No. It has to take into account whether the app if still fit for purpose.
For example I've had OpenSudoku installed on my every one of my phones since pretty much forever. It works fine. I was playing it earlier today.
Google Play says it hasn't been updated since 2011.
Why should it go?
weird, it's paid now, pretty sure it's free when I tried it
not worth the money at all. It's buggy as hell and the fun doesn't last longer than a few hours, but I guess it's the bugs that make it fun.
Than let me be the one who provides a link :)
I didn't played it yet, but looks good in pictures.
As a bonus, you can click on every item to show a popup with additional information.
The game is Shattered Pixel Dungeon, a rogue-like rpg, it's clone of Pixel Dungeon with some new features.
DraStic is pretty awesome for DS emulation. Bear in mind that it is paid though. Not very expensive, but still.
This is straight out of /r/lewronggeneration. A great pc strategy game scaled down for mobile? No way that could happen today.
Pre-registration is available tonight on BethesdaNet.
TES: Blades will be available on all current-gen consoles as well as mobile devices and PC (including VR) and will offer cross-platform play. On mobile, it will be playable in both landscape and portrait modes, and it will be free to play across all devices.
Edit: preregister here
Its called Trap Dungeons 2. Here's the link
Edit: just played the game. The fps is a little choppy (playing on the note 8) and there are no graphic settings.
The game play is solid and is even more frustrating than I thought it would be.
Edit: turns out its a clone. Read comments below.
SpaceTeam was mentioned by someone, but it needs description. It's a same room multiplayer game where you all link up via Bluetooth or wifi. On everyone's screen is a spaceship control panel.
Your spaceship is falling apart. The only thing that can keep that from happening us if everyone follows the instructions popping up on the screen "flip the twibber switch", "turn the balance knob", etc...
The instructions that pop up on your screen might not apply to your controls though, so you have to tell the people on your team to do the thing.
It devolves into frantic yelling obscure instructions at each other and is hilarious fun, especially with more than two people.
You might already have the paid version if you've been buying the humble bundles for Android.
In November, I had an idea for a puzzle game but no programming experience, so I built a proof of concept out of paper and made it a new years resolution to learn programming. I can now call myself a game developer! Please take a look and tell me what you think!
An app where they review games and assign ratings and tags so you can filter. I've found games to play way easier with this than the Playstore. If you like their review it links right to the Playstore and you grab it.
Sorry just wanted to rant about this, it's crazy what some even paid games are doing. I'm the developer of the game, I've been working on it for years. Happy to answer any questions you have.
The game is here - Is a paid game but there is also a demo.
They were included by default for the ads, forgot to remove them. I will consider removing them next update. I don't use them, you can revoke them if you want, it wont make any difference.
Sorry if I got you scared by the permissions.
Edit: -- Those permissions are removed now.
// just for more visibility :doge: :)

I've been working on this game solo, after work and on the weekends for a few years now, and it's finally done. It was a ton of fun to make, and has gotten great response so far. After addressing feedback over the last few weeks, I think it's ready to share with this sub.
It's meant to be a relaxing, peaceful space sim that focuses on exploring and soaking up the scenery.
I'd love to know what you think!

Free NES emulator + Original game files you find on your own = Better "free" product?
Plus most emulators support a slew of neat free features like save-states, rewind, cheats, use of Bluetooth and the like physical controllers wirelessly.
Hey. Developer here, yes the game is old, it will be 3 years in February. I've been struggling to come up with a new game, but just have a few failed prototypes. I did a small update over the weekend, as I wanted to add a new character I had been sitting on for quite a while and wanted to improve the controls some more, as well as do a little Christmas theme for it.
I do apologize for the ads and IAPs, but it's what keeps me from finding a real job and makes it possible for me to to make another game.
p.s my favourite mobile game is Polytopia if you haven't already, get that game!

Star Traders: Frontiers
Star Traders: Frontiers is an open-world/sandbox style sci-fi RPG where you, as a ‘Star Trader’ and captain of your very own ship, must try to make a living in a hostile and unforgiving universe. It can be considered the spiritual (if not direct) sequel to the original Star Traders RPG released in 2011. You can customise your captain however you want in terms of looks and starting traits/stats which will effect what kind of playstyle to try and follow. There's also a range of basic ship types to get you going, and more can be unlocked through playing.
The sheer diversity within the game is its strongest asset. A key gameplay pillar is naturally trading – there are plenty of basic and lucrative trade goods to found all over the game’s world. Buy low, sell high and there are ratings available to give you an indication on how good the price is (although, don’t take it as bible – some of the lower rated goods can yield better profits if you find the right buyer). Beyond this, there’s variations on the trading game such as smuggling and black market trading and of course you could turn into a pirate and just steal everyone else’s goods. You can also ignore commerce completely and go down a more military-focused route, or even make a living chasing down rumours, exploring dangerous wildlands and fighting alien monstrosities.
This feels like the next logical step after playing Kingdom Rush for years. You're presented with a small 3D island which you can rotate and zoom in on in order to efficiently and quickly deploy your battalion to defend against oncoming vikings. Easy controls and a simple premise make for thrilling sessions. Easily one of my favorite mobile games of all time
Hey all, the regular <em>free+ad supported High Rise</em> has been out for a couple weeks now and has over 10,000 players already. Thanks to everyone thats played.
This alternate version is more of a test market for those that have emailed me over the last four months I have been making games. Wanting permission free, ad-free, iap-free versions of stuff like Bing Bong, Flip Flop etc. So I figured I could give it a shot with at least one game after receiving some good feedback to my inbox about the idea.
Thank you everyone for your support, the <strong>Nickervision Studios</strong> player base is over 100,000 strong now :) I'm thrilled you all have enjoyed playing my games and I hope I can keep bringing you new and fun experiences.
Playstore is shit and show no signs of improving anytime soon, i personally use Qooapp, Taptap and the only one i am allowed to link here Minireview more, check them out and use the playstore less.
A platformer game that came out earlier this year and I absolutely love it.
The combat was smooth, especially for a mobile game.
The boss fights were challenging, fun, and unique.
There are few twists in the story. One obvious one that affects the plot immensely and one that caught me completely off guard but didn't do much to the story, except for the character the twist refers to which is the Slayer.
Overall a fun game, and well worth buying after playing the trial.
Game is called Light Switch Simulator and its... well... light switch simulator (with nice relaxing music and font and graphics and its all nice and stuff). Tomorrow i will try to make something more... less useless :)))
Feedback appreciated (if somebody will be able to give feedback on something like this :))
Q: Can i burn my lightbulb?
Q: Whats the point of this game?
A: I have no clue
Q: Does game contains anything more than just brainless clicking?
A: Yes! Nice music!
Says the guy who is actively trying to find new ways to take money from those people.
I mean this is crazy right? People fully funded his kickstarter campaign for this game, and he THEN charged $20 a pop to purchase the game in early access on Steam. NOW, he's talking about a new kind of pay to play, known as "invest to play" that will be featured in GODUS. This man is truly incredible.
It's not as popular as its rival Hearthstone, but Eternal is a much better card game with great deck variety and a very generous economy. A new set is close to release so we're in full spoiler season, with a brand new meta around the corner.
Check the recent Play Store listing, Alien: Blackout is going to be a premium release.
The Apple App Store listing has it priced at $4.99, so probably safe to assume the same price for the Play Store version.
ok, no one cares what i think, but Greenheart stole the game concept from Kairosoft's Gave Dev Story https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.kairosoft.android.gamedev3en&hl=en and does all of their publicity by gimmick. Their game took off when they took on piracy (which was hilarious if it werent a stolen game) and now they are doing this. Stop marketing for these people!
I feel like I have let you down as my role of OP for not telling anyone what the game is. I apologize for that.
Also it's Quadropus Rampage from Butterscotch Shenanigans. Great free roguelite that isn't too narky with it's microtransactions.
The main thing in the game is that you can only turn to the right. Which gives it a nice one touch control scheme.
The game is also completely free with no ads
Google Play Store link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lingonstudios.touchtoturn
Maybe describe what the game is, give a link...I don't really understand when devs post their games which they spent so much time working on but then they seem to go minimum effort in posting/presenting them.
Don't take this personal, I just have seen quite a few posts like this one recently or even seen store pages with just one line describing a game. Development is part of it but presenting your work, show that you re proud of it, make other people want to check it out is the other part...I think those that go this extra step already are ahead of the curve.
Good luck with your game though, I ll check out the store page and give it a look.
Also here s the link to Store Page I m assuming its this one
There have been a bunch of paid AR games released lately and most of them look pretty cool but my phone is not compatable with most of them.
Since no link was provided, Vainglory Play Store Link, and here is a link to android police's Vainglory mini-review
Also, my nomination won :D
Edit: OP added the play store links, leaving for reference
My name is Brian and this is my first time writing about my game, Solitaire: Decked Out.
I grew up playing Solitaire on Window PCs and still enjoy playing Solitaire on my phone before I go to bed. One thing that really annoyed me (when playing Solitaire) was the ads that pops up every time I win a game.I tried to find a free app without intrusive ads but it wasn't easy to find a decent one. I totally agree the developer has to receive the credit, but always wondered if there’s any other way than forcing people to watch ads.
So I decided to start a small project with my colleagues to build an absolutely ad free Solitaire App. As you play Solitaire, you can unlock decks and many winning ceremonies. Currently, nobody knows about this app and I’m curious if any one of you can try playing it and tell us what you think!
Edit: Oops! Link to the app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.devsisters.SolitaireDeckedOut
/u/nimblethor's game review app, MiniReview, is fantastic. I'd say the scores are all a bit inflated, but generally most games with a score of 8 or higher are worth checking out if you like the genre the game is in. Anything 8.5+ is worth checking out without question.
The XCOM 2 Collection requires Android 9 or later. You will need 8.5GB of free space to install the game and all of its content, and we recommend having at least 17GB of free space to avoid installation issues.

Hey reddit, I'm Kyle and this is my game Pixelot!
Download for Android - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=game.pixelotkyle
About the Game
Pixelot is a classic RPG for Desktop, Android, and iOS, that hopes to combine the best parts of classic role-playing games. In Pixelot you will create a custom hero and gather allies to defend against the darkness that has swept over the land of Pixelot. The game will feature numerous recruitable characters, playable classes, items, monsters, and dungeons alike. Promising an engaging story line, laughable dialogue, and a classic yet simple design, Pixelot hopes to be a game that is easy to pick up and hard to put down. There are around 20 different classes you can play as, and hundreds of items and monsters to fight. The game has 3 major dungeons released and I plan to release many more! There's also an infinite dungeon at the end!
How I made the game
I have been working on Pixelot for the last 3 years at night when my wife falls asleep, and basically whenever I have any free time. Growing up playing games like pokemon and final fantasy it was always my dream to make my own game. I have put a lot of heart, humor, and basically everything I have into designing this game and while I know it is far from perfect, I really hope you guys enjoy it! I developed the game in Java, and it is a cross platform app for desktop, android and ios! The game art is exclusively pixel art to give it that retro feel!
I really hope you guys love this game as much as I do and beyond everything I am excited for you to try it and hear your feedback!
EDIT: thank you guys so much for all of your support and for everyone taking the chance to try the game! I really appreciate all the feedback I've gotten and I'll be working hard to put in the suggestions in the next update!
It's looking really good! :D
I'm not sure if you're familiar with this other game, but the perspective and the sprite art reminds me of Star Command.
Hello, I've been very frustrated and depressed because of how poorly my games have been doing. Mobile marketing really does suck, like everyone on here has said in the past.
So I decided to make a low-effort crappy one-tap game.
If you try it out, please tell me what you think. I think I've decided not to waste my money with advertising anymore because the returns are slim-to-none.
A great tower defense game made by a fellow redditor. We could even call it an incremental game. It's designed to play every level dozens of times and come back when your huge upgrade tree is improved. Simple graphics and game, but it can be complex to reach the highest scores.
Triple Town was always my favorite. The only micro transaction is potentially buying a piece you need to keep your streak, but it's never necessary.

The original paid version is also available here if you don't want adverts:
It's an excellent, bite-size game that is very addictive and this original offers a bit more polish and charm than versions that have come since.
Edit: Whoever immediately downvoted this post as soon as I submitted it, could you let me know why? I'd like to post this to another subreddit as well but want to know if I did something glaringly wrong or stupid that would piss people off.
Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead probably the closest thing we have
You will probably want this to make life in CDDA a little easier
I had this concept for a game where the game plays as you would a hack and slash game but you move and attack by choosing one of available actions like in an rpg game. I thought I'll try to polish the concept, get suggestions, and get some fundings by making an arcade-ish game out of it first. So feel free to make any suggestions on what to change/add to polish the concept further which I'll use in the eventual game.
The game is free in Playstore.
I'm also on Twitter if you would like to be updated whenever I post about what I'm working on.
*not the best quality for video in here, you can see the better quality in the playstore
*~~I forgot to give away some codes I already prepared for release, if you are reading this just reply below and I'll send you a code.~~
***Thanks all! I'm sadly out of codes, I might do some more on my Twitter this week? but I haven't set the codes yet, so just follow me there. ~~Right now I'm trying to fix a bug people pointed out.~~ Fixed
I appreciated the style, the music and the story. It's a short game about love. I've read/listened to a couple reviews, but I personally feel like it's better going in blind because of the game's relatively short nature and how it executes the narrative.
It's a rogue like rpg deck builder played tinder style. All the characters are unique and the games received several major updates since launch.
This is quiet the twist! You're the Villain in this game. New tower mechanism is excellent to build multiple strategies.
Hi! We are Nerf Game, a small Indie dev company from Russia. Two years ago we have released Lost Socks on IOS and it was warmly welcomed by the community and we were asked a million times for an android port. It was not so easy to do because we use our own engine written in c++:)
Theres literally no actual screenshots or video of the gameplay? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.silverliningstudio.behindtheframe&hl=en_US&gl=US
You are expecting someone to pay for this, you need more info and screenshots.

I just wanted to take a minute to sincerely thank this community from the bottom of my heart for being so receptive and kind to indie devs in the first place. Let alone me or DopeNet.
Last night I was going over some shit in my Google Play console and saw this chart. The spike at the end is going from closed beta to open beta. I have grinded very hard for an embarrassingly long time on DopeNet and have so far to go. I'm barely started but holy shit all the amazing feedback and support and conversation and friendship coming from this community has put wind in my sails and a fire to keep making DopeNet the best it can be for each player.
If you believe in something, you won't be able to give up. But when others show you love, it makes each day against the odds easier.
I love you all. Beta is still open for ANYONE who wants to join:
Back in 2018 our studio released Inked, a puzzle game set in a hand drawn world. Last year we started on remastering the game and improving it in every aspect, and now it is out!
In the game you play as the Nameless Hero, a wandering samurai who embarks with his love - Aiko to save the world on paper from harm. Following your adventure is the mysterious Artist, the person who drew the world around you. Your stories are connected in more ways than one, and the journey you will take will change you both.
You can purchase the game on Google Play
You can also check out the release trailer

Hi, I wanted to share with you info about new update if my game, ranDungeon.
first off, what is ranDungeon? Its a free (no ads no iaps) mobile hack n slash game with random dungeons, randomly generated items (along with textures), 3 character classes, skills, ability to draw your own skins for both player and items (in ranDungeon you dont pay for skins - you can make them by yourself), and many many other features, all in beautiful pixel style graphics. Game is offline, weights 15mb. Has optional google play leaderboards.
So, like i said, there's been a new update. What does it bring?
-pet system: there is now 10 pets in the game, some of them have unique abilities (monkey helps you in quests for example, gryphon attacks etc) -skin vault where you can store up to 12 custom drawn skins for later use -vastly improved skin editors. Its now easier to use them and they have many more features -new bosses for level 200 and 300 with cool new unique drops -feeling the monsters are too hard? Or too easy? you can now adjust their level as you please -2 new leaderboards
I cant list full changelogs, would be too long but you can read them on game's fb page.
apart from new features, i also tweak some of them, mostly decreasing grind or fixing ui or bugs.
Inportant thing for some people might be that I uploaded sources for some earlier version of the game, for people who want to learn, analyse or just goof around with them. If you wish to find a project you could use to study and learn basics it's for you.
There is also discord server, link on game's fb.

pets system and how to access bosses: https://youtu.be/742N840e2cM
I am doing this non profit, wrote 100% of the code by myself. There is no ads and no payments, because its a game made out of passion. Please if you have any issues, let me know what can i do for you. Thank you.
We’ve been quiet for some time so here’s a little update. we’ve been working all summer with our first bigger update to the game. Besides porting to iOS we hope to add two or three new mountains, snowboarding and twintip skiing and lots of smaller nice things!
Grand Mountain Adventure can be found here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.toppluva.grandmountain
Full priced game, no IAPs. The game description says it has improved graphics over the 3DS version and has simplified controls that are more suitable for touch.
What's strange is that there is absolutely no marketing for it. If it wasn't linked on /r/MonsterHunter I wouldn't have known about it.
EDIT: There's a free demo: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.co.capcom.mhssfen
EDIT 2: Sorry, I just noticed that another thread was made for this 5 hours before I made the post... not sure if I should delete this thread or let mods do it.
DADIU, has quite a few completely free games. I believe it's part of college projects, but don't quote me on that.
Is it any different than this (or any of the many other similar / same core tech) adapters?
The permission was removed a while ago from the app, it's no longer there.

The beta tester version of Mindustry. Dev currently working on a massive update that changes a lot of things. If you dont know, it's like if Factorio had a baby with a wave bases defense game.(not sure I would call it a tower defense game)
King of Dragon Pass is the only phone game I recommend reading the manual for, so there's that.
You can play it without reading the manual, but you'll be missing out on a lot of stuff.
I've been playing The Battle of Polytopia Super fun game, it's kinda like Civilization but more built around being able to be played on Android, I prefer it over Civ Rev 2. Also, Solitairica It fulfills my want for an adventure and card game, I would definitely recommend it if you like solitaire or card games in general.
Yes, I'm trying to be active ^^ There's indeed still a lot of things to implement/improve/polish, you can check what is coming up in the public roadmap: https://trello.com/b/qHp84eWA/gladiabots-public-roadmap ;)
Had a busy Friday, but it's finally online :)
Also, thanks to the great support of you fine folk (<3), TheNextWeb reached out to me, and I'm now doing a weekly column over there too, where my YouTube channel gets a bit of exposure to their audience (here's the first article). Thank you so much for everything you guys have done.
I'm having a blast, enjoying my hobby - all thanks to you guys! Stay awesome!
Use this app to add a selection of CLEO mods:
Use this one to access gta3.img and change the skins, models or textures from you game (pretty much like you do in PC):
I have 20 promo codes to give away so if you would like one, comment below!
Edit: I now have more codes to give away
Edit: I'll be away for 8-10 hours, i'll give out the remainder of the codes in the morning (UK, GMT)!
Edit: I’m back and giving out more codes, comment to let me know if you’d like one.
Hello guys, im an indie game developer. i just created an android game. its a top down 2d stealth puzzle game. the above work is the main menu of my game. it took me about 2 days to get this menu done. The Main menu theme has nothing to do with the game play. it is related to the game's story! for more info check out the game and do give me some feedback. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.divyakarthik.thegame33 .
Since it's P2W nonsense, look into Titan Quest. A PC classic, quite similar to Torchlight, that was recently ported to Android. Needs a fairly powerful device, but it's an excellent game:
Hey guys this is a game I made called Fading Light. I don't really know what type of game it could be described as but the basic premise is you are a pixel of light and you must make your way through the maze before your light fades. If anyone has any questions or wants to give me any feedback I am happy to reply.

Dungeon Warfare is my favorite by far. It's about setting up traps and creatively balancing them to deal with all the different types of enemies.
The trap design is similar to Orc's Must Die, overall it's a really fun game.
I have been really enjoying Subterfuge. It's a multiplayer strategy game that takes a good week or so to finish. Very rewarding and a ton of fun. The community is strong and there seem to always be a good number of open games to join.
Assuming you don't know, Hotline Miami got ported on Android.
EDIT: Thanks for downvotes, what I mean is that OP may not know this even though he played the game on a different platform. It happens very often, and other people may also don't know about the port.
Yes. Google OpenMW project. Bethesda told the devs of the project to stop distributing the Android compiles, but you can compile one yourself.
Link attached for those who wish to take part in reporting it
A little self promotion: When I wrote 'Heroism', one of my goals was to make a poor man's Diablo clone for mobile. Lots of dungeon exploration and looting.
Free Time Game: CoD M I'm having a bunch of fun with this title.
At Work Game: Days Bygone. Just look at it every now and then, getting stronger and stronger as days go by.
I'm kinda looking for something to play other than Days Bygone though. Not sure if any games will fit my criteria though.
Edit: Who downvotes what people are playing? "I'm a miserable fuck, I don't like what you're playing! Fuck you!" Get a life lol.
Have you tried King of Dragon Pass? It is a port of an old dos game and it is fabulous. You lead a clan and have to make a lot of choices that severly impacts the tribe. Can't recommend it enough.
Do you have access to a computer with a browser? You could all jump on Airconsole, both co-op and PVP games available. Each person downloads the app and uses their phone as a controller works pretty slick for a time killer, I think some games work up to 8 players.
Link to google Play - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.airconsole.controller&hl=en_US
This list is missing one of my favorite android games of all time, antiyoy. It's from the same developer of Achikaps.
There are thousands, if not tens of thousands! E.g. me!
The problem is, one person rarely has the resources available to create a successful game that you'll hear of, Minecraft very much being the exception. Additionally, you need to be making enough from your games to work full time on them (I don't), so you usually do it as a side job, then when it becomes very profitable, hire someone with the skills you lack (e.g. graphical, programming, marketing).
Dragonfist Limitless is an an incremental beat-'em-up action RPG.
It's basically half about grinding out levels in the gym under the guidance of your cheeky sensei to increase your Power Level, and half about using those gains to advance stages, with a little bit of story and humour thrown around the mix. I think it occupies a pretty unique place at the moment, with a fair bit of attention to detail, casual but strategic combat, and I've put a lot of love into it over the years.
The game uses on-screen controls and fighting plays like a simplified fighting game, where you actually do some simple button combinations to do special moves (once you unlock them by training).
Fair warning, the game is grindy by design and probably fairly niche in its appeal, but so far the launch yesterday has been quite successful and I've had over 300 players sign up and a lot of good reviews! Actually it's been terrifying, but somebody told me I should share it over in this sub too, so here I am!
The game was a solo project, something I've been working on for the last 3.5 or so years, part of that full time (yep, I'm one of those very smart people who decided to work on their indie game full time -- ask me for more sound financial advice). It's been a heck of a lot of work and I'm really glad it's released, although it's not 100% finished yet (still have to release more updates to continue the story and include the new moves/training and stuff like that).
Here's a link to the app store. Thanks for reading!

I'm working on a new game called 'Heroism' which has some similarities, but is not an idle game..

Buriedbornes. Roguelike, turnbased, plenty of classes and skills/effects, online leader boards but fully playable offline. great for quick pick up and play. I see it recommended here sometimes including me but not so much outside of here. It's a great game that always has a spot on my phone.
After years developing in corporate IT and slowly going mad, I decided to follow my dream and finally write a video game. I wanted something with tight precise controls, without having to resort to a virtual gamepad. I think I've come pretty close to pulling it off, what do you think?
Also, it had to be fun for little kids, but challenging for adults. It has no ads, one optional in app purchase (but you can complete the game without it if you're skilled enough - which personally I'm not).

Edit: Sorry all, my game is only in English, so I limited the countries I released it to (it's my first game, so I'm a total newbie). But with requests coming in from around the globe, I'm thinking this was very silly of me. Hopefully Google will rollout my change soon and everyone can get it. Thanks everyone who let me know!
After months of hard work, squeezed in between zoom calls and home schooling, I’m very proud to finally release my new app, Wordsmyth.
At its core is a puzzle familiar to everyone - create as many words as you can from just 9 letters. You are told how many words can be created, and given a clear list of those you have already found. Wordsmyth takes this basic concept and refines it into a beautiful, daily experience - designed to provide a single point of calm and focus amongst the stresses of everyday life.
You can find it here on Google Play
Anima is an action RPG (hack'n slash) videogame inspired by the greatest old school games and made with passion by Rpg lovers for Rpg lovers, and released in 2019.
Anima, compared to other mobile ARpg, is highly dynamic and leaves the player the chance to fully customize its character, based on their play style, preserving the charming style of the old classics.
It's a high quality racing game. Has several different types of racing, Endurance, Open Wheel, Street, etc. Lots of tracks and cars. Has a great campaign mode that gives you a steady progression. Graphics and controls work perfectly. No IAP! No ads! Totally worth the price. It's my game of the year because I'm a hobby sim racer on PC and this is the first game to scratch that itch on mobile.
I've been playing Graveyard Keeper for the past 8 hours or so?
The game runs like absolute garbage on my Note 8, yet I can't stop playing. I find so much enjoyment in this game it's unreal. The last game that got me this sucked in was Stardew Valley.
To be frank I wouldn't recommend anyone to play it yet because of some borderline game breaking bugs, like placing structures - I thought it didn't work until I figured out you had to tap very quickly and repeatedly to get it to place... and try again and again to align it correctly.
Also the save mechanic is sleeping. You can sleep at any time, but you have to go to your bed, so that's bothering me quite a bit.
But apart from that the game is amazing. Great story, fun gameplay, funny dialogue, macabre theme, beautiful visuals, satisfying progression and crafting... it hits all the right notes for me.
If they fix the issues, I'll definitely buy the DLC with zombie slavery.
But all in all, to anyone looking to jump into this, be prepared to possibly encounter some early release bugs and optimization issues. Either wait or be prepared. Just don't kill the playstore ratings just yet, the game is very good and it sucks to see how bad the ratings are.
Edit: Thanks for the hit and run downvotes for putting effort into a comment.
It is always a great game to come back to after a while. Also it and another Kairosoft game is being ported to the Switch
Logging Quest 2 is somewhat like an AI-controlled game that plays as an RPG. You set up the three members of your team with Tactics that dictate their behavior through if-then statements. The INT stat controls how many Tactics a single character can have set at one time, so fighters will have to make do with few while mages get a bunch.
The AI explores on its own and there are a scant few times when you have to tell the team to use an item in a specific room to advance, but Tactics largely dictates in- and post-combat behavior like resting and deciding which items to keep when the inventory is full. You have to manually tell your team where to explore and for how many floors, but you're given an ETA on their return, which quickly turns into a few hours of real time. They'll explore until they reach the set limit or they can't continue any further. If the team wipes, they lose everything they picked up and experience they gained too.
The game tracks every action taken both exploring and fighting, thus the "logging" part. The logs clue you in to where your gear, skills, or Tactics are failing so you can try again and hopefully win the day this time.
There aren't many games out there that aren't copycats of each other. They will need to have a clear rules on what constitute copycats.
This game for example: Monster League ... is this copycats of Pokemon?
