I've never played the first game in the series, so I'm not sure how much has changed. But as a newcomer to the series, this game is a fun time. It's like an action RPG, where you go into battles with a team, but you only control one character. And each character has their own moveset and abilities set to a cooldown timer. The main draw is that there are fairies you can collect that will help you in combat and do background tasks that earn you items.
I didn't like how many in-game purchases there are though. If you try to go for your daily login bonuses or bonus rewards, there's like 6 or 7 sets of rewards that you can buy mixed in. They're not necessary to progress, but it's annoying that they get in the way.

Coming off of the console Fist of the North Star game (Lost Paradise), this game looks super great and holds up well to that one! The presentation here is top notch and if your phone can run it at the highest graphics, it looks super pretty! Well, as pretty as the post-apocalypse can look lol

Gameplay is turned based combat, but you can combo together attacks and each character also has special abilities to use. It is pretty overwhelming at the beginning, especially at the main menu when there's like a million icons and options. But if you follow along with the tutorial, you'll get the hang of it. Oh and a couple of hours in and so far the gacha system doesn't seem too bad. But that's mostly cause I haven't had any trouble using the team they give you.

Would definitely say to check this out if you're a fan of the series or have been curious to see what it's all about. Just be ready to get a lot of info thrown at you.

First things first, I'm definitely a Love Live! fan first. But I saw that Idolm@ster got a new game, so I was curious and wanted to check it out. And I gotta say, I'm legit impressed by it and would love to see something like this for Love Live!

So this is like a companion app to the other Idolm@ster games. Where you can use VR or gyro controls (moving your phone around) to interact with the different girls. My favorite feature was the Gyro mode, because you can pick any idol and watch them perform a song or see them in certain costumes on different stages. It's a really neat mode and the graphics look great!

The only thing I wish was that there was more content unlocked out the gate. Like there's only one song to watch and listen to. If you want more, you have to go and purchase some in app. At least the option is there, but as a casual fan I'd rather sample the songs and find my favorites before I buy any.

Knowing nothing about the Buddysma series / games, I went in wanting to check out a card game. And came out pleasantly surprised! The game has a straightforward tutorial that walks you through the basics, so you'll get the hang of the card battles in no time. And the menus / layout of everything is pretty clean and laid out.
The best part of course, is that's actually free to play. In the time I spent with it, I didn't have to worry about things like energy levels and spending money. So that's probably the best surprise this game had!

This game has impressive graphics, at some points it looks just as good as a last-gen console game. So it feels like you're playing a full on Bleach game, just on your phone! That said, the sound would sometimes skip or play like half a second too late during battles. But there's also plenty of voice acting to make up for it, which is nice.
The gameplay looks really impressive as well, like it's a full fledged character action game. However, it can sometime boil down to button mashing and waiting for your abilities to cool down. So far, it doesn't feel like it requires as much skill as like a Platinum Game action title. But it's still fun to casually smash through enemies.
Oh and the gacha is kinda cruel as you'll mostly get character pieces. So you'll have to save up a bit before you can get a new character.

ArkResona

4.4

So out the gate, I'm not using a VPN and am able to play this game without any problems. The only downside I've run into so far, is that the loading screens are a bit long. And the first time I ran the game, the update was really long (I think it was like 15 minutes on WiFi.)
But that aside, the game has really nice animation and character design. The overall presentation of the game is well done with beautiful graphics and a catchy soundtrack. The game itself is a match-em-up, with your characters dealing damage to enemies based on how many tiles you can match. So it's some good solid fun, made better by its graphics!

This game is a joy to play! The sidescrolling action feels really fluid and the animation is beautifully done! Arcane Soul really gives me vibes like I'm playing Dust: An Elysian Tale (which was a fav game of mine!) The levels are short enough that it's the perfect length to play while I'm sitting and waiting, but I usually end up playing more than 1 level hahaha! [開心] There is a paid VIP system in the game, but I haven't really felt a need to use it. Since it's an action game, I found that my skill will carry me through the game so far!

UNCROWNED

4.4

So this is an interesting game that went under my radar for quite a while! Uncrowned is a Real-Time Strategy game (RTS) with some hero based elements. Each battle has you moving troops from your home base, to other buildings / camps around the battlefield, as you try to conquer all of them before attacking the enemy's stronghold. You only have a limited number of soldiers to send out at a time, but each stronghold you have will generate more. So you'll need to focus on which builds have soldiers and decide where you want to send them, as efficiently as possible!

(For a super obscure reference, the gameplay is similar to Soul Calibur III's Chronicles of the Sword mode.) However, each battle only lasts 4 minutes. So you'll want to act fast and conquer as much as you can before your enemy does! And to aid you are heroes you can earn by ranking up or earning at random. You can send them out to conquer bases and attack enemies, and they're WAY stronger than your normal soldiers.

The graphics are unfortunately a little underwhelming at points. The backgrounds and character portraits are nice, but the actual characters you see in battles are like little simple stick figures. But the music more than makes up for it! Some of the tracks remind me of some of the old school JRPG soundtracks, which is a great thing!

Check this one out if you want a game with some good solid fun and if you're willing to overlook some of the graphics.

PUBG MOBILE LITE

4.2

So to be 100% fair, I've never really played PUBG at all. Same goes for Fortnite. Like my main battle royale go-to is Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and it's Blackout mode. So jumping into PUBGM Lite is a brand new experience for me.

And I gotta say, getting a battle royale game running on a mobile device is pretty impressive! If you've never played PUBG before, the gameplay is as such:

You and dozens of other players are dropped into a giant open map with only one objective - kill each other and be the last person standing! Everyone starts without any weapons or gear, so it's up to you to scavenge what you can. You'll have to think carefully and plan out your movement / attacks. You could go look for supplies in crowded areas, but run the risk of getting attacked by someone with better gear. Or you could explore emptier areas, which is safer but has less quality gear.

All of the matches start the same, but the gear around the map is randomized. And after set amounts of time, you'll be forced into random parts of the map as a circle closes in. Be the last person or team standing and you'll win!

Since it's such a big game on a mobile device, the graphics and sounds are... well not that great. It runs a bit choppy, things look blocky and not very detailed, and the sound is extremely compressed. But the game works and functions like it's PC / Console counterparts, and that's the important part. So if you're looking to try a battle royale game, I'd say this is a pretty decent way to get your feet wet!

Alice Gear Aegis is like a character action game, probably closest to a mecha game really! Combat has you controlling your Alice Gear girl, dodging incoming attacks and shooting enemies. You hold down on your touchscreen, then let go and tap once your shot is powered up. The game auto-locks for you though, so you can focus on dodging and timing your actual power shots. And when you're close enough, you can tap to melee.

And there's a surprising amount of different weapons to use! I went with a giant hammer and an assault rifle. So I was able to hit hard and fast from a distance, but then close the distance and smack enemies hard! [哇噻]

As for the graphics, they're fully 3D! All of the girls are super cute and fully voiced, so the production values are high! Also, I noticed that despite the 3D characters and backgrounds and all the effects going on, the game ran super smooth on my phone! Which surprised the heck out of me!

And for value, the game rewards you with scouting tickets if you play and complete objectives. Since it's also an action game, I haven't had any trouble completing levels. Each girl and weapon has different advantages / disadvantages, so as long as you're practicing and getting better, you shouldn't have any trouble!

Definitely give this game a try if you want some solid action and impressive 3D visuals on your mobile device!

MEOW | Japanese

4.8

Super cute characters with a really charming design and presentation! MEOW is a turn-based RPG and with it's chibi character design, it gives me Final Fantasy III DS vibes! Except here, you get to build your own character and join in the adventure yourself!

I'm a huge fan of character creators, I can spend hours just making characters, rather than playing the actual game. And I happy to say there are a decent number of options for your character! And when you select your class, all of the designs are super cool as well! I honestly went with an archer, just cause I liked the costume hahaha! [開心]

Also since I keep praising the design and presentation. A lot of the cities and backgrounds remind me of Bastion, with it's vibrant colors and mix of nature of ancient structures. So it gets a big thumbs up from me there too!

If you like turn-based RPGs with some modern twists and really strong presentation, give MEOW a try!

PitzMaker

4.6

This is a super cute and easy to use avatar / character creator! There's a decent amount of options for your character's eyes, hair, and accessories! And you're even able to make simple backgrounds, add photo stickers and filters, and you can even some freedom in adjusting where the eyes, nose, mouth, and accessories go.

The overall design and UI is easy to use and is filled with cute colors and style. Not to mention the background music, which I can again only describe as cute! It really gets you in the mood to make your original character!

And as mentioned before, you have quite a few options when it comes to designing your character. You can purchase new outfits, backgrounds, and character models in the store, for relatively cheap. And as much as I always want more clothing options, there are still plenty of fun ones to use that are free!

Give this a try if you want to make a cute custom avatar or just have fun decorating your own anime character!

Eclipse Isle

5.0

So this game might have the most impressive graphics I've seen in a mobile game so far! The character designs remind me of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #(FE x SMT), with costumes from Dynasty Warriors. And the entire game uses 3D graphics, with a lighting system that gives it a Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild soft cel-shading. Not to mention, it ran rather smoothly on my phone without causing it to catch on fire!

The gameplay is a Hero Battle Royale, which sounds complicated on paper, but is pretty straightforward! Your character has certain abilities that work on a cooldown, but you can move about freely and use basic attacks. And like most BR games, you'll have to move around the large arena and gather supplies / weapons. You'll want to take advantage of your character's abilities and see if you can also upgrade the equipment you find. There's also bows and arrows you can use, which gives you a range advantage!

The game has support for English and it has tutorials that will walk you through everything. So if it sounds confusing, don't worry! Try it out and tell me this game isn't impressive!

Lumia Saga

4.4

A game oozing with charm! The art style reminds me of a blend of Persona Q, Final Fantasy, and the Project Mirai chibis. Combined with the light hearted and catchy music, it makes for a really cute and almost relaxing game experience!

The game is an action JRPG, where you can move around freely during battles and tap your moves to attack right away. Each attack costs energy and you have a limited amount. But you have a special attack that will recover energy, but has a cooldown period. So you'll have to focus on dodging attacks by moving around, then deciding which attacks to use so that you can maximize your energy usage.

Everything is rendered with 3D graphics and you can see dozens of enemies and other players in real time. My favorite detail being that anytime you modify your weapon, its appearance will change too. It's quite impressive to be honest!

Give this game a try if you enjoy JRPGs, but want something a bit more action-y!

Mr Bullet - Spy Puzzles

3.2

The gameplay is the shining part here. It's super simple, easy to learn, and there are a lot of puzzles that will test your skills. You play as Mr. Bullet and you have to kill all of the bad guys on the screen. To do this, you tap and hold down on the screen to make Mr. Bullet aim. You can see where the bullet is going to go and when you're ready to fire, you let go. You only have a limited amount of shots, so you want to take everyone out as efficiently as possible!

It seems really simple at first, as you shoot bad guys in straight lines. But the game introduces obstacles that block your shots, so you have to learn to bounce your bullets off of walls! It makes for a surprisingly fun and deep puzzle game!

The graphics and sound are unfortunately a little bland and going through the levels, there really isn't any story at all. On the upside, there are dozens of character skins to play with. But you have to earn them via gacha or spending lots of in game money on them. Also, the game has ads that play after several levels or as a way to earn in game rewards. You can pay to remove the ads, but honestly I just wait it out.

Brown Dust | Global

4.6

I've been having a blast playing through the game's story missions! The game has a tactical battle system, where you select what characters you want to fight and then place them on a grid. And you want to place them strategically, with defenders on the frontline and the fighters / ranged attackers behind them! Then when you're ready, the battles will play out automatically and victory is determined by your team and your layout!

The graphics and presentation are all great as well. I especially love the designs of the female characters! They are cuuuuute and I want to roll just for them! The only thing I wish though, is that the art carried over to the battles. All of the characters have mini-chibi sprites during battles and while they're cute, they're not as good looking as their main art!

You should try this game out if you're looking for a JRPG with a bit more of a focus on strategy! Or if you really like cute girls, that's a good reason too! [開心]

Norns Fantasy | Japanese

4.4

A highly addicting game that's easy to pick up and play! I'm a sucker for puzzle games and JRPGs, so whenever there's a game that can combine the two, I'm all for it!

The game has you selecting matching colored spheres in a row, trying to make the longest chain possible. You can also match special power spheres that will add the spheres around them, select some at random, or "slash" across the board to add them diagonally. The spheres you destroy via chaining them are then used to power up your party members. After a set amount of chains, your party will then attack the enemies. How well you matched the spheres, determines how strong your party will attack! It's super addicting and again, really easy to get the hang of.

The characters all have really great designs and the presentation is colorful and rich! The soundtrack is pretty strong as well, the battle musics were fun to listen to, although I did grow a bit tired of them during longer play sessions.

And the value is pretty good as well! The game has a gacha system and it does encourage you to spend money on limited time deals or premium currencies. But even then, the game seems balanced enough where you don't need to roll the rarest characters to play through.

This game is definitely work trying out. Whether you want to play in short bursts or to sit down for longer periods, there's definitely fun to be had!

pixiv

5.0

This is a really useful app to have as an artist or as someone who loves to browse art! I've been a member of Pixiv for a long time now, as I am an artist myself. But I've always used the website on my computer and I never checked it on my mobile phone. Mostly because I thought the mobile website version was difficult to use.

But with the app, it's really easy to open it up and just start looking through all of the art! So even if I'm out of the house or waiting in line, I can still discover new artists or find art of my favorite series! (While I was typing this comment, I found Yakuza art of Kiryu and Majima wearing blocky suits like that Kanye West meme hahaha!)

The other cool thing I learned is that you can also read artists' manga and novels on the app too! They have categories for them, so you can read them in a matter of seconds! Using the app actually taught me more about Pixiv hahaha!

(Also I know this doesn't have sound or gameplay or story. But the app has tons of content like manga, I'll have to give it a good rating for that!)

This is a great tie-in game for the Takagi-san series!

The presentation and graphics are cute and charming, with bright colors and easy to use menus that help the whole game pop! Plus, you get to see Takagi-san and hear her talk on the menu and in the game portions.

The first part of the game is playing Rock, Paper, Scissors with Takagi-san. You help Nishikata pick which one and the goal is to let Takagi win. Takagi will drop hints about which sign she'll pick and you have 10 seconds to decide. If you lose to her, you can then keep playing for a better reward! You can keep going up to 20 times for the biggest reward, but if you "win" against her, you will only receive the smallest reward.

The second part of the game is the AR function where you get to see Takagi-san come to life! However, you need to download and print out an AR marker first. And then, you'll need to get either the Standard or Full AR package.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO BUY IT THOUGH. If you lose 20 times to Takagi in the Rock, Paper, Scissors game, you will earn the Standard Package. You can then use earned Gacha Points to unlock new AR functions or other rewards, like production art or character icons.

If you're a fan of the Takagi-san series, this is definitely worth playing! It is a little confusing on unlocking the AR function. But if you keep playing the Rock, Paper, Scissors game, you'll unlock it in no time!

This game has exceptionally impressive graphics for a mobile game! It is fully 3D for most parts, with painted character portraits during conversations.

In the game, you get to build your own kingdom and manage resources so that you can conquer other players' kingdoms and keep expanding. You can also roll for unique soldiers to use in PVP army battles, including characters from the show. And yes, they did get the actors and actresses' likenesses! (I got an A rank Jon Snow for my free roll, so I'm happy!)

And I was also surprised that all of the cutscenes are fully voiced in Chinese and that there are high quality CGI cutscenes as well!

The only big downside is that you have to wait real time to build army units and upgrade your different buildings. But! You can collect tokens that can be used to speed up the process. And you can get them every 10+ minutes. (You just have to tap the treasure chest icon on the right side of the screen!)
