It is hard to escape games these days that choose to forgo great detail in the visuals department, for a more retro look. The games are everywhere in the Play Store. are everywhere. Sometimes you come across one that is great to play, and at the same time, the pixels look amazing. I am not exactly sure what lures me into the pixels that have been created by the Super Mega Quest team, but I like what they have done!
One of the great things about mobile gaming is that there are a lot of games available. That too, can also be a downside of mobile gaming, because good, fun and quality games are a little bit harder to find. NLABSOFT Inc. located in Seoul, South Korea, has released a game that is fun, with simple controls and gameplay that is challenging at the same time. Jump Warrior is an RPG that will pit you against skeletons and other beasts, but not quite in the way you expect.
Strike Suit Zero is a space sim that is released by Born Ready Games. Being a fan of this genre, it was one I was looking to sink my teeth into, and I went into the game with moderate to high expectation. Let's see how the game actually played.
As fans the world over await the December 18th release of Episode VII with feverish anticipation (myself included), many have turned to the recent onslaught of media offerings to get their interim Star Wars fix. With a slew of new EU novels, multiple Marvel comic books, a new animated series and the blockbuster release of Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars fans have been fed a continuous stream of Star Wars content over the past year. But what of those Star Wars fans that are more inclined to consume content on their mobile devices? Electronic Arts sought to leave no stone un-turned in that regard, but after having spent some time with their recent mobile “RPG,” Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, I am of the mind that this was a stone best left undisturbed.
There are quite a few fishing games in the Play Store. Most of them haven't really held my attention for long. Mobirix's Fishing Hook is another story. Yes, it is free to play, but don't let that stop you from trying out this game. In short order, take the bait. This game is good. It is fun, free, easy on the eyes and simple to play.
Space Marshals is a dual stick shooter from Pixelbites. The game is a clever hybrid of the old West, and a sci-fi, hi-tech future. Much to my enjoyment, they hit on everything they were going for. The game has a lot going for it, and very little to complain about.
First Touch Games is known for their successful soccer games available for Android devices. Their games have good graphics, easy controls, and are generally quite fun to play. Score! Hero is their latest game. If you enjoy soccer/football, then you will enjoy playing Score! Hero.
Fearless Fantasy is an RPG game, with a few quirks that make it unique. Judging by the name, one might assume that it's a clone of Final Fantasy. While that would seem logical as it is a JRPG with a somewhat similar battle system where units on both sides take turns, and they line up on opposite sides of the screens, in actuality the two games may have more differences than similarities. When I first played the game, I was slightly disappointed by this fact. As I played through the game though, I came to see it for what it was, and appreciate that this game is distinct and unique in its own ways.
Implosion: Never Lose Hope is a hack and slash style game that eqs recently released on Android by Rayark International Limited earlier this year. Their teaser trailer qqsnpretty impressive, so it was one that I had my eye in playing/reviewing for a while now. The game is a mixed bag for sure, so let's jump into the high and low points for this game. Beginning with the low...
Avoid It: A Story of Survival is a game that is aptly titled based on the structure of the game play. However, as a gamer, you should do anything, but avoid this game. It is bold, beautiful, and brutally difficult in some areas. It is well worth the price of admission. Exceptional vertical platformers/runners (rollers in this case) are few and far in between. Avoid It heads to the leader of the pack, due to excellent controls, smart and unique game play, and creativity in art that is fascinating.
Ketchapp puts games out with amazing consistency. They have a pool of game makers that they work with that routinely put out some pretty good games. Generally they are games that you can play quickly, have an easy learning curve, but at times, can be brutally difficult. One thing remains throughout their games though, they are generally fun to play.
