Hello mobile game lovers! With you AppTime Media and another selection of the best projects for the outgoing year. On our site, voting takes place with different nominations, so be sure to go and cast your vote for your favorite games. This time I will talk about the top mobile ports of 2023. If you don’t like it, write your list in the comments. OK? Go!
Night in the woods
The first of the contenders is Night in the Woods. The main character is played by the cat May, who returns to her hometown. It turns out that her friends still live there, so we start to establish contact with Possum Springs. Only at one moment strange things begin to happen, for example, someone’s hand is lying on the asphalt. The plot develops slowly, and in total we will have two endings.
They depend on who we spend the most time with. According to the gameplay, you have to run around the city, explore it, strum the guitar and even go through a roguelike with 10 rooms and 9 bosses. Yes, this is a game within a game. Take it, you will not regret it.
Albion Online is a sandbox game where you decide who you want to be. Also, there are no classes in the game, so the fighting style depends on the combination of armor and weapons. Since the project is cross-platform, you can play with friends and even raid caravans. If you join a guild, you will be able to capture territories, build town halls, shelters on them, and rise in the ranking. You can also buy a plot in the city or even a personal island where you can grow crops and then sell them. As for the enemies and bosses, they are divided into six factions. Hiking them can be done in solo and in a squad. In the dungeons, demons and other fiends of Hell await you. In general, fans of sandboxes and medieval fantasy are sure to familiarize themselves with it.
Now let’s talk about a great cyberpunk action game – Huntdown. There is so much testosterone and 80s spirit in this game that it is impossible to pass by it. Gamers have already found tons of references to classics like Judge Dredd and Robocop. There are only three characters, these are Anna Konda with an eye patch, John Sawyer with a steel jaw and the Mower – an updated droid for which they used prohibited software. The developers promise 16-bit graphics and animations in 60 FPS, and all this is done by hand. The soundtrack gives you goosebumps, especially if you have a nostalgia for the spirit of the time. In fact, Huntdown is a platformer with a huge number of enemies on the screen and a constant change of weapons, be it confiscated machine guns, laser cannons, grenades, katanas, and more. The game is ideally transferred to the times of SEGA Mega Drive. Already brings old cheekbones.
My Time at Portia
Do you want to start life in a remote town? No, this is not real life or Stardew Valley, but the mobile port of My Time at Portia. As planned, we have to restore my father’s workshop and return it to its former glory. To do this, you need to fulfill orders and grow crops, and seasoned gamers are advised to immediately engage in secondary quests, otherwise it will be hard later. You can also arm yourself with a reference book and father’s old workbench. Gradually, friendships are struck with the locals, and even love with some. By the way, Studio Ghibli itself breathed life into My Time at Portia. As for the gameplay, they offer a choice of a farm, crafting equipment, raising and training geese, clearing ruins and battling monsters. If there is not enough social activity in real life, urgently take this project.
Kill it with fire
And finally, I left the game from tinyBuild – Kill It With Fire. This is a real simulator of an Australian who, upon waking up, sees a huge spider in the corner. What to do? Of course, pick up a homemade flamethrower and burn the house to the ground. But if this option is not suitable, then there are more humane methods: a fly swatter, dichlorvos, shuriken or a shotgun. The problem is that some locations are quite large, so a small device, such as a spider detector, will help to detect small spiders. Well, if you are too lazy to take a steam bath – take an RPG and hell … oh, that is, launch a rocket into the barn and then let them look for the guilty. In total, the game consists of 10 levels, on which you need to complete tasks, although not necessarily. It is essentially a sandbox in which you entertain yourself. Want to buy? Great solution, only arachnophobes should think about it.
