If you want a super long and deep narrative with a huge open world, get Ravensword. It is a bit buggy though so just be weary.

If you are into shooters, MC4 is not too bad. I find the campaign mode to be bland, and I don't really fancy GL's MP for their MC franchise. But if you liked MC3 then this should surely do the trick.

Super Ox Wars and Minotaur Rescue are my next 2 favorites. Sounds like you already did research for Super Ox Wars... Mintaur Rescue is sort of like a trippy Minter version of asteroids. One mode has a "sun" with gravity..I think the other mode has no gravity. There's also 2 bonus games included. Minotaur Rescue is my 2nd favorite Minter iOS game, behind Gridrunner.

Goat Up is fun, but it's actually not endless. I guess it feels a bit like a trippy version of those endless jumping up games.

Minotron, surprising to me, is not as fun as expected. Controls are not as comfortable for me, and there's a lot of quick, cheap deaths. While I had fun with it, it was also pretty frustrating.

Thanks for the response. I got those two & I'm gonna be very happy with them. Already bringing back that feeling of competing on the leaderboards for Forget-Me-Not.

Can someone please recommend some great real time strategy (RTS) games? I'd prefer something with swords and sorcery over something science fiction, but I'll check anything out if the balance and gameplay is there.

Many thanks in advance for any helpful replies!
