From Final Fantasy to Chaos Rings, Japanese roleplaying games have found a large and loyal fanbase on mobile devices. If you’re seeking a more under-the-radar JRPG to escape into, Lionsfilm’s Cryptract could be the one. The game has been around since 2015, but its reach has mainly stayed within its homeland of Japan, where it’s developed one of the largest playerbases in mobile gaming.
In Cryptract, you’re tasked with saving the Guilsanian Empire against the threat of the Mystical Beasts — monsters hell-bent on causing chaos. With the heroes you gather through gacha-style summoning, you’ve got to form a powerful questing party. Head out on missions to slay beasts and save the day, learning more about the in-game universe along the way.
Joy Brick's Hidden Survivor is an interesting title of two halves: part story-focused survival experience, part intense hide-and-seek multiplayer game. Both elements come together to form a compellingly strange and enjoyable whole.
The hide-and-seek arena battles task you with scouring your surroundings for useful items. Knowing when to use these items is key to remaining successful and earning as many points as possible.
The twist is that you can disguise yourself as any object in the level, hopefully allowing you to go unnoticed when one of your rivals becomes the player-hunting 'Seeker'. As the match progresses, certain areas of the level will grow dangerous to linger in, causing you damage over time.
Looking for a fight? Brawl Quest captures all the fun of retro arcade beat-‘em-ups, but chucks in a more modern, cartoonish style and some wacky characters to boot. Just released by indie developer ThinkBIT, the game features a roster of playable fighters with which to clean the steets of bad guys and bosses in over 50 stages.
These helpful tips will ensure you get the most out of your brawls, whether you want to maximise your coin count or recruit some pets pronto.
• Remember your fighter types: Brawl Quest features rock-paper-scissors fighter types, with each type having either a 15% damage advantage or disadvantage against another type. Before you enter a stage, check the suggested fighter type to send in based on the sort of thugs awaiting you
• Log in daily: After completing area 2-1, you’ll unlock daily quests. These are a quick and easy way to gain additional gold coins and gems, which can be used to level up and unlock new content, including pets (more on them below). Even just logging into Brawl Quest regularly gets you some freebies; the premium shop has a free loot box given away to all players daily, providing you’re there to collect it
• Get your paws on pets: Pets act as a sort of living talisman, imparting boosts to your fighters’ stats. Aim to get through area 2-6 as fast as you can to begin unlocking your own animal companions. We recommend saving up 200 gems to unlock a third pet slot
• Dispatch your brawlers: Once you’ve completed area 2-10, you can start sending brawlers out on quests to bring back loot. Not all dispatches will be successful, but you can improve your brawlers’ chances by paying attention to their fighter type and level.
• Top up your energy: If you’ve run out of energy, spend some coins at the vending machine for more, as well as other useful items for levelling up.
Put our advice into action and let those fists fly. Brawl Quest is out now for free on Android and iOS (coming out mid-February).

Black Desert Mobile, Pearl Abyss' megahit fantasy MMO, has had an incredible first month, with a ton of post-launch content already available for players to sink their teeth into.

With her primary weapon being an Amulet and secondary weapon being a Talisman, the Sorceress is a skilled magic user who is deadly in both ranged and up-close encounters.

The primary way that is done it’s done by introducing three fresh special tribes to play as, each of which shake up your abilities to help you “rule the world” quicker.
Whether you’re a The Battle of Polytopia pro or a newcomer just diving in for the first time, here’s everything worth knowing about the game’s three special tribes.
iPads are awesome. We all know this. But an iPad all on its own can sometimes just feel like a big, unwieldy phone that sits in some corner, only to be dusted off when you need a way to watch Netflix on a flight.
It doesn’t have to be this way, though. With a little additional investment, you can kit out your tablet so that it can serve as your primary computer both for productivity and entertainment purposes.
How do I know this? Well, I’ve been an iPad owner for years, and have written the vast majority of everything I’ve ever posted to this site using one. With all of this in mind, I’ve put together a handy little guide on things to pick up (or skip) when looking to make your iPad the absolute best it can be for everything.
For the purposes of this guide, I’ll be speaking about items generally, as your wants and needs around said items might shift depending on which model of iPad you have. I’ll also be sharing my personal favorite picks, but those are all based on how well they work with an iPad Pro 11 (2018), as it's my current iPad of choice.
Alter Ego is a different kind of clicker for iOS and Android, offering a surprising and moving story, excellent writing, and an interesting focus on personality tests.

The best escape-the-room games don’t just test your creative problem-solving skills – they look great, too.

When Nova Dune’s spaceship picks up a mysterious distress signal, her curiosity gets the better of her.

Get ready for an epic adventure with Pearl Abyss' visually stunning Black Desert Mobile, available now for iOS and Android
Following a hugely successful pre-registration campaign, Pearl Abyss' much-hyped MMORPG, Black Desert Mobile, has finally arrived for iOS and Android. With some of the most impressive visuals on mobile, a vast open world to explore, an in-depth character creator, and some real storytelling chops, it's easy to see why over 4.5 million players have pre-registered to get involved in this fantasy epic asap.
You'll begin your adventure by picking one of five classes: Warrior, Witch, Ranger, Giant, or Valkyrie. As you might expect, they all play very differently, boasting their own skills, stats, and general play style. To really make your avatar unique to you, Black Desert Mobile offers one of the most extensive character creators we've seen in a game to date, allowing you to tweak every element of your hero's appearance down to the tiniest of details. Once you've created your perfect character, you'll begin your adventure in the game's stunning open world.
Pearl Abyss' stunning open-world MMORPG, Black Desert Mobile, is set to launch for iOS and Android on December 11th at 12 AM PST (8 AM UTC). However, those looking to get in early and test out the in-depth character customisation will be able to pre-download the game from today.
One advantage of doing so is that it'll allow you to get in early and select your preferred Family Name. If you're unfamiliar with Black Desert, this is the title that displays above your character for your fellow players to see.
Old is the new ‘new’, if the popularity of retro games is anything to go by, and nostalgia junkies now have one more reason to get excited. OutOfTheBit studio has just launched a top-down racing game that pays homage to those arcade favourites of the 1980s and ‘90s. Super Arcade Racing stays true to the beloved games which inspired it, combining simple controls, hand-drawn pixel art and pancake-flat 2D tracks to race around. There’s even a cracking synth soundtrack.
The game’s single player is essentially its story mode. You control Mick, our reluctant hero dragged into the world of illegal street racing to find out what happened to his brother. As you topple racing rivals across the 60 levels, you’ll edge ever closer to revealing the underground organisation up to no good — and saving your sibling.
For most of us playing a mobile game is just a harmless way to kill some time, fight boredom or get a nice quick adrenaline fix. We don’t expect this to have any influence whatsoever on any other creature in the world.
Well this is not the case if you choose Sea Turtle Rescue. Recently released by indie outfit Simberon, Sea Turtle Rescue is intended to help real life sea turtles, with its Ottawa-based developer donating 10% of all profits from the game to the Canadian Sea Turtle Network – a charitable organization from Nova Scotia which helps conserve endangered sea turtles in Canadian waters and world-wide.
Sea Turtle Rescue is a tile-based puzzle game where you match numerical sequences to create paths for baby turtles to reach the sea. From there on, your efforts will be focused on avoiding different threats on the beach as you move your hatchling along the 12 different levels.
Figment: Journey Into the Mind is the latest game from Bedtime Digital Games, a company with a love for the surreal and dream-like settings. Figment is no different and has puzzles designed around the concept of the left and right sides of the brain.
