Disruptor Beam (And Special Guest Q) Shows Off More Details On The Upcoming Star Trek: Timelines Mobile Game

Star Trek fans who want to play video games based on their favorite franchise are constantly frustrated. Trek games are few and far between, and they seem to range from terrible (like the recent Faux Trek game for consoles from back in 2013), to promising but ultimately destroyed (like Star Trek Online), to blatant, lazy cash-grabs (like Star Trek Trexels). Is it really possible that there's a decent Star Trek game on the horizon? Signs point to "maybe."

Disruptor Beam, the developer behind the Game of Thrones Ascent mobile game, is switching from fantasy to sci-fi. The upcoming Star Trek: Timelines is a game that mixes all of the original Trek franchises in a big continuity-warping time bubble.

Fearless Fantasy Arrives In The Play Store, Remains Just As Quirky And Vaguely Creepy As Ever

Swords, forests, and monsters are par for the course in turn-based RPGs, but tinyBuild's Fearless Fantasy manages to include all of these things while still feeling fresh and original. After first launching on Steam for PCs and making its way over to iOS and the Amazon Appstore, the game has now made an appearance in the Play Store.

This RPG's art style is fearless in its design and instantly memorable. If you don't find the characters endearing, then they might just haunt your nightmares. Either way, they'll stick with you.

The combat style utilizes a combination of gestures, swipes, and proper timing to keep you doing more than selecting attacks and watching their delivery.

Dragon Quest VI Is The Latest Square Enix Port To Hit The Play Store: $15 To Get Your JRPG On

Square Enix, listen to me: stop making Android ports. Please. You're really bad at it. All of these games, most of which are decades old and extremely expensive by mobile standards, are embarrassingly lacking in polish and features.

Take the latest, Dragon Quest VI. By all accounts it's a classic JRPG, and one that many never got to play in the west since the original Super NES version was only released in Japan. On Android it's fifteen bucks. It comes with zero Google Play Games features (no cloud saves!), has no compatibility with Bluetooth controllers or Android TV, and it doesn't even work in landscape mode.

Dungeon-Crawling RPG Torchlight is Coming To Android Later This Year

In many ways, Torchlight and Torchlight II are better at Diablo-style RPG gameplay than Diablo itself is these days. These games were released on PC several years ago, but now Torchlight is coming to Android (and iOS) later this year. Get hype.

Square Enix Ports The PSP Remake Of Fan Favorite 'Final Fantasy Tactics' To Android For $13.99

Final Fantasy Tactics was an oddball when it was first released for the PlayStation in 1997 - ostensibly a member of the never-repeating (at the time) Final Fantasy series, the game broke from the familiar turn-based battles with a new isometric system that put a huge emphasis on tactical positioning and strategic use of classes and attack ranges. While FFT never got the attention of the standard numbered RPGs in the series, it became a sleeper hit, and the original was kept alive with a few sequels and remakes. It remains a popular game for PS1 emulators.

You won't need an emulator to play Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions, at least not anymore.

The Upcoming Game 'Star Wars: Uprising' Will Fill In The Gaps Between Jedi And The Force Awakens

You might have heard that Disney is releasing a new Star Wars film at the end of this year. You might also have heard that it has tossed out almost all the non-film pre-acquisition content produced under license from Lucasfilm. That leaves a lot of gaps in Star Wars canon, but the upcoming mobile game Star Wars: Uprising might get things back on track a bit. It's set between Return of the Jedi and the new film.

Weird Turn-Based RPG 'Fearless Fantasy' Comes To Android Via The Amazon Appstore

Fearless Fantasy might make you do a double-take. Yes, the characters actually look like that. They're quirky. The entire art style is peculiar, and it sets you up for what to expect from the rest of the experience. This isn't your usual role-playing game.

FearlessFantasy3

Fearless Fantasy treats us to an original plot accompanied by animated cutscenes and voice-overs. You play as Leon, a bounty hunter who is out to slay the world's most dangerous creatures and save a girl from a horrible marriage.

It should therefore come as no surprise that the game contains plenty of monster-slaying. Combat is turn-based, but there's a timing mechanic that makes the action more compelling than simply selecting an attack and watching the result.
