The 5 Best Mobile Puzzle RPGs

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 24th, 2022

RPGs with puzzle mechanics feel like the perfect fit for mobile. There’s something about a game that moves at a gentile pace while having a somewhat predictable-yet-challenging set of mechanics that can morph as you progress through some kind of grand adventure that feels right at home in your pocket.

With the recent release of Hero Emblems II, I thought it’d be good to revisit some of the absolute best puzzle RPGs that iOS has to offer, just in case you missed out on some of these incredible titles.

The Best Mobile Games for Traveling

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 27th, 2018

As mobile devices have gotten more and more capable, we’ve seen an influx of console ports and increasingly more complicated mobile games coming to the App Store. Many of these games are amazingly convenient to have on your phone or tablet, but few of them feel like games you can play while you are actually mobile—that is, when you are on the go and/or traveling. With that in mind, check out these recommendations for some of the best mobile games that you can truly play anywhere.

A Planet of Mine

Looking for a hardcore strategy game with tons of replayability and no data connection requirements that plays beautifully in portrait mode? Look no further than Tuesday Quest’s A Planet of Mine. What looks like a simple clicker is actually a real-time strategy game where you mine planets for resources in order to explore new worlds, encounter new species, and crush any enemies that stand in your way.

Even though the game moves in real-time, its pace is slow enough that it’s extremely easy to jump into an out of at a moment’s notice. As an added bonus, it’s not a graphically intensive game, so you can spend hours with the game without needing to recharge your phone.

While I'd love to just gush about 50 or so awesome games I've played - on my various mobile devices alone - I've narrowed it down to just four. Yes, just four.

Without further ado, read on to discover more about, not only my favourite mobile game of 2015, but a few honourable mentions as well.

Card Crawl, the Mini Deck Building Game, is Coming Soon

Posted by Jessica Fisher on February 27th, 2015

Tinytouchtales and Mexer have announced their new game, Card Crawl.

The game uses a mix of solitaire and deck-building mechanics to create a dungeon crawl. You'll have 5 ability cards to work with as you explore a 54 card dungeon while slaying monsters, collecting gold, and finding helpful items. Gold can be used to buy better ability cards to give you more options when designing your tactics. Each game takes no more than 2-3 minutes, which means you can play it on the go.

Card Crawl will be $1.99 on the App Store when it's released on March 12.
