It’s been this way for a while now, but playing Hot Wheels Infinite Loop really highlights a big issue with free-to-play mobile racing games: They suck. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying going for realism, cart racing, or arcade nonsense, they’re all bad, and mostly in the same way.
Another big-name franchise has come to mobile, and it’s (unsurprisingly) pretty bad. Gears POP! follows in the footsteps of Dr. Mario World and The Elder Scrolls: Blades. All are high-profile mobile releases and all actively engender ill will toward mobile gaming by being somewhat boring knock offs of predatory free-to-play games.
Hopefully, with the launch of Apple Arcade, this will be less of a problem. In the meantime though, there are some games out on mobile that might give you what you want from Gears POP! without subjecting you to its clunky gameplay or intensely haunting Funko Pop aesthetics. See below:
Just in time for Easter, AFK Arena launched their first special event. Egg Hunters is all about hunting down ways to collect a new currency (eggs, naturally), and then redeeming them for neat prizes.
While it sounds cool in practice, it's actually probably not all it's cracked up to be. In any case, see below what you can and should expect from this Egg Hunters event so you can make the most of it.
AFK Arena may be a less intense form of a gacha game, but that doesn’t mean it’s totally straightforward. As with other games in this genre, there’s a bevy of systems, modes, currencies, etc. that you’ll want to be familiar with as soon as you start playing, regardless of whether you’ll be engaging with them immediately or not. This is especially true if you don’t plan on spending any money on it.
To help you hit the ground running in AFK Arena, check out these handy tips. All of them are sure to help you get a head start on understanding this fascinating gacha/idle hybrid.
