Trying to find good mobile games – Licensed games

May 25th, 2017 No comments

So I’m always looking for something good to play on my phone. For those moments where my handhelds are home and I want to waste a few minutes, or I’m watching something and I want to do something that requires little thought at the same time. Problem is, good games on mobile isn’t really a thing.

So here I’m gonna talk about a few games I’ve tried, with one metric: it’s all games that are based on existing IPs. Because why not.

And out of nowhere, right before releasing Fire Emblem Heroes, Nintendo also released Pokemon Duel.

Fire Emblem Heroes
Mobile games just tend to not be good. I’ve been searching long and hard for good mobile games, and the only ones that end up being acceptable tend to be digital versions of already-good board games.

So here comes Nintendo in the mobile scene. I haven’t played Super Mario Run yet because it’s not out on Android (and not compatible on my iPod), but they have given a big spotlight to Fire Emblem Heroes. Before the announcement I joked that they’d make it a Gacha game with permadeath. I guess I was close enough, since it is a Gacha game.

So I thought I’d give my impressions about the game. Not really a review, not sure a game like this is “reviewable”. Let’s do this and see if this finally provides a good mobile gaming experience.

(this is not the last mobile game I will talk about, as I keep searching for any that are actually good)
