Assemble With Care
There's something therapeutic about putting broken things back together again, and as the title suggests, Assemble With Care tasks you with piecing together bits of what once was across an engaging narrative. You'll follow the story of antique restorer Maria as she helps the townsfolk recover their possessions in the town of Bellariva.
Crafted by BAFTA Award-winning studio ustwo games, the narrative puzzler is now free to start on both iOS and Android after its stint as an Apple Arcade exclusive in 2019.
Necromancer sims give you the freedom to build your own creatures from scratch, and in Necrosmith, you can think about it as raising the dead as a form of public service. You'll assemble different body parts to craft your masterful creations, and each one will offer you a variety of abilities you can wield in combat.
The game also features a mix of tactical and auto-battling mechanics as you explore maps, gather resources, look for castle blueprints, and find materials to help you upgrade your tower.
This pixel-art twin-stick adventure tasks you with discovering the truth about an apocalyptic future across a desert wasteland. The retro-inspired game will put all kinds of monsters and machines in your way, and you'll have to rely on your trusty twin pistols to live to fight another day.
The game also features a variety of areas to explore and different enemy types to take down. Apart from the visuals, the retro background music adds to the nostalgic charm of the game as well.
This unique game encourages players to get up and get moving with its action-packed battles infused with AR tech. Essentially, you'll battle against fearsome monsters in the real world via Augmented Reality - the catch is that you'll need to put in a significant level of physicality to succeed.
For instance, you'll squat to find enemy weak points and move around to dodge your foes' attacks. At the end of every combat sesh, you can check to see how many calories you burned to encourage you to keep at it and get fit while having fun.
This visually stunning roguelite promises plenty of adrenaline-pumping action across Chinese martial arts-inspired aesthetics. Boasting over a million in sales on Steam, the game is adding its DLC1 and Endless Mode to the mobile version to give on-the-go players more reasons to dive into this Hades-esque title.
The game features 7 combat schools and 50 Relics to tinker around with, as well as 51 kinds of weapons to discover as you fight against bosses and mini-bosses across procedurally generated levels.
