Are there any games that are actually based on being fun to play and not some sort of treadmill where you're endlessly building your house/town/character and being asked to spend money to cheat? I loved the Kingdom Rush franchise and I'm willing to pay upfront for a game if I don't have to constantly be interrupted by shitty ads or be enticed over and over to pay for gold/stars/whateverthefuck. I like strategy/puzzle type games more than twitch/shooter stuff. If Kingdom Rush could put out one game a year I would never need anything else but that doesn't happen.
I'm still looking, but mobile games are just various levels of casino's. I'm liking afk arena for being pretty f2p friendly but is also still just basically a treadmill. Regularly add new heroes and little events so it's been fresh enough for me for a few months. But I probably will look for something else soon. Started warpath which is extremely p2w so sticking around only as long as my clan with a bunch of whales carries me for a bit.

Rovio just put out a new aRPG called Darkside Heroes.


I just started playing today, but its pretty fun so far. You get a team of 5 with one skill each. The skills take time to get ready. You also get mana to cast spells that takes time to load up. You dont control your groups movement, monsters just come at you in stages.

Its a bit of a gacha, but you just get characters from chests you have to earn. Theres beta pvp thats pretty fun. Tons of microtransactions, so it will probably get fairly ptw in pvp.

Same shit, different wrapper. I loaded it up on an emulator and came back 2 days later leveled up. Super engaging. /s

Wasn't being a cunt. As far as best mobile game, it's just more of the same. I still hopelessly expect more. Those do show up about once or twice a year.

I've been enjoying Shop Titans. There are no ads which is a huge plus.

Sadly, there is VERY little incetive to do this. Mobile gaming at this point is accepted to be exactly this. Either gacha games, casinos, or pay to win things. The niche they are attempting to appeal to are people who generally dont have time to game on PC, and instead want to game on mobile. Because of the time constraints these people have, being able to pay to win allows them to keep up with the game, without spending the time to actually do so.

While a paid game can certainly work, you're going to get very very few players of it. You might sell 1000 copies of a game for $5 each. Congrats on your $5000. Meanwhile, some half ass quality f2p game has one whale that's already dropped 10k on it.

Strange question maybe, but since everything is packed up and I needed a mobile game, is anyone in Idle Heroes that I can send a Friend invite for stuff? Had to pick up something and it is was time to just go full retard.
