  1. 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! Exiled Kingdoms RPG is hardcore, has an old-school feeling to it, and is free (8-12 hours of gameplay) with a single $4 IAP to unlock the full game (108 areas, 40+ quests, the Cleric class unlocked, 110+ hours of gameplay!). There are no "fast-travel" or auto-modes and even on "Normal", the game is satisfyingly difficult. Quite possibly the most immersive old school RPG I've played in a while, and an easy recommendation for any RPG fan! The only "down-side" is also the charm of the game; namely that the graphics aren't "pretty and polished", so if that's a requirement for you, don't bother with Exiled Kingdoms.

  2. 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! Clash Royale rip-off... ehm... I mean... Clash Royale-inspired Blitz Brigade: Rival Tactics is pretty much a military-skinned Clash Royale. Developed by Gameloft, the game is super polished and runs smoothly, but the game doesn't bring anything new to the table. On the positive side, however, you DO get premium currency for free from completing missions. There's a 40 mb additional download after installing the game.

  3. 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! Dark gothic-styled 2D action fighter with no stamina system and joystick (movement) & 3-button controls (attack, dodge, jump) with lots of combo-attacks. The game has awesome skill animations, which feel amazing to use, and the in-app purchases aren't being pushed that much in-game. My main "complaint" would be that getting enough of the items used for crafting weapons takes quite a bit, and the game can thus feel a bit grindy.

  4. 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! 8-bit styled indie RPG where the goal is to survive as many waves of increasingly difficult enemies as you can while running around on a tiny pillar, collecting points and killing enemies to upgrade your character. Controls are simple and work really well, and while really challenging ,the game is a lot of fun! Monetization happens through rarely-appearing 5-seconds skippable video ads, which I didn't like, but any in-app purchase removes all ads and unlocks the full game ($3).

  5. 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! Simple but entertaining endless runner where you throw bombs to destroy obstacles ahead of you and to jump. You have a limited amount of bombs, though, which then re-generated over time as you move forward. My only complaint is the 5-seconds skippable ads, which are removed by buying any in-app purchase, though. This is a far cry from most games included on this list, but I had to include the game because the graphic style is so wacky and fun and I actually have fun playing the game My thoughts on Dyna Knight: Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=zombie.survival.craft.z&hl=en iOS: Soon!

  6. 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! Fun but stressful "casual" game where you answer simple "yes or no" questions really fast! Example; the category could be "Fruit", and a question would be "Is a car a fruit", once you answer no, a new "thing" (the car in the example) appears, but the question remains the same (is this a fruit?). As you go on, the timer starts going down faster and faster, meaning you have to make up your mind quicker and quicker. There's 11 different categories in the full game. Monetization-wise you're forced to watch an ad after dying 3 times with less than 10 points, so I'd recommend primarily going in if you can put out the $3 for the full game.

Be sure to share your favorite mobile game with the rest of us in the comments below! Crafting, survival (hunger, thirst etc.), and exploration; yep. But zombies? Nope! Ankora is an artistically beautiful and unique survival adventure game that monetizes rather lightly, with only a few in-game purchases and incentivized ads. BOth in terms of graphics and gameplay, it is definitely one of the most unique survival games I've played on mobile.

Be sure to share your favorite mobile game with the rest of us in the comments below! Don't let the name fool ya'; MOBA Duels isn't actually a moba. Instead, the game mixes Clash Royale-like card-based gameplay with heroes (cards) based on typical MOBA classes and skills. Chests are unlocked over time (like Clash Royale), and can be bought for premium currency too, which is acquired through completing quests and IAPs. Gold, which is used to upgrade heroes and skills is a scarce resources right from the start, and although the gameplay is rather fun, the game thus feels a bit pay2win.

  9. 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! A unique physics-based adventure game where you swing your way around a cave, avoiding obstacles, by attaching roots to walls. 135 levels with no stamina system and instantly-skippable ads that are removed by any in-app purchase. Worth mentioning is the indie developer's stance AGAINST monitoring players and collecting data, which means the game won't ask any special permissions. We should all really appreciate that.

  10. 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! Is it an RPG? Is it an adventurer? No, it's a gacha! Team Z has a very light and humoristic art-style and feel, although it in many ways is a traditional gacha game, where you get random heroes from "cubes", upgrade and evolve said heroes by sacrificing useless heroes and so on. However, the game pushes its in-app purchases quite a bit, there IS an energy system, which will last you around 30-40 minutes of actual play-time in the early game, and the game forces you to go back and grind older levels after chapter 2, mission 2 where you get stuck.

  11. 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! A silly indie game based on the Google Chrome "no internet connection" endless runner dino game. Very small game that you're probably not gonna play for long, but I have found myself playing it in-between the larger RPG / Strategy games I play and having some fun with it for a few minutes at a time. Monetization is through ads, which luckily can be closed immediately (no 5-sec waiting).

Be sure to share your favorite mobile game with the rest of us in the comments below! Great controls, lots of planes to unlock, squadrons (guilds), actual 4v4 real-time online pvp dogfighting battles, and fast match-making; War Wings by Tencent and Miniclip has definitely got a lot going for it! The gameplay is fun and intense and the game is super polished. Although there are no energy systems and no wait-times for upgrades (a BIG plus in my book!), the game does push its in-app purchases quite a bit, with premium accounts and one-time use boosters (which, to be fair, can be bought for non-premium currency too!).

  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! A super slow-paced WWII strategy PVP game where matches last for 3 days at a time. During each match, you build your base and troops in an attempt to control the entire map. Moving troops, attacking, and building your base takes a long time, and this is the type of game you'll find yourself micro-managing all throughout the day. The game has a ton of notifications, and pushes its in-app purchases quite a bit, but at the same time, the game was rather fun to play, and there's a lot to dive into if you really want to get into it.

  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! Online Battleship game, SailCraft plays like a mix between the core gameplay of traditional board-game Battleship, mixed with mobile elements from Clash Royale, such as cards, upgrades, and chests. The game was surprisingly fun to play, and the monetizaiton feels alright for the time being. Naturally, there are also quests to complete and guilds to join. A really polished game (visually, and in terms of the gameplay) that I can easily recommend with the one caveat that it could turn pay2win at any time the developer wishes.

  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! In Parallyzed, you control two characters at the same time, running in the same direction on two different floors. Tapping on the left side of the screen makes both characters jump, tapping on the right side makes them switch position. The goal is then to complete a bunch of levels with obstacles along the way. The game is fun, but so frustratingly difficult that I could barely complete the video about this game (don't watch it, trust me :p). In terms of monetization, the first part of the game is free (with 5-second video ads), after which you have to unlock the full (and ad-free) version for $1.
