Heya!

We might have one coming up that's like that.

The beta thread's here but we should have more to show in the coming weeks!

It comes with a comic that updates weekly (for a while at least!)


Game Show Warrior | Soldier, TV Star and Extreme Sports Athlete, all fused into one.
Play Amazing Studly Strikes | Watch the Trailer | Read the Manga

If you like rogue-like then Cavern is great.

Coming out this week if you like SRPG then Kingturn is the best game this year so far IMO. (Been playing advance promo copy for the last few days).

I think it's coming the day after normal release day like Friday for some reason. It really is a cut above the average IOS offering. It has a well written narrative, beautiful art, adjustable difficulty and enemy spawn rate, and 67 scenarios of pure SRPG goodness.

These two are great one thumb games where simplicity of control doesn't mean you lose out on great depth and gameplay.

Bitdungeon is a must own... But a bit hard to play with one finger. Not saying it can't be done... Just a bit hard... And it's in landscape view. = o/

Anywho...

Mr Crab was just released... Portrait and landscape views, easily played with one thumb/hand/finger...
