The Best Mobile Games of July 2016

Let me guess — you’ve spent the entire month playing Pokemon GO and, as a result, missed every other game worth playing. But now they’ve updated the game, you’re mad, and ready to get caught up.

Good news: you’ll find a handy cheat sheet below. 🙂

Cathy’s Crafts


GameHouse’s time management games have become the gold standard for the genre over the years, and their latest offering is no exception. Cathy’s Crafts takes you into the world of arts and crafts, and adds a great new inventory management feature that we haven’t seen in other TM games.

Super Stickman Golf 3

The long-awaited third entry in the physics puzzle / golf series arrives, and it brings a free-to-play twist to the franchise for the first time. Don’t let that scare you: this just means an opportunity to unlock card packs and wager in-game currency against other players. A competitive spirit defines the SSG3 experience, and we couldn’t be happier about it.



Originally an exclusive for the PlayStation Vita, Drinkbox Studios’ unique game of swordsmanship tasks players to balance the attacks of multiple monsters at once — even if you can only see one at a time!

Twilight Struggle

One of the most popular enthusiast board games of all time finally went digital this month, retaining everything that made the tabletop version so fantastic in the process. Prepare yourself to relive the entire Cold War from beginning to end — but will history see the same outcome?

Crypt of the Necrodancer


Roguelike meets rhythm! Explore a dungeon, but keep moving to the beat unless you want to end up in the stomach of some terrifying disco dangers. Crypt of the NecroDancer is a quirky twist on a familiar genre that saw rave reviews in its initial PC release. We’re pleased to report it’s just as much fun on mobile devices.

Dead Venture

dead-venture-feature-2What’s more fun than running from zombies? How about running OVER zombies? Dead Venture is a game of pedestrian elimination — but don’t worry, these walkers were dead to begin with. Damned zombies, always cluttering up the roads…

Suicide Squad: Special Ops

One of this summer’s biggest movies received a surprise (and spectacular) mobile release this month, giving players the chance to step into the shoes of three different anti-heroes as they try to survive as long as possible in first-person combat. This one is truly free, too, so don’t worry about in-app purchases muddying down the experience.

Guild of Dungeoneering

Guild of Dungeoneering tips cheats strategies

Why manage a team of dungeon explorers when you could manage the dungeon? That’s the idea behind Guild of Dungeoneering… sort of. You’ll actually be managing both, building out rooms and placing monsters by drawing cards from a deck, placing them as optimally as you can. It’s a fresh mix of board, card, and roguelike gaming, and it works very well.
