While it can sometimes seem like we are drowning in a sea of battle royale games, few struggle to actually deliver the kind of fun and frantic experience you’d expect from a refined entry in the genre. Well step aside from those other games because Munchkin.io continues to go from strength to strength, by adding a new character class and also being named by Google as one of the best indie games of the year and being globally featured in the Google Play Store starting from today.
To get anyone unfamiliar with Meerkatgames’ take of real-time battle royale genre, Munchkin.io is thought of as the lighter alternative to Fortnite and PUBG. The game prides itself on being lighter and more accessible than most other you’ll see, featuring an eclectic cast of character classes that can level up, learn new skills, and complete unique quests for rewards.
If you’re an RTS player that’s constantly underwhelmed by most genre entries on mobile, or sick of putting up with stingy F2P models and cheaters, Rift of Raigard is the base building game for you. Developed by a team of creators who are equally annoyed, the game is now in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign which could benefit from your backing. Here’s what’s in store if you do.
Set in a fantasy world that’s being ravaged by a war between three factions, players will need to pick a side – whether it’s the Folklords, Gremlochs, or Coalites – and test their strategic chops to bring balance back to a land devastated by chaos. Rift of Raigard features a wholly original, interwoven story that will see you venture through multiple exotic landscapes in any one of the game’s three explorable continents.
Rift of Raigard will encourage you to personalize your central hero, ground troops, and base thanks to the large number of customisation options. All three facets mentioned can be personalised with a slew of in-game skins, meaning you’ll be spurred to protect your armaments in the battle to hold back enemies strategically in real-time. The best Rift of Raigard players will find themselves vying for a space at the top of the leader board.
Should the game reach its funding goal, Rift of Raigard will also include a dedicated guild system that lets players team up, sponsored events and leagues, alongside what the developer Dun Rite Games is teasing as “game modes never before seen in this genre.”
The good news is that you can also be part of this adventure. Be sure to visit the game’s Kickstarter page to show your support, for a mobile-first RTS game that wants to be fun and accessible for all while clamping down on cheaters.

Across the generations, the Langrisser series has done battle with Fire Emblem for control of the tactical RPG throne, and this war is about to spill over into the mobile arena.
Almost two years on from the debut of Fire Emblem Heroes on iOS and Android, developer Zlongame has taken the fight to the Nintendo franchise with the release of Langrisser Mobile in closed beta following a successful soft launch in China during the summer.
The game marks the mobile debut of this tactical RPG titan and it’s pulled out all of the stops in a bid to trump its rival on touchscreen devices. Here are five ways it succeeds…
If it’s a classic Shin Megami Tensei for mobile that you seek, Shin Megami Tensei Liberation Dx2 absolutely delivers. A post-apocalyptic RPG that you can take anywhere, we here at 148Apps have quite enjoyed our time collecting demons, building a powerful party, and working our way through the game’s story.
The Shin Megami Tensei has never gone light on difficulty, and Shin Megami Tensei Liberation Dx2 is no exception. If you’re a newcomer to the series looking to jump in head first, we have a few helpful tips and tricks to get you started.
Hello Hero Epic Battle is proving itself to be the next big thing in mobile RPGs, with over 100 collectible heroes (and some real life character toys, too!), a colourful 3D world to explore, and plenty of opportunities to test your mettle in the heat of battle.
The game is quite expansive, with Heroes and equipment to upgrade and dungeons to explore. Luckily we’re here to ensure you get off to a good start. Here are five tips to help you on your journey.
Explore the game’s many modes
Hello Hero Epic Battle boasts a large number of gameplay modes, from character management, to single player adventures, to multiplayer competitions and events. Explore the game’s vibrant world in single-player Adventure mode, where you’ll traverse seven unique regions and unravel the game’s story. The game’s Ranking modes offer multiplayer challenges, from epic Boss fights to high stakes PvE battles in Conquest and Battlefield modes.
Build a team that will cover your bases
You’ll find that every Hero in Hello Hero Epic Battle falls into one of four classes. You’ll want to make sure your party features a few different classes to ensure you can meet every challenge head on. Defense characters are your tanks, with impressive physical and magical defense and high health. Melee/Ranged Attack Heroes deal out strong physical and magical damage from afar, but have low health. Melee/Ranged Hybrid characters have close range physical attacks and can put out ranged magical attacks. And lastly, Support characters don’t have much by way of physical or magical attack skills, but they are essential to healing the rest of your party when they take damage.
After the success of the original Soul Seeker, South Korean developer Clegames has crafted a second, gacha-packed instalment. Expect more anime-style characters, more Soul searching and more strategic battling. To get you Soul-Seeker ready, read our quick starter guide.
The story so far...
Five gods built the world of Hermes, but it didn't take long before they were squabbling with each other ownership. After a war between them nearly frazzled the land to bits, the gods thought it wise to lock themselves in magical objects called Soul Stones, where they could do no more harm. Unfortunately, their minion factions continued the fight. They began seeking the Soul Stones in an effort to wield godly powers against their rivals, at the risk of destroying Hermes in the process. Up pops the Albion Knights, dedicated to finding and destroying the Soul Stones to keep the world safe. And who should be within the order's ranks but you, ready to save the day.

Well known classic RPG “Shin Megami Tensei” franchise originally created by Atlus, can now be played throughout iOS and Android. Created by Sega, “Shin Megami Tensei” has spawned a mobile-centric installment in the shape of “Shin Megami Tensei: liberation Dx2.”
JRPG fans may already be familiar with the dark world of Shin Megami Tensei. It's a place where demons from another realm lurk around every corner, and where tough heroes have to fight, capture and assemble them into a party. 26 years since the franchise began, Shin Megami Tensei Liberation Dx2 adds another chapter to the story, this time on mobile. If you haven't given it a go yet, here are three reasons why we think you should.
BRIX! Block Blast is the latest in a long line of mobile puzzlers, but Genera Games’ new iOS and Android offering is by no means more of the same.
The game is a unique mash-up of old and new. It takes the classic drop elements from Tetris and combines them with the colour-matching gameplay found in contemporary mobile puzzle titles, and the result is a system the developer has dubbed ‘drop & match’.
With this mechanic on their side, players can combine blocks, rack up extra points and earn boosters that will blast them through to the next level.
Developer GameSpire has turned its attention from gunships to warships in its latest mobile release. With Warships Universe: Naval Battle, you get to play at being an admiral in the navy, and pit your vessel against other players in online 6-vs-6 skirmishes.
You have at your disposal a wide range of historical vessels belonging to the various factions involved in World War I and II. There's the famous German battleship Bismarck, the mighty Yamato of the Japanese navy, the USS Arizona and many more. Not just battleships, either - you've got cruisers, destroyers and aircraft carriers at your fingertips.
Move over, Clash of Clans. Step aside, Forge of Empires - there’s a new mobile base-builder in town, and Mad Rocket: Fog of War isn’t afraid to put its own stamp on the genre.
Published by Four Thirty Three, the game has just launched on iOS and Android off the back of a successful soft launch, during which player feedback was positive.
Mad Rocket is all about building and destruction, but it’s the Fog of War itself which really differentiates it from the competition. The game plays out on a tile-based map and enemy bases are completely shrouded in fog, which adds an extra layer of strategy.
Battle royale has been going through a renaissance in the mobile space in the recent year, but the latest addition to this increasingly-crowded genre aims to offer something different to the market leaders.
Developed by Meerkatgames, Munchkin.io is an accessible take on this popular concept. You still get to take part in chaotic, multiplayer contests and murder random strangers, but this time it’s with cutesy characters, fantasy themes and virtually no learning curve.
The game has been designed from the ground up with tablets and smartphones in mind, and here are five reasons why it’s worthy of a place on your home screen.
The Construction Simulator series has proven itself quite capable of replicating the experience of being a heavy machinery operator. Always striving to improve this experience, astragon Entertainment is taking the series to a new setting; also adding new features and new vehicles for the release of Construction Simulator 3 early next year.
Construction Simulator 3 yet again places you in the role of a small construction company owner looking to grow their business by way of jobs, contracts, and building tasks to be the biggest contractor in town. This time you’ll do so within the scenic beauty of Europe, having the chance to get behind the wheel of over numerous officially licensed construction vehicles and machines.
