It's been a meaty year for the App Store and Google Play, with dozens of noteworthy games finding their way onto our devices.

But with 2015 winding down, it's time to reflect on the best of the best. Here's my list.


The best

DRAGON QUEST V

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Released: 2015-01-22 :: Category: Game

$14.99

JRPG fans, don't deny yourself this splendid adventure for a second longer.

Maybe you've already played the Nintendo DS iteration, but even if you have, you should sit down and work through it one more time.

The graphics and soundtrack are wonderful, its story spans across several generations, and you can tame monsters to fight for you.

I'll train a Great Dragon someday. Someday…

The rest

Neo Monsters

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Released: 2015-10-22 :: Category: Game

$0.99

Neo Monstersis inspired byPokémonbutoffers some cool new ideas of its own.

This spiritual sequel to Dragon Island Blue and Hunter Island has some terrific monsters to collect, a big world to explore, and an intriguing story.

It's highly recommended for Pokémonor JRPG fans.

Downwell

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Released: 2015-10-15 :: Category: Game

$2.99

Downwell's stylish visuals and simple, highly addictive gameplay makes it an easy recommendation for fans of action and shooting.

In some ways, it's actually reminiscent of the indie hit Cave Story - though this cave descends forever and ever.

One Button Travel

+ Universal & Apple Watch App - Designed for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch
Released: 2015-11-25 :: Category: Game

$2.99

One Button Travel is an interactive novel about time travel - preventing it, to be exact.

It's a complicated story, but a very interesting one. Events unfold in real time, so it might take you several days to work through it.

Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector

+ Universal & Apple Watch App - Designed for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch
Released: 2014-10-21 :: Category: Game

FREE!

I started playing Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector before it received its official English translation.

Once it sinks its claws into you, you find yourself doing everything you can to make your feline friends comfortable and happy.

They reward you with happy kitty smiles and that's all you need. That's all anyone needs.
