After its 2015 release, The Walking Dead No Man’s Land is as alive as ever, or perhaps that’s not the best term to use. Or, maybe it is, for it all comes down to the survivors and the heroes that mirror the source material quite well. Many characters from the original TV show The Walking Dead are here and this game might be the perfect companion to it, but you can also play it if you are not a fan of the show for it is fantastic. It is a perfect marriage of tactical turn-based strategy action, with hero collector elements and the city builder setting, topped off with the RPG progression system. That and a whole lot more is what keeps this game going after so many years.
Being one of the earliest tactical games on mobiles, The Walking Dead No Man’s Land has pioneered many of the genre’s features and mechanics. This in turn has spawned an entire army of players and a quite wide community. Thus, we’ve decided to feature this game on our pages and do a section dedicated to reviews and guides for the community. A testimony to its quality can also be found in the countless positive reviews and scores this title has gotten.
On Google Play, The Walking Dead No Man’s Land Android has been downloaded over 10 million times, as expected, and holds a very good 4.5-star score out of over 750 thousand votes. On the iTunes App Store, The Walking Dead No Man’s Land iOS has an even better 4.7-star score out of over 22 thousand votes, and the game was updated just recently, with regular updates and new content additions. That alone speaks for itself, while its glory and popularity is not in any way connected to the popularity of the TV show, for the game has proven many times over that it can withstand the test of time and new gaming horizons, adapting constantly.
The highest quality and the best choice the producers of The Walking Dead No Man’s Land, Next Games, have made was to ground this game in the tactical action genre. It is so natural and so well-connected to the topic (zombie killing and navigating the harsh terrain) that it is a perfect marriage for sure. However, this game pairs that with hero collector, city builder, strategy, and RPG, and it is a very alluring mix of elements offered for expanded gameplay. Furthermore, making things more intriguing is that there is a strong factor of strategic puzzles you need to solve while you guide your group and develop their safe refuge. Lastly, the city building and development part brings all the familiar hallmarks of the genre, like quests, challenges, story missions, other modes, PVP outposts, and other things.
When you include original characters from The Walking Dead TV show in the game, who all bear a remarkable resemblance to the source material, it makes this game a serious homage to the original story, quests, challenges, story missions, other modes, PVP outposts, and other things. The Walking Dead No Man’s Land has everything a fan of the series would want and more, and it has endured all this time for its true gameplay quality.
Even though Elune mobile game came out recently, in mid-2019, it has built up quite a large online following. There are already community gatherings on Reddit and other forums, with Fan Wiki and the full shebang. We tried the game out and, in our opinion, it is one of the most advanced gacha strategy turn-based RPGs on mobiles currently, with last-gen graphics, many advanced featured, but also traditional mechanics players seek for in these games. We’ve dedicated an entire page to Elune game, with an in-depth review, guides, tips, and FAQ we’ve gathered from all various community sources.
Elune is offered by GAMEVIL, a company that hails from the Republic of Korea, but also has a seat in California, the U.S. They are both developers and publishers, and are perhaps better known for their subsidiary Com2uS. Besides Elune, they are behind such titles as MLB Perfect Inning 2020, Talion, Heir of Light, Dragon Blaze, and many more. With their Elune game, GAMEVIL managed to attract players worldwide, creating communities that use both Android and iOS mobile devices.
However, On Google Play, the game has a 3.8-star score with over 500 thousand installs, while the iOS audience received Elune much more warmly, with 4.8 stars. It is now exactly clear why there is such a big gap between an average user review on different platforms, but it may be due to the demanding requirements in terms of mobile phone tech. This game is very advanced in terms of graphics and animations, which is what makes its atmosphere so engaging. It uses well-established gacha turn-based strategy RPG elements, which are traditionally very well-received by the community, and polishes it up with 3D animations, incredibly detailed models, and impressive textures.
Elune might give your mobile device some trouble if you are running less than 2GB of Ram, but it is recommended that you have something even stronger. Perhaps that’s the reason for the somewhat weaker Android review score, for iOS devices are inherently stronger CPU-wise on average and users purchase new and improved models more regularly, compared to Android. Whatever may be the case, read about it more on our Elune game page, with an in-depth review and guides, just for you.
Game of Sultans became a widely popular mobile historical strategy game, despite some negative feedback the game got initially. And, it has its historical accuracy, hallmark strategy, and cool gameplay features to thank for that. It has consorts, viziers, heirs, unions, armies, and the whole shebang packed into the not so familiar strategy simulation Empire RPG. And, yeah, it is not so familiar because Game of Sultans was a relatively new concept when it came out and practically pioneered games where the player is an emperor in charge of various parts of the empire, presented through various gameplay elements.
Mechanist Internet Technologies. Co. Ltd. both developed and published Game of Sultans in 2018 and, as mentioned, the game got some mixed and moderate feedback. It currently stands at 4 Stars on the iTunes App Store and an even less 3.9-star score on Google Play. However, perhaps the game’s popularity will speak better about its quality, where it was downloaded over 10 million times for Android solely. We know, we know! Quantity can’t be a measure for success and quality. This is why we’ve chosen to feature a full review of the game on our site.
We’ve done an in-depth review of all of the in-game features by Game of Sultans, further followed up by the study of the game’s community. This also produced some interesting content and guides, which we’ve also presented on the same page as the game’s review. And, in short, we liked it.
Game of sultans may not be a game for everyone’s taste, but audiences that like this particular blend of genres like empire management, RPG, strategy, development, and history surely do enjoy it as some kind of a visceral experience. Game of Sultans is even a very competitive game at higher levels of end-game content, but in our experience, spending real money in-game is mandatory to be competitive in these kinds of games in general.
However, we did rate all of the categories we usually look at with mobile games we cover and Game of Sultans came out not so bad. Check it out and join the community if you’d like. We’ve created a corner where in-game content, guides, tips, and tricks are all refined and stacked in one place.
Archero mobile game has built up quite the following since its release in April 2019. And, this is mostly with little or no marketing done at all for the game was mostly recommended from ear to ear, which is how it came to be on our pages, or it was featured by other gaming sites. Needless to say, we were impressed from the start with the snappy and engaging gameplay of this action arcade game, but even more so by how it chose to present this old school genre.
Archero brought back the old school action arcade genre, with the same top-down view, and it has brilliantly updated it to the current state of the gaming industry. In the game, you guide your character, a single archer, or a lone ranger if you will, through stages filled with enemies who either charge you or shower you with various projectile attacks. Breaking through it all, Archero will test your reflexes as well as your wit, for being successful in this game will require a lot of both, which is why so many people are playing it and are a part of its huge community.
Habby is Archero’s developer and publisher, and the company brought the title to both Android and iOS. The game enjoys critical acclaim. On Google Play, it has a 4.4-star score with over 1 million votes and it was downloaded more than 10 million times. Similarly, on the iTunes App Store, Archero iOS has 4.5 stars from several thousand ratings and being #30 in the action genre.
Reddit, Youtube, various forums, and other sources are filled with Archero guides, topics, tips, tricks, and various FAQs. We’ve decided to dedicate a page to this game, with our in-depth review and guides composed by us and found among the community. And, most importantly, we’ve tried to answer the frequently asked questions as best we could, which are all found on our Archero webpage.
We highly recommend this game to any fan of the action arcade genre, or even if you haven’t played any games from that particular niche. It may surprise you with its deceptively simple gameplay at first glance, for it quickly becomes much more intriguing and complex. The game will test your gaming limits in lots of ways. Also, if you do like it, become a part of the community as you are welcome to participate in the section of our site dedicated to Archero review, guides, tips, tricks, and other community-oriented stuff.
Gacha Life is undoubtedly one of the most popular, weirdest, and peculiar mobile games currently. It outgrew the title ‘game’ and became almost a movement of sorts, with movies, pictures, YouTube videos, cute animations, drawings, and various other publications that have millions of views and are being made by children, as in, actual children of around 10 or even younger. It is in big part due to the nature of Gacha Life as a game, where it is more a comprehensive animation editor app that lets you create and animate your characters, and even create animated movies, with lines, script, camera angles, and all. This game has now arrived on our pages, finally…
Since this gaming app is aimed at kids mostly and given their unsupervised access to the web, it is not thus surprising that content creation and topics often stray into the naughty section, and we mean adult material. Flooded with LGBT and liberal 18+ ideas, which are transcribed onto Gacha Life Characters, this game has already grown into parental concern. But, the game itself is an Android and iOS casual gaming app, made by Lunime. Oddly enough, it is not even in the gacha genre, only perhaps in the broadest sense of the word.
Here, the focus is not on that, but on Gacha Life character creation, customization, and ultimately in making videos. So, the short version is, Gacha Life is a gaming app for making animations with pre-set assets, character customization, and various pre-set scenarios and mechanics. And, just in case you ever get confused by the multitude of gaming apps with the word Gacha in it, like Gacha Studio (Anime), Gachaverse (RPG), Gacha World, Anime Gacha!, Gacha Resort, Gacha Memories, and other, just know that they are all made by the same developer, Lunime. In fact, they all feature similar mechanics, which evolved and improved with each new title, and they peaked with Gacha Life, which is praised as one of the best of the series.
We did an in-depth review of the game and the entire community phenomenon, along with some guides and tutorials for the game. The community is mostly interested in tutorials about Gacha Life characters, how to animate them in different ways, making details move, drawing, making funny pictures, and all things a starter-up moviemaker would want to do in an app such as this. We’ve also rated the game through our categories and given our take on the phone community phenomenon, should it be more censored or not, is it actually harmful or beneficial to younger audiences, and similar stuff.
Game of Thrones: Beyond the Wall mobile game was unveiled by Gaea, HBO, and Behaviour Interactive almost a year ago. This strategy RPG that features collectible characters and brings new content separate from the TV show is now finally here. While there was little left for GoT fans to do but re-watch all episodes and rant about the ending, this title brings a new story, with some of the original characters. Its narrative is set Beyond the Wall, several decades before the events in the TV series Game of Thrones.
The storyline here begins after Lord Commander Brynden Rivers disappears beyond the wall. Ser Brynden Rivers is a character known to avid readers of Song of Ice and Fire books. He is also called Lord Bloodraven or later the Three-Eyed Raven. He is King Aegon IV Targaryen’s bastard son and he has served as the hand of the king after the Blackfyre Rebellions, where he gained recognition. His brother, King Aegon V Targaryen, sent him to the Night’s Watch where he later became Lord Commander. A dark mystery unveils after his disappearance as the Night’s Watch follows in his footsteps.
As the new Lord Commander, the player assembles a team of his heroes and traverses the dangerous frozen wastes, fighting giants, wildlings, and other dangers. The combat uses a turn-based strategy method with a very well organized visual setting and style. Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall mobile game is available on both Android and iOS, and we’ve made it our new feature.
Starting now, we will explore the entire Game of Thrones: Beyond the Wall universe and community to try and find the best possible content in terms of guides, solutions, and answers to questions that frequently arise. We will regularly update our page with the latest updates and development, and set our content accordingly. We hope you will join us in playing it and that we may find the answers together.
Among the many popular mobile games demanded by our esteemed readers, the audience will now have the chance to participate in building the Arknights community and content on our site.

If you haven’t played Arknights, it is a new and improved jab at the tower defense genre, which is combined with some other popular mobile gaming genres to bring engaging and satisfying gameplay but adapted to the light mobile way. The game has brought some interesting solutions as to the mechanics and the overall mix, while it also infuses it with an engaging story, characters that we get to know, and we get an emotional stake in it all.
The game is developed by two studios, Hypergryph and Studio Montagne, and it is built in Unity engine. It is published by Yostar games and already enjoyed success in China for about half a year before it came out worldwide in January 2020. The game enjoys positive feedback, with 4.5 stars on both Google Play and iTunes App Stores, and over 1 million downloads on each.
While there are innovative mechanics and an engaging storyline, this game’s main allure is the tower defense action, which has been fused with RPG and card collecting, to an impressive and quite addictive result. The player community has already grown exponentially and thus we will strive to create content for the players to improve your gaming experience in Arknights.
Arknights is a brilliant way to bring back tower defense in a sci-fi environment, with many new mechanics, improved familiar gameplay elements, and a mix of genres. If you love strategy, RPG, gacha, and similar mechanics, but enjoy the engaging action tower defense brings, this is the title to try out.

When the game that defined the genre transitioned to mobile in DOTA Underlords iteration, many were not impressed but the community was growing fast, despite the seemingly negative start. Now, it is as strong as any other title in this fresh auto chess genre and it helped define a lot of its attributes. We’ve opened up a special section on our site dedicated to the community, amassing all the guides, tips, player experiences, and following through all content and updates, which were aplenty, and it is available for all.
Valve had lengthy early access and beta stages before the game came out officially. A big part of the initial underwhelming feedback was the fact that Dota Underlords was in early access then. The gameplay was unfinished and seriously lacking at the time, but, on February 25th, 2020, it was out officially and the game looked and felt completely different than it did in 2019. It is now a triple-A title for sure. As with Dota 2, Valve took complete charge of this title’s development and publication, nurturing the game as their baby into something successful and beautiful.
Dota Underlords is a lot more story-driven game than Dota 2 and any other auto battler for that matter. Here, the narrative is taken perhaps even more seriously as it has been combined with gameplay in several high points in the game. But, the gameplay is the focus of the experience, as with the original game and the whole multiplayer competitive allure. this is an auto battler game, or what is popularly called auto chess or chess-inspired competitive strategy. If this is the first time you’re meeting with the genre, it’s rather simple to grasp, but the entire concept requires a high mastery level.
A single battle is being waged between eight underlords (8 online players) and they all fight against each other 1 vs 1, taking turns, each turn matched with a different opponent. The last guy standing wins, which is the core experience of this kind of competitive free-for-all setting. However, there are a lot of things players can do to up the stakes and increase their chances of victory, outside of combat and within the match itself.
You earn gold, purchase heroes, combine them into stronger characters, adjust your tactics, match characters according to their respective alliances, and much more. As far as the auto-chess online competitive experience goes, this is the most engaging as it gets for now. DOTA Underlords is now widely popular and it is for that reason that we’ve dedicated this special section of our site to the ever-growing community. Feel free to participate or benefit from all the content we accumulate here, which is produced by us but also extracted from various other community sources, forums, etc…
Mafia City mobile game is a popular title, despite a somewhat controversial advertising campaign and negative feedback which followed right after its release, 3 years ago. However, it still has a very strong and wide community, and people are playing it competitively, which is why there is a need for further study. Reaching a paywall, not being able to grow your base, and similar things are happening to a lot of people who like competing in this mafia-themed game, so we will try and brief you with all the latest developments, create guides to get around many of the common problems and obstacles, and keep the community alive.
Mafia City distinguishes itself from other strategy mobile games in more ways than one. Primarily, there’s been an outburst of funny videos from gameplay footage in form of memes, which also includes other pop culture references, and some of the videos even reached a few hundred thousand views in less than a week. If you want to check them out, just Google it: ‘Mafia City meme’. Secondly, it’s mafia theme is so well incorporated into the game that it makes up for the 90% of the game’s comedy factor, while it is also the main gameplay premise.
This game is developed and published by Yotta Games and it was dished out in 2017. As mentioned, it has had some negative feedback, and even ironic reviews, which is a thing that was started with the games that usually have a large marketing campaign but end up not reaching the set expectations. However, people still found a way to enjoy it and the developers have improved the experience since 2017.
You are the mafia boss, and you control your empire from top to bottom. You have your turn and your property, which is your home base you need to evolve in a familiar fashion from mobile strategy games. Combat is done in a real-time strategy manner, while units are comprised of various criminal archetypes, like bikers, brawlers, and such. Mafia City is visually very good, especially the Babes, i.e. your secretaries, they are some hot models of women, with a hint of anime-style animation, but mostly very attractive.
Playing as a stereotypical Mobster in a strategy game is fun and apparently has managed to reach its audience. We would like to invite all of you who love this game to participate with us in creating guides, tips, tricks, and follow up all content, old and new, as it comes out.
