Monster Hunter Now
This highly anticipated entry into the AR sphere brings Niantic's expertise from Pokemon Go into a new franchise, particularly Capcom's popular beast-hunting series. You'll need to step out into the world to hunt for monsters on your own or with your friends, all while making the most of the game's AR features for the ultimate immersion.
The game offers plenty of loot you can gather to upgrade your weapons and gear, and all you have to do is tap and swipe your way to victory each time you encounter these fearsome beasts across different habitats.
This vibrant new idle RPG from SuperPlanet features all the typical elements you'd expect from the genre, along with a fast and convenient growth system and progression that does away with the hardcore grind. There are 16 types of magic, as well as more than 80 skins featuring different skills to tinker around with for the ultimate customisation.
The game also boasts a variety of battle modes (all 9 of them) where you can see your adorable pixel-art characters in action, from taking down the World Boss to exploring the Monster's Nest.
This premium title tasks you with reshaping the Roman Empire from scratch on iOS. You'll not only need to strategise how to make your land flourish, but you'll also have to pay attention to what makes your citizens happy as you expand your territory in Ancient Rome.
The game features more than 24 different scenarios where you need to aim for certain layouts or levels of happiness. The time limit spices up the gameplay even more and pushes your tactical prowess as well, all presented in lovely aesthetics that stay true to classic and historical Roman architecture.
Hero of the Kingdom
Lonely Troops' point-and-click adventure lets you journey through a non-linear narrative as you set off from your peaceful town and hone your skills to recover what was taken from you - your old life. After bandits raid your town and kidnap your father, you'll need to gather your might and mettle to pick up the pieces of your once-idyllic life.
The game features plenty of challenges to take on, whether you're gathering herbs or hunting animals for some much-needed loot. You'll also have to be creative when it comes to your finances, which offers a myriad of ways you can go about your quest.
Empire of the Gods
This Ancient Egypt-themed card game offers more than 30 stages where you can strategise the best way to maximise your Power, Wealth, Faith, and Life, all in the name of making your resources flourish. There are plenty of "Base" and "Special" cards to master, as well as "Bonus" cards that offer welcome boons and the "Master" card that will allow you to advance.
The game features 15 achievements to unlock as you make your village thrive and expand your Egyptian rule.
