Nintendo and Cygames’ Dragalia Lost is a very pretty mobile game. The characters are lovely, the music is gorgeous, and its overall presentation is quite charming. One could almost forget it’s just another generic character collecting mobile action RPG under all of that polish. Almost.
Stop watching movies on your iPad. Stop browsing the web.
I downloaded The Sims Mobile to see if it would let me trap a virtual person in a bathroom-less building. Now I’m two working mothers raising a child. I couldn’t be happier, at least not without having to wait out some sort of happiness timer.
Here is how to make a great video game featuring licensed characters. Step one: find a great video game. Step two: put characters from We Bare Bears, Steven Universe and Adventure Time in it. That’s pretty much how Cartoon Network Match Land was born.

Released in arcades in 1976, Atari’s original Night Driver is an outstanding example of doing more with less, simulating first-person driving through nothing more than a series of scrolling rectangles. The new Night Driver, coming soon to Android and iOS, looks like any other mobile racing game.
The long-awaited sequel to Snowman’s wonderful endless snowboarding game is finally here. While Alto’s Odyssey swaps the snow-capped mountains of Alto’s Adventure for sandy deserts and jungle temples, it’s still incredibly chill.
Alto’s Odyssey, the follow-up to super-chill endless snowboarding game Alto’s Adventure, is launching for iOS devices on February 22 for $4.99. Originally scheduled for release last summer, the game was delayed in August as part of a sinister plot to make me cry.

Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition is an abridged Final Fantasy XV for players without the time, patience or attention span for the full game. What a brilliant idea.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT for the PlayStation 4 is a competitive real-time action game in which two teams of three players each do battle with an assortment of Final Fantasy characters. Dissida Final Fantasy Opera Omnia, NT’s mobile counterpart, is a just a regular old turn-based RPG.
A game as popular as Studio MDHR’s animated run-and-gunner is bound to get its fair share of mobile rip-offs, but the bootleg version of Cuphead that showed up on the iTunes app store earlier today was something else—a very rough, semi-playable version of the full game.
Previous attempts at creating a gaming-centric smartphone include phones with slide-out game controllers, a cross between a Sony PlayStation Portable and a phone and the Nokia N-Gage. For its first gaming phone, Razer went with a powerful black rectangle with a stunning display and outstanding speakers. Smart move.
A couple of weeks back I wrote about Lineage 2: Revolution, a mobile MMORPG that can be played mostly on autopilot. Two weeks later, I’m still playing. After a decade and a half of playing highly involved PC MMOs, it’s nice to have a game I only need to play an hour a day.
Now that the two canceled Avengers Alliance games are a distant memory, FoxNext Games and Marvel Entertainment unveil Marvel Strike Force, a squad based mobile RPG in which players battle it out with collectible heroes and villains from the comics, due out in early 2018.
