Whether you’re a seasoned mobile gamer or you’re on the lookout for a new game to fill your morning commute, here are five of the best mobile games to pay attention to this week.
Rabbids Crazy Rush // FREE
This free-to-play, level-based runner from Ubisoft is seriously worth a go. Guide this rabid creature through a variety of environments as you dodge obstacles and collect cans to fulfil your crazy lunar dreams. The system is rewarding (and therefore addictive!) and the visuals are really nice, looking great on iOS and android.
The Warlock of Firetop Mountain // £4.99
This is one of those games that makes you feel instantly nostalgic. A cross between choose your own adventure comics and turn-based tabletop dice rollers, the Warlock of Firetop Mountain presents that classic gameplay in 3D on iPhone and iPad. Choose your hero from four characters, and navigate through a deathly dungeon as you complete their unique quest. The game costs £4.99, but further content can be unlocked starting from £2.99.
Dungeon Rushers // £4.99
Playing this and Warlock of Firetop Mountain in the same week, its easy to draw parallels. Both are tactical dungeon crawlers with turn-based combat, but Dungeon Rushers from Mis-Clos and Goblinz Studios has a little less story and way more action and customization. This 2D adventure is more about the clearing out dungeons, slaying monsters and filling your boots with loot. You can even build your own dungeon, which is awesome, laying out traps and enemies for other players to take on.
Turmoil // £5.99
A seriously unique take on simulation, Turmoil gives you the reins of a budding oil empire in 19th century America. The art style is really lovely, and although its missing some of the depth you might get in a serious simulator, the game is fun to play. Dig for oil, research tech to upgrade and watch the town grow up around you as the cash pours in. There’s even political intrigue as you beat out local rivals to be the next mayor.
Wobblers // FREE
This free to play arcade-style game will have you obsessively striving to beat your last score. Maintain your balance as your wobbler blasts through levels avoiding obstacles and bombs, and collecting the constant stream of coins and stars. Umbrella have packed the game full of content, with hundreds of levels and an army of adorable wobblers to pick up along the way.
