Big List of Android Game Reviews

So, as some of you know, I play a ton of mobile games. It's the love for these games that made me start this thread, so read on.

Story time:
In terms of discovering new mobile games, the Google Play store is pretty broken.
So therefore, some weeks back, I got an idea; since I play so many mobile games anyway, why don't I just commit to sharing my comments / thoughts on the games I play with others who might be interested in some of these games. That way, I'll always have a new game to recommend when people ask, and can act as a curator for new/fun/amazing mobile games.

So that's what I've been doing every week day ever since. The videos aren't exactly reviews with stars and a fixed format to go through and all, but rather a mix of a "let's play" commentary and a review (the point of which is to arrive at an answer to the question of; will I keep this game installed?).

So, what's this thread about?
I decided to create this thread here to share the best of the games I play and to hopefully spark meaningful discussions around said games.

I also hope that all of you will recommend your favorite mobile games and explain what you like/dislike about it.

I'll try to update this first post with all the names of the games + downloads link divided into categories/genres as we go on to make it easier to find a game within a certain genre.
For now, though, I'll just share the latest game I played, which is the roguelike shooter Soul Knight.

Feedback on this format is of course very welcome

Who knows. If it's a great game, there's a good chance I'll cover it What's the name of your game?

Today's update: Paper Wings
If any of you are looking for a casual game, I might just have found the perfect game!

What really sets it apart is its perfect monetization. There are many great casual games out there (too many, in fact), but most of them throw un-wanted ads in your face at some point. Paper Wings doesn't, and that's what I love about it. Apart from that, the gameplay is simple (it's a casual game after all), with plenty of characters (birds) to unlock.

My latest gameplay review is of a chaotic shooter that I found super entertaining, although (be warned), the controls weren't the best.

Overall a really great experience, but judge for yourself because it's time to play Flat Army Sniper War

So, I decided to start out the week in what I thought would be a relaxed pace by downloading a casual game called Super Phantom Cat. I soon realized, however, that while the game is casual, it is certainly NOT relaxing!
The retro vibe and arcade-like difficulty really brought me to the front of my seat!

As of now I'm currently playing Fantasy Squad. It was recommended by my friend and I was playing a week ago. Fantasy Squad is an extreme action RPG that lets you experience a dynamic real-time combat.Gear up your squad for an ultimate battle with great randomizes weapon, armor or jewelry. And I love the different hero's that you can summon and create your squad!

For me the experience was awesome and you should play with it to experience the fun.

Seems like an interesting game, really. I might check it out for a video later this week. Thanks for the recommendation!

Today, I decided to play a small indie game called ANYCRATE. What ANYCRATE sets out to do is really admirable - it tries to make local co-op work on mobile. The developer has done this by simplifying the control-scheme a lot, allowing for only jump and shoot controls. Luckily, the game also features a single-player mode where you play vs. an AI - so don't worry if you don't have anyone around you to play with A small indie game that I instantly fell in love with, to be honest.

Today's commentary/recommendation: Bomb Rain
Bomb Rain - Tap Reflex Game is... well, it's frustratingly difficult. Like, really really difficult. But in a good way, though! In fact, I loved to hate and rage at this game just from the beginning. There are no flapping birds in this insanely difficult mobile game, but the bombs are just as deadly, and never forgive mistakes!

Today's commentary/recommendation: Lords of Discord
Lords of Discord is a 3D turn-based strategy game that reminds me a whole lot of Heroes of Might and Magic. And boy, did I love playing Heroes of Might and Magic 3 on the PC back in the day!

I like this game a lot. Very entertaining and simple to control. Good game for kids and adult.
