Time Recoil

Time Recoil is a top-down shooter with some very challenging gameplay. The iffy touchscreen controls also don't help in this regard. For the most part, this shooter offers an enjoyable experience, if a bit unbalanced, as you will have to think through your actions before you can succeed. This also means you will have to play through some levels more than a few times to figure out exactly where you need to go and who you need to kill.

Space Snake

Space Snake is a reimagining of the classic Nokia Snake game as an endless runner. The trouble is the controls are very sensitive, and the design of the game's stages demands very precise timing. This sadly means you will be dying a lot, which plays right into the number of advertisements you will have to see. Luckily you can remove all those ads with a single in-app purchase.

Little Champions

Little Champions plays a lot like a game of mini-golf that uses a slingshot mechanic to shoot your ball. The problem is there are way too many loading screens, and the game is generally pretty glitchy. This doesn't mean it's completely broken, but its performance sure could use some attention.

If you enjoy quirky racing games, then you may want to take a look at Falcon Valley Multiplayer Race. Just as the name suggests, this is a multiplayer game that is themed around racing falcons, of all things. Just keep in mind that competing at first will be difficult thanks to all of the upgrades most of the other players will already have. But once you play for a bit, you should be able to keep up just fine.

Head Boxing ( D&D Dream )

Head Boxing is a casual free-to-play fighting game with simple controls and decent graphics.

Grimms Notes was initially released in Japan by Square Enix, and this English version has been published by FLERO Games for a Western audience.

Grim Soul: Dark Fantasy Survival

Grim Soul: Dark Fantasy Survival is a challenging survival MMORPG that leans heavily on exploration, crafting, and combat.

ChronoBlade is a free-to-play side-scrolling RPG brawler that takes its cues from many of the classic arcade beat 'em ups of yesteryear. Apparently, each character in the game has over 30 separate attacks, which means you should be able to customize their abilities to fit your play style. If you are a fan of over-the-top brawlers, this is a solid choice. Just watch out for the numerous in-app purchases.

Nexomon

Nexomon is the latest clone to rip off the basic gameplay found in Gamefreak's Pokémon games. Of course, you should expect a ton of free-to-play mechanics to be dumped on top of the core collection gameplay, which means by default this title will never be able to compare to the fun found in the official Pokémon games.

Battle Brawlers is a free-to-play PvP strategy game that looks suspiciously similar to Clash Royale. So in a sense, it is a mashup of MOBA and card-based gameplay. It appears to still be in testing though, so there may be some issues with this initial release such as bugs or performance issues.

Partymasters - Fun Idle Game

I am not really sure what to make of Partymasters. At its core, it is an idle game, which isn't really an issue. But the theme, yeah, it just looks really poorly thought out. Maybe I just need to get with the times, but honestly the stereotypes pictured in this game just come off as tasteless, and normally I don't even subscribe to such ridiculous lines of thought. But hey, to each their own, I'm sure this release will appeal to someone.
