Mobile - The Weekender: Self-Isolation Edition

#1
The Weekender: Self-Isolation Edition

Well, it’s certainly been a bit of a week, hasn’t it? My thoughts go out to all our readers during this time – I hope you’re all staying safe, and staying sane. I hope I’m able to provide at least some relief from the current troubles with some news and updates from the world of mobile gaming.

Not much ‘new’ that’s interesting is coming out at the moment, but on the flip side a lot of the older stuff you’ll know and love is now really, really cheap. More on that below.

Meanwhile, thousands of miles away…

Out Now


InfiniteCorps (iOS)


The only premium game to grace our ‘Out Now’ list this week, we’ve brought up InfiniteCorps previously. It’s a decision-driven strategy/card game in the same vein as Reigns, but with a cyberpunk setting. You work for a corporation in charge of supply and logistics to the citizens of the futuristic ‘MegaTower’, where the citizens live.

Each loss resets the game with a slightly different set of cards, and you can collect the other sets as you play through the game. We haven’t had a chance to take it for a proper spin yet but we’ve been waiting for more games to try the Reigns formulate, so hopefully this lives up to its promise.

Teamfight Tactics (iOS & Android)


As you will have seen yesterday, Teamfight Tactics is now out on Mobile. It’s the last of current ‘big’ Auto Chess titles to make the crossing, so it’ll be interesting to see how you guys get on with it. I took it for a quick spin yesterday but so far my opinion hasn’t changed – it’s decent, with good production values but apart from using Hexes over a square grid, the differences between this, Underlords and OG Auto Chess are slight.

App Updates & News


War of the Zombie randomly got a couple of updates over the past two weeks, which we only just noticed because of something that flashed up on Steam. They’ve added a mobile rocket launcher vehicle, the ability for a 5th FOB as well as a host of other minor changes. It’s been getting a steady stream of new content since the start of January 2020, after no updates at all through 2019. Might be worth jumping back in, if you haven’t played it in a while!

The mobile version of Multiplayer Survival Horror game Dead by Daylight has been announced. You can pre-register now on either Google Play or iOS, and the full release is slated for April 16th, 2020. Not this game is only for those aged 18 or over.

As spotted by Pocket Gamer, Riot Games also released a dev diary video on Wednesday that goes into a little bit more detail on how the development of League of Legends: Wild Rift is coming along. This is going to be the ‘official’ mobile spin off of the popular PC MOBA, and will be made specifically for phones.

It’s still going to be 5v5 PVP, and the release is scheduled for later this year.

Free & Cheap Mobile Games


So, given the current COVID-19 situation, a lot of people are currently stuck at home looking for something to do, either for themselves or now their children now that a lot of schools are starting to shut. The mobile industry has generally responded with a wide range of sales, discounts, with even some games going for free.

There’s almost too much to list out specifically, but there are plenty of highlights I can throw up. For example:

  • Through the Ages is currently $4.99. This is only the second time it’s been discounted (Sept 2019) and the best price to date. This is on both iOS and Android.
  • Games like One Deck Dungeon, Galaxy Trucker… even the Majesty port are all showing deals. Some are best to date, some aren’t but still pretty good. The Sorcery! games are also in this list, and there are plenty more. Reigns: Game of Thrones is $1.99, as is This War of Mine.

My advice is to go check out our Guides section, go through our ‘Best Games’ list and see if there are any that have taken your interest that you haven’t jumped into yet, see if it’s on sale. Odds are it probably is.

What I will try and keep track of in more detail though are any notable free mobile games:

Seen anything else you liked? Played any of the above? Let us know in the comments.
