Let’s get to it!

Still Alive [Game Size: 396 MB] (free)

Genre: PVP / Shooter / “Last-man-standing” – Online

tl;dr review:

In the midst of the many PUBG-like games, Still Alive is a delightfully fresh take on the survival PVP action shooter genre.

3 playable characters, each with their unique weapons and skills, and an ability to play both training and ranked matches, as well as creating custom matches (think Overwatch) makes for an overall REALLY well-made game.

Monetizaiton-wise, you CAN acquire beneficial gear-upgrading materials through IAPs, although they’re also rewarded for free every 4 hours, and for wining matches.

Free Fire Battlegrounds [Game Size: 249 MB] (free)

Genre: Battle Royale / Shooter – Online

tl;dr review:

With its 50-player online Battle Royale matches (think Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds), Free Fire is a nice, more casual, alternative to NetEase’s 3 similar games.

The matches are quick (often around 10 minutes), there’s no pay2win monetization, the game runs smoothly, and it appears that all players are ACTUAL players instead of bots!

Only slight downside is that the game offers less settings for customizing the gameplay experience, although I didn’t find this to personally be an annoyance.

Duke Dashington Remastered [Total Game Size: 33 MB] (free)

Genre: Puzzle / Platformer / Indie – Offline

tl;dr review:

Navigate left, right or up and you continue moving until you hit an obstacle or change direction. That’s the puzzle element that makes platformer Duke Dashington Remastered both fun and challenging.

Oh, and the fact that you only have 10 seconds to complete each level!

The game’s a true indie game, with around an hour or two of gameplay and and endless mode to keep us entertained for even longer.

$2 removes all ads from the game, of which there are a few if you play for free.

Hot Guns [Total Game Size: 60 MB] (free)

Genre: Action / Platformer / Indie – Offline

tl;dr review:

Running and jumping around the 6 levels (more coming soon) with guns blazing is a real challenge in the retro platformer Hot Guns.

The game’s fun, has some neat 8-bit graphics, can be finished in about 2 hours, and only monetizes through instantly close-able ads.

Planet of Heroes [Total Game Size: 524 MB] (free)

Genre: MOBA / Brawler – Online

tl;dr review:

As a simplified 3V3 MOBA with just a single lane (double jungle) and fast 5-10 minute matches, Planet of Heroes actually does really well.

However, the monetization brings several pay 2 win advantages, such as chest openings, upgradeable gear for heroes and more.

The game’s fun because of the quick matches, but I can’t recommend it as a “main” MOBA to invest all your time into.
