would strongly suggest only diving into it if you either have money to spend or know these types of games.

Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far. MilkChoco is a unique and lightweight indie third-person 4 vs 4 shooter with a variety of game-modes (Deathmatch, Escort etc.) played on small maps. The UI is customizable, there's both auto-shooting and manual shooting, matchmaking takes seconds, and all weapons can be acquired through in-game currency. Honestly, this is one of the more fun casual shooters I've played on mobile in a long time!

  14. I'm a man on a Mobile Gaming Quest (MGQ) to play a new mobile game every day, documenting my first impressions here and on YouTube. Below is the latest episode. Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far. Escape the growing number of police vehicles as long as you can, picking up power-ups, destroying other cars, completing missions, and finding secret areas in each map. Then get caught and repeat. That's Reckless Getaway 2 for ya'. There are several maps and a bunch of cars to unlock, the play-sessions are short (30-120 seconds for the most part), and there are no forced ads - which is sadly surprisingly rare for endless games like this one. Overall one of the more enjoyable endless games I've played in quite some time!

Here's a quick overview of all games I've covered so far. Controller support, 60 FPS and a relaxed monetization - top-down twin stick mutant-shooter "Xenowerk" by Space Marshals developer Pixelbite has a lot going for it! The game's fun and has a neat atmosphere, and although the controls take a few minutes to get used to, the game's highly optimized, meaning it should be able to run smoothly on most devices.
