Cookies Must Die is a free-to-play platformer that's actually worth playing

Cookies Must Die is the latest release from Rebel Twins, the creators of Daddy Was A Thief, Aliens Drive Me Crazy, and most notably, Dragon Hills. As expected, Cookies Must Die offers a zany story, beautiful 2D art, and quality controls, though this is a free-to-play release, so the title's monetization isn't the best, but it is at least reasonably tolerable thanks to title's polished gameplay.

Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall hands on: Yet another F2P strategy game ruined by greedy monetization

Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall is an upcoming mobile strategy game that clearly contains a Game of Thrones skin, and it recently entered into a beta testing phase in Australia and New Zealand. Luckily, this beta also appears to be accessible to the US, so I've installed the game so that I can go hands-on with the title to report on exactly what it has to offer.

Dragon Quest of the Stars is coming to the West (Update: Pre-reg now available, official release Feb. 25)

Square Enix just announced that its free-to-play role-playing game Dragon Quest of the Stars will come to the West in early 2020. On top of this announcement, the developer has stated that starting today mobile gamers in select regions can register to participate in a closed beta test for the Android version of the game. Supposedly this is a "critically acclaimed" title in Japan that's racked up over 20-million installs, though, from the looks of it, the game is a casual RPG with a popular brand slapped on top.

Square Enix will shut down Mobius Final Fantasy globally on June 30

Square Enix has just announced that it will be shutting down Mobius Final Fantasy, a free-to-play RPG originally released in 2016. The game's servers have been offline in Japan since December, and as of this morning, the studio has made it clear that the global version will be shut down on June 30, 2020. Updates and in-game events will still take place in the coming months, including the conclusion of the Warrior of Despair story, though Magicite (purchasable in-game currency) sales will end in March.

Snowman Story is a delightful adventure game that offers a heartfelt story perfect for Christmas

I've been covering Odencat (formerly known as Daigo Studio) releases in my weekly game roundups for a while now, so I'm delighted to highlight the studio's newest game Snowman Story. Having arrived on the Play Store yesterday, I spent some time with this story-based adventure game. Not only does it offer a heartwarming Christmas story that's perfect for play throughout the holidays, but the pixel-based graphics are also excellent, and the monetization is fantastic.

Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery brings jump scares to the real world with official Android release

Last month we learned that the next Five Nights at Freddy's release would enter into early access in November, and thanks to a recent press announcement, it has been revealed that the official launch of Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery will take place today. It would seem early access was opened worldwide this past Friday, and today marks the official release. Much like the previous titles in the series, you'll have to confront malfunctioning animatronics in an attempt to survive their horrors, but this time around, you'll do so in a game made exclusively for mobile devices that uses augmented reality to bring its jump scares to the real world.

Call of Duty: Mobile update adding controller support, zombie mode, and more

An official Call of Duty: Mobile account on Reddit has revealed that a significant update is coming to the game later today. It's slated to arrive at 21:00 PST, and this update will include controller support, a new zombie mode, and new maps. A new Battle Pass is also coming, but it won't arrive until November 25th. Back when I covered the release of Call of Duty: Mobile in October, I was delighted with the shooter, though the missing controller support was a sticking point. Thankfully Activision has been listening to its fans, so the announcement for today's update is indeed very welcome news.

Battle Breakers is the first title to join Fortnite on the Epic Games launcher

Battle Breakers has been in testing on the Play Store since 2017, but Epic has unceremoniously turned the servers off for the Play Store version, most likely because the game has been officially launched through the Epic Games launcher, a third-party app that was previously known as the Fortnite Installer. If you're unfamiliar with Battle Breakers, it's a free-to-play RPG that contains hero collection mechanics. The story revolves around menacing monsters from space that have trapped the world's heroes inside of magical crystals, and of course, it will be your job to free these heroes by fighting these monsters in an RPG setting.

(Update: Game cancelled) Rush Wars is Supercell's next combat strategy game, beta now available in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand

Supercel started to hint at its next combat strategy game last Friday with a teaser tweet from an account named "Rush Wars" that contained the number "26" and the word "beta." As of this morning, we now know that this title is currently available as a beta release on the Google Play Store in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. From the looks of it, this is a game that combines many of the mechanics found in earlier Supercell releases, so if you're a fan of the studio's previous work, it appears that Rush Wars doesn't stray too far from what's made the developer so famous.

NBA 2K Playgrounds beta available in select regions

NBA 2K Playgrounds started as a 2K NBA series for consoles, but it would appear that the brand is coming to Android. The new NBA 2K Playgrounds listing on the Play Store recently arrived for beta testing in select regions. More or less, it would appear that 2K has given the series the free-to-play treatment for mobile play since this beta version already contains in-app purchases that range up to $99.99 per item. The game has been designed to offer fast-paced 2v2 matches for an arcade feel, and of course, you'll have to collect NBA players to pad out your roster.
