Let's get on with it!
This mobile JRPG is a continuation of the Cross Summoner series that features real-time battles and a hand-drawn art style. The retro-inspired title lets you battle enemies out on the fantasy world as well as duke it out against other players in the PvP arena.
The game boasts a host of unique characters players can collect and level up, with a vast combination of skills and combos to unleash in combat for the ultimate team lineup. Downloading the game now will reward you with 10 free draws when you redeem the SUMNR10 code.
Adrenaline junkies can have their fill of extreme downhill biking in Descenders, especially since its physics-based gameplay is complemented by procedurally generated environments. Players will have to put their skills to the test against roguelike elements in the game.
The title also features a Rep system that players can aim to build, as well as high scores they can try to hit to unlock special in-game goodies. There's also a team-based mechanic where picking a side (Enemy, Arboreal or Kinetic) means you can connect with other players in the same team.

Thanks to SNK's recent partnership with Hamster Corporation, mobile gamers can now enjoy retro classics via the ACA NEOGEO series on mobile devices. The iconic hit action shooting game lets players take control of Marco, Fio, Trevor and Nadia as they battle against relentless foes and enjoy a new Metallish System for high scores.
The original game was launched in 2002 by SNK as the fifth instalment of the popular series. This new mobile version features online ranking modes as well as quick save/load functions, along with an option to customise the virtual pad for convenience.
