Tomb Raider Reloaded
This portrait-mode roguelike lets players take on the iconic role of Lara Croft as she blasts her way through dangerous underground caverns and vibrant greenery in the jungle. Players need to traverse procedurally generated stages and dodge deadly traps to collect ancient relics and put their puzzle-solving skills to the test.
The game also features plenty of exciting power-ups players can earn with each new run, as well as trademark actions that the iconic heroine is known for. The original soundtrack is a love letter to the franchise's legacy as well.
Another interactive live-action sim from Wales Interactive launches onto mobile this week with Ten Dates, a choice-based dating game where you play as either Misha or Ryan in search of love in London. The game features a variety of potential options for "The One", with each choice you make determining the multiple endings.
The game boasts more than 12 hours of filmed footage with top-notch talents, as well as a handy Real-time Relationship Status Tracking that helps you make a note of how you're doing on the search for romance so far.
Tower of God
Based on the hit webtoon with 6 billion views across the globe, this mobile RPG lets players build their own team from the vast roster of characters in the OG source material. As they collect characters and discover their individual stories, players can dive into a thrilling main narrative by clearing missions on their way to the top of the tower as well.
The game also features Ignition Weapons, a handy auto-play option, as well as idle gameplay. Players can easily score rewards even when they're logged off the game, with in-game goodies that can be accumulated for 16 hours max.
Boasting the 2021 Game of the Year award on the Mac App Store under its belt, this popular puzzle game has now been optimised for mobile, inviting players to explore the eerie mysteries of the island of Myst. Players will discover the intriguing circumstances surrounding the island one puzzle at a time.
The mobile version features new art, fresh soundscapes, revamped interactions, as well as multi-language localisation. It also lets you randomise puzzles should you wish for a bigger challenge - plus, the game supports not only touch controls but also gamepad inputs.
Who doesn't love an isekai story? As you can tell from the title alone, this mobile RPG thrusts players into a parallel universe as Sho, an unmotivated youth who gets reincarnated into a fantasy world as Shaw.
Now tasked with the role of a powerful Sage, Shaw must join forces with other colourful characters in this new world in order to take down the evil Overlord. He also wields powerful UR Passives, which include the predictive "Future Movie" and the "Accident Insurance" skill that allows him to jump back and change an outcome before it's Game Over.
