The Top 10 Mobile Games of the Generation

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 8th, 2020

With new consoles coming out soon, it's inevitable for folks to want to look back and determine what were the best games that came out across the current console's lifecycle. This process is commonly referred to as picking the best games of the generation, but that terminology is making less and less sense as the games industry expands beyond console hardware and the systems themselves see half-step upgrades.

As silly as it may be as an exercise, I thought it would be fun to go back and look at "this generation" of mobile titles and pick and rank the ten best. In terms of time period, this takes us back to November 2013, which is actually interesting timing for mobile games. It's a world where Flappy Bird already released but hadn't yet become a cultural phenomenon, and the latest and greatest iPhone was the 5S.

Anyway, enough preambling, let's get to the list. See below for the best mobile games of the generation:

If you haven't picked up this puzzle-RPG, now is the time. As well, the game's save data will export to You Must Build a Boat to unlock special features when that game is released.

You Must Build a Boat - New Title Announced From the Creator of 10000000

Posted by Rob Rich on February 3rd, 2014

When 10000000 first appeared on the App Store, it took many people by surprise. The match-3 RPG runner hybrid thing garnered lots of attention and praise; so much so that there was talk of adding more content. Unfortunately the addition of extra content didn't work out, but we're getting a totally new game instead, titled You Must Build a Boat.

The new game functions in a similar manner to the earlier title, but now you're given choose-your-own-adventure moments that can affect your game. You'll be exploring hostile environments for items and treasures, capturing monsters, recruiting other characters as you attempt to build your boat, and more. You can find the details on what happened with 10000000 here, but the short version is the scope of what was being created got so large it ended up becoming a totally separate entity. Fans and players of the original haven't been forgotten, however. The plan is to put You Must Build a Boat on sale for free during the launch as a sign of appreciation.

No release date for You Must Build a Boat is planned yet, but iOS players will be happy to know that 10000000 will at least be getting an update within the next couple of days that finally adds iPhone 5 support and Game Center achievements.
