Chimeraland is one of the strangest games you can play on mobile right now

Posted by Campbell Bird on August 2nd, 2022
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

As part of my job here at 148Apps, I often explore games I have no intention of reviewing or otherwise writing about. Part of being able to offer substantial criticism or perspective on mobile games is to understand a lot of what is out there, even if I don't end up turning those experiences into content or critique.

I went into Chimeraland fully expecting to just dip my toe in to understand what it is before moving on, but it didn't take long to realize this game is... remarkable, to say the least. Although it mostly purports to be an open-world survival rpg (which it mostly is, by the way), it also seem dedicated to being as strange and unwieldy as possible. It's a huge download with an almost minute long initial load (on an iPad Pro, even), and across my first hour with the game I had a hard time making sense of much of what was going on. Check out the video above to see what I'm talking about.

Veteran players will already be familiar with just how significant a role Titans play in the strategy RPG, providing significant buffs to troops and dealing tremendous amounts of damage to opponents. Whilst Titan upgrades have been relatively limited so far, with tier, skill, and skin upgrades being the key means of boosting their abilities, the introduction of Titan Equipment now adds an extra component, and even more reason to level up your Titans as much as possible.
