Happy Thanksgiving! If you’re looking for something to play while you’re waiting for the turkey to cook, well… this wasn’t a huge week for games. But what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality.

Case in point: Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath.

But enough of my praising old games that you never got around to playing. On with the list!

Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath


While we haven’t had a chance to play the mobile version yet (it’s release honestly caught us by surprise), the original Xbox game was a cult classic. Critics adored it, but so few people bought the damned thing that it seemingly brought an end to the franchise. Don’t make the same mistake twice – give the mobile version a spin (or wait for our review to see how it performs on a touch screen).

The Longest Journey


Do you love a good point-and-click adventure? If so, you’re probably quite familiar with The Longest Journey. If not… well, it’s time to correct that, now isn’t it?

BattleLore: Command


Fantasy Flight Games might be the best name in board games today. And touch screens? They’ve proven to be amazing board game simulators. You’d think that FFG would have run with this, drawing from their immense back catalogue. But after releasing the great Elder Signs: Omens and Hey, That’s My Fish! in 2011, the studio seemingly went dark on new mobile releases. This week, that finally changed with the release of the (much-lauded) BattleLore: Command.



An indie darling that’s as visually appealing as it is playable comes to mobile long after its desktop debut. Dodge obstacles as you race along a pipe to survive across 11 levels.

Evil Genius Online


The Evil Genius franchise was one beloved by PC gamers, but this modern re-thinking suffers from some of the missteps of the free-to-play model (or so we thought when we looked at the game in its original Facebook release). Have our concerns been addressed since April? It’s time to find out if modern mobile gamers will receive this with any more love than they did Dungeon Keeper.

Oh My Giraffe


An endless eater? Well that just has Thanksgiving written all over it.

Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove, Sacred Grove


Arguably the #1 hidden object franchise is back, and this time they’re revisiting a fan favorite locale. It’s getting colder this time of year – both in Dire Grove and in your neighborhood – so bundle up and get hunting for those objects.

Trouble With Robots


Part card game, part strategy, part side-scrolling defense, we loved The Trouble With Robots on PC a few years back. Now that they’ve dropped the “The” from their title and moved to mobile, does the project still hold up? Fingers crossed!

Dynasty of Dungeons

dynasty of dungeons

A free-to-play RPG about positioning and mixing automated battles with the manual triggering of abilities. This could be the recipe for a hit or something that gets totally overlooked. Today’s the day we find out.



A minimalist puzzle game about moving dots, so that like-colored dots are touching. Seems easy, right? They always do until about level 10.
