Hey guys it's been a while since I looked out for some of the fun games out there on mobile and wanted to get a thread started on some of the lesser known or newer ones that are good. I tend to play a lot more games on ios because a number of them come out earlier or in the case of some, are available free at certain times however, I believe most if not all of these are also on android. feel free to list what ya'll like too (especially RPGs cuz I like those).
Arcane Soul is a really good Action RPG where you clear stages for gold and items and level up your stats and skills. you can buy stat resets with in game gold as well as a various of special items/buffs to aid you through the stages. The controls are very responsive (kind wish they'd make a 2d MMO like this...)
Guns Girl - School DayZ - This is a high quality anime styled side scrolling shooting game where you have to make it through hordes of cute undead zombie girls. The RPG elements in this game are pretty solid though and while there is an energy system, it's not super restricting like most games.
Master of Craft is a micromanaging game where you basically just craft materials to sell and make money. You have troops that can partake in automated battles to gather some rarer componets as well.
Survival Island is a 2d game where you play as a person who has to survive on an island and figure out how to get off. You will study recipes (learned in real time by selecting random items to learn how to make the item, choosing the right materials makes you learn it faster).
Rebirth of Fortune 2 is a Tactical Based game that is pretty challenging at times and has a number of interesting units to unlock. there's also hundreds of battles to go through.
SpellFall is a Matching/RPG hybrid game that is fairly new and is pretty solid. You go through each stage matching elements in groups of 3 or more to deal damage to enemies win and upon winning you get exp, gold, and rune points that level up special enhancements you place on your gear to boost your stats or give you new abilities.
**Note** This game is not P2W, and you do not need to pay to earn gold for healing or anything. This game can be played constantly without having to wait on energy provided you know how the rune system works and you get the ones you need.
Pickaxe is an incremental game where you literally just tap the screen in order to mine various minerals for money. That's it. But the game is a really great way to kill some time if you are bored.
Puzzle Craft is another match three game where you match items to help build your own kingdom. No energy system in this game however, just time based bonuses.
Princess Punt is an Angry Birds/RPG hybrid that is pretty interesting. you fight monsters by kicking your knights and bombs at targets and letting them attack when they collide. clearing stages awards new equipment and orbs/exp/gold that aid in powering up your character.
Witch Puzzle is a pretty basic, but fun time killer match 3 game where you go on endless runs to fight monsters by matching tiles to preform attacks. Every match ranks up a certain element though so they get more powerful over time. when your run ends, you'll gain exp and gold based on how many monsters you beat and can use the gold to buy new gear and be stronger next run. simple, basic, but a good way to kill some time.
